The International Energy Agency (IEA) has recently issued its Renewables 2019 report with the aim to analyse and forecast renewable energy and technologies from 2019 to 2024; providing global trends and developments for renewable energy in the electricity, heat and transport sectors.
European Regional Development Fund awarded Marine Power Systems GBP 4.3 million to develop a system that includes a technology with both floating offshore wind and wave energy, boosting the opportunities for energy generation in deep water locations.
Seven major companies of the energy and maritime sector, signed an agreement in order to develop new projects that can offer to the the production, transport and storage of hydrogen. Through the agreement, companies assist in Belgium’s climate target to reduce CO2 emissions by 80% until 2050.
An estimated 19 GW of new offshore capacity is expected to be added in Asia Pacific excluding China (APeC) over the next 10 years, making it a key region for global offshore wind, according to Wood Mackenzie, that noted however that the success of future offshore wind in the area will depend on costs coming down.
A group of researchers from various institutions such as Princeton University, published their findings in Nature Climate Change on Monday, November 18, forecasting that wind farms will produce significantly more energy than anticipated. This will come as a result of the world is getting windier while developers are installing more turbines to generate electricity from breezes.
SSE, a UK-listed energy company, urges the next UK government to move faster on offshore and onshore wind projects in the race of achieving the country’s net zero targets by 2050, calling political leaders to place renewable energy as a priority in their efforts of fighting climate change.
MAN Energy Solutions and Wessels Marine GmbH have announced a technical showcase where the 2017-retrofitted ‘Wes Amelie’, a 1,036-TEU feeder container ship, will use liquefied SNG (Synthetic Natural Gas) produced from renewable electrical energy as drop-in fuel.
The International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) launched its “Navigating the way to a renewable future: Solutions to decarbonize shipping” report during Global Maritime Forum’s Annual Summit in Singapore, highlighting the importance of reducing shipping emissions and following the path towards a carbon-zero industry, in line with IMO’s sustainability targets.
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.
Swedish energy company Vattenfall, along with its partner Wallenstam, informed that they have cancelled the Taggen offshore wind project in Sweden, as the Swedish Armed Forces said no to the wind farm development. The Swedish Armed Forces rejected not only the new application, but the whole project, as it would be near the Ravlunda shooting range.
