Partners consider the creation of offshore solar panels

A consortium consisting of Tractebel, Jan De Nul Group, DEME, Soltech and Ghent University announced the launch of a new project in the field of marine floating solar technology. The partners believe that solar photovoltaic panels in offshore waters are one of the essential future green energy sources. Combined in the same location with aquaculture and offshore wind power, this technology aspires to make a more efficient use of available space. 

Watch: How port of Rotterdam uses solar power

The Port of Rotterdam published a video focusing on the solar panels that are the port’s most sustainable energy sources, highlighting the importance of renewable energy and the sustainable development that will follow.

DNV GL to support floating solar project in Singapore

DNV GL has been contracted by Singapore’s national water agency, PUB, as technical advisor for the 50 MW floating solar photovoltaic (PV) project at the Tengeh Reservoir in Singapore. When completed, the floating solar project will be one of the largest single floating solar systems globally. 

Floating power plants could recycle CO2 from the sea

Floating solar, methanol islands on the ocean could be able to produce enough energy to allow CO2-neutral global freight traffic, according to a group of researchers from ETH Zurich, the Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI), Empa, the Universities of Zurich and Bern and the Nowegian University of Science and Technology in Trondheim.

The Netherlands to release its largest floating solar farm

The Central Government Real Estate Agency (RVB), Rijkswaterstaat (RWS) and the Port of Rotterdam Authority plan to construct a new floating solar farm in Rotterdam’s western port area. Therefore, they seek for the ideal participant to operate the new facility, which is reported to be the largest of its kind to be ever constructed in the Netherlands. The partners announced that they will organise a market consultation on May 8.

7 green shipping techs to get along with IMO’s sulphur cap

Based on IMO’s strict sulphur regulations, the shipping industry is looking for ways to take its shipping in a greener and more sustainable path by innovating in the technological fields. As IMO has demanded, the shipping industry’s sulphur emissions should not exceed the 0.50% m/m of sulphur, by 2020 unless the ships are equipped with scrubbers or get along with other options available. 

IRENA: Renewable Energy to have future geopolitical effects

IRENA, the Assembly of the International Renewable Energy Agency, launched ‘A new World’ report, according to which, the Global Commission on the Geopolitics of Energy Transformation supports that the geopolitical and socio-economic consequences of a new energy age may be as profound as those which accompanied the alter from biomass to fossil fuels two centuries ago. These include changes in the position of states, the importance of new leaders, more energy actors, alter in trade relations and the emergence of new alliances.

EIA: New electric generating capacity to occur from renewables and natural gas in 2019

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.

Solar power on ship able to supply continuous power, report says

A research paper focused on the analysis of solar power trials on-board the high speed RoRo vessel Blue Star Delos. The paper, published in the Journal of Marine Engineering and Technology, notes that a low-voltage marine solar power system is able to ensure a continuous stable supply of power.
