Decarbonized operations – SKF’s sustainability goals and measures
Reducing carbon emissions to limit global warming is the responsibility and duty of every organization and enterprise on this planet. SKF has been stepping up to the plate since the 80s and recently published an updated report portraying its sustainability progress.
Missing the 1.5°C target? – Highlights of COP27
Limiting global warming to a maximum of 1.5° C compared to preindustrial levels has become prevalent on the agenda of many countries. It was also part of the agenda at the 27th annual UN Climate Change Conference, which recently took place in Egypt. What did the decision makers discuss?
South American pioneers – How Uruguay managed to become a champion in wind energy
A small country in Latin America has become a role model for the entire continent: Uruguay covers 94 percent of its energy needs from renewable sources. How did the country manage to do so? And what can other countries learn from Uruguay’s energy strategy?
Two win(d)s at once – How to manage both the energy and climate crisis
In addition to the climate crisis, the pandemic, and the war in Ukraine, Europe now has an energy crisis to deal with. Households and businesses alike are facing the impact of the exponential rise in energy prices. The wind energy industry, however, could help to mitigate further repercussions.
North Sea synergy – Surrounding countries debating over expansion
Europe counts on offshore wind energy, especially from the North Sea, to achieve the objectives of the European Green Deal. Some of the bordering countries recently met to discuss the expansion and future development of the sea.
Wind innovations – Part 1 – Three wind technologies you should know about
As wind energy continues to be one of the fastest growing renewable energy sources worldwide, the possibilities in that area are endless. Many creative thinkers are coming up with various alternative innovations that could turn the tide.
Heading Offshore – The recent boom in the expansion of offshore wind energy
Global offshore wind activity is on the rise. Since 2021 the number of related projects in the pipeline has never been higher. Experts are already speaking of a boom that is being driven primarily by China, the UK, and the USA. But is this development just a flash in the pan or is it here to stay?
No need to choose – Preserving species and fighting climate change
Wind energy is a driving force of the energy transition. Especially offshore wind parks have proven to be extremely promising due to their ability to produce massive amounts of energy. Yet, marine biologists are concerned about the influence the construction may have on the underwater environment. Does this mean we have to sacrifice climate protection for the sake of marine flora and fauna?
Africa’s huge wind potential – Electricity shortage in Africa: Gone with the wind?
In many parts of Africa, people still live without access to electricity. Although recent studies have shown the potential for renewable energy on the continent, electrification is proving to be challenging. In remote regions especially, the infrastructure is lacking.
