TenneT’s thinking is based on an island with a modular structure, with each module covering approximately 6 km². This is big enough to provide space for connecting roughly 30 GW of offshore wind capacity. The island will be expandable by adding one or two modules of 6 km² each
An Energy Hub in the middle of the North Sea? Tennet launched a vision building an island as a hub, for wind power in the middle of the North Sea which will provide all neighboring countries green energy.
By connecting wind farms with a total capacity of over 30 gigawatts, the efficiency and costs will benefit the participating countries.
This plan was presented by TenneT last week. TenneT is the national high-voltage grid operator in the Netherlands and in a part of Germany. Read More
Hydrogen fuel cells are highly efficient and less dangerous than gasoline
Hydrogen is the cleanest energy source we know of. In a electric fuel cell electricity is created by combining hydrogen and oxygen.
Without combustion, the only byproducts are water and heath.
Although hydrogen can be produced from diverse renewable resources already, the main challenge is cost. Most of the cost of creating hydrogen by electrolysis, comes from buying power from the grid. So new research is good for the future of affordable hydrogen. Read More
At this moment, researchers are evendeveloping solar panels who can produce energy at night!
Are there any cons for Solar Power? Yes of course but households can contribute with solar panels on top of their houses and so reduce greenhouse gasses.
But… These systems tend to be small scale and are certainly not the silver bullet to solve our energy challenge. Solar Power would make a huge difference, as one aspect of a multifaceted solution. Read More
The discharge that accumulates in highly toxic waste ponds pose a huge threat to wildlife.
In the United States a large supply of oil sands are found in Eastern Utah. These deposits of bitumen or heavy crude oil have the ability to generate about 12 to 19 billion barrels from a number of prominent sites. Canada also has oil reserves op 170 billion barrels. Read More
Less than 10% of rural populations in Sub-Saharan Africa have access to electricity
Much has changed over the last ten years or so since the renewable power boom began. At the start of the boom, renewable power costswere very expensive and high quality developers were hard to find. Nowadays good core development expertise is available and capital costs have dropped dramatically. Read More
Geothermal energy is generally considered environmentally friendly. There are a few polluting aspects of harnessing geothermal energy, but these are minor compared to the pollution associated with conventional fuel sources (e.g. coal, fossil fuels).
The carbon footprint of a geothermal power plant is minimal.
Further development of our geo resources is considered helpful in the fight against global warming.

In general terms, grid extensión is recommended only where it is the most cost-effective solution; mini-grids should be implemented at village scale where the cost of grid extension is not affordable; and stand-alone systems are suitable for remote areas with very low demand potential and scattered loads.
