Europe could install 1.5 million Thermostats

gaz pour l'europe

At the G7, a U.S.-European team submitted a study report aimed at solving Europe’s energy crisis. The group then reported to Ursula von der Leyen and US President Joe Biden. Among the solutions are projects to install tools that help households reduce their energy consumption. US companies could then supply the EU with smart thermostats by the end of the year.

Smart thermostats in European homes

Currently, Europe is limiting its imports of Russian hydrocarbons and is having difficulty finding new suppliers. The report therefore calls for a reduction in energy consumption and the installation of energy-saving equipment. The working group was set up last March to boost cooperation between Washington and Brussels.

Connected to the internet, a smart thermostat allows to automatically adjust the temperature of the house. Thus, the tool could help European households to limit their energy consumption. Thanks to this technology, households could also see a decrease in the price of their bills.

The project seeks to get EU countries to collaborate with US companies. 1.5 million smart thermostats could be installed by the end of 2022. The group also advocates other energy-saving solutions, such as the use of heat pumps.

The United States supports Europe

Since the beginning of the Ukrainian crisis, the United States has come to the aid of its European allies. Last March, Washington pledged to supply Europe with 15 billion cubic meters of LNG before 2023. Europe’s gas imports have increased by 75% since February, and those from the United States have tripled.

Washington is providing Brussels with resources and tools to help their allies through the crisis. Cooperation between the Americans and the Europeans is thus strengthened. U.S. industries should then continue to provide solutions to the EU.

HySynergy: Everfuel and Crossbridge launch phase 2

Everfuel and Crossbridge Energy announced that they have signed a long-term agreement. It determines the terms of the hydrogen supply for one stage of the HySynergy project, currently under development. This is a major milestone for the smelter, which is expected to reach a capacity of 300 MW. Everfuel and Crossbridge Energy launch the second phase of HySynergy Everfuel and Crossbridge Energy have approved commercial terms for the first stage of the HySynergy smelter development. Three stages make up phase two of the development, corresponding to three sections of 100 MW capacity. Section A is expected to produce up to 40 tons of renewable hydrogen per day. The Crossbridge Energy refinery will use this hydrogen to produce more sustainable fuel. It is also intended for the mobility and industrial sectors as a zero-emission fuel. Jacob Krogsgaard, CEO of Everfuel, welcomes the agreement with Crossbridge Energy: "The long-term agreement on commercial terms with Crossbridge Energy is an important element for the HySynergy Phase II development project. We share a strong partnership and look forward to continuing our collaboration on the construction of a large-scale PtX facility that will be a game changer for the energy transition in Denmark. Before that, of...

Tata Power Solar inaugurates a Floating Solar project

Tata Power Solar, a wholly owned subsidiary of Tata Power, has just accomplished a remarkable feat in India. In fact, it has just commissioned the largest floating solar power project in the country. Despite the technical difficulties, the company was able to deliver the project on time, proving its commitment to the energy transition. Tata Power Solar achieves a technical feat Tata Power Solar inaugurates India's largest floating solar power project. The latter is located on a body of water of about 141 hectares in the backwaters of Kayamkulam, in Kerala. In addition, this project has an installed capacity of 101.6MWp. This project is the first of the floating solar photovoltaic power plants (FSPV) with a power purchase agreement. In addition, it has obtained a commercial operation date (CoD) certification designating it as complete and operational. Tata Power Solar has built a platform on the water on which the entire solar power plant floats. 134 cast pile foundations, drilled to a depth of 20 meters, anchor the entire project to the waterbed. This supports the central monitoring and control stations and the 33/220 kilovolt distribution substation. The entire array includes floats and solar panel modules. Tata Power Solar had to...

CIP invests in Onshore Wind in Spain

In a press release, CIP announces its commitment to onshore wind energy. With an investment of 70 million euros, the group is pursuing its commitments made at the COP 26. In effect, CIP is providing a CI GCF I credit to Capital Energy, a major Spanish renewable energy developer. CIP wants to develop onshore wind power in Spain First of all, Capital Energy wants to develop onshore wind power in Spain. With this in mind, a financing agreement was signed between the two entities. The CIP loan will provide a total of 70 million euros. This will facilitate the development and construction of a 1 GW portfolio of onshore wind assets in Spain. Thus, onshore wind power will be deployed throughout Spain with construction and operation between 2023 and 2025. Second, CIP emphasizes the historic nature of the credit to Capital Energy. This transaction is the first investment of the new CI GCF I fund. In addition, the financing will allow Capital Energy to accelerate the construction and deployment of its onshore wind assets. CIP will support its partner in its strategic plan to become an independent power producer. Finally, Nicholas Blach-Petersen, CIP partner and co-manager of CI GCF I,...
