Study: U.S. could run entirely on renewable energy by 2050

A new study has mapped out a potential plan for the United States to completely transition to clean, renewable energy by 2050. According to the research study leader Mark Z. Jacobson, a professor of civil and environmental engineering at Stanford, the process would demand significant upfront costs, but over time would be roughly equal to the costs of maintaining the fossil fuel infrastructure currently in place. “When you account for the health and climate costs – as well as the rising price of fossil fuels – wind, water and solar are half the cost of conventional systems,” Jacobson said. “A conversion of this scale would also create jobs, stabilize fuel prices, reduce pollution-related health problems and eliminate emissions from the United States. There is very little downside to a conversion, at least based on this science.” Among the positives of switching to clean energy: reducing air pollution in the U.S. that is responsible for approximately 63,000 Americans each year, and eliminating greenhouse gases produced by fossil fuel that would cost the world approximately $3.3 trillion per year by 2050, per a phys.org report.

Ballard To Operate and Support Zero-Emission Bus Fleet in London, UK for Additional 5 Years

Ballard Power Systems today announced that it has signed an agreement with Transport for London (TfL) to extend the operation of eight (8) zero-emission hydrogen fuel cell buses in London, U.K. for five (5) more years. TfL first began operation of the first five zero-emission fuel cell buses in 2010 as part of its publicly stated goal to reduce CO2 emissions 60% from the 1990 level, by 2025. Three additional zero-emission hydrogen fuel cell buses joined the fleet in 2013. All eight buses are powered by Ballard's FCvelocity® fuel cell module.

World Congress and Exhibition on Wind Energy

OMICS International cordially invites all the participants from all over the globe to attend the "World Congress and Exhibition on Wind Energy" at Berlin, Germany during June 16 - 18, 2016 with the theme of "Future Wind Energy Technologies". Wind energy is extracted from air flow using wind turbines to produce electrical power. Wind energy as an alternative to fossil fuels, is plentiful, renewable, widely distributed, clean, produces no greenhouse gas emissions during operation and uses little land. The effects on the environment are generally less problematic than those from other power sources. Wind Energy-2016 is all about Planning, Operating, Grid integration, Aero dynamic noise cancellation, Urban wind Energy promotion, and future prospects of wind energy. Wind Energy - 2016 will also include advancing international knowledge transfer in Ice monitoring and early protections, challenges and case studies of wind energy.

RBI Solar - Dahlia Has You Covered

RBI Solar - Dahlia Has You Covered

What if you could maximize the Ground Coverage Ratio (GCR) on your next project and not have to worry about the complicated variables that come with a tracker system? With a low tilt and clearance design, Dahlia® has the highest GCR of any fixed-tilt system in the marketplace. The system is available in three tilt options (7.5, 10 and 12.5 degrees) and designed to accommodate any sized PV module. The lightweight system is engineered with fewer components, several of which are shipped to job sites pre-assembled. This design feature reduces freight costs and rapidly trims the amount of on-site installation time required to complete construction. Maximizing PV coverage on a site can lead to an increase of production, which creates greater financial return for project owners. Over 100 MW of Dahlia® projects have been deployed across the United States, in regions of variable snow and wind loads. How much can Dahlia® cover and save you on your next project?
