Watch: Construction begins for zero-emission Ceiba

Sailcargo announced that construction has officially begun for Ceiba, a 148-foot emission-free cargo tall vessel, that will feature a 100% electric engine, solar batteries, panels and wind turbines, to make all auxiliary power 100% renewably sourced. 

Watch: Floating OTEC device revealed

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. 

Watch: The design of world’s most powerful tidal turbine

The animation video unveils the design of a new tidal turbine, as part of the FloTEC project, funded by the EU’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme. The Orbital O2 2MW, designed by Orbital Marine Power, is targeted to be deployed at EMEC in Orkney in 2020. The company believes that, when launched in 2020, it will be the most powerful tidal generating platform in the world.

Watch: New research to optimize floating renewables devices

Research at HR Wallingford, in collaboration with the Coastal and Hydraulics Laboratory, has developed a toolkit which can be used to optimize the design of floating offshore renewable energy devices, by accurately simulating the response of these floating structures under realistic sea states.

Watch: Greater energy efficiency to reduce energy demand from 2030

In this video, Remi Eriksen, Group President and CEO of DNV GL, and Sverre Alvik, ETO Programme Director, explain the findings of the Energy Transition Outlook. They say that until 2050, energy from renewables will meet 50% of our energy needs. However, currently we are on course to miss the 2⁰C goal by Paris Agreement.

Renewables to be fastest-growing energy source by 2040

As part of the recently launched BP Energy Outlook 2018 examining the ‘most likely’ path for global energy markets through to 2040, BP’s chief economist Mr. Spencer Dale explores the acceleration of renewables, highlighting that renewables in power are the fastest-growing energy source accounting for over 50% of the increase in power generation.

Scotland launches project supporting hydrogen in transport

“Surf ‘n’ Turf” is a community energy project using hydrogen to open up new opportunities in the Orkney Islands in northern Scotland. The video explains the channelling of renewable energy from tidal turbines and a wind turbine into a hydrogen network that provides heat, power and eventually fuel for transport.

Solar power moves forward in Rotterdam

Port of Rotterdam informed that solar power is starting to gain ground in the port, with sizeable expanses of roof surface fitted with solar panels at the RDM site and Waalhaven and many of buoys, dolphins and waterway markings already powered by their own solar panels.
