Beijing, China, 21 October 2019 – Asia could grow its share of installed capacity for onshore wind from 230 Gigawatt (GW) in 2018 to over 2600 GW by 2050, a new report by the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) finds. By that time, the region would become a global leader in wind, accounting for more than 50 per cent of all onshore and over 60 per cent of all offshore wind capacity installed globally.

It’s decision time for Southeast Asia as power demand soars

Still stuck on coal, the region is missing out on massive price cuts in renewables, writes Courtney Weatherby.
Southeast Asia’s energy demand is expected to grow by two-thirds by 2040, requiring massive investment in new energy generation and transmission. Installed capacity will double from 240 gigawatts to 565 gigawatts, which amounts to adding a bit more than Japan’s total electricity capacity.

Coal assets stranded in Southeast Asia

Coal is now more expensive than renewable energy – and while this is good news for the climate, it’s bad news for developing countries who have invested in coal. Renato Redentor Constantino looks at how Japan and Korea are divesting, and the IMF’s opinion on stranded assets.

Countries in Southeast Asia who have invested in coal are finding themselves high and dry.

Because of competition from renewable energy, the Philippines is facing at least $21 billion in stranded coal plant assets, representing all new proposals in the pipeline. The figure represents over a fourth of the country’s national budget.

In Indonesia, 133 trillion Indonesian Rupiah is projected to be spent in 2021 to subsidize its thermal coal sector expansion, but the allocation can only delay, not prevent, what is taking place globally. Tiếp tục đọc “Coal assets stranded in Southeast Asia”

Governments and Philanthropies Announce South East Asia Energy Transition Partnership

Today the Government of Canada’s Department of Environment and Climate Change, the French Development Agency (AFD), Germany’s Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU), the United Kingdom’s Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS), and global philanthropies announced the beginning of a new collaboration at the One Planet Summit in New York to accelerate the energy transition in partnership with countries in South East Asia.

South East Asian countries can ensure continued economic growth and prosperity, keep pace with the related growth in energy demand, and meet their Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) toward the Paris Agreement. The fall in the cost of renewable energy, the untapped renewable energy potential in South East Asia, and the lessons learned from increasing renewable energy penetration globally presents an opportunity for South East Asian countries to accelerate the energy transition and meet their Paris commitments.

Chuyển đổi từ than đá sang năng lượng tái tạo: nước Đức có bài học cho cả thế giới

English:  Germany’s transition from coal to renewable energy offers lessons to the rest of the world

Sự chuyển đổi kéo dài hàng thập kỷ từ công nghiệp dựa vào năng lượng hóa thạch sang năng lượng sạch của nước Đức mang đến cả cơ hội và thách thức

Intro image

Ông Heinz Spahn, 77 tuổi có đôi mắt mày xanh lam lấp lánh và nghiêm khắc – hồi tưởng lại những năm tháng tuổi trẻ của ông. Mỏ than Zollverein, nơi ông đã từng làm việc ở vùng Essen, Đức, bám đầy bụi than, ông nhớ lại, rằng ở đó, mỗi lần có người di chuyển là sẽ khuấy lên một đám mây đen. ‘Đó không phải là một trang trại nuôi ngựa’- Ông dùng thành ngữ mỉa mai tiếng Đức để mô tả điều kiện khắc nghiệt ở mỏ than: Tiếng gầm của máy móc lúc nào cũng ở mức 110 decibel, và những người đàn ông ở đó có biệt danh là waschbar, hoặc, ‘con chồn’ do mặt họ lúc nào cũng được trang trí bởi những vết nhọ đen.

Ngày nay, khung cảnh của Zollverein đã rất khác. Bên trong khu rửa than nơi mà ông Spahn từng làm việc – trong tòa nhà lớn nhất khu tổ hợp mỏ Zollverein – không khí rất sạch và khoảng 8000 thợ mỏ được thay thế bằng 1.5 triệu du khách mỗi năm. Toàn bộ khu tổ hợp hiện nay đã trở thành di sản thế giới được UNESCO công nhận: Spahn, người đã từng là thợ hàn nhiệt ở đây cho đến khi mỏ than bị đóng cửa vào 23/12/1986, đã trở thành hướng dẫn viên giới thiệu cho khách du lịch biết về lịch sử nơi này. ‘Tôi biết rõ cả trong và ngoài tòa nhà này. Tôi biết rõ mọi cái ốc vít.’ Ông nói một cách trìu mến. Tiếp tục đọc “Chuyển đổi từ than đá sang năng lượng tái tạo: nước Đức có bài học cho cả thế giới”

An Australian Coal Company Tries Desperately to Sell Coal to Vietnam

The invitation of an Adani Mining executive as a speaker at a “energy roundtable” in Hanoi organised by an Australian government agency is symptomatic of the desperate challenge the company faces getting its Carmichael coal project off the ground.

Adani Mining’s Senior Marketing Manager, Christine Evans, was listed by the Australian Trade Commission (Austrade) to speak on “future supply opportunities, international coal procurement practice” at the roundtable on May 22.

At this rate, it’s going to take nearly 400 years to transform the energy system


Here are the real reasons we’re not building clean energy anywhere near fast enough.

Fifteen years ago, Ken Caldeira, a senior scientist at the Carnegie Institution, calculated that the world would need to add about a nuclear power plant’s worth of clean-energy capacity every day between 2000 and 2050 to avoid catastrophic climate change. Recently, he did a quick calculation to see how we’re doing.

Not well. Instead of the roughly 1,100 megawatts of carbon-free energy per day likely needed to prevent temperatures from rising more than 2 ˚C, as the 2003 Science paper by Caldeira and his colleagues found, we are adding around 151 megawatts. That’s only enough to power roughly 125,000 homes.

At that rate, substantially transforming the energy system would take, not the next three decades, but nearly the next four centuries. In the meantime, temperatures would soar, melting ice caps, sinking cities, and unleashing devastating heat waves around the globe (see “The year climate change began to spin out of control”).

Caldeira stresses that other factors are likely to significantly shorten that time frame (in particular, electrifying heat production, which accounts for a more than half of global energy consumption, will significantly alter demand). But he says it’s clear we’re overhauling the energy system about an order of magnitude too slowly, underscoring a point that few truly appreciate: It’s not that we aren’t building clean energy fast enough to address the challenge of climate change. It’s that—even after decades of warnings, policy debates, and clean-energy campaigns—the world has barely even begun to confront the problem.

2017 Sustainable Energy Index – Energy Trilemma Index

The World Energy Council’s Energy Trilemma Index tool, produced in partnership with Oliver Wyman, ranks countries on their ability to provide sustainable energy through 3 dimensions: Energy security, Energy equity (accessibility and affordability), Environmental sustainability. The ranking measures overall performance in achieving a sustainable mix of policies and the balance score highlights how well a country manages the trade-offs of the Trilemma with “A” being the best. Use this interactive Index to assess the sustainability of national energy policies.

Explore the Pathway Calculator to determine what it takes to improve your ranking and understand the impact of policymaking in achieving a sustainable energy future.

Bac Lieu has high hopes for renewable energy

Last update 07:50 | 15/01/2018
VietNamNet Bridge – Soon after the Prime Minister agreed to Bac Lieu province’s proposal to cancel the Cai Cung thermopower project, investors visited the area to seek opportunities to develop renewable power projects.

Vietnam wants to develop ‘clean power’

Duong Thanh Trung, chair of Bac Lieu‘s People’s Committee, in late 2017 confirmed that the PM had agreed to remove Cai Cung project from the electricity development program. This will pave the way for the province to step up the development of renewable energy.

He revealed that many investors had come to Bac Lieu, promising investment capital of VND100 trillion for green energy. Tiếp tục đọc “Bac Lieu has high hopes for renewable energy”
