Offshore wind poised for growth: Future looks brighter

Offshore wind poised for growth: Future looks brighter

Offshore wind currently provides less than 850 MW capacity, but the European Wind Energy Association estimates that this could rise to 5 GW in 2010. If that is to happen, a huge amount of development is needed and a number of structural obstacles must be overcome. Rolf de Vos speculates on the future of offshore wind.
Could Rising Seas Yield Common Ground? Exploring Opportunities for Climate Collaboration with the Trump Administration

Could Rising Seas Yield Common Ground? Exploring Opportunities for Climate Collaboration with the Trump Administration

In May 2016, then-candidate Donald Trump released his America First Energy Plan, including a number of measures to be taken within the first 100 days of his presidency. Broadly speaking, these commitments reflect the intent of the Trump administration to deregulate domestic U.S. energy production to drive private sector growth for coal, oil, and natural gas. 
Is Timeshifting PV’s Post-Incentive Future?

Is Timeshifting PV’s Post-Incentive Future?

Timeshifting. The ability to store something for consumption at a more convenient time. Great for watching your favourite television shows. Ideal for solar PV, too, but sadly we are not at a stage where solar energy is widely timeshifted via a programmable box. At least, not yet.
Solar Closes In on Grid Parity

Solar Closes In on Grid Parity

In the world of renewables, particularly solar, grid parity is a term that is bandied about a lot. But what does it actually mean, and when is it going to happen?
Renewables vs. Nuclear: Do We Need More Nuclear Power?

Renewables vs. Nuclear: Do We Need More Nuclear Power?

For at least the next 10 years, when considering new capacity, there should be little doubt that renewables will be the generation method of choice. Utility PV, solar thermal (especially with molten salt storage as a baseload source), wind, rooftop solar and biomass will be the highlights, along with contributions from biogas (sewage, landfills and livestock), geothermal, and maybe even […]
Stringing it out: Innovative solar module assembly technology

Stringing it out: Innovative solar module assembly technology

Within the framework of CrystalClear, a large European project on the development of low-cost, highly efficient silicon solar modules, a new manufacturing process has been developed that allows modules to be made using very thin solar cells. Wim Sinke explains.

Future of biodiesel? A look at the potential benefits of Jatropha

Future of biodiesel? A look at the potential benefits of Jatropha

From 26-28 March 2007 the Dutch FACT Foundation organized an international seminar on the agronomy and genetics of Jatropha curcas, attracting experts from twenty-six different countries. Eize de Vries attended the meeting on behalf of Renewable Energy World and reports on the current status of Jatropha as a source biofuel, as well as the latest expert views on the challenges lying ahead.
Israel’s Renewable Energy Sector at a Crossroads

Israel’s Renewable Energy Sector at a Crossroads

Israel’s ministerial committee for renewable energy approved last week the transfer of 290 megawatts (MW) renewable energy quotas to the solar photovoltaic sector. Specifically, quotas for 70 MW of large wind power parks, 20 MW of small wind power installations (up to 50 kW each) and 200 MW of solar thermal power plants were transferred to the solar PV industry.
CSP: Targeting Grid-Parity in Spain

CSP: Targeting Grid-Parity in Spain

A generous tariff regime as well as high insolation has driven spectacular growth in concentrated solar power (CSP) deployments in southern Spain. The challenge is now to drive down costs through economies of scale and new technologies so that CSP can one day stand subsidy-free.
