The increasing size of wind turbines captures much of the attention surrounding that evolution, but the substructures that support the tower, nacelle and blades, are not to be overlooked, and are proving equally vital in reducing overall project costs.
U.S. Sens. Ron Wyden, D-Ore., Jeff Merkley, D-Ore., Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, and Patty Murray, D-Wash., today announced funding will be awarded to build the United States’ first open-ocean, power grid-connected wave energy test facility at a site off the Oregon coast, according to a U.S. Senate press release.
The government of New South Wales, Australia, on Dec. 16 issued a call for energy storage proposals to help wind and solar generators deliver energy to the grid constantly.
Jenn Runyon, Chief Editor of Renewable Energy World and Paula Mints, Chief Market Research Analyst with SPV Market Research discuss three hot topics in the global solar industry for three minutes each. Today’s topics include a wrap up of the REWI conference, how Rick Perry could change the U.S. Department of Energy and solar tax credits. Check it out.
I promised to describe A Republican Energy Efficiency Reinvestment Act (AREER); the beginning of an idea I thought would fit neatly within the policy parameters of the incoming administration.
Like a lot of Americans who work in clean energy, I worried coming into the election about what a Trump presidency might mean for our industry and all of the public benefits it provides.
In many ways this has been a strong year for fuel cells, with the total number of shipments up again — by two-thirds on 2015 — and transport-related shipments in particular having doubled to 280 MW.
In addition to Solar Gardens initiative, Minnesota’s Value of Solar Tariff (VOST) initiative was seen as the first large-scale stage for the new calculation methodology originally pioneered by Austin Energy.
Building energy infrastructure that keeps wildlife safe is a key concern at the U.S. Department of Energy, which is why we have funded six teams to improve technologies that will protect eagles sharing airspace with wind turbines. More than $3 million has been allocated across the six teams for groundbreaking, critical eagle-impact minimization technology research, development, and demonstration projects.
