UK PM Lobbied on Net-Zero Emissions (Opinions, Editorials & Asides)
Aldersgate Group
Date: 2019-08-02
In London, only two weeks after moving into No.10 Downing Street, UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson is being lobbied by a green policy manifesto from the Aldersgate Group. The manifesto -- Building a Competitive, Net-Zero Emissions and Climate-Ready Economy -- outlines various measures Aldergate Group members believe will accelerate the UK's decarbonisation progress while boosting environmental protections and growing the economy.

The Aldersgate Group's recommendations include: binding energy efficiency targets; fiscal incentives for energy efficient buildings; tightening of emission standards for road transport; and an outline of the powers and limitations of the nation's new post-Brexit watchdog for green standards, and others.

Earlier this week, Johnson pledged to place climate change at the "absolute core" of his Government's actions during his first appearance in the House of Commons as Prime Minister.

The Aldersgate Group currently represents more than 50 organisations from across the private, public and non-profit spaces, including Orsted, Siemens, Willmott Dixon and Cemex.

Date: 2019-05-01
Fachagentur-Windenergie (FA Wind), the German onshore wind agency, is reporting onshore wind installations in Germany dropped 87 pct in Q1 of 2019. The agency reported only 41 turbines totaling 134MW went online -- 13 pct of the average first quarter performance for between 2016 and 2018 period.

Thirteen Vestas turbines, 11 Enercon, seven Nordex, six Senvion, three ENO Energy and a single Siemens Gamesa model were spread across seven of the country's 16 states, with 13 turbines in the western state of Rhineland Palatinate alone. Eight turbines were part of repowering projects meaning net capacity growth was lower than 134MW.

Out of 730 turbines that won an allocation in 2017, only 35 have been commissioned, five of them in the first three months of 2019. The permitting situation has slightly improved with 111 turbines (413MW) getting the green light in the first quarter, a third more capacity than the average of the same periods of 2017 and 2018.
