Utility companies, that’s who. David Roberts over at Grist has just posted a fantastic series stemming from a report by the Edison Electronic Institute’s that outlines how the success of small-scale renewables could make utility companies, as we know them, obsolete. Roberts doesn’t skimp on details about how utilities operate or why the Edison Institute’s [...]
Under a new partnership with the U.S. Photovoltaic Consortium (PVMC) and Ceres Technologies the University of Albany’s College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering’s Albany NanoTech Complex CNSE will work towards developing the next generation of PV manufacturing equipment. The $20 million is supported partly by the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) SunShot Initiative. But it’s [...]
I am still working on the weekly news roundup but this news about waste-to-energy keep popping up on my email inbox so we might as well take a brief look and see what’s going on in this sector. I have written an article on ICIS Chemical Business about the waste plastic-to-energy market last year where [...]
Envision Solar, which builds high-quality and architecturally stunning solar canopies, is expanding into the Middle East. The California company is partnering with Aconfort, a member of Al Habtoor Enterprises, to market its solar canopies in the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and Spain. “I have lived and worked in the Middle East,” said Desmond [...]
When we think of alternate sources of power, geothermal energy is not something that comes to mind instantly. The image of clean energy has always been linked with solar, wind and even tidal power. But somehow the energy that lays dormant beneath our very own feet has always been ignored. Maybe it is just our [...]
Jim Walker remembers when nuclear-energy-generated electricity was going to be too cheap to meter and when a law prevented the use of U.S. natural gas supplies for electricity generation. Dr. Walker, an energy advisor in the Nixon and Ford administrations, was appointed to the California Energy Commission during the first Brown gubernatorial tenure and helped [...]
See foryourself how solar is working for America. Following the sun across thenation, the SEIA film crew take a first-hand look at how solar isworking for America and meet today’s solar generation: the projectdevelopers, manufacturers, installers and of course, the clients – thepeople who are using solar power in its various forms for their homes,businesses [...]
Green Thinking Services, ltd., dedicated to providing green power conferences dedicated to the sustainability sector, is putting on its 3rd annual Solar Power Generation USA conference January 25-26, 2011, in Las Vegas, Nevada. The conference aims atdriving utility-scale solar power development in the United States. Last year’s conference featured more than 60 guest speakers with [...]
Solergy Inc., developers of the next generation of high concentratedphotovoltaic technology (HCPV), announced the launch and introduction of two unique flagship products: Solergy CPV and Solergy Cogen CPV. In addition to the company launch, Solergy and the Italian Civil AviationAuthority (ENAC) jointly announced their agreement to install a CogenCPV power plant at the Pantelleria Airport [...]
Nonprofit New Generation Energy (NGE) has launched its Green Energy Project Microfunding site. New Generation Energy’s microfunding site is similar to other microfinancesites, but support is in the form of a donation rather than a loan, andemphasis is placed on project metrics such as energy savings andgreenhouse gas emissions reduction. Any U.S.-based nonprofitorganization may apply [...]
The California Public Utility Commission has awarded a $1.5 milliongrant to finance Cogenra Solar’s full scale 272 kW demonstrationprototype of solar hybrid co-generation of heat and electricityprototype. Intended for the mid-sized commercial market, the prototypeaims at reducing solar costs by producing both electricity and heat from one unit. The solar-cogen comprises of a long narrow [...]
The New York Public Service Commission approved changes to the state’s net-metering rules to eliminate thepeak load limitation on the size of a non-residential customer’s solaror wind energy system. As a result of the change, businesses and farmsin New York can now install larger sized non-residential photovoltaicand wind generating systems. Chapter 7 of the 2010 [...]
