Space applications for evaluation of potentials: towards an Atlas of Marine Energies

The Sustainable Energy for All Initiative launched by the Secretary General of the United Nations, targets a doubling of the share of renewable energy by 2030. Fulfilling this ambitious objective will require a mobilisation of all renewable energy technologies. The Global Atlas project of IRENA aims to provide governments and industry with reliable and accurate information about Renewable potentials in order to enable them to take the best policy and investment decisions. Building of the Global Atlas has in his initial stage focused on Solar and Wind potentials in coordination with the CEM. It will expand from 2013 on other sources of renewable. Satellite providers and operators, data users, experts and industry will look at the way satellite data can help and could be improved to provide the best information. Global Atlas stakeholders and IRENA will explain how they use these data and to expand the evaluation of potentials to Marine Energies.

Marine Energies are widely acknowledged as major possible contributors to the future renewable energy production. Up to now, the humanity has failed to tap into those immense energy resources for power generation, and since the early demonstrations in the 70’s, marine energies are remaining an energy source for the future. Several issues are hindering the development of marine energies. The sector lacks technology solutions having a successful track record. Despite the recent launch of a number of marine wind farms, the market is still widely unexplored, and limited efforts have been put into assessing the resource, or identifying the best locations for sitting future commercial projects. This step is fundamental to assess the bankability of future marine projects, improve the understanding of the possible market volumes, and develop industrial strategies to commercialise marine energy devices. The discussion will aim at proposing a roadmap to develop better evaluation of marine energies potentials.

Applications spatiales au service de l’évaluation des potentiels : vers un Atlas des Energies Marines

L'accès à l’énergie durable pour tous, Initiative lancée par le Secrétaire général de l'ONU, vise notamment le doublement de la part des énergies renouvelables d'ici 2030. La réalisation de cet objectif ambitieux nécessitera une mobilisation de toutes les technologies d'énergie renouvelable. L’Atlas Global des Energies Renouvelables de l’IRENA doit permettre de fournir aux décideurs publics et investisseurs une information fiable sur les potentiels EnR et leur localisation. Dans sa phase initiale, le développement de cet Atlas Global a porté sur le potentiel solaire et éolien, en coordination avec le CEM. En 2013, il est prévu de l’étendre à d'autres sources des énergies renouvelables.

Fournisseurs de satellites et opérateurs, utilisateurs, experts et industriels des EnR se pencheront sur le rôle des données satellitaires dans cette démarche et sur les possibilités d’en accroitre les performances. Des partenaires et utilisateurs de l’Atlas Global expliqueront comment ils utilisent ces données et examineront la manière dont l'évaluation des potentiels pourrait être étendue aux énergies marines.

Les énergies marines sont, en effet, généralement reconnues comme une des principales sources potentielles de production d'énergie renouvelable. Jusqu'à présent, l'humanité n'a pas réussi à en tirer réellement partie. Malgré quelques projets lancés dans les années 70, les énergies marines restent marginales dans la production d’EnR. Parmi les éléments qui freinent leur développement on relève notamment l’insuffisance de solutions technologiques suffisamment éprouvées malgré le lancement récent d'un certain nombre de parcs éoliens marins et un marché encore largement inexploré avec des efforts d’évaluation des ressources limités. L’étape de l’évaluation est fondamentale pour déterminer la faisabilité de projets d’énergie marine, mieux appréhender les potentiels de marchés, mobiliser les financements et élaborer des stratégies industrielles dans ce secteur. La discussion aura donc pour objectif de proposer une feuille de route pour développer un Atlas des potentiels en énergies marines.

IRELP & Francophone academic contribution

One of the challenges faced by the renewable energy industry is the disparity between the skills being demanded from employers in this sector and those currently taught in educational institutions worldwide. Education and training in the renewable energy sector is a critical component in achieving the widespread deployment of renewable energy technologies. To tackle this situation, IRENA developed the ‘IRENA Renewable Energy Learning Partnership’ (IRELP) portal, which was launched in April 2012 during the third Clean Energy Ministerial in London. The portal is a central hub that pools renewable energy education and training materials that often tend to be widely dispersed, and displays renewable energy internship opportunities. This event will present the main components and features of IRELP, and explore the role of academia and importance of francophone education, training and expertise in the IRELP portal. The various methods and means of support, as well as the effort required to make IRELP a quality tool of international reference, will also be discussed. To access IRELP: http://www.irelp.org

Contributions francophones /IRELP

Un des obstacles importants au développement des ENR est la disparité entre les compétences-métiers demandées par les employeurs dans ce secteur et celles pour le moment enseignées. Education, formation et échange de connaissances et d’expertise constituent donc des vecteurs clefs de l’action. Pour progresser sur ce sujet, l’IRENA a développé l’IRELP « IRENA Renewable Energy Learning Partnership », un portail internet lancé en avril 2012, à l’occasion de la CEM de Londres. Ce portail concentre la documentation sur l’offre d’éducation et la formation dans les ENR, qui pour le moment a souvent tendance à être très dispersée, et présente les opportunités de stages existantes. Cet évènement présentera les principales composantes et caractéristiques de la plateforme IRELP et explorera avec des représentants du monde universitaire et scientifique, la place et l’importance des formations et expertises francophones sur le portail. Les diverses méthodes et outils d’appui, et l’effort requis pour faire de l’IRELP un outil de qualité de référence international sera discuté. Pour accéder au Portail : http://www.irelp.org

Decision Making Tools

In July 2011, the energy ministers and heads of delegations from African countries gathered in Abu Dhabi for the High-level IRENA-Africa Consultations had requested that a priority be given to a rapid and objective assessment of the State of the potential in the field of renewable energy and to identify ways to address existing gaps. Tools to support decision-making, put in place for this purpose by IRENA, RRA (Renewable Readiness Assessment) and CaDRE (Capacity Development Needs Diagnostics for Renewable Energy), initially deployed in African countries, such as Niger, are now extended to several regions of the world. Other actors have developed tools for deciders, such as MED-IMPACT, for the Mediterranean Solar Plan, or MEDNET and EDNET by the network of Mediterranean countries national agencies competent for energy efficiency and saving (MEDENER). The panel will examine the usefulness and complementarity of these tools for the formulation and consistent implementation of all necessary conditions for the deployment of public policies and investments in the field in REN and for the access to multilateral, bilateral and private funding.

Outils d’aide à la décision

En juillet 2011, les Ministres de l’Énergie et chefs de délégations des pays africains réunis à Abou Dabi pour les Consultations de haut niveau IRENA-Afrique avaient demandé qu’une priorité soit accordée à « une évaluation rapide et objective de l’état des potentialités dans le domaine des énergies renouvelables et d’identifier les moyens de faire face aux lacunes existantes ». Les outils d’aide à la décision, mis en place à cette fin par l’IRENA, RRA (Renewable Readiness Assessment) ET CaDRE (Capacity Development Needs Diagnostics for Renewable Energy), ont été déployés initialement dans plusieurs pays africain, dont le Niger. Ils sont désormais étendus à d’autres régions du monde. D’autres acteurs ont développés des instruments utiles aux décideurs, tel MED-IMPACT, dans le cadre du Plan Solaire Méditerranéen, ou encore MEDNET et EDNET par le réseau des agences nationales du Bassin Méditerranéen compétentes en matière d’économies d’énergies (MEDENER). Le panel examinera l’utilité et la complémentarité de ces outils pour la formulation et la mise en place cohérente de l’ensemble des conditions nécessaires pour le déploiement des politiques publiques et des investissements dans les ENR et l’accès aux bailleurs de fonds.

Hybrid Power Systems

There are often advantages to combining renewable power systems with conventional energy generation. The main one is operational: the variability of wind and solar technologies can rapidly be compensated by diesel or gas fired plants. Merging of different renewable energy sources presents advantages and can make REN projects more reliable: wind is an intermittent resource; solar is only available when the sun is shining, geothermal is continuous, and biomass allows maintaining the ability of generators to respond more easily to fluctuating electricity demand. In remote areas, such hybrid micro grids may also prove cost-competitive considered the high fossil fuel price. Some may consider however that combination with fossil or nuclear energy results in postponing the transition to clean energy. Innovative market players and institutional experts will present potentials and prospects of hybrid power systems from their point of view. They will look at technical aspects, as well as the impact on access to energy, carbon footprint, economical cost and local employment.

Sources d’énergie hybrides

Il est souvent avantageux de chercher à combiner énergies renouvelables avec énergies conventionnelles. Le principal intérêt des centrales « hybrides » est opérationnel : en l'absence de moyen de stockage à large échelle, l’intermittence des sources d’énergie solaire et éolienne peut être compensée par des centrales thermiques au fuel ou au gaz. Cette combinaison peut rendre certains projets EnR plus fiables car elle permet ainsi de répondre plus facilement aux fluctuations de la demande d'électricité. En outre, dans les régions éloignées, les micro-réseaux hybrides peuvent aussi réduire le coût de l’accès à l’énergie. Certains peuvent toutefois considérer que la combinaison avec les énergies fossiles ou nucléaire ne fait que retarder la transition énergétique. Acteurs du marché innovant et experts institutionnels présenteront leur point de vue sur les potentiels et les perspectives de la production d’énergie hybride. Ils examineront les aspects techniques, ainsi que l'impact sur l'accès à l'énergie, le bilan carbone, le coût économique et l'emploi local.

Debate on compared advantages of desalinization based on REN energy Moderator: Alexander Ritschell - MASDAR

Solar Desalinization

Access to drinking water is a major challenge for a growing number of countries, in particular in the Gulf. Current techniques of desalination of sea water based on fossil energy are sources of important greenhouse gas emissions and high cost (70% of the price of water). If the use of solar power is advantageous in terms of carbon footprint, it remains however problematic, considering the importance of the amount of solar energy required and its consequences not only on the cost, but also the extent of areas to mobilize for solar farms. Scientific, technical and industrial organizations strive to seek solutions to reduce energy consumption in desalination stations and the cost of the energy required. The panel will discuss the technological challenges and solutions based on alternative renewable energy solutions and will present Masdar innovation programme on these issues as well as the views of IRENA on present perspectives.

Désalinisation solaire

L’accès à l’eau potable est un défi majeur pour un nombre croissant de pays, en particulier dans le Golfe. Les techniques actuelles de dessalement de l’eau de mer, fondées sur les énergies fossiles sont à la fois sources d’émissions de gaz à effet de serre et coûteuses (près de 70% du prix de l’eau desalinisée). Si l’utilisation de l’énergie solaire est avantageuse en termes de bilan carbone, elle reste pour l’heure problématique compte tendu de l’importance de la quantité d’énergie solaire requise et de ses conséquences sur le coût et sur l’étendue des espaces à mobiliser pour les installations de captage. Des organismes scientifiques, techniques et industriels s’efforcent de rechercher des solutions permettant de réduire le niveau de consommation énergétique des stations de dessalement et le prix de revient de l’énergie nécessaire. Le panel fera le point sur les défis technologiques et les solutions fondées sur les ENR auxquelles ils travaillent. Il examinera aussi les sources d’énergies renouvelables alternatives possibles, présentera le programme expérimental de Masdar sur ces questions ainsi que les perspectives vues par l’IRENA.
