    1. ABB Pumped Hydro Makes a Canary Island 100% Renewably Powered

      ABB Pumped Hydro Makes a Canary Island 100% Renewably Powered
      The project’s goal is to provide inhabitants with all the energy they need through a combination of wind energy, pumped water-storage power and solar-thermal and photovoltaic systems. ABB is helping to lead the project by providing technology to electrify and control the hydro-power plant and integrate energy from renewable sources into the island’s grid.

    2. Opinion: The Alternative Energy Fallacy

      Opinion: The Alternative Energy Fallacy
      The basic premise of alternative energy is that widespread deployments of wind turbines, solar panels and electric vehicles will slash hydrocarbon consumption, reduce CO2 emissions and give us a cleaner, greener and healthier planet. That premise, however, is fatally flawed because our planet cannot produce enough non-ferrous industrial metals to make a meaningful difference and the prices of those metals are even more volatile than the prices of the hydrocarbons that alternative energy hopes to supplant.

    3. FBI orders Mobil Renewable Power Station from Arista Power

      FBI orders Mobil Renewable Power Station from Arista Power
      The MRPS for the FBI includes a patented, ducted WindTamer wind turbine, best in class solar cells, fuel cells, and a state-of-the-art energy storage and power distribution system. The system contains fully compatible AC/DC connectors and grid interconnects, is whisper quiet and produces no heat signature. The system can be transported by commercial vehicles and is designed to replace diesel fuel generators for continuous operations. The FBI will utilize the system to power communications equipment in remote locations.

    4. UK: Wasted wind

      UK: Wasted wind
      Currently, the actual amount of electricity wasted is very small, as the grid turns off coal rather than waste wind. But as we increase the amount of wind power on the grid, the problems will increase. The government's chief scientific adviser on climate change, Professor David MacKay, says: "We will have to put in complimentary amounts of balancing services, which could be inter-connectors [with Europe], pumped storage, demand shifting or mothballed gas power stations," he says.

    5. Nat Gas vs Batteries for grid renewable sources

      Nat Gas vs Batteries for grid renewable sources
      Grid storage via batteries could smooth out the variability of solar and wind’s [intermittencies, but providing 400 megawatts to meet California's projected needs] would be cost prohibitive. The real answer to improve alternative use and reduce greenhouse gases lies [with] natural gas-fired plants … GE just announced a $500M+, 510MW combined-cycle power plant … [with 61%] fuel efficiency, and can ramp up [its] output at over 50MW per minute.

    6. Military Wants Bases to be "island microgrids": Storage + Renewables

      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.

    7. 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.
