  • France : E.ON and Sungevity Announce Go Solar Programme
    July 31, 2015
    The state visit of France’s minister for Ecology, Sustainable Development and Energy Segolene Royal to Iceland was marked by the signing of a bilateral cooperation agreement on the development of geothermal energy. The French Geothermal Cluster GEODEEP and its sister organisation - the Iceland Geothermal Cluster Initiative, on Wednesday agreed to cooperate in creating a framework of standardized model licenses for exploring, realizing, and developing geothermal energy resources.

    This landmark agreement between the two clusters could easily serve to build a general consensus for developing geothermal projects worldwide. It will also push forward the global expansion of geothermal energy and the set up of a Global Geothermal Alliance (GGA), which will be formally launched at COP21 in Paris later this year.

  • USA : Tecogen Sells Combined Heat and Power (CHP) System to Long Island County Office Building
    July 29, 2015
    Tecogen® Inc. today announced the sale of a CM-75 combined heat and power (CHP) module for installation into a county government office complex in Long Island, NY. The unit was purchased by the installing contractor, whose schedule for on-site commissioning is planned for the fourth quarter of this year. During operation, the CHP plant will generate 75 kW of electricity and twice that amount of energy in the form of hot water to supplement the facility's heating system.

    Power generation by the CHP system will be produced at twice the efficiency of the electric power grid, resulting in proportionally lower carbon emissions and operating costs to the county.

  • United Kingdom(Great Britain) : ENER-G CHP Reduces Carbon Footprint of Manchester's Historic Town Hall and Library
    July 26, 2015
    Two of Manchester's finest public buildings are generating their own low carbon energy supply via ENER-G combined heat and power (CHP) technology. As part of the multi-million pound refurbishment of the grade two-star listed Manchester Town Hall Extension and Central Library, main contractor Laing O' Rourke worked with local CHP specialist ENER-G, NG Bailey and BDP to design, develop and supply the energy efficient system. Alan Barlow, Managing Director of ENER-G Combined Power Ltd, said: 'As a local business we are pleased to help Manchester City Council deliver on its carbon reduction programme. The units are operating at around 90% efficiency, helping to create cleaner and affordable energy for the city. This project demonstrates the suitability of CHP for retrofit projects'.

  • United Arab Emirates : Heat Pump Firm Wins Contract to Supply UK-First Solar Thermal Network
    July 26, 2015
    Glasgow-based Star Renewable Energy has won a £350,000 contract to supply heat pumps for a pioneering renewable energy scheme which will, for the first time in the UK, see solar thermal panels being used to power adistrict heating scheme.

    David Pearson, director of Star Renewable Energy, told the Sunday Herald that the demonstrator project - awarded a £1.3 million research grant from the Department of Energy and Climate Change earlier this month - would help prove that heat pumps can be used effectively with low carbon solar panels.

  • Philippines : Philippine Petroleum Group Planning Biomass Cogen Units
    July 24, 2015
    Eastern Petroleum, based on the island of Luzon in the Philippines, is reportedly planning a series of biomass-fired cogeneration plants. A subsidiary of the company is planning some Php13 billion ($28.6 million) of investments to develop three projects on the islands of Visayas and Mindanao over the next five years.

    The first, a Php4.1 billion ($9 million) 23.5 MW biomass-fired plant in Agusan del Norte, is currently under development by Caraga Renewable Energy Corp. A planned roughly 18 MW cogeneration plant in Visayas will entail an investment of about Php5 billion whilst a further Php 4 billion will be spent on a 12-14 MW facility on Mindanao.
