The Maine Wind Industry Initiative

Wind power development doesn't deal with a single industry. There are steel workers, engineers, precision manufactures, boat builders, construction crews, composite technologies, and marine technologies. The Maine Wind Industry Initiative brings these partners under one roof, so that they can network and solve problems working together.

The Solar Power Paradox: Alternative Energy Can't Run on Oil

As the PV business continues to grow, new backsheet constructions are continually being introduced. But the products we use in our efforts to be more sustainable have a bigger footprint than we think. Currently, there are at least ten commercial manufacturers of traditional PV backsheets, with traditional products in the development stage. Traditional backsheets, the protective covering on solar cells, are produced mainly from polyester and Tedlar films. Polyester is made from petroleum and Tedlar is solvent-cast using DMAC, a highly toxic industrial solvent. Both of these products defeat the purpose of clean, green energy, and as the demand for solar energy increases, so does this issue.

SEIA STATEMENT ON SENATE ENVIRONMENT & PUBLIC WORKS COMMITTEE DRAFT CLIMATE LEGISLATION

Bill presents a good start for accelerating solar energy so that U.S. can do more sooner to cut pollution and address climate challenges.

The first positive energy office structure

The Elithis Tower, designed and constructed as the world's most environmentally sound building, has just been unveiled. Touted as the first positive energy office structure, the tower creates more power than it uses. Designed and constructed at equal cost to a traditional building, the 54,000 square foot structure produces six times fewer greenhouse gas emissions. To achieve this impressive combination, a complete environmental ideology was designed.

OPDE Group to build 17 solar facilities producing 75 MW of power in Piedmont (Italy)

• The project will involve three phases from October 2009 to December 2010. The OPDE Group is expected to create 125 new direct jobs, from a total of 375 that will come from the ambitious solar photovoltaic project.

Making solar heat add up: A new study reveals the potential of solar thermal in Europe

Brussels, 25 September 2009. Since heat accounts for nearly half of the overall energy demand in the European Union, the solar thermal industry will no doubt make a significant contribution to the 20% target of renewable energy set by the new RES Directive. A new Study "Potential of Solar Thermal in Europe" examines the growth that can come from the solar thermal heating and cooling sector.

RENEWABLE SOURCES NOW EXCEED 11% OF U.S. ENERGY AND ELECTRICITY

renewable energy sources provided 11.37% of domestic U.S. energy production in June 2009 - the latest month for which data has been published. And renewable energy sources provided 11.18 percent of net U.S. electrical generation for the first six months of 2009.
