  • [New] New buildings will need to be energy-neutral or even energy-generating beyond 2025, while the majority of existing buildings, both commercial and residential, will need to undergo vast renovations to significantly improve their energy efficiency. ING
  • [New] In total, Amp Power expects the Renewable Energy Hub of South Australia to total up to 1.3 6GW of generation and 540 MW of battery storage. reneweconomy
  • [New] The IEA should emphasize energy efficiency solutions and increasing truly renewable energy use rather than projecting unsustainable bioenergy production. #FixTheWEO
  • [New] Drax plans to deploy vital negative emissions technology, bioenergy with carbon capture and storage, at its power station in North Yorkshire. Drax
  • [New] Breakthrough in battery chemistry in 30 years - the technology to replace graphite anodes - which will usher in a new era of energy storage. Auto Connected Car News
  • [New] Lithium-ion battery demand jumps 17 4,605 GWh by 2030 with energy storage m king up around 6% of the total - Natural graphite demand grows by a factor of s ven by 2030 to roughly 5.9 mt. Virgin Australian Group
  • [New] New programme of nationwide events will encourage British businesses to work with renewable energy pioneer Drax to deliver its multi-billion-pound climate-saving negative emissions technology - bioenergy with carbon capture and storage. Drax
  • [New] Action is needed now, because most buildings will be standing for generations to come, and C40 cities are taking action to improve efficiency and energy consumption in buildings. Medium
  • [New] The power storage devices remain the single most expensive part of an EV and could remain expensive despite pack efficiency improvements because batteries rely on globally sourced commodity metals and materials. Forbes
  • [New] Reduce external energy dependency - Reducing greenhouse gas emissions by at least 55% by 2030 requires higher shares of renewable energy and greater energy efficiency. Ocean Generation
  • [New] With the continued decline of solar and battery storage costs, Duke Energy and other utilities across the US will be able to replace retiring coal plants with a mix of renewable energy and battery storage resources in a cost-effective way and achieve greater reductions in GHG emissions. The Brattle Group
  • Efforts to reduce global carbon emissions will likely require significant improvements to energy efficiency and the quality of infrastructure. New Security Beat
  • Scenarios with higher levels of future energy demand show lower levels of CO2 emissions reductions to 2030 and rely to a much greater extent on the use of bioenergy with carbon and capture storage for negative emissions later in the century, increasing demand for land. OECD
  • As a means of energy, Panasonic factories will undertake promoting zero-CO 2 model factories, increasing the use of renewable energy, and promoting energy efficiency in production. Panasonic,
  • Efficiency gains lead to a flattening of energy demand from the 2030s Energy efficiency is the unsung hero of the energy transition and should be the number one priority for companies and governments. The International Institute of Marine Surveying (IIMS)
  • Energy efficiency is cited as the biggest opportunity to tackle climate change, alongside investment into hydrogen and carbon capture technologies - fossil fuel sources are still projected to constitute 50% of the global energy mix by 2050, particularly gas. The Engineer
  • Duke could reduce 2030 GHG emissions to 20.4 MMT, a 74% reduction relative to 2005, by shifting its resource mix away from existing coal plants and new gas plants and towards renewable energy and storage. The Brattle Group
  • Brattle's study concludes that, by shifting its resource mix from coal and gas resources to renewable energy and battery storage, Duke Energy could achieve over 70% GHG emissions reductions by 2030 (relative to 2005 emissions) while lowering generation costs. The Brattle Group
  • Canada will not be able to assist the home building sector to truly achieve net-zero carbon while energy efficiency remains the only metric.
  • The growth in demand for electric vehicles and fleet charging solutions will require smart energy storage to help optimize energy usage. PR Newswire
