Webinar: sustainable technology integration towards 100 per cent renewable energy

On Tuesday 1 July at 12.00 to 13.30 GMT, we are teaming up with our REN Alliance partners and the International Renewbable Energy Agency (IRENA) to host a webinar on renewables integration.

The webinar will explore how 100 per cent renewable energy supply is possible based on case studies demonstrating how the technologies work together, and discuss the real costs of renewable energy.

Canada and the USA benefit from interconnections

In February 2014, Canadian utility Manitoba Hydro announced a memorandum of understanding with US power co-operative Great River Energy to jointly investigate the sale of up to 600 MW of electricity from new hydropower projects.

The MOU arrives as Canada and the USA continue to step up cross-border connectivity. Is it the start of something bigger?  David Cormie, Manitoba Hydro’s division manager for power sales and operations, writes about the deal and its implications.

A new era of climate finance

Philipp Hauser is vice president carbon markets at GDF Suez Energy Latin America. He writes about his involvement at IHA’s World Congress in Malaysia, focusing on discussions about project finance in the 21st century and the environmental cost of delay.

The main benefit of participating in IHA’s World Congress was the possibility of exchanging views and experiences on topics relating to hydropower sustainability, and how potential problems and opportunities can be addressed.
