Confronting Climate Change…and NIMBY

Confronting Climate Change…and NIMBY

This week, as we continue our conversation about powering past NIMBY, the focus turns to deploying third voices and bolstering your credibility by making the conversation about more than profit. Sure, you are in the renewable energy BUSINESS, and you should NEVER try to give the impression that your project is somehow more about the environment than it is about […]

Challenges for Biofuels: Not Just Technical Hurdles To Overcome

Challenges for Biofuels: Not Just Technical Hurdles To Overcome

A combination of rising costs, shrinking supplies, and concerns about global climate change are spurring the development of alternatives to the burning of fossil fuels to meet our transportation energy needs. Scientific studies have shown the most promising of possible alternatives to be liquid fuels derived from cellulosic biomass. These advanced new biofuels have the potential to be clean-burning, carbon-neutral and renewable. Some could also be delivered through existing pipelines and used in today's engines, replacing gasoline on a gallon-for-gallon basis with no loss of performance.
