Coastal Virginia Offshore Wind Pilot Completed (Ind. Report)
Dominion Energy, Orsted
Date: 2020-07-01
The Richmond-based utility Dominion Energy and its partner Orsted are reporting the installation of the second of two Siemens Gamesa 6-MW wind turbines and thus the completion of the second offshore wind facility ever built in U.S. waters -- the Coastal Virginia Offshore Wind pilot located 30 miles off Virginia Beach. When fully operational the pilot installation will generate sufficient energy for roughly 3,000 homes.

As previously reported, Dominion is planning a 2,600 MW follow-up wind farm adjacent to the pilot site project site with construction slated to get underway in 2024 (Source: Dominion Energy, PR, July, 2020) Contact: Dominion Energy Virginia, Keith Windle, VP Business Development and Merchant Operations, www.dominionenergy.com; Orsted, +45 99 55 97 22, www.orsted.com

EU MEPs Call for Renewables, Energy Storage to Spur Decarbonization (Opinions, Editorials & Aside)
European Union,European Commission
Date: 2020-07-01
In Brussels, Members of the European Union Parliament (MEPs) Industry, Research and Energy Committee the Committee) have outlined their strategy for renewable energy, 'green' hydrogen, and energy storage, all of which play a crucial role in reaching the goals of the Paris Agreement on Climate change.

The Committee calls on the EC and member states to remove regulatory barriers that hamper the development of energy storage projects, such as double taxation or shortcomings in EU network codes. The Trans-European energy networks also need to be revised in order to improve eligibility criteria for those wishing to develop energy storage facilities.

MEPs also highlight the potential of hydrogen produced from renewable sources ("green hydrogen" ) and call on the EC to continue supporting research into and development of a hydrogen economy. The EC should also assess if retrofitting gas infrastructure to transport hydrogen is possible, as the use of natural gas is only of a transitional nature.

The committee also supports the EC's efforts to create European standards for batteries and to reduce dependence on their production outside of Europe. The EU's heavy dependence on importing raw materials from sources where extraction degrades the environment should be reduced through enhanced recycling schemes and by sourcing raw materials sustainably, possibly in the EU.

Finally, MEPs propose ways to boost other storage options, such as mechanical and thermal storage, as well as the development of decentralized storage through home batteries, domestic heat storage, vehicle-to-grid technology and smart home energy systems. The EC estimates that the EU will need to be able to store six times more energy than today to achieve net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.

According to lead MEP Claudia Gamon, "Energy storage will be essential for the transition to a decarbonized economy based on renewable energy sources. As electricity generated by wind or solar energy will not always be available in the quantities needed, we will need to store energy. Apart from storage technologies that we already know work well like pumped hydro storage, a number of technologies will play a crucial role in the future, such as new battery technologies, thermal storage or "green" hydrogen. These must be given market access to ensure a constant energy supply for European citizens." (Source: European Union News, European Commission PR, 30 June, 2020)

TEP Touts Clean Energy Expansion Plan (Ind. Report)
Tucson Electric Power
Date: 2020-06-29
Tucson Electric Power (TEP) is reporting plans to provide more than 70 pct of its power from wind and solar resources as part of a cleaner energy portfolio that will reduce carbon emissions 80 pct by 2035.

The 15-year 2020 Integrated Resource Plan (IRP) calls for a dramatic expansion of wind and solar power resources, supported by efficient natural gas fired generators and energy storage systems the retirement of TEP's remaining coal-fired power plants over the next 12 years. Key IRP elements include:

  • 2,457 MW of new wind and solar power systems, including 457 MW that will be coming online over the next year.

  • 1,400 MW of new energy storage systems.

  • A proposal to ramp down and ultimately retire two units at the coal fired Springerville Generating Station in 2027 and 2032.

  • Eliminating the use of surface water for power generation and a 70 pc treduction in groundwater use.

  • Continued support for energy efficiency programs to reduce usage and peak power demands.

    TEP's CO2 emission reduction goal was developed in partnership with the University of Arizona's Institute of the Environment with input from a diverse group of customers, community leaders, local government representatives and environmental advocates. The target represents TEP's fair share of worldwide efforts to limit global warming to well below 2 degrees Celsius under the 2015 Paris Agreement. TEP's plan would reduce its CO2 emissions by 80 pct, according to the release.

    Xcel would also speed up the planned repowering of four older wind farms with new turbines and other new equipment at a projected cost of $1 billion to $1.4 billion. The wind farm repowering, which hed been previously scheduled for the late 2020s, would allow Xcel to take advantage of federal tax credits.

    Xcel would also be able to use federal tax credits for a 450-MW solar plant, which would cost up to $650 million and be located next to the company's coal-fired plant in Becker. Xcel had been planning to add 3,000 MW of new solar power on line 2026 through 2030 as its coal plants are shutdown.

    Xcels' push to advance its renewables projects is in response to the Minnesota PUC's call for the state's electric and gas utilities to "assist in Minnesota's economic recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic."

    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.

    Researchers at the Technical University of Denmark, DTU Bioengineering report they have identified a number of enzymes that can capture CO2 and transform it into sustainable chemicals with the use of electricity from the wind turbines. The specific enzymes can effectively convert carbon dioxide into formic acid and then into methanol.

    The DTU Bioengineering scientists contend that Denmark can become a market leader if there is a high production of the particular enzymes.

    According to the researchers, 200 tonnes of the enzyme can capture one million tpd of CO2. A new technology needs to be developed to produce enzymes on a large scale, the DTU release notes.

    Scottish Power CEO Touts Renewables -- Notable Quote

    Date: 2020-06-08
    "Renewables are now the cheapest form of energy out there -- bar none. And wind power is not only cheap, it's quick to build. So, for the first time, the economic and environmental benefits of investing in renewables are completely aligned.

    "And at today's interest rates, it's an economic no-brainer for governments and companies to invest in a long-term programme of clean generation and green infrastructure to support ... number one, the replacement of fossil fuel-burning cars and vans with electric vehicles and ... number two, a move away from gas heating.

    "These are the two big things that need to start happening at scale over the next decade or so if we're going to have any hope of meeting our Net Zero targets." -- Keith Anderson, CEO, Scottish Power, June, 2020
