In fact, according to a recent statement, Leask Marine Ltd. has been presented as a key strategic associate for the Magallanes Renovables’ “OCEAN_2G” project. Namely, the OCEAN_2G (Second Generation technologies in ocean energy) innovation project aims to test; validate and pre-certify an innovative full-size tidal energy harnessing system solution ready to enter into European and global markets, further boosting the growth performance of industrial partners of the consortium and being a worldwide referent in the manufacturing of floating platforms for producing electrical energy from tidal currents.
In fact, Rystad Energy, the energy research and business intelligence company providing data, tools, analytics and consultancy services to the energy industry, reports that energy projects that need oil prices above $60 per barrel in order to break even risk being uncommercial going forward.
UNCTAD launched its 2019 Trade and Development report, focusing on the global financial crisis in relation with the battle against climate change, arguing that the struggle to create jobs is real, the environmental breakdown being a serious threat, adding that these challenges have resulted to new targets and goals to ensure a sustainable and safe future.
By mid-century, the energy mix will be split almost equally between fossil and non-fossil sources, with oil declining steeply after 2030, but gas continuing to grow before leveling off at 29% of the energy mix by 2050, says DNV GL in its latest Energy Transition Outlook.
In the most recent Energy Transition Outlook, DNV GL presents its timeline of the next 30 years of the energy transition, which shows many astonishing milestones. Namely, the one of the key takeaways of the timeline is the peak of energy supply and demand, but there are other significant milestones as well. According to the timeline oil will peak at 2022, while 4 years later transport energy demand will peak.
In light of DNV GL’s Energy Transition Outlook 2019 launch, this infographic describes 10 measures that aim to help close the emissions gap to well below 2°C. However, DNV GL added that policies must also be developed in order to mitigate at least three fronts at the same time: higher energy efficiency, more renewables, and industrial-scale CCS.
As part of its Energy Transition Outlook 2019, DNV GL provided an independent outlook on the maritime energy future examining how the energy transition will affect the industry. The report forecasts that new fuels, alongside energy efficiency, will play a key role on meeting the IMO greenhouse gas ambitions.
DNV GL issued its Energy Transition Outlook for 2019 examining the energy future through to 2050. The forecast says the technology available is able to deliver the Paris Agreement climate goals, but only with strongly enforced policies aimed to enhance Nationally Determined Contributions.
Germany-based MAN Energy Solutions announced it has become a partner of the Bavarian Hydrogen Council, focusing on expanding hydrogen technology in Bavaria. As partner, the company will work with other major players from politics, finance and science to drive the development of hydrogen technology.
A new wave of UK field development projects are to be sanctioned towards 2022, poising the UK offshore scene for a timely comeback, according to energy research firm Rystad Energy. It forecasts that FIDs could be reached on as many as 38 new UK offshore projects over the next three years.
