As part of its commitment to energy transition, the Port of Antwerp inaugurated the first solar concentrator farm in the European process industry. This energy technology generates eco-friendly heat from concentrated sunlight that can be used by industrial companies.
Findings of a study performed by the Port of Rotterdam Authority, Stedin and TenneT into the consequences of the energy transition for the power grid in Rotterdam’s port area, estimate that there will be a substantial increase by a factor of two and possibly even four, in the demand for green and other electric power over the next few decades on the part of Rotterdam’s industrial sector.
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.
On the occasion of the launch of its Energy Transition Outlook for 2019, DNV GL issued a video depicting the next generation talking about the energy transition. The children are talking on energy and provide their own forecasts for the future of energy.
The energy transition and digitisation are the two strategic challenges facing large industrial ports. In addition, the EU can offer port authorities and industrial clusters significant incentives to achieve the transition toward the CO2-neutral ports of the future. For this reason, Antwerp and Rotterdam Port Authorities will organise a joint event for European policy makers, with contributions from experts from the world of science, industry and logistics.
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.
