Pingdu Begins Operation. EfW: Annual 70,000 MW/h From 600 Tonnes Of Daily Waste

China Everbright International Limited has announced that the Group’s Pingdu Waste-to-energy Project Phase I in Shandong Province has completed construction and commenced operation. Pingdu Project Phase I commenced construction in December 2015 and passed the “72 +24” hours trial run on 4 January 2017. The project previously obtained a subsidy of RMB32 million under the 2016 Central Budgetary Investment Plan. It was constructed on a BOT (Build-Operate-Transfer) model with a total investment of approximately RMB360 million. The project has a designed daily household waste processing capacity of 600 tonnes and is expected to generate approximately 70,000,000 kWh of green electricity annually. Gas emissions fully comply with the Euro 2010 Standard.

Furthermore, following Suzhou Waste-to-energy Project in Jiangsu Province, Everbright International’s Nanjing Waste-to-energy Project in Jiangsu Province and Ningbo Waste-to-energy Project in Zhejiang Province, have both received the AAA grade of the harmless level of household waste processing facility. This was awarded by the provincial departments of housing and urban-rural development in the two provinces and is the highest honour within the industry. Everbright International and the projects have received recognition from the provincial departments after the local officials conducted on-site inspections and assessed the construction, operation and management of the projects.

Mr Chen Xiaoping, CEO of Everbright International, said, “The commencement of the Pingdu Project Phase I’s operation marks a good start to 2017 for Everbright International. Adhering to the Group’s approach of striving for excellence and being pragmatic, the project team gradually carried forward the construction of the project over the past year to provide an environmental-friendly and highly effective waste processing solution for the local communities. Everbright International follows the principles of pursuing excellence, harmony and win-win outcomes. Besides aiming for high quality, the Group’s projects also look to foster harmony within society and create mutual benefits. It is very encouraging to see our projects attaining the industry’s highest AAA grade recognition again. With the trust and expectations by the local governments and residents, Everbright International will ensure its projects maintain safe and efficient daily operations in compliance with discharge standards, so as to effectively improve the quality of the local environment.”

Tata Power Solar Commissions India’s First Rooftop Solar Carport In Delhi

Tata Power Solar set another landmark by commissioning an unprecedented rooftop solar project in India – a solar carport on the rooftop of the sprawling 70,000 sq.m Unity One mall, in Rohini, Delhi. The unique rooftop carport is estimated to set off 438 tonnes of carbon emissions annually. The company won the bid in an open tender process fielded by Delhi Metro Rail Corporation for multi-level car parking. The project enables the mall to earn on the unused and excess solar electricity produced. It also cuts down the need to install a second meter or an expensive battery storage system as it is directly connected to the local power grid.

Global Trade In Biofuels Featured At International Renewable Mobility Conference

A significant proportion of global energy use, is in transportation. Action is crucially needed to bring about an energy turnaround in this sector and it’s a topic that has moved higher up the political agenda again since Dieselgate, and with growing calls for a rapid introduction of electromobility. In Germany, the Working Group on Energy Balances (AG Energiebilanzen) has calculated the final energy consumption of 728 TWh by the transport sector in 2016. Data from the German Environment Agency (UBA) reveals that over 90 percent of fuel deployed is derived from mineral oil. World-leading experts meeting in a parallel forum at the 15th International Conference on Renewable Mobility will analyse biofuel trading worldwide, examining various perspectives on requirements, the current state of play and forecasts.

EU Parliament Aims Higher For Renewables In Its 2030 Climate And Energy Goals

The European Parliament’s Industry & Energy (ITRE) and Environment (ENVI) committees have voted their position on the Energy Union Governance Regulation, just a week after the ITRE committee called for raising the EU’s 2030 renewable energy target to 35% instead of 27%. The Governance Regulation sets out how EU Member States will deliver the EU’s 2030 Climate and Energy goals including the binding EU renewables target and how they will give visibility to renewable energy investors on post-2020 deployment volumes. The IEA now says that wind will be Europe’s leading electricity source soon after 2030.
