China Everbright International last week said that it has placed the second phase of its Nanjing waste-to-energy project into commercial operation. Nanjing phase two is designed with a daily household waste processing capacity of 2,000 metric tons, with a total investment of approximately RMB980 million (US$142 million).
The International Energy Agency will help support Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s goal to spread solar power to more developing nations, especially those clustered around the Equator.
Miami-based EAWC Technologies last week said it is expanding its plan to build several waste-to-energy (WtE) power plants in Mexico. The company signed a revised agreement with Mexico-based Tecnologias Verdes SA de CV to construct a WtE power plant in Chiapas in southern Mexico — the first of five planned for the area.
The first 110-MW unit of the Sarulla geothermal project began commercial operations in late March. When completed, the full project in Indonesia’s North Sumatra will have a capacity of about 380 MW. The project combines flash and binary geothermal technologies.
The Ohio House of Representatives yesterday voted 65-31 to pass a bill that would end the state’s current mandate for the amount of renewable energy utilities must provide customers in Ohio.
For over a century, the landscape north of Kimberley, British Columbia, was used for intensive industrial hard-rock mining — but now it’s home to the largest solar farm in all of British Columbia. Over the decades, the site of Teck’s (formerly Cominco’s) Sullivan Mine hosted a steel mill, fertilizer plant and tailings ponds, rendering the area tree-less for the foreseeable future.
There are six oddly-named streams in the bioeconomy, and it reminds one of the nomenclature of subatomic quarks. There is upstream, midstream, downstream, main-stream, waste-stream, and slip-stream. But of all the streams, perhaps there is nothing so vital yet muddled as the identity of the mainstream and that of the slipstreams.
China’s solar PV industry continued its recovery in 2016, with gross output value reaching 336 billion yuan (US$49 billion), a rise of 27 percent compared to 2015, according to statistics released by the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology of China.
Last year marked the first time since 2013 that solar energy growth outpaced wind energy, according to a new report from the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA). Solar saw a record 71 GW of new capacity in 2016, while wind increased by 51 GW.
The President announced on Tuesday, March 28th at the Environmental Protection Agency his new Executive Order based on protecting 75,000 US coal jobs by threatening over 3 million US clean energy jobs.
According to MorningConsult
The order directs officials to review the Environmental Protection Agency regulations on new and existing power plants, withdraw the Obama administration’s “social cost of carbon,” which puts a price on greenhouse gas emissions, end a moratorium on new coal leases on federal land, review regulations on methane emissions from natural gas systems, end a guidance for agencies to consider climate change, and end Bureau of Land Management restrictions on hydraulic fracturing.
The Trump administration has not yet released the text of the order which is based solely on saving coal and other fossil jobs, but a senior White House official shared details with reporters in a call on March 27th.
