New UK Gov. Confirms Offshore Wind Commitment (Int'l. Report)
UK Renewable Energy
Date: 2019-12-30
In London, the newly elected majority Conservative government of Prime Minister Boris Johnson has confirmed its election manifesto pledge to "enable new floating turbines" and increase the country's new offshore wind capacity from 30GW to 40GW by 2030.

The Johnson government's commitment to wind energy is part of its effort to achieve net-zero carbon emissions by 2050.

The government also confirmed its planned £800 million investment in a carbon capture storage (CCS) cluster by the mid-2020s. A further £500 million will also be provided to help energy-intensive industries move to low-carbon techniques and a low-carbon economy. (Source: BBC, Various Media,Dec., 2019)

UK REA Touts Biomass Energy Statistics (Int'l Report)
UK Renewable Energy Association
Date: 2019-03-27
According to the UK Renewable Energy Association (REA), the UK's biomass energy output matches that of 4 Sizewell B Nuclear power stations and eliminates CO2 emissions equivalent to removing 1.3 million cars of UK roads. REA also expects the sector will offset £21 billion in fossil fuels and support approximately 46,000 jobs.

Supported by that data, REA is asking UK ministers to complete policy and regulations surrounding biomass, and renew long-term plans for the sector, whilst also supporting biomass projects.

REA notes biomass energy provides 96 pct of the UK's non-domestic renewable heating, and 7.4 pct of the country's total energy.

Amazon UK Fulfillment Centers Switching to Solar (Int'l)
Amazon
Date: 2018-10-17
Amazon reports it is set to install 20 MW of solar panels at its fulfillment centers across the U.K. The panels are expected to "generate the equivalent amount of electricity required to power over 4,500 U.K. homes." and cut the company's carbon footprint by 6,000 tpy of carbon dioxide.

The company plans to deploy large scale rooftop solar systems at 10 of its U.K. fulfillment centers over the next 18 months. This solar generated electricity will be backed by UK Renewable Energy Guarantee of Origin certificates, which means that the energy bought for fulfillment centers and other buildings will have come from sources such as wind and solar.
