Renewable groups are demanding clarity from the European Union on its green deals. They are demanding a clear outline on the future of renewable energy in Europe.
Solar industry in the United States is set for a promising future as investor are backing new super-sized batteries. Energy hungry technology companies and fund managers are both investing into solar plus storage projects.
The government of the United Kingdom is being sued for approving the biggest gas power station in all of Europe. The move goes completely against the climate change objectives that the UK has in reaching net zero.
Research engineers at the University of Queensland claim to have made a breakthrough in solar technology by creating a flexible ‘skin’ that can use solar energy to power devices.
Using enhanced geothermal energy systems could be the answer to achieving net zero emissions. The technology provides a very low carbon energy and if used the amount of electricity to be produced is abundant. However, for all its advantages, experts warn that using such systems might increase the chance and risk of earthquakes.
China and South Korea have plans to connect their electricity grids via an ocean floor power network. The aim to create a pan Asian electric power system. The grid will be using the most up to date high voltage direct current (HVDC) technology to make it as efficient as possible.
Germany currently generates over 35 per cent of its electricity from solar and wind energy sources. To produce all this renewable energy more than 30,000 wind turbines have been constructed and roughly 1.7 million solar power installations have taken place, with installed capacities of 60 gigawatts and 46 gigawatts respectively.
Analysis on the national grid and the UKs target to reach net zero carbon by the year 2050 has discovered that around 120,000 jobs will need to be created and filled in the energy sector by 2030 and about 280,000 jobs on top of that by the year 2050.
New wind farms in Senegal and Egypt, managed by Lekela Power, are leading the way in providing a clean, reliable and secure energy source to their respective nations whilst also reducing carbon emissions.
The new technology that will be used to power the UKs most advanced and up to date frigates is to be put to the test on HMS Queen Elizabeth’s first operational deployment which is planned to happen in 2021.
