Before we begin to address the challenges inherent in the British medium-scale wind industry, it will make sense to develop a wider picture of the sector as things stand.
Operators of a wind farm in waters off Fukushima prefecture, site of the March 2011 nuclear disaster, aim to cut the cost of setting up the floating turbines by half as they push to commercialize the technology.
Is having local control of a utility the key to ramping up renewable energy? In 2011, Boulder citizens voted to have their city take over the electric utility, joining 1 in 7 Americans served by municipal electric utilities. Their feasibility study suggests they can more than double renewable energy on their system to over 50 percent, slashing gre
Wind power in the U.K. rose to a record, leading operators from RWE AG to SSE Plc to halt more expensive gas-fired power generation plants.
European Union countries approved an agreement with China to curb imports of Chinese solar panels, ending the EU’s biggest commercial dispute of its kind.
I thought I’d get into the Christmas spirit in this first work day after Thanksgiving in the US, so let’s take a look at what solar panel makers LDK (NYSE: LDK) and Trina (NYSE: TSL) are getting in their holiday stockings with the latest company news reports. It seems the struggling LDK won’t be getting much, with word that a Chinese court has adde
The success of the renewable energy market is partly illustrated by the rapidly increasing number of small renewable energy systems connecting directly to the distribution grid. For this changing market to continue to thrive, we must ensure that these systems can access the grid in a safe, efficient and cost-effective manner. And this means acknow
Last month the European Ocean Energy Association hosted its first conference outside Brussels at Dynamic Earth in Edinburgh. It was a great event.
Gift-giving is a tradition during this holiday season, and what could be a better gift than clean energy? But many of the organizations that need solar the most just simply cannot afford the up-front cost. And ironically, since they are non-profits, they are not eligible for the 30 percent Investment Tax Credit.
India's solar market is on track to be roughly the same in 2013 as it was in 2012, which is surprising given the ~20 percent overall growth projected for global solar demand. But optimism and expectations continue to emerge for India's solar potential.
An innovative Office of Naval Research (ONR) program is looking to Navy, Marine Corps and Coast Guard veterans for the cutting edge in alternative energy-and is highlighted this week in a new video released during the Navy's Warrior Care Month.

The seismograph shows that
The decrease in the cost of photovoltaic modules has created a boom in the market, which paved the way for rapid construction of PV systems for residential and commercial customers in the United States and the rest of the world. The Solar Energy Industries Association reported that for Q1 2013, residential and some non-residential projects in California have achieved 'retail rate parity'.
The European Union imposed tariffs as high as 42.1 percent on solar glass from China to curb import competition for EU producers, heightening trade tensions over renewable energy.
There are no plans for new coal plants to be built in the United States. This opens doors for the geothermal industry possibly more than ever before in U.S. history. In an Energy Information Administration (EIA) forecast to 2018, coal was one of the top-cost commissioning technology options; geothermal was one of the lowest.
Fuel prices are rising again, and as they go up, they tend to slow economic growth by increasing costs for businesses and eating away at household discretionary budgets. Today, consumers have a wider range of options than ever for buying hybrid, plug-in or full electric vehicles to help reduce their fuel costs. However, businesses are far behind consumers in their adoption rate of hybrid and electric vehicles. The good news is that high fuel prices create conditions in which hybrids - especially lower up-front cost, charge-sustaining hybrids - become sound business investments. Businesses that take action now will outperform their competitors.
I haven’t written about LDK Solar (NYSE: LDK) for a while, so it seems like the release of its latest quarterly results might be a good chance for a final look before the lights go off permanently at this struggling solar panel maker. Somewhat appropriately, LDK announced its results on the same day it also said it continues to negotiate with inter
German Chancellor Angela Merkel and her prospective coalition partners agreed to more tightly control the expansion of clean energy to contain costs.
It's been a good couple of weeks for the benchmark third-party solar installer, from financing to expansion, and it's quieted a pesky argument too.
