RWE Renewables and National Grid Collaborate to Jointly Bid for New York Bight Offshore Wind Energy Lease Auction

RWE Renewables | May 24, 2021

RWE Renewables, one of the world's leading offshore wind energy firms, and National Grid, one of the world's largest publicly traded utilities, announced today the signing of a partnership agreement to jointly build offshore wind projects in the Northeast U.S. coastal region. Under this deal, RWE and National Grid Ventures, National Grid's non-regulated subsidiary, will collaborate to explore opportunities in the offshore wind market in the United States. This involves a plan to bid together in the forthcoming New York Bight seabed lease auction. Offshore wind will be crucial for the United States, especially in the Northeast, to minimize carbon emissions and achieve climate goals, such as New York state's target of bringing 9,000 megawatts (MW) of offshore wind online by 2035. This collaboration would benefit from the complementary strengths and skills of National Grid and RWE. RWE is one of the world's largest offshore wind companies, involved throughout the entire value chain, from project conception and development to construction and operation, and maintenance. The company's unmatched expertise over the last 20 years has resulted in about 20 active projects. The company is currently building the 857-megawatt Triton Knoll offshore wind farm off the English coast and the 342-megawatt Kaskasi plant off the German island Heligoland. Furthermore, RWE has made an investment decision for its 1,4 gigawatt Sofia project, one of the world's largest offshore wind farms. National Grid will offer local expertise in the Northeast as well as experience developing large-scale infrastructure projects, including industry-leading subsea cable capabilities from its portfolio of interconnectors that enable renewable energy transfer between the UK and Europe.

JERA Americas Acquires El Sauz Wind Project in Texas from Apex Clean Energy

JERA Americas | December 06, 2021

JERA Americas, the Houston-based subsidiary of global energy leader JERA Co. (JERA), has acquired a 100% interest in the El Sauz Wind Power Project from Apex Clean Energy, the original developer. The approximately 300 megawatt (MW) project, located in Willacy County, Texas, is expected to begin construction in early 2022 and begin operating in the last quarter of the year. We are extremely proud that our first investment in renewable energy in the US is right here in Texas where we have our American headquarters. We are looking to accelerate the transformation of our energy supply to more sustainable forms of energy and this project marks the beginning of what we plan to be a substantial and growing commitment to renewables in this state and across the country. We like the Texas market for the way it supports cleaner energy and we plan to be here for the long term. Steven Winn, CEO of JERA Americas The Project will consist of 67 Nordex Group wind turbines each capable of generating 4.5 MW of electricity, which at full output could power approximately 240,000 homes. Wanzek Construction, Inc. will serve as the balance of plant contractor for the project. JERA plans to be a global leader in renewable energy and zero CO2 emission electricity and has announced a 5 gigawatt (GW) goal for renewable energy projects by 2025 and to achieve net zero CO2 emissions by 2050. JERA Americas established a renewable energy business in 2020 and plans to contribute approximately 2 GW toward achievement of the 5 GW global goal. The transaction marks the first renewable energy investment by JERA in the United States. The El Sauz Wind development announcement comes after several other recent actions taken in pursuit of JERA’s goal of net zero CO2 emissions by 2050. This summer, JERA Americas announced hydrogen blending projects at two natural gas fired generation facilities in the northeastern US. In September, JERA Americas also took an ownership interest in Hydrogenious LOHC Technologies, a company focused on providing safe hydrogen storage and transportation solutions to help spur the growth of hydrogen as a zero carbon fuel to reduce carbon emissions at fossil fuel plants. About JERA Americas A subsidiary of Tokyo-based JERA that produces about 30% of all electricity in Japan, JERA Americas is supporting an energy transition in an environmentally and socially responsible manner. JERA, which stands for Japanese Energy for a New Era, has been working to achieve net zero CO2 emissions from its domestic and overseas businesses by 2050 and is contributing to the development of a sustainable society.

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.
