BNP Paribas Group has recently announced their new policies relating to the shift towards renewable energy. The group will no longer do business with companies whose principal business activity is the exploration, production, distribution, marketing or trading of oil and gas from shale and/or oil from tar sands.
For the first time, a research project will investigate the possibility of storing wind and solar power at a former gas field. The storage project is based on “power to gas technology”, which converts electricity generated in this way into a mixture of methane and hydrogen.
The technology group Wärtsilä will support the Indian company Arkay Energy (Rameswarm) Limited to reach higher electrical output and productivity, better operational security and increased efficiency of its power plant in a remote and developing area.
Liv Hovem will take over as CEO of DNV GL’s Oil & Gas business area, starting 1st January 2018, which provides integrated technical assurance and advisory services to operators, suppliers and regulators across the oil and gas value chain, from project initiation to decommissioning.
