Empire Wind will be located 15-30 miles southeast of Long Island and will incorporate 174 wind turbines and associated substations and subsea cables. Beacon Wind, 20 miles south of Nantucket, is planned to include up to 122 wind turbines, subsea cables and a convertor station. Both projects are under review by the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM).
Equinor and BP, which were selected by NYSERDA in January 2021, will provide 1.2 MW of power capacity each from the Empire Wind 2 and Beacon Wind 1 projects. Combined with the partnership's Empire Wind 1 project, the projects will generate a total 3.3 GW of renewable power -- sufficient electricity for about 2 million New York homes.
The agreement includes developing the South Brooklyn Marine Terminal into a major staging and assembly facility for the offshore wind industry, as well as an operations and maintenance base for the project's offshore farms. The partnership will also invest in the Port of Albany, making it America's first offshore wind tower and transition piece manufacturing facility, as previously reported.

Yotta's energy storage system will be designed as a virtual-power-plant-ready installation, meaning in addition to battery charging from the solar photovoltaic (PV) system, Yotta's energy storage system provides time-of-use software control. This capability saves users money by allowing the battery to be discharged when electricity prices are high.
The California Building Energy Efficiency Standards will take effect on January 1, 2023, requiring all new commercial and multifamily construction to include solar plus energy storage, and all new residential construction to have energy-storage-ready solar PV systems. The state anticipates adding 280 MW of annual solar capacity and 400 MWh of energy storage with these requirements.
Yotta Energy recently announced a funding raise of $13 million to scale its unique, modular energy storage and microgrid technology, specifically designed to transform buildings into self-generating power plants. Led by WIND Ventures, the Series A round includes follow-on investors Doral Energy-Tech Ventures, Riverstone Ventures, and returning investors, EDP Ventures, and SWAN Impact Network. The round brings the company's total funding to $20 million. This partnership and its collaboration with Cal Solar Inc. represent significant milestones as Yotta Energy looks to move the industry forward with its innovative plug-and-play solar plus storage solution, according to the release.

Coal-fired power plant emissions rose 17 pct in 2021 after dropping 19 pct in 2020. Prior to the pandemic, U.S. electric utilities replaced hundreds of coal-fired power plants with cheaper and cleaner natural gas, wind and solar power. In 2020, electricity use fell nationwide and many utilities ran their remaining coal plants much less often, as it was often the most expensive fuel. But in 2021 natural gas prices nearly doubled and many utilities returned to coal-fired power for electricity. According to the US Energy Information Administration , coal emissions will likely fall in 2022 if natural gas prices stabilize. Electric utilities have already announced plans to withdraw at least 28 pct of their remaining coal-fired power plants by 2035, and many have been turning to renewable energy at a record pace .
The Rhodium group report also notes emissions from heavy industry, such as cement and steel, rose 3.6 pct in 2021 after falling 6.2 pct in 2020. Emissions from buildings increased by 1.9 pct in 2021 after a 7.6 pct decrease in 2020. The report ignores the rise in emissions from last year's massive West Coast wildfires which burned millions of acres of forest and released the CO2 that had been locked in burning trees.
In November, the Global Carbon Project estimated that global CO2 emissions from energy and industry rose 4.9 pct in 2021, after falling 5.4 pct in 2020. China, India and the European Union have all seen large increases, suggesting that any climate effect of the pandemic has been fleeting.

"The current tax credit expires at the end of 2022. Letting it expire would harm the U.S. economy and the environment, the data show. A significant body of research also demonstrates that the biodiesel tax credit easily passes a cost-benefit analysis, and that the environmental benefits alone from each gallon of biodiesel that replaces petrodiesel exceed two dollars a gallon, or more than double the cost of the credit," the report notes.
"Moreover, the report finds that in 2019 use of biodiesel reduced U.S. greenhouse gas emissions by nearly 18 million metric tons. The cumulative greenhouse gas emission reduction since the inception of the biodiesel tax incentive is more than 100 million metric tons. "The report authors write, 'We believe that ending the credit in 2022, when the current legislation providing for it expires, would be inadvisable and would likely devastate the market, resulting in the destruction of thousands of jobs, an increase in greenhouse gas emissions and other local air pollutants, and the undoing of much of what the previous 17 years accomplished -- namely, the establishment of a robust market for an important fuel and an essential tool for reversing climate change."
"The U.S. biodiesel and renewable diesel industry supports 65,000 U.S. jobs and more than $17 billion in economic activity each year. Every 100 million gallons of production supports 3,200 jobs and $780 million in economic opportunity. The new report estimates that expiration of the tax incentive would eliminate as many as 3,000 jobs in the biodiesel and renewable diesel industry. The total employment loss throughout the supply chain associated with production would be between 7,500 and 9,000 jobs," according the NBB.

Earlier this year, Acwa Power and the government of Uzbekistan signed PPAs for two wind power plants in the country's Bukhara and Navoi regions. The company plans to deliver a total of 2.5 GW of power into Uzbekistan's grid upon the completion of three power projects that are valued at $2.5 billion.
Acwa Power, which completed its $1.2 billion IPO this year, aims to double its renewable energy portfolio capacity to 40 GW in the next five years.
The company, which is active in 13 countries in the Middle East, Africa, Central Asia and South-east Asia, has portfolio of 64 assets with a total investment value of $66 billion and produces 42 GW of power.

According to the report, the U.S. biodiesel and renewable diesel industry supports 65,000 U.S. jobs and more than $17 billion in economic activity each year. Every 100 million gallons of production supports 3,200 jobs and $780 million in economic opportunity. The new report estimates that expiration of the tax incentive would eliminate as many as 3,000 jobs in the biodiesel and renewable diesel industry. The total employment loss throughout the supply chain associated with production would be between 7,500 and 9,000 jobs.
Moreover, the report finds that in 2019 use of biodiesel reduced U.S. greenhouse gas emissions by nearly 18 million metric tons. The cumulative greenhouse gas emission reduction since the inception of the biodiesel tax incentive is more than 100 million metric tons.

Additionally, the President also directed the federal government to orient its procurement and operations efforts in line with the following principles and goals:
"President Biden's executive order demonstrates how the United States government will lead by example to provide a strong foundation for American businesses to compete and win globally in the clean energy economy while creating well paying, union jobs at home," said the White House. "The federal government will work with utilities, developers, technology firms, financiers and others to purchase electricity produced from resources that generate no carbon emissions, including solar and wind, for all its operations by 2030," a White House statement noted.
