Cellulosic Biofuel: The Importance of Managing Biomass Supply Chain

Cellulosic Biofuel: The Importance of Managing Biomass Supply Chain

Massive availability of agricultural waste, left unutilized in the field, and its potential to be converted to environmentally friendly biofuel has led to an increasing attention towards the advancement of cellulosic biofuel.
A Preview of the 110th Congress

A Preview of the 110th Congress

The 110th Congress is in session and Democrats are vowing to pursue an aggressive domestic agenda, including providing more funds for renewable energy by repealing some tax breaks for oil and gas companies. The Democrats talk a big game about renewables, but how much will they really deliver in the next two years? Scott Sklar joins us from Washington, D.C. to tell us what we may expect for legislation benefiting renewable energy.
A Simpler, Cheaper Biodiesel Production Process

A Simpler, Cheaper Biodiesel Production Process

A scientist for the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Agricultural Research Service (ARS) may have found a new way to remove a costly component of biodiesel production.
Indigenous First Nations in Saskatchewan to use woody biomass for power

Indigenous First Nations in Saskatchewan to use woody biomass for power

Turboden said it finalized a contract to provide the Meadow Lake Tribal Council (MLTC), representing nine Indigenous First Nations in Saskatchewan, Canada, with an 8,000 kW Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) power generation system that uses sawmill residual woody biomass as fuel. The MLTC Bioenergy Centre will be located near Meadow Lake, Saskatchewan and is receiving funding from the Government of […]
U.S. hydropower generation to decline 14% in 2021 amid drought, EIA reports

U.S. hydropower generation to decline 14% in 2021 amid drought, EIA reports

In its latest Short-Term Energy Outlook (STEO), the U.S. Energy Information Administration forecasts that electricity generation from U.S. hydropower plants will be 14% lower in 2021 than it was in 2020. This is a result of “extreme and exceptional” drought conditions that have been affecting much of the western U.S., especially California and states in the Pacific Northwest, which are […]
PV’s Rapid Expansion: An Opportunity for Advanced Vacuum/Abatement Tech

PV’s Rapid Expansion: An Opportunity for Advanced Vacuum/Abatement Tech

As PV fabrication technologies mature, more and more manufacturers are moving to advanced solutions such as dry vacuum pumps and combustion-based abatement systems because they satisfy the industry's fundamental imperative to achieve cost parity with conventional energy sources, while minimizing its own adverse environmental effects. The move to these technologies is well advanced in more mature segments such as Europe and North America, but most significantly, it is increasingly apparent in the high growth segments in Asia.
First Month of Waste to Energy in Central Vermont

First Month of Waste to Energy in Central Vermont

Vermont is one of a few states known for its cow population, and Central Vermont Public Service (CVPS) is taking advantage of the smellier cow aspects for its power needs. Customers in the area will see the first charges for the CVPS Cow Power program on their October statements. The charges are a way for Vermonters to support renewable energy and Vermont dairy farms through a waste to energy project.

Southwestern US Prepares for Geothermal Energy

Government preparations for geothermal land leasing and for project environmental studies are progressing in California, thanks to coordinated efforts by a host of federal, state and local authorities.
Navigating the Winding Road of Geothermal Project Financing, Part II

Navigating the Winding Road of Geothermal Project Financing, Part II

In Part I, we discussed proven financing strategies for the drilling and construction phases of geothermal energy projects. The next stage of financing a geothermal project is the “permanent financing” phase, which is generally attempted once the project has achieved Commercial Operations (COD).
