2020, January, 13, 15:20:00INDIA'S ENERGY DEMAND COULD DOUBLE
Based on current policies, India’s energy demand could double by 2040, with electricity demand potentially tripling as a result of increased appliance ownership and cooling needs.
2019, December, 2, 13:20:00INDIA'S RENEWABLE WILL UP
IEEFA forecasts India's cumulative renewable energy capacity to expand 17% year-on-year to 93.5GW by the end of 2019/20, adding a total of 13.5GW in 2019/20 (relative to just 5.7GW to-date).
2019, November, 15, 14:00:00U.S. SHALE FREEZING
Blistering growth in shale fields propelled U.S. crude output to a record 13 million barrels per day (bpd) this month.
2019, November, 15, 13:45:00U.S. DECARBONISATION 2050
A U.S. Climate Agenda recommends that a U.S. decarbonization strategy be guided by these key objectives: achieving net-zero emissions no later than 2050,
2019, November, 11, 12:50:00AFRICA'S ENERGY DEMAND GROWTH TWICE
Energy demand in Africa grows twice as fast as the global average, and Africa’s vast renewables resources and falling technology costs drive double-digit growth in deployment of utility-scale and distributed solar photovoltaics (PV), and other renewables, across the continent.
2019, October, 4, 09:55:002050: RENEWABLES WILL BE HALF
EIA projects that renewables will collectively increase to 49% of global electricity generation by 2050. Of the top three renewable sources, EIA expects solar’s share of generation to grow the fastest and hydroelectric’s share to grow the slowest.
2019, September, 16, 14:15:00U.S. HYDROGEN NUCLEAR POWER
A project to demonstrate the production of hydrogen in integrated energy systems at US nuclear power plants is one of three selected by the US Department of Energy (DOE) to receive a share of USD15 million in its latest announcement of project selectees.
2019, September, 2, 12:20:00SWITZERLAND WILL CUT EMISSIONS TO ZERO
The Swiss government has announced it will cut its greenhouse gas emissions to a net-zero level by 2050. According to Swiss government statistics, about 60% of Switzerland's electricity generation comes from renewable sources, most of it from hydro (56.6%). Nuclear contributes about 37.6% and about 2.5% comes from fossil fuels.
2019, July, 20, 12:05:00INDIA'S RENEWABLE WILL 60%
India is likely to obtain 63% of its installed power capacity from non-fossil fuel sources (including hydro) by 2029-30, according to the Central Electricity Authority (CEA). This would significantly exceed the country’s Paris agreement target of a 40% share of installed power capacity from non-fossil fuel sources by 2030.
2019, July, 2, 14:30:00U.S. FOSSIL FUELS UP
Fossil fuels—petroleum, natural gas, and coal—have accounted for at least 80% of energy consumption in the United States for well over a century.
2019, June, 13, 16:40:00GLOBAL ENERGY DEMAND +2.9%
Primary energy consumption grew at a rate of 2.9% last year, almost double its 10-year average of 1.5% per year, and the fastest since 2010.
2019, May, 30, 17:55:00GERMANY'S COAL IS MAIN
Electricity generated from Germany’s coal-fired plants declined by 46 million megawatthours (MWh) between 2000 and 2017, while electricity generated from wind and solar increased by 95 million MWh and 40 million MWh, respectively. Despite these changes, coal remains the main source of generation in Germany. Coal’s share of total generation declined from 50% in 2000 to 36% in 2017, despite slight increases in 2012 and 2013 that were related to Germany’s move away from nuclear power.
2019, April, 10, 11:35:00OIL PRICES 2019-20: $65-$62
Brent crude oil spot prices averaged $66 per barrel (b) in March, up $2/b from February 2019. Brent prices for the first quarter of 2019 averaged $63/b, which is $4/b lower than the same period in 2018. Despite lower crude oil prices than last year, Brent prices in March were $9/b higher than in December 2018, marking the largest December-to-March price increase since December 2011 to March 2012.
