What is the target of A0’s recent load dispatch capacity announcement? We aim to ensure transparency in information and provide a better outlook on the real state of the current power network. In fact, there are a multitude of solar power investors, but they mostly concentrate on geographical areas having a lot of sunlight which might lead to network overload. Under current regulations, approved solar power projects are entitled to a feed-in-tariff (FiT) rate of 9.35 US cents per kilowatt-hour (kWh) for a duration of 20 years if they can finish construction and be put into operation before June 2019. To ensure information transparency and impartiality in power purchases with the June 2019 benchmark looming, A0 has made calculations and announced the results, helping the investors understand the current power network situation, what areas might be threatened by capacity overload and why, based on the current database. Some investors might still rush into solar power projects … [Read more...] about Optimising the efficiency of solar power investment

Jakarta (ANTARA News) - The Director General of Renewable Energy and Energy Conservation at the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources, Rida Mulyana, has stated that Indonesia`s geography is a challenge in the transition from fossil energy to renewable energy. "The challenge is how to accelerate the transition. The transition process from fossil energy to renewable energy in UK and Denmark is very rapid. Indonesia really wants to make rapid transition, but our geographic conditions are very different and this is our challenge," Mulyana stated in his remarks at the Indonesian-German Renewable Energy Day (RE Day) 2018 held here on Wednesday. Mulyana pointed out that the government is currently focusing on programs which are aimed at equally distributing energy access to all people across the nation, or the so-called fair energy program. However, the government also wants to simultaneously move from fossil energy to environmental-friendly energy. At present, the electrification ratio … [Read more...] about Geographic condition becomes challenge in Indonesia`s renewable energy development
National Grid is one of those businesses that everyone assumes is quintessentially British. Today's full year results, though, highlight that it is increasingly a Transatlantic company.Operating profits from its US operations were £1.7bn, the same as they were from the Grid's better-known - at least to UK consumers - UK electricity transmission business, although the UK remains, for now, the Grid's most important geographic market thanks to its activities in gas distribution.The US, where the Grid is one of the largest suppliers of household energy, including the evocatively named New York State-based utility Niagara Mohawk, is growing in importance, though.The US now makes up 45% of the Grid's regulated asset base.That can be seen by the Grid's investment during the last 12 months. While it invested £1bn in its UK electricity transmission operations and a further £310m in its gas transmission arm, the Grid invested $3.3b (£2.4bn) in its US businesses, driven by … [Read more...] about Wind of change as National Grid looks to renewables for growth
Published May 10, 2018 Markets Motley Fool Facebook Twitter Comments Print Things are moving fast in renewable energy. Really fast. Consider that in 2008 wind farms supplied just 1.5% of all electricity in the United States. But by 2019 wind power is expected to contribute 6.9% of American electricity and overtake hydropower as the top renewable energy source. The rise of wind power wouldn't have been possible without two companies in particular, which combine to own 20.7 gigawatts of wind capacity, or about 24% of the country's total. Investors wouldn't be surprised to learn that clean energy provider NextEra Energy is one of the renewable energy stocks most important to American wind power. However, the relatively unheard of natural gas and electric utility Xcel Energy (NASDAQ: XEL) doesn't seem to garner nearly the same level of attention. Overlooking it could be a mistake.
