New study estimates $1.9 billion (AED 7 billion) in annual savings by 2030 if UAE can achieve 10% renewable energy mix
Discovery in alternative energy production by Virginia Tech researchers may be breakthrough for fueling hydrogen vehicles
The method uses abundantly available corn stover - the stalks, cobs, and husks - to produce the hydrogen.
In just four weeks' time All-Energy 2015, the UK's largest renewable energy exhibition and conference will open in its new home, Glasgow's SECC, with the expectation that up to 7,000 people from home and overseas will visit the exhibition, to make new contacts and source new suppliers, attend the multi-stream conference over the two days (Wednesday 6 - Thursday 7 May), and relish the networking possibilities of its Giant Networking Evening.
In 2014, wind energy saved 2.5 billion gallons of water in California by displacing water consumption at the state's fossil-fired power plants, playing a valuable role in alleviating the state's record drought. Wind energy's annual water savings work out to around 65 gallons per person in the state - or the equivalent of 20 billion bottles of water, according to the American Wind Energy Association (AWEA). According to AWEA, one of wind energy's most overlooked benefits is that it requires virtually no water to produce electricity while almost all other electricity sources evaporate tremendous amounts of water. In California - where the state is combating record drought levels - Gov. Jerry Brown recently signed an executive order to reduce household water consumption by 25%, from about 140 gallons per day per household to 105 gallons. Wind energy's water savings are, therefore, equivalent to what would be saved by nearly one week's worth of the required reductions for a typical household. In 2008, U.S. thermal power plants withdrew 22 trillion to 62 trillion gallons of freshwater from rivers, lakes, streams and aquifers and consumed 1 trillion to 2 trillion gallons. By displacing generation from these conventional power plants, U.S. wind energy currently saves around 35 billion gallons of water per year - the equivalent of 120 gallons per person or 285 billion bottles of water.
As a raft of new biomass power projects are on the anvil, the inaugural Japan Biomass Power Market on 18-21 May, 2015 in Tokyo will be a noteworthy platform to showcase the business opportunities for biomass feedstock suppliers, traders, technology providers and much more.
Vancouver, Canada and Qingdao, China - Ballard Power Systems (NASDAQ: BLDP; TSX: BLD) today announced that the world's first hydrogen fuel cell powered fixed rail electric tram was successfully demonstrated at a ceremonial event held in March at the head office, production and testing facility of CSR Qingdao Sifang Company (CSR Sifang), a Chinese rolling stock manufacturer based in Qingdao, Shandong province.
