WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) announced up to $14.5 million in new funding to advance geothermal energy development. The Efficient Drilling for Geothermal Energy (EDGE) funding opportunity announcement (FOA) will focus on geothermal drilling in support of accelerating the research and development of innovative geothermal energy technologies in America. “Advancing research in geothermal… Keep reading →

Energy Independence In The Age Of Renewables

New Combined Electricity Project Connect Spain and France

Facing the traditional energy sector’s uncertain future and the decreased cost of producing renewable energy, many companies have taken to generating their own power.

Australia’s Bass Strait on the southern end of the country may come to be the site of the country’s first offshore wind farm and a model for the future of green energy in the land down under. The Star of the South project could have as many as 250 turbines which generate enough renewable energy to power over a million homes.

California is known across the nation not just as the most populous state in the union, or the home of Hollywood, America’s entertainment capital, but also for having very progressive environmental policies. These ambitious policies have set California up to be the most environmentally friendly state in the nation as far as its power consumption goes. Last year, California, Oregon, and Washington all adopted a series of legally binding renewable energy targets, known as the Pacific Coast Action Plan on Climate and Energy (PCAPCE).

Last week Germany paved the way for a major upgrade in its renewable energy capacity when it approved onshore wind parks capable of producing 807 megawatts (MW) of power. This clean energy comes with an economic bonus since the final price tag for electricity from the project come in lower than expected requiring a subsidy of just 5.71 euro cents per kilowatt hour. Subsidies at that level mark a 20% reduction in price from previous projects, causing the German government to state competition in the industry is bringing down prices for consumers.

So far 2017 has been a great year for wind power with over 900 utility scale turbines installed in the first quarter of the year. These new turbines are capable of producing nearly 2000 megawatts making Q1 of 2017 the strongest quarter for wind energy production capacity in nearly a decade. Wind energy now accounts for nearly 6% of the United States total generating capacity. This figure will rise in the near future when near term pipeline projects capable of producing nearly 21,000 megawatts come online.

As of last week, over 1,000 businesses and organizations signed a letter that urges the United States Congress to defend and strengthen the Energy Star program. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency runs the Energy Star labeling initiative, which awards the Energy Star label to efficient appliances. The Energy Star initiative was originally started under President… Keep reading →

New York State is ready to jump-start energy storage and renewable resource projects to modernize their energy grid.  To do so, the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) is offering project managers the chance to receive funding from a fund worth $15.5 million.  This money is just one part of a larger, Clean… Keep reading →
