      Military Wants Bases to be "island microgrids": Storage + Renewables
      Energy officers at military bases are working to turn their facilities into "island microgrids"--entities that can generate and store their own electricity, independent of the surrounding commercial grid. … in the event of a blackout, it could continue to function on electricity generated on-site--largely from renewable sources. These include utility-scale solar arrays, backed up with advance-battery solar-power storage units and diesel generators … Energy experts say that the military's approach could also offer a new model for towns and cities, protecting them from regional-grid blackouts--and boosting local renewable-energy production.

    2. Nokia-Siemens base station for mobile (cell) service

      Nokia-Siemens base station for mobile (cell) service
      Nokia Siemens Network (NSN) has set up a base station for German mobile service provider E-Plus that is powered by renewable energy. The transmission plant relies on a combination of solar and wind power, supported by fuel cell and deep-cycle battery technology. It is the first base station to operate without using Germany’s grid electricity.

    3. Google-backed $5B underwater power line for offshore wind farms clears hurdle

      Google-backed $5B underwater power line for offshore wind farms clears hurdle
      The project, which consists of two parallel transmission lines stretching from northern New Jersey to southern Virginia, could transport up to 6,000 megawatts of electricity that would provide power to 1.9 million households. The transmission lines would each extend 250 miles along the mid-Atlantic coast. The electricity carried by the lines would connect with the main electric grid at onshore sites in New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, and Virginia.

    4. IRENA Maps Out Path to Double the Global Share of Renewable Energy

      IRENA Maps Out Path to Double the Global Share of Renewable Energy

      A new report from the International Renewable Energy Agency suggests the global renewable energy share can reach and perhaps even exceed 30 per cent by 2030 at no extra cost. The rest of the power system's resources have traditionally been adjusted around wind to support a reliable and efficient system. The research that led to this report challenges that concept.
