Global: Women Represent 32% of the Renewable Energy Workforce - IRENA Report

Geothermal Resources Council - Mon, 2019-01-14 17:57
Renewable Energy: A Gender Perspective (IRENA)

Renewable Energy: A Gender Perspective provides new insights on women’s role in renewable energy employment and decision-making globally.

This key report by the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) aims to help fill the knowledge gap in this field. Based on a ground-breaking, first-of-its-kind online survey combined with in-depth research, the study highlights the importance of women’s contributions in the energy transformation, the barriers and challenges they face, and measures that governments and companies can take to address these.

The study finds that women represent 32% of the renewable energy workforce. This compares favourably to the broader, conventional energy sector. Still significant imbalances remain, both in highly developed markets and in communities where renewables are only now extending energy access. The decentralised nature of renewable applications, however, brings energy choices to the household and community level, where women tend to have a greater voice.

Kenya: Drilling to Resume at 70 MW Akiira One Geothermal Project

Geothermal Resources Council - Mon, 2019-01-14 17:09
Centum set to resume geothermal exploration (Business Daily Africa)

Centum Investment Company Plc and its partners plan to resume exploration for geothermal steam in Naivasha by March after previous two wells yielded less resource than what is required to sustain electricity generation.
Akiira Geothermal Ltd, a consortium where Centum controls a 37.5 per cent stake, banks on the planned drilling to kick-start building of a 70-megawatt power plant whose cost is projected at €310 million (Sh36.04 billion).
The first two wells, whose drilling works started in 2015, encountered some steam which was, however, not enough to support power generation to be connected to the national grid.
Centum chief executive James Mworia said: “We are in advanced discussions with strategic partners to do a joint development of the field and we expect to conclude that in the first quarter and to carry on with the drilling activities.”
“The field is rich in geothermal. It’s just next to KenGen’s Olkaria field. So, I have no doubt it’s going to be a successful operation. It’s just that it has taken us a long time,” he added.

Climate Change: Report Suggests Energy Transformation will Change Energy Statecraft as We Know It

Geothermal Resources Council - Fri, 2019-01-11 18:46
Global Commission Describes New Geopolitical Power Dynamics Created by Renewables (IRENA)

Political and business leaders from around the world have outlined the far-reaching geopolitical implications of an energy transformation driven by the rapid growth of renewable energy. In a new report launched today at the Assembly of the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA), the Global Commission on the Geopolitics of Energy Transformation says the geopolitical and socio-economic consequences of a new energy age may be as profound as those which accompanied the shift from biomass to fossil fuels two centuries ago. These include changes in the relative position of states, the emergence of new energy leaders, more diverse energy actors, changed trade relationships and the emergence of new alliances.

The Commission’s report ‘A New World’ suggests that the energy transformation will change energy statecraft as we know it. Unlike fossil fuels, renewable energy sources are available in one form or another in most geographic locations. This abundance will strengthen energy security and promote greater energy independence for most states. At the same time, as countries develop renewables and increasingly integrate their electricity grids with neighbouring countries, new interdependencies and trade patterns will emerge. The analysis finds oil and gas-related conflict may decline, as will the strategic importance of some maritime chokepoints.
