USN Produces Jet Fuel from Cellulosic Feedstocks (Ind. Report)
USN
Date: 2020-11-09
Researchers from the Naval Air Warfare Center Weapons Division (NAWCWD) in China Lake, California have developed an efficient three-step process for the conversion of cellulosic feedstocks to both a valuable chemical precursor and high-performance jet fuel blendstock. Their paper appears in the journal ChemSusChem.

In it, the team describes the synthesis of sustainable methylcyclopentadiene and dimethyldicyclopentadiene (DMDCPD) via a three-step process consisting of aldol condensation; catalytic chemoselective hydrogenation; and dehydration.

KY County Seeks Landfill Gas-to-Energy Operator (Ind. Report)
Landfill Gas
Date: 2020-01-20
In the Bluegrass State, Daviess Fiscal Court -- the Daviess county administration agency -- reports it is in negotiations with respondents to its recent RFP for methane gas capture and power production at the Daviess County Landfill.

Currently, the 20 gas wells underneath the landfill produce almost 3.9 million gpd of methane which could be significantly increased with the addition of more wells, the county notes.

In 2009, the county negotiated a 20-year contract with E.ON U.S., the corporation that operated Kentucky Utilities and Louisville Gas & Electric Co, in the hopes that they could generate $2 million over the course of the contract. Ultimately, E.ON U.S. was purchased by PPL Corp., and due to a then low market the deal fell through.

Date: 2019-11-20
In the UK, the BBC is reporting the £1.3 billion Rampion Offshore Wind Farm has applied to the Crown Estate, the royal company which owns the seabed, for permission to almost double the size of its facilities off the Sussex coast westwards towards Bognor.

If the proposed expansion is approved and completed, the Rampion wind farm could stretch over 16 miles and generate generates enough electricity to power 350,000sufficient energy for as many as 700,000 homes.

Rampion, which was developed E.ON, is two-thirds the size of the 175-turbine London Array, the largest offshore wind farm in the world. (Source: Rampion, The Argus, 18 Nov., 2019)Contact: E.ON, Michael Lewis, CEO Climate and Renewables, +49 2 11 45 79 4170, www.eon.com

European Energy Efficient Mortgage in Planning Stage (Ind. Report)
Energy Efficiency
Date: 2019-09-27
Meeting in Brussels, the European Mortgage Industry -- including 47 key lending institutions, 17 national, European and International authorities and relevant market stakeholders -- is reportedly preparing to launch an Energy Efficient Mortgages Initiative (EEMI) pilot and are mobilizing European and global mortgage markets with a view to channeling private financing to "green" the building stock in the EU and beyond.

The Energy Efficient Mortgages Action Plan (EeMAP) Initiative -- led by the European Mortgage Federation-European Covered Bond Council (EMF-ECBC), Ca' Foscari University of Venice, RICS, the Europe Regional Network of the World Green Building Council, E.ON and SAFE Goethe University Frankfurt -- aims to create an energy efficient mortgage through which home purchasers are incentivized to improve the energy efficiency of their building or acquire an already energy efficient property by way of favourable conditions linked to the mortgage.

The assumption is that energy efficiency has a risk mitigation effect for banks as a result of the impact on a borrower's ability to service his/her loan and on the value of the property, a correlation which the EeMAP Initiative will seek to substantiate.

Vestas Claims German "Lighthouse" Wind Project (Int'l Report)
E.ON, Vestas
Date: 2019-08-28
Danish global wind turbine manufacturer Vestas reports receipt of an order from German utility E.ON's Avacon Natur subsidiary for a 29 MW wind power plant at a steel production facility in Lower Saxony.

The order is a "lighthouse project" due to its location and limited space on the steel producer's premises, according to Avacon Natur. To accommodate, Vestas will develop specific transportation and installation solutions as well as engineer, procure and construct turbines, foundations, roads and crane pads for the site-specific approach. The project will generate roughly 75 GWh per year -- sufficient power for over 20,000 German households.
