Édora, or how to create a large renewables company without real assets in the heat of the ‘boom’ in the sector

The rush to invest in wind, solar and in a clean energy future It has fueled a sector in which companies emerged until a few months ago completely unknown, and in many cases, with many projects under their arms but nothing real. It is the case of Edora, a company created just two months ago to develop renewable projects, according to the Mercantile Registry, but which is presented to the Spanish market as one of the largest portfolios of projects in southern Europe. Assures that have 5 GW solar and wind on different stages of development in Spain and others 7 GW outside our borderssAlthough sources close to the company have confirmed to Invertia, it does not have any megawatts built, let alone in operation. "The enormous movement that exists in the sector is causing the arrival of specu...

This is the water and electric taxi that consumes 80% less energy than conventional ferries

Candela, a Swedish manufacturer of luxury electric boats, recently introduced its Candela P-12 electric and hydrofoil water taxi. This watercraft measures 8.5 meters and is capable of transporting up to 12 passengers in its cabin that has a panoramic view. This ship has been devised with the aim of replacing traditional ferries that run on diesel fuel. Unlike these vessels, the Candela P-12 employs an electric powertrain, a carbon fiber hull and hydrofoils to operate. Because of this change, creating Candela consumes 80% less energy.The hydrofoil system presented by this new model of the company had already been tested in another of its designs: Candela C-7, a luxury electric lei...

Efficient and sustainable energy: a bet on growth

With an expansion of 4.1 percent in South America during 2020 despite the devastating effects of the pandemic, the renewable energy It is a sustainable alternative that complements other sources of generation to respond to the growing demand for electricity. In that sense, YPF Light It is expanding its installed capacity by 122 MW through different projects, with the aim of complementing the 2360 MW that it already has in operation. The company, which has operations in Buenos Aires, Tucumán, Neuquén and Chubut, generates about 6% of the energy used by Argentina and recently began operating the Manantiales Behr Thermal Power Plant, located 50 km from Comodoro Rivadavia, in the province of Chubut. This new plant complements the energy generated by the Manantiales Behr wind farm through 5...

The future of offshore wind farms: floating turbines that maximize energy production

The General Electric Corporation (GE) is working on a project that could advance the development of futuristic floating wind farms. This proposal could place floating mills in the ocean. Although this idea would mean moving the wind turbines away from the fields, it must be taken into account that the manufacture of floating devices has always been too expensive to be developed on a commercial scale. Building mills that float presents a host of challenges that are not especially cheap.However, GE intends to break some of these problems through advanced controls of the turbines that it is creating with the collaboration of the consultancy Glosten. Thanks to your advances, the comp...

The Canary Islands foresees that 35% of households will generate their own energy with self-consumption in 2030

Related news The Canary Islands electrical systemAs an overseas archipelago, it is more complex than the mainland. There are six systems to be distributed among eight islands and therefore, they are more vulnerable and with greater investment and reinforcement needs. In addition, it plans to advance the renewable generation objectives of the rest of the country and especially in self-consumption. In 2030 it is expected that 35% of families have self-consumption in their homes and up to 70% of public buildings. "REE is key in the Canary Islands as an electricity transmission operator", said Beatriz Corredor, president of Red Eléctrica de España during the Economic Forum 'Canary Islands after Covid-19', held between May 17 and 18 and organized EL ESPAÑOL, Invertia and...

Repsol enters through the big door in the US: buys 40% of Hecate Energy that adds 40 GW renewables

Repsol just rang the bell. It begins its activity in renewables in the US with the purchase of 40% of the development of projects Hecate Energy, an American company that adds 40 GW of renewable and storage projects under development. From them, 16.8 GW correspond to photovoltaic projects in advanced phase and 4.3 GW to batteries for energy storage. The entry into the shareholding of Hecate Energy represents for Repsol its first foray into the renewable market in the United States, one of the largest, most attractive and fastest growing in the world in this sector. Once the conditions to make this purchase effective have been met, Repsol will become a developer and future operator of renewable projects in the country, which has a favorable environment for this business. ...
