Ohio ranks 6th nationwide in total wind energy

As sustained wind energy continues to be a factor in Lake and Cuyahoga counties with turbines in Euclid and Wickliffe, the entire state of Ohio is reflecting wind-based power’s rapid and sustained growth.

The U.S. Department of Energy in Washington, D.C., recently released three wind market reports demonstrating continued growth in wind energy nationwide. According to a department news release, America’s wind industry added more than 8,200 megawatts of capacity last year, representing 27 percent of all energy capacity additions in 2016.

What Is Wave Energy?

Wave Energy

Wave energy is as source of power that comes from the endless march of the waves as they roll into the shore then back out again. Humans harness this power along the coastal regions of the United States, Canada, Scotland, and Australia. Energy that comes from the waves in the ocean sounds like a boundless, harmless supply. But is it without its drawbacks? Lets take a look.

Solar energy popularity

FLORENCE -- The questions Daniel Tait answers about solar energy have changed in the past two years.

Tait is no longer explaining the basic "how it works." More often now he is talking to would-be consumers about how they can use solar energy.

Tait is chief executive officer of Energy Alabama, a nonprofit advocacy group for sustainable energy. He said the shift in consumer questions indicates solar energy has a stronger foothold than it did two years ago.

The technology is familiar, and people are buying in, he said.

Scotland’s record in renewable energy

Wind power output in Scotland has helped set a new record for the first half of the year, according to an independent conservation group.

Analysis by WWF Scotland of data provided by WeatherEnergy found wind turbines provided around 1,039,001MWh of electricity to the National Grid during June.

Renewable energy figures show the power generated last month was enough to supply the electrical needs equivalent to 118 per cent of Scottish households or nearly three million homes.

Ambitious clean energy target will mean lower electricity prices, modelling says

The more ambitious a clean energy target is, the lower Australian wholesale electricity prices will be, according to new modelling by energy analysis firm RepuTex.

The Finkel review, released last month recommended the government introduce a clean energy target (CET), which it found would cut emissions from the national electricity market and put downward pressure on both wholesale and retail prices.

China’s Renewable Energy Success Embarrasses Trump’s ‘Energy Dominance’ Plan

 

China’s Qinghai province is larger than Texas — that is to say, bigger than Kenya, Sweden, France, Morocco, Japan, Poland or the Philippines. And with almost six million people, it has a larger population than 30 states — more than Colorado, Minnesota, South Carolina, Connecticut or Arkansas.

So it is a big deal that for a week in June, Qinghai ran its electric grid entirely on water, wind and sun. One hundred percent renewable — no coal, oil or gas.

Is 100% Renewable Energy Feasible?

We need all the tools in the low-carbon toolbox to get to net zero greenhouse gas emissions, top energy researchers say.

Is a goal of shifting the entire U.S. electric grid to 100 percent renewable energy by the 2050s realistic, or is aiming to decarbonizing 80 percent of it a more feasible target?

Australian panel calls for clean energy target

 

A panel led by Australia’s chief scientist has called for the government to set a clean energy target to reduce emissions from electric power plants that would help the country meet its commitments under the Paris climate agreement. Though any goal is seen as a welcome step toward resolving the nation's long-standing emissions policy paralysis, many worry the panel has set the bar too low.
