Ørsted Plans Carbon Capture at Avedøre Power Station 

Ørsted has identified the 100 MW straw-fired unit at the Avedøre Power Station in Copenhagen as the best point source of sustainable CO2 for the next phases of the Green Fuels for Denmark Power-to-X facility in the Greater Copenhagen area which over time is planned to reach a total capacity of 1.3 GW and have a carbon emission abatement potential of 850,000 tons yearly. If the project at Avedøre Power Station is realised, it could become Ørsted's first carbon capture facility. A future final investment decision for the carbon capture project is subject to the realisation of the parts of Green Fuels for Denmark that will produce e-methanol and e-kerosene.

DOE Announces Support for Program on Advanced Water Heating to Cut Carbon Emissions

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) announced its support of a new nationwide campaign to drastically cut carbon emissions and energy use from heating water with advanced heat pump technology. The Advanced Water Heating Initiative (AWHI) will work nationally to drive increased manufacturing, sales, installations, and operation of heat pump water heaters (HPWHs) across the United States. HPWHs are game-changing products that are two to four times more efficient than conventional options.

Highview Enlasa Developing Liquid Air Energy Storage Facility in Chile

Highview Enlasa, the 50/50 joint venture between Highview Power, a global leader in long duration energy storage solutions, and Energía Latina S.A.-Enlasa, the largest backup power generation provider in Chile, is pleased to announce that it is developing the first liquid air long duration energy storage project in Chile. This 50MW/500MWh (10 hours) CRYOBattery™, which represents an estimated investment of $150 million, will be located in Diego de Almagro in the Atacama Region. 

Airbus Establishes Zero-Emission Development Centers in Germany and France

Airbus is concentrating its  efforts for metallic hydrogen tanks in a complementary setup by creating Zero-Emission Development Centers (ZEDC) at its sites in Bremen (Germany) and in Nantes (France). The goal of the ZEDC is to achieve cost-competitive cryogenic tank manufacturing to support the successful future market launch of ZEROe and to accelerate the development of hydrogen-propulsion technologies. The design and integration of tank structures is crucial to the performance of a future hydrogen aircraft.

Enso secures funding for ‘range extending’ EV tyre

Enso, a company that is developing a revolutionary electric vehicle (EV) tyre that can increase the distance that an EV can travel and at the same time reduce tyre pollution (air and micro plastic pollution), has launched a crowdfunding campaign via the Crowdcube platform.

The future of the global solar energy industry: An interview with Jonas Eklind of Azelio

According to the International Energy Agency’s annual report (Oct 13th 2020), solar power is now cheaper than electricity generated by coal and natural gas in most countries. This is kick-starting a profound global change from fossil to renewable energy, despite Covid-19, in which renewable energy is estimated to supply 80 percent of the total power generation in 2030.
