  • Renewable Energy News: Around the World with Bioenergy, Hydropower and Geothermal

    Unlike the intermittent wind and solar power, baseload renewables are able to produce power with little fluctuation due to weather. Bioenergy, geothermal and hydropower technologies are able to provide power around the clock and do not depend on the sun shining or the wind blowing. Here's a look at what’s happening in these important renewable energy sectors.

  • Nuclear Power: New Horizon Moves Wylfa Newydd Design Forward
    Horizon Nuclear Power has moved the Wylfa Newydd project design forward with a consolidated facility concept that eliminates the need for some buildings, including some of the off-site structures, and combines operations for radioactive waste storage for the two units.(read more)

  • Renewable Energy News: UK Breaks Solar Record; Generates 24 Percent of Power from Solar

    On Friday, May 26, on what was expected to be one of the hottest days of the year, solar panels in the UK generated a record amount of power, enough to meet almost 25 percent of demand. This is according to data compiled by National Grid Plc and Sheffield University.

    At noon London-time, 8.75 GW of power was being generated by the solar PV, breaking a previous record of 8.49 GW, overtaking nuclear power in the country.  

  • Renewable Energy News: SolarWorld Joins Case Seeking U.S. Duties on Cheap Solar Imports

    SolarWorld AG’s U.S. unit joined a trade case asking the federal government to impose duties on low-cost imports that have fueled a nationwide boom in solar installations.

    The company, which filed a separate trade complaint that led to U.S. tariffs on Chinese panels in 2012, become a co-petitioner Thursday in Suniva Inc.’s case before the U.S. International Trade Commission. Suniva, a bankrupt Georgia manufacturer, initiated the complaint in April, saying it’s impossible to compete with cheap imports, predominately from Asia.

  • Renewable Energy News: Trina IBC Solar Cell Record 'Significant'

    The recent announcement by Trina Solar that it had reached a new solar conversion efficiency record of 24.13 percent in a Changzhou, China laboratory for an interdigitated back contact (IBC) mono-crystalline silicon cell, is a “significant achievement,” according to a U.S. laboratory analyst.

    “The efficiency is significant given the size of the cell at six inches,” says Abasifreke Ebong, a professor in the Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte.

  • Renewable Energy News: A Tiny Island Off Singapore May Hold Keys to Energy's Future

    On a small island off the southern coast of Singapore, a French energy company is experimenting with what it hopes will be the future of renewable power storage.

    Engie SA is helping build a small, self-contained power grid on Semakau Island to demonstrate the usefulness of hydrogen gas in converting intermittent power from solar panels and wind turbines into stored fuel that can generate electricity days or even months later, when the need is higher.

  • Wind Power Monthly: Northland Power developing 1.2GW off Taiwan
    TAIWAN: Canadian electricity producer Northland Power has formed a 60-40 joint venture with Singaporean partner Yushan Energy to develop two offshore wind projects by 2023-2024.
  • Renewable Energy News: Are Solar and Wind Really Killing Coal, Nuclear and Grid Reliability?

    U.S. Secretary of Energy Rick Perry in April requested a study to assess the effect of renewable energy policies on nuclear and coal-fired power plants. Some energy analysts responded with confusion, as the subject has been extensively studied by grid operators and the Department of Energy’s own national labs. Others were more critical, saying the intent of the review is to favor the use of nuclear and coal over renewable sources.

  • Renewable Energy News: Arizona Utility Buys Solar Power at ‘Historically Low Price’

  • Renewable Energy News: Cracking the PPA: Renewable Energy Projects and Energy Storage

    Colocating energy storage with renewable generation resources seems like a natural partnership to reduce the intermittency of renewable generators. Several projects have been built across the country combining storage with wind or solar projects. While the co-location of such facilities can yield many benefits, there are a number of legal and practical issues that need to be considered when deciding to acquire and co-locate storage facilities (particularly battery projects) with existing or new renewable generation.
