“Dramatic” recent gains have pushed solar’s levelised cost of electricity below US$30/MWh and will see the industry break the US$20/MWh average in a decade, BloombergNEF (BNEF) has said. New analysis from the consultancy found that utility-scale solar and onshore wind new-builds have become the cheapest option in countries home to two-thirds of the world’s population,

UK has ‘record-breaking’ year for low carbon energy

Last year saw renewables records broken across the board as renewables produced nearly 37% of the UK’s power, according to new data released by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS). In 2019, renewables generated a record breaking 36.9% of the UK’s electricity, it announced today (26 March). Of this, wind power

Why Solar-with-Storage is a Leap Forward

I heard a solar developer say that if the solar development was checkers, storage looks like three-dimensional chess, or for some, like a Swiss Army knife. Storage is complicated, and a new study of the value of energy storage explains some patterns we see in energy storage adoption and deployment. This helps explain why

UK government lifts block on new onshore windfarm subsidies

By |2020-04-06T17:21:37+00:00April 11th, 2020|Energy and Climate Change, News, Renewable Energy, Wind|

Decision comes four years after ministers scrapped support for new projects The UK has abandoned its opposition to subsidising new onshore windfarms, four years after ministers scrapped support for new projects. The government will remove a block against onshore wind projects by allowing schemes to compete for subsidies alongside solar power developments and floating

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

By |2020-03-04T08:56:22+00:00March 4th, 2020|Energy and Climate Change, News, Power Generation, Renewable Energy, Solar and Battery, Wind|

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%

4 Trends in Solar Energy for 2020
