UK Climate Change Minister Claire Perry marched across a slightly muddy field to a 10-MW solar farm built by British renewable energy developer Anesco. The high-profile visit included a tour of the solar farm (Figure 1), which includes some interesting design elements, but the true pull for Perry was not what was included in the plant, it was what was not included—government subsidies.

Unlocking the benefits of digital solar to accelerate the energy transition

Article | February 14, 2020

Since a successful energy transition must be renewable, efficient and smart, the digital transition and the energy transition should go hand-in-hand. Solar is the most distributed of all energy resources and thus solar solutions are a perfect match for digitalisation and the application of distributed ledger technologies such as blockchain. This is good news for Europe’s energy transition. Digitalisation and increasing electrification of the energy system enables to break the boundaries between key sectors such as industry, transport and buildings. This sectoral integration unlocks new sources of clean flexibility, and supports the increasing penetration of solar and renewables into the system.

OPTIMIZING COGENERATION POWER PLANTS TO MANAGE RENEWABLE ENERGY EFFICIENTLY AND ECONOMICALLY

Article | February 14, 2020

A cogeneration, or Combined Heat and Power (CHP), plant uses a heat engine or power station to produce electric and thermal energy simultaneously from a single fuel source. A primary benefit of using a cogeneration system is that it can capture thermal energy for heating that is otherwise wasted in a conventional power plant. Utility companies today face the challenge of transitioning to the utilization of renewable energy for both electricity production and district heating systems.

Solar Power, Great For The Environment? Or Is It The Last Thing We Need?

Article | February 14, 2020

Solar power is an undeniably a green, renewable form of electricity generation - but many organisations with questionable motives (even here in New Zealand) are trying to persuade the public (and Government – hi lobbyists!) that solar power isn’t that environmentally friendly, and that it's even harmful. At the expense of bullish corporate profits, solar power is often thrown under the bus. This article lists the facts - putting an end to the negative spin on solar so often found in the media. When solar panels produce power, they do not; create any air pollution, use zero water, create carbon emissions, noise pollution, and they won’t disturb surrounding ecosystems. Solar power is a renewable energy source, the sun’s rays are infinite, fill your boots.
