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 […]
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.
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.
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.
As a company strategy Vensys Energy AG of Germany aims at entering new wind markets by issuing wind turbine production and geographical sales licence packages to local partners. Eize de Vries evaluates Vensys's direct drive wind technology and licence partner CKD NOVE Energo.
Thanks to its long coastline and maritime climate, the UK has the best wind resources in Europe, and some of the best in the world. Reflecting this, over the last few years the country's wind industry has grown rapidly – reaching a capacity of more than 3.5 GW and becoming the global leader in offshore installations.
A clear understanding and predictive modelling of resources already yields dividends in the fossil-fuelled sector. And this approach is even more important for the wind industry, where even a slight variation in wind energy production can have significant financial impact, says Richard Krauze.
