Recent headlines have captured the decision of the newly elected Ontario provincial government to cancel more than 700 renewable energy contracts in the province.
Some of the latest battery technologies may become obsolete before reaching the market because of the breakneck pace of advances in the industry.
Chris Gwynne stands in a ravine below a towering dam in the Tasmanian wilderness and ponders whether the giant concrete structure can withstand the politics that may keep it from playing a key role in Australia’s clean energy future.
It was California’s biggest fire yet. In late July and August, wildfires devastated an area north of San Francisco far bigger than New York City, destroying more than 100 homes and injuring 2 fire fighters. It’s just one in a rash of fast-spreading blazes that have killed at least 56 people this year and last in the Golden State.

Ørsted signed up Siemens Gamesa to supply turbines for the Coastal Virginia Offshore Wind project that Dominion has planned since 2011. The wind farm 27 miles off the Virginia coast would the first such project in the U.S. mid-Atlantic.

Xcel Energy recently celebrated the groundbreaking of its 150-MW Foxtail Wind project in Fargo, North Dakota, U.S.

Trump administration officials pushed to highlight the value of coal-fired power plants in a government report on the “bomb cyclone” that plunged the Eastern U.S. into single-digit temperatures last January.

Ørsted announced it is buying 100 percent of Lincoln Clean Energy (LCE) for about $580 million (500 million €) from owner I Squared Capital. Since I Squared acquired the firm in 2015, LCE has built or is completing than 800 MW in onshore wind generation capacity.

“Japan will present hydrogen to the rest of the world as a new energy choice and will lead global efforts for establishing a carbon-free society taking advantage of Japan’s strong points,” read a statement from Japanese Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry as it unveiled the country’s ground-breaking Basic Hydrogen Strategy last December.

New geothermal capacity in Mexico could rise 300 MW over 10 years.

Bright and breezy days are becoming a deeper nightmare for utilities struggling to earn a return on traditional power plants. With wind and solar farms sprouting up in more areas -- and their power getting priority to feed into the grid in many places -- the amount of electricity being generated is outstripping demand during certain hours of the day.

American firms have accounted for 4.2 GW, or 60 percent, of global corporate clean energy procurements so far in 2018, already setting a record over 2017’s previous benchmark pace, according to Bloomberg NEF report. 

 

Empresas Publicas de Medellin in Colombia has announced it plans to raise up to US$1.4 billion from asset sales in a bid to remain solvent in the wake of the crisis at the 2.4-GW Ituango hydro facility.

Utility experts flocked to Johannesburg last month and talked how the skies the limit for the future opportunities and challenges of grid expansion and modernization in Africa.
There’s an energy-storage opportunity hidden in plain sight -- and it has little to do with electric vehicles. As batteries go mainstream, the “deepest potential” for them is likely to be in arbitrage, according to a Bloomberg NEF report Tuesday.
Europe’s heat wave is hastening the rise of the “peaker,” a natural gas-fired power plant that can switch on and off quickly and runs only when there’s high demand.

The wind farm will increase Danish annual electricity production from wind by about 12 percent.

Saudi Arabia today opened final bidding for its first utility-scale windfarm.

Late last year, Renewable Energy World published articles and a video to explain the energy imbalance market to readers. This is the market that was created as a result of the fact that California often has excess solar, wind and hydropower and must “curtail” those energy sources, which means turn them off completely. Instead of curtailing them, through the energy imbalance market, those solar, wind, and hydropower plant owners can sell their power over the border to neighboring states.  

Now the state is mulling an even larger opportunity, in which it would dissolve its current grid operator, the California ISO (Cal-ISO) and form one large regional grid, which would have oversight from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC). The move could lead to lower electricity rates and cleaner energy for all regions, some say. Others worry that giving up state oversight and letting FERC take control could lead to California at some point propping up coal-fired power plants in Wyoming and Utah. After all, FERC has been considering proposals from Secretary Perry on how to keep coal and nuclear power plants alive — the latest move being one related to national security. The articles below outline some of the issues in play. What do you think the state should do? -- JMR  

Annual wind power capacity in the Asia Pacific (excluding China) will reach a peak of 12.1 GW by 2022.
