The Adelaide Advertiser reports (paywall) French company Neoen will announce “Goyder South”, which is to be constructed in the Burra region. The Advertiser states the total project involves 1200MW of wind power, 600MW of solar energy capacity and 900MW of battery storage. The first stage will be one-third the capacity of each, with subsequent stages dependent on Project EnergyConnect being completed – the interconnector between Robertstown in South Australia and Wagga Wagga in New South Wales. Plans are yet to be lodged with the State Commission Assessment Panel for Goyder South as Neoen will be seeking community feedback first. Such a project could provide a much-needed cash injection and jobs boost for the area, which has been in the grip of a particularly nasty drought for quite some time. Back in June, a farmer at World’s End (near Burra) was at the point he was having to feed dumped onions to his stock as the price of conventional feed was too high.

How the solar industry can deal with supply chain interruptions during COVID-19

Article | April 1, 2020

With the onslaught of the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic, we are all experiencing an unprecedented time. As the global economy wrestles with defining which industries and businesses are essential and non-essential, the United States has determined that construction, manufacturing and energy are essential businesses. Many companies and jobs within the solar industry fall into construction, manufacturing or energy, and in some cases all three categories. At Quest Renewables, we have outlined how we can limit interruptions to our supply chain during the current atmosphere. Our hope is that you will find this information helpful.

What the Renewables Industry Wants From the Next Stimulus Bill

Article | April 1, 2020

The U.S. renewables industry was left out of the $2.2 trillion coronavirus stimulus bill passed last week, but the battle is far from over. Congress is already considering further legislation to rescue the economy from the ravages of the COVID-19 pandemic, and renewable energy groups are ready to bring their proposals back to the table. As with the last stimulus bill, the industry's plans center on securing changes to two federal policies: the Investment Tax Credit (ITC) for solar power and the Production Tax Credit (PTC) for wind power. Renewables groups have a powerful claim to make as they push for those changes: Unlike many of the industries seeking hundreds of billions of dollars in collective aid, the desired tweaks to the renewable tax credits would not add significantly to the federal government's costs.

Four Ways Toward A New Energy Economy

Article | April 1, 2020

The American Council on Renewable Energy (ACORE) released a report in January 2020 that examines four notable policy approaches identified as having the potential to accelerate the transition to a renewable energy economy and achieving scientifically based reductions in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. The report, Advancing America’s Climate Leadership: Policy Options That Most Effectively Put Renewable Energy to Work, discusses specific advantages and limitations of each policy option, individually and in combination. Authored by ACORE’s Greg Wetstone, President and CEO; Bill Parsons, COO; Lesley Hunter, VP of Programs; and Tyler Stoff, Policy Manager, this report offers design recommendations for policymakers to optimize implementation.

Toyota Green Energy could focus on offshore wind for hydrogen

Article | April 1, 2020

The world’s largest automotive company, Toyota, has announced a joint venture to enter the renewable power generation industry, setting up Toyota Green Energy in its home country of Japan. While initially this will focus on powering the company’s operations with clean electricity, the long-term could see the venture shift its focus towards the production of green hydrogen for use in Toyota’s fuel-cell vehicles. Last Friday, Toyota Motor Corporation announced an agreement with Chubu Electric Power and Toyota Tsusho Corporation to establish their new partnership in July, with the purpose of obtaining and managing renewable energy resources in Japan to power the operations of the Toyota Group.
