Everfuel is connecting the complete value chain to commercialize hydrogen fuel across Europe by adding innovations and removing inefficiencies. It aims to establish a Scandinavian fueling network with 40-50 public hydrogen stations by 2023, enabling transport in and between major cities and corridors. Check out their presentation highlighting the company’s plans in this space
At a recent conference on Solar Power in Africa, organised by REGlobal, Terje Osmundsen, CEO, Empower New Energy presented a case study of a hybrid solar power project at one of the largest poultry farms in Nigeria. Check out his presentation to learn about the hybrid solution deployed at the solar power project.
Solar PV contribution to Africa’s national energy mix will increase. But large PV plants often underperform relative to predicted electricity generation and under performance has a significant impact on financial returns. Not all modules/systems perform well over time. Given that the PV industry is relatively new in South Africa, and focus on quality is lagging compared to more developed markets, how can we contribute to long term reliability of PV plants to ensure security of supply and reduce the investment risk?
As car manufacturers continue to increase their electric vehicle offerings, there is a growing need for innovative strategies to provide sustainable electricity sources to power those vehicles. One of the emerging strategies in to install a solar-powered charging station that will enable a sustainable fuel source for transportation needs.
The uptake of renewable energy in Algeria since 2011 has been very slow despite of a lot of talk. There has been just under 400 MW of capacity installed. Check out the presentation by Adel Baba-Aissa, Director, Renewable Energy Partner made at our conference on Solar Power in Africa.
In 2020, clean energy infrastructure outpaced other income-oriented equities, gaining traction with investors as the world increased its focus on renewable energy. Goldman Sachs believes that renewable energy sources are expected to overtake crude oil and other liquids as the single largest energy source by 2050.
The mobility industry has been responding to a global demand for higher sustainability for many years. The electric vehicle (EV) is one answer. The acceleration toward EV production is shaking up the automotive industry in ways no one could have predicted. How manufacturers respond could mark an industry revolution not seen in decades.
Momentum currently behind hydrogen is unprecedented, with more and more policies, projects, and plans by governments and companies in all parts of the world.

Renewables Consulting Group (RCG) recently commissioned a report for Norwegian Energy Partners on Global Offshore Wind: Annual Market Report. It highlights the new emerging regions and markets for offshore wind, cost trends and emerging industry structure among other trends.
A joint webinar by the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) and the Sustainable Energy Development Authority (SEDA) in Malaysia discussed transitioning electricity consumers to prosumers. The event took place in the view of an increasing decentralised power system, innovative technologies, regulations and business models lead to higher share of renewables in power systems.
The global electric-vehicle (EV) industry is expanding rapidly. The regional output differs, with some EV markets reaching near-mainstream status, while others remain neutrally stuck. However, the Global EV sales are getting big enough to create substantial profit pools for well-positioned suppliers and other upstream players. Bloomberg’s report presents the analytical depiction of the global EV, HEV and PHEV market analysis along with the current trends and future estimations to depict imminent investment pockets.
Japan has huge offshore wind power potential. The Japan Wind Power Association (JWPA) proposes to set an ambitious and clear medium- to long-term introduction target. Check out the presentation to read about the key initiatives and JWPA’s recommendations to make offshore wind power the primary power source in the country.
Europe has the platform for becoming a global leader in green hydrogen: with strong enabling regulation, large demand clusters, electrolyser quality, (early) innovation leadership, and significant automation strengths which can be used to drive down costs. These advantages must be leveraged.
According to forecasts, the US offshore wind industry is expected to deliver 25 GW by 2029. Of this, 9 GW has already been contracted or will be soon approved. The state renewable purchase standards contracting call for 34 GW by 2035. Meanwhile the Federal lease program currently supports approximately 20 GW to 30 GW of projects depending on turbine density.
Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory recently released a summary of publicly available data on key trends in US utility-scale solar sector with a focus on ground-mounted projects of over 5 MW (AC) capacity. It covered deployment and technology trends, state-wise solar penetration, performance analysis, PPA prices, LCOE, etc.
