The Future of Renewable Energy

We’ve only got one planet, so it’s important that we look after it, right? Yet, while it’s natural to be concerned about the impact of climate change there is also hope in the quest to build a cleaner world.

Innovations in the field of renewable energy are paving the way for a brighter future as we wean ourselves off a reliance on fossil fuels. If the pace continues – and politicians support the growth of green energy – then some experts even think the US could produce 80 per cent of its own electricity through renewables by 2050.


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.


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.
