The report on the state of the global energy transition, published by the World Economic Forum, shows that as the world faces its most severe energy crisis since the 1970s, urgent action is needed by both the private and public sectors to ensure a flexible transition. According to the Supporting, an Effective Energy Transition 2022 report, countries’ urgency to accelerate a holistic energy transition is reinforced by high fuel prices, commodity scarcity, insufficient progress in meeting climate goals, and slow progress in energy justice and access.

It details critical recommendations for governments, businesses, consumers, and other stakeholders on how to advance the energy transition, based on 10 years of the Energy Transition Index, an annual country benchmarking report produced in collaboration with Accenture.

To accelerate the transition to cleaner energy supply and demand, the report says, more countries must make binding climate commitments, establish long-term visions for local and regional energy systems, attract private sector investors for decarbonization projects, and help consumers and the workforce adapt.

Roberto Bocca, Head of Energy, Materials, and Infrastructure at the World Economic Forum, said: “Countries are at risk of future events that increase the disruption of their energy supply chains when the window to avert the worst consequences of climate change is rapidly closing. While there are difficult decisions to be made to align energy security, sustainability, and affordability imperatives in the short term, now is the time to act.” said.

The report also reveals the structural barriers to balancing energy affordability, security, and availability with sustainability. This is because of the post-pandemic increase in energy demand resulting from the war in Ukraine, fuel supply bottlenecks, inflationary pressures, and combined shocks to the energy system from restructured energy supply chains.

To meet this challenge, countries must pursue diversification on two fronts, not only in the local energy mix in the long run but also in the short run, considering their fuels and energy suppliers. The report states that 11 of 34 countries with advanced economies rely on just three trading partners for more than 70 percent of their fuel imports.

Espen Mehlum, Head of the World Economic Forum’s Energy, Materials and Infrastructure Benchmarking Program, said: “The current energy crisis demonstrates how important energy is to people and the economy. Tackling the structural risks that have become apparent as we build momentum in climate action is now critical. Success will largely depend on policy and investments. Prioritizing energy efficiency and increasing investment in clean energy infrastructure, renewables, clean hydrogen, and new nuclear capacity can strengthen the resilience of the energy system and will be a win-win for reducing emissions.” made the statement.

In Portugal, one of the leading countries of the European Union in renewable energy, electricity generation from renewable sources exceeded the country’s total electricity consumption in March.

Heavy rainy and windy weather conditions in the country boosted production at hydroelectric and wind farms last month, according to data from the Portuguese Energy Infrastructure Company (REN).

The amount of electricity produced from renewable sources in Portugal reached 4 billion 812 million kilowatt-hours in March. In the month in question, a total of 4 billion 647 million kilowatt-hours of electricity was consumed in the country. Thus, all of the electricity consumed in the country last month was met from renewable energy.

70 hours of continuous renewable energy generation

In the process that started in Portugal on March 9, all consumption was met from renewable energy sources continuously for 70 hours and no emissions were produced.

On the other hand, according to the Portuguese Sustainable Terrestrial System Association, 1.8 million tons of carbon dioxide emissions were prevented in March thanks to renewable energy production in the country. It has been reported that this amount corresponds to an allowance of 21 million euros in the carbon market.

In addition, in the first quarter of the year, renewable energy production in Portugal met 61 percent of total consumption. Of this amount, 31% was wind, 24% hydroelectric, 5% biomass, and 1% solar power plants.

Portugal met its total consumption from renewable energy sources completely and uninterruptedly for 107 hours in 2016. Check more details on our Facebook page.

Importance of Training Before Renewable Energy Projects

Renewable energy is a source of inexhaustible and clean energy. It has the potential to be used anywhere on the planet. The costs for renewable energy has been decreasing at a sustainable rate unlike the energy from fossil fuels. With the growing importance of the renewable energy market there has been an increase in participation in renewable energy courses.

There are many high school and university degrees, trade unions, local and non-governmental organizations as well as many renewable energy companies offering relevant courses and training. These courses usually involve introductory courses explaining the basics of renewable energy. They focus on the various renewable technologies including, solar, wind, biomass etc…, with topics includes; the design, integration, installation, maintenance, operation and sales.

These courses enable participants to:

  • Choose the best support mechanism applicable to the renewable energy project
  • Gather and prepare sufficient data for the feasibility study of a renewable energy project
  • Define the necessary steps for the operations and management of the project
  • Deal with the various stakeholders involved in the project
  • Make high quality decisions and judgement
  • Understand the legal and regulatory frameworks
  • Understand the risks associated with renewable projects
  • Share the best practices for that each project

The importance of these trainings lies in increasing the effectiveness of investment operations, technical assistance and analytical work resulting in better governmental policies and better advice to clients. Diversified training programs will mean qualified personnel who will be able to work with the latest scientific and technological developments. This is important for them to be able to better identify the most appropriate utilization and application of renewable energy projects.

One of the main barriers to development of renewable energy sector is due to the unavailability of technology, lack of infrastructure and trained personnel. Knowledge is one of the key factors for further development of the renewable energy sector. Only through proper trainings can people understand the necessary know how to satisfy the increasing demand for the expertise in this market.

Given that the renewable energy sector is in its early stages of development, the number of personnel involved varies. For the different technologies in the renewable sector there is a huge variation in activity worldwide. There is a widespread skill shortage of qualified technicians, engineers, sales specialists, auditors and properly trained personnel. Many universities are redesigning their renewable energy courses to better reflect the increase in interest. For people already working in the renewable sector, companies provide them with regular trainings to keep them up to date.

ENERGCO is one of the leading global organizations offering training courses on renewable energy. They work with the following public and private sectors:

  • Ministries working for climate protection at a national level
  • Regional or local administration
  • Policy makers at a state or subnational level
  • Financial and research institutions
  • Climate or energy related agencies

The solar investment tax credit (ITC) is one of the most lucrative ways to reduce the investment costs of your solar installation, but in order to maximize this incentive, it’s important to include solar power in your 2019 planning. Follow this guide to ensure your business is able to take advantage of the ITC before it starts to ramp down.

Your business falls into one of these eligible sectors

  • Commercial
  • Industrial
  • Agricultural
  • Other sectors can take advantage indirectly

You installed eligible solar technology

There are a variety of eligible renewable energy technologies – one of them is a solar photovoltaic (solar PV) system that uses solar energy to generate electricity for your business.

Your installed solar equipment meets performance and quality standards

Professional installation by Centrica Business Solutions using highest-quality Tier 1 components will ensure you meet this criteria for the ITC.

You meet usage guidelines

In general, the original use of the system must begin with you (the taxpayer), or the system must be constructed by the taxpayer using a licensed and professional solar installer.

You own your solar energy system

Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) and leased solar systems do not qualify. Instead, the owner of the system monetizes the ITC and passes the savings along to your business. 

You must complete IRS Tax Form 3468

When you file your yearly federal tax return, you take a dollar-for-dollar credit for what your business would have otherwise owed in taxes. If you don’t have enough tax liability to claim the entire credit in one year, you can roll over the remaining credits into future years. If you have any questions about how going solar may impact your individual tax situation, we recommend that you consult with a tax professional.

You must act now to claim the full 30%

The ITC is currently 30% of your system cost. You must begin construction of your system by December 31, 2019 to qualify for the 30%. Beginning in 2020, the ITC will ramp down:

  • 2020: 26%
  • 2021: 22%
  • 2022 onwards: 10%
