APS in Arizona Issues RfP for 400 MW of Solar and Wind Energy Resources

Saur Energy | September 16, 2019

The Arizona Public Service Co. (APS), the largest and longest-serving electric company in the state has announced that it has issued two separate Request for Proposals (RfP) for solar and wind energy resources. These RFPs were first announced in late July with the aim to help the company expand renewable energy portfolio to approximately 2,500 megawatts by 2021 – enough to power more than half a million Arizona homes. The first RFP is seeking competitive proposals for up to 150 MW of APS-owned solar resources to be in service by December 31, 2021. Projects must employ commercially proven technology and must be designed with the flexibility to add energy storage as a future option. The second RFP will pursue up to 250 MW of wind resources to be in service as soon as possible, but no later than 2022. The company will consider both APS-owned resources, as well as those owned by third parties that would sell the output to APS under a power purchase agreement.

Green Power Developers and Rosemawr Sustainable Infrastructure Management Develop, Construct, and Finance Portfolio of Solar Projects in New Jersey

Green Power Developers | November 17, 2021

Green Power Developers, a New Jersey-based solar energy developer, and Rosemawr Sustainable Infrastructure Management, the sustainable infrastructure investment arm of Rosemawr Management, have begun developing, constructing, and financing a portfolio of commercial & industrial scale solar projects across New Jersey. To date, Green Power and Rosemawr have worked together on six projects that began construction in the past three months, with the expectation of beginning construction on at least an additional three projects before the end of the year. The projects have all been financed using structures that allow the host property owner to retain ownership of each project without requiring any upfront capital. Further, each project provides the host with utility bill savings from clean energy. "New Jersey is our home base and we are excited to continue to deploy solar energy throughout the state. We especially pride ourselves on meeting the individual needs of each customer, and partnering with Rosemawr has helped us achieve that goal for these projects. We look forward to continuing to build the portfolio in the coming months and years." Heshy Katz at Green Power Developers "Green Power Developers has built a unique and robust solar development and installation business model that is predicated on delivering efficient solutions for the end user. We are excited about supporting these projects with flexible financing as we continue to grow our sustainable infrastructure portfolio," said Josh Herlands at Rosemawr. About Green Power Developers Green Power Developers was founded in 2010 to help businesses and property owners benefit from the adoption of solar energy.

TechnipFMC and Bombora Collaborate for a Wind-Wave Hybrid Floater

TechnipFMC | April 06, 2021

TechnipFMC and Bombora have formed a strategic alliance to build a floating wave and wind power project. TechnipFMC's technologies and experience delivering integrated engineering, procurement, construction, and installation projects offshore will be combined with Bombora's patented multi-megawatt mWave wave energy technology. The collaboration will initially concentrate on TechnipFMC and Bombora's InSpire (integrated semi-submersible platform with advanced renewable energy) project, which commenced engineering work in November 2020. The hybrid system demonstrator will provide 6MW of combined floating wind and wave energy, followed by commercial platforms in series one and series two, which are expected to provide 12MW and 18MW, respectively. “Our key competencies and integration capabilities make us a perfect project architect and collaborator in designing clean energy technologies alongside Bombora's expertise and unique, proprietary mWave technology,” said TechnipFMC president subsea Jonathan Landes. “We are pleased to be working on a project that advances our environmental commitment while still contributing to a more prosperous future.” “Bombora is partnering with TechnipFMC to accelerate development of our floating integrated mWave platform solutions for commercial wind farms,” said Bombora managing director Sam Leighton. “With TechnipFMC's impressive track record of executing large-scale energy ventures and Bombora's revolutionary mWave technology, we are sure that InSpire will play a key role in the offshore energy sector.”
