The future is energy-efficient,the future is data-driven

The future is energy-efficient
By 2050, global energy usage is projected to increase by almost 50%
compared to 2020. This includes an increase in energy consumption in the
industrial sector.1
At the time of writing, in the first quarter of 2022, the
cost of energy – oil, gas and electricity – is particularly high, which has led
to significant extra energy costs for companies, and prices are expected to
increase.

NIGERIA LEADING AFRICA TO NET ZERO

whitePaper | October 28, 2022

BY 2030 Nigeria reaches its 30-30-30 target, which means 30 GW of grid-connected capacity by 2030 of which 30% comes from renewables. The amount of unserved energy drops significantly in the later part of the decade, which means that a much larger portion of the population now has access to electricity. A lot of flexibility has been added to the power system thanks to ICE technology. The system is now ready to accommodate the massive renewable energy deployment planned in the 2031-2040 decade. Our model reveals that reaching the 30-30-30 target in the most cost-effective way will require $18.7 Billion of investment.

Electricity Resource Compensation Under a Net Zero Future

whitePaper | September 15, 2022

Over the past decade, state governments, local municipalities, and large corporations have increased momentum for the adoption of net zero carbon policies, and with the signing of the Inflation Reduction Act in August 2022 that will provide hundreds of billions of dollars of investment in clean energy, that net zero carbon future now looks more achievable. E3 has been at the forefront of analyzing possible decarbonization pathways across North America. While there are multiple potential pathways on the road to net zero, it will ultimately result in a fundamental shift over time from an era of dominated by fossil fuel generation resources to one dominated by renewables, energy storage, and demand-side resources. This will result in a major transformation in how electricity markets function.

RENEWABLE ENERGY OUTLOOK FOR ASEAN TOWARDS A REGIONAL ENERGY TRANSITION

whitePaper | September 30, 2022

The Southeast Asia region will see rapid economic growth in the coming decades and energy use is set to grow significantly. Today, the region stands at a crossroads. On the one hand, it can pursue a path of continued reliance on fossil fuels, most of which come from non-indigenous sources, increasing the region’s emissions and exposure to volatile and increasingly expensive global commodity markets. On the other, the region could utilise its ample, affordable, indigenous renewable energy resources to lower energy costs, reduce emissions and drive regional economic development. This second edition of the Renewable energy outlook for ASEAN was developed in collaboration the ASEAN Center for Energy (ACE) and the ASEAN Renewable Energy Sub-sector Network. It is guided by IRENA’s World energy transitions outlook and builds upon the first Renewable energy outlook for ASEAN, released in 2016, by incorporating a net-zero pathway and a longer-term perspective to 2050.

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.

Deeper waters, stronger winds

whitePaper | October 18, 2022

The world is faced with three global and interconnected crises: An energy crisis, led by supply disruption and skyrocketing costs of energy; a climate crisis, caused by our historic and current greenhouse gas emissions; and a biodiversity crisis, marked by habitat degradation and biodiversity loss. These megatrends influence and exacerbate each other, making it imperative to consider them together when developing effective responses.
