Ocean Renewables Touted as Climate Change Solution (Ind. Report)
Ocean Renewable Energy Action Coalition
Date: 2020-06-12
The attached report from the Ocean Renewable Energy Action Coalition's (OREAC) Ocean Panel has found that ocean-based renewable energy, such as offshore wind, floating solar, tidal and wave power, could meet nearly 10 pct of the global annual greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reductions needed to remain on a Paris-compliant 1.5 degrees C pathway in 2050.

The report estimates that up to 85 pct of this decarbonization potential will come from offshore wind. 1,400 GW of offshore wind would power one-tenth of global electricity demand while saving over 3 billion tpy of CO2 -- equal to taking 800 million cars off the road.

OREAC is spearheaded by Orsted and Equinor, and includes other major players in the global offshore wind industry: CWind, Global Marine Group, JERA, MHI Vestas, MingYang Smart Energy, Mainstream Renewable Power, Shell, Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy, TenneT, and GE Renewable Energy. Additional partner organisations include Global Wind Energy Council, World Resources Institute, UN Global Compact, the Chinese Wind Energy Association and Ocean Energy Systems.

Ocean Renewable Energy Action Coalition Launched (Int'l Report)
Ocean Renewable Energy Action Coalition
Date: 2020-01-15
An international Ocean Renewable Energy Action Coalition has been formed to advance sustainable deployment of ocean-based renewable energy -- offshore wind, floating solar, tidal and wave power -- and at the same time mitigate the impacts of climate change while meeting roughly 10 pct of the annual greenhouse gas emissions reductions needed by 2050 to keep global temperatures under 1.5 degreeC above pre-industrial levels, according to a report released by the High-Level Panel for a Sustainable Ocean Economy. Most of this climate change mitigation potential is expected to come from offshore wind.

The Action Coalition includes MHI Vestas, Orsted, Equinor, CWind, Global Marine Group, JERA, Shell, Mainstream Renewable Power, Siemens Gamesa, TenneT and The UK Crown Estate.

Orsted,SiemensGamesa,Macquarie Capital
Date: 2019-09-16
Denmark-based offshore wind farm developer Orsted has reportedly begun trial runs of six offshore wind turbines at the Formosa 1 offshore wind farm off the west coast of central Taiwan. Orsted is the developer of Formosa 1 and holds a 35 pct stake in the offshore wind farm. Japan-based JERA holds 32.5 pct, Australia-based Macquarie Capital has 25 pct and Taiwan-based Swancor Renewable Energy holds 7.5 pct.

Formosa 1 has a total 128MW total capacity with two 4MW offshore wind turbines already installed in the first phase in October 2016 and another 20, 6MW turbines being installed in the second phase. Orsted has so far installed 10 of the project's 20 SiemensGamesa-manufactured offshore wind turbines.

Formosa I is expected to be fully operational by the year end.
