ADVANCING INVESTMENT IN OFFSHORE WIND

| May 30, 2018

The Business Network for Offshore Wind works to support the development and growth of the U.S. offshore wind supply chain. The Network reacts to existing offshore wind projects’ challenges and preempts potential bottlenecks or risks that could threaten or delay the development of the offshore wind industry supply chain. The U.S. now has a growing pipeline of deployable offshore wind projects totaling 5-8GW, and the U.S. has scale in its demand to replace old power generation with new clean forms of electricity. The U.S. is poised to accelerate its nascent offshore wind sector to become a major national industry. The U.S. has many advantages: the technology is proven and already exists; the market size is inherent to produce economies of scale; and offshore wind policies are emerging, both federal and some state. The building blocks are in place but finance is the important ‘mortar’ needed to build this industry. For this reason, in April 2018, the Network in partnership with Société Générale, assembled offshore wind experts to start taking a deeper look at the needs of the finance industry in order to learn if the case for investment into the U.S. offshore wind sector could be improved, and if so, how

The Next Renewable Energy Source Could Be Rain

Article | February 17, 2020

The quest for the next source of renewable energy is well underway, with no natural phenomenon overlooked. We have already harnessed the power of flowing water, wind, and sunlight, and the search for the next clean source of energy is far from over. The latest potential breakthrough in renewable energy comes in the form of rain. The rain has not been getting a lot of attention in renewable energy circles perhaps because it would be challenging to harness its electricity-producing potential. Yet attempts are being made, and in the latest breakthrough, U.S. and Hong Kong researchers have managed to produce 140 volts of power from one single raindrop. That’s enough to light 100 LED lights for a short while.

Here are the Best Ways to Optimize Your Solar Power

Article | April 8, 2020

Let’s take a look at the common case. It’s not a secret that we charge our devices for work or study at the office or at uni. When we are asked to do everything from home, we must use our own electricity to power our essential devices for work. Without even realizing, we also need to turn on the heater or AC to keep ourselves in comfortable temperature. Plus, there will be a time when we are tempted to turn on the TV, Xbox or PlayStation, for fun. In short, the more power we consume, the more expensive the bill we will pay! If we rely on solar energy, our system will get us covered. During the day, our solar PV will produce the most electricity we use at home. So, even if we are spending all day working or studying, we won’t need to pay more for our electricity. Yet, to make sure we can save money as much as possible, we must do it right. To make it easier, our team at Solar Arena has collected the best tips you can follow:

A Clean Energy Source of the Future?

Article | March 27, 2020

You know things are getting exciting when German bureaucrats are turning emotional, as happened one month ago in Berlin: “Hydrogen is the shit! And we need it desperately.” Thomas Herdan, the bureaucrat in question, is a prominent policymaker in the German Economic Ministry and, until that moment, was known for analytical thoughtfulness rather than for enthusiastic outcries. His excitement, however, is shared by governments and businesses around the world. The International Energy Agency IEA estimates that every year, the world’s governments pour $700 million into R&D for hydrogen applications alone. A few months ago, the U.S. announced $40 million in funding for 29 hydrogen projects across the country. As IEA puts it, hydrogen currently has “unprecedented political and business momentum”.

2020 Trends That Will Make Waves In The Energy Industry

Article | February 10, 2020

In the renewable world, energy is generated by weather and the amount of energy that can be produced depends on the current conditions. Energy storage can ensure a power supply is maintained when weather conditions are not optimal for generating energy. While energy storage products have already been introduced to all levels of the market there are several technology hurdles to overcome before energy storage will reach maximum potential. We believe there will be great advancements in 2020 on:
