Global Investment of $241.6 billion in 2016 brought 138.5 GW of New #RenewablePower Capacity #WindPower #SolarPower #biomass #WTE #geothermal #SmallHydro #MarinePower

As the cost of clean technology continues to fall, the world added record levels of renewable energy capacity in 2016, at an investment level 23 per cent lower than the previous year, according to new research published today by UN Environment, the Frankfurt School-UNEP Collaborating Centre, and Bloomberg New Energy Finance.
Global Trends in Renewable Energy Investment 2017 finds that wind, solar, biomass and waste-to-energy, geothermal, small hydro and marine sources added 138.5 gigawatts to global power capacity in 2016, up 8 per cent from the 127.5 gigawatts added the year before. The added generating capacity roughly equals that of the world's 16 largest existing power producing facilities combined.

#EU #InvestmentBank confirms 200 million Euro long-term loan to #StateBank of #India to support Indian large scale #SolarProjects

The European Investment Bank today confirmed new support for solar power generation in India in partnership with the State Bank of India. The EUR 200 million (INR1,400 Crores) long-term loan will support total investment of EUR 650 million in five different large-scale photo-voltaic solar power projects and contribute to India’s National Solar mission and reduce dependence on fossil fuel power generation. Four schemes across the country, with a generation capacity of 530 MWac, have already been identified.

#WorldBank Group Launches New #OpenData and #Analytics #EnergyPlatform #datasets #ElectricityNetworkMaps #OffgridEnergy

Users can access electricity network maps to better plan renewable plant locations and off-grid solutions deployments, technical and commercial performances of African utilities to better assess investment risks, time-series maps of renewable measurement sites to facilitate large-scale renewable feasibility studies, and high-resolution population and settlement geospatial datasets to plan energy projects for greater impact.

Beyond datasets, it features tools to dig deeper, with apps that allow users to:

Assess the potential market for off-grid energy solutions
Determine solar power potential and solar plant prospective electricity outputs for any given location
Monitor rural electrification progress from nightlight satellite imagery data
Generate universal electrification scenarios, and more.

World Energy Council: Emerging #Disruptive Trends and #Technologies Top #GlobalEnergy Agenda #EnergyStorage

Renewables ranked high in impact within every region identified in a survey of more than 1,200 energy leaders in 95 countries. Solar has seen immense growth in installed capacity reaching 227GW by the end of 2015, while global wind power generation capacity increased at a rate of 17.2% in 2015.

In its eighth year, The World Energy Issues Monitor 2017: 'Exposing the new energy realities' published by the World Energy Council, provides a snapshot of the current priorities, facing global energy leaders.

A Hybrid ‘eco-roof’ design in #Malaysia combines five existing #EnergySaving Technologies into a single system

Scientists at the University of Malaya have designed a roof that can help address an environmental conflict: increasing demands for energy to increase living comfort versus a need to scale back fossil fuel use to address climate change. The conflict has driven interest in more efficient renewable energy sources, especially in emerging economies.

The roof’s most visible feature is a V-shaped structure set atop a peaked roof, which guides wind into a series of turbines situated below it to generate energy as they turn. The structure also increases airflow within the building by means of vents built into the peaked roof to enhance natural ventilation. In addition, a rainwater harvester is connected to an automated cooling and cleaning system that washes solar cells embedded in the sloped roof to keep them efficient. Transparent skylights brighten the main rooms inside the building during the daytime, reducing the need for artificial lighting.
