The proposed future Renewable Energy Support Scheme has the potential to deliver low carbon energy at competitive prices to the consumer. Renewable energy projects (primarily wind) have, over the past decade, been responsible for delivering low carbon energy to Ireland. The benefit has been twofold; reduction in our carbon emissions from the production of electricity and an increase in competition in the energy market. It is resolutely evident that energy prices have been driven down over time due to a high output of energy from wind. Solar Energy has the ability to complement this supply of renewable energy and help drive wholesale prices down even further during daytime peak demand.

Installation of a Solar System in 2021

Article | May 27, 2021

We’ve talked a bit about the functioning of solar panels, the mechanisms behind them, and the best panels suited for the average Indian household. Check them out for the starters. For this article, we’re detailing a complete guide to the components and installation of a solar system. Solar panels are all but a part of the complete setup of a functioning solar system. It is the basic building block of the system, but there’s more to it than just a silicon wafer panel. The other necessary components include Solar Inverters, Batteries (in a select type of system) and Panel Structure/Stands, and other accessories.

A vision for renewable energy

Article | May 27, 2021

Right now, renewable energy makes up a very small part of the entire energy sector of Bangladesh. But as we move into the future, and concerns about the environment become too great to ignore, exploring cleaner and greener sources of energy becomes the need of the hour. Our economy is booming, and our population is growing, so it goes without saying that our energy requirements are immense. There is plenty of scientific evidence that burning fossil fuels indiscriminately is not sustainable in the long term, so we do need to up our game in looking at alternatives.

Toyota Green Energy could focus on offshore wind for hydrogen

Article | May 27, 2021

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.

Renewable Energy Could Power the World by 2050

Article | May 27, 2021

Virtually all the world’s demand for electricity to run transport and to heat and cool homes and offices, as well as to provide the power demanded by industry, could be met by renewable energy by mid-century. This is the consensus of 47 peer-reviewed research papers from 13 independent groups with a total of 91 authors that have been brought together by Stanford University in California. Some of the papers take a broad sweep across the world, adding together the potential for each technology to see if individual countries or whole regions could survive on renewables.
