On Saturday, the Tampa Bay Times published a lengthy piece that argues the two reactor installation proposed for Levy County, Florida is a more expensive option than a natural gas power plant.
Natural gas is a fuel for electricity generation that serves as a bridge to a Smart Grid that fully integrates renewables and energy storage into the energy portfolio.
With the EV industry reeling from grim news regarding Coda’s bankruptcy announcement and Fisker Automotive’s apparent demise, Tesla Motors is basking in a trifecta of great news stories that emerged from their camp.
RGGI’s new cap not only falls short of creating real price pressures due to its closeness to baseline emissions, its excessive compensatory measures, and its failure to deal with leakage, but also runs the risk of locking in emissio...
President Obama is preparing to decide how much liquified natural gas (LNG) from the the U.S. boom in shale natural gas production it makes sense to export. Economically and geopolitically a lot hangs in the balance.
Munich getting half of its energy from solar panels is quite simply impossible, for the simple reason that the majority of energy consumption is not in the form of electricity.
I wanted to find a means of estimating the cost of a one million mega watt (Mgw) wind generator and compare that to the cost of one million Mgw of nuclear generation capacity.
If the prospect of serious limits on greenhouse gas emissions translates into a real risk of stranded assets for fossil fuel companies, carbon may become the next housing bubble.
David Biello over at Scientific American had a story in 2011 that looked at research establishing a link between methane contamination in well water and nearby hydraulic fracturing of shale rock.
A new pipeline promises new natural gas supplies for New York City. Some tout the economic and environmental benefits that will come from it. Others decry the potential problems it brings.
Breakthrough renewable energy forecasting technologies may be two years away from revolutionizing the efficiency of wind and solar generation on America’s grid.
The European Union is moving ahead with tariffs on imported Chinese solar panels in an effort to protect its own module makers, imposing anti-dumping charges similar to those imposed last year by the U.S.
The data are being requested to shine a light on how oil and gas companies are managing environmental risks and community impacts in their fracking operations.
Where California goes, so does the rest of the country. We don’t have enough shared renewables laws in the US. Passing these bills would set a great example and help spread renewables beyond just California.
Fuel cell "startup" Bloom Energy just raised $130 million more in venture capital, taking total funding to beyond $1.1 billion for this firm and makes it one of the all-time leaders in venture capitalization.
In honor of Mother’s Day, remember our daughters and sons will soon be running this country; we can show them, by working right alongside them, that being a responsible parent means being an engaged citizen.
Shortly after 11 AM on Tuesday, May 8, 2013, the operators at Dominion Resources’ Kewaunee Nuclear Power Station opened the plant’s output breaker, disconnecting the turbine generator from the grid for the last time.
An all-of-the-above approach to energy encompassing oil and gas, along with renewables, carbon sequestration, nuclear power and efficiency is fully consistent with addressing climate change.
Why should we give so much value to oil when we have the proven technology to use other fuels? By giving value to other fuels we would reduce the value of oil, lower prices and even out the playing field in a true open market.
Carbon dioxide concentrations have hit 400 parts per million for the first time in at least three million years, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration announced today. That’s 40 percent more than the CO2 level in the air...Show More Summary
