According to data from the Energy and Climate Intelligence Unit’s (ECIU) Power Tracker, renewable energy sources in the UK over winter 2023/24 generated more electricity than gas power stations.

A rise in renewable energy is futile if our grids can’t keep pace with the growth

  • 2024-03-20 17:47:47
  • Junior Isles

The switch to clean energy can only happen if grids are upgraded to connect to more renewable projects, and store excess energy for later use, rather than curtail it. But bureaucratic processes are causing major delays to key renewable energy projects.

  • David Flin

The International Energy Agency (IEA) has published a report, CO2 emissions in 2023, that has found that global energy-related CO2 emissions rose less strongly in 2023 than the year before, even as total energy demand growth accelerated.

Energy security: positive action is desperately needed for carbon-free energy infrastructure

  • 2024-02-19 15:05:55
  • Junior Isles

It is encouraging to see both the current government and the opposition include nuclear energy firmly at the centre of their net zero strategies But although the ambition is certainly there, the question that remains is whether the money is too.

How to keep demand and supply in balance through the energy transition

  • 2024-02-16 10:52:25
  • Junior Isles

One of the most significant challenges posed by connecting more renewable energy to the grid is intermittency. Balancing the potential energy shortages or oversupply requires a flexible approach.

The impact of the Inflation Reduction Act on the global solar market

  • 2024-02-05 23:39:18
  • Junior Isles

Although the introduction of the US Inflation Reduction Act IRA incentivises solar manufacturing, local production capacity is currently only around 13 GW. This falls far short of government ambitions, and pales in comparison to the 1000 GW that China could produce if its factories were running at full capacity. The figures reflect how serious the oversupply situation is for the Chinese market, while the US faces mounting pressure to translate planned projects into reality.
