Renewable Energy Landscapes White Paper

January 2, 2023

renewable-energy-landscapes
Clean energy goals and policies have dramatically shifted commerce, resource portfolios, and technology innovation in the last 20 years. As we plan ahead, we see an energy transition that creates disruptive levels of uncertainty and even greater change to our economic and energy systems. Part of planning for the future means grappling with the full significance of the transition: its tradeoffs and its effects on people and on culture.

Breach Protection For Energy Companies

whitePaper | October 4, 2022

Business Challenge Widely classified as critical infrastructure, energy companies traditionally relied on the inaccessibility of their core technology environment to protect against threats. Today, energy companies are focusing on grid modernization, increasing connectivity between information technology (IT) and operational technology (OT) to provide myriad operational benefits and efficiencies. The environment has expanded to remote endpoints and networked devices used across the entire supply chain to improve collaboration, access and control. This interconnectedness, however, opens energy companies to considerable risk

Solving the Energy Trilemma

whitePaper | August 11, 2022

The global climate change summit, COP26, in November last year emphasised the urgent need to keep 1.5 degrees Celsius alive, limit global warming and push for more low-carbon power, as well as renewables. Then prices for energy began to skyrocket in Europe and Asian markets in January due to post-COVID energy bottlenecks. Finally, the recent war in Ukraine has emboldened world leaders’ to prioritise energy security and question where their imported fuels come from.

Offshore Wind Market Report: 2022 Edition

whitePaper | January 17, 2023

In the United States, commercial-scale offshore wind energy deployment is at an early stage with only 42 megawatts (MW) generating power; however, the domestic industry is poised for an exponential increase in new installations after the first large commercial projects advanced to the construction phase in 2021–2022. Over the past 20 years, offshore wind energy got a head start outside the United States with the help of coordinated European offshore wind energy incentives.

Scaling up the American wind industry

whitePaper | January 23, 2023

Since its inception in the 1980s, the wind industry has established itself as a critical source of clean, renewable energy – a role it must maintain into the future. Going forward, the continued growth of the global wind industry will prove ever more important, with DNV estimating that 5.6 terawatts of onshore wind energy and nearly three terawatts of offshore wind must be generated to achieve a “pathway to net zero” scenario by 2050

A Sustainable Vision For A Productive Future

whitePaper | January 20, 2020

Few industries impact global economic livelihood, societal functioning, and quality of life as significantly as the energy industry. Few industries face as many challenges. A number of daunting factors are again leading many inside and outside the energy industry to embrace renewable energy as a solution—or, perhaps, more accurately—a critical piece of the solution. Renewable energy sources are making inroads in our national energy mix, and that progress is likely to continue. It’s not a matter of whether the renewable energy market will grow, it’s how fast and by how much.

Why we need the European wind industry – and how to safeguard it

whitePaper | September 26, 2022

We’re in the midst of an unprecedented energy crisis, with soaring energy prices and faltering supply chains around the world. In Europe, we have failed to realize and mitigate our strong energy dependencies – and now, people and industries are suffering the consequences. We urgently need more wind capacity to protect our economies and our climate alike.
