Iberdrola starts operations of 590 MW solar project in Spain

Iberdrola, a Spanish energy company, has begun operations at the Francisco Pizarro solar photovoltaic (PV) plant in Extremadura, Spain. The 590MW solar project is situated between the municipalities of Torrecillas de la Tiesta and Aldeacentenera (Cáceres). Built with an investment of more than €300m, the Francisco Pizarro solar facility is equipped with approximately 1.5 million solar PV modules.

We need the industry to decarbonise: Singapore’s Minister of State Low Yen Ling

Today, the power sector contributes about 40% of Singapore’s carbon emissions. To reach our net-zero emission goal by 2050, we need the industry to decarbonise. Last year, the EMA announced the Singapore Energy Transition plan to decarbonise the power sector whilst ensuring that our energy system remains secure and reliable. Singapore will harness and tap on four switches to transform our energy supply – natural gas, solar, regional power grids and emerging low-carbon alternatives.

Innovative Partnerships Bring Community Solar to Low-income Households in the US

Over the last 15 years, community solar in the United States has grown dramatically: Installed community solar capacity increased almost 700% between 2006 and 2019. To support LMI participation in the clean energy economy and broader uptake of community solar, the development of catalytic partnerships — dynamic relationships that link utilities, non-profits, financial institutions, developers and other stakeholders to ease financial impediments — will be critical.

Europe must double its pace of wind and solar deployment: Ember

With the gas crisis and Russia’s war in Ukraine, energy security been shooting up on the top of the EU’s agenda. Seeing the urgency of reducing dependence on imported fossil fuels, the European Commission and European Union (EU) member states have increased ambition on renewable energy. However, this needs to be coupled with actual delivery through national legislation, the removal of administrative barriers, effective support schemes and increased investment.

Australia reviews grid planning: AEMC’s recommendations to foster investment 

Australia is moving apace to meet its net zero target by 2050. The country’s policymakers and regulators are extensively reviewing the existing regulatory framework to make sure it is flexible enough to support the ongoing energy transition. Since transmission is an important enabler in this process, the Australian Energy Market Commission (AEMC) recently published its recommendations in its draft report on ‘Transmission Planning and Investment Review (Stage 2).’

Spurring Growth: Changing PV market dynamics and technology advances

Several developments have occurred in the PV market. These include the entry of new players, increase in wafer sizes to increase in the power output of modules and commercialisation of new technologies. Technologies such as heterojunc­­t­i­on, bifacial modules and perovskite cells are being increasingly explored. However, in 2020, silicon-wafer based PV technol­ogy accounted for 95 per cent of the total production, with monocrystalline technology accounting for 84 per cent of the total crystalline-silicon production.

Role of US DMV in Clean Transport: RMI Report

For the United States to meet its climate goals, it will need to cut emissions from transportation, the single-largest sectoral carbon emitter, by 45 percent by 2030. This requires putting 70 million electric light-duty vehicles on the road and reducing its vehicle miles traveled by 20 percent in the next few years. But how does it do that?
