Ribbon cutting ceremony heralds the next big step in the effort to put the US on the offshore wind map.
Construction of the first U.S. offshore wind farm is underway off the coast of Rhode Island, and earlier this month saw the unveiling of the transfer vessel that’s going to usher it to completion. Built in partnership with Deepwater Wind, Atlantic Wind Transfers and Blount Boats, the vessel is the first of its kind ever to be constructed in the U.S.. Early sea trials are scheduled for April of 2016, and the vessel is expected to be put into opera...

"Energy prices from solar energy like our Blythe project have made it easier to enter into long term off-take agreements with companies like Cisco," said Tom Doyle, President of NRG Renew
With its excellent renewable policy, California leads the nation in solar. Over the years both the Renewable Portfolio Standard and the California Solar Initiative drove utility scale and residential solar deployment. But without the same drivers pushing commercial and industrial buildings to go solar, California’s offices, warehouses, hospitals, farms, factories, universities, hotels and restaurants have lagged behind.Now that appears to be turn...

In the maturing European wind energy market, long-term maintenance choices are a crucial consideration.
We all know that the wind turbine market in Europe is an oligopoly. Power resides in the hands of very few players — and, in the offshore space, just five manufacturers (OEMs) account for 100 percent of the turbines that were sold in 2014.Of course, up until now, this hasn’t been much of an issue at all. Competition, fuelled by potential idle production capacities and stock market expectations, has created healthy price pressure. Indeed, turbine ...

“Block Island is very important to jump start the offshore wind industry in the U.S.,” said Jeff Grybowski, Deepwater’s chief executive officer.
A few miles off the coast of Block Island, a new U.S. industry is emerging from the Atlantic Ocean.That’s where Deepwater Wind LLC is installing a massive steel frame, more than 1,500 tons, that sits on the seabed and juts about 70 feet from the water south of Rhode Island. By the end of next year there will be five of these platforms, each supporting a huge turbine, the first offshore wind farm in U.S. waters.It’s been a long time coming. Offsho...

As the lithium-ion battery market heats up, developers are seeing exciting opportunities to extract sought-after lithium from spent geothermal brine.
In today's fast-paced tech environment, no one can make a splash quite like Elon Musk. So when he decided to enter the energy storage game in 2014, he did it with gusto. Musk is now in the process of building what he coined a "gigafactory," which is a lithium-ion battery manufacturing plant in Nevada. Of course, the plant is being built at such an efficient pace that its ahead of schedule and is now set to start production in 2016.Since the gigaf...

More and more municipalities, cities, states and even entire countries are setting 100 percent renewable energy targets but policy support is critical for success.
The exclusive use of energy from renewable resources in at least one sector has now become a feasible goal for 8 countries. Diane Moss, Founding Director of Renewables 100 Policy Institute, discussed this remarkable development at one of the conference sessions at Intersolar North America 2015.Denmark, Scotland, and Aruba are among the nations with 100 percent renewable energy targets.  Besides the 8 nations, the Institute has so far mapped 55 ci...

In an effort to increase support for the Paris climate talks in December, Obama is rounding up corporate renewable energy commitments.
Executives from 13 major U.S. corporations are announcing at least $140 billion in new investments to decrease their carbon footprints as part of a White House initiative to recruit private commitments ahead of a United Nations climate-change summit later this year in Paris.Companies including Apple Inc., Berkshire Hathaway Energy Co., and Goldman Sachs Group Inc. will join Secretary of State John Kerry and top administration officials at the Whi...

Boosting solar and wind power in the US high on Clinton’s agenda.
Hillary Clinton on Sunday set two "bold national goals" to combat climate change, promising that if she's elected president, she would set the United States on a path toward producing enough clean renewable to power every home in America within a decade.She would also initiate a process that would bring the total number of solar panels installed nationwide to more than half a billion before the end of her first term, her campaign said in a fact s...

Distributed renewable energy can now be bundled and sold into the wholesale energy market in California, paving the way for business model alternatives to net-metering. http://ow.ly/PUe0E
If you live in California, there’s a chance that a neighbor with rooftop solar panels will help keep your lights on soon.In a first, the state’s grid operator has approved rules allowing companies to buy electricity from numerous homes and commercial power systems, and then bundle it up to meet a threshold needed to sell energy on the wholesale market.Companies including utilities will be able to consolidate the output of rooftop solar systems, b...

Monitoring and mitigation of noise is important in order to adhere to environmental regulations that are designed to keep marine wildlife safe
Marine mammal monitoring and underwater noise mitigation is an integral part of the development of offshore wind farms, which, along with many other developments, generate underwater noise that can negatively impact marine mammals. For instance, servicing vessels used during construction and operation can generate continuous noise at low frequencies, which overlap with the communication signals of many marine mammals, such as baleen whales. In fa...
