Scaling up the American wind industry

January 23, 2023

scaling-up-the-american
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

Transitioning Industrial Clusters towards Net Zero: National Policy Enablement for Industrial Decarbonization

whitePaper | October 11, 2022

As nations worldwide continue to develop and industrialize at a pace never before seen, the demand for products like cement, chemicals, coal, oil and gas, and steel – or their substitutes – is rapidly growing. Often these hard-to-abate sectors are geographically co-located in so-called industrial clusters, hubs or zones. To address an urgent need for scaled decarbonization in these industries, strong policy support is needed with a particular focus on the transition of these CO2 -emitting industrial areas across all nations, independent of industry mix or development stage.

Hardestto-Reach Unlocking Clean Energy Investmentsfor Those Living Beyond the Grid

whitePaper | March 23, 2022

The Problem: People Without a Path to Clean Energy Of the approximately 789 million people in the world who currently live without electricity many will gain access through grid extension and off-grid solar by 2030. However, estimates suggest that roughly 215 million people will be left behind because they live in risky or remote, rural areas where investors have been unable or unwilling to go. In the last decade, there has been a steady increase in financing available for clean, renewable energy, but that money is largely directed towards wealthier nations while millions in the Global South, in places like sub-Saharan Africa and Southeast Asia, still lack basic energy access.

Facebook's U.S. Renewable Energy Impact Study

whitePaper | June 1, 2021

In 2011, Facebook was one of the first companies to commit to supporting its facilities with 100% renewable energy. Today, the company’s U.S. data center fleet is supported by 100% renewable energy, and Facebook is on track to maintain this commitment for future data center developments and expansions. Facebook’s ability to achieve this commitment is in large part due to its pioneering approach to renewable energy procurement, which to date has resulted in 55 new solar and wind projects adding 5,763 megawatts (MW) of clean electricity to the U.S. grid.

How to make the charging infrastructure for electric vehicles smart

whitePaper | November 30, 2022

Renewable energies and the increasing emergence of electric vehicles are putting a strain on the electricity grid. The former are not constantly available, and the latter require additional energy while charging. This leads to the need for introducing a new, smart charging infrastructure to avoid instabilities at the grid level. This white paper explains what is involved in making a charging infrastructure truly “smart” and what obstacles can be expected along the way. It also outlines why vehicle owners do not need to fear batteries degradation, and which semiconductor devices and other supporting technologies Infineon provides for such applications.

ELECTRIC VEHICLES SPOTTING THE CHALLENGES& CHARTING THE COURSE

whitePaper | October 23, 2022

Today we witness a significant push in the country to not just drive adoption and also become a world leader in production as we scale up our manufacturing facilities and localise supply chains. This presents a huge opportunity for the industry to support the nation’s drive to become an automobile hub. However, the industry witnesses its own set of unique challenges that need to be addressed on priority. We are in the middle of critical supply chain-induced shortages, especially with the limited availability of key components such as lithium-ion battery cells and semiconductor chips in recent times.
