China leads the way as wind energy sees another year of stable growth
Global Wind Energy Council
Date: 2019-11-29
The wind power energy industry installed 51.3 gigawatts (GW) of new capacity last year, a 3.6 percent fall when compared to 2017‘s growth, the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) said Tuesday. Despite this reduction, the international trade association said that the growth of the worldwide wind energy market had “been stable” since 2014, with more than 50 GW of new capacity installed each year. Total installed capacity stood at 591 GW at the end of 2018, which represents an increase of 9.6 percent compared to the end of 2017, the GWEC added. Installed capacity relates to how much energy can be produced at maximum output, not what is currently being generated. GWEC CEO Ben Backwell said that China had led “both onshore and offshore growth,” adding that “huge growth” was expected in Asia “through the coming decade and beyond.” Breaking the figures down, the onshore sector was responsible for 46.8 GW of new capacity in 2018, while the offshore wind market added 4.49 GW. In the onshore sector, Latin America, Southeast Asia and Africa were responsible for 10 percent of new installations last year. China led the way in offshore, installing 1.8 GW, while the U.K. and Germany installed 1.3 GW and 0.9 GW, respectively.

another industry body, WindEurope, said that 12 countries in the EU had failed to install “a single wind turbine” last year. onshore wind fell by more than half in Germany last year and “collapsed in the U.K.,” stating that, in the EU, 2018 was “the worst year for new wind energy installations since 2011.” (Source: Global Wind Energy Council, reve, 26 Nov., 2019) Contact: WEC, Ben Blackwell, CEO

ScottishPower Planning Major Onshore Wind Initiative (Int'l.)
ScotlandPower,Committee on Climate Change
Date: 2019-11-27
In the UK, a recent report from the Committee on Climate Change -- the official policy advisory group for the UK government -- warns that any hope the UK has of meeting its carbon-neutral by 2050 goal will require construction of at least 1,000 MW of onshore wind capacity every year for the next three decades as well as a quadrupling of offshore wind farm construction -- an unlikely scenario since wind farm construction in the UK has plummeted 80 pct since 2015 due primarily to a lack of government support.

Even so, Glasgow-based ScottishPower Renewables, an amalgam of the 6 largest utility companies in Scotland, reports it is planning a major expansion of onshore wind projects and has identified 100 potential onshore sites in Scotland, and a few in Ireland, according to a Guardian report.

EU4Energy
Date: 2019-11-20
Reporting from Tbilisi, the EU Energy Community secretariat has announced consultations with Georgian stakeholders aimed at developing the skills and competencies needed to use a tool that calculates the energy performance of buildings.

The tool, which was developed within EU4Energy Governance project, takes into account different climatic zones, automates the calculation of insulating efficiency values for windows and walls and considers the use of renewables when issuing certificates of energy performance. These certificates include the reason they were issued, the building category, primary energy (measured energy consumption for heating in recent years), the share of energy from renewables, the energy efficiency class (A to G) and proposed measures for improving energy performance.

Previously this year, the EU4Energy Governance project developed national regulations on certifying the energy performance of buildings and a template of the energy performance certificate for Georgia. The assistance is part of EU4Energy support for the country in fulfilling its commitments under the Energy Community Treaty, following the draft Law on the Energy Performance of Buildings of Georgia developed with EU4Energy support in early 2018, the adoption of which is pending.

NRDC Questions EU Biomass Power Generation Subsidies (Int'l.)
National Resources Defense Council
Date: 2019-11-13
Burnout: EU Clean Energy Subsidies Lead to Forest Destruction, a new report from the not-for-profit National Resources Defense Council (NRDC) highlights the environmental impact of the practice of burning biomass as fuel.

For the purpose of allocating energy subsidies, the EU defines biomass as a clean energy source; however, the process of burning wood for electric power production both releases high levels of carbon emissions and contributes to the destruction of forest ecosystems. As forests act as a "carbon sink", absorbing CO2 which would otherwise be released into the atmosphere.

The report, which is based on research provided by economic policy consultancy Trinomics, covers biomass subsidies in 15 EU Member States between 2105 and 2018. Overall in 2017, the 15 Member States assessed for the report spent a total of €6.6 billion in direct subsidies for energy production using biomass. The report identifies Denmark as the highest subsidiser of biomass energy per capita followed by the UK and Germany. their renewable energy subsidies on biomass production.

According to the Burnout: EU Clean Energy Subsidies Lead to Forest Destruction report, "Burning trees for electricity is not renewable and not a viable climate solution. Critically, no EU Member State has formally ruled out burning forest biomass for electricity in the future. That can and should change before we (NRDC) publish our next assessment. In the coming years, we hope and expect that in EU countries where massive biomass industry subsidies have become entrenched, policymakers will redirect this financial support toward genuinely zero-emitting and renewable energy sources like solar and wind. Countries considering new policies and incentives to replace aging fossil fuel-based energy infrastructure, both inside and outside the European Union, must rule out incentives for burning forest biomass instead of or alongside coal."

UK ADBA Calls for Anaerobic Digestion Industry Support (Int'l.)
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.
