2019, June, 6, 14:50:00U.S. COAL IS CHEAPER
The new analysis finds that, on average, the levelised cost of electricity from the coal fleet is less than the levelised cost of new natural gas combined cycle (NGCC), new wind and new solar.
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, May, 24, 09:55:00SOME PROBLEMS OF WORLD ENERGY. PART FOUR.
The introduction of oxygen energy technologies will allow 3-5 times reduce the price of heat and electricity, which will expand the use of the benefits of electricity to virtually all people on Earth, regardless of their economic condition and their removal from the traditional onnyh energy sources.
2019, May, 23, 12:00:00SOME PROBLEMS OF WORLD ENERGY. PART THREE.
The technology of obtaining energy using biogas is simple and cheap. Of course, it also pollutes the environment, but its main problem is the impossibility of generating energy on an industrial scale. This technology is applicable in agriculture on farms, but it is not possible to power a factory, a city or a village from it.
2019, May, 22, 10:50:00SOME PROBLEMS OF WORLD ENERGY. PART TWO.
Today the world production of heat, mechanical and electrical energy exceeds 50 trillion. kW / h per year or 5.7 billion kWh per hour. At the same time, more than 80% of the production of all types of energy comes from the burning of fossil fuels - hydrocarbon energy.
2019, May, 21, 15:15:00SOME PROBLEMS OF WORLD ENERGY
We will not talk about hydrocarbon energy - it is expensive, uses limited fuel supplies (oil, gas, coal) and pollutes the environment very much. We consider only three types of electricity generation - nuclear, solar and oxygen.
2019, May, 21, 15:10:00SEVEN SOLAR PROJECTS $1.5 BLN
In line with plans to localise the production of renewable energy in Saudi Arabia as part of its Vision 2030 economic diversification push, seven photovoltaic solar power projects with a capacity of 1.52 GW and worth $1.51bn (SAR5.6bn) were launched on the side-lines of the recently concluded Saudi Elenex exhibition.
2019, May, 15, 11:52:00U.S. ENERGY PRODUCTION UP 8%
The United States produced a record amount of energy from various sources in 2018, reaching 96 quadrillion British thermal units (quads), an 8% increase from 2017. This increase in production outpaced the 4% increase in U.S. energy consumption, which also reached a record high of 101 quads.
2019, May, 13, 12:20:00EUROPE GAS STRATEGY: €139 BLN
The main conclusion of the study was that reduction targets can be achieved even in a non-technology-specific scenario (Evolution) by using the networks. A GHG reduction of 55% by 2030 and 95% by 2050 (relative to 1990 levels) was achieved for the energy industry, buildings and industry €139 billion cheaper than in a highly regulated approach with electrification by means of heat pumps (Revolution).
2019, April, 29, 11:20:00RENEWABLE FALLING COSTS
Now, rapidly falling costs for these technologies are boosting global renewable energy capacity. Renewable energy sources can help reduce carbon emissions substantially and the effects of global warming.
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.
2019, April, 5, 10:15:00RENEWABLE IS A THIRD
The decade-long trend of strong growth in renewable energy capacity continued in 2018 with global additions of 171 gigawatts (GW), according to new data released by the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) today. The annual increase of 7.9 per cent was bolstered by new additions from solar and wind energy, which accounted for 84 per cent of the growth. A third of global power capacity is now based on renewable energy.
2019, March, 27, 12:00:00GLOBAL ENERGY DEMAND UP 2.3%
IEA - Energy demand worldwide grew by 2.3% last year, its fastest pace this decade, an exceptional performance driven by a robust global economy and stronger heating and cooling needs in some regions.
2019, March, 27, 11:30:00UAE SOLAR INVESTMENT $2 BLN
The Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) and a consortium led by Saudi Arabia’s ACWA Power and the Chinese-government owned Silk Road Fund have completed financing of the 950 MW fourth phase of the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park, it was announced on Sunday.
2019, March, 20, 10:20:00U.S. RENEWABLE UP
EIA - Renewable generation provided a new record of 742 million megawatthours (MWh) of electricity in 2018, nearly double the 382 million MWh produced in 2008. Renewables provided 17.6% of electricity generation in the United States in 2018.
