ScottishPower seeks to challenge greenwashing with new 100% renewable tariff

By |2020-03-16T16:59:39+00:00March 18th, 2020|Energy and Climate Change, News, Power Generation, Renewable Energy, Wind|

ScottishPower has announced from today all new domestic fixed price tariffs will use 100% renewable energy that will be sourced entirely from its own wind farms. This will mean that all of the power generated by the company’s wind farms will be used exclusively by its domestic and commercial customers. Money made from the

Emissions flatline in 2019 thanks to surge in clean energy

Emissions flatlined in 2019 thanks to advances in clean energy, according to new research by the International Energy Agency (IEA). For the second year, emissions were 33 gigatonnes, despite a growth in the world economy of 2.9%. Globally emissions declined by some 170 million tonnes (Mt) in the power sector, or 1.2%, bringing many

‘Historic moment’ as zero carbon sources produce more power than fossil fuels in 2019

By |2020-01-13T17:28:10+00:00January 15th, 2020|Energy and Climate Change, News, Power Generation, Renewable Energy, Solar, Solar and Battery, Wind|

National Grid has announced that for the first time, zero carbon power generation outstripped fossil fuels in Britain in 2019. Throughout the twelve months of last year, 48.5% of the country’s power came from zero carbon sources, including wind farms, solar and nuclear energy, alongside energy imported by subsea interconnectors. Throughout the same period, 43%

There is now enough installed solar energy capacity in the U.S. to power 13.5 million homes, and this amount is expected to double in the next five years. The solar energy industry is part of a very dynamic market. Many factors — including government policies, fossil fuel costs, solar energy technology advances, commodity prices,

Batteries Will Change the Energy Industry Forever

By |2020-01-06T17:50:26+00:00January 7th, 2020|Battery Storage, Energy and Climate Change, News, Opinion, Renewable Energy, Solar, Solar and Battery, Wind|

Energy storage is no longer an asset class that utilities can ignore. One of the biggest criticisms of renewable energy has been its inherently intermittent nature. Solar energy plants don't produce power at night, and wind turbines don't produce power without wind, so utilities need fossil-fuel or power plants to keep the grid running.

GE2019: Inside The Green Party’s Green New Deal

By |2019-11-29T18:22:45+00:00November 26th, 2019|Energy and Climate Change, News, Power Generation, Renewable Energy, Solar, Solar and Battery, Wind|

The Green Party today launched its manifesto for the 12 December election, which hinges on its Green New Deal. This builds on the party’s previous pledges to reduce emissions, making the UK carbon neutral by 2030 and invest £100 billion a year for the next decade in climate action. This will form the basis

Solar power and the ‘climate election’: the parties’ energy pledges so far

By |2019-11-18T13:16:06+00:00November 20th, 2019|Energy and Climate Change, News, Power Generation, Renewable Energy, Solar, Solar and Battery, Wind|

As the UK prepares for yet another election, following the dissolution of parliament in the early hours yesterday, pledges for increased solar power are notable in almost all the major party's campaigns. The Green Party has called of the country to make the election on the 12 December the climate election. Unsurprisingly therefore, they have

More than 100GW of solar, wind and storage needed to meet net zero ambitions

Solar power, along with wind and storage capacity, will have to greatly increase if the UK is to meet its net zero emissions by 2050 goal, according to analysis by Aurora Energy Research. Aurora’s research presupposes capacity increases of more than 100GW of solar and wind, rising from 33GW today to more than 140GW in

Solar ‘ready to deliver’ as Labour proposes 2030 net zero target

By |2019-10-07T16:50:20+00:00October 14th, 2019|Energy and Climate Change, News, Renewable Energy, Solar, Solar and Battery, Wind|

Solar is “ready to deliver” in the transition to a net zero future but the Labour Party is facing a “considerable challenge” in its proposed target of net zero by 2030. This week the Labour Party approved a motion to adopt a Green New Deal, under which the party has pledged to commit to pursuing

Offshore wind smashes price records in third CfD auction round

By |2019-09-30T15:36:37+00:00October 5th, 2019|Energy and Climate Change, News, Power Generation, Renewable Energy, Wind|

The UK’s offshore wind sector has smashed records for price in the government’s third Contracts for Difference auction round, with prices running as low as £39.65/MWh. The Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) this morning unveiled the hotly anticipated auction results, confirming that 6GW of new offshore wind capacity will be delivered at
