  • Renewable energy surges, driven by solar boom and high fuel prices, report finds

    The world will add a record amount of renewable electricity capacity this year as governments and consumers seek to offset high energy prices and capitalize on a solar boom. It is expected to reach 440 GW by 2023, bringing global installed capacity to 4,500 GW, roughly as much as the combined generating capacity of the United States and China. The supply chain for wind turbines is not growing fast enough to meet demand, and the grid must be upgraded and expanded to account for the intermittency of solar and wind power. To meet the goals of the Paris climate agreement, emissions need to be halved by 2030 and cut to "net zero" by mid-century. Countries will discuss setting international targets for renewable energy rollout at the UN climate summit.

  • Wind energy may enhance coolant power needs in nuclear plants

    An international team led by researchers at the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Jodhpur has proposed offshore wind farms as an earthquake-resistant alternative energy source. The proposed methodology involves the estimation of nuclear reactor coolant power requirements, the design of offshore wind turbines, and seismic safety assessments. The proposed 15 MW offshore wind farm features three NREL 5 MW turbines supported by monopile foundations to serve as additional emergency backup power to meet the cooling power needs of the existing nuclear power plant. The presented method serves as an excellent framework for assessing the seismic resilience of nuclear power plants and the integration of wind energy resources during interrelated events such as earthquakes and tsunamis.

  • Supply chain snarls that strangled wind power are nearly gone

    The World Health Organization declared an official end to the Covid-19 global emergency earlier this month, but supply chain disruptions caused by the pandemic may take longer to subside. That's the prediction of Henrik Andersen, CEO of Vestas Power Systems, one of the world's largest wind turbine manufacturers. While supply chains are stretched, the cost of key items like steel — the main material used in wind turbines — has soared during the pandemic. As a result, profits at Vestas' wind turbine business will roughly halve in 2021 compared to 2020. Getting fully back on track will require continued easing of global supply chains, especially in China, which only eased its Covid-zero policy in December.

  • Britain looks to widen renewables support scheme

    The UK plans to expand its flagship renewable energy support scheme, the Contracts for Difference (CfD) scheme, to encourage investment in the sector. Under CFDs, generators supply electricity at a fixed, pre-agreed price for the duration of the contract and sell low-carbon energy to the market. Potential changes to the scheme could see applicants rewarded for "non-price" factors, such as supply chain sustainability or addressing skills gaps and innovation. This could help drive investment in the sector, expand the economy and boost the UK's energy security. For example, the government has set targets for a dramatic increase in wind power as it seeks to achieve a goal of net-zero emissions by 2050 and becomes more reliant on imported energy after Russia's invasion of Ukraine disrupted supplies. Critics say the lack of new investment and incentives means it cannot provide any new impetus to the country's green energy industry.

  • Denmark's energy consumption down in 2022 as renewables gain ground

    The main factors behind the decline were a 29% drop in natural gas consumption and a 3.4% drop in coal demand. The reduction in natural gas consumption in 2022 is due to higher natural gas prices, encouraging consumers to "save gas," according to the DEA on Thursday. In contrast, consumption of petroleum products increased by 5.3%, "mainly due to higher sales of fuel for domestic and international aviation at Danish airports." During the same period, renewable energy consumption increased by 5.3%. According to the DEA, energy production from wind and solar cells could grow 22 percent by 2022 and provide nearly 60 percent of the nation's electricity supply. By comparison, solar and wind will only account for 47 percent of Denmark's electricity supply by 2021, according to Xinhua. Preliminary DEA figures also show that the decline in energy consumption would reduce carbon dioxide emissions from energy consumption by 0.9 percent in 2022.
