Spanish multinational utility Iberdrola has obtained the Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for four solar photovoltaic plants in the province of Cáceres.

 

The €180m solar pv projects will have a total capacity of 300MW.

 

Three of the solar pv projects are part of the Arañuelo Complex and amount to a total of 150MW and the fourth is the Arenales facility, with another 150MW of installed capacity.

 

The Arañuelo I, II and III plants, of 50MW each, will consist of 12,514 fixed structures and 366,180 solar panels. The project also includes an energy storage system involving the use of an innovative battery.

 

The Arenales photovoltaic plant, with an installed capacity of 150MW, will consist of 390,840 solar panels.

 

The projects are part of an initiative with a capacity of 728MW which Iberdrola will implement in the coming months.

 

More than 1,000 professionals will be involved in the construction of the four projects.

The Electrification Of UK Offshore Oil & Gas

21/09/2020 08:26:00

The British government has set a goal to reach net zero emissions by 2050. Electrification of oil and gas platforms on the UK continental shelf (UKCS) should play an important role in efforts to achieve this target, as a Rystad Energy analysis shows that UK oil and gas production will remain significant for decades to come. After a small decline over the next several years, output forecast to rebound to approximately 2 million barrels of oil equivalent per day by around 2035. UK emissions from oil and gas production in the North Sea are the highest among the region’s producers, reaching 13.1 million tonnes of CO2 in 2019, according to Rystad Energy emission data. Extraction emissions account for 10.1 million tonnes of CO2, with flaring making up the rest.
