Renewables are the cornerstone of global energy transition

Addressing climate change requires decarbonisation of both energy supply and demand. New analysis from IRENA finds that renewable energy, energy efficiency and electrification are at the centre of the global energy transition. Not just for emission reduction, but because of cost advantages and increasing demand.

Floating solar farms generate electricity more efficiently

The cooling effect of water beneath solar panels enables them to generate electricity up to 12.5% more efficiently than rooftop or ground-mounted installations. Meanwhile, the panels’ sheltering effect from sunlight and wind protects the water from climate change impact.

Hydrogen has a vital role in the global energy transition

Green hydrogen is produced by the electrolysis of water using renewable electricity. The global hydrogen capacity increased to 26GW in 2021. The world needs almost 1000 GW by 2050 to meet the demand forecasts. And that’s just for the green hydrogen which will be 75% of global production by 2050.

Batteries are crucial for the climate plan of Joe Biden

Joe Biden’s dream is to have a green electric grid by 2035, with batteries backing up vast fields of solar panels and wind turbines and other carbon-free wind sources. It will only be possible to switch to carbon-free cars and power grids if there’s a huge expansion in storage capacity for electricity.

The top 10 geothermal countries of 2020

The geothermal power generation capacity around the world was 15,608 MW in 2020. In comparison to 2019, only 202 MW was added. This limited growth was due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The United States, Indonesia and the Philippines are the top 3 geothermal energy producers.
