Abengoa SA is beginning the $600 million initial public offering of its renewable energy unit, in a spinoff that’s being imitated by companies including SunEdison Inc.
Nuclear power, which accounts for 19 percent of the nation's electricity generation, is facing some serious challenges. Not only did its hoped-for renaissance fizzle out, four reactors shut down last year, another is closing this fall, and the nuclear giant Exelon says it will announce plant closings by the end of this year if market conditions don't improve.
Japan said the U.S.’s proposed cuts in greenhouse-gas emissions from its power plants is a bold step to tackle climate change.
In a history-making move for clean energy, the Obama administration today, for the first time, proposed a rule to restrict carbon dioxide on existing power plants.
Once again, the Court of Appeals for the DC Circuit has ruled that the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) has overstepped its jurisdictional bounds. Last year, the DC Circuit rejected FERC’s presumption of authority to fine energy trader Brian Hunter for manipulating the natural gas futures market. This time, the DC Circuit struck down O
As part of a preview of this fall's WindEnergy expo in Hamburg, officials from Hamburg Messe whisked a group of international journalists around the region to see wind energy companies and projects in action, putting the nation's momentum and support for renewables on display.
New Carbon Pollution Standards Can Create 274,000 Jobs, Save $37 Billion on Energy Bills, Says Report
Carbon pollution standards for power plants — like the proposed standards that President Obama will unveil today — can protect our pocketbooks as well as our health, according to a new study.
At the turn of the 20th Century, it took only 13 years to replace the the horse and carriage with automobiles. A system that had dominated for centuries as a preferred means of transport was displaced seemingly over night.. Today, transportation is witnessing another technological shift to electric plug-in and extended range vehicles. However, four
There’s bad news in the pipeline for Germany’s small-scale producers of renewable energy, the backbone of the country’s heralded Energiewende, or clean-energy transition.
Electric utilities seeking the renewal of their franchises, and politicians seeking municipalization, both ignore the transformative possibilities of the microgrid. Microgrids represent a promising new business opportunity for both existing utilities and new entrants in the electricity business. Microgrid deployment will also provide the same public benefits as municipal control, likely more.
Next week, the International Trade Commission (ITC) plans to announce its initial decision regarding the expansion of the trade restrictions on imported Chinese, Taiwanese and other solar cells and modules in response to a complaint filed by SolarWorld earlier this year. This decision comes on the back of a previous finding in 2012 that imposed both anti-subsidy and anti-dumping tariffs on Chinese-manufactured solar cells. Barring an eleventh-hour agreement to settle the claim, the solar industry in the U.S. is going to suffer from this litigation. And unless this trade dispute is settled soon, both sides will lose out.
The news couldn’t have come at a better time. With the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) poised to announce enhanced air quality standards for coal and natural-gas fired power plants next week, new figures released today show solar energy in America continues its remarkable growth. Driven by strong year-over-year growth in the utility and resi
Iceland is moving closer to plugging European homes into the volcanic island nation’s geothermal and hydropower reserves via what would be the world’s longest power cable, according to the country’s largest energy producer.
With billions of dollars of prospective markets for renewable energy and energy efficiency in the federal government sector, I am astonished at how uncoordinated companies are in this area. As one who guides federal facility managers, as well as companies aspiring to enter the market, I have some first hand perspective.
SunEdison Inc., the best-performing U.S. solar company this year, is planning an initial public offering for a unit that was formed to own and operate renewable-power plants.
A World War II-era power plant that has provided energy to much of the Missouri University of Science and Technology campus for nearly seven decades is powering down as the university makes the transition to a geothermal energy system.
When someone gets a new rooftop solar installation, the second question they always ask is "how often do I need to clean my solar panels." We'll answer that question on today's show — taking into account the different effects of rain, dust and electric rates (BTW, the first question people always ask is "how do I read my electric bill;" but that's a topic for another show).
