RE Insider In the panoply of policy mechanisms designed to stimulate renewable energy development, a relative newcomer – the Renewable Portfolio Standard (RPS) – is emerging as the most important.
Crafting National Standards

Crafting National Standards

Renewable energy is making a gradual presence in this country. But the key question facing U.S. lawmakers is whether to mandate broad portfolio standards or whether to continue giving the states the authority to determine such measures.
Cline Cellars Throws the Switch to Solar Power

Cline Cellars Throws the Switch to Solar Power

Even as the California sun rises lower on the horizon and sets earlier in the day, the solar-powered vineyard trend continues. This week a 411 kW solar array for the Cline Cellars' winery operations reached substantial completion.
Exploring Europe’s approach to offshore wind and green hydrogen

Exploring Europe’s approach to offshore wind and green hydrogen

Interest in using offshore wind for green hydrogen production across Europe is driven by large offshore wind capacity targets, declining offshore wind costs, favorable policies, carbon prices, and a focus on economy-wide decarbonization. Pilot projects are underway, yet significant obstacles remain to wide-scale implementation.
Crafting a Photovoltaic Action Plan in the Bay State

Crafting a Photovoltaic Action Plan in the Bay State

For those of us who have been involved in renewable energy for many years, it is truly exciting to see the great strides that the solar photovoltaic industry is taking in powering up a bright future. With nearly $5 billion in annual sales and the prospect of a $15-20 billion industry in the not too distant future, hundreds of MWs are not only being installed on a yearly basis but people around the globe are embracing this technology as a pace-setter for renewable energy generally.
Mars Solar Photovoltaics Offer Earthly Hope

Mars Solar Photovoltaics Offer Earthly Hope

"Spirit," the first of two NASA Mars exploratory rovers, that landed on January 4, has now taken its first steps on the Red Planet. From beaming back high-resolution pictures of the craft's surroundings, to doing the complex work of a geologist in hopes of uncovering signs of life, solar photovoltaic (PV) power is essential to the Mars rover's functions.
Solar Cells Keep Craft Afloat

Solar Cells Keep Craft Afloat

October 25, 2002 [SolarAccess.com] A solar-powered uninhabited aerial vehicle successfully completed a NASA remote-sensing applications demonstration. The Pathfinder-Plus airplane loitered more than four hours over Hawaii’s largest coffee plantation on the island of Kauai, taking digital images to make a “clear-sky” mosaic.
