A recent international survey found 82% of respondents believe the world should run entirely on green energy and an average of 85% want their countries to phase out coal. The research was carried out through 26,401 interviews conducted in 13 countries (Australia not among them) by Edelman Intelligence for Ørsted (previously known as DONG Energy – see below). The stand against coal and for renewables was strongest in China, with 93% of Chinese respondents wanting to see a green energy powered world and 96% an end to coal use. Someone may want to tell U.S. President Donald Trump that 77% of Americans appear to want an end to the use of coal as well.Category

A Shade Greener

A Shade Greener Ltd is a Renewable Electricity Generator based in South Yorkshire. We want to promote solar energy that is accessible to everyone. Up until now only the wealthy could afford solar panels, however, due to new legislation that will take effect from April 2010, which will provide us with guaranteed income for the electricity our panels will generate, we are able to fit free solar panels onto any roof that is suitable. Now nearly everyone can have access to free electricity all year round.

Key Benefits of Implementing AI in the Energy Industry

Article | March 3, 2020

Artificial intelligence is now influencing in every industrial sector. How wonderful it can be to extend the benefits of this technology across industrial sectors that are facing crisis and imbalance of demand and supply all over the world! Energy is one such crucial sector that impacts all the other industries as they use power for their operations. This explains why, according to a recent BIS research report, the global AI market in the energy sector is expected to reach USD 7.79 billion by 2024 (Source). Moreover, research is being done in this sector to find out how the non-renewable sources of energy can be preserved, without creating a shortage in supply for human consumption. The use of renewable sources of energy seems to be the only savior. But, there are several challenges in utilizing renewable sources of energy too!

The Impact on Clean Energy

Article | March 21, 2020

Senate’s coronavirus stimulus package fails to address challenges for renewables, and WoodMac lowers its 2020 global wind forecast. Follow the latest developments here. For all their momentum, the clean-energy sectors — solar, wind, energy storage, and companies transforming the power grid — will not escape the COVID-19 downdraft. These industries face daunting questions about every aspect of their business, from supply chains to potential workforce shortages, to broader questions about the economy, demand for energy and the availability of finance.

Major Sustainability Impact via Renewable Power

Article | April 6, 2020

Globally, there is increased interest and investment in sustainable forms of energy via commercialized renewable power technologies such as solar (thermal and photovoltaics), wind, biomass, geothermal, and other viable sources that are at the center stage. As part of the definitive pathways towards de-carbonization, investors, lenders, market players, and policymakers are increasingly becoming aware of the need for flexibility in the energy value and supply chain. This key area is a critical market segment wherein renewable power technologies are expected to play an important role in both front of-the-meter (FTM) and behind-the-meter (BTM) applications. Accordingly, renewable power is an attractive option to power generators, process plants, commercial and industrial (C&I), institutional, and residential facilities in reducing overall carbon footprint.

Electric vehicles could turn solar households into autonomous energy units

Article | February 17, 2020

Many discussions abound on how Australia can reach renewable energy targets of 50 per cent and much more. Many experts believe achieving this goal will depend on the availability of a low cost, bulk energy storage infrastructure. Pumped hydro has received much attention in this regard. While technically feasible, bulk storage still requires transmission and distribution infrastructure that is not only costly but will take considerable time to implement. A far simpler and cost effective route is the bottom-up approach of turning each house into an autonomous energy unit. The use of solar panels in homes and small industry has proven to be remarkably successful.
