French utility Engie and Portugal’s EDP said on Tuesday they will invest 15 billion euros ($16.7 billion) with the aim of becoming the world’s number two offshore wind developer after Denmark’s Orsted.

The two utilities, which have no operational offshore wind parks so far, said they will combine their offshore wind assets and project pipelines, starting with a total of 1.5 gigawatts (GW) under construction and 4 GW under development.

 

The joint venture, which for EDP will be through its EDP Renovaveis (EDPR) renewables business, aims to reach 5-7 GW of projects in operation or construction and 5-10 GW under advanced development by 2025.

 

Orsted had cumulative installed offshore capacity of about 3 GW at the end of 2018, giving it a market share of about 16 percent, WindEurope data shows, with Germany’s E.ON, Sweden’s Vattenfall and Germany’s Innogy in second, third and fourth, each with more than 1.0 GW installed.

Daily (12.08.2019): European spot power prices plummeted by nearly 70% on Friday due to a surge in renewables output

12/08/2019 11:16:00

Oil prices continued to climb on Friday, in response to weaker Euroilstock data, which showed a decrease in the total crude and product inventories of 16 European countries in July. Prices also drew support from OPEC supply cuts and Saudi Arabia’s commitment to bring the oil market back to balance. Hence, Brent crude rose by 2% to $58.53 a barrel. Concurrently, WTI futures surged by 3.7% to $54.50 a barrel, on lower production growth forecasts after U.S. drillers slashed the active oil rig count for a sixth straight week.
