Energy from gas: Taking a whole system approach

The UK gas grid has the potential to store excess electricity in the form of hydrogen, for a greater amount of time than some other forms of energy storage, such as batteries. This hydrogen can then be used in all areas of the energy system producing low emissions fuel for transport, reducing the CO2 emissions from the heating system, reused to generate electricity as well as a greener feedstock for industries such as ammonia and plastics production.

Análisis y propuestas para la descarbonización

El Ministerio de Energía creó un Grupo de Expertos con el cometido de elaborar un informe que sirviese de base para la futura Ley de Transición Energética y Cambio Climático. En el mencionado informe, recientemente publicado, se debaten la totalidad de aspectos a tener en cuenta para el diseño del futuro modelo energético, compatible con el objetivo de descarbonización, acordado en los marcos internacionales.

Global Energy Storage Opportunity 2018

This second annual edition of the Global Energy Storage Opportunity looks at regional markets, applications and technologies as things stand in 2018. What are the business models already in use by leading players and what will the future hold? What regulatory frameworks are working best for enabling this amazing advanced technology and what do the industry, experts and stakeholders want to see going forward? This comprehensive report covers territories including the US and Canada, Japan and China, Europe including Scandinavia and the UK, Africa’s off-grid sector, sustainable transport with Hyperloop in Dubai and much, much more. It was our most-downloaded content last year and this year’s report is even better!

2018 SDG7 Tracking: The Energy Progress Report

This report tracks global, regional and country progress on the four targets of SDG7: energy access (electricity, clean fuels and technologies for cooking), renewable energy and energy efficiency, based on statistical indicators endorsed by the UN. The report updates progress with the latest available data up to 2016 for energy access, and 2015
for clean energy, against a baseline year of 2010.

Using resource efficiency to cut carbon and benefit the economy

Government projections show that UK carbon emissions will significantly exceed legally binding targets for the years 2023 to 2032. To date, government climate policy has focused on emissions from vehicles and heating and powering buildings. But how products are made and consumed has a major impact on their embodied emissions.

This report, based on research carried out by the Centre for Industrial Energy, Materials and Products (CIEMAP) shows that resource efficiency in five key sectors could make a major contribution to meeting future carbon targets.
