Blockchain technology is driving innovation and scale-up in the energy, climate, and environmental sectors. SolarCoin, a blockchain-based digital asset and currency, is designed to accelerate the transition to a clean energy economy. As a blockchain based technology, SolarCoin is global and decentralized, with similarities to cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin. SolarCoin stands out, because unlike these, SolarCoin ‘binds’ the disbursement of digital coins to useful economic and environmental activity - verifiably produced solar energy.

EDF Renewables and wpd announce the Launch of Construction Activity on the Calvados Offshore Wind Farm

EDF Renewables | February 22, 2021

EDF Renewables, an auxiliary of the EDF Group, EIH S.à r.l, an auxiliary of Enbridge Inc. a North American energy infrastructure organization, and wpd, an European renewable energies organization, are reporting the launch of construction movement on the Calvados offshore wind ranch (Courseulles-sur-Mer). This declaration follows the finish of financing arrangements between the consortium and its monetary accomplices. The 448-MW Calvados offshore wind project is contained 64 wind turbines found more than 10km from the Bessin coastline and possesses a complete surface zone of roughly 45km². Upon its dispatching, planned for 2024, it will create what could be compared to the yearly power utilization of 630,000 individuals, or more than 90% of the Calvados French office's populace. The all out task cost is assessed at around €2 billion. The dominant part will be financed through non-plan of action project account obligation. The Calvados offshore wind ranch holds a 20-year power buy understanding (PPA) allowed by the French government in June 2018. The three and a half-year construction undertaking will make more than 1,000 direct positions in Normandy and will add to the advancement of the French's offshore wind industry. The undertaking's wind turbines will be produced in Le Havre at Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy's Quai Joannes Couvert plant, which is as of now under construction. After charging planned for the principal half of 2022, a sum of 750 immediate and backhanded positions will have been made. The plant will likewise produce the 71 wind turbines for the Fécamp offshore wind ranch granted to a similar consortium, which construction started in June 2020. The wind turbines will be gathered at the Port of Le Havre, at that point delivered to the establishment site. Offshore construction action is expected to initiate in 2022. About EDF Renewables EDF Renewables is a leading international player in renewable energies, with gross installed capacity of 13.8 GW worldwide. Its development is mainly focused on wind and solar photovoltaic power. EDF Renewables operates mostly in Europe and North America but is continuing to grow by moving into promising emerging regions such as Brazil, China, India, South Africa and the Middle East. The company has strong positions in offshore wind power, but also in other areas of the renewable energies industry such as energy storage. EDF Renewables develops, builds, operates and maintains renewable energies projects, both for itself and for third parties. EDF Renewables is the EDF Group subsidiary specialising in developing solar and wind power.

Sensatek Takes Innovative Technology to Future of Renewable Energy

Sensatek Propulsion Technology, Inc. | November 22, 2021

As scientists and innovators work to find the replacement of fossil fuels, one renewable energy source is at the forefront – wind. Sensatek Propulsion Technology is bringing efficiency to the race for renewable energy with its passive RF temperature sensors. Sensatek’s in situ sensing system measures, monitors, and reports data back, which will provide wind turbine farms the information needed to be successful and keep their equipment running longer. Over the last few years, there has been a growth in interest for renewable energy around the world, with an emphasis on wind energy. Wind turbines and land-based farms are steadily increasing, and research is at an all-time high for off-shore wind farms. As the world ramps up its interest in this renewable energy source, Sensatek brings its RF sensors to the playing field. The technology company, funded in part by the National Science Foundation, takes the same technology it has had major success with in power generation, aerospace, oil and gas and aviation industries to wind turbine testing. Sensatek’s manufactured RF sensors will be able to online monitor and measure downtime of wind turbines that results in loss of revenue, as well as monitor shaft, gearbox, and generator failures. Expanding into the wind turbine industry was a no-brainer for us. At Sensatek, our mission is to provide quicker, more accurate data on engines. Our team has learned a lot and received early success increasing efficiency for gas turbines, and we’re confident we can apply this experience to wind turbines as well. We’re working to make our communities safer, greener places.” Reamonn Soto, founder and CEO of Sensatek Sensatek’s technology comes with many benefits for the wind turbine industry. With the knowledge and measured data on how and precisely when the wind turbines are operating, companies will be able to the lower the cost of energy production for their turbines. “We look forward to continuing to expand how and where our technology is used,” said Soto. “We knew wind turbine testing was the next step in the right direction.” With a meeting already on the books this fall with a major power plant, Sensatek will continue to research and develop the future of wind turbine measuring technology. About Sensatek Propulsion Technology, Inc. Sensatek Propulsion Technology, Inc. is a venture capital backed company headquartered on Florida's Space Coast in Daytona Beach, Florida. Sensatek offers advanced sensing technology to help optimize systems used in harsh environments. Their manufactured rotating sensing system, Turbotrack, measures and tracks changes in temperature, strain, and torque allowing system owners to capture more value on revenue generating assets.
