AREG and ESA Sign Space Tech MoI for Renewable Energy

Aberdeen Renewable Energy Group | January 21, 2021

Aberdeen Renewable Energy Group (AREG) and the European Space Agency (ESA) have marked a notice of purpose (MoI) to examine, create and actualize space-empowered technology and administrations to help the renewable energy area.

Under the MoI, the associations will cooperate to cultivate the improvement of space-using applications to help technical and business advancement in the renewables area.

They will likewise assess natural maintainability of energy creation and security of activities.

AREG seat Jean Morrison stated: "This concurrence with ESA will take a gander at the inventive technologies being produced for space exercises and how we can utilize these learning and advancements to quicken the improvement of renewable activities.

"We expect that collaborating with organisations such as ESA will bring fresh ideas and initiatives for our members as we continue to champion the energy supply chain to enable the transition to low carbon to achieve net zero emissions."

ESA Space Solutions head of partner-led and thematic initiatives section Rita Rinaldo said: "ESA is strongly positioned to support the implementation of innovative services relying on space assets to support the renewable sector in Europe and beyond. 

"We are very pleased of this cooperation with AREG that will allow us to further develop initiatives in support to green transition and create new opportunities for sustainable services."

ESA Space Solutions aims at arriving at business abuse of space resources, information and capacities tending to brooding, demonstrating technical practicality and business advancement.

This incorporates the advancement of operational administrations for a wide scope of clients through the blend of various frameworks, and backing in making practical organizations just as to existing organizations.

AREG was established in 2003 to help firms looking for development inside the renewables area.

It gives occasions to guide admittance to a portion of the business' biggest engineers through its occasions.


The global dialogue around climate change spans conversations on TV, at work and sometimes, even in our own living rooms. It is not uncommon to see many businesses and consumers adopting more eco-friendly practices and trying to decrease their carbon footprint where they can. One industry, in particular, is dedicated solely to these causes: solar power.

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.”

Hydrogen and artificial intelligence to play ‘critical role’ in scaling up renewables – EY

Pv-tech | November 25, 2020

Hydrogen and man-made reasoning are set to play a "basic function" in supporting network soundness and scaling up efficient power energy, new exploration from EY says. The capacity to change over abundance green power into hydrogen is extended to be a "distinct advantage", while AI calculations – with their utilization inside the 'web of things', sensors and huge information – can help settle focal networks and increment dispatch effectiveness, the consultancy said in its half-yearly EY Renewable Energy Country Attractiveness Index. Coronavirus lockdown gauges from the get-go in 2020 brought about the portion of renewables utilized in the energy blend taking off internationally in light of discouraged power interest, low working expenses and need admittance to the lattice through guideline, as indicated by EY. Then, a monetary recuperation zeroed in on green development has prompted a reestablished pushed towards net zero targets. Having jumped China before in the year, US keeps up its place at the highest point of the file, with EY noticing support from COVID-19 boost bundles assigned to environmentally friendly power ventures and a responsibility by President-elect Joe Biden to rejoin the Paris Climate Agreement. China remains in runner up, thanks to some extent to its light sun oriented area. As per EY, boards adequate for 59GW of limit were produced in the nation in the initial five months of 2020, speaking to a 16% expansion year-on-year, close by conjectures of 35-45GW of new sun powered ability to be introduced for the current year. With developers and investors driving growth in Australia’s renewables sector, the country reached its highest ever position in the index, rising to third. EY said that despite policy uncertainty – and issues with grid stability and price volatility – the future looks bright for Australia’s renewable energy industry, predicting that it “could be on its way to becoming a green energy exporting superpower”. The index also sees India move from seventh position to fourth. EY says the country’s installed PV capacity has reached more than 35GW, while its economic attractiveness has led to record-low tariff bids.
