Deep in the gently rolling Mendip Hills of Somerset, in the southwest of England, nestles a dairy farm with 150 years of cheese making heritage. It lies only a few miles from the site of the world famous Glastonbury rock festival but the cows clearly dig the music, because they not only produce enough milk for some 14,000 metric tonnes of top quality cheese a year - they also power the farm.
Last month the National Resources Defense Council (NRDC) issued a call for support to help it get solar energy programs on top of, and into, select schools nationwide. Thanks to an 11th-hour push, they achieved their goal, surpassing $54,000 in total, thanks to nearly 300 supporters who donated between $1 and $15,000. (If any of you out there, our
This week the Ontario government released its Long-Term Energy Plan (LTEP), which balances a big ramp-up in renewable energy and notable pullback in nuclear.
The levelized cost of energy from wind turbines is lower than every other generating source except for natural gas and hydro. It comes as no surprise that in 2012, 42 percent of the new electricity generating capacity in the U.S. was from wind — with over 45,000 operating utility-scale turbines.
The Co-operative’s new headquarters at One Angel Square in Manchester, UK was lauded last month during its official opening for meriting the title, ‘World’s most environmentally friendly building.’
Nothing says “December in D.C.” like the mad dash to haggle over end-of-year tax extenders – and the energy sectors is no exception. Since this ritual opens the door to plenty of misinformation and special interest lobbying from renewable energy opponents, this post will help hammer out the facts.
Record output from wind farms lifted Germany’s share of renewable electricity production above its 2020 target of 35 percent today as a storm from Scandinavia battered the nation’s northern coast.
Today the Obama administration issued an executive order re-establishing one of the proclamations from the climate change plans it issued this summer: significantly boosting the U.S. federal government's support of renewable energy to supply 20 percent of its energy consumption by 2020.
Today, the EPA has scheduled a day of testimony on its proposed 2014 Renewable Fuel volume targets — and a proposed 40 percent slash in the advanced biofuels category to 2.2 billion (ethanol equivalent) gallons, from the original Congress-set target of 3.75 billion gallons.
A 9.5-MW power station that will be fired using coconut waste is to be developed in Thailand. Under the terms of a deal recently inked between biomass and waste-to-energy provider DP Cleantech and the Mahachai Green Power project, the company will develop a high pressure, high temperature plant on an EPC (engineering, procurement, construction) basis.
SolarCity Corp., the second largest U.S. solar company by market value, is offering power-storage systems to commercial customers that will reduce utility bills and provide electricity during blackouts.
This weekend I ate brunch at a local diner named “Rudy’s.” Clearly, Rudy was the owner, but I had no idea what he looked like. Then I saw that everyone on staff was wearing a T-shirt that said, “I’m Rudy.” Rudy’s T-shirts were of course referencing Spartacus. For those who don’t know that classic Stanley Kubrick movie based on history, it’s about a
A recent report from the Pecan Street Research Institute started a chain of articles with increasingly inaccurate conclusions.
Many see energy storage as the holy grail for renewable energy integration. We think it's important enough that we recently added a new technology category to our site to track this topic. We see a lot of headlines related to energy storage cross our desks; here's a sampling from the past few days.
They both are good for you and worth the price if they are of high quality. But just because a chocolate bar is advertised to gourmet foodies as the finest, it may not be the best, lacking the right ingredients to be true chocolate. Same is the case for credentials. A certification can be packaged nicely, even advertised as top shelf, yet what’s
One of my favorite parts of attending a conference is the opportunity to take a tour of a renewable energy installation. During Renewable Energy World Conference, North America, attendees were given the opportunity to visit the Duke Energy owned and operated Stanton Solar Array in Orange County Florida. The solar farm was built by the Orlando Util
The U.S. market for wind energy is something of a contradiction: it's one of the world's larger markets and fastest growing with its own supply chain, yet it's still heavily reliant upon a production tax credit, which was renewed at the last minute last December (yet late with enough uncertainty to chill many projects in the pipeline), and this time its renewal is even less certain.
With the help of a new method called "dual-electrode photoelectrochemistry," University of Oregon scientists in the U.S. have provided new insight into how solar water-splitting cells work. An important and overlooked parameter, they report, is the ion-permeability of electrocatalysts used in water-splitting devices.
The UK government has today published subsidies for renewable energy generation from next year. Strike prices are the minimum sum the government will pay power companies for electricity they generate and form part of the Electricity Market Reform, a package of measures designed to stimulate up to £110bn of investment in low carbon energy.
China doubled the pace of adding renewable energy capacity in the first 10 months of the year as the government worked to cut pollution in its largest cities.
