Objectives
Abstract The Biomass to Power with CCS Phase 1 project consisted of four work packages:
  • WP1: Landscape review of current developments;
  • WP2: High Level Engineering Study (down-selecting from 24 to 8 Biomass to Power with CCS technologies);
  • WP3: Parameterised Sub-System Models development; and
  • WP4: Technology benchmarking and recommendation report. Reports generally follow this coding.
We would suggest that you do not read any of the earlier deliverables in isolation as some assumptions in the reports were shown to be invalid. We would recommend that you read the project executive summaries as they provide a good summary of the overall conclusions. This work demonstrated the potential value of Biomass to Power with CCS technologies as a family, but it was clear at the time of the project, that the individual technologies were insufficiently mature to be able to ‘pick a winner’, due to the uncertainties around cost and performance associated with lower Technology Readiness Levels (TRLs).

PRESS RELEASE: Government deployment stats fail to accurately capture >50kW PV systems - Jack Dobson-Smith
The STA continues to call on the Government to address serious flaws in the accuracy of its photovoltaic deployment data following the publication of its latest statistics, which state that solar deployment in 2019 was down by over 60MW compared to 2018, suggesting the slowest year for the industry since 2010. [1] However, the statistics fail to accurately capture PV systems sized above 50kW, with no update to the ‘50 kW to ≤ 5 MW’ category since March 2019, and only one large-scale site added to ‘> 25 MW’ category in 2019, a 34.7MWp array completed in December by GRIDSERVE. ... \nRead More\nThe post PRESS RELEASE: Government deployment stats fail to accurately capture >50kW PV systems appeared first on Solar Trade Association.

Moving hydrogen from hype to hope - William Todts
\n \n “I see a pivotal role for hydrogen,” in Europe’s efforts to achieve its climate goals, said Frans Timmermans. And up jumped the crowd in a rare standing ovation for a climate commissioner. Hydrogen is the talk of the town and the Commission is widely expected to make it a big priority in its green industrial strategy. So, are we about to enter the golden age for hydrogen and - if so - what does it mean for transport? \n\n \n\n\n \n \n \n\nRelated Environmental IssueClimate Change and EnergyRelated Transport ModeAviationCarsFreightFuelsInfrastructureLorriesShippingRelated Policy AreaInvestmentStandards

PRESS RELEASE: Solar industry calls for net zero Budget - Jack Dobson-Smith
The STA is calling on the government to deliver a budget that unlocks the potential of solar energy in the UK and empowers the transition to net zero greenhouse gas emissions. Exemption for solar from business rates, fair tax treatment, zero-interest loans for green home improvements and a commitment to procure renewable energy for the civic estate are the key recommendations made to the Treasury in the association’s budget representation. [1] Additionally, a recommendation that the Government hold regular CfD auctions which include solar was adopted as policy last week. [2] STA Chief Executive said: “This government has begun to ... \nRead More\nThe post PRESS RELEASE: Solar industry calls for net zero Budget appeared first on Solar Trade Association.
