Corporations purchased a record 23.7GW of clean power through long-term agreements, propelled by growth in new markets. The increase came despite a year devastated by the Covid-19 pandemic, a global recession and uncertainty about U.S. energy policy.
The world invested unprecedented amounts in low-carbon assets last year, from renewables to cleaner transport, energy storage to electric heat
In two-thirds of the world, renewable sources of power are more affordable than carbon-based electricity. This shift represents a substantial victory for green energy, as it may offer the push the industry needs to become the new norm. Here's how this monumental shift happened.
Renewable power is right at our fingertips. With the help of new technology, water bodies like oceans, lakes and rivers can provide a substantial amount of clean electricity.
Energy Transition: Total Is Investing More Than €500 Million to Convert Its Grandpuits Refinery Into a Zero-crude Platform for Biofuels and Bioplastics
Of the 400 jobs at the Grandpuits platform and its associated Gargenville (Yvelines) depot today, 250 will be maintained after the conversion. Furthermore, 15 additional jobs will be created on the Grandpuits site in a packaging unit connected to the bioplastics unit.
The most stubborn barrier is the cost of installation. Renewables are designed for simplicity, meaning solar panels and wind turbines are relatively easy and inexpensive to maintain, the initial price of the equipment to power companies and homeowners is not insurmountable.
The 2019 photovoltaic energy sector saw unprecedented growth, so much it accounted for nearly 40% of new capacity across all electric power production markets that year. 2019 installations were up 15% from the previous year.
The infrastructure we build in response to climate change, the #1 environmental issue of our time, should not come at the cost of having to flatten hills, fill in valleys, and raze natural structures occupying parts of a project site.
While the solar panels will provide around 12 per cent of the school's annual electricity needs, the panels themselves act as a bonus. The main driver for the project is education.
Renewables may play a key role in the longterm recovery of the global economy and a proactive response to climate change. By providing more jobs in a variety of industries and transitioning to a more equitable economy, renewables are essential to handling the unemployment crisis.
To understand the effects the crisis could have on the renewable energy market, we conducted a survey of project developers, analyzed data from the LevelTen Marketplace, and talked to our customers. Here are five key takeaways.
The success of the sustainable energy industry is challenging to determine at this time. While it has some of the same obstacles to overcome as other industries, there are also some promising signs.
Energy's deathprint is the number of people killed by one kind of energy or another per kWhr produced. Coal is the worst. According to the World Health Organization, the Centers for Disease Control, and the National Academy of Science.
There are currently 71 waste to energy (WTE) plants in the United States. WTE plants only account for 0.4% of total electricity generation, although there is great potential to increase this percentage in the future.
Over the next 5 to 10 years, renewable energy will assume a more prominent role as a main power source for power grids. Solar power, in particular, as the most noteworthy form of renewable energy, has a particularly bright future.
