CORONAVIRUS CRISIS FAST-FORWARDS GREEN ENERGY 10 YEARS INTO THE FUTURE

Article | April 6, 2020

As businesses shut down and many work from home around the world, electricity demand has reduced in COVID-19 hotspots. This could have a knock-on effect for the renewable sector. China, where the outbreak first took hold, is the world’s biggest electricity consumer. Output from factories has been substantially diminished with many unable to return to their jobs in manufacturing. Due to the curtailing of industrial electricity use, cuts in energy consumption for 2020 could be equivalent to the power used by the whole of Chile, according to IHS Markit. In Europe, peak power consumption has also gone down. Italy, Spain, and the UK have all seen an average 10 per cent drop in energy usage with bars, restaurants, offices and factories, which remain closed as social distancing measures continue.

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.
