Battery-powered Generator Technology

Enterprises must explore innovative approaches to battery storage, including repurposing retired electric vehicle batteries for stationary storage and developing new materials to enhance battery performance and longevity. To make battery storage technologies efficient and accessible, continued investment, innovation, and policy support to accelerate their adoption and maximize their potential impact on global sustainability efforts is necessary.

One example of new innovation in mobile energy storage is Moxion Power, recognized as a TIME’s Best Invention recipient in 2023. They develop mobile battery energy storage systems (BESS) as a more sustainable, 100 percent electric option over diesel fuel generators for temporary power applications.

Kraft Heinz Partners with Carlton Power for Green Hydrogen

Food giant Kraft Heinz’s groundbreaking green hydrogen project with Carlton Power in the UK is a highlight on the evolving energy landscape. This ambitious initiative, aiming to fuel 50% of a major manufacturing plant with renewable hydrogen demonstrates an effective innovation pipeline dedicated to ESG transformations. The strategic alignment of important corporate goals with the external technological expertise of an energy development company is a perfect example of phased approach open innovation. If successful, this project presents a replicable model for wider industry adoption, accelerating the global green transition. Improved innovation program management can drive similar ESG initiatives forward, providing a roadmap for other companies in related industries to follow.

Department of Energy Evaluation of Future Liquified Natural Gas (LNG) Exports

As an Innovation Program provider who works closely with the Oil, Gas, and Energy industry, we’d like to explore the financial and economic implications of the new pause of US Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) exports to non-FTA countries. This temporary pause was put into place to reevaluate current market conditions and update data associated with many factors such as the impact on national security and foreign policy, the price of natural gas for our allies and in American homes, as well as overall impact on the environment. The US is currently the largest exporter of LNG in the world and this change is likely to have a mixed impact on the energy sector, with both positive and negative consequences for different stakeholders.

 

Negative impacts:

LNG producers:
Reduced export volumes will lead to lower revenues and profits, potentially impacting their investments in innovative new projects and exploration activities.

 

Natural gas pipeline operators:
Lower LNG exports will result in less natural gas flowing through pipelines, reducing revenue for pipeline operators.

 

It is important to note that the American Petroleum Institute and 31 other leading industry groups have already expressed their concern over this pause on pending LNG export decisions. Their letter to US Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm states, “Our nation’s abundant supply of natural gas is an impactful geopolitical tool, helping insulate American consumers from increasing global instability while advancing American national interests and ensuring the energy security of key U.S. allies.”

 

Natural gas consumers in non-FTA countries:
The pause in exports could lead to higher natural gas prices for these countries, particularly if they have limited alternative sources of supply.

Positive impacts:

Natural gas consumers in FTA countries:
Some consumers in countries with free trade agreements with the US may benefit from lower natural gas prices due to increased supply in the domestic market.

 

Global LNG market:
The pause could help to balance supply and demand in the global LNG market in the long run, potentially leading to more stable prices over time.

 

Environmental considerations:
The future need of abundant US LNG sources in a market demanding greener energy choices should be evaluated now. In an interview on January 26, US Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm said, “Under the Natural Gas Act the Department of Energy is required to assess what is the public interest. We need to update our assessments…Nothing will change in terms of what is currently being exported or what is currently under construction.”

 

Innovation opportunities:
The temporary halt on approving new LNG exports to non-Free Trade Agreement countries presents an increased opportunity for energy companies to revolutionize and create cutting-edge technologies that can substantially minimize the environmental impact of Liquefied Natural Gas.

 

Certainly, the implications of the temporary pause are complex and depend on factors including the duration of the pause, alternative supply options for non-FTA countries, and global market conditions. But in the face of geopolitical pressure for supply while balancing important ESG policies, the oil, gas, and energy industry must continuously seek out innovation to remain agile and competitive. Robust innovation programs that utilize focused R&D and expert ideation give organizations the strategies to remain adaptable even in these changing business climates.

Clean Energy- A Vineyard Wind turbine made its first energy delivery to the grid in Massachusetts.

Avangrid and Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners have jointly constructed the first large-scale offshore wind project in the United States, Vineyard Wind. The project is located 15 miles off the coast of Massachusetts and is on track to achieve full commercial operations in 2024, delivering clean energy to the New England grid for 400,000 homes and businesses. The wind farm will have a total of 62 turbines, with 5 turbines already installed and 4 more currently undergoing testing. Once energized, Vineyard Wind will deliver approximately 65 Megawatts of clean energy from five GE Haliade-X turbines. It has the potential to reduce carbon emissions by over 1 million tons each year, the equivalent of taking 325,000 cars off the road annually. The offshore wind industry is expected to play a crucial role in meeting the target of tripling the use of renewable energy, as agreed upon by nearly 200 countries at COP28, by creating power that is renewable, locally produced, and affordable.
