Global Wind Power Capacity to Grow by 60% Over Next 5 Years

Global Wind Power Capacity to Grow by 60% Over Next 5 Years

Slow project development due to political instability, immature support mechanisms and increasing competition from solar results has led to a slight downgrade in our forecasts for wind in Africa.

Chinese Firms Could Rule Offshore Wind Market Without Ever Leaving Home

Chinese Firms Could Rule Offshore Wind Market Without Ever Leaving Home

The potential size of China's surging offshore wind market means that, despite having less advanced technology than their Western peers, Chinese original equipment manufacturers could lead the global offshore wind order rankings in years to come, said Luke Lewandowski, director at Wood Mackenzie Power & Renewables.

Amazon Jumps Back Into Corporate Renewables Market

Amazon Jumps Back Into Corporate Renewables Market

2018 was a record year for corporate renewable-energy procurements, in the U.S. and globally, as the cost of wind and solar continued to fall and more companies grew comfortable with the complexities of buying power.

Old Toyota car plant to become green hydrogen hub, with backing of ARENA

Today’s announcement with ARENA aligns with our global drive to promote sustainable mobility and to play a leading role in the transition to a decarbonised future,” Callachor said.“Hydrogen has the potential to play a pivotal role in the future because it can be used to store and transport energy from wind, solar and other renewable sources to power many things, including vehicles like the Toyota Mirai Fuel Cell Electric Vehicle.

The Global Wind Energy Council also announced on Tuesday that the industry installed 51.3 gigawatts of new capacity last year, which is 3.6 percent less than the previous year, but the figures also reveal a shifting industry that’s exploring new ways of delivering power.

The 2018 Grid Edge Year in Review

The 2018 Grid Edge Year in Review

This bigger-picture view was summed up neatly at our Wood Mackenzie Power & Renewables conference in November, where Prajit Ghosh, head of global strategy, pointed out that solar, wind and energy storage are on a cost decline path that puts them in position to knock not just coal and nuclear power, but potentially natural gas-fired generation as well.

North Sea accounts for 90% of global offshore wind power, report finds

North Sea accounts for 90% of global offshore wind power, report finds

An offshore innovation report by the International Renewable Energy Agency (Irena) claims data shows “90% of global installed offshore wind capacity is in the North Sea”. Moray East Offshore Windfarm added that it will also generate power at almost two-thirds less than the cost of current UK wind farms.

Opinion | Stopping Climate Change Is Hopeless. Let’s Do It.

Opinion | Stopping Climate Change Is Hopeless. Let’s Do It.

Every year, in every country, for half a century.We’d need to spread the world’s best climate practices globally — like electric cars in Norway, energy efficiency in California, land protection in Costa Rica, solar and wind power in China, vegetarianism in India, bicycle use in the Netherlands.We’d face opposition the whole way.
