Last year, the U.S. electric power sector produced 4,090 million megawatthours (MWh) of electric power. In 2022, generation from renewable sources-wind, solar, hydro, biomass, and geothermal-surpassed coal-fired generation in the electric power sector for the first time.
Physicist Anders Carlsson, at Washington University in St. Louis, and Sid Redner of the Santa Fe Institute have created a new mathematical model to describe the most reliable, efficient and cost-effective way to harness solar power.
INTERSOLAR EUROPE: SOLAR HYBRID POWER PLANTS HELP TO ENSURE STABLE POWER GENERATION USING RENEWABLE ENERGY
The development of solar hybrid power plants is ramping up. Combining photovoltaics or wind power - or even both technologies - with large-scale storage systems is gaining in importance as a way of ensuring stable power generation from complementary sources.
We've entered into a time of great change in the energy sector, which means we're finally seeing large-scale plans being enacted on the national level to switch to renewable sources.
The peak, which occurred briefly at 3:39 p.m., broke the previous record of 96.4 percent set on March 27, 2022. The new milestone comes as the ISO integrates growing amounts of renewable energy onto the grid in support of the state's clean energy goals.
Record years for several regions and offshore wind reflect strong market growth, but installations must still quadruple by the end of the decade to meet a net zero pathway.
There's a growing interest in green energy and associated technologies. Individuals, companies and government leaders are starting to realize that investing in renewables makes sense currently and in the future. However, supply chain challenges could stifle adoption rates.
Corporations purchased a record 23.7GW of clean power through long-term agreements, propelled by growth in new markets. The increase came despite a year devastated by the Covid-19 pandemic, a global recession and uncertainty about U.S. energy policy.
The world invested unprecedented amounts in low-carbon assets last year, from renewables to cleaner transport, energy storage to electric heat
In two-thirds of the world, renewable sources of power are more affordable than carbon-based electricity. This shift represents a substantial victory for green energy, as it may offer the push the industry needs to become the new norm. Here's how this monumental shift happened.
Renewable power is right at our fingertips. With the help of new technology, water bodies like oceans, lakes and rivers can provide a substantial amount of clean electricity.
Energy Transition: Total Is Investing More Than €500 Million to Convert Its Grandpuits Refinery Into a Zero-crude Platform for Biofuels and Bioplastics
Of the 400 jobs at the Grandpuits platform and its associated Gargenville (Yvelines) depot today, 250 will be maintained after the conversion. Furthermore, 15 additional jobs will be created on the Grandpuits site in a packaging unit connected to the bioplastics unit.
The most stubborn barrier is the cost of installation. Renewables are designed for simplicity, meaning solar panels and wind turbines are relatively easy and inexpensive to maintain, the initial price of the equipment to power companies and homeowners is not insurmountable.
The 2019 photovoltaic energy sector saw unprecedented growth, so much it accounted for nearly 40% of new capacity across all electric power production markets that year. 2019 installations were up 15% from the previous year.
The infrastructure we build in response to climate change, the #1 environmental issue of our time, should not come at the cost of having to flatten hills, fill in valleys, and raze natural structures occupying parts of a project site.
