China’s determination to reduce its carbon footprint and increase electricity production in rural areas is good news for the nation’s wind power market, according to a new study.
Mitsubishi Corp. (8058), a Japanese trading company, acquired 50 percent stakes in two solar power stations in France from EDF Energies Nouvelles SA.
The hunt is on for technologies that use carbon dioxide and non-potable water since they are available in such tantalizing abundance. So, lets dig into one of the most interesting ways to make renewable fuels to appear in a month of Sundays.
It’s one of those mixed bags. Colorado’s largest utility, Xcel Energy, which does business in the state as Public Service Company of Colorado has filed with the Colorado Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) to extend its Solar*Rewards program, which is good. But at the same time it would gut its support of rooftop solar by reducing the amount it pays
If you haven’t heard the big solar news, a Washington Post reporter has confirmed from an anonymous source that the Obama Administration is finally following through with Secretary Chu’s promise to put solar panels back on the White House. Anyone who’s followed this Solar Fred blog on Renewable Energy World knows that getting solar on the White Hou
Photovoltaic (PV) microinverters, traditionally used in smaller rooftop solar installations, are being used in a 2.3-MW commercial rooftop installation in Ontario, Canada, supplier Enphase Energy has announced. The installation is the largest commercial rooftop project under the province’s feed-in tariff (FiT).
I bet you didn't know that on cool days there is heat that can be extracted from the air. Even better, you can get heat from ground water or underground sources. And you don't have to be in a volcanically active area. Heat pumps are basically air conditioners that run in reverse — but they are designed to extract heat from the air, water or ground (cooling these heat reservoirs in the process).
The latest news from Canadian Solar (Nasdaq: CSIQ) and Suntech (NYSE: STP) is casting a shadow over a nascent recovery for the embattled solar sector, as each company struggles to fix its broken finances pummeled by a two-year downturn. Canadian Solar has announced a plan to raise up to $50 million through a stock sale, while domestic media are re
August 14, 2003, was a dark day in U.S. history — in a lot of different ways. It started off as a quiet Thursday. Then a single tree limb in Ohio came crashing down, touching off a power outage which cascaded across eight states and parts of Canada, leaving 50 million Americans in the Northeast in the dark. Commuters were stranded. Businesses cl
IBM has decloaked a system combining weather modeling, sensors, and analytics to better forecast a wind farm's output from minutes to weeks away, helping utilities and grid operators more confidently integrate an intermittent energy source.
The high upfront cost of solar has always been a barrier to participation for many who would otherwise welcome the chance to green their energy supply. So has a lack of roof ownership for renters. These factors, along with other barriers have given solar somewhat of a reputation — that it's really only a feasible option for the wealthier homeowne
India’s Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) has published a report detailing the significant potential for offshore wind energy in the country.
As the number of coal mining jobs continues to decline throughout the U.S., more unemployed miners are finding work above ground — in the clean energy industry, ironically. A group called The JOBS Project has been working for the past three years to help workers throughout Central Appalachia obtain renewable energy jobs in coal-dominated states lik
Good metal-based systems for hydrogen storage cannot be developed without knowing how this element permeates through metals. Researchers at the Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Warsaw managed to apply a user-friendly electrochemical method to study hydrogen diffusion in highly reactive metals.
