    Europe on course for off-grid parity ahead of US: EY study

    Europe will reach off-grid energy parity up to 20 years earlier than some regions of the US, according to a study from global business group EY. The research predicts it will cost the same to self-generate and store power as to purchase from a utility by 2022 in Europe, and a year earlier in Oceania. That point won’t be reached for “much longer” in US markets, and not until 2042 in the “complex

    German North Sea wind generation jumps by 47% in 2017

    Network operator TenneT last year transmitted 15.97 terawatt hours of electricity from German North Sea wind farms, a 47% jump when compared to 2016. Wind power from the North Sea accounted for 15.9% of Germany’s overall wind harvest in 2017, TenneT added. In the Baltic Sea, where offshore wind is transmitted by TSO 50Hertz, offshore wind farms fed 1.49TWh into the German grid in 2017, up from 1

    Powering Europe with 34% RE by 2030 'cost effective and realisable': Irena

    Scaling up the share of renewable energy in the European Union (EU) power mix to around 34% by 2030 from the current 27% target would be “cost effective and realisable”, according to analysis from the International Renewable Energy Agency (Irena). A new Irena study, commissioned by the European Commission, found that harnessing “additional potential” of a more ambitious wind and solar build-out i
