The world is electrifying. The share of electricity in the total energy mix will more than double to 45% by 2050. Renewable energy, led by solar photovoltaic (PV), will supply that growth and replace much of today’s fossil-fuel generated electricity. The reason? Cost.Read more
In recent years, the world has taken major steps towards a lower-carbon energy system. However, we still have some way to go to meet internationally agreed emissions targets for combatting climate change. The good news is that, after years of impressive progress, offshore wind is now ready to become a major contributor to global energy production as well.
There are already emerging success stories in which data-driven modelling has contributed to significant efficiency gains, but for applications where the consequences of wrong decisions are large, many industrial data science or machine learning (ML) projects still fall short of expectations.
With new and innovative technologies developing at record pace, DNV GL’s Michael Wilkinson, Global Segment Leader, Energy Digitalization, gives us some advice on how to see through the digitalization hype and better understand the solutions that can help to transform the electricity sector.
Ben Backwell, CEO of the Global Wind Energy Council, highlights the extraordinary growth in the wind industry globally, and how an industry that was once seen as niche and expensive has been transformed into one that is both mainstream and cost-effective.
India is a growth region for renewable energy. DNV GL talks to Steve Sawyer, Secretary General of the Global Wind Energy Council, about the development of offshore wind in India.
