Mandatory spending cuts triggered by the March 1st sequester (automatic spending cuts) in the U.S. are being felt across the renewable energy sector sparking fears that reduced federal investment could curtail research, development and commercialization of new renewable energy technologies.
Europe’s debate over the sustainability of its imported biomass feedstock is heating up.
Arizona regulatory staff recommended rejecting a proposal to reduce the price the state’s largest utility must pay for solar power produced by its customers.
Analysis of Chinese government policies at several levels suggest Chinese solar market growth could take off in late 2013 after a slow start to the year, as various projects finish their development phase and new incentives kick in.
The D.C. Council voted unanimously today, October 1st, to pass the Community Renewables Energy Act of 2013 (B20-0057). With this favorable vote, D.C. becomes the tenth state in the nation to enact community solar legislation. Other states of note that have passed similar legislation include Colorado, Massachusetts, Vermont, California, and, most
The federal government has officially shutdown as of midnight, October 1st 2013 due to Congress’s failure to pass a budget. The 2013 fiscal year ends on September 30th and the government required a new budget to continue operations. The government has been operating on a Continue Resolution — a CR, or an extension of the previous years budget, sinc
So here we are: the U.S. federal government is in shutdown mode after Congress failed to pass the budget. We've seen this several times in the past couple of decades, usually ranging from a few hours to a few days, though the most recent one lasted nearly a month from late 1995 into early January 1996.
A renewable industry investment executive told geothermal industry leaders in Las Vegas Monday (Sept. 30) that slow growth and unfair renewable tax incentives threatened the future of geothermal power.
Home furnishings major IKEA has announced a new partnership with thin-film solar panel manufacturer Hanergy that will see domestic-scale solar PV installations offered to customers in all of its UK retail outlets.
Municipal renewable energy initiatives are hardly a new concept. In many cases the main goal is a heightened environmental sensitivity, and often installing more renewable energy is just one component of broader policies that might also include eco-friendly transportation or more efficient waste management or a district heating system. In other examples, renewable energy has been identified as an engine for economic rejuvenation.
India may announce this month an auction of licenses to build solar-power plants after a gap of almost two years, offering developers as much as 3 billion rupees ($48 million) of direct grants for the first time.
At 7 megawatts (MW), Samsung Heavy Industries' S7.0-171 is the world's largest offshore wind turbine. The 196-metre tall structure is being installed 20 metres offshore in Fife, Scotland, with a connecting walkway to enable visitors to get up close to the structure.
Graphene is a crystalline form of carbon in which carbon atoms are arranged in a regular hexagonal pattern. It is very strong, light, and an excellent conductor of heat and electricity. It is also nearly transparent. New laboratory techniques for creating large sheets of graphene, including a roll-to-roll production process, have triggered an explosion of research into new practical applications taking advantage of graphene’s unique properties.
First Solar has added another mega-scale project to its pipeline, helping ensure there's enough to feed its thin-film solar PV manufacturing machine.
It’s that time of year again. We’ve narrowed down the solar, wind, geothermal, hydro and bioenergy finalists for the 2013 Project of the Year awards presented by Power Engineering and Renewable Energy World, and it’s your turn to vote for Readers’ Choice. Like last year, renewable projects from around the globe are up against coal, oil and gas — so
It’s an issue of national debate, but one unexpected state — Minnesota — is engaging a formal process for determining the methodology for setting the value of solar. As the first multi-utility process, it’s likely to set a precedent nationwide for what the “value of solar” will mean and whether it will aid the continued growth of distributed solar
Today's global energy market is in the midst of a paradigm shift, from a model dominated by large centralized power plants owned by big utilities to a mixed bag of so-called distributed energy generation facilities — smaller residential, commercial and industrial power generation systems — many of which use renewable resources.
According to the most recent issue of the "Monthly Energy Review" by the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA), with data through June 30, 2013, renewable energy sources (i.e., biofuels, biomass, hydropower, geothermal, solar, and wind) provided 9.81 percent of U.S. energy consumption and 11.82 percent of domestic energy production for the first half of 2013.
Geothermal energy, one of the "forgotten renewables," powers 4,419 MW, or just more than 1 percent, of planned capacity in the U.S., surpassing only planned biomass-fueled capacity in the renewables sector. Geothermal heat currently powers just 2,751 MW.
