Europe has been producing 191 TWh combined worth of biogas and biomethane, a figure bound to quadruple by 2030. European countries have depended on Bioenergy as clean, renewable energy during those long winters. Germany has the highest number of biomethane plants at 232, followed by France and the United Kingdom. We have rounded up some big names in the European biogas market who are making a mark.
In 2022, the global green hydrogen pipeline alone exceeds 250GW, 200 times the power produced in 2020. Clearly, there is a huge potential for this zero carbon fuel. And the future for green H2 looks even bigger.
Oil pipelines have come a long way since the first recorded use of it back in 1859 in Pennsylvania. If we were to consider the sheer length of the current oil and gas pipelines combined globally, there is enough to circle the Earth 30 times over. These man-made structures literally run the world!
There are 2,175, 000 miles (35,00,323 KM) of pipeline crisscrossing 120 nations to get the energy to corners that need them the most. The US owns a lion's share of these pipelines (65%), followed by Russia (8%) and Canada (3%). What would be interesting to note is that the top three of the longest gas pipelines aren’t, in fact, in these countries.
The biggest cyberattacks included major energy companies, such as Chevron, Cheniere Energy, and Kinder Morgan. 21 natural energy companies in the U.S. were targeted by supposed Russian hackers, a few weeks before the Ukraine attacks.
It’s been another strong year for PPAs or Power Purchase Agreements in Europe. 2020 saw more than double (53) of PPAs signed compared to 2018 with 5.8 GW of CPPAs (Corporate Power Purchase Agreements). Spain and Germany seem to be the largest European markets for CPPAs.
