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.
The Council of European Energy Regulators (CEER) along with the International Renewable Energy Association (IRENA) recently organised a webinar on dynamic regulation and digitalisation for a renewable-powered future. Check out the presentations made by representatives from both CEER and IRENA.
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.
