  • United Arab Emirates : Dubai Triples Renewable Energy Target to 15% by 2030
    January 21, 2015
    Dubai has tripled its target to increase the share of renewables to 15 per cent in its energy mix by 2030, a senior official announced here on Wednesday. The emirate has increased its 2020 target also by seven times to 7 per cent, apparently due to falling costs of solar energy, according to Saeed Mohammad Al Tayer, managing director and chief executive officer of Dewa (Dubai Water and Electricity Authority).

    The announcement gains relevance as it negates the speculation that falling oil prices in the international market will affect the growth of the renewable energy sector.

    He also announced that Dewa will release a bid for 500MW photovoltaic (PV) project in 2016 in the Independent Power Producer (IPP) model.

  • United Kingdom(Great Britain) : Construction Begins on Gateshead District Energy Scheme
    January 19, 2015
    Global engineering and design giant Parsons Brinckerhoff is to commence construction of a £l14m energy centre and heat network in Gateshead, northeast England in March. 

    The new district heating scheme will provide heat and low-cost, low-carbon energy for homes and businesses in central Gateshead and Gateshead Quayside will start in March.

    Powered by a 2 MW combined heat and power gas engine initially, the energy centre will generate enough electricity to power the equivalent of 5,000 homes, and has the capacity to be expanded to 6 MW, as the scheme grows. The electricity will be supplied directly to customers by its own dedicated cables, or "private wire".

  • China : Hong Kong Hospital Chooses Methane Power
    January 19, 2015

    The Nethersole Hospital in Tai Po, Hong Kong is to use methane gas from landfill in a green energy pilot scheme to be launched later this year. 

    The project will cost HK$13 million and entails the use of a combined heat and power system. While it produces electricity, waste heat at a temperature of 500 degrees Celsius from the generator's exhaust will go to a boiler to produce steam. Waste heat from generator cooling will also be used in a heat exchanger for hot-water supply.
