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.

DOE Awards $25Mn for Marine Energy R&D Projects (Funding)
US DOE Water Power Technologies Office
Date: 2019-01-09
U.S. DOE is reporting the selection of 12 projects that will share in $25 million in next-generation marine energy devices funding through the Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Water Power Technologies Office. The selected innovative projects will reduce capital costs and accelerate the innovation cycle by testing new concepts. Marine energy includes ocean wave power, tidal, and river/ocean current devices that convert movement of water into electricity.

Selections were made across three topic areas, outlined below. The first two aim to address fundamental scientific and engineering challenges of generating power from dynamic, low-velocity and high-density waves and currents. The third topic area is targeted to provide better information to reduce the costs and time to permit projects that include Early Stage Device Design Research, Controls and Power Take Off Design Integration and Testing, and Dissemination of Environmental Data and Analyses to Facilitate the Marine Energy Regulatory Process.

Carnegie Refocusing on Wave Energy (Int'l., Ind. Report)
Carnegie Clean Energy
Date: 2018-06-29
June 28 (Renewables Now) - In the Land Down Under, renewable energy specialist Carnegie Clean Energy Ltd reports it will sell its solar and microgrid business, Energy Made Clean (EMC), to Sydney-based investment house Tag Pacific Ltd for a 32 pct stake in the purchaser.

The planned transaction will create an ASX-listed engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) and build, own, operate (BOO) business active in the off-grid and fringe-of-grid solar, battery and microgrid markets. This enlarged entity, which will take the name of Tag's unit MPower. The new entity is expected to begin operations on July 1, 2018.

Carnegie intends to focus on commercialization of its CETO wave energy technology while maintaining ownership of the Garden Island Microgrid and its current 50 pct stake in the 10-MW Northam solar farm.
