The international Airport Weeze in North Rhine-Westphalia is one of the newest European airports, welcoming 1.8m passengers a year. The airport operators have now opened car park P2 for customers and equipped it with a PV carport system. This offers a dual advantage. First, the renewable energy generated by the system can be used as an additional revenue source, or for self-consumption; whilst reducing its carbon footprint. Second, the system also serves as a protective layer shielding passenger vehicles.

UK’s National Grid Maintains Energy Flow With Innovation, And Renewables

The fast-changing energy landscape and increasing amount of renewable generation on the system that results in frequency volatility have required National Grid to develop new and innovative ways to manage frequency to ensure that energy keeps flowing to where it is needed. A new, enhanced ability to control variations in frequency almost immediately will result in reduced costs of approximately 200 million pounds and streamline services to make them as efficient as possible meaning reduced costs for the end consumer.

Municipal Authority Using Clean Energy To Safeguard Public Sector Services

The largest local authority owned solar farm in the UK, acquired for nearly £14.5 million, will be used to help protect the future of municipal services in Forest Heath. It announced that after months of negotiations it has bought Greenheath Energy Ltd and with it the 12.4MW solar farm at Toggam Farm in Lakenheath.
