September Power and Renewables Research Highlights 2020/10/02 09:03:39 IHS Markit
Below is a selection from a wide range of publications issued recently from IHS Markit power and renewables experts. For more information about our power and renewables capabilities, please contact our global power and renewables expert team or visit our Global Power and Renewables service website. Global wind turbine installation overview and announced wind turbine order tracker IHS Markit tracked 62.5 GW of new wind installations in 2019, 22% higher than the year before. While over 90% of this was in onshore, the offshore sector also remained strong with annual installations growing by 45%. However, the COVID-19 pandemic resulted in a slow start to 2020 with only 23.5 GW of publicly announced firm wind turbine orders recorded globally in the first half. Major OEMs have consolidated market share globally with the five largest players comprising Vestas, SGRE, Goldwind, GE, and Envision supplying nearly 70% of the global installations in 2019. In terms of announced turbine contracts in first half 2020, Vestas retained its lead position globally while mainland China's ongoing installation rush resulted in local OEMs taking five of the top ten spots.
Wisconsin Utility Alliant Energy Pledges Net-Zero Carbon by 2050 2020/07/23 20:55:00 Green Technology Media
Wisconsin-based utility Alliant Energy has joined the ranks of U.S. utilities pledging to zero out their net carbon emissions by mid-century. The company set an “aspiration” to reach net-zero carbon by 2050 and eliminate all coal power plants from its fleet by 2040. Alliant’s new goal is part of a broader “accelerated sustainability” plan released this week, which includes an increase in its existing 2030 carbon-reduction goals from 40 percent to 50 percent, eliminating all coal from its generation fleet a decade ahead of previously scheduled, and boosting its 2050 carbon reduction goals from 80 to 100 percent. Alliant serves about 1 million customers in Wisconsin and Iowa, and gets about 20 percent of its generation capacity from renewables today, mostly from wind farms in Iowa. Coal made up 31 percent of its capacity as of 2018, while natural gas accounted for about 42 percent. Alliant joins a long list of utilities that have set 2050 net-zero carbon goals prior to being forced into them by state mandate, including Southern Company , Duke Energy , Arizona Public Service , NRG, PSEG and, in the Midwest, Xcel Energy and Consumers Energy .

In U.S., Engie and Hannon Armstrong Form Multi-Gigawatt Renewables Partnership 2020/07/02 07:00:00 Green Technology (Feed)
The North American arm of European energy giant Engie SA and climate-focused investor Hannon Armstrong announced Thursday they will partner on a 2.3-gigawatt portfolio of U.S. wind and solar projects slated for completion this year. The two will split equity ownership of the Engie-developed portfolio, with that company maintaining a 51 percent majority interest and continuing to manage the projects. The portfolio includes wind installations in South Dakota, Kansas, Oklahoma and Texas as well as solar projects in Texas — where Engie’s North American subsidiary is based — and Virginia. Offtakers include big-name brands such as Target, Microsoft and Walmart, plus just one investor-owned utility: Minnesota-based Xcel Energy, which is working towards 100 percent carbon-free electricity by 2050. In April, Engie announced it had secured $1.6 billion in tax equity financing from Bank of America and HSBC for its 2-gigawatt portfolio still under construction in the U.S. By the end of 2020, formerly fossil-focused Engie plans to have developed and constructed 2.3 gigawatts of renewables operating in the U.S., where in 2018 it had none. “We’ve been through a big transformation over the past years, in order to refocus our activity on renewables,” Gwenaelle Avice-Huet, CEO at Engie North America, told Greentech Media.

Renewables Toppled Coal in US Energy Consumption in 2019, EIA Says 2020/05/28 16:03:00 Green Technology (Feed)
The U.S. got more energy from renewables in 2019 than it did from coal, a year sooner than that same milestone is expected for the electricity sector on its own, according to the Energy Information Administration. Last year the U.S. consumed 11.3 quadrillion British thermal units of coal, the lowest level since 1964. By comparison, total consumption of renewable energy hit a record-high 11.5 quadrillion Btu, the EIA said Thursday, as the country’s base of wind and solar farms continued to expand. Prior to 2019, the last year that the country got more total energy from renewables than coal was 1885, when wood was the main renewable resource on offer. Earlier this month the EIA put out figures projecting that renewables will topple coal in the U.S. electricity mix throughout 2020, another major milestone. While most renewable energy is used for power in the U.S., significant amounts are consumed other areas, including biofuels for transportation. Consumption of coal, also mostly used for power generation in the U.S., has fallen dramatically over the past decade.
Southern Company Commits to Net-Zero Carbon by 2050, but Seeks New Gas Plants for Now 2020/05/27 20:46:00 Green Technology (Feed)
Southern Company has joined other major U.S. utilities in setting a net-zero carbon target for 2050, aiming to balance the emissions from its sizable fossil fuel-fired generation fleet and sprawling natural gas business with reductions to be gained by expanding its portfolio of renewable energy and energy efficiency. Wednesday's announcement puts Southern Company in the ranks of other U.S. utilities pledging mid-century net-zero carbon targets, including Xcel Energy , Duke Energy , Dominion Energy , Arizona Public Service , NRG, PSEG and Consumers Energy . Shareholder activist groups Ceres and As You Sow , which have pressed for the target, called it a significant improvement on the company’s “low to no carbon” by 2050 goal set just two years ago. Southern Company, which owns a number of utilities across the Deep South, said it now expects to hit a 50 percent reduction in carbon emissions compared to 2007 levels “well ahead” of its previous 2030 target, and possibly as early as 2025. That’s “another encouraging step by a utility that shows increased ambition around climate,” Dan Bakal, senior director of electric power at Ceres, said in a Wednesday interview.
Wisconsin Has 150MW of Solar. Alliant Just Bought 675MW More 2020/05/26 19:39:00 Green Technology (Feed)
Wisconsin utility Alliant Energy will spend $900 million buying 675 megawatts of utility-scale solar projects as it moves to replace uneconomic coal-fired plants with renewables. Alliant, which serves about 1 million customers in the Midwestern states of Wisconsin and Iowa, currently relies on renewables for about 20 percent of its generation capacity, largely wind power in Iowa, with twice as much coming from natural gas plants. On Tuesday Alliant said it will "acquire" six large-scale solar projects in Wisconsin from developers NextEra Energy Resources, Ranger Power, and Savion. The projects, ranging from 50 megawatts up to a 200-megawatt development owned by NextEra, represent a huge leap forward for Wisconsin's solar market. The state has around 150 megawatts of installed solar today, according to Wood Mackenzie Power & Renewables. Alliant’s solar news comes just days after it announced plans to close the remaining 380-megawatt unit of its coal-fired Edgewater Generating Station in Sheboygan by the end of 2022, a move it said will save customers “hundreds of millions of dollars in costs.” Alliant subsidiary Wisconsin Power and Light closed two other, older units at Edgewood over the past five years.
