While large agricultural companies continue to equip their farms with biogas plants, a new model of a biogas unit has been developed to provide the high-level energy efficiency to residential and commercial real estate. New research in 2012 significantly increased the scale of employment of biogas technologies.
Amidst the growing population and the resultant energy demand, India is increasingly looking to diversify its energy resources. Renewable sources of energy are being tapped continuously and another source has recently been added to its vast repertoire, the industrial and urban waste. Considered useless until recently, technology has made it possible to extract energy efficiently [...]
China’s government has ruled that U.S. government support to six American solar and wind power projects violates free trade rules, adding to strains between Beijing and its trading partners over renewable energy.
India’s massive power outage left a full 50% of India’s population without electricity. Globally, that equates to 10%% of the world’s population, a staggering number. Indians are virtually cut off from the world, as computers and cellphones, often their lifelines to business, sit unpowered.
A U.S. Energy Department program designed to promote use of alternative fuels for vehicles gave out about $5 million in grants to individuals with conflicts of interest, the agency’s inspector general said. The Clean Cities program was given $300 million to distribute to companies and local coalitions through the economic stimulus package Congress approved in [...]
The new series of Cat® generator sets offer flexibility, lower operation costs, high efficiency and unprecedented reliability. Featuring electrical outputs ranging from 400 to 4,300 kWe, CG generator sets are designed for maximum efficiency in extended-duty distributed generation and cogeneration (combined heat-and-power) applications.
The installation of 1,300 solar panels on Alcatraz Island in San Francisco Bay has been completed, powering lights and appliances that for 75 years were powered by diesel fuel ferried across the bay.
The U.S. Department of Energy’s Commercial Buildings Program and DOE’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory are working with the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air Conditioning Engineers and the buildings industry to find ways to reduce the energy intensity of large hospitals, schools, and retail buildings by 50%.
A group of seven European partners has been created to construct a solid state hydrogen storage facility that will balance power supply and renewable energy demand and be installed in the Puglia region of Italy.
The project, known as Foundation Windpower-Walmart Red Bluff, is to build and install a 1.0-MW wind turbine at the Walmart Distribution Center located in Red Bluff (Tehama County), California. The tower stands 397 feet tall and should produce 2,300 kilowatt hours of electricity per year.
