"Storage has always been a key component of an electricity system and pumped hydro allows renewable electricity to be stored and used when required, without introducing carbon into the equation." That is what Deion Campbell, the CEO of Tilt Renewables, said. Tilt Renewables is a leading developer, owner and manager of renewable energy generation assets (in) Australia and… Continue reading Because “Storage of renewable energy is the future”, Australia wants to lead the world in the development of storage technology
According to a draft budget proposal "obtained by the Washington Post", the Trump administration will ask Congress "for major budget cuts to the Energy Department’s renewable energy and energy efficiency programs". This is another bad news for the US renewable energy after the last week Trump's tariffs on imported solar panels. The current budget of the… Continue reading Trump administration seeks 72% renewable energy office’s budget cut
New York State is pushing back on oil drilling and pursuing clean offshore wind power energy. The first step is to create 800MW of power generated by offshore wind in 2 years. According to the long-awaited state report, which was released on Monday, an offshore wind farm would result in a $6 billion industry and creates… Continue reading New York State will develop enough offshore wind energy to meet a targeted capacity of 2.4GW by 2030
In an executive order issued last week, the State of Maine Gov. LePage ordered "that no permits related to wind turbines are issued in the areas". According to the executive order, the "noise and vibration caused by wind turbines", " the sight of wind turbines can affect property values", " wildlife will be affected by the… Continue reading Because the State of Maine is pretty, Gov. LePage blocked wind energy
The American Wind Energy Association (AWEA), released yesterday the "U.S. Wind Industry Fourth Quarter 2017 Market Report", with great news from the wind power industry in the United State to the "American economy". "New wind farms drove $11 billion in private investment, with more on the way", closing 2017 strong, delivering 7,017 megawatts (MW) of new wind power capacity… Continue reading Another American success story.

GE Renewable Energy will supply the project with 120… Continue reading New 300-MW wind farm in Texas
Scientists at UT predict that by 2019, the state will get more energy from wind than coal. Wind capacity is expected to increase by nearly 4,000 MW by 2018, meaning wind capacity will soon exceed coal capacity in Texas. Given current capacity factors for the respective technologies, it’s conceivable that energy generation from wind… Continue reading Everything is bigger in Texas, including wind power!
