  • USA : Walmart in New On-Site Solar Plans
    December 02, 2014
    American retail giant Walmart has revealed plans to install up to 400 new solar projects at facilities across the US over the next four years as part of its global commitment to drive the production or procurement of 7 TWh of energy from renewable sources by the end of 2020 and its goal to be supplied by 100% renewable energy.

    The company has already installed approximately 260 solar projects to date in the US with a combined capacity of 105 MW, saving more than US$5 million in energy expenses, it says.

  • United Kingdom(Great Britain) : Bluegen FC CHP Installed at Napier University
    December 02, 2014
    Scotland's Edinburgh Napier University's property and facilities department has commissioned the installation of a BlueGen fuel cell combined heat and power unit running on natural gas.

    Jon Cape, managing director of iPower, explains: 'The capital cost of supply and installation is met by iPower. The site-owner - the University in this case - pays for gas consumed by the unit and for servicing and enjoys free use of all electricity and heat generated, giving rise to substantial net savings to the site owner.'

  • United Kingdom(Great Britain) : Veolia Delivers CHP for New Cross Hospital
    December 02, 2014
    Environmental services provider Veolia has been contracted to deliver a new 2 MW combined heat and power plant (CHP) to the 700-bed New Cross Hospital in Wolverhampton, UK. Installed by Veolia's packaged CHP team, Cogenco, it will be the hospital's first onsite CHP system, comprising of a 2 MWe CHP engine as well as 1183 kWe low temperature hot water (LTHW) and 1500 kg/hour steam units.

    The gas-fired plant will cover approximately 40% of the hospital's entire heating and water requirements and 75% of its electrical demand and CO2 savings of over 3000 tonnes per year, its developers say.

  • Finland : District Heating Network Goes Geothermal
    December 02, 2014
    The district heating network serving the Finnish city of Espoo is soon to be powered by geothermal energy, two firms have announced.

    Energy companies Fortum and St1 say they are to collaborate on building Finland's first industrial-scale geothermal heat plant, a pilot project which is expected to come online in 2016 and will supply heat to Fortum for use in the heat network.

    The plant will have an output of up to 40 MW, which will cover around 10% of Espoo's district heating needs. In addition, the companies say the plant will be emissions-free.

  • India : 3 MW Biomass Power Plant Commissioned in India
    November 28, 2014
    Global healthcare company, Merck, has commissioned a cogeneration plant at its production site in Goa, India.

    The 3 MW biomass plant was developed as part of a company-wide climate protection programme, and will generate electricity and steam for the pharmaceutical and chemical production operations in Goa. The cogeneration unit uses shells of cashews and coconuts, two crops that are farmed in the region, as biomass fuel to generate power while reducing CO2 emissions by around 11,500t.

  • United Kingdom(Great Britain) : Planning Starts for 700,000 TPA Waste to Energy CHP Project in London
    November 24, 2014
    North London Waste Authority (NLWA) is to begin planning and consultation work on the £500 million North London Heat and Power Project - a waste to energy combined heat and power plant able to treat up to 700,000 tonnes per year of residual waste.

    The NLWA explained that the new high efficiency CHP plant will replace the existing energy from waste plant at the EcoPark which has served north London for around 45 years, but is coming to the end of its operational life.

    The project is predicted to cost between £450 and £500 million and will use residual waste left over after recycling as a fuel to generate electricity and heat for local homes and businesses.

  • Australia : Australian Broadcast Tower Goes Off Grid
    November 20, 2014
     A large broadcast tower at Muswellbrook in New South Wales, Australia, is to run entirely on off-grid solar power following the introduction of battery storage technology.

    With a 39 kWp solar power installation and a 8 kVA diesel back-up system for emergencies, the pilot project ensures solar power is captured via 216 kWh of battery storage during daylight hours, enabling 24 hour power to be supplied to the commercial site.

  • Germany : Germany Moves to Speed Renewable Energy Goal
    November 19, 2014
    Germany sought to steer its ambitious shift to renewable energy back on track after its plans to phase out nuclear power triggered an increase in carbon-gas emissions over the past two years.

    The government adopted a broad catalog of measures on Wednesday, ranging from new subsidies for homeowners who insulate their houses to mandatory emissions cuts for energy producers.

    Berlin said the steps would ensure Germany meets its target of cutting carbon-dioxide emissions by 40% from their 1990 level by 2020 - a goal twice as ambitious as the European average and one that appears increasingly beyond reach.
