Description Ethiopia is set to receive US $1.8bn from the State Grid Corporation of China to improve electricity transmission and distribution networks across the country. Ethiopia’s Prime Minister, Abiy Ahmed who signed the agreement China Export and Credit Insurance Corporation (Sinosure) said the government has set out a plan to construct 9,000km of distribution lines and 19,600km of transmission line. “Ethiopia has made the development of its estimated 60GW of renewable energy a cornerstone of its 15-year Growth and Transformation Plan. The country now has about 4.5GW of installed capacity for a population of more than 100 million whose demand for power is growing at about 30% a year,” said the Prime Minister. Also Read:US $170m Power transmission projects in Nigeria kicks off Access to electricity Ethiopia plans to increase its current 4,300 MW electricity generation capacity to 17,300 MW by 2025, with power generation projects in hydro, wind, geothermal and biomass sectors. At present, 30% of the country has access to electricity and, in areas where there is grid coverage, only 60% of households are connected. Lack of funds and foreign debts according to Mr. Abiy Ahmed is putting a brake on infrastructure investment such as construction of Ethiopia’s electrified railway between Awash and Hara Gebeya which has made little progress in the past nine months due to lack of funds. Dagmawit Moges, the transport minister, told the Ethiopian parliament that the construction of the project, which stretches from the eastern to the northern part of the country, has only managed to reach 54% completion over the past five years. Cancelling accumulated debts However, a total of 17 projects were unveiled by the Ethiopian government late 2018, out of which three were road construction projects while the remaining 14 were power supply projects. Spokesperson of the Ethiopian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Nebiat Getachew acknowledged that Ethiopia and China already enjoy multifaceted ties, which are expected to be further strengthened with the introduction of new partnerships. During the Prime Minister Abiy’s visit, China agreed to cancel all interest accumulated from its debts, estimated at between US $12bn and US $20bn. The power project, which is involving eight major cities, will mainly benefit the grid system of the Ethiopian capital, Addis Ababa. The seven other cities are Jimma, Dire Dawa, Bahir Dar, Mekele, Hawassa, Adama and Dessie.

Description Nigeria is set to receive US $21m from the United Kingdom and Africa Enterprise Challenge Fund (AECF) to support the deployment of solar generated electricity small businesses in the country. The funds will provide a mix of interest free loans and repayable grants and technical assistance to private sector operators in the solar business. It will be deployed through AECF’s Renewable Energy and Adaptation to Climate Technology (REACT) Household Solar Round Two Competition. “Renewable sources of energy provide just 18% of Africa’s current power generating capacity, therefore developing off grid alternatives could create many more opportunities and transform millions of lives,” said the Chief Executive Officer of AECF, Daniel Ohonde. Also Read:34 MW Ngonye project in Zambia starts operations AECF funds The funding window was also part of AECF’s Africa Clean Energy Programme (ACE) which seeks to increase the supply of household solar systems to rural markets at affordable costs, facilitated through innovative financing; operating and distribution models such as the PAYGO and micro-financed solar power interventions. Solar power operators in Ethiopia, Ghana, Senegal and Somalia are other countries set to benefit from AECF funds. The countries will be allowed to access the funds as long as they meet the requirements spelt out by AECF. Up to 25 solar-based businesses or operators from these countries would be able to access the fund on a matching grant basis. “The additional funding will enable AECF to continue investing in private sector companies to deliver business models which accelerate access to trans formative solar home systems to rural markets in sub-Saharan Africa,” said Mr. Daniel. The REACT programme has so far contributed to the generation of 29.7MW of clean electricity in countries it has supported, while reducing their carbon emission by over one million tonne of carbon dioxide equivalent (tCo2e) cumulatively.

Description The Ngonye Solar photovaltic (PV) plant in Zambia has started operations and has been connected to the national grid. Enel Green Power (EGP), a subsidiary of Italian power giant Enel, confirmed the reports. The Ngonye project is located in Lusaka South,a Multi-Facility Economic Zone in the country’s south. It is the second to be constructed in Zambia as part of the World Bank Group’s Scaling Solar programme, that offers a “best-in-class” framework for the procurement of solar projects from independent power producers (IPPs). The 54 MW Bangweulu solar PV station was the first plant to be commissioned under the scheme. The station was developed by French renewable-energy company Neoen in North-eastern Zambia. Also Read:US firm to build 900MW solar plant in Zimbabwe Ngonye Solar photovaltic (PV) plant The project which is Enel’s first PV project in Zambia was developed under the Scaling Solar programme, which is driving large-scale PV adoption in African states such as Senegal and Madagascar, among others. Zambia’s Scaling Solar programme has been carried out by Zambia’s Industrial Development Corporation (IDC), which awarded the project to EGP in June 2016. The plant is owned by a special purpose vehicle 80% held by EGP and 20% by IDC. The facility, constructed at a cost of US $40m is expected to produce about 70GWh of electricity yearly which will help the country diversify its energy mix to reduce over reliance on hydroelectricity. Enel’s project will sell its energy to the country’s state-owned utility ZESCO through a 25-year power purchase agreement. The Zambian Government has set a target of installing up to 600 MW of solar PV capacity in the next two to three years. Already the government has launched a series of initiatives to promote development of renewable.

Description The energy company plans to build the “HySynGas” project in the Brunsbüttel Industrial Park with ARGE Netz and MAN Energy Solutions. The consortium wants to establish a power-to-gas hub for cross-sector decarbonization in northern Germany. APRIL 4, 2019 SANDRA ENKHARDT UTILITY SCALE STORAGE GERMANY Green hydrogen can significantly contribute to the decarbonisation of the transport sector. Image: Stadtwerke Münster ShareIcon FacebookIcon TwitterIcon LinkedInIcon Google PlusIcon WhatsAppIcon Email from pv magazine Germany ARGE Netz, MAN Energy Solutions, and Vattenfall announced a plan on Thursday to set up a large-scale power-to-gas project in an industrial park in Brunsbüttel, northern Germany. The facility will produce green hydrogen and synthetic gases (SNG) from electricity generated by nearby solar and wind plants. It is expected that the green hydrogen will contribute to cross-sectoral decarbonization. It could be used as fuel for buses or ships, as well as in gas power plants and other industrial sectors. The aim of the partnership is to establish a unique power-to-gas hub for cross-sectoral decarbonization in northern Germany, Vattenfall said in a statement. The partner companies have also applied for funding from the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy to build a related R&D laboratory. The decision to build the project in the Brunsbüttel Industrial Park was made deliberately. And it will likely secure and expand the technological leadership of the German region of Schleswig-Holstein in the power-to-gas sector, said Stephan Frense, managing director of ARGE Netz. The location is also ideal because large volumes of renewable energy are readily available. The aim is to increase the use of renewable energy and reduce CO2 emissions in a range of sectors with green hydrogen. “The project is a central building block for a holistic energy transition and at the same time lays the foundation for the power-to-gas hub in northern Germany,” said Frense. The consortium has already secured a number of well-known customers, such as the Volkswagen Group, various logistics firms, municipal utilities and other local companies. “We also link an industrial policy claim to the innovation project. Germany must strengthen its technological leadership in power-to-gas and the export of innovative climate technology,” said Uwe Lauber, CEO of MAN Energy Solutions. “While the hydrogen in the region is to be used, we want to feed the SNG into the German natural gas grid and thus make it available throughout Germany.” Lauber also noted plans under the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy to build an LNG terminal in Brunsbüttel. According to Oliver Weinmann, managing director of Vattenfall Europe Innovation GmbH, “the technology is ready for use and the companies want to invest in the green energy future.” He said that an electrolyzer for the production of green hydrogen with at least 50 MW of capacity will be built at the industrial park, as well as facilities for the production of synthetic methane, with a capacity of at least 40 tonnes per day. In Rotterdam, the Gigawatt Elektrolysefabriek project was also recently launched. The researchers from that project aim to start generating green hydrogen at the the gigawatt scale from 2025.

Description ShareIcon FacebookIcon TwitterIcon LinkedInIcon Google PlusIcon WhatsAppIcon Email Dutch renewable energy developer Groenleven is planning to build Europe’s largest floating PV project to date, a 48 MW installation at a sand extraction site owned by Kremer Zand and Grind. Groenleven said the site, near Emmen in the Drenthe province of the northeastern Netherlands, is no longer in use and solar panels will be deployed on extraction ponds and other inland waterways. To make room for the floating plant, Kremer Zand and Grind will relocate its sand extraction and drying equipment from Emmen to other industrial areas. The company will consume some of the energy produced by the array with the rest of it exported locally. No power purchase agreement details were released by the company in its announcement of the project. Huge potential The Dutch Foundation for Applied Water Research – STOWA – recently published guidelines and tools for companies interested in developing floating PV projects across the water-rich Netherlands. The country has enormous floating PV potential as it has approximately 52,000 hectares of shallow inland water. Water authority the Rijkswaterstaat is planning to install floating PV at its premises. In 2017, the agency said it intended to develop the surface of the ?sselmeer, a shallow, 1,100 km² artificial lake in the central Netherlands bordering the province of Flevoland. In January 2018, a Dutch consortium backed by national enterprise agency the RVO announced a project aimed at developing a flexible design for floating solar panels on inland waters. The country’s first floating solar project was announced in September 2017.

Description Although details are vague, the Vice Ministry of Alternative Energies is reportedly developing the country’s first medium sized projects to be connected to the national grid. It is also planning to implement distributed generation projects ranging in size from 1.5 MW to 3 MW in the crisis-torn nation. APRIL 11, 2019 EMILIANO BELLINI MARKETS POLICY UTILITY-SCALE PV VENEZUELA Renewable energy has struggled to establish itself amid Venezuela’s much-publicized travails. Image: Joseph Remedor/Flickr ShareIcon FacebookIcon TwitterIcon LinkedInIcon Google PlusIcon WhatsAppIcon Email Basew Asfur, energy expert and, in his words, “constituent of Venezuela”, has announced the government of the crisis-hit country is considering the construction of wind, solar and hydroelectric projects on a medium scale to strengthen its National Electric System. The news was announced in a statement by the Venezuelan Television Corporation and Asfur said in a televised interview a wind project is being developed in the state of Falcón and solar energy will also be part of the country’s energy mix. The energy analyst spoke of a renewed boost for Venezuelan solar, despite the fact PV at anything above household level is limited, if not non-existent in the country. “We are in a tropical area where you can take more advantage of the solar source, these projects are elaborated and there is the Vice-Ministry of Alternative Energies to which the necessary support must be given,” said Asfur, without elaborating further on projects. The energy expert also mentioned the possibility of distributed generation renewables of between 1.5 MW and 3 MW capacity to boost national industry. Embattled president Nicolás Maduro – who is struggling to retain his grip on power in the face of mass demonstrations and widespread global recognition of his self-appointed presidential rival Juan Guaidó – expressed a desire to promote the solar industry as far back as his 2013 election year. Since then, however, only small, off-grid PV projects in isolated regions have been carried out. Most of the systems were installed under the “Sembrando Luz” – sowing light – program, which depends on the Fundación para el Desarrollo del Servicio Eléctrico. The program was founded in 2005 by Venezuela’s Bolivarian government “within the framework of the policies of social inclusion and diversification of energy sources, promoted through the VI Joint Commission of [the] Cuba-Venezuela Comprehensive Cooperation Agreement and aimed at serving isolated communities”. Solar hopes stalled In 2014, the Venezuelan government said it wanted to install 523 MW of renewable energy capacity in the period up to this year, 478 MW of it wind projects. Since then, however, very few megawatts have seen the light of day. The nation’s financial and political difficulties have undoubtedly contributed to the slow progress of clean energy in a country already hugely dependent on cheap and abundant oil. This year the Venezuelan grid has suffered four electrical blackouts. The first occurred on March 7 and was the largest in the nation’s history, causing power outages in all 24 states and reaching ??Boa Vista, in Brazil. The cause of the blackouts continues to be difficult to identify since the government attributed them to U.S. sabotage. State power company the Corporación Eléctrica Nacional and its ageing electricity network may be a likelier culprit. A cryptoplan The Maduro government in March announced a plan to use the El Petro cryptocurrency to finance solar projects in member states of the Petrocaribe alliance of Caribbean states which purchase oil on favorable terms from their South American neighbor. Venezuelan chancellor Jorge Arreaza at the time tweeted: “At the Summit of the International Solar Alliance, chancellor Arreaza announces that the Pdte @NicolasMaduro launches the initiative to finance, through the petro, projects for solar energy. Will have all the logistics and capabilities of Petrocaribe.” Details of the plan, however, remain unknown. Around 80% of the country’s electric demand is met by the 10 GW Simón Bolívar Hydroelectric Plant at Lake Guri, in Bolívar state.
