Neste’s new environmental gaming platform launched globally in San Francisco school

Neste’s new environmental gaming platform launched globally in San Francisco school

Apr 28, 2017
Energy & resource efficiency
Smart transport & logistics

If the environment were a game, would we win?

New gaming platform, EduCycle, uses augmented reality (AR), designed and build by Neste, sets out to teach children about CO2 emissions. The game challenges children how to reduce their personal carbon footprint by simulating their energy, food and traffic choices in the game’s physical map board. Players can then see their choices come alive on the mobile app. Reducing the world's carbon dioxide emissions to the level specified in the 2015 Paris Agreement on climate change is the challenge in the game.

Neste donated the first game to Lincoln High School in San Francisco. Representatives from the San Francisco Department of the Environment were also present. Heureka science center in Vantaa, Finland, will receive the game in April 2017. Similar organizations around the world have shown interest in the platform.

"San Francisco school students are some of our greatest environmental champions because they learn about the importance of protecting nature in the classroom," said Deborah Raphael, Director of the San Francisco Department of Environment.

"Activities that help our students better understand the impacts of climate change offer meaningful opportunities for students to dig deeper and think even bigger about how they might make a difference for their generation and generations to come."

"Now that the first version of the game is ready, we're keen to hand it over to an interested third party for further development," Jeremy Baines VP Sales, Neste North America said. "The idea is to ultimately make it available to as many children and young people as possible, in a way that is both easy and affordable."

The beta launch of EduCycle is the culmination of Neste's year-long Pre-order the Future initiative. It aims to generate discussion on responsible alternatives and to develop bold and innovative solutions for sustainable products and services together with the public. Neste experts worked together with TBWA  advertising agency and the spoken word artist and passionate environmentalist Prince EA.  

"I joined this project to create something that would be beneficial to the environment and the future," says Prince EA, who acted as the project's content creator. "EduCycle is an extremely innovative step towards a better future of learning and I'm excited to see what's in store for it."

The public also played an active role in developing the game's concept, and its prototype was tested by children both in Finland and in the U.S. The environmental science behind the game is based on research data by the IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change), while FAKE Oy, a Finnish digital animation and visual effects studio, is behind the game's programming and look.  

Neste's renewable diesel has been used to cut greenhouse gas emissions in several California cities, including San Francisco, Oakland, Walnut Creek and San Diego, as well as the County of Sacramento, and for various public events, such as Super Bowl 50 in 2016. Additionally, renewable diesel is being used by corporations, such as UPS and Google.

Bioenergy & biofuels

The City of San Diego in California has recently started using Neste Renewable Diesel in its vehicle fleet consisting of service trucks, refuse packers, dump trucks, construction equipment, and street sweepers, to name a few. By switching from conventional petroleum diesel to Neste Renewable Diesel, San Diego joins California's cleanest city fleets including San Francisco, Oakland, Walnut Creek, Carlsbad, and County of Sacramento.

"This change will make a major part of our fleet greener overnight, creating more environmentally-friendly vehicles that are cheaper to maintain," Mayor Kelvin L. Faulconer, City of San Diego, says. 

"Air quality is a significant concern in many cities around the world today. Neste offers a drop-in solution for instantly reducing traffic-related local emissions and improving local air quality," says Kaisa Hietala, Executive Vice President, Renewable Products at Neste. 

While the switch from petroleum diesel to waste and residue based Neste Renewable Diesel helps improve local air quality, its use additionally reduces San Diego diesel fleet's greenhouse gas emissions by up to 80%, contributing to the city's ambitious climate targets. Over 1,100 vehicles and equipment, representing approximately 25% of the city's fleet, run on Neste Renewable Diesel, and no performance issues have been reported.

"By transitioning to renewable diesel, we're significantly reducing the pollution caused by city vehicles that serve the public on a daily basis. We're leading by example and showing other cities how to make common-sense changes to improve the environment around us," Faulconer continues.

"Renewable diesel is going to help a significant portion of our fleet run much cleaner with less wear and tear on the engines compared to petroleum diesel," says Alia Khouri, the City's Fleet Operations Director.

High-performance buildings

Finnish expertise helps China to unfold all its potential in the snowy fields of winter sports.

In China, following the nomination of Beijing as the host city of the 2022 Winter Olympics, the icy and snowy elements of sports have gained a serious boost in popularity. For example, the Chinese government is hoping for 300 million Chinese citizens to have a hobby in winter sports, before the Olympic torch arrives in Beijing. In addition, there is an official target to build up to 2000 new ice hockey arenas and halls within the same schedule.

As the plans in China are somewhat ambitious, the Finpro-managed Team Finland growth program Beautiful Beijing is connecting Finnish knowledge with Chinese aspirations.

"I believe in these opportunities around winter sports. We have various solutions, technologies and knowledge to entrench the Chinese footing in winter sports," says Mika Finska, Program Director of Beautiful Beijing growth program.

Historically, Finland is one of the most distinguished powerhouses in winter sports, but the Nordic winter-expertise is not only limited to sports performance, as multitude of Finnish companies offer various technologies and solutions for winter sports usage: Among others, the likes of ice hockey rinks, indoor ski tunnels and multipurpose arenas demonstrate the Finnish world-class know-how in the sports related business.

Hockey, of course

Complementing the Finnish winter sports competences is obviously ice hockey. In Finland, there hardly is a sport as popular as the one with ice, skates and a puck.

While Finns have lately had their fair share of ice hockey success, the beauty of hockey is also gaining popularity in China. Just recently, the 2016–2017 Kontinental Hockey League (KHL) season started with the addition of a Beijing-based club Kunlun Red Star.

Finns are actively helping China to further its expertise in terms of hockey. For instance, Helsinki-based KHL team Jokerit has been arranging ice hockey coaching and training services for Chinese players, teams and coaches. Moreover, Jokerit sent its own juniors to showcase their talent in China during the last summer.

The positive results of the collaboration are already cooking up.

"We build bridges between Finnish companies and international partners. So far, the cooperation has opened new business opportunities for our collaborates," comments Jukka Kohonen, CEO of Jokerit.

Next steps: business opportunities and business events with Beijing Winter Olympics and ice hockey

There are various lucrative business opportunities for Finnish cleantech companies in Chinese winter sports markets. Finpro managed Cleantech Finland program organizes various activities in Beijing for Finnish companies in collaboration with Jokerit HC and Helsinki Business Hub in January 2017. Also, 2022 Beijing Winter Olympic Games is looking for a Finnish architect company to design a Winter Sports Center in the Zhangjiakou area.

New record for renewable energy production in Finland

New record for renewable energy production in Finland

Mar 14, 2017
Energy & resource efficiency
Renewables & smart grid
Bioenergy & biofuels

Finland’s renewable energy production is estimated to have reached over 130 terawatt-hours last year. The biggest increase was in the amount of energy produced from forest industry black liquor and by-products, which made up over 60 percent of total renewable energy.

According to estimates by the Finland’s Energy Authority, renewable energy sources produced more than 130 terawatt-hours of electricity, heat and biofuel for traffic in 2016. Irrespective of the calculation method used, the share of renewable energy of total end consumption is set to exceed 40 percent. This would be a new production record and about five percent more than in the previous year. The biggest increase in renewable energy production came from energy produced from forest industry black liquor and by-products, which made up over 60 percent of total renewable energy.

2020 target is 5.3 terawatt-hours of electricity from forest chips

In Finland, industrial scale use of renewable energy is promoted by the feed-in tariff administered by the Energy Authority. The target is that by the year 2020 forest chips will be used to produce 5.3 terawatt-hours and wind power 6 terawatt-hours of electricity. In 2016, the plants in the feed-in tariff system produced about 2 terawatt-hours of electricity with forest chips and almost 3 terawatt-hours using wind power.

“Our electricity system can cope with this amount of variable production as well as the additional 2 terawatt-hours of production proposed in the climate strategy. Maintaining the security of supply requires some measures, however, both in terms of technological development and market rules. The Energy Authority has increased the peak load capacity, demand-side management is under constant development, and transmission links between Finland and Sweden will be increased,” says Simo Nurmi, Director General of the Energy Authority.

The feed-in tariff system came into force in March 2011. Since then 161 power plants have been accepted in the system, of which 53 are forest chip plants and 103 wind power plants. The system has no specific quota for the number of forest chip plants.

“Finland has become a global leader in the utilization of wood-based biomass for energy production, thanks to our exceptionally strong forest sector and extensive investments in bioenergy R&D&I since the 1980s. We have here a unique platform for bio-based production and partnering,” says Jari Tielinen, Senior Advisor at Finpro’s Invest in Finland unit.

In 2016, a total of EUR 172 million was paid out in feed-in tariff subsidies, of which EUR 34 million went to forest chip plants, EUR 136 million to wind power plants, and the remaining EUR 2 million to firewood and biogas plants.

Norsepower to pilot sail technology on product tankers, taking lead position in competition

Norsepower to pilot sail technology on product tankers, taking lead position in competition

Mar 16, 2017
Energy & resource efficiency
Renewables & smart grid

Norsepower’s fuel-efficient technology expected to save approximately 10% in fuel consumption and associated emissions on Maersk tankers.

Norsepower Oy in partnership with Maersk Tankers, The Energy Technologies Institute (ETI), and Shell Shipping & Maritime will install and trial Flettner rotor sails onboard a Maersk vessel.

The project will be the first installation of wind-powered energy technology on a product tanker vessel, and will provide insights into fuel savings and operational experience.

Marsk product tanker vessel will be retrofitted with two 30m tall by 5m diameter Norsepower Rotor Sails. Each Rotor Sail is manufactured by applying the latest intelligent lightweight composite sandwich materials offering a simple yet robust hi-tech solution. When wind conditions are favourable, the main engines can be throttled back, providing a net fuel cost and emission savings, while not impacting scheduling.

 

“Together with our partners, we have the opportunity to deploy an innovative technology that can improve fuel efficiency on our LR2 product tanker vessels and help to reduce their environmental impact,” tells Tommy Thomassen, Chief Technical Officer, Maersk Tankers.

Main part of the funding is by the Energy Technologies Institute (ETI) of UK, with contributions from Maersk Tankers and Norsepower. Shell will be acting as project coordinator, providing operational and terminal / port consultancy and Maersk Tankers will provide technical and operational insight.

“We are privileged and excited to be collaborating with Maersk Tankers, Shell, and the ETI on this project. We are optimistic that support for this trial from these industry leading organisations will open up the market for our technology to a larger number of long-range product tanker vessels,” says Tuomas Riski, CEO, Norsepower.

“At Shell, we believe that innovation and technology are key elements to improving the efficiency and environmental performance of shipping operations. We look forward to using our shipping and technical expertise to support this trial,” comments Karrie Trauth, General Manager, Technology & Innovation, Shell Shipping & Maritime.

The Norsepower Rotor Sail Solution is a modernised version of the Flettner rotor – a spinning cylinder that uses the Magnus effect to harness wind power to propel a ship.

“Flettner rotors have the potential to reduce ship fuel consumption substantially, especially on tankers and dry bulk carriers. It is one of the few fuel saving technologies that could offer double digit percentage improvements. To date, there has been insufficient full scale demonstration on a suitable ocean going marine vessel to prove the technology benefits and operational impact,” adds Andrew Scott, Programme Manager HDV marine and offshore renewable energy, The Energy Technologies Institute (ETI).

The rotor sails will be fitted during the first half of 2018, before undergoing testing and data analysis at sea until the end of 2019. Independent experts will be analysing the data gathered from the project before publishing technical and operational insights, and performance studies.

Norsepower has won Innovation of the Year Award in 2016 Electric & Hybrid Marine Awards.
