#RenewableEnergy Outlook for #ASEAN showcasing Technological and Sectorial Renewable Energy deployment options #SoutheastAsia

Southeast Asia is growing fast — its population is expected to grow from around 615 million in 2014 to over 715 million by 2025, and its economies at a rate of five per cent per year. All of this growth is expected to fuel a four per cent annual growth in energy demand, raising the region’s share to over 7.5 per cent of the world’s total.

To meet this growing energy demand in a sustainable manner, last October, the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) set an aspirational target of supplying 23 per cent of its total primary energy from modern renewable sources by 2025. With its current set of policies, the region is on path to only reach a 17 per cent share by that time — six percentage points short of the target.

Analysis of a Hybrid Solar-Assisted Trigeneration System #SolarPower #NaturalGas #ThermalPower #EnergyStorage

Authors: Elisa Marrasso, Carlo Roselli, Maurizio Sasso and Francesco Tariello

Journal Title: Energies

Publisher: MDPI AG

A hybrid solar-assisted trigeneration system is analyzed in this paper. The system is composed of a 20 m2 solar field of evacuated tube collectors, a natural gas fired micro combined heat and power system delivering 12.5 kW of thermal power, an absorption heat pump (AHP) with a nominal cooling power of 17.6 kW, two storage tanks (hot and cold) and an electric auxiliary heater (AH). The plant satisfies the energy demand of an office building located in Naples (Southern Italy). The electric energy of the cogenerator is used to meet the load and auxiliaries electric demand; the interactions with the grid are considered in cases of excess or over requests. This hybrid solution is interesting for buildings located in cities or historical centers with limited usable roof surface to install a conventional solar heating and cooling (SHC) system able to achieve high solar fraction (SF). The results of dynamic simulation show that a tilt angle of 30° maximizes the SF of the system on annual basis achieving about 53.5%. The influence on the performance of proposed system of the hot water storage tank (HST) characteristics (volume, insulation) is also studied. It is highlighted that the SF improves when better insulated and bigger HSTs are considered. A maximum SF of about 58.2% is obtained with a 2000 L storage, whereas the lower thermal losses take place with a better insulated 1000 L tank.

#FinancialModeling Software for #Sustainable #InfrastructureProjects could boost #Investment in #RenewableEnergy

An MIT spinout, EverVest, has built a data-analytics platform whose goal is to give investors rapid, accurate cash-flow models and financial risk analyses for renewable-energy projects. Recently acquired by asset-management firm Ultra Capital, EverVest’s platform could help boost investments in sustainable-infrastructure projects, including wind and solar power.

Ultra Capital acquired the EverVest platform and team earlier this year in order to leverage the software for its own underwriting and risk analytics. The acquisition by Ultra will enable the EverVest software to expand to a broader array of sustainable infrastructure sectors, including water, energy, waste, and agriculture projects.

15 September 2016 - MIT News - For investors, deciding whether to invest money into renewable-energy projects can be difficult. The issue is volatility: Wind-powered energy production, for instance, changes annually — and even weekly or daily — which creates uncertainty and investment risks. With limited options to accurately quantify that volatility, today’s investors tend to act conservatively. An MIT spinout, EverVest, has built a data-analyti...

Did you know renewable energy storage is Africa's holy grail?

Renewable energy is constantly in the news and being spoken about on social media. Any time I put out a blog on solar energy I am added to countless renewable energy lists on Twitter, as people strive to promote sustainable energy and/or their renewable companies or organisations. The problem with renewable energy is that it’s storage is limited. The technology to store energy is yet to catch up with renewable capability. Storing energy is important because we need to meet the peak demand for energy, which is often after the sun has gone down.

To read about Morocco's huge concentrated solar power station, Tesla's power station and LiGE from South Africa innovative storage solution, see https://inventiveafrica.net/2016/09/07/renewable-energy-storage-is-africas-holy-grail/

Nothing clean about 30% renewables! Not when it's 40% natural gas from fracking, a couple of percent of which leaked unburned, therefore worse than coal for greenhouse emissions.

We can do far better with innovative MSR Nuclear, Wind and Solar! (It's true that LWR nuclear has been too expensive and slow to deploy due to over-regulation to be relevant in shutting down combustion power.)

One more reason to end fossil fuel use! If we go to nuclear and renewable power we will save about 3,000,000 lives per year, if the World Health Org's estimates of deaths from air pollution is right. And reduce the Alzheimer's burden too! It is hard to imagine accidents with nuclear and renewable power that wouild kill millions of people every year!

EVs Will Reduce US Gasoline Demand by 300,000 Barrels per Day by 2035:

By 2035, Wood Mackenzie estimates that electric vehicles will account for 12 percent of new-car sales in the U.S., which represents 16 million vehicles. This base-case scenario would mean a reduction of gasoline demand by 350,000 barrels per day, a 5 percent reduction of today’s consumption.

World #RenewableEnergy Investment in 2015 was USD 313 billion, establishing #Renewables as the largest source of Power Investment

With energy supply spending of USD 315 billion, China was once again the world’s largest energy investor last year thanks to robust efforts in building up low-carbon generation and electricity networks, as well as implementing energy efficiency policies.

Investment in the United States’ energy supply declined to about USD 280 billion in 2015, falling nearly USD 75billion, due to low oil prices and cost deflation, representing half of the total decline in global energy spending. The Middle East and Russia emerged as the most resilient regions to spending cuts, thanks respectively to lower production costs and currency movements. As a result, national oil companies accounted for 44 percent of overall upstream investments, an all-time high.

Renewable energy investments of USD 313 billion accounted for nearly a fifth of total energy spending last year, establishing renewables as the largest source of power investment. While spending on renewable power capacity was flat between 2011 and 2015, electricity generation from the new capacity rose by one third, reflecting the steep cost declines in wind turbines and solar PV. The investment in renewable power capacity in 2015 generates more than enough to cover global electricity demand growth.

#RandD #Innovation and Transparency to make Power Affordable for every Citizen of #India Says Minister

Sighting the important role of transparency in making the power sector efficient, Shri Goyal said that today information regarding each and every facet of the sector is on the fingertips of the people, whether it is e-auctions of the coal blocks, efficient price discovery through competitive bidding or giving data about power prices through Vidyut Pravah App. The Minister said that the private sector is intelligent enough to discover the economically viable price and the Government does not believe in interfering in this process. He cited the success in the solar power sector where the prices of solar panels have come down by 40%. The wind power sector is soon to follow this path, Shri Goyal added.

Highlighting the importance of international collaborations in research and development, technology transfers, the Minister said that the Government is in the process of talks with leading nations in the field of clean energy and take the cooperation forward. During the interaction, Shri Goyal also invited new ideas and innovations from the bright young minds in India in order to make ‘Affordable Power available to All’.
