The U.K. should hold competitive auctions for most renewable power contracts to bring down technology costs and lower the impact on consumer electricity bills, an analyst linked to the ruling Conservative Party said.
Proposals for a 1,200-MW offshore wind farm off the U.K. coast have been dropped by developers ScottishPower Renewables.
IT runs deep in my family and circle of friends, with an emphasis on programming: everything from MUMPS to Ruby on Rails, and SUDO is a legitimate debate-winning tactic. I, however, can barely hand-code my own light HTML. Thankfully there's the TopCoder community that's more than half a million strong of digital creators, developers, and artists. A
Renewable energy resources can possibly provide effective sustainable energy solutions. However, the application of solar energy for power generation purposes is not currently competitive with conventional fossil fuel systems.
Since 2009, I’ve written down my solar marketing wishes for the upcoming new year and their bottom line benefits. If you and your team have granted my previous year’s wishes, bless your solar marketing hearts. If not, here’s your chance for 2014. As you’ll see, my 2014 wishes have a very visual message: 1) Be bold for solar. Continue your solar gue
If you are building a house — or remodeling the one you're already in — now is the time to install rooftop solar. This is your opportunity to install solar on the best roof surface, in a uniform rectangular array, and integrated cleanly with your electrical system. Don't wait until construction is finished — you'll inevitably get a bunch of vent pipes right in the middle of the best south-facing rooftop.
With Developer RWE Innogy shelving plans for the 240-turbine Atlantic Array project in the Bristol Channel, there is likely to be even greater interest in the role solar energy can play in the UK meeting its renewable energy targets.
A new jack-up vessel for the construction of offshore wind farms has been commissioned by Hochtief.
It's that time of year, time to wrestle with the wallet, brave the shopping malls, or surf online for deals. If you're in a renewable energy state of mind this season, we've got you covered -- here are a handful of gift ideas for you and those special someones on your list.
If you are a solar developer wondering why any of your projects has had difficulty securing third party financing, have no fear; our developer advisory services team has put together a list of four common project pitfalls that may kill your solar deal, as well as strategies to overcome them. By identifying fatal flaws early, developers can reduce s
Are we seeing deja-vu in today's concentrated solar photovoltaic (CPV) market from the 2007-2008 period of solar PV? That's what one analyst says, offering as evidence wide technology advancements, a ramp-up in demand, and rapidly decreasing cost projections.
Continuing a tradition since 2007, once again we bring you some end-of-year thoughts about where we think the cleantech investment theme is going. Our cleantech-specific analysis and advisory firm Kachan & Co. focuses on this space. We publish research reports. We get briefings from companies introducing new technology. We publish a cleantech analy
Holders of Ram Power Corp. (TSX:RPG, OTC:RAMPF) on November 26 (the “record date”) recieved valuable coupons as the result of the company’s rights offering, announced November 18th. Just in time for the holidays, these coupons, or “rights” can be used to buy additional shares of Ram Power for 8¢ Canadian per share any time before 5:00 p.m. on December 23rd. (Disclosure: I am long Ram Power stock.)
Developing countries that are interested in geothermal energy may see transformational results by approaching World Bank and other institutions, as Djibouti did. In an interview, the World Bank Djibouti geothermal project team talks about the project investment, lessons from Kenya’s experience, and preparations that are being made for the private sector to take up the next steps.
According to the World Energy Council’s latest World Energy Resources (WER) report, hydropower already provides a substantial proportion of energy worldwide, contributing approximately 15 percent of global electricity production. Indeed in several countries, for example Iceland, Nepal and Mozambique, hydropower accounts for over half of all electricity generation.
When it comes to renewable energy, you could call it the “shot heard round the world.” According to a new report by GTM Research and the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA), the U.S. installed 930 megawatts (MW) of photovoltaics (PV) in Q3 2013, up 20 percent over Q2 2013 and 35 percent over Q3 2012. This represents the second largest quarte
Japan's solar market continues to race ahead: domestic solar demand is surging, to the point where it's bottlenecked behind expectations. And what's that sound of tiny footsteps approaching?
Ramone van Wyk’s wage more than quadrupled when he gave up working on sheep farms in South Africa’s arid Northern Cape province and got a job assembling a solar-thermal power plant for Abengoa SA.
The current status of the proposed SunZia Southwest Transmission Project, designed to enable the development and export of renewable energy from eastern New Mexico to markets in the West, could be described with a series of The Beatles’ song titles.
Renewable electricity records are falling every day. In early October, Germany recently hit a 59 percent renewable peak, Colorado utility Xcel Energy peaked at 60 percent wind at the beginning of the year, and Spain got its top power supply from wind for three months leading into 2013. But that’s chump change compared with Denmark. According to dat
