Adwen Offshore

Adwen is a leading player in the offshore wind industry, with more than 600 MW installed at sea and close to 2 GW in the pipeline. The firm was created in 2015 with the ambition of developing innovative and reliable solutions aimed at lowering the Levelized Cost of Energy (LCoE) of offshore wind. The firm’s professionals count with more than 20 years of wind experience designing, manufacturing, installing and operating wind turbines both onshore and offshore. In 2009 it installed Germany’s first offshore wind farm, alpha ventus, and in the summer of 2016 it started the installation of one of the most powerful wind turbines ever built, the AD 8-180.

To maintain the goals of the Paris Agreement and save the Earth from ecological breakdown, one of the most important things experts agree we need to do is transition to a renewable energy economy. While most of us may associate renewable energy with wind energy and solar energy, there are several other sources of clean energy that are growing in popularity. One such source is geothermal energy.

The Key to Unlocking 100% Renewables

Article | April 16, 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?

What does Covid-19 mean for Renewable Energy?

Article | April 16, 2020

Covid-19. It’s everywhere, and it’s probably the reason that your food cupboards are unusually more stocked than usual, or the fact that you’re likely reading this blog from the confines of your own home, as opposed to at your office or during your daily commute. But, despite the impact to business, economies, daily life and public health, there’s one bittersweet development which we can all take away from the outbreak – and that’s the considerable reduction of global CO2 emissions, and a resurgence of hope that it is fully possible for us to slow the onset of climate change and preserve our planet for future generations.

OPTIMIZING COGENERATION POWER PLANTS TO MANAGE RENEWABLE ENERGY EFFICIENTLY AND ECONOMICALLY

Article | April 16, 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.
