Under the MoU, Ervia will work with Equinor, a world leader in CCS technology, and the Norwegian Government's wider Northern Lights project, which aims to drive CCS development across Europe. If successful, the project would see carbon emissions from Ireland's electricity production and large industry captured and sequestered in Norway's geological reserves in the North Sea. Northern Lights project partners include ArcelorMittal, Air Liquide, Shell, Total, Equinor and others.

Silform's technology includes a formula and process that process coal mine waste into a water resistant pellet fuel. The company is also developing a pellet that mixes 30 pct biomass "biocoal" with 30 pct less CO2 emissions compared with traditional coal and 70 pct more calorific value compared to pure wood Biomass pellets.
The Bank of Ireland Kernel Capital Growth Fund (NI) fundg will establish the plant and also scale-up R&D on broader applications of the technology and products. (Source: Silform Technologies, PR, Irish Times, 22 Aug., 2019) Contact: Silform Technologies, +44 28 9446 3759, www.silform.com

And, according to the Department of Communications, Climate Action and Environment, solar power accounted for under 0.03 pct of Ireland's overall energy supply for electricity consumption in 2017. The department also confirmed that it supports solar PV through the SEAI-led Better Energy Communities and pilot Deep Retrofit Scheme.
Under its 2009 Renewable Energy Directive, Ireland is required to generate a minimum of 16 pct of its energy requirement from renewable sources by the year 2020.

In a statement Emera said it "sees no further value in pursuing the particular tidal power project" but intends to intends to continue to participate in in-stream tidal energy projects.
The Cape Sharp Tidal project involved the installation of a 2-MW OpenHydro Open-Centre turbine at the Fundy Ocean Research Centre for Energy (FORCE) in Nova Scotia, Canada. The device was hooked to the grid in November 2016 and was recovered in June 2017 for certain modifications. It was re-deployed on July 22 and grid-connected on July 24, 2018.
