Forbes: World's Largest Solar Power Plant Switched On (Sadly, not in the US)


The Noor Abu Dhabi project

Forbes 29 JUN 2019

This is a headline you may well read more than once in the coming years.

As of today, the Noor Abu Dhabi project with a total capacity of 1,177MW is the largest operational single site solar project in the world. It’s important to make the distinction between this and a ‘solar park’. These are essentially areas of land ear-marked for solar and often with ready-to-go grid connections, where multiple projects will be built under the same banner, but developed and financed individually.

The Noor Abu Dhabi project, which is not state-financed is the work of a consortium that includes Abu Dhabi Power Corporation, Japan’s Marubeni Corp and Chinese solar manufacturer Jinko Solar.

The $870 million project was the result of a competitive tender process that will see electricity from the site sold to the Emirates Water and Electricity Company (EWEC) for around 2.4 cents per kWh, a record at the time of the auction and a record for any completed solar project. It was built by the Indian firm Sterling & Wilson with nearly 3000 people working on site during the peak of activity.

"Noor Abu Dhabi will generate renewable energy and will enable us to improve the use of our natural resources,” said Othman Jumaa Al Ali, CEO, EWEC. “The fact that a project of such scale has been successfully completed on time and on budget highlights our commitment to ensuring sustainable energy for the future and it is a true testament of the Emirate’s delivery capabilities to execute world-class energy projects.... more: https://www.forbes.com/sites/johnparnell/2019/06/29/worlds-largest-solar-power-plant-switched-on/#5b739f1e161a

Good thing China mass produced solar panels, eh? The US could have owned THIS industry but Saudi Arabian Oil was much more important.

Hey Hydrogen Scholars: Let's do some MATHS!!!

If solar energy costs 2.4 Cents per kWh, how much does a Kilogram of Hydrogen cost?

Hint: ~50 kWh = 1 Kg H2

328 MW-DC Mount Signal Solar Farm in Calexico, California

PV Magazine, 28 JUN 2019

Los Angeles seeks record setting solar power price under 2¢/kWh

The city’s municipal utility is readying a 25-year power purchase agreement for 400 MWac of solar power at 1.997¢/kWh along with 200 MW / 800 MWh of energy storage at 1.3¢/kWh.

he Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP) Board of Commissioners was presented with the Eland Solar & Storage Center in Kern County, California, from an LADWP internal team on June 18, 2019.

The team told the commissioners that on July 23, they plan to seek approval of a 25-year power purchase agreement (PPA) priced at 1.997¢/kWh for 400 MWac / 530 MWdc of solar electricity delivered at time of generation plus 1.3¢/kWh for the excess electricity later delivered from a co-located 100 MW / 200 MWh (and maybe double’d in the second phase) energy storage system.




Per an email from 8minute, the project will be built in two 200 MWac solar phases. There is no price escalator, and the solar portion is a record low price for the United States. It even beats out the current U.S. pricing leader – 8minute’s 2.375¢/kWh from the 300 MW Eagle Shadow Mountain solar project.... more: https://pv-magazine-usa.com/2019/06/28/los-angeles-seeks-record-setting-solar-power-price-under-2¢-kwh/

Hey Hydrogen Scholars: Let's do some MORE MATHS!!!

If solar energy costs 0.02 Cents per kWh, how much does a Kilogram of Hydrogen cost?

Hint: ~50 kWh = 1 Kg H2

CHEAP GREEN DOMESTICALLY PRODUCED ENERGY. Who could have a problem with that? Maybe EXXON? Standard Oil?


If only there was a way to store Solar Energy so that the solar farms wouldn't have to be curtailed when there's too much energy for the grid......

Wait...

International Energy Agency: The Future of Hydrogen- a 203 page report with graphs, numbers, etc



The Future of Hydrogen
Seizing today’s opportunities
14 June 2019

At the request of the government of Japan under its G20 presidency, the International Energy Agency (IEA) has produced this landmark report to analyse the current state of play for hydrogen and to offer guidance on its future development.

The report finds that clean hydrogen is currently enjoying unprecedented political and business momentum, with the number of policies and projects around the world expanding rapidly. It concludes that now is the time to scale up technologies and bring down costs to allow hydrogen to become widely used. The pragmatic and actionable recommendations to governments and industry that are provided will make it possible to take full advantage of this increasing momentum.

Foreword

This is a critical year for hydrogen. It is enjoying unprecedented momentum around the world
and could finally be set on a path to fulfil its longstanding potential as a clean energy solution.
To seize this opportunity, governments and companies need to be taking ambitious and realworld
actions now. We are very grateful to the government of Japan for its request under its
presidency of the G20 that the International Energy Agency (IEA) prepare this important and
timely report.

Our study provides an extensive and independent assessment of hydrogen that lays out where
things stand now; the ways in which hydrogen can help to achieve a clean, secure and
affordable energy future; and how we can go about realising its potential. To help to get things
moving, we have identified the most promising immediate opportunities to provide a
springboard for the future.

As the world’s leading energy authority covering all fuels and all technologies, the IEA is ideally
placed to help to shape global policy on hydrogen. The rigorous analysis in this report was
conducted in close collaboration with governments, industry and academia.

This study on hydrogen is part of a comprehensive approach the IEA is taking to the global
energy system. Last month, we published a report on the role of nuclear power in a clean
energy system. We are also holding various high-level meetings to underscore the critical
elements needed for a sustainable energy future – including a ministerial conference in Dublin
this month on energy efficiency and another ministerial on systems integration of renewables in
Berlin in October 2019.

I very much hope our report on hydrogen will inform discussions and decisions among G20
countries, as well as those among other governments and companies across the world. I hope it
will help to translate hydrogen’s current momentum into real-world action that sets hydrogen
firmly on the path to becoming a significant enabler of a clean, secure and affordable energy
future.

Beyond this report, the IEA will remain focused on hydrogen, further expanding our expertise in
order to monitor progress and provide guidance on technologies, policies and market design.
We will continue to work closely with governments and all other stakeholders to support your
efforts to make the most out of hydrogen’s huge potential.
The IEA looks forward to continuing this journey together.

In an article published in Forbes magazine in 2009, T. Boone Pickens, American financier and Chairman and CEO of BP Capital, selected Birol as number four of seven most influential people in the world's energy sector. According to oil tycoon turned wind advocate Pickens, "When he says things like, 'the world would need to find the equivalent of four times the crude oil reserves now held by Saudi Arabia to maintain current production plus six Saudi Arabias if it is to keep up with the expected increase in demand between now and 2030,' the world sits up and takes notice. https://www.forbes.com/2009/11/09/boone-pickens-oil-leadership-power-09-energy_slide.html#202d3b6a62f5

China's solar installations could hit 50GW in 2020



PV Market research firm, PV InfoLink has forecasted demand in China could reach 50GW in 2020, despite its forecast of demand in 2019, being lower than expected at 33.6GW.

PV InfoLink expects China’s PV installation boom to start ramping in the fourth quarter of 2019 as new range grid parity support mechanisms come into effective operation. A combination, dominated by ‘Bidding Projects’ and ‘Grid Parity’ projects in the fourth quarter is expected to result in installations topping 15.5GW, up from a forecasted 9.6GW in the third quarter of 2019... https://www.pv-tech.org/news/50874

In the future, do you think there will be MORE excess renewable energy or LESS excess renewable energy?

Hydrogen Powered Buses Are Happening On Hawaii Island


H2 Bus with Energy Exporter can power commercial buildings for many hours in a disaster

(BIVN) – Hydrogen-powered vehicles are on the way to Hawaiʻi Island.

On June 18, the Hawaiʻi County Council Committee on Public Works and Mass Transit was given a presentation by the Department of Research and Development regarding plans to utilize electric and/or hydrogen buses.

Puna Councilmember Matt Kanealiʻi-Kleinfelder, who requested the update, said he would like to see the emerging technology deployed as a step towards a cleaner, greener and sustainable island society.



“We started this project here for the Big Island almost ten years ago,” said Mitch Ewan, Hydrogen Systems Program Manager for the Hawaiʻi Natural Energy Institute. “We’re now at NELHA. We’re maybe weeks away from our hydrogen station actually coming online. Our first bus is over on Oʻahu, just going through its final commissioning. It’s a 29 passenger, fuel-cell hybrid bus. Brand new. Looks awesome. So, as soon as my hydrogen station is up and running, we’ll bring the bus over here and then we’ll do final commissioning with some of our contractors, just making sure all our software and communications equipment is working. So, we’re basically ready to go.”

Riley Saito, the Energy Specialist for the Hawaiʻi County Department of Research and Development, gave the presentation on Hele-On Zero Emission Buses, or “ZEBs”.

Saito first talked about pilot Battery Electric Bus (BEB) project, which in December 2018 concluded that BEBs would best be deployed on shorter routes, and that island topology is a major factor on the life of the battery. The County is slated to get 3 Battery Electric Buses in early 2021.... more: https://www.bigislandvideonews.com/2019/06/24/video-hydrogen-powered-buses-are-happening-on-hawaii-island/
