A new paper called ‘Sailing on Solar’, commissioned by Environmental Defense Fund Europe and developed by Ricardo, showcases a vision of how international shipping can meet its target of at least halving emissions by 2050, while at the same time helping developing nations leverage the emerging clean energy economy. The paper focuses on green ammonia produced from surplus renewable electricity.
Under EU State aid rules, the European Commission has approved Polish plans to support the increase of the regasification capacity (from 5 to 7.5 billion cubic metres per year), as well the development of additional functionalities, of the LNG terminal in Świnoujście, Poland.
The global maritime industry is now on the threshold of a committed move towards renewable energy, with hydrogen as the potential acid test in the shift away from fossil fuels, said Japanese electrical drive firm Yaskawa Environmental Energy / The Switch.
The SOC4NH3, Solid Oxide Cell based production and use of ammonia, project which is supported by ammonia-producer Haldor Topsoe and the University of Aarhus, aims to develop ammonia’s options as both a sustainable fuel and also a solution for saving green power from wind and sun.
The unexpected increase in solar and wind power in the US will result to a decrease of coal in the next few years. Renewable energy, led by solar and wind, is foreseen to be the fastest-developing source of US electricity generation for at least the next two years, according to a report published Friday by the US Energy Department.
The US Energy Information Administration released its Annual Energy Outlook 2019, including a Reference case and six side cases, examining the robustness of key assumptions. The AEO2019 Reference case expects significant continued development of US shale and tight oil and natural gas resources, along with continued growth in use of renewable resources.
According to EIA, 23.7 gigawatts (GW) of new capacity additions and 8.3 GW of capacity retirements are expected for the U.S. electric power sector in 2019. The additions are embodied by wind (46%), natural gas (34%), and solar photovoltaics (18%), with the remaining 2% consisting primarily of other renewables and battery storage capacity.
Global OTEC Resources, a business aspiring to bring a new form of renewable energy to tropical resorts, has released images of its first design concepts. The company has reached a cost model for harnessing the thermal energy stored in our oceans which is comparable to, if not cheaper than, the cost of running diesel generators.
OPEC released its 2018 World Oil Outlook. Namely, all forms of energies will be required in the future, but oil will still be the fuel with the largest share in the energy mix. In addition, natural gas witnesses the largest demand growth in absolute terms, and renewables the largest growth in percentage terms.
A new project launched in Germany is intended to develop new technologies to support the country’s energy transition using methane-based fuels from renewables. The MethQuest will gather 27 partners to collaborate on research and development work over a period of three years in six joint projects.
