In the wake of China’s crackdown on Bitcoin mining, which culminated in a complete ban in September, an exodus of Bitcoin producers seeking new homes was unleashed. In the Nordic countries, many people flocked to green energy sources, while others turned to coal and natural gas in countries such as Kazakhstan, Iran, Kosovo, and the tiny Republic of Abkhazia.
Green hydrogen is defined as hydrogen created through the use of renewable energy to split water into hydrogen and oxygen. This is a completely different path from both the grey and the blue.
As the world moves away from carbon-emitting fossil fuels, a void will be left that must be addressed in order to keep the lights on. Renewable energy is, of course, the answer, but due to its instability and inability to be stored, some governments have turned to nuclear energy, a solution that many have deemed…
President Hage Geingob stated in his New Year’s speech that Namibia will receive N$100 million in concession fees from HYPHEN, the preferred bidder for the development of the country’s first large-scale vertically integrated green hydrogen project in the Tsau/Khaeb national park. He stated that his official visits to the United States and the COP26 United…
Established in 2018, the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA), represents perhaps Africa’s biggest opportunity for the next few decades in its battle against poverty of all forms, energy and infrastructure included.
As a usual practice, in 2020, the WEC prepared the annual World Energy Trilemma Index intending to shed light on the relative energy performance of different countries, which were assessed in relation to energy security, energy equity, and environmental sustainability.
The introduction of the AfCFTA marks a significant turning point for Africa’s regional and continental trading relations. This free trade agreement aims to unite the continent and create more ease in the movement of goods and services to service the continent and benefit the people.
Ahead of the African Energy Week, which will take place from 9-12th November 2021 in Cape Town, the African Energy Chamber (AEC) has announced that it will promote national oil companies (NOCs) as the key drivers of Africa’s energy growth at the Africa Independence Forum.
Can Renewable Energy Be a Solution in the Face of the Looming Energy Crisis in the Eu? Ways the Eu Plans on Dealing with the Current Situation
Europe is currently engulfed in an unfolding energy crisis, raising concerns about Vladimir Putin’s Russia’s role in capitalizing on rising demand, limited supply, and geopolitical unpredictability. The issue of rising gas prices is not unique to the United Kingdom and countries like Spain, Italy, Greece, and France have taken drastic measures in recent weeks to mitigate the impact on consumers.
As the European Commission (EC) explained, the UN High-level Dialogue on Energy (HLDE) is quite unique, because it marks the first UN meeting on energy since the United Nations Conference on New and Renewable Sources of Energy in Nairobi in 1981.
The Energy Sector on the Road to the UN High-Level Dialogue and COP26 in Glasgow Reflecting on the Energy Action Day (2)
As our last article emphasized, the Energy Action Day on 16th September 2021 marked an event, which led up to the UN High-level Dialogue on Energy on 24th September 2021 and the COP26 in Glasgow from 31st October -12th November 2021. Whereas few insights from earlier sessions were provided within our last article, this article serves to give an overview of the remaining sessions at the Energy Action Day
South Africa has an abundance of solar and wind energy sources, yet it is heavily reliant on coal-fired power plants and is one of the world’s major CO2 emitters. Its policies and readiness to adopt renewables in its energy mix have the potential to raise economic efficiency, improve the standard of living of its population and contribute positively to climate change.
