  • Hydro energy: techno-economic and social aspects within new climate regime

    Small hydro systems can provide electricity for: central-grid, isolated-grids, and/or remote power supplies. Small hydraulic power also provides an extra contribution to national electrical production in the case of consumption peaks. Although hydro is currently the second most used renewable energy source in the world, still there is a significant unexploited potential. The clean development ...

  • EC support for UK power link raises Ireland’s offshore export potential

    The European Commission (EC) announced November 18 it had given priority status to ISLES, a cluster of Irish Sea grid projects which would transmit power from proposed Irish offshore wind farms to the UK grid. There are currently five Irish offshore windfarm projects for a total 2.6 GW of capacity. The inclusion of ISLES in the EC’s list of “projects of common interest” allows ...

  • Monroe Community College Solar Installation Case Study

    Project Overview: At the end of the fall semester MCCC renewable energy students installed a 2.1 kW solar array in joint with Patriot Solar Group. The student project consists of eight 260 watt SolarWorld panels; each panel has an Enphase M-215 micro-inverter that converts the DC voltage generated by the panels into 240 volts AC which is then fed into to the electrical system of the CTC building ...

  • Brazil transmission: what impact on O&M?

    Brazilian wind developers may increasingly have to factor transmission links into their operations and maintenance (O&M) plans if grid connection delays persist in the market. Bloomberg earlier this year reported that firms such as CPFL Energia, Brazil’s largest private sector utility, with more than 1.3GW of wind farms in operation or under construction, were stepping forward to bid ...

  • Canada’s Other Energy Boom – Energy infrastructure is on the move.

    When it comes to energy infrastructure, Canada is on the move. Of course, that may seem like nothing new, given Canada’s lengthy energy history, particularly in the oil and gas industries. In this latest chapter, however, electricity is playing a major role. A confluence of factors have helped spur the need for more generation, which in turn is driving still another form of energy ...

  • Nation Building

    Will Canada bond together as one happy family to build an east-west transmission grid to carry energy to one and all? Is it even a good idea? Just over 120 years ago this country was bounded together by Sir John A. MacDonald’s national dream of a transcontinental railway. Now some politicians are promoting another national dream – the construction of an east-west transmission grid that would meet ...

  • ‘Energy democracy’ becomes more real

    Will new technologies democratize energy much the way the Internet did information? Industry movement seems to point in that direction with the rise of the smart grid, time-of-day pricing, distributed solar, and the electric vehicle. Together these technologies offer a vision of a less centralized energy system, one where communities and households ‘vote in’ or shape the electric grid ...

  • Climate change drives wind turbines in China: case study of market based wind power development
