  • France : State Aid: Commission Approves French Plans to Support Combined Heat and Power Plants
    August 09, 2016
    The European Commission has found French plans to support combined heat and power plants using natural gas to be in line with EU state aid rules. The scheme will reduce CO2 emissions and improve energy efficiency, in line with EU energy and climate goals, without unduly distorting competition.

    The Commission's 2014 Guidelines on State Aid for Environmental Protection and Energy allow Member States to grant state aid for high efficiency combined heat and power plants, subject to certain conditions. These rules are aimed at meeting the EU's ambitious energy and climate targets at the least possible cost for taxpayers and without undue distortions of competition in the Single Market.

  • China : China's Coal-Fired Power Glut Grows
    August 01, 2016
    China's power producers and provinces face staggering losses due to low utilization of coal-fired plants and loopholes in bans on new projects, a recent study has found.

    In one of a series of studies on China's electricity sector, Greenpeace East Asia estimated that China could waste as much as 1.4 trillion yuan (U.S. $210 billion) in capital spending on unneeded coal-fired power projects by 2020.

    Greenpeace previously warned last November that China's environmental authorities had given approvals for some 155 new coal-fired power plants despite utilization rates that had already dropped to the lowest level in 37 years.

  • India : Capacity for Renewable Energy in India Hits 42,850 Mw; Surpasses Capacity of Hydel Projects
    June 10, 2016
    India's quest for green energy has crossed a major milestone, with renewable plants, mainly wind and solar,
    surpassing the capacity of large hydroelectricity projects, which were once the country's biggest source of electricity and regarded as "temples of modern India". The total capacity of renewable energy projects expanded to 42,850 megawatts, overtaking hydropower that stood at 42,783 mw, out of the country's total capacity of about 3 lakh mw on April 30, as per the latest assessment of the Central Electricity Authority. However, the country still depends primarily on thermal power, which has a much higher installed capacity.
