  • USA : Virginia's Prince William County Approves New Organic Waste Processing Facility
    January 26, 2015
    The Board of County Supervisors in Prince William County, Virginia, have authorized an agreement with Freestate Farms LLC, a Northern Virginia-based agricultural services and production company, to construct and operate a facility to process yard waste, food scraps and wood waste at the county's Balls Ford Road composting facility, and to provide organics waste management services at that site and at the county's landfill.

    Raw biogas produced during the anaerobic digestion process will fuel a combined heat and power generator set to provide heat and power to the Balls Ford Road facility, with surplus renewable energy available for off-site uses, potentially including transportation fuel.

  • United Kingdom(Great Britain) : Rolls-Royce CHP Plant Goes into Operation
    January 22, 2015

    In Czech Republic a combined heat and power (CHP) plant designed to provide grid support has commenced operation.

    Based on four 20-cylinder Rolls-Royce engines, the plant generates a total of 37 MW of heat and power (including district heating) for the town of Tabor/Sezimovo Ústí roughly 100 kilometers southeast of the Prague.

    "This is the first natural gas power plant based on medium-speed gas engines in the region to go into operation supplying heat and power to the local grid. This project is an additional step forward towards a green future for our region and country," said Libor Dolezal, CEO at plant operator C-Energy.

  • 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.
