PV Tech: Iberdrola scored a bullish financial performance in a year when it almost doubled its spending on renewables, delivering Europe’s self-styled largest solar plant in the process. The Spanish utility giant managed last year to pass the €10 billion (US$10.8 billion) EBITDA mark and boost annual net profits by 13% to €3.4 billion (US$3.7 […]
Windpower Monthly: In another sign of rising confidence in the Spanish wind industry, the oil and gas major unveiled the follow-up to its 335MW Delta wind project by unwrapping the plans for the 860MW Delta 2 complex. This takes Repsol’s total renewable energy capacity under development to just over 2GW and brings the company’s total […]
Bloomberg: Vietnam may scale back a plan to boost coal’s role in its power generation as financial restrictions and local environmental concerns make it more difficult to build plants. The National Steering Committee for Power Development has recommended eliminating about 15 gigawatts of planned new coal plants by 2025 due to slow progress and the […]
Reuters: British power producer Drax Group Plc said in its full-year results on Thursday it will end coal power generation at its North Yorkshire plant, ahead of Britain’s 2024 deadline. Drax, which has the capacity to provide electricity for around 13 million homes, has converted four of its six former coal-fired units in the past […]
CEO Don Lindsay of Teck Resources in Canada announced this week that his company was withdrawing from the environmental permit process for its $20-billion Frontier oil sands mine project. The business decision is a sound one for the company. The project is too big for Teck, no partners emerged, oil prices are too low and […]
The rapid drop in the cost of renewable energy is reshaping the world’s energy systems. As part and parcel of this shift, a new landscape is emerging among finance and power companies. Southeast Asian conglomerates, such as Ayala, are at the forefront. Global capital markets are exiting coal plants used to generate electricity in terms […]
The world’s largest investment firm BlackRock made headlines in January 2020 with an announcement suggesting it was finally retreating from investment in thermal coal. Kudos given where kudos is due. This was an albeit late but excellent series of steps to move towards an alignment with the Paris Agreement by the world’s most powerful financial […]
The business template behind a proposal to turn the San Juan Generating Station into a model carbon-capture project doesn’t hold up under much scrutiny. On paper, it’s an elegant, almost magical idea. It would retrofit an aging and increasingly uncompetitive coal-fired power plant with whiz-bang technology that would trap its carbon dioxide emissions and sell […]
Bloomberg: Lenders backing away from coal financing have tipped the scales against the dirtiest fossil fuel in Southeast Asia, raising the prospect that many new power plants will never be built, according to BloombergNEF. About half of the proposed 41 gigawatts of coal-fired capacity in Indonesia and Vietnam haven’t secured funding, and plans by banks […]
Virginia Mercury: Even before major legislation that would set a timeline for the closure of all of Virginia’s coal plants clears the General Assembly, two coal-burning facilities in Chesterfield and King George have announced retirements. On Feb. 20, Dominion Energy notified PJM, the regional electric grid operator from which Virginia gets its energy, that it […]
Greentech Media: Long duration grid storage company Highview Power announced Tuesday it had raised a major equity investment to support its journey to market. Global industrial conglomerate Sumitomo Heavy Industries invested $46 million in Highview, becoming the largest minority shareholder in the company. The money will support Highview’s quest to commercialize large-scale energy storage plants, […]
February 26, 2019 (IEEFA U.S.) ‒ Faced with a convergence of market forces, the world’s five leading integrated oil and gas companies are reducing historically robust levels of capital spending, according to a briefing note released today by the Institute for Energy Economics and Financial Analysis (IEEFA).
Australia is facing an ongoing energy crisis in the face of a technology driven market disruption. In addition to ongoing and destabilising policy uncertainty, an ageing and increasingly unreliable coal-fired power station fleet is losing cost competitiveness as subsidised coal supply contracts expire and the market pivots from the now entirely outdated baseload concept towards […]
Yes to the first question, and a nuanced no to the second. Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte said in his State of the Nation address last year: “We recognize the urgent need to ensure the sustainability and availability of resources, and the development of alternative ones. In this regard, I trust that [Energy Secretary Alfonso] Cusi […]
CNBC: JPMorgan Chase announced a pledge to facilitate $200 billion in environmental and economic development deals and will pull back from advising and lending to the coal-mining industry. The new targets, disclosed Tuesday in presentations for the New York-based bank’s annual investor day, mark an expansion from previous sustainable financing goals. Apart from helping to […]
Reuters: Japan will launch a review by the end of June aimed at tightening conditions for the export of coal-fired power plants, environment minister Shinjiro Koizumi said on Tuesday.
