Why is green energy infrastructure booming despite global economic woes?

The Covid-19 pandemic and resulting economic fallout have had a variety of impacts on the clean energy transition, with some sectors being more affected than others. Earlier this year, the International Energy Agency (IEA) warned of slowed progress towards sustainable energy goals due to Covid-19 and reversed progress in many areas crucial in reaching net zero, such as energy efficiency, clean cooking, or access to electricity. There is one sector, however, that has shown remarkable resilience since the beginning of the pandemic and has been able to maintain, and even accelerate, its rapid growth since 2020: green energy infrastructure.

Backward ray tracing for fast energy yield simulations

Scientists in the Netherlands have developed a model to forecast the energy yield of a PV system. It is able to take into account factors such as partial shading and multiple module orientations. Tested against a reference cell and pyranometer, the model showed less than 5% error, and the scientists claim their approach is up to three orders of magnitude faster than more common approaches using complex ray tracing.

Iberdrola to invest €170 million in UK green hydrogen project

Iberdrola will develop a facility to supply green hydrogen to vehicles and machinery at the United Kingdom’s largest port, Felixstowe. The project is set start operations in 2026, with the capacity to produce 14,000 tons of green hydrogen in its first year, and the possibility to double this further down the line.

Secrets of sustainable distributed-generation strategies

Tom Hunt, the CEO of Pivot Energy, says that renewable energy capacity at the distribution level can meet needs without the long lead times required for larger, utility-scale resources.
