Studying Net Evaporation from the Eastmain-1 Reservoir

Studying Net Evaporation from the Eastmain-1 Reservoir

A first-of-its-kind study of net evaporation at a hydroelectric facility reveals that the project has very little effect on the loss of water to the atmosphere as compared with pre-impoundment conditions.
Photovoltaics in the UK

Photovoltaics in the UK

It is perhaps because of its reputation as a country with a rain-soaked and overcast climate that solar photovoltaic (PV) has so far made only a minor impact on the UK's renewables sector. This is particularly evident when compared with Europe's market leaders Spain and Germany, and new growth in Italy.

Court approves work to resume at Brazil’s Teles Pires Just a week after work to build the 1.8 GW Teles Pires project on the Teles Pires River in Brazil was halted, Brazil’s Supremo Tribunal Federal reversed that decision. In late September, judge Ricardo Lewandowski ruled that Companhia Hidreletrica Teles Pires (CHTP) had not breached the concession rules and that delaying […]
Renewable Heating & Cooling in the UK

Renewable Heating & Cooling in the UK

Space and water heating, and the growing sector of space cooling, are a significant source of energy demand in the UK. Currently, 27% of the UK's carbon emissions come from the residential property market, and the bulk of this is from heat demand. Consequently, the application of renewable technologies in this area has the potential to make a significant contribution to UK and EU renewables targets.
Beyond the PTC: What will drive future US wind development?

Beyond the PTC: What will drive future US wind development?

While the Production Tax Credit has played a vital role in stimulating the growth of the US wind market, there are an increasingly large number of factors coming into play. Elisa Wood reports on what could be making the sector tick in the coming years.
Feed-in Tariffs Go Global: Policy in Practice

Feed-in Tariffs Go Global: Policy in Practice

Globally, feed-in tariffs (FITs), also known as 'advanced renewable tariffs' (ARTs) or 'renewable energy payments' (REPs) in North America, have gone from strength to strength. Such schemes pay renewable energy producers a set rate (tariff) for each unit of electricity fed into the grid, and generally oblige power companies to purchase all electricity from eligible producers in their service area over a long period of time -- usually 15 to 20 years.

Beyond Sharing Report – Part 3: Exceptional Community-Owned Renewable Energy Projects

Beyond Sharing Report – Part 3: Exceptional Community-Owned Renewable Energy Projects

Despite the challenging legal and financial barriers facing community renewable energy, a surprising number of projects and project models have succeeded. These projects have brought together hundreds of people into ownership of renewable energy, often saving them money, and keeping more of the money they spend on energy in their own community.

COMPANY NEWS Hitachi and Mitsubishi plan consolidation Tokyo-based engineering groups Hitachi, Mitsubishi Electric, and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries say they plan to initiate concrete discussions that could lead to consolidation of their hydroelectric operations. In a statement, the three companies said they would look to jointly establish an operational hydropower company, including marketing, servicing, engineering, development, and design activities. According to […]
Marine Test & Research Facilities Open up the Deep

Marine Test & Research Facilities Open up the Deep

As any engineer will tell you, developing the engineering concepts for a novel energy production device is an iterative process. For ocean energy, this process is further complicated as any device destined to generate electricity from the marine environment must be sufficiently robust to survive the extremely harsh conditions, all the while maintaining complex operations at sea.
