[Britain and Germany have agreed to cooperate on renewable energy] The UK and Germany have formed a new partnership to strengthen renewable energy generation and bring long-term energy security to both countries. The agreement will provide a blueprint for cooperation in the energy and climate sectors, while removing regulatory barriers to renewable energy, particularly offshore wind interconnection in the North Sea. The agreement, signed by UK Energy Security Minister Claire Coutinho and German Vice Chancellor Robert Habeck, envisages a shared commitment to net-zero emissions and the energy transition. It aims to strengthen and promote energy security at the regional and global levels, including discussions on winter preparedness as well as infrastructure and supply chain security. It also seeks to share best practices on thermal decarbonization, energy efficiency, and net-zero policies and strategies at industrial and building scales. The agreement follows the signing of a joint declaration of intent between the two countries in September 2023 to accelerate the development of low-carbon hydrogen production from renewable energy sources. In the offshore wind sector, the agreement could further boost the UK's ambition to install up to 50GW, including 5GW of floating offshore wind by 2030. Germany aims to install 30GW by 2030.

  • [China will introduce a power storage system to Kazakhstan]
  • According to the press office of the State Grid Management Corporation of Kazakhstan (KEGOC), China Power International Development Co., Ltd. will introduce a power storage system to Kazakhstan. KEGOC pointed out in the news that the implementation agreement of the pilot project for the introduction of energy storage systems in Kazakhstan's unified energy system was signed in Beijing on December 4. "Under the agreement, China Power International Development Co., Ltd. will install a power storage system with a maximum capacity of 5 MW at the Kazakh State Grid Management Joint Stock Company substation," KEGOC said in a statement. According to KEGOC, the project aims to "study the impact of the power storage system on the distribution of the power system when the renewable energy power is incorporated into the unified power system of Kazakhstan."

  • [Mauritania launched a large-scale renewable energy hydrogen storage project]
  • Denmark's GreenGo has launched the Megaton Moon project in Mauritania, a 60 GW solar-wind power facility equipped with 35 GW of green hydrogen capacity. The project developer submitted a development application to the Mauritanian Ministry of Petroleum, Energy and Mines this week. The Megaton Moon project will be built in several phases, with the initial pilot phase expected to be completed in 2028 and the final phase to be completed between 2033 and 2035. In addition, the project will generate more than 70 million tons of desalinated water per year, which will be three times the amount of water consumed by the Megaton facility to produce green hydrogen itself. GreenGo said the project will also use more than 10 TWh of surplus energy to promote the development of large-scale agricultural industries and local supply chains in the desert region. "Developing a project of this scale requires close cooperation with the supply chain and purchasers," said Anders Heine Jensen, CEO of GreenGo. "The scale of the project will attract manufacturers to produce photovoltaic panels, wind turbine blades and electrolytic components locally. We are currently negotiating a Memorandum of Agreement with the manufacturer." Editor/Xu Shengpeng
