  • What stops banks from lending to energy efficiency projects?

    Four years after the US credit market crashed, energy efficiency projects continue to struggle to secure financing. What’s the problem? A slow economy, of course. But when it comes to energy efficiency – and on-site renewable energy – the problem runs deeper. It’s not lack of interest in green energy. To the contrary, says Angela Ferrante, director of alternative energy ...

  • As renewable electricity is added to the grid, are power markets misfiring?

    When increasing megawatt-hours of variable solar and wind energy began coursing through the grid, the initial concern was an operational one—could grid reliability be maintained. But it turns out those megawatt-hours are creating market challenges, as well. What needs to be done to right the markets? Travis Kavulla, vice chairman of the Montana Public Service Commission, and Albert Cheung, ...

  • Renewable fuel and energy production solutions reduce your total cost of ownership – Case Study

    Biomass represents a fastgrowing solution for renewable fuel, which can help reduce the need for foreign oil and provide an environmentally-friendly alternative for energy production. Typical biomass sources include switchgrass, hemp, wheat straw, corn stover, woody materials, and sugarcane tops. It is no wonder why biomass is capturing so much market interest as a replacement for coal in energy ...

  • Oceans of Energy

    Technologies that harness the energy of moving water or temperature differentials in the oceans promise to deliver abundant carbon-free electricity. Long before humans got hooked on fossil fuels, we learned how to harness the power of water to do work. Rivers ran mills that ground flour, sawed logs or spun looms that transformed fibers into textiles. Later generations realized that moving water ...
