Germany Reached Nearly 75% Renewable Power Use On Sunday

En route to its 2050 Energiewende goal of 80% of the nation’s power being supplied by renewables, especially spurred on by the phaseout of nuclear reactors, Germany broke another renewable energy record on Sunday, May 11, 2014. Europe’s biggest clean-energy market reached almost 75% renewable power market share noon on that day. As the Disruptive Renewables chart

Sky Windpower’s High-Altitude Generation Aspirations Aren’t Realistic

Sky Windpower is an airborne wind generation system that is often given glowing reviews in the inadequately critical popular and technical press. In 2008, they were listed in TIME Magazine’s Best Inventions of the Year. In 2011, they were featured on the front cover of Popular Mechanics. They continue to be active in the space,

Wind Farms Have No Sizable Impact On House Prices

New research from the Centre for Economics and Business Research (Cebr) and RenewableUK has found what many had already deciphered, that the presence of wind farms has “no significant effect” on the price of houses within 5 kilometeres of wind turbines. Both based out of the United Kingdom, Cebr and RenewableUK have added further backing

DOE Map Helps Tell The Story Of US Wind Development

Originally Published on the ECOreport. A new Department of Energy map is a bit of an eye opener for those of us getting skeptical about the Golden State’s wind potential. According to an article in the Wallstreet Journal, wind power makes sense in Texas, but not in California, “which isn’t located in the ‘wind belt.’” That may be

Elon Musk On 100% Renewable Energy, Solar Energy Potential, Li-ion Battery Components…

Originally published on Lenz Blog. It is of course correct that eventually all energy will be renewable, and the only question is how fast that happens. Fossil fuel will run out eventually. It is also correct (in my opinion) that we should rather not gamble with the amount of CO2 that can be safely released.
