Total And Macquarie Invest In 2.3gw Portfolio Of Floating Wind Projects In South Korea

French oil major Total and Macquarie's Green Investment Group (GIG) announced plans on Tuesday to develop a 2.3-gigawatt portfolio of floating offshore wind projects in South Korea. The pair said they will each take a 50 percent stake in five Korean projects, with an initial 500-megawatt phase to begin construction as soon as 2023. That ambitious timeline makes the projects frontrunners to be the first industrial-scale floating offshore wind farm anywhere in the world. The global pipeline of floating wind demonstration and pilot projects has grown in recent years, with interest especially strong among oil companies.

Woodmac: 2020s Will Be The 'decade Of Hydrogen'

Falling costs and growing project pipelines will ensure the 2020s are the "decade of hydrogen," according to new research from Wood Mackenzie. Over the past 10 months, the global green hydrogen project pipeline has swelled from 3.5 gigawatts to more than 15 gigawatts. Green hydrogen is considered by many to be a vital component of any credible net-zero carbon plan, and it can be used to decarbonize a number of industrial processes and heavy transport. (Check out GTM's green hydrogen explainer here.)

A First Solar Plant Is Being Paid To Help Balance Chile's Electric Grid

Back in 2016, First Solar proved that utility-scale solar farms can provide critical transmission grid services in a California pilot project. Four years later, the leading U.S.-based solar module maker has taken the next big step in turning this capability into a real-world grid resource: getting a grid operator to pay for it. Chilean grid operator Coordinador Electrico Nacional has added First Solar's 141-megawatt Luz del Norte PV power plant to its list of generators approved to provide grid services.

California's Shift From Natural Gas To Solar Is Playing A Role In Rolling Blackouts

California undertook its first rolling blackouts since the 2001 energy crisis, as a heatwave slammed the Western U.S. Friday and Saturday. Electricity demand for air-conditioning throughout the region stretched California's power capacity and limited the state's ability to import power from nearby states. But the blackouts were also a side effect of the state's increasing shift to solar power and away from natural gas-fired generators, according to state grid operator CAISO and Wood Mackenzie analysts.

America's Clean Energy Transition Demands A Mining Boom

As America stands today, we are unwisely laying the foundation for another huge energy problem: over relying on outsiders for the essential components of the energy world of tomorrow. We should be doing all that we can to change this glaring vulnerability.

The Summer Of Battery Storage

We may be facing one of the worst economic downturns in American history, but it hasn't stopped the surge in battery storage development. We're constantly hearing the phrase "world's largest" or "record breaking" as new gigawatt-scale projects are unveiled weekly. Small-scale batteries are being attached to more than one-third of residential solar systems for leading installers, making distributed batteries a staple of home energy offerings. New markets like Texas are heating up. And utilities are putting batteries front-and-center in their 100% clean energy plans.
