PROGRESS TOWARD 100% CLEAN ENERGY

November 13, 2019

DESPITE FEDERAL POLICY DESIGNED TO PROMOTE FOSSIL FUELS, A RENEWABLE ENERGY TRANSITION IS UNDERWAY, LED BY COMMUNITIES AND STATES THROUGHOUT THE U.S. A growing number of cities are choosing to transition to 100% clean energy – and dozens have already hit that target – while the list of states committed to a 100% renewable energy future also continues to grow. This local and state demand has contributed to a near doubling of renewable energy generation since 2008.

Smart Consumers in the Internet of Energy: Flexibility Markets & Services from Distributed Energy Resources

whitePaper | November 28, 2019

In light of new EU market rules adopted as part of the Clean Energy Package, responsive and energy-efficient consumers are likely to play a crucial role in the challenging transition to a low carbon energy system. This is especially true for smart consumers who have access to distributed energy resources (DER) assets, such as demand response, solar photovoltaics, storage, electric vehicles and heating appliances. With the ‘internet of energy’, interconnected smart consumers can trade on both sides of the market, either directly or through an intermediary such as an energy service provider, an aggregator or an energy community.

Energy Company Obligations: Examples of delivering energy efficiency in Buildings and future trends

whitePaper | November 15, 2019

Today more than ever, there is an urgent need to scale up progress with energy efficiency. Energy efficiency is one of the pillars of a climate mitigation strategy1. It is also a critical element to meeting the global Sustainable Development Goals and to ensuring a cost-effective transition to a reliable, low-emitting energy system. At the same time, both states have increased their ambition to transition to low-emissions sources of energy, including increased ambition on renewable energy generation and energy efficiency. As a result, the programmes in New York and California have evolved to value the wider system benefits of energy efficiency, as described below.

Organic Photovoltaics – Truly Green Energy: “Ultra-Low Carbon Footprint”

whitePaper | March 30, 2020

The global warming effect is unequivocal, and solar energy will play a major role in the most important battle of the 21st century: enabling increased energy consumption while minimizing the impact on our environment. In order to achieve the climate protection targets as soon as possible, the environmental impacts must be quantified and should be effectively integrated into the competitive process. TÜV Rheinland (Germany) has certified the environmental impact of the solar film HeliaSol® to be below 16 kg CO2e/m² through a Life Cycle Assessment (LCA). The result is an ultra-low carbon footprint ranging from 15 up to 3 g CO2e/kWh depending on the solar irradiation of a location.
