GreenLogic Offers Solar Power Rebate Program (Ind. Report)
GreenLogic
Date: 2019-11-15
Southampton , New York-based solar design and installation firm GreenLogic is reporting the introduction of a solar rebate program covering the difference between the current 2019 and the lower 2020 federal solar tax credit. The federal tax credits for residential and commercial (solar ITC) solar power installations were implemented by the U.S. government in an effort to promote green energy by providing a tax credit that can be applied to reduce federal income tax payments. However, these credits will soon begin to diminish and, eventually, vanish over time.

Currently, the federal government is offering a 30 pct tax credit to those that invest in residential solar systems or commercial solar power systems. At the end of 2019, the federal tax credit will go down to 26 pct for installations completed in 2020 unless laws are implemented to extend the solar ITC. The GreenLogic solar rebate program will offset the 4 pct reduction in the 2020 solar tax credit for its clients, according to the company release.

Anaerobic Digestion
Date: 2019-11-11
In the UK, the UK Anaerobic Digestion and Bioresources Association (ADBA) is calling on national party leaders to support the anaerobic digestion (AD) industry to help the UK meet its Net Zero emissions target. With the right support, the AD industry could deliver its full potential and cut emissions by 5 pct by 2030 and contribute to the development of a long-term sustainable circular economy for the UK by treating organic wastes and recycling them into green energy, natural fertilisers, Biofuels and other valuable bioproducts, according to the ADBA release.

ADBA notes that food waste must be collected separately and diverted to AD plants for recycling, so the current commitment to mandatory separate collections for households and businesses must be put into effect as soon as possible, l ocal authorities must be funded to meet set-up and infrastructure development costs, and . Government must commit as soon as possible to additional support for AD beyond 2021 as all current support is due to end by this date.

Supporting R&I could help supercharge the AD industry and put it at the cutting edge of biorefining science. and the other renewable industries, such as wind and solar, have enjoyed consistent support and are now extremely cost-effective and established as part of our renewable energy mix. AD and biogas should be given the same fair treatment now so that it can realise its huge potential towards decarbonising the UK economy by 2030.

IEA Projects Offshore Wind Growth to $1Tn Bus. (Int'l Report)
IEA
Date: 2019-10-28
The International Energy Agency (IEA) is reporting steep cost reductions and improved technology could make offshore wind central to the world's green energy power supply. Offshore wind could also be crucial to limiting temperature rise to below two degrees Celsius this century, and the avoidance of five to seven billion tonnes of CO2 emissions from the power sector globally.

Offshore wind presently accounts for only 0.3 percent of global electricity generation, according to the IEA. Based on current and proposed policies, capacity is set to increase 15-fold over the next two decades, turning wind power into a $1 trillion business, according to the IEA.

In Europe, offshore wind will soon beat new natural gas-fired capacity on cost and be on a par with solar PV and onshore wind. The UK today has the biggest capacity for wind power, but China is likely to have the largest offshore wind fleet by 2025. The industry is also growing in markets such as the United States, Taiwan and Japan. (Source: IEA, Reuters , Oct., 2019) Contact: International Energy Agency, Dr. Fatih Birol, Exec.

Lake Erie Wind Developers Meet the Opposition (Reg & Leg)
Chautauqua County Legislature
Date: 2019-07-26
In the Empire State, the Chautauqua County Legislature didn't pull its punches in passing two motions in unanimous opposition to the construct of wind farms on Lake Erie and its shores.

Councilor Robert Bankoski(D-Dunkirk) cut right to the chase -- "We're not interested and you're not welcome here." County Executive George Borrell echoed his colleagues disdain -- "Wind turbines are destroying the economy and would destroy the lake. (Gov. Andrew) Cuomo's Green Energy Standard calling for more renewable energy is just partisan politics. (Wind farms) support a bogus political agenda. That's all it is. It is a horrible idea that has risen from the dead, again."

The resolutions as passed read that the construction of wind turbines on the lake could negatively impact migratory birds, impact fishing waters through the destruction of spawning grounds; possible leaks from turbine hydraulic systems create pollution and the turbines could present physical barriers to fishing vessels, as if that wasn't enough. .

Photosynthesis Transforms CO2 into Liquefiable Fuels (R&D)
University of Illinois
Date: 2019-06-21
Chemists at the University of Illinois – Chanpaign are reporting the production of fuels using water, CO2 and visible light through artificial photosynthesis. By converting CO2 into more complex molecules like propane, green energy technology is now one step closer to using excess CO2 to store solar energy in the form of chemical bonds.

There are several ways in which the energy stored in bonds of the hydrocarbon fuel is freed. However, the easy conventional method of combustion ends up producing more CO2 -- which is counterproductive to the notion of harvesting and storing solar energy in the first place, according to research tem leader Prof. Prashant Jain,

Plants use sunlight to drive chemical reactions between water and CO2 to create and store solar energy in the form of energy-dense glucose. In the new study, the researchers developed an artificial process that uses the same green light portion of the visible light spectrum used by plants during natural photosynthesis to convert CO2 and water into fuel, in conjunction with electron-rich gold nanoparticles that serve as a catalyst.

"The goal is to produce complex, liquefiable hydrocarbons from excess CO2 and other sustainable resources such as sunlight. Liquid fuels are ideal because they are easier, safer and more economical to transport than gas and, because they are made from long-chain molecules, contain more bonds and pack energy more densely," according to Jain.

The research was supported by The Energy and Biosciences Institute, through the EBI-Shell program.

Date: 2019-06-12
In the Bay State, the City of Melrose (pop. 28,367) reports it has rebooted the Community Energy Aggregation (CEA) program which is intended to provide price stability for National Grid customers in Melrose and to increase the percentage of renewable energy used by Melrose residents and businesses.

The CEA program, which was created under Massachusetts General Law, allows a municipality to arrange for electricity supply on behalf of consumers in a city or town. Melrose launched its first CEA program in January 2016 but the program was discontinued in June 2017 after an analysis of available supplier rates determined it was in the best interests of Melrose residents to terminate the program . Melrose residents who did not opt out will be enrolled in the Melrose Local Green option which provides customers with 5 pct more renewable energy at a slightly lower cost than current National Grid rates. The Melrose CEA Program supplier is Next Era Energy Services.

Schneider Electric eyeing Greece’s EUR 1.5 billion smart meter project
Schneider Electric
Date: 2019-06-04
Schneider Electric has contacted the Hellenic Electricity Distribution Network Operator (HEDNO) to express interest in the replacement of around 7.5 million conventional electricity meters with smart meters, The project to replace conventional electricity meters with smart meters, implemented by HEDNO, whose Greek acronym is DEDDIE, is worth €1.5 billion, the portal wrote. Schneider Electric, which is already cooperating with HEDNO on other projects, is now waiting for the Greek power grid operator to announce the details regarding tendering for the smart meter project, in which it will be participating, according to the report. According to the report, the scenarios on the table include the implementation of the project via private funds, through a public-private partnership (PPP), and by a strategic investor. The most likely scenario, presented in late April to the board of Public Power Corporation (PPC), envisages the creation of a subsidiary to which the existing analog meters will be passed on, and then the entry into that entity of a strategic investor with a 49% stake so as to ensure the financing of the project, the portal wrote.

Replacing the analog meters with digital ones will allow for the management of energy both by the grid operator and by consumers, while efficiently dealing with the problem of electricity theft for good, according to the report.

Schneider Electric recently installed an energy management system in the network of Italian power company Enel, which has led to savings of some 30%, the report adds. (Source: Schneider Electric, Balkan Green Energy News, 4 June, 2019)
