Deepwater Wind Files Final Federal, State Permits for Block Island Wind Farm

October 4th, 2012 | by Andrew

Said to be "the most thorough study ever conducted of a U.S. offshore wind farm,” Deepwater Wind invested three-years and $7 million in completing the permit applications for the proposed 30-MW Block Island Wind Farm, a project that management sees as a stepping stone on the path toward carrying out much larger projects off the US northeast and mid-Atlantic coast


Stimulus to Power Asia-Pacific Solar PV Demand to New Heights in Q4

August 28th, 2012 | by Andrew

A confluence of solar PV stimulus programs will power 80% growth in the Asia-Pacific region in Q4 2012, as demand shifts from Europe to emerging solar PV markets around the world, according to an NPD SolarBuzz forecast. Solar PV capacity is surging in major economic zones around the world, but government incentive programs in China, India, and Japan will make the APAC region the fastest growing.


Fuel Cells: A Clean Energy Alternative at New World Trade Center, New York City’s Octagon

December 18th, 2011 | by Andrew

Fuel cells stack up well when comparing clean energy alternatives, and they're increasingly being considered as sources of grid-tied and independent heat and power in stationary and mobile applications. Two recent fuel cell systems installations in New York City - at the new World Trade Center and at The Octagon, a mixed use development on Roosevelt Island - are good examples


Clean Energy Leaders Unite, Write Congress to Extend 1603 Tax Credit Grants

December 2nd, 2011 | by Andrew

A coalition of clean energy economy leaders and stakeholders has sent Congress a letter urging them to extend the Treasury Section 1603 grant program through 2012. Enacted to sustain investment flows in the wake of the 2008 financial systems collapse and due to expire at year-end, the 1603 grant program has been central to the continued growth and development of clean energy across the US in all its forms in ensuing years

SunScience a Game Changer in Delivering Solar Energy Benefits to Farmers, Off-Grid Communities & Disaster Areas

June 2nd, 2011 | by David L Roberts

When you think of solar energy, you tend to think of decades-old, inefficient photovoltaic panels delivering electricity. You think of them in fixed positions on the ground in massive utility-scale arrays and on rooftops of businesses, government buildings, and homes. Think again, because SunScience has developed as the flagship of their product line a "hybrid" solar system called DG1 that integrates both concentrated and thermal solar power for a highly efficient energy footprint.


Old King Coal Needs New Energy Team

May 13th, 2011 | by Glenn Meyers

Can the coal industry ever become a partner to the renewable energy industry, searching for the higher good concerning this planet’s energy needs? With enough coal to last for over a century, is there even a need to worry about such matters – at least right now? Will King Coal eventually wither into an old maid bride’s maid


China Grows Wind Capacity to Top World Ranking

April 25th, 2011 | by Glenn Meyers

But today's China has dramatically expanded its wind power capacity to rank as the world’s largest owner of installed wind capacity. If planned construction deadlines are met, China will end 2011 owning 58 gigawatts (GWs) of installed wind capacity, a number that will expand to as much as 150-230 GWs over the coming decade.
