2024: The Year Of The Energy Grid?
As we enter further into 2024, developers still anticipate governments to take action and overcome the challenges we have regarding an inadequately connected, outdated, and centralized energy grid. Within the EU, the pivotal question emerges: Can the EU Action Plan for Grids, backed by a €584 billion investment until 2030, truly address developers’ pressing grid
Addressing the recycling challenge associated with wind turbine blades, particularly in a cost-effective manner, has long been a concern for operators of renewable wind projects. While the decommissioning responsibilities typically fall on project owners, the focus has largely been on industrialized decommissioning, neglecting the crucial aspect of constructing high-performance blades from more sustainable materials. The

Solar panel decommissioning is at an inflection point. Shifts in commodity prices and secondary markets, coupled with rising costs and inflation are calling traditional assumptions about decommissioning into question. Between a massive oversupply of new panels, falling prices, and rising costs, solar decommissioning has become more expensive than many utilities and other solar owners initially

Perovskite solar cell lab testing
NREL Research Reveals Importance of Simultaneous Conditions To Determine Problem Areas. Testing Perovskite Solar Cells in “outdoor-real-conditions” is crucial to reach commercialization Perovskite solar cells should be subjected to a combination of stress tests simultaneously to predict best how they will function outdoors, according to researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy

How much green hydrogen will Europe’s industry need in 2050?
The transition to a climate-neutral industry in Europe is essential to combat the climate crisis. At the center of this industrial transformation is the production of steel, cement and chemicals. A new study by Fraunhofer ISI for the EU Commission has examined the impacts of the industry transition on the European energy system in different
Europe shifted 600 TWh electricity generation by source to green power in 10 years
The road to Net Zero Emissions in 2050 is an essential yet challenging global task to deal with. In the last decade, Europe has shifted its electricity generation by source from fossil fuels to green power. According to data from Ember, green electricity generation by source has never been higher. 59 % of electricity came
