Renewables accounted for 49% of power generation growth in 2017

The power sector is the single biggest market for energy, absorbing over 40% of primary energy in 2017, and leading the energy transition, through renewables and electrification, according to BP’s Statistical Review of World Energy. Renewables accounted for almost half of the growth in power generation (49%).

Transition to a sustainable energy system is too slow, says Equinor

The transition to a more sustainable energy system is too slow. A sustainable development path, consistent with the Paris Agreement target, does not allow for further delays in policy, industry and consumer action to reduce emissions, according to Equinor’s new Energy Perspectives report.

New study to provide data to improve renewable energy sector

RINA will conduct a study on “Research needs on the use of Earth observation data for the benefit of renewable energy exploitation and deployment.” The study aims to provide the European Commission with an in-depth analysis of how Earth observation data are currently used in six renewable energy sectors.

IEA: Global energy demand, carbon emissions rise in 2017

Global energy demand rose by 2.1% in 2017, more than twice the previous year’s rate, boosted by strong economic growth, with oil, gas and coal meeting most of the increase in demand for energy, and renewables seeing impressive gains, according to IEA. As a result, energy-related carbon emissions increased by 1.4% in 2017, after three years of remaining flat.

Three countries are in the front of renewable energy development

After renewable energy production experienced its uptake in 2016, 165 gigawatts of new capacity are now supplied from clean sources. In this new reality there are three countries which will responsible for two-thirds of global renewable energy expansion to 2022: China, USA, and India.

US to initiate energy saving projects

The US Department of Energy’s High Performance Computing for Materials Program, will try to find industry partners to participate in short-term, collaborative projects for alternatives which will improve energy saving. This funding aims to help address key challenges in developing, modifying, and qualifying new or modified materials that can perform well in extreme environments. 

Seven trends shaping the global energy market

Global demand for energy is set to continue to grow over the next two decades as prosperity increases and the world’s population rises. However, the mix of fuels used will change, driven by technological advances and environmental concerns, BP says.

Offshore wind industry growing in Taiwan

Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy signed a MoU with Yeong Guan Energy Technology Group to collaborate on the development of an offshore wind supply chain in Taiwan. Currently, there are over 10 GW of projects under planning in Taiwan, which could make Taichung Harbor a regional hub for the offshore industry.

New York unveils US’ first offshore wind master plan

Governor of New York Andrew M. Cuomo released the New York State Offshore Wind Master Plan, which will guide the development of 2.4 gigawatts of offshore wind by 2030, enough to power up to 1.2 million homes with clean energy and support the creation of thousands of jobs.

EU takes strong stance against deep-sea mining

This proposal highlights the importance of applying the precautionary principle to the emerging deep-sea mining sector. It calls on the Commission and EU Member States to support an international moratorium on commercial deep-sea mining exploitation licences.
