Green Dealflow has published the transaction review for the second quarter of 2022: the full dataset for solar and wind transactions closed in this period is available here. The content is a key tool to get a clear picture of the market by the country´s records on renewable energy. To gain the possibility to jump into

The Future of Energy Storage

In May 2022 the Massachusetts Institute of Technology published the report “The Future of Energy Storage”, founded by The Alfred P. Sloan Foundation and The Heising-Simons Foundation.Energy storage enables cost-effective deep decarbonization of electric power systems with high wind and solar penetration. Deep decarbonization will require massive investments in multiple energy storage technologies, as well

Agrivoltaics: The New Frontier

“It’s now or never” is the succintest way to abbreviate the latest warning from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).  If the world is going to avoid the worst of the climate crisis, climate mitigation needs to happen now and with greater impact.  Specifically the world needs to reduce global carbon emissions by 2025
Airborne wind energy (AWE) is “the conversion of wind energy into electricity using tethered flying devices”. The research began in 1980, in 40 years interest and investment in AWE have grown substantially, especially in the last decade, with approximately 70 active research entities including over 20 technology developers globally.  Research found “potential for, and technical viability of,

You can find the original article from Watson Farley & Williams about the Italian energy decree here. We present an overview of the main amendments introduced by the Energy Decree, focussing on the photovoltaic (“PV”) and wind power sectors. I. SIMPLIFICATIONS FOR THE INSTALLATION OF RENEWABLE POWER PLANTS Extension of the simplified authorisation procedure (PAS) – Legislative
An increasing number of countries aim to replace polluting conventional generators with clean renewables. It is expected that this would lead to solar and wind production covering almost 80% of the total generation. The change in the electric system going from dispatchable conventional generators to renewables production will require investments and support from TSOs, market

Energy storage is going to be one of the most important technologies in the shift toward clean energy systems.   Because solar panels and wind turbines don´t operate continuously due to the intermittency of solar radiation and wind currents, the owner of these projects are forced to sell the electricity when these resources are available, and
Massive amounts of new wind and solar will be a make-or-break ingredient of a net-zero grid. Solar power generated less than 4 percent of the world’s electricity in 2021; by 2050, solar’s share needs to jump to 33 percent. Wind power produced less than 7 percent of electricity globally last year; by 2050, that needs to grow to 35 percent. So said the International Energy Agency last year when it laid
