2019, November, 18, 12:45:00AES STREAMLINES ASSET MANAGEMENT
AES is a Fortune 500 global power company that provides affordable, sustainable energy across 14 countries. Efficient processes are key to business success. Measure solved pain points that plagued their inspection data workflow, including tools for better aerial data collection, automated data sorting, and visual data analysis. They eliminated manual processes such as manual entry of inspection results into SAP.
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, 28, 14:10:00OFFSHORE WIND WILL UP TO $1 TLN
Offshore wind power capacity is set to increase by at least 15-fold worldwide by 2040, becoming a $1 trillion business.
2019, October, 23, 11:35:00ASIA'S WIND ENERGY WILL UP
Global wind power could rise ten-fold reaching over 6000 GW by 2050. By midcentury, wind could cover one third of global power needs and – combined with electrification – deliver a quarter of the energy-related carbon emission reductions needed to meet the Paris climate targets. To reach this objective, onshore and offshore wind capacity will need to increase four-fold and ten-fold respectively every year compared to today.
2019, October, 23, 11:10:00COLOMBIA'S RENEWABLE INVESTMENT $2.2 BLN
Colombia has awarded contracts for wind and solar projects worth about $2.2 billion, the government said on Tuesday, as part of its efforts to boost renewable energy generation in the Andean country.
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, 20, 15:20:00U.S. WIND ENERGY UP
The U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) expects that U.S. wind capacity additions in both 2019 and in 2020 will be near the annual record level of additions set in 2012.
2019, September, 18, 17:55:00U.S. GAS, WIND WILL UP
U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) forecasts that natural gas-fired electricity generation in the United States will increase by 6% in 2019 and by 2% in 2020. EIA also forecasts that generation from wind power will increase by 6% in 2019 and by 14% in 2020.
2019, August, 14, 12:05:00IBERDOLA SALES WIND: $2 BLN
Iberdrola will receive 1.63 billion pounds ($2 billion) for the 40% stake
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, 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, 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).
