The planned energy island in the North Sea is a monumental project that not only plays a leading role in fulfilling Denmark’s target for reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 70% by 2030, but also contributes to increasing renewable energy across Europe.
SolarDuck, a Dutch renewable energy start-up, has launched the first floating solar energy project last week. The project, called the Demonstrator, consists of four triangular platforms covered with solar panels, which rest on floaters. This Demonstrator floats at IJzendoorn (NL), and delivers energy to the grid.
New analysis from Westwood Global Energy Group (Westwood), the specialist energy market research and consultancy firm, reveals offshore wind energy projects final investment decisions (FIDs), outside mainland China, will grow 57% in the next 18 months, compared to the 2019-20 period.
Ørsted and Danish ATP Group have joined forces to submit a bid in the upcoming tender for the Danish North Sea energy island. The new partnership brings together the capabilities of the world's leading offshore wind developer and Denmark's largest institutional investor.
Rystad Energy will proudly organize and host the Energy Transition Marathon, an exciting virtual event that will address and provide unique analysis of all key elements of the energy transition.
Once Troll Vest in the North Sea is hooked up to receive electric power through cables from shore in 2026 (Troll B partial, Troll C complete), this will result in emission cuts of 466,000 tonnes of CO₂ each year, according to statements by operator Equinor in a new plan for development and operation (PDO), submitted Friday.
Hywind Tampen project is now moving from Stord to the deep-water site at Dommersnes where the concrete slipforming of the spar-substructures will be completed. This is the first concrete slipforming for an offshore project on the Norwegian continental shelf since the Troll A platform was delivered in 1995.
CGG has signed a strategic agreement to support dCarbonX in the subsurface assessment of its operated clean energy projects offshore Ireland and the UK (which include geothermal energy and storage sites for CO2, hydrogen and ammonia). Such projects are critical in the ongoing energy transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy systems.
