India plans to award licenses for an additional 1,000 megawatts of solar power plants in the next year, about 30 percent more than originally targeted and equivalent to about half the capacity built so far.
Wind power capacity has increased dramatically in the U.S. recently — and accompanying that, the turbines that produce it have become more powerful, more efficient and more affordable for power producers.
When considering off-grid, renewable sources of energy to power sensors, meters, pumps, controllers and communication links at remote industrial sites, the options typically come down to two: solar or wind.
Brazil is reportedly planning its first-ever national solar-specific energy auction to be held by the Ministry of Mines and Energy (MME).
California can feel good about the fact that it has more than half of all the solar rooftops in America, but now there’s even more to celebrate — the 100,000th such installation and the commitment it signifies. This milestone demonstrates the substantial opportunity we have to make use of this ample and clean energy source — the sun — and the impo
Chancellor Angela Merkel’s government may soften a proposal to cut support for the wind industry in a bid to appease regions concerned about job losses, the premier of the nation’s top wind state said.
On the same day the world's scientists issued their latest report on climate change and the risks it poses to society, the nation's biggest oil and gas company said the world's climate policies are "highly unlikely" to stop it from selling fossil fuels far into the future.
Forty years ago Sabana Grande, a small community in northern Nicaragua, was ravaged by war. Now you will find people sitting under solar-powered lights, eating solar-cooked chicken, and drinking smoothies made by a bicycle-powered blender. Sabana Grande (pop. 2,000), in the mountains of Totogalpa, about 20 miles from the Honduran border, has embraced a solar culture that has transformed the community.
Borrego Solar Systems and the San Diego County Regional Airport Authority on March 31 announced a partnership to develop a 3.3-MW solar system on the roof of the newly expanded Terminal 2 West at San Diego International Airport (SDIA) and in a section the Terminal 2 short-term parking lot adjacent to terminal.
Algae are organisms useful in many ways in the transition towards a bio-economy. Even in a cool climate as in Finland, algae might be used to produce biochemicals and biofuels, besides use in capture of industrial carbon dioxide emissions. The ALGIDA project coordinated by VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland explored algae growing in Finland.
In yet one more example of the rising interest in how microgrids that incorporate renewable energy and energy storage will change the energy landscape, Missouri University of Science and Technology (MST) has created what it says is the first “Solar Village” in the U.S.
The American Wind Energy Association (AWEA) issued a report seeking to refute some power industry criticism about the market effects of wind.
First Solar Inc., the largest U.S. solar-panel maker, is close to announcing agreements to supply its technology to remote mining projects in Australia to help resources companies save on fuel costs.
General Electric Co. studied fuel cells and determined the technology is too dependent on platinum to be more than a niche product.
The U.K. Green Investment Bank placed 461 million pounds ($767 million) into two wind farms off the British coast to help the developers recycle their cash back into new projects.
Hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEV) were the belles of the ball at recent auto shows in Los Angeles and Tokyo, and researchers at the Energy Department's National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) continue to play a key part in improving performance and durability while driving down costs.
In 2005, when atmospheric CO2 had climbed to 379 parts per million and Walmart's public approval rating had fallen to an all-time low, the company's then-CEO Lee Scott made a dramatic announcement. "Every company has a responsibility to reduce greenhouse gases as quickly as it can," Scott declared. He then pledged that Walmart would shift to 100 percent renewable power and become a leader on sustainability.
The New York Stock Exchange suspended trading of LDK Solar Co.’s American depositary receipts and initiated proceedings to delist the Chinese solar manufacturer because of “abnormally low” prices.
Good news from America’s heartland: A bipartisan coalition in the Kansas House stood with Kansans today in support of clean and renewable energy, turning back yet another attempt to repeal state Renewable Portfolio Standard aimed at fostering homegrown resources like wind and solar power. Specifically, 77 members of the Kansas House of Representati
#rewvideoid=3326897357001# When we consider the rapid rise of energy storage technology that we are witnessing all across the globe, it is key that we remember all of the reasons that this technology is and/or will be a key component in the grid of the future. Today’s energy storage is not just about having a battery backup for a solar PV system (
