  • Poland lawmakers back EU-sought liberalized wind energy law

    Polish lawmakers have approved a new law easing rules for the installation of onshore wind turbines, a move urged by the European Union. The law allows turbines to be built no closer than 700 meters (765 yards) from houses, less restrictive than previous rules that required turbines to be 10 times taller. The vote was 231 to 209, with two abstentions. The new law gives local residents more say over where the turbines are located and lets them share in the energy generated, but critics say the liberalization is not enough and still limits the number of potential locations and the amount of electricity that can be drawn from the wind. The government has been supporting solar with subsidized solar panels for households and plans to build a major offshore wind farm in the Baltic Sea. Brussels wants Warsaw to hit some milestones before disbursing billions of euros in pandemic recovery funds, including improving Poland's rule of law record and easing rules for disciplinary judges.

  • How floating solar panels are being used to power electric grids

    Solar farms can take up a lot of space, but there is a solution to this scarcity: floating panels. In nearly a dozen countries around the world, floating solar farms are offering a welcome alternative to ground-mounted modules, with the potential to significantly boost clean energy as the world races to reduce carbon emissions. Large solar farms can now be found on the waters of China, South Korea, Japan, Thailand, Portugal, Singapore and Switzerland. Countries including India and Indonesia are developing such projects, and the world's largest man-made lake may also feature floating solar panels to supplement local hydroelectric power. The floating solar panels use the sun's rays to generate electricity, but the water on which these farms depend also helps cool the panels, making them 15 percent more efficient than ground-based solar energy. Floating solar can complement other renewable energy sources.
    The Sirindhorn Dam in Thailand is a hydro-floating solar hybrid system that combines hydroelectric power and floating solar power to generate electricity in both sunny and cloudy days. Southeast Asian countries including China and South Korea have invested heavily in floating solar, and Europe is now its second-biggest market. As water constraints increase around the world, floating solar power may help maintain supplies and reduce the chances of harmful algal blooms. However, whether floating solar will negatively impact wildlife and water quality is unclear. The biggest barrier to adoption is cost, as floating solar systems require anchoring systems to lock them in place. Longi Green Energy Technology Co Ltd, one of the world's largest solar manufacturers, is sending panels into space to test the possibility of harnessing solar power in orbit.

  • Bank finance for cleaner energy grows, but still lags fossil fuels

    Banks will finance 81 cents of every dollar spent on fossil fuels in 2021 to finance low-carbon energy supply, but they will need to scale up their commitments to meet the world's climate goals. Energy analyst BloombergNEF pooled data from 1,142 banks to assess whether banks are aligning their funding with the real economy and the 1.5-degree target. The bank funding ratio is lower than the 90-cent-to-dollar investment ratio in global energy supply, but the latter ratio has climbed in recent years from around 0.45:1 between 2011 and 2015. Funding ratios for individual banks vary, with RBC Canada at 0.4, JPMorgan at 0.7, BNP Paribas at 1.7 and Deutsche Bank at 2.2. The report's findings differ from another study published by the environmental group last month, which said the share of bank financing devoted to renewable energy had stagnated.

  • We need all colours of hydrogen, says German finance minister

    German Finance Minister Christian Lindner has expressed support for hydrogen in all colors as EU countries discuss hydrogen's potential role in decarbonizing the economy and reducing dependence on imported fossil fuels. The debate over whether to focus on hydrogen made using renewable energy or low-carbon hydrogen made using nuclear energy has delayed negotiations on new EU renewable energy targets and threatened multibillion-euro hydrogen pipelines. France, which relies heavily on nuclear power generation, is leading a campaign to boost nuclear energy's contribution to reducing carbon dioxide emissions, while Germany and Spain say it risks undercutting efforts to expand renewable energy on a large scale. Hydrogen produced from renewable sources is preferable in the long run, but in the short term, the EU needs to create a market structure that provides a reliable supply at an affordable price, Lindner said. The issue is not only divided across Europe, but also within Germany, which opposes nuclear energy.

  • US utility turns to clean energy study

    The Tennessee Valley Authority, the largest utility in the United States, has announced a new study of opportunities for economic adoption of clean energy across the region. Along with other areas of the economy, the study will look at electricity supply to find ways to reduce the carbon pollution that fuels climate change. Environmental and renewable energy advocates are closely watching the board's shift to a majority chosen by Biden as it follows the federal utility's decision to stick with a fossil fuel -- natural gas -- to replace some of the electricity generated at the aging coal-fired Cumberland fossil plant in Tennessee. . TVA has previously replaced coal-fired units with natural gas and is considering the option again at another aging coal plant in Tennessee. Cumberland's decision was discussed only briefly on Thursday.

    Gaby Sarri-Tobar, an activist with the Center for Biodiversity's Energy Justice Project, said the new board members had a "tremendous responsibility" to build a just, 100% renewable system. Sarri-Tobar cited a winter storm on Christmas Eve last year that shut down coal and gas plants, forcing the TVA to resort to rolling blackouts. Don Moul, TVA's chief operating officer, said 6,800 megawatts of generation were lost as severe freezing conditions proved beyond the capabilities of existing heat tracing and insulation materials. Both Cumberland installations were shut down throughout the frigid conditions due to the implementation of a line freeze. Most simple-cycle and combined-cycle gas-fired power plants were affected, but most returned to operation during the cold period.

    TVA was able to bring 1,000 megawatts of power back online after the initial outage, but decided to implement a rolling outage the next day to keep its power system stable. Maggie Shober, director of research for the Southern Clean Energy Alliance, noted that meeting discussions included her organization's priorities around Christmas Eve blackouts, energy efficiency and decarbonization.

  • Vietnam to further delay rules for multi billion dollar wind power

    Vietnam may not have a legal framework to regulate offshore wind farms until next year, a delay that could deter billions of dollars in foreign investment in the industry. The World Bank Group estimates the industry could add at least $50 billion to its economy. Approval of a draft power development plan in December targeting 7 gigawatts of offshore wind capacity by 2030 has been repeatedly delayed. EU companies are pushing for rapid regulatory progress, but Vietnam is also keen to scrutinize Chinese investment for national security reasons. Some believe pilot projects can be approved quickly, even before legislation is passed, while others believe wind turbine makers are unlikely to review investment plans given Vietnam's geography and influence as a regional manufacturing powerhouse.

  • EU opens door to 'green' nuclear-derived hydrogen

    In a victory for nucleophile France, the European Commission published rules on Monday to allow some hydrogen produced in nuclear energy systems to count toward EU renewable energy targets. The rules are intended to incentivize investors and industry to switch from hydrogen production from fossil fuels to hydrogen production from renewable electricity. These include hydrogen from production facilities directly connected to new renewable generators, as well as grid-supplied hydrogen if the local power district had an average share of renewable energy above 90% last year. Facilities can also use grid electricity in areas that meet low CO2 emission limits. EU countries and lawmakers have two months to oppose the rules, or they will go into effect. A dispute between countries over nuclear hydrogen has delayed negotiations on the EU's new renewable energy targets, which were due to resume on Tuesday.

  • Norway wealth fund has sold its stakes in Adani companies

    Norway's sovereign wealth fund has sold its stakes in three Adani Group companies worth more than $200 million since the start of the year, the world's largest stock investor said on Thursday. As of the end of 2022, the $1.35 trillion fund holds stakes in Adani Total Gas, Adani Ports & Special Economic Zone and Adani Green Energy. Christopher Wright, the fund's head of ESG risk monitoring, said the fund had been monitoring Adani's handling of environmental risks for several years. Adani's seven major India-listed shares have plunged by about $110 billion after U.S. short-seller Hindenburg Research published a scathing report on Jan. 24 accusing the group of improperly using offshore tax havens and manipulating shares. Adani Group denies any wrongdoing. Managed by a unit of the central bank, the fund owns 1.3% of all listed stocks globally, with stakes in about 9,200 companies.

  • EU close to response to US green subsidy scheme

    The European Union is nearing completion of its response to a multibillion-dollar U.S. climate subsidy plan that has sparked tensions with the bloc. French Economy Minister Bruno Le Maire and his German counterpart, Robert Habeck, will travel to Washington on Monday for talks on European concerns over the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA). European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen unveiled proposals to ease state aid rules on Wednesday, but no new EU funding will be forthcoming. The plans will be debated at a summit of EU heads of state and government in Brussels on Thursday and Friday, with a final decision expected in March. The IRA provides $370 billion in subsidies for America's energy transition, including tax breaks for American-made electric vehicles and batteries.

    Europe is concerned about unfair competition and the collateral damage of companies moving out of the bloc. Harbeck said the U.S. is pushing to "reduce the cost of developing climate-friendly technologies," but the important thing is that it's friendly, fair competition.
