The Energy Department recently released a report called “Revolution… Now,” which details five booming clean energy technologies, plus other promising pieces of clean tech.
Our analysts calculate several different levels of the offshore resource assessment, each of which provides a more refined estimate of energy potential as more filters and assumptions are added.
This year’s Drive Electric celebration spans eight days from Sept. 10-18, with nearly 200 events across the country to familiarize people with the power, convenience, and widespread availability of electric vehicles.
Editor’s note: The U.S. Department of Energy recently commissioned the National Renewable Energy Lab (NREL) to perform an Eastern Renewable Generation Integration Study (ERGIS), and the results are in. This scenario-based study was conducted on four wind and solar photovoltaic (PV) potential futures and predicted the associated operational impacts on the Eastern Interconnection. The Interconnection covers two-thirds
By Paul Dvorak | Editor Windpower Engineering & Development With interest in the wind industry growing nationwide, localities in which the farms are considered would probably like to know their financial impact. You could hire an accountant for a few guesstimates, but the Energy Department’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory might have better answer and sooner
