Global Bioenergy Partnership

Global energy supply will face significant challenges over the next century. These include ensuring security of energy supply, greenhouse gas concentration stabilisation in the atmosphere to levels that will limit damage from climate change, reducing other negative impacts of energy supply on the environment, and providing access to energy to the world’s poor.

Renewable Microgrids

whitePaper | December 8, 2021

Power outages are on the rise and grid resiliency is a growing concern. The number and intensity of severe weather events are increasing. Physical and cyber attacks are a growing threat. And aging grid infrastructure complicates system management. These metrics signal a need for grid infrastructure updates - and an exciting opportunity to rethink the grid and re-examine outdated concepts in power delivery that no longer serve the energy users of today.

Onsite Major Component Replacement Technologies for Floating Offshore Wind: the Status of the Industry

whitePaper | February 12, 2023

Amidst the rapid developments the floating offshore wind industry is experiencing, this white paper intends to build a preliminary classification of floating wind heavy maintenance concept types under development. Through a high-level comparative assessment of assigned crane families and an overarching discussion on strategy considerations, this white paper hopes to inform the decision processes of key stakeholders in the field. The findings from this work feed into the wider discussions of WFO’s Floating Offshore Wind Committee (FOWC), where the insurability and bankability perspective reflects on the challenges of floating wind and the new technologies that aim to solve them. These cross-discipline conversations remind us of the need to balance cost reductions and safety measures to preserve the risk perception of floating wind technologies, especially for the first commercial-scale projects.
