The ILO said in its annual flagship report on the state of the global job market that action to combat climate change could create millions of new job opportunities and "more than" offset losses in traditional industries.
The report 'World Employment and Social Outlook 2018: Greening with jobs' said India has set itself the goal of generating 175 gigawatts of electricity from renewable sources by 2022, which corresponds to around half of its total electricity production. Th[...]
The EOI process is investigating the opportunity for WaterNSW’s assets, such as 42 dams across the state, to offer private developers the key ingredient required to develop new energy investments, such as pumped hydro, hydro generation, floating solar and other technologies.” I wasn’t able to make the briefing. The great advantage of the existing infrastructure is that there are likely to be far less issues around environmental approvals and water licenses. In addition brown[...]
There are three potential revenue sources for pumped hydro. Price arbitrage, ie selling electricity at a higher price than cost of electricity used to pump the water back to the top of the hill. This cost typically has to allow for round trip efficiency of about 75%. That is, pumped hydro is a net consumer of energy. Cap or insurance products: The standard product in the existing market is a $300 cap. This guarantees the buyer of the cap won’t pay more than $300/MWh over a given[...]
Production from the first two turbines of the 200MW Silverton wind farm near Broken Hill has begun, with the project scheduled to be completed by the middle of the year. So far, 18 of the 58 turbines have been erected for the $450 million project, which has been a major logistical test given its distance from ports and delivery of the major pieces of hardware such as the turbine blades and nacelles. The first production from the first two turbines was exported to the grid this pas[...]
