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, 25, 14:50:00U.S. SOLAR INVESTMENT $87 BLN
The U.S. solar energy industry will add an additional 113,000 jobs and generate $87 billion in investment over the next decade if U.S. lawmakers extend the sector’s key tax credit, a report published on Tuesday said.
2019, September, 20, 15:15:00DUBAI SOLAR ENERGY
The Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park is the world’s largest single-site project to generate renewable energy. It will have a capacity of 5,000 megawatts (MW) by 2030 with investments of AED 50 billion. It is based on the independent power producer (IPP) model. This model contributed to world record prices for solar energy projects. According to a study published by Japan's Nikkei Asian Review, the UAE's interest in renewable energy production has contributed to its global cost reduction. Through its projects, the solar park will accelerate the shift towards adopting and using solar energy.
2019, September, 17, 12:40:00INDIA'S RENEWABLE INVESTMENT $2 BLN
the Indian government wants state-run companies to build massive clean energy parks at a cost of around $2 billion each.
2019, September, 17, 12:35:00ABU DHABI'S SOLAR PLANT 2GW
Emirates Water and Electricity Company (Ewec) has revealed that construction work on the 2,000MW solar plant in Al Dhafra region is under way, with the photovoltaic (PV) power project expected to be operational in the first quarter of 2022 taking Abu Dhabi’s solar capacity to 3,200MW.
2019, September, 5, 14:55:00CHINA'S NUCLEAR POWER UP
The share of nuclear power generation in China has picked up over the last three years, and nuclear power growth will displace thermal coal in China by 22 million mt in 2019, Citi analysts said in a note Thursday.
2019, August, 6, 12:20:00GERMAN SOLAR ENERGY UP 54%
German solar generated a record 46 TWh in 2018, covering 8% of electricity demand.
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, July, 1, 11:00:00UAE SOLAR ENERGY START
Emirates Water and Electricity Company (EWEC), a leading company in the coordination of planning, purchasing and providing of water and electricity across the UAE, has announced that ‘Noor Abu Dhabi’, the world’s largest single solar project, with a capacity of 1,177MW, has started commercial operation.
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.
