A contract for very cheap solar power in New Mexico shows the synergies to be realized from well-planned solar-wind hybrid project, researchers say.
A Siemens factory in Fort Madison, Iowa, will be humming again, making the blades for 448 giant wind turbines.
Scientists propose a way to send carbon dioxide underground, then use it to boost energy generation by at least 10 times compared to conventional geothermal.
The Navy, seeking energy security, will make biofuel blends a regular part of its bulk fuel purchases.
Taller wind turbines – and those in California – could present a greater risk to birds, according to a new study.
A $25/metric ton tax on GHG emissions would yield net budget savings of $1.06 trillion over ten years, the Congressional Budget Office reports.
With more than 2,300 megawatts under construction, a year that started off with virtually no new wind power being installed in the U.S. might just finish decently.
That’s right, researchers say: Staggering the placement of offshore wind turbines in every other row boosted power production greatly.
A U.S. turnaround in new installations in the next year or so should help, but in the first half of 2013, wind power on a global scale was in the doldrums.
The real threat to birds? It’s not wind turbines, according to a new study out of Canada that calls into question some often-cited mortality figures.
U.S. geothermal leaders say educating, lobbying, innovating and cost-cutting can help the industry fully join the renewables revolution.
The federal government shutdown’s impact on renewable energy figures to be minor, at most, unless it drags on for several weeks.
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is pressing a California wind power plant operator to save golden eagles to make up for the turbines’ impacts.
California is using more and more renewable energy and what do you know, the lights are still on.
