  • Advanced Conversion: Maximising the Potential for Energy from Waste
    One of the most readily-available and viable solutions to help address the challenge of our growing energy needs is Energy-from-Waste (EfW) – which has the potential to take a multitude of waste streams (such as municipal solid waste) and convert them into energy. We look at how modern techniques can make the technology more efficient.
  • Sustainability in bioenergy
    Biomass is a very versatile resource that can be used to produce heat, electricity, transport fuels and a range of chemicals and materials. It is used in all these applications today, and its future demand is estimated to grow substantially.
  • Wind: Does the cost per kilowatt hour outweigh the benefit?”
    In an increasingly difficult economic climate, with consumers facing increasingly high bills for their electricity, there is a clear demand from many international governments for increasing alternative means of energy supply to the grid.

  • 2015 Renewable Cities Conference Agenda
    The Renewable Cities Global Learning Forum is set to take place May 13–15 at the award-winning Four Seasons hotel in Vancouver, Canada. The Forum brings together key city and utility staff with the private sector, civil, society and researchers to participate in a solutions-focused dialogue.
  • 2013 Lahmeyer REMIPEG Report: Hydropower
    In 2013 the cumulated hydropower capacity reached 1,103 GW, with an estimated annual electricity generation of around 3,704 TWh/y. This growth positioned hydropower energy as the highest cumulated installed capacity among renewable energy sources. Intriguing, considering that over the last two years solar and wind power generation actually grew faster than hydropower.
  • 2013 Lahmeyer REMIPEG Report: Wind
    Newly installed wind power capacity decreased by nearly 20% in 2013, generating 35.4 GW compared to 45 GW in 2012. In fact, capacities generated in 2013 fell to levels not seen since 2009. REMIPEG research shows it was the first decline in the segment in past 15 years.
  • 2013 Lahmeyer REMIPEG Report: Solar PV
    The global newly installed PV power capacity reached 36 GW in 2013, a 28% increase over 2012. Another dramatic change: Europe, the prevalent market in the PV sector in 2012, scaled back a bit as Asia assumed the leadership position in the PV sector with 19 GW of newly installed capacity.
  • 2013 Lahmeyer REMIPEG Report: Solar Thermal
    The solar thermal power market is seeing growth after a period of uncertainty. At the end of 2013 there was approximately 3.8 GW of installed CSP capacity globally, and newly installed capacity increased more than 60% to roughly 1.17 GW last year.
