fully renewable india in 2050 can take a shortcut to emission-free future

India can function on a fully renewable electricity system in 2050. This is the result of a new research by Lappeenranta University of Technology (LUT). The study shows that developing countries that have an abundance of renewable resources do not need to take the path of the western countries where increasing living standards have been coupled with heavy emissions from electricity generation and other industry. They can move straight to renewable systems and do it cheaply.

abbott hurt renewables

The Canberra Times' editorial of March 29 (page 14) identified the primary reason for the increase in ACT's electricity price as rising wholesale electricity prices.These were responsible for 76 per cent of the price increase.The editorial also mentioned that renewable energy costs were responsible for a minor part of the increase (11 per cent).Left unmentioned was the role of the Abbott government in causing this renewable cost increase.For many years, renewable energy certificates were trading around $35 per certificate. To some extent, this price reflected the cost premium of renewable energy relative to the wholesale price of electricity.The value of renewable certificates plummeted to $20 when the Abbott government attempted to axe the renewable energy target, which could potentially

dutch renewable energy use edges up to 5.9% in 2016

Photo: Depositphotos.comEnergy generated from renewable sources in the Netherlands was almost unchanged at 5.9% (5.8%) in 2016, the national statistics office CBS reported on Tuesday.According to the new figures, wind and solar energy increased by about 20%, but the share of biomass fell back by 2%. Nevertheless, biomass remains the largest source and accounts for 63% of renewable energy production.The Netherlands is supposed to ensure 14% of its energy supply comes from renewable resources and carbon dioxide emissions are cut by 25% by 2020.

Renewable energy is driving profound changes in cities. It’s happening much more quickly than was expected even five years ago.

lower costs, greater investment produces record year for australian renewable en

The renewable energy industry says 2017 is shaping up as a bumper year for clean energy production in Australia, due to plunging costs and greater investment confidence. Renewable energy produced a record share of Australia’s electricity in 2016, with a slew of new projects putting Australia on track to reach the 2020 Renewable Energy Target.More than 17 per cent of Australia’s electricity came from renewable sources last year, up from 14.6 per cent in 2015, thanks to greater rainfall in key hydro catchments and a series of new wind and solar projects, according to a new report from the Clean Energy Council.Clean Energy Council Chief Executive Kane Thornton said the industry was set for another record year in 2017.“Every month brings new project announcements. While total investment in lar

A bipartisan group of mayors from across the country unanimously backed an ambitious commitment for U.S. cities to run entirely on renewable sources such as wind and solar in two decades.

apple hits 96% renewable energy worldwide as suppliers join pledge for 100%

In an interview with Bloomberg, Apple’s Lisa Jackson has announced that the company has achieved 96% worldwide renewable energy up from 2015’s 93%. Already having been at 100% renewable energy in the United States, three more of the company’s worldwide suppliers have pledged to follow suit.In the interview, Jackson mentions that the company won’t stop until it hits 100% everywhere. Within the United States Apple is at 100% renewable energy usage, alongside 23 other countries. The current 96% of renewable energy sources includes Apple’s offices, data centers, stores, and distribution centers. The last few percentage points to reach 100% will come from the supply chain, companies Apple doesn’t explicitly own.Biel Crystal Manufactory Ltd., Sunwoda Electronic Co., and Compal Electronics Inc. a

the world spent less money to add more renewable energy than ever in 2016

Lawrence Berkeley LabShare this storyA new study tracking global investment in renewable energy found that investors spent less money in 2016 to add more renewable energy capacity than in any previous year. In total, investors only spent about $241.6 billion in renewable energy investments in 2016, down 23 percent from 2015.But they got a lot of bang for their buck. According to the collaborative report from the UN, the Frankfurt School, and Bloomberg New Energy Finance, investments in “wind, solar, biomass, and waste-to-energy, geothermal, small hydro, and marine sources [like wave and tidal energy]” resulted in the addition of 138.5 GW of energy capacity in 2016. That represents a nine percent increase year-over-year from the 127.5 gigawatts added in 2015.The difference in trends—falling

nederland commits to 100 percent renewable energy by 2025

Nederland on Tuesday night became the fourth community in Colorado to commit to transitioning to 100 percent renewable energy, following the introduction of a resolution unanimously approval by the town's Board of Trustees.The town is the 42nd in the country to do so.Most of those 42 have committed to reaching the target by 2030, but Nederland exceeded that ambition by setting its desired deadline at 2025.Mayor Kristopher Larsen said prior to the meeting that 2030 was not aggressive enough for the small mountain town. "(W)e don't have 13 years to wait," he said.Nederland, like Boulder, is currently a customer of Xcel Energy, and the town will have to strive for its target by taking advantage of renewable-heavy programs offered by Xcel -- which has an overall portfolio that's about 25 perce

Though a mature technology, renewable thermals occupy a small niche in Connecticut--and in the U.S. at large. A new Yale-led study analyzes the market potential of this technology across the state and provides key insights into spurring consumer demand.According to the analysis, led by the Yale Center for Business and the Environment (CBEY), renewable thermals have significant market potential in the state if supported by appropriate public policy and financing tools. Renewable thermal technologies comprise a range of products -- from solar water heaters to district energy systems -- all designed to use renewable energy in the cooling of space and the heating of both space and water.Collectively, the use of energy for thermal purposes accounts for roughly one-third of all U.S. energy consu

iran and middle east could adopt fully renewable electricity systems

Iran can transition to a fully renewable electricity system and financially benefit from it by 2030. Researchers at Lappeenranta University of Technology (LUT) show that major oil-producing countries in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region could turn their abundant renewable energy resources into lucrative business opportunities in less than two decades.According to the study, a fully renewable electricity system (100% RE) is roughly 50-60 percent cheaper than other emission-free energy options for the MENA region. For example, new nuclear power costs around 110 euros per megawatt hour. Fossil-CCS option costs around 120 euros per megawatt hour. But the cost of the fully renewable energy electricity is around 60-40 euros per megawatt hour, based on financial and technical assumpt

new windfarm feeding act comes online

The ACT has moved closer to reaching its renewable energy targets, with the opening of the new wind farm at Ararat in Victoria on Tuesday.Acting Minister for Climate Change and Sustainability, Mick Gentleman, said the new wind farm moves the territory closer to reaching its 40 per cent renewable energy by 2017 target and its ultimate goal of 100 percent renewable energy by 2020.

renewable heat incentive changes | farming futures

What is the Renewable Heat Incentive?The Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) is a Government scheme to support households and businesses to generate renewable heat for their buildings. The first phase of the RHI, non-domestic RHI, was introduced in 2011. The domestic RHI was opened to applicants in 2014. The RHI is similar to the Feed-In Tariffs, which incentivise smaller renewable electricity generation, but it is paid for by HM Treasury, rather than through consumers’ energy bills. Ofgem has a dedicated RHI page setting out how the scheme works in detail and how to apply.In the Spending Review in November 2015, the Government confirmed funding for the scheme to 2020. It also published a consultation on its review of the RHI, aimed at maintaining affordability and increasing the focus on techn
