The Key to Unlocking 100% Renewables

Article | February 27, 2020

The 100 percent renewable energy future doesn’t start with a country, state or region. It starts with a city. One power plant in a city, in fact. In Glendale, California. Glendale is a city of 200,000 people just north of Los Angeles. And in 2014, Glendale was in a tricky spot. The city’s natural-gas plant was old. The City Council faced a decision that would impact the municipality for decades to come: revamp the 252-megawatt gas plant or find local alternatives?

A wave of scientific breakthroughs is going to make solar energy cheaper than energy generated from fossils

Article | March 9, 2020

Human pollution such as burning fossil fuels has been causing global environmental change for decades. Climate change impacts leave us no time to hesitate before taking urgent actions towards a more sustainable life. Going solar can be one of these actions. Luckily, scientists all over the world work on new materials that are going to make solar panels cheaper and more efficient. Australian and Chinese engineers experiment with a crystalline structure perovskite. Though being rather promising, this material is also very fragile. That is why it is planned to be used in tandem with silicon panels, which are more durable.

How to plan for a safer and smarter energy storage market?

Article | February 18, 2020

According to DNV GL’s 2019 Energy Transition Outlook, the combination of storage for the grid and storage available in vehicle-to-grid systems will exceed 40 TWh in 2050 worldwide. Storage and in particular battery solutions will help propel the transition to a decarbonized, electrified energy future. The energy storage market presents a tremendous opportunity for project developers and lenders worldwide. The drivers are clear and global: the rapid electrification of the transport, buildings and manufacturing sectors, the need for smooth integration of variable renewables, whether for a wind farm or industrial solar systems, and financial flexibility for both providers and customers.

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.
