Watch: 2019 – 2030 marks the decade of action towards renewables

The International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) published a booklet focusing on the progress of renewable energy in the future, which is expected to double by 2030 to advance the global energy transformation, achieve sustainable development goals and a pathway to climate safety.

Greece is crucial for US plans to sell more natural gas to Europe

According to Al Jazeera, the European market hangs in the balance as the US take aim at Russian-Turkish energy alliance. Greece is now proving to be a test case of the power of liquefied natural gas (LNG) to get market share, while the US is taking notice by the boosting US LNG sales to Europe.

Natural gas and renewables become more profitable options in Spain

Energy produced at coal-fired thermal stations made up less than 5% of all electricity generated in 2019 in Spain, as natural gas and renewables become more profitable options. According to figures that Red Eléctrica de España (REE), the national power grid operator, advanced to EL PAÍS, the country has dramatically reduced its reliance on coal-fired power, and as a direct result, carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from electricity generation fell 33.3% in 2019.

Floating wind farm starts generating power off Portugal

According to Bloomberg, a floating wind turbine off the coast in northern Portugal began transmitting electricity to the grid- indicating a crucial step for a technology that can potentially increase the potential for offshore wind power. Namely, it is said that the WindFloat Atlantic project is backed by European energy companies EDP Renovaveis SA, Engie SA as well as Repsol SA and uses the floating platform developed by Principle Power Inc.

Power-to-X to be the carbon-neutral energy storage technology of the future

Many climate experts predict that the next ten years are crucial, thus our actions within this decade will decide whether we are able to reach the ambitious goals of the Paris agreement limiting the global temperature increase to 1.5°C until 2050. Yet, recent studies show that G20 nations are currently failing to reach their climate goals.

Zero-carbon electricity overtakes fossil fuels in Britain for 2019

The decline in coal-fired power, together with the rise in renewable energy leads to the cleanest energy year on record for the UK. For the first time, the amount of zero carbon electricity used by the UK’s homes and businesses surpassed that from fossil fuels for a full twelve months.

Watch: How MAN LNG-to-power works

The video, issued by German manufacturer MAN Energy Solutions, explains an alternative, cleaner way to power generation, named ‘LNG-to-power’, as a key element in MAN’s efforts to achieve a carbon-neutral future. LNG-to-power offers a single source solution, wherever energy is needed. 

Floating offshore wind turbine project receives $3.3 million grant

The University of Texas at Dallas received a $3.3 million grant from the US Department of Energy (DOE) for its vertical axis floating offshore wind turbine; The grant is part of the Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E) and will be used for designing and building the turbine prototype.

Watch: Project aims to develop a full-size tidal energy harnessing system solution

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.
