The agreement is a strong, positive development for the company in the Indian market in the wake of its temporary slowdown. The agreement encompasses the entire infrastructure needed to operate the project together with the supply of 100 of its G114-2.0 wind turbines with a hub height of 106 meters, specifically designed for the low-wind sites typical of India. The project is expected to be commissioned by February 2019. Present in the market since 2009, Siemens Gamesa has installed over 5 GW in India and the company has been the leading OEM in India for the last three years.

Enel, acting through its renewable energy subsidiary Enel Rinnovabile has been awarded four wind projects for a total capacity of 593 MW Mexico’s third long-term public tender since its energy reform. The award follows Enel’s success in the two previous tenders, once again confirming its position as the largest renewable player in Mexico in terms of installed capacity and project portfolio. The Company has been awarded the contracts for 15-year energy supply and 20-year clean certificates. The Group will be investing around 700 million US dollars in the construction of the plants.
FutureLearn, the leading social learning platform, has announced a new partnership with InnoEnergy, Europe’s sustainable energy engine supported by the EIT. The partnership will see InnoEnergy host a range of new online education courses in the sustainable energy sector, including blockchain technology, smart grids and solar photovoltaics, on the FutureLearn platform. The massive open online courses (MOOCs) are aimed at cleantech industry professionals, and members of the public can also register. Designed to equip participants with the knowledge and skills required to develop new innovations in sustainable energy, the first courses are focused on a range of topics that are set to dominate the innovation agenda over the next few years, including blockchain, smart grids for smart cities and the business potential of solar photovoltaics.
VINCI Energies has won a project that could be at the spearhead of many other similar projects for EU, Chinese and US firms. A €26.8m contract for 8 pv power plants with a combined capacity of 17 MW, to be built over a period of only 10 months. Strategically the project will diversify Senegal’s energy mix and electrify the country’s isolated regions. The power plants will use 62,850 panels overall and produce the annual energy consumption for 140,000 people. The project represents a €26.8 million investment, financed by the German bank KFW and Senelec.
ON Power, a part of Reykjavik Energy, has signed a contract with ABB for the delivery and installation of 15 Terra multi-standard DC chargers type 53 CJG at various points along Iceland’s main highway. Today there are over 1,400 electric vehicles on the road in Iceland due to a state-financed incentive program, which supports the purchase of electric vehicles. The tender for fast chargers is part of the country’s campaign to promote and expand Iceland’s e-mobility strategy by increasing the availability of flexible and robust charging stations along central locations of the national highway across the entire country.
Enel has been admitted for the second year in a row in the Climate A list of global environmental disclosure platform CDP, which comprises companies from around the world that have been identified as global leaders in corporate response to climate change. CDP recognised Enel’s actions to cut emissions, mitigate climate risks and develop the low-carbon economy. “The inclusion in this prestigious list further confirms our contribution to the fight against climate change, one of the most pressing challenges the world faces today and which requires full engagement from corporate players,” said Francesco Starace, Enel Group CEO.
A shift is coming in the energy industry with a focus on hardware to the increased importance of software in order to make systems more efficient, resilient, and digital. Digital technologies for fossil fuel operation and maintenance are big business today, but activity is shifting towards services for distributed renewables and the connected home. New energy innovations will be centred on digital technologies and the strategic use of data, according to new research published today.
Amazon has announced that its largest wind farm yet—Amazon Wind Farm Texas—is now up and running, adding more than 1,000,000 MWh of clean energy to the grid each year. In total, Amazon has launched 18 wind and solar projects across the US, with over 35 more to come. Together, they will generate enough clean energy to power over 330,000 homes annually. The Farm includes more than 100 turbines – each over 300 feet tall with a rotor diameter more than twice the wingspan of a Boeing 787. It is built, owned, and operated by Lincoln Clean Energy (LCE).
Renewable energy has continued to develop at ever increasing rates, with remarkable growth seen since the start of this decade. The pace of the energy transition is driving innovation and growth in related sectors. For energy networks and grids integrating small gas turbines, micro-turbines, fuel cells, biomass, small hydropower, wind and solar energy; distributed generation installation provides significant solutions in the restructured electricity regime. This is particularly so, where there is a larger uncertainty in demand and supply.
Ministers and officials representing 30 countries and organizations met in Malé, Maldives, signalling the determination of small island developing states (SIDS) to strengthen global efforts to address climate change and accelerate renewable energy deployment. “In the wake of a deadly hurricane season in the Caribbean and at a time when the resolve to tackle the climate crisis has been called into question, small islands are sending the world a clear message: we are seizing the promise of renewable energy to grow our economies today and build a better future for tomorrow,” said Thoriq Ibrahim, Energy and Environment Minister for the Maldives and Chair of Alliance of Small Island States.
Governments of ASEAN and the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA), have established a strategy to accelerate the region’s transition to low-carbon, sustainable energy and build its climate resilience. “Increasing investment in renewable energy across Southeast Asia’s growing populations has significant social and economic benefits across the region, liberating them from expensive fossil fuel imports while boosting economic growth, supporting energy security, job creation and national resilience,” said Adnan Z. Amin, co-chair of the Dialogue.
