Renewables are in the midst of a transition. Emissions reduction guidelines combined with a growing energy demand in emerging economies are pushing the buildout of massive wind farm fleets and solar panel installations worldwide.

Geothermal Deal Could Bridge the Gap for Future Development

Geothermal Deal Could Bridge the Gap for Future Development

The geothermal industry has been struggling with the same barriers to development for years. It's a frustrating situation: while geothermal is a reliable, steady baseload form of renewable energy, its development expenses overshadow its obvious long-term benefits.

Summer’s Over, Now Let’s Get Back to Work

As I write this column, the end of summer is rearing its head. I can't complain though. This summer we got away on two local family trips (neither one farther than 165 miles from our house) – one to the mountainous, high desert region around Bend, Oregon and the other to the majestic coast near Manzanita, Oregon. For both trips, I completely unplugged. No computer, no Internet – just me, my family, and the sounds of laughter, the wind, hawks and heron. And for the first time since my twins were born more than two years ago, I even read a novel cover to cover (a great book btw, The White Tiger by Aravind Adiga).
