Carmakers must stop complaining and meet the 2025 EU CO2 target (like they did in 2020, and profitably)
Energy Post

In 2025, the EU’s car CO2 regulation will require a 15% reduction of fleet emissions from new passenger cars sold in Europe, compared to 2021 figures. But some carmakers are saying this target is unfair, claiming that they cannot control the consumers’ appetite for EVs. They want targets relaxed or fines waived.

Study: will sight of a Wind Turbine reduce your property prices?
Energy Post
by Maximilian Auffhammer
5d ago
Onshore wind turbines have a permitting problem in the U.S. and Europe. One main complaint from homeowners is that they believe the sight of a turbine will reduce their property value. Maximilian Auffhammer at the Energy Institute at Haas describes his co-authored published study that tests this assumption. The study looks at sale prices of […] The post Study: will sight of a Wind Turbine reduce your property prices? appeared first on Energy Post ..read more

Infrared Fabric heat-emitting “wallpaper” avoids the disruption and expense of Heat Pumps
Energy Post
by Michael Siebert
6d ago
Hundreds of millions of buildings across the world need clean heating. But retrofitting them all for heat pump installation is going to be expensive, disruptive, and take a long time. Michael Siebert at Nottingham Trent University describes a completely different approach, using new high-tech infrared fabrics that emit heat. Made of graphene, they can be […] The post Infrared Fabric heat-emitting “wallpaper” avoids the disruption and expense of Heat Pumps appeared first on Energy Post ..read more

Europe’s cross-border Interconnectors: how JAO auctions optimise energy flows, prices
Energy Post
by Jean-Baptiste Vaujour
1w ago
Interconnectors allow for cross-border flows of energy between two markets that would otherwise not be connected. Through an economic convergence between supply and demand, the cheapest marginal producer located anywhere in these two markets should be able to set market prices. As Jean-Baptiste Vaujour at the Emlyon Business School explains, the central question is to […] The post Europe’s cross-border Interconnectors: how JAO auctions optimise energy flows, prices appeared first on Energy Post ..read more

New Offshore Wind projects: is permitting being slowed by evidence from “grey literature”?
Energy Post
by Claire Szostek
1w ago
Offshore wind is the new frontier of clean energy generation. The permitting process depends on policymakers’ evaluation of the impact assessment evidence. As Claire Szostek at the Plymouth Marine Laboratory explains, that evidence has two sources: primary and “grey” literature. “Primary literature” comes from structured peer-reviewed scientific journals. “Grey literature” includes all other types of […] The post New Offshore Wind projects: is permitting being slowed by evidence from “grey literature”? appeared first on Energy Post ..read more

Green Steel: pathways for the new hydrogen-powered DRI-EAF projects
Energy Post
by Soroush Basirat
1w ago
H2-DRI-EAF uses hydrogen (H2) to produce direct reduced iron (DRI), which is then processed in an electric arc furnace (EAF) to produce steel. The two main challenges are ensuring an adequate supply of DR-grade iron ore, and cutting the end-to-end cost of making hydrogen. But right now, clean green hydrogen production is in its infancy, […] The post Green Steel: pathways for the new hydrogen-powered DRI-EAF projects appeared first on Energy Post ..read more

Solar PV technology improvements are rapid. But how do you test the long-term reliability of the new designs?
Energy Post
by Sara Fall
1w ago
Solar PV module technology moves fast, and is delivering improvements continuously. So fast that it’s no trivial matter to judge the long-term reliability of the changes. It’s a crucial issue as modules, once deployed, are expected to deliver results over lifetimes that span decades. Sara Fall and Jarett Zuboy at NREL describes a process designed […] The post Solar PV technology improvements are rapid.

Buildings: how can Europe reduce emissions from Construction?
Energy Post
by Carolina Kyllmann
1w ago
11% of global energy-related carbon emissions are embedded in the construction of buildings. Though focus has been on reducing operational emissions (28%, from heating and cooling, power etc.) there is not enough attention paid to construction, explains Carolina Kyllmann at CLEW. She looks at all the issues, including production of materials, transport to the site, […] The post Buildings: how can Europe reduce emissions from Construction? appeared first on Energy Post ..read more

Credit Rating Agencies downgrading Coal, Oil, Gas: climate change is now a clear risk category
Energy Post
by Tom Sanzillo
2w ago
Credit rating agencies now clearly recognise that climate change has become its own risk category, explains Tom Sanzillo at IEEFA who summarises his 43-page report. Financially, the coal, oil and gas sectors have served the world for decades. But due to regulatory, legal, economic, financial, political and social concerns, coal is credit negative and oil […] The post Credit Rating Agencies downgrading Coal, Oil, Gas: climate change is now a clear risk category appeared first on Energy Post ..read more
