European Energy Efficient Mortgage in Planning Stage (Ind. Report)
Energy Efficiency
Date: 2019-09-27
Meeting in Brussels, the European Mortgage Industry -- including 47 key lending institutions, 17 national, European and International authorities and relevant market stakeholders -- is reportedly preparing to launch an Energy Efficient Mortgages Initiative (EEMI) pilot and are mobilizing European and global mortgage markets with a view to channeling private financing to "green" the building stock in the EU and beyond.

The Energy Efficient Mortgages Action Plan (EeMAP) Initiative -- led by the European Mortgage Federation-European Covered Bond Council (EMF-ECBC), Ca' Foscari University of Venice, RICS, the Europe Regional Network of the World Green Building Council, E.ON and SAFE Goethe University Frankfurt -- aims to create an energy efficient mortgage through which home purchasers are incentivized to improve the energy efficiency of their building or acquire an already energy efficient property by way of favourable conditions linked to the mortgage.

The assumption is that energy efficiency has a risk mitigation effect for banks as a result of the impact on a borrower's ability to service his/her loan and on the value of the property, a correlation which the EeMAP Initiative will seek to substantiate.

Vestas Claims German "Lighthouse" Wind Project (Int'l Report)
E.ON, Vestas
Date: 2019-08-28
Danish global wind turbine manufacturer Vestas reports receipt of an order from German utility E.ON's Avacon Natur subsidiary for a 29 MW wind power plant at a steel production facility in Lower Saxony.

The order is a "lighthouse project" due to its location and limited space on the steel producer's premises, according to Avacon Natur. To accommodate, Vestas will develop specific transportation and installation solutions as well as engineer, procure and construct turbines, foundations, roads and crane pads for the site-specific approach. The project will generate roughly 75 GWh per year -- sufficient power for over 20,000 German households.

E.On, Google Touting Sunroof Platform for UK Households (Int'l)
E.ON,Google,Sunroof
Date: 2018-05-23
E.On and Google are reporting a partnership to bring their Sunroof platform to British households in the coming weeks. The Sunroof platform uses Google Earth and Google Maps, 3D models and machine learning to provide an accurate estimate of a home's individual solar potential.

As in Germany, E.On will be the first energy company in Britain to offer its customers a digital assessment of the PV potential of their homes.

Ultimately, Sunroof "translates" the determined amount of light into energy and the potential cost savings. Based on this data, customers in Germany can request a complete package consisting of a photovoltaic module and the E.ON SolarCloud, optionally with Aura battery storage. E.On also provides a "sunshine guarantee" to ensure that the solar system achieves the calculated yields, with lower values met with financial compensation by the company.

The two firms are also preparing a market launch in Italy, while the one-year programme in Germany will now be extended until the end of the year. Google launched Sunroof in the United States in 2015. The platform is currently covering approximately 60 million buildings. According to Google, around 79 pct of the roofs covered by the application were suitable for the installation of a solar power generator, while in the south of the country, their percentage reached 90 pct.

BLUE PILOT to Cut Offshore Wind Const. Costs (New Prod & Tech)
The Carbon Trust
Date: 2018-03-16
The Carbon Trust is reporting the launch of BLUE PILOT, a large-scale demonstration project aimed at reducing costs and underwater noise during construction of offshore wind farms as part of the Offshore Wind Accelerator (OWA). The BLUE PILOT project will deploy The BLUE Hammer, a new type of pile driver developed by Fistuca BV., a Dutch technology company founded as a spin-off from Eindhoven University of Technology.

It is anticipated that the project will enable potential lifetime savings of €33 -- €40 million for a 720MW offshore wind farm.

OWA partners E.ON, EnBW, Orsted, Statoil and Vattenfall, alongside additional industry partners Fistuca, Van Oord, Shell and Sif are contributing €3.2 million in project funding, while the Netherlands Enterprise Agency has granted public subsidies of over €2.5 million.

In the BLUE PILOT project the hammer will be tested offshore at a location in Dutch waters. Sif will provide the monopile, and Van Oord will support the installation logistics. The other industry partners will provide funding and strategic advice into the project to ensure its relevance to future commercial projects.

According to Navigant Research, the total annual revenue for Energy Storage for Renewables Integration is expected to surpass $23 billion (€19.1 billion ) by 2026. The projected growth for utility-scale and behing-the-metre (BTM) applications is being fueled by the falling prices in solar, wind and energy storage, according to Navigant research analyst Adam Wilson.

Overall, energy storage systems (ESSs) are facilitating the integration of renewable energy sources without affecting grid reliability. Navigant Research noted that customers in the utility-scale and BTM markets are now offered greater flexibility in installing photovoltaic (PV) plants in combination with ESSs thanks to the expansion of solar power and the lower ESSs prices.

Date: 2017-07-19
The Energy efficient Mortgages Action Plan (EeMAP) Initiative, a market-led and first-of-its-kind initiative, aims to incentivize people to purchase energy efficient properties or improve the energy efficiency of existing properties by offering preferential finance linked to the mortgage.

The initiative aims to demonstrate that energy efficiency has risk mitigation effects for lenders because of its impact in enhancing a borrower's ability to service their loan and on the value of the property which could, therefore, qualify for a better capital treatment.

EeMAP is an initiative by the European Mortgage Federation -- European Covered Bond Council (EMF-ECBC); UK Green Buildings Council; Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors; Ca' Foscari University of Venice, E.ON and SAFE Goethe University Frankfurt. The project has received funding from the EU Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme.

The website also hosts a series of videos summarizing the debates held at the Kick-Off Meeting and the comments of key supporters, including MEP Bendt Bendtsen, rapporteur on the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive.

Glasgow, UK-based Kite Power Systems (KPS) reports its kite wind technology has secured a £2 million equity investment from the Scottish Investment Bank (SIB). Other investors include E.ON, Schlumberger and Shell Technology Ventures which have committed to a combined investment of £5 million.

KPS' 40-MW power system comprises two kites which have the ability to fly up to a height of 1500 ft. By using tethers, the kites are attached to a winch system that produces electricity as it spools out. The technology can be deployed both offshore and onshore. Power generation through its kite technology would not need subsidies from governments owing to the system's lower capital and operational costs. The company plans to develop a 3MW onshore system at the test facility and install a similar sized power system in offshore waters.

Wind Kite Power Systems Attracts £5Mn Investment (Ind. Report)
Royal Dutch Shell,Kite Power Systems
Date: 2016-12-14
Anglo-Dutch oil giant Royal Dutch Shell reports it will join E.ON and Schlumberger to invest £5 million in in Essex, UK-based startup Kite Power Systems (KPS).

KPS's technology uses lightweight kites tethered to a turbine on the ground. Two kites work in tandem, with one rising on the wind to a height of 450 meters while the other falls. Their looping motion -- at speeds of up to 100mph -- rotates the turbine to generate electricity.
