  • [New] The Ineos hydrogen business will have its headquarters in the UK and aims to build capacity to produce hydrogen across its network of sites in Europe, in addition to partner sites where hydrogen can accelerate decarbonisation of energy. MSN
  • [New] Viridor has announced plans to invest £1 billion into carbon capture, utilisation and storage technology (CCUS), which it states will accelerate the UK's decarbonisation agenda. Resource Magazine
  • [New] Arguments were made that oil production can not be decarbonized, that the world will not need more oil, and demand will collapse because of the transition to wind, solar and electric vehicles. Financial Post
  • [New] Maritime shipping, like all sectors of the global economy, needs to decarbonise rapidly if we are to solve the climate crisis, and multinational companies will be key actors in catalysing a clean energy transition in shipping. Drapers
  • [New] Well-situated seven - G7 members are well placed to fully decarbonise their electricity supply by 2035, which would accelerate the technological advances and infrastructure rollouts needed to lead global energy markets towards net zero emissions by 2050. carbon-pulse
  • [New] An exciting new solar material called organic-inorganic halide perovskites could one day help the U.S. achieve its solar ambitions and decarbonize the power grid. Knowridge Science Report
  • [New] Preparing sites for key infrastructure decisions in the mid-2020s: For most sites, more clarity on optimal decarbonisation options depends on key infrastructure decisions, such as the future of hydrogen in the gas grid by 2026. UK Government
  • [New] Decarbonising fuel supply and growth of the hydrogen sector will regenerate communities and open up new employment opportunities right around the UK. UK Government
  • [New] Flexibility from technologies such as energy storage, smart and bidirectional charging of electric vehicles, flexible heating systems, and interconnection could save up to £10 billion per year by 2050 by reducing the amount of generation and network needed to decarbonise. UK Government
  • [New] Decisions in 2026 around hydrogen's role in providing heat in buildings will have a substantial impact on relative hydrogen and electricity demands - Figure 14 shows a scenario where hydrogen is not used to heat buildings, which is predominantly decarbonised via electrification through heat pumps. UK Government
  • [New] Green bonds will play an increasingly important role in the financing needed for the decarbonisation of our society, as part of the Sustainable Europe Investment Plan. EUR-Lex
  • [New] Given the restriction on the use of offsets and that emissions from electricity generation are expected to be negative beyond 2040, BECCS is expected to play a role in the decarbonisation of the power sector. Climate Action 100+
  • [New] Over the next decades we will witness a strong decarbonisation of the global energy sector, driven by clean power generation, affordable storage solutions and the deployment of the newest technologies driving down energy consumption. Funds Europe
  • [New] Decarbonization of the global economy starts with strong and robust corporate clean energy and climate goals, which companies use to create transition plans that determine how companies will achieve their goals. Ceres
  • [New] A decarbonisation dash will instead accelerate economic growth, lifting global GDP by an extra 0.4 pc annually over the next decade. The Telegraph
  • [New] Bruce Power yesterday announced the achievement of a new site generation peak and set a goal of achieving a site peak of 7000 MW by 2030 as it implements its Made in Ontario post-pandemic economic recovery plan. World Nuclear News
  • [New] Today, 23 states have plans to decarbonize either their power sectors or their entire economies by at least 80% by 2050, and many utilities are also establishing goals that are more ambitious than their respective state-level targets. McKinsey & Company
  • [New] As a major hydrocarbon producer, Russia is seeking to capitalize on its current infrastructure and technical strengths to manage the substantial risks it faces as many of its customers work to decarbonize their economies. CSIS
  • [New] Much more investment in low-carbon generation is needed now if we are to meet both the growth in electrification - 2 to 3 times current capacity required by 2050 - and at the same time, decarbonizing electricity generation. Electrek
  • [New] The average energy efficiency of building engineering equipment such as refrigeration systems will be needed to double by 2030 if ambitions to decarbonise economies by 2050 are to be realised. Refrigeration and Air Conditioning
  • While the Australian Government prevaricates on net-zero carbon emissions, all states and territories have committed to net zero by 2050, and the majority of Australians support a range of decarbonisation policies. Croakey
