Massachusetts mandates 1.6GW...

The Massachusetts State Legislature has passed a bill that requires utilities in the state to contract for 1600MW of offshore wind capacity by 2027.

The “Act to promote energy diversity” also mandates the procurement of a further 1200MW of renewable energy, including onshore wind, hydropower and solar.

DONG Energy said that the “landmark” legislation will “allow the creation of a viable offshore wind energy industry” in Massachusetts. However some officials have criticised the failureof the bill to increase Renewable Portfolio Standards in the state.

Block Island, the first offshore wind farm in the US, is poised to enter the final phase of construction, following the delivery of five GE 6MW nacelles to the site off Rhode Island in late July.

…as NYS supports struggling nuclear

Regulators in New York State have approved a new Clean Energy Standard, which will require 50 percent of electricity to come from renewable sources by 2030.

The mandate will establish a credit system to subsidise renewable energy generation.
It will require utilities and energy suppliers to rapidly phase in clean energy resources, in order to meet incremental electricity load targets of just over 26% by next year and around 30% by 2021.

It also provides controversial support for three struggling nuclear reactors operated by Exelon and Entergy. The firms will receive total subsidies of around $500 million a year for the Fitzpatrick, Ginna and Nine Mile plants in New York State.

Netherlands eye €2bn offshore savings

Falling development costs could reduce the total amount spent by the Dutch government subsidising offshore wind developments by as much as €2 billion.

According to comments made by Rabobank’s Simone van Gendt in Dutch national Financieele Dagblad, the total subsidy required in order to meet 2023 capacity targets may stand at just €10 billion.

This figure sits €8 billion below initial projections, and a further €2 billion below the revised estimate produced last year by Henk Kamp, Minister of Economic Affairs.

Vestas takes 120MW Moroccan order

Vestas has confirmed a 120MW turbine supply order with Saudi developer Acwa Power for the Khalladi wind farm under development in northern Morocco.

Under the terms of the agreement, the Danish manufacturer will deliver 40 V90 units to the site in Q2 2017 ahead of installation later in the year.

The order is Vestas’ first in Morocco since 2000, and adds to a pipeline of over 900MW installed or under construction in Africa.

Nordex supplies EDF in Brazil

Nordex Group has agreed a turbine supply and installation contractwith EDF EN for the 66MW Ventos da Bahia 1 wind farm in Brazil.

The deal is the first for Nordex in Brazil since the high-profile takeover of Acciona Windpower in October 2015, and will see the firm install 22 Acciona AW125/3000 turbines at the site.

Delivery of the turbines, produced at the firm’s local manufacturing facilities in Brazil, will commence in late summer.
