  • How to optimise the use of bioenergy for Europe’s climate efforts

    Bioenergy can substantially reduce Europe's greenhouse gas emissions and contribute to achieving the EU's renewable energy target, says a new report by the European Environment Agency. Such benefits, however, can only be realised if policy and economic incentives are in place to minimise the potential negative impacts of bioenergy production. The report 'Maximising the environmental benefits of ...

  • Energy Department announces up to $15 million to research biomass-based supplements for traditional fuels

    As part of President Obama’s blueprint for an economy fueled by homegrown and alternative energy sources, the Energy Department announced today up to $15 million available to demonstrate biomass-based oil supplements that can be blended with petroleum, helping the U.S. to  reduce foreign oil use, diversify the nation’s energy portfolio, and create jobs for American workers.  ...

  • Renewables can out-compete fossil fuels - study

    Dramatic falls in cost are making renewable energy increasingly competitive with fossil fuels in countries across the world according to the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA). Solar energy, for example, has already become cheaper than diesel generation in many situations, with clear benefits for communities far away from the electricity grid. Even so, renewable energy deployment ...

  • Keeping EU biofuels policy alive costs society €10bn a year, study shows

    Cash-strapped EU Member States spent €10bn in 2011, a sum as big as the Cyprus bailout, in support of the biofuels industry, a new study by the International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD) reveals. This public support was necessary to sustain the 4.5% market share biofuels had in 2011 ...

  • Opening markets for CSP – the industrial heat application

    Heavy industry can be a viable secondary market today for CSP producers, but questions remain on whether start-up costs are justifiable for industrial users, and how reliable CSP can be for processes that can't pace production by the sun. Solar thermal heat implies steam, and industries that need steam include refining, food processing, wood-working, desalination and chemicals, among others. ...

  • Total Worldwide Distributed Generation Capacity of Microgrids to More than Quintuple by 2018, Forecasts Pike Research

    Like today’s power grid, microgrids include generation facilities, distribution lines, and voltage regulators. However, microgrids offer some unique advantages: their smaller scale translates into fewer line losses, since electricity is generated closer to utility loads, and they lessen demand on the utility transmission infrastructure. Perhaps most importantly, microgrids are an important ...
