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
Italian renewable energy associations ANIE Rinnovabili, Italia Solare, and Elettricità Futura have released a joint position paper defining a series of standards for agrivoltaics projects. A document compiled by three Italian renewables associations identifies with extreme precision the area that is allowed to be used for power generation in the two most common agrivoltaics configurations — solar arrays with elevated

In an effort to combat global warming, wind turbines are on the rise. In order to make wind energy more efficient, turbine size is increasing. Wind energy is the cleanest form of energy, but there is a problem. The potential energy from wind is lost due to various technical issues – such as cracks, lightning
Renewables on the rise: + 70% compared to 2020 with 1,397 MW. It is essential to accelerate to reach the 2030 goals.  According to the RES Observatory created by ANIE Rinnovabili, an association of ANIE Federation, based on the data from Terna of 2021 there is a cumulative total of 1,376 MW of renewables divided
Companies should now develop strategies on how to switch to renewable energies through Power Purchase Agreements. Key facts If you want to operate sustainably, you should deal intensively with how the future energy supply can be secured. To this end, companies should start in good time to set up an appropriate procurement strategy that takes

The infrastructure plan of the Italian Transmission System Operator will contribute to the green transition, with more than 30 electricity connections. The investments aim to strengthen the grid, avoid bottlenecks, and ensure the security of supply.    The South part of the country, where is the greatest production of green electricity, also suffers from diffused
The cost of electricity in Italy has never been higher. This is what emerges from the data published by Arera, the Regulatory Authority for Energy, Networks, and the Environment. In the first weeks of 2022, the Italian energy prices per MWh had an average of 216,35 €.   According to the same authority, the price is composed of 80.8% of energy, 8.4% of transportation and meter, and 10,8% taxes, while the system fees have been deducted from the government for the last quarter of 2021 and the first quarter of 2022.    The main driver of such a huge increase is found in the cost of energy: in the last period, from the third to the fourth quarter of 2021, the price went from

One of the greatest barriers to the green energy transition is storing surplus power generation from renewables. Many technologies are capable of this, and many others are coming into the market as well. In the figure below is possible to have an overview of the whole spectrum of storage technologies.   Figure 1: Energy Storage Technologies (source)  A type of technology that has not been already exploited much consists of thermal energy storage. The plants that go under that category have very high energy and power capacities, allowing them to contribute significantly to a cleaner electricity mix.  In fact, due to the increasing need of storing excess electricity from renewable sources, scalable and high efficient solutions have a big potential in the future.  Thermal energy storage can store energy in form of heat thanks to an electricity-to-heat system, like a heat pump, for periods of

The Irish Energy Roadmap Towards 2030

Ireland’s energy roadmap goal is to produce 70% of its electricity from renewable sources by 2030, in line with the direction given by the Government’s Climate Action Plan (2019).   This change will need a huge increase of clean energy sources, with at least 10 GW of new projects to be carried on, if not more. This goal will be achieved by increasing the penetration level of weather-dependent renewables like solar and wind. The
An astonishing 82% decrease in the cost of solar photovoltaic (PV) energy since 2010 has given the world a fighting chance to build a zero-emissions energy system which might be less costly than the fossil-fuelled system it replaces. The International Energy Agency projects that PV solar generating capacity must grow ten-fold by 2040 if we are to meet the dual tasks

The growing Storage Market

The storage market is expected to play a critical role in facilitating the integration of intermittent renewables into power systems and the energy transition. More specifically, variability and uncertainty related to solar and wind resources pose technical challenges for the process of balancing supply and demand, which in turn increases the need for system flexibility.  Both stand-alone
Carbon Finance for Renewable Energy Projects
Developing a project in some countries allows access to an additional income stream through carbon finance mechanisms of which the market is looking at with more and more interest.  Carbon markets emerged in the 1990s as an instrument of tackling climate change by funding carbon mitigating initiatives that generate carbon offsets. A carbon offset, or carbon credit, is a tradable unit that represents  one metric ton

Agro-voltaic in Italy
The agro-voltaic sector is characterized by a hybrid use of agricultural lands, which are exploited both for agricultural production and for the production of electricity from renewable sources (particularly, photovoltaic sources). Following the goals set out by the National Integrated Plan for Energy and Climate (“PNIEC”), the National Recovery and Resilience Plan (“PNRR”) has expressly included the
