After two years of negotiations, the South Carolina House of Representatives voted unanimously on new legislation to promote solar in the Palmetto State. As a result of the South Carolina Distributed Energy Resource Act (S.B. 1189), Sol Systems expects the South Carolina solar market to expand from a mere 8 MW to 300 MW or more by 2021. Here’s how.
Gevo Inc.’s biofuels plant in Minnesota, which has suffered production delays because of contamination, may break even by the end of 2014 as output of ethanol and isobutanol from agricultural waste increase.
Sharp Corp., the Japanese company that stopped making solar panels in the U.S. and the U.K., is betting power users in the U.S. will benefit from a device to store energy and control demand when it’s needed the most.
Clustered deep beneath the trading floors of Goldman Sachs Group Inc.’s Manhattan headquarters are 92 tanks with enough ice for 3.4 million margaritas.
SunPower Corp., the second-largest U.S. solar manufacturer, is planning a new factory that will expand production capacity by more than 50 percent from current levels, in an effort to increase market share.
Tesla Motors Inc. said it’s broken ground near Reno for a $5 billion battery plant, signaling Nevada has vaulted to the lead of five states vying for the so-called gigafactory and its promise of 6,500 jobs.
The war of words against Chinese solar panel makers is heating up from both sides of the Atlantic, with growing signs that Europe may reconsider anti-dumping duties as the U.S. moves closer to imposing its own new duties on the beleaguered manufacturers. Meantime, two of the biggest Chinese victims of the sector’s recent turmoil have risen from the
Arizona Public Service (APS) decided this week that they would like to get into the rooftop solar business. I think they should too, but not like this. Their proposal is terrible for customers. After spending over $10 million in an attempt to impose a $50-100 monthly fee on solar customers, APS has decided to pay you $30 per month for 20 years if y
The visual below, prepared by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), shows the average length of time for the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) review process for geothermal projects as compared to the timelines for average solar and wind development, as well as for oil and gas. The longer lead time for geothermal projects is something that re
Island populations may bear the brunt of climate change more than other populations, so it should be no surprise that some islands have ramped up efforts to convert to non-fossil fuel energy sources. In the brief span of five years, the U.S. Virgin Islands have cut their oil consumption by 20 percent.
What do megajoules have to do with hectoliters? Everything, if you are considering the energy intensity of manufacturing beer. And after a recent tour of the New Belgium Brewing Company in Fort Collins, I’ve learned that when it comes to a commitment to renewable energy and energy efficiency in beer brewing, Colorado’s thriving craft brewing scene is a great example.
American investor-backed LNK has added the fifth biogas power facility to the already four operating in war-torn Ukraine. Since the outset of the LNK presence in Ukraine the company has seen the country’s need to gain more energy independence and sought to help provide more sources for domestic energy.
On Tuesday, July 29, there were two hearings in U.S. Congress subcommittees that are significant to the geothermal industry. A House subcommittee discussed three bills, with two specifically relating to geothermal development, while a Senate subcommittee looked at permitting needs.
Panasonic Corp. agreed to help set up the battery factory that Tesla Motors Inc. Chairman Elon Musk needs to sell more electric cars, without settling its share of the investment costs.
It’s hot in Bakersfield, California, especially during the summer months when temperatures regularly hit 110 degrees. But as The Hampton Inn & Suites Bakersfield North-Airport is discovering, the sun also has its advantages for reducing utility costs and increasing customer acquisition and satisfaction when the hotel goes solar. The attractively
Think of a product — chances are that Hawaii has to import it. From food and cars to electronics and building materials, there are few areas where the U.S. state is self-sufficient — and energy is no different.
Wind power is increasingly becoming an established source of energy. High oil prices, global warming concerns and the nuclear disaster in Fukushima have all contributed to more people looking at renewable energy sources such as wind power. Germany, for example, has decided to gradually phase-out nuclear power by 2022. Wind power will be the backbone of this energy transition — by the year 2050 it should cover about half of German electricity.
Arizona Public Service Co., the first U.S. utility to charge extra fees for customers with solar systems, is requesting permission to own its own residential systems and to pay rent for the rooftops.
SMA Solar Technology AG, Germany’s biggest solar company, said it may lose as much as 45 million euros ($60 million) this year because of “stagnating” demand in the solar industry. Shares fell the most in seven months.
France’s planned energy law will mobilize about €10 billion (US $13.4 billion) in investment through tax credits and low-interest loans to spur efficiency and renewable power, Environment Minister Segolene Royal said.
