Renewable power could make hydrogen cheaper than gas, study finds

A pioneering power plant in northeast Germany that converts renewable energy into hydrogen could be a common sight in the near future.

Hydrogen prices are set to fall dramatically if enough surplus solar and wind energy can be utilised in the gas’s production, according to a new study which says hydrogen could even become cheaper than natural gas.

A major dilemma for European electricity providers and grid operators is how best to integrate intermittent renewables into the current system. Clean power often goes to waste because of inflexibility and insufficient storage options.

Electricity interconnectors are expensive projects that often have a political dimension to them and battery technologies are still not at a point where they can be rolled out on a large scale. Continue reading “Renewable power could make hydrogen cheaper than gas, study finds”

The green economy is a new economic paradigm which seeks to achieve economic development, while at the same time protecting the environment and achieving sustainable economic and social development. This requires transitioning to green jobs and green skills, and to creating new jobs in relation to the greening of workforces. Green jobs are relevant across all key sectors: agriculture, manufacturing, building, transport, tourism, and renewable energy. Skills acquisition and enhancement have great positive implications for all aspects of education and training, and for businesses.

Renewable Energy Doesn’t Get More In Subsidies Than Fossil & Nuclear Energy Have Gotten and Continue To Get

January 26th, 2018 by 


This article is part of our “CleanTechnica Answer Box” collection. For some reason, there are certain anti-cleantech talking points that get thrown around over and over that are absolute bunk. We got tired of dealing with the same myths repeatedly and also saw others who spent time responding to these untruths in many discussions on CleanTechnica and elsewhere could use some help more efficiently and effectively doing so, so at the suggestion of a reader we created this resource in the same vein as Skeptical Science’s responses to global warming & climate change myths.


Myth: renewable energy gets subsidies whereas fossil fuels and nuclear energy don’t. Continue reading “Renewable Energy Doesn’t Get More In Subsidies Than Fossil & Nuclear Energy Have Gotten and Continue To Get”

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. Continue reading “Bac Lieu has high hopes for renewable energy”

12 Charts That Shook the Earth in 2017: trends in the global energy transformation

1. Here comes storage

Toward the end of last year, Tesla installed the largest lithium-ion battery ever deployed in South Australia. It was a high-profile example of a powerful trend: storage combinations that are starting to compete with natural-gas power plants.

According to a GTM Research analysis of South Australia’s electricity market, by 2025, solar-plus-storage and standalone batteries will compete with new and existing open-cycle gas turbines for meeting peak load. By 2035, renewables and storage will beat gas for baseload and peak power. Continue reading “12 Charts That Shook the Earth in 2017: trends in the global energy transformation”

Thai renewables developer Wind Energy Holdings Co. Ltd (WEH) has raised US$1.1 billion to finance five new onshore wind farms in what is billed as Southeast Asia’s biggest wind energy project yet.Located in Thailand’s northeastern provinces of Nakhon Ratchasima and Chaiyaphum, the wind farms will add up to 450 megawatts of energy to the national grid on completion, slated for early 2019.Towering at a height of 157 metres, the wind farms will boast the tallest towers in the region, and will use the latest technology supplied by Vestas and General Electric. Siam Commercial Bank is financing the project. Continue reading “Southeast Asia’s largest wind project gets $1.1 billion funding injection”
