Shift to port electrification: helping to meet zero emissions target
Harbours and ports’ transition to full electrification will be a key contributor in reducing shipping’s output of greenhouse gases, said Vattenfall. Despite transporting around 80% of global trade, shipping accounts for a modest three percent of global greenhouse gas emissions.
Croatia aim for 12% growth in renewable capacity
Croatia has adopted renewable auctions in a bid to increase the share of renewables in its power mix, according to GlobalData. These auctions are expected to help increase the country’s installed renewable power capacity (excluding hydropower) from 1 gigawatt in 2020 to 3.2 gigawatts in 2030, growing at a remarkable CAGR of 12%.
Photovoltaic manufacturer NexWafe announces new lead investor

Production of 70,000 tonnes of biomass pellets per year
The EU-funded Arbaflame project is aiming to produce 70,000 tonnes biomass-based combustibles per year to enable clean power generation. The biomass pellets are made of wood and can be used as a 100% sustainable alternative to coal in power plants to produce carbon-neutral power.
Self-produced solar energy sharing amongst neighbours
In order to meet Europe's ambitious climate targets, greenhouse gas emissions must be drastically reduced by 2030. To achieve this, around 28 million multi-family houses with over 80 million households must be equipped with photovoltaics. Accordingly, Infineon has introduced a solar power sharing technology.
Fujitsu sources 100% of energy needs for HQ from renewables
