Green Power Production

Power production

Enoil Bioenergies develops green power production based on solar power, biomass, wind power technologies. It will power its Biocentres based on its own power generation.

We work with leading technology providers to develop and install and expand sales of wind energy, solar energy, renewable energies and the continued use biotechnologies for sustainable development.

The company intend to operate its Biocentres with hybrid schemes that combine solar, biomass and wind power in order to reduce the unit cost of electricity per asset by sharing and fully utilising the grid connection and increased revenue.

Solar park power

Enoil Bioenergies is involved in the development of new types of photovoltaic solar power technology. It has a number of solar park installations in its portfolio (see references).

The amount of energy that radiates from the Earth each day in the form of sunlight is equivalent to about 15,000 times the world’s total energy consumption. If only a fraction of this solar energy could be converted into electricity, a large proportion of the world’s energy problems would be solved.

Solar photovoltaic (PV) technology development

The world has added more solar photovoltaic (PV) capacity since 2010 than in the previous four decades. The total global capacity exceeded 150GW in early 2014.

It is predicted that PV’s share of global electricity will reach 16% by 2050.

In recent years the cost of solar energy equipment has decreased significantly. This means that photovoltaic (PV) solar cells have reached, or in the near future will reach, “grid parity” for customers in many European countries and that small installation for private customers are already economically viable in these countries.

Large-scale PV installations need to compete in the energy market with other electricity sources and are often subsidized in Europe. However, in sunny regions of the world large-scale solar energy has become the cheapest source of energy, surpassing electricity made with fossil fuels or wind turbines.

As production prices are expected to continue to drop, solar energy is foreseen to make up a large – in some parts of the world even the largest – part of our future global energy supply.

Biomass combined heat and power plant (CHP)

Enoil Bioenergies sees an important role for biomass in greening society’s heat demand. In addition, the use of biomass in efficiency and flexible combined heat and power plants (CHPs) can help balance intermittent renewable power sources like wind and solar. Regardless of the end use of the biomass it always needs to be ensured that the woody biomass is sourced from sustainably managed forests.

A biomass-fired power plant produces electricity and heat by burning biomass in a boiler. The most common types of boilers are hot water boilers and steam boilers. Wood chips, residues and other types of biomass are used in the boilers, in the same way as coal, natural gas and oil.

Greenhouse gas emissions

CO2 emissions from biomass are part of a short cycle and do not lead to a net increase of CO2 in the atmosphere: When forests grow, they absorb CO2. When biomass is harvested from forests and used for energy the CO2 is released again. When the forest regrows it reabsorbs the CO2again. Provided the forest is managed sustainably the process of harvesting and regrowth can be continued indefinitely, making biomass a renewable source of energy.

Wind power

Enoil Bioenergies is a developer of wind power. The company is developing and installing wind parks and it is involved in a new type of electromagnetic levitation wind turbines to be tested in its Biocentres.

Wind power operations

Wind power is the fastest growing energy source in Europe and plays a key role in the achievement of the European Union’s climate goals.

Enoil Bioenergies sees significant growth opportunities with combined wind, solar and biomass power production.

Wind power has no fuel costs, no emissions of CO2 and is the fastest growing source of energy in the EU. In the last 15 years, wind power has moved from a technology that attracted only a few investors to one that attracts broad-based investments throughout the EU.

Germany and Spain are Europe’s largest wind power countries in terms of installed capacity, comprising one third and one-sixth of Europe’s wind power, respectively. The global leader is China, with a third of the world’s wind power capacity (source IEA).
