World's Solar, Wind Generated Power Stands at 10 pct (Int'l. Report)
EMBER
Date: 2020-08-17
According to London, UK-headquartered independent climate and "coal to clean energy" think tank EMBER's recently released Global Electricity Review 2020, power generation from wind turbines and solar panels generated 10 pct of the world's electricity in the first half of this year as coal-powered generation declined to the lowest half-year level since at least 1990.

During the same period, coal-fired generation dropped by 8.3 pct but still accounted for 33 pct of global production -- too high to meet global climate change targets of keeping global temperatures from increasing by more than 2.7 F which, the report claims, needs coal power generation to fall by 13 pct per year for a decade, according to the report.

The EMBER -- fka "Sandbag" -- report collected data from 48 countries which make up 83 pct of global electricity production. Download the Global Electricity Review 2020 report HERE. (Source: Ember, Aug., 2020) Contact: Ember, (+44) 020 8144 8663, ember-climate.org

Offshore Wind Notable Quote from GWEC
Global Wind Energy Council
Date: 2020-08-10
"As the (offshore wind) market continues to grow, industry innovations such as floating offshore wind power, larger and more efficient turbines, as well as solutions Power-to-X will continue to open new doors and markets for the sector and place the marine industry in an increasingly important position to drive the global energy transition." -- Feng Zhao, Strategy Director, Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC), Aug., 2020

The world market for offshore wind farm energy has jumped by 24 pct every year since 2013. 29.1 GW are generated in the world and the forecast is that in 2030 we will achieve 234 GW offshore wind turbines, according to the GWEC.

GWEC anticipates that by 2030 more than 205 GW of offshore wind power capacity will be added globally, including at least 6.2 GW of floating offshore wind turbines, according to the GWEC World Report. (Source: GWEC, PR, 9 Aug., 2020) Contact: Global Wind Energy Council, www.gwec.net

China Powering Global Offshore Wind Energy Growth (Int'l Report)
Global Wind Energy Council
Date: 2020-08-07
According a new industry report from the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC), the world's offshore wind farm capacity could grow to 234GW by 2030 powered by a clean energy surge led by China where 2.4 GW of offshore wind power capacity came on stream in 2019.

The report also noted 75 pct of the world's offshore wind farms are in European waters but by the end of the decade China is expected to host more than a fifth of the world's offshore wind turbines, equating to 52GW.

The report notes the offshore wind industry could create 900,000 jobs globally over the next decade and that every 1GW of offshore wind helped to avoid 3.5 million tonnes of CO2 from entering the atmosphere .

Biden Takes a Stand on Climate Change (Opinions, Editorials & Asides)
Climate Change
Date: 2020-07-31
The 2020 US Democratic presidential presumptive candidate Joe Biden's campaign has released the following position on clean energy and climate change:

  • Democrats commit to eliminating carbon pollution from power plants by 2035.

  • Wind and solar energy will be increased dramatically through the installation of 500 million solar panels and 60,000 made-in-America wind turbines.

  • Any clean energy infrastructure financed with federal support "through the tax code" should include robust wage and labor requirements.

  • Fossil fuel subsidies will be repealed.

  • California's primacy in Clean Air Act regulation of cars and trucks will be recognized and protected.

  • Oil and gas methane pollution will be reduced by the application of "robust" federal standards and targeted support for repairing and replacing aging distribution systems.

  • By 2030, all new buildings will achieve the goal of net-zero greenhouse gas emissions. Within five years, the Democrats will "incentivize" tens of billions of dollars in private-sector investments to retrofit the energy efficiency of four million buildings.

  • The country's entire fleet of school buses will transition to zero-emission buses to reduce harmful air pollution within five years.

  • The US will rejoin the the Paris Climate Agreement. A new Executive Order should be issued on climate and environmental Justice. There will be a strong emphasis on building environmental justice governmental institutions and practices. An environmental justice fund will be created to make "historic investments" in low-income communities, and remediating Superfund and other contaminated sites will address other issues afflicting these communities. Democrats will employ screening and mapping tools to ensure racial and socio-economic equity in federal climate, energy and infrastructure programs.

  • Fossil fuel companies will be held accountable for cleaning up abandoned mine lands ,oil and gas wells and industrial facilities so they can be safely "repurposed," especially in the coal country.

  • Innovative technologies will be advanced that create cost-effective pathways for industries to decarbonize, including carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) and "advanced nuclear" that eliminates risks associated with conventional nuclear technology.

  • America's natural carbon sinks on public lands will be increased by ensuring 30 percent of our lands and waters are conserved by 2030.

  • A new "climate test" will be applied to ensure that all major domestic and international infrastructure projects that require federal approval will avoid or minimize climate impacts, including impacts from export terminals.

  • The Federal Government should be reorganized by transforming the CEQ into a Council on Climate Change; establish a new office of Environmental Justice within the Department of Justice; create an Office of Climate Mobilization in the White House; establish a White House Council on frontline Environmental Justice where community and national leaders would inform the design and execution of climate change laws, policies and programs.

    DTU Increases Biomass Biofuel Production (New Prod. & Tech)
    DTU
    Date: 2020-07-10
    In a recent Technical University of Denmark (DTU) synfuel research project, researchers succeeded in combining two known technologies -- thermal gasification of biomass and electrolysis that is utilized for the production of biofuel -- can produce more biofuel from the same amount of biomass, according to a DTU release.

    An electrolysis cell (solid oxide electrolysis cell, SOEC) developed jointly by DTU and Haldor Topsoe is used for electrolysis. In an SOEC, electricity from e.g. wind turbines is used to split water into its two constituents -- oxygen and hydrogen. The oxygen can be utilized in a thermal gasification process, where a biomass such as straw is broken down at high temperature. This creates synthesis gas -- a mixture of mainly hydrogen, carbon dioxide, and carbon monoxide. The gas mixture can be used in the production of methanol when the hydrogen produced by the electrolysis is added. Methanol can be used directly as fuel or catalytically upgraded to more familiar fuels used in ships and aircraft.

    "In Synfuel, we have improved the two in technologies in several areas, and we've demonstrated that we can achieve higher utilization rates by combining the two technologies than when they run separately. We derive far more biofuel from the biomass resources and at the same time we can use surplus power from e.g. wind turbines to make fuel for heavy transport," says Professor Peter Vang Hendriksen, Synfuel project manager and Head of Section at DTU Energy.

    The Synfuel project was supported by Innovation Fund Denmark. Haldor Topsoe, Orsted, Energinet.dk, MIT, Aalborg University, Chalmers University of Technology, INSA Lyon, TU Berlin, the Chinese Academy of Sciences, and others participated in the project.

    DTU IDs CO2 Capturing Enzymes (Int'l. R&D, New Tech & Prod.)
    Technical University of Denmark,
    Date: 2020-06-08
    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.
