/ China has announced plans to roll out the world’s largest carbon market. Initially covering the power industry, it will regulate the offsetting and trading of 3.3 billion metric tonnes of emissions, dwarfing the EU’s Cap and Trade scheme. How will it work and will this bold move be the impetus for similar schemes elsewhere? We find out. And in technology, we learn about subsea technology company Rovco’s unique 3D visualisation system that could help reduce the cost of offshore wind farm inspection by up to 80%.
Also, we explore the shifts making renewable generation a serious competitor, such as the European Investment Bank investing $400m in solar power in India, we take a look at plans to build the biggest ever wave energy park off the coast of Bali, and assess Shell’s decision to expand its renewables portfolio. While in utilities, Origami Energy argues that flexibility is the future and explains the value of real-time energy control. /
