The EU’s Plan to Scale Up Renewables by 2030 Implications for the Power System

April 12, 2022

The EU’s Plan to Scale
Scaling up renewable energy (REN) is
paramount for climate protection and
energy security, but it is also a major
industrial challenge for the European
Union (EU). The REPowerEU plan requires
multiplying the installed capacity for solar
photovoltaic (PV) power by a factor of 3
and raising wind capacity by a factor of
2.5 in less than 8 years from now.


Solar Alliance

Solar Alliance is committed to providing affordable solar systems so we can all participate in the global transition to clean, renewable energy.

Energy System Efficiency: How to maximise the contribution of consumers to cost-effectively accelerate the clean energy transition

whitePaper | October 21, 2022

smartEn has engaged in an internal exercise to provide answers to these questions. We are convinced that a more efficient energy system is possible, with active consumers at its heart. Consumers must be enabled to contribute to an acceleration towards an efficient, secure and fully decarbonised energy system, instead of being the passive victims of a centralised and fossil-dependent energy system. This is possible if consumers of all types - from households to industrial players.

Path to 100% Renewables for Dominican Republic

whitePaper | February 28, 2020

The Dominican Republic is considered a leader in energy and policy in the Caribbean. At the end of 2018 the Dominican Republic approved a Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) Action Plan to reaffirm the countries pledge to maintain the targets set by the Paris Climate Agreement. This being one of the actions showing the Island nation’s commitment to reducing emissions and increasing the amount of renewable energy in their power system.

Cumulative Effects Analysis for Wind Energy Development: Current Practices, Challenges, and Opportunities

whitePaper | April 12, 2022

The increasing global deployment of wind energy has given rise to concerns about potential adverse effects on certain wildlife species and habitats. The United States and European nations use environmental impact assessments (EIAs) to evaluate the environmental effects of wind energy and inform wind energy planning, siting, and operational processes. A key component of the EIA is the cumulative effects analysis/assessment (CEA). CEAs consider the effects of a proposed development in the context of past, present, and future developments, as well as other (non-wind) activities.
