Electrifying Indonesia’s road transport: IEEFA Report

In Indonesia, transport is the single largest final energy-consuming sector, using imported oil and accounting for roughly a quarter of energy emissions. Legacy carmakers command a predominant, if not near-absolute, status in Indonesia’s market, but their electric plans remain lackluster. Bold fuel economy standards and other active government policies are required to restrain demand for internal combustion engine fuel and make legacy automakers work toward more efficient EVs.

European Electricity Review 2023: Ember Report

The European Electricity Review analyses full-year electricity generation and demand data for 2022 in all EU-27 countries to understand the region’s progress in transitioning from fossil fuels to clean electricity. It is the seventh annual report on the EU power sector published by Ember (previously as Sandbag). Our data is free and easily downloadable, and is available at annual and monthly granularity. We hope others also find the data useful for their own analysis.

Solar PV Utilisation in ASEAN: Report

The study examines the use of Solar PV+ in ASEAN nations and its possible effects on the energy sector. The term “Solar PV+” itself designates a method or technology that expands the capabilities of conventional solar photovoltaic (PV) systems. This may entail integrating extra elements like energy storage devices, smart grid technology, or other renewable energy sources to increase the overall efficiency and efficacy of solar power generation.

Coal Cost Crossover and Renewables Uptake in US: Report

The latest Coal Cost Crossover research finds incentives in the Inflation Reduction Act accelerate this trend – 99 percent of all U.S. coal plants (209 out of 210) are now more expensive to run than replacement by new local solar, wind, or energy storage. Replacing coal plants with local wind and solar would also save enough to finance nearly 150 gigawatts of four-hour battery storage, over 60 percent of the coal fleet’s capacity, and generate $589 billion in new investment across the U.S.

Financing a world scale hydrogen export project: Paper

It is anticipated that green hydrogen will require government support for the next 15-20 years and that green hydrogen export projects will have to compete, largely on delivered price, to supply the demand created by the importing government programmes.  Efficient project financing, both debt and equity, can play an important part in minimising the cost. This paper by Oxford Institute for Energy Studies considers a 1GW archetype project, using solar power to export green hydrogen in the form of green ammonia, and considers the key issues that will impact its ability to attract low-cost debt.
