Edd Gent for Scientific American: The need for specially designed engines to run biodiesel is holding back the technology
California leads the United States in capacity of several categories: hydroelectric pumped storage, geothermal, landfill gas, and batteries. Florida leads the country in capacity of municipal solid waste and other waste biomass generators.
Biofuels International: Dubois argued that biofuels should be seen as a tool for responsible investment in agriculture and rural development.
The Renewable Energy Engineering Program began in 2015 due to the potential demand that is expected for these types of professionals and the opportunity for development (a growing trend) provided by Baja California, the California region in general (USA) and Baja California Sur (Mexico).
What we are seeing is that the Mexican government and its regulatory and policymaking bodies are listening to the stakeholders in Mexico's renewable energy space and they have been tweaking and updating the reforms accordingly.
Recently Pakistan Engineering Council has passed resolution in its AGM for approval of Renewable Energy category in PEC license and it is a great contribution from PEC but Government has to regulate this sector and make active National Accreditation Council Pakistan and PSQCA for imposition of solar standards and certifications in Pakistan to bring quality in this sector.
Large commercial and industrial companies are uniquely positioned to invest in renewable energy projects, and tend to have the most to gain from them.
This Bio-Solar home of Soontorn Booyantikam can harvest 20 to 25 gallons of water per day, the air conditioning produces 8 gallons of condensation. Rain and dew also do not go to waste and gets collected from the roof, the amount varies from season to season.
Ben Coxworth for New Atlas: Scientists have developed a simpler new process for converting coffee grounds to biofuel.
Mark Harrington for Newsday: Block Island on Monday will formally throw the switch on a first-time connection to the New England energy grid through a new cable to the mainland, and begin receiving power from the country's first five offshore wind turbines.
The thing to realize is that alternative energy is no longer a novelty. It is being driven these days, not so much by political agendas and idealism, but by powerful market forces.
Giuliano Balestrieri, Business Insider Italia: The same heat that burns your feet when you walk on sand could be the key to making clean energy and endless electricity. An Italian firm, Magaldi Group, is doing so by using sand as a storage system to eventually concentrate solar energy.
A Certificate of Occupancy on a building constructed of 60 Intermodal Shipping Containers is a huge accomplishment for Paul Wever, president of Chip Energy Inc.
All terrestrial energy sources except nuclear, geothermal and tidal are from current solar insolation or from fossil remains of plant and animal life that relied directly and indirectly upon sunlight, respectively.
The CTS reactor creates a mechanochemical reaction within minutes and breaks down the cellulose to its base components of C5 and C6 sugars and Lignin. The sugars can then be fermented to create biofuels, fine chemicals, or a number of other items including pharmaceuticals, carbon fiber nanotubes, construction products, and nutraceuticals to name a few.

Joyce Solar Actuators are designed to precisely position smaller solar tracking equipment. Their robust and efficient DC motor (24V or 36V) keeps power consumption to a minimum. Travel speeds remain nearly constant regardless of the load. Ideal for rugged environments common to the solar industry, these cost-effective SA actuators have an IP65 protection rating. Self-locking features in the mechanism ensure that the solar actuator will hold position throughout the daily tracking cycle. Specifications: • Double clevis mounting for easy installation • Clutch for overload protection • Adjustable limit switches for flexible travel settings • Reed sensor digital feedback for accurate positioning • Duty cycle is 25% (4 min. running, 12 min. rest) • Lubricated for life
