New Energy Bill: Reducing Our Dependence on Foreign Oil

New Energy Bill: Reducing Our Dependence on Foreign Oil

Growing transportation requirements combined with declining domestic oil production have led to burgeoning oil imports. Rising oil prices are having an adverse impact on the U.S. economy as evident from recent economic data and stock market performance. We need a responsible energy plan which will balance our transportation requirements with the necessity to reduce our dependence on foreign oil.
U.S. Used Less Energy in 2008 But More Renewable Energy

U.S. Used Less Energy in 2008 But More Renewable Energy

Americans used more solar, nuclear, biomass and wind energy in 2008 than they did in 2007, according to the most recent energy flow charts released by the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. The nation used less coal and petroleum during the same time frame and only slightly increased its natural gas consumption. Geothermal energy use remained the same.
U.S. Energy Use Declines, Renewables Increase

U.S. Energy Use Declines, Renewables Increase

A new government study shows that Americans are using less energy overall and making more use of renewable energy resources.
Have COVID-19 global lockdowns cleared the way for a carbon-free future?

Have COVID-19 global lockdowns cleared the way for a carbon-free future?

The immediate effect of global lockdowns has given the world a rare glimpse into a carbon-free future. Cleaner skies have been seen for the first time, from Los Angeles to New Delhi, and demonstrate the environmental improvements of reduced carbon emissions on a global scale. But what these temporarily cleaner skies have also exposed is the harmful reality of air […]
What Business Are Electric Utilities In?

What Business Are Electric Utilities In?

Many businesses can now perform the traditional functions of an electric utility — provide affordable, reliable, resilient power to homes and businesses. The barriers to entry in the business have fallen. For instance, a home with rooftop solar panels, batteries, and gas-based generators may choose to be grid-independent. Even when homes decide to remain grid-tied, utilities face falling demand and revenue, and the possibility of future grid-defection. Further, competing electricity solutions can emerge quickly, and not one-home-at-a-time — microgrids can offer community, village, or campus-level solutions.

The United States consumed a record amount of renewable energy in 2020

Renewable energy was the only source of U.S. energy consumption that increased in 2020 from 2019; fossil fuel and nuclear consumption declined
U.S. Releases Solar Photovoltaic Market Stats

U.S. Releases Solar Photovoltaic Market Stats

The U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) released a report this month covering U.S. solar photovoltaic (PV) and solar thermal market activity in 2003. While the U.S. solar thermal market was ho-hum last year, the PV cell and module business was anything but dull. The second-largest manufacturer of PV cells and modules, AstroPower, went bankrupt. Other major manufacturers significantly changed their relative outputs of cells and modules, as well as entering and leaving major end-use markets. The result was the first decline in total peak kW production of PV cells and modules since EIA resumed collecting such data in 1986. Here, in the first of a two-part series, SolarAccess.com has compiled some key information from the report summarizing U.S. solar PV market activities in 2003. The second part of this installment, delving into solar thermal activities for 2003, can be accessed at this link
Inequalities must be addressed to provide universal access to sustainable energy

Inequalities must be addressed to provide universal access to sustainable energy

Tracking SDG7: The Energy Progress Report says that during the past decade, a greater share of the global population gained access to electricity than ever before, but the number of people without electricity in Sub-Saharan Africa increased. Unless efforts are scaled up significantly in countries with the largest deficits, the world will still fall short of ensuring universal access to […]
