Benefits of mesoscale modeling for offshore wind  projects

Benefits of mesoscale modeling for offshore wind projects

The lack of complex terrain in the offshore environment may intuitively steer project developers away from mesoscale modeling to assess the project wind energy resource. However, there are compelling technical reasons indicating that this is not the right course of action.
Renewable Energy Developers Ask If Not Here, Where?

Renewable Energy Developers Ask If Not Here, Where?

While millions of families became lost in the visual effects of the blockbuster movie Avatar, to me it also offers an ironic similarity to the quest for renewable energy here in the United States. In the movie, humanity is seeking to harvest a highly precious mineral on a far-off moon to solve their energy crisis back on earth. They do so despite increasing resistance from the native species of humanoids. The conflict is made worse when the humans grossly underestimate the native's ability to mobilize and fight, with inferior weapons and resources.
US Wind Potential Higher Than Previously Estimated

US Wind Potential Higher Than Previously Estimated

New wind potential estimates for the lower 48 states based on windNavigator, AWS Truewind's high-resolution wind resource dataset have been released. The estimates were produced in collaboration with the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) and they mark the first comprehensive state-level assessment of the onshore wind resource potential since 1993.

There's a story about an elderly gentleman who asks his gardener to plant a particular type of tree.
Can CSP Settle in India?

Can CSP Settle in India?

India, possessing great potential and more than enough suitable land with sufficient solar resources, is well-placed to allow CSP to make a very major contribution to its national energy supply. A new IT Power report looks into the encouraging factors and the barriers for deployment.
New Data Proves Colorado’s Wind Potential

New Data Proves Colorado’s Wind Potential

The Colorado Governor's Office of Energy Management and Conservation (OEMC), the U.S. Department of Energy's Wind Powering America Program, and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory recently published a new wind resource map for the state of Colorado. The map indicates that Colorado, which is ranked 11th in the nation for its wind energy potential, has significant wind resource potential suitable for utility-scale production.

US DOI Fast-Tracking Initiatives for Solar Energy on Federal Lands

Under initiatives announced by Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar and U.S. Senator Harry Reid (D-NV), federal agencies will work with western leaders to designate tracts of U.S. public lands in the West as prime zones for utility-scale solar energy development, fund environmental studies, open new solar energy permitting offices and speed reviews of industry proposals.
China Seeks to Develop Biofuels Industry Despite Production Difficulties

China Seeks to Develop Biofuels Industry Despite Production Difficulties

China seeks to promote the development of its biofuels industry through a series of supportive measures despite mass production difficulties. A spokesperson for the National Energy Bureau said that the Chinese government has set a goal of utilizing five million tons of ethanol fuel during the "12th Five-Year" period spanning 2011 to 2015, nearly double that set for the prior period (2006-2010).
