VINCI Energies has won a project that could be at the spearhead of many other similar projects for EU, Chinese and US firms. A €26.8m contract for 8 pv power plants with a combined capacity of 17 MW, to be built over a period of only 10 months. Strategically the project will diversify Senegal’s energy mix and electrify the country’s isolated regions. The power plants will use 62,850 panels overall and produce the annual energy consumption for 140,000 people. The project represents a €26.8 million investment, financed by the German bank KFW and Senelec.

EV Infrastructure: Iceland Leads The Way, With Fast Chargers On Main Highway

ON Power, a part of Reykjavik Energy, has signed a contract with ABB for the delivery and installation of 15 Terra multi-standard DC chargers type 53 CJG at various points along Iceland’s main highway. Today there are over 1,400 electric vehicles on the road in Iceland due to a state-financed incentive program, which supports the purchase of electric vehicles. The tender for fast chargers is part of the country’s campaign to promote and expand Iceland’s e-mobility strategy by increasing the availability of flexible and robust charging stations along central locations of the national highway across the entire country.

Clean Energy Drives Digitalization In Power Sector. Market Growth: $64Bn by 2025

A shift is coming in the energy industry with a focus on hardware to the increased importance of software in order to make systems more efficient, resilient, and digital. Digital technologies for fossil fuel operation and maintenance are big business today, but activity is shifting towards services for distributed renewables and the connected home. New energy innovations will be centred on digital technologies and the strategic use of data, according to new research published today.

Amazon Launches Biggest Wind Farm Yet, Generating Over 1,000,000 MWh Each Year

Amazon has announced that its largest wind farm yet—Amazon Wind Farm Texas—is now up and running, adding more than 1,000,000 MWh of clean energy to the grid each year. In total, Amazon has launched 18 wind and solar projects across the US, with over 35 more to come. Together, they will generate enough clean energy to power over 330,000 homes annually. The Farm includes more than 100 turbines – each over 300 feet tall with a rotor diameter more than twice the wingspan of a Boeing 787. It is built, owned, and operated by Lincoln Clean Energy (LCE).

Grids Integration, Energy Networks Boosted By Distributed Generation Growth

Renewable energy has continued to develop at ever increasing rates, with remarkable growth seen since the start of this decade. The pace of the energy transition is driving innovation and growth in related sectors. For energy networks and grids integrating small gas turbines, micro-turbines, fuel cells, biomass, small hydropower, wind and solar energy; distributed generation installation provides significant solutions in the restructured electricity regime. This is particularly so, where there is a larger uncertainty in demand and supply.

Ministerial Meeting Gathers in Italy To Scale-Up Geothermal Energy Worldwide 

Leaders and ministers from more than 25 governments will meet in Florence, Italy on 11 September, to accelerate the global adoption of geothermal energy. The Global Geothermal Alliance (GGA) meeting is the largest such ministerial gathering dedicated to geothermal energy development. Geothermal energy today accounts for just 0.3 percent of globally installed renewable energy capacity. However – once start-up costs are met – it is one of the lowest-cost and most reliable renewable energy sources available. The global potential for geothermal is estimated to be in the region of 200 GW.

Offshore Wind Prices Drop By 50% In 5 Years. Now Cheaper Than Nuclear And Gas

Offshore wind continues to highlight UK market leadership. During the last decade; government support and innovation combined with increases in turbine efficiency and sizes have resulted in the UK heading the global ‘installed capacity’ charts. Figures just published show that offshore wind is now the lowest cost option for large-scale, low-carbon power. Advances in turbine technology have contributed significantly to recent reductions in costs per megawatt hour. Huge blades, with a single rotation, now can generate enough energy to power a home for 24 hours. Impressively, by the mid-2020s turbine, capacities are set to double again.
