TuNur and Hitachi Energy work toward the export of renewables from Tunisia to Europe

TuNur have entered a cooperation agreement with Hitachi Energy to evaluate the solutions for large-scale renewable energy exports across the Mediterranean region using high-voltage direct current (HVDC) technology, helping to foster renewable energy deployment, job creation and sustainable development in Tunisia, and to further decarbonize European grids. HVDC is the most feasible technology for transferring such large amounts of renewable energy over very long distances with minimal power losses.

Tunisia has important targets for renewable energy deployment to support its growing energy demand and decarbonization objectives. In parallel this abundant and infinite energy can be exported to neighbouring load centers, creating a sustainable export industry. TuNur is developing a portfolio of renewable energy projects for the local market and for export markets, including working toward the deployment of additional HVDC solutions in the Mediterranean region. Together the two companies intend to apply their complementary competencies to achieve their vision of a sustainable future – TuNur harnessing its experience of developing large-scale integrated solar and storage projects, while Hitachi Energy contributes its pioneering and market leading HVDC technology.

TuNur Ltd- TuNur Ltd is an independent renewable energy, transmission and green hydrogen development platform, at the epicentre of Europe and Africa. TuNur has an ambitious multi-GW portfolio of solar PV, solar CSP, transmission and green hydrogen projects under development. https://www.tunur.tn/

Hitachi Energy- Hitachi Energy serve customers in the utility, industry and infrastructure sectors with innovative solutions and services across the value chain. Together with customers and partners, we pioneer technologies and enable the digital transformation required to accelerate the energy transition towards a carbon-neutral future. https://www.hitachienergy.com/

IEA Special Report: Renewable electricity growth is accelerating faster than ever worldwide, supporting the emergence of the new global energy economy

The growth of the world’s capacity to generate electricity from solar panels, wind turbines and other renewable technologies is on course to accelerate over the coming years.

By 2026, global renewable electricity capacity is forecast to rise more than 60% from 2020 levels to over 4 800 GW – equivalent to the current total global power capacity of fossil fuels and nuclear combined. Renewables are set to account for almost 95% of the increase in global power capacity through 2026, with solar PV alone providing more than half. The amount of renewable capacity added over the period of 2021 to 2026 is expected to be 50% higher than from 2015 to 2020. This is driven by stronger support from government policies and more ambitious clean energy goals announced before and during the COP26 Climate Change Conference.

One Sun One World One Grid – World’s first transnational solar power grid network launched in Glasgow

The India and UK-led global supergrid program seeks to connect 140 countries to round-the-clock green and renewable power during the COP26 climate conference in Glasgow.

This global supergrid project, known as the Green Grids Initiative – One Sun One World One Grid (GGI-OSOWOG), aims to harness solar energy wherever the sun is shining, ensuring that generated electricity flows to areas that need it most.

As part of its first phase, the project will drive interconnectivity across the Middle East, South Asia, and Southeast Asia. The second will focus on African power pools, while the third will drive global green grids interconnections.

The GGI-OSOWOG will bring together a global coalition of national governments, international financial and technical organizations, legislators, power system operators, and knowledge leaders to accelerate the construction of the new infrastructure needed for a world powered by clean energy.

Skyrocketing energy, carbon prices already make green hydrogen competitive

Antonio Delgado Rigal, chief executive of energy forecasting service AleaSoft, tells pv magazine that skyrocketing gas and electricity prices are putting the global economy under strong pressure, while also opening up huge opportunities for solar, renewables and green hydrogen. He says current gas and electricity prices, along with rising CO2 prices, already make green hydrogen competitive. He therefore calls for immediate action on building new capacity, but acknowledges that a quick end is not yet in sight for rising prices.
