Higher solar ambition can lower bioenergy in REPowerEU

Europe’s over-reliance on imported fossil fuels has led to today’s painfully high energy bills and has been weaponized by Putin throughout Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. The EU’s ‘REPowerEU’ plan, formed in response to the invasion, takes the positive step of increasing renewables in order to decrease gas imports and meet climate objectives.

Eternal Ethanol: Fueling the cooperation between India-Brazil

Biofuels such as ethanol can simultaneously address these two problems, especially in countries with a natural vocation for sugarcane cultivation, such as Brazil and India, the two major producers of sugar. In this perspective, sugarcane bioethanol represents not only an alternative to petrol, but also a viable and efficient solution for one of the greatest global demands – the mitigation of the climate crisis.

Renewable energy outlook for South East Asia

Southeast Asia stands at a crossroads. Either it can continue its reliance on fossil fuels – more of which are coming from non-indigenous sources, thereby increasing exposure to volatile, and increasingly expensive, global commodity markets – or the region can utilise the ample, affordable and indigenous local renewable energy resource in an energy transition pathway.

Cost declines in 2021 may not be repeated for solar PV and wind power in 2022: IRENA 

The cost declines seen in 2021 may not be repeated for solar PV and wind power in 2022, as supply chain constraints have been having an impact since late 2020, while commodity price rises accelerated in late 2021. These two factors saw equipment prices increase after experiencing lows in the first half of 2020, when the pandemic first took hold. Yet, the impact of these factors on projects commissioned in 2021 was not enough to raise the full year weighted average LCOE in many individual markets, nor at a global level.

Scaling up biomass in South-East Asia: Report by IRENA

The analysis demonstrates an abundance of untapped bioenergy in Southeast Asia, with at least 7.1 EJ of bioenergy per year by 2050 – in the five countries studied (Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar, Thailand and Vietnam). It also identifies immediate opportunities for adopting bioenergy in Southeast Asia’s energy markets, demonstrating the potential over the medium- and long-term horizons for sustainable biomass to economically meet 2.8 EJ of the energy demand served by fossil fuels.
