DOE and 6 Wind Turbine Manufacturers Set Goal to Achieve 20% Wind Energy by 2030

The MOU between DOE and the six major turbine manufacturers demonstrates the shared commitment of the federal government and the private sector to create the roadmap necessary to achieve 20 percent wind energy by 2030, DOE Assistant Secretary Karsner said. “To dramatically reduce greenhouse gas emissions and enhance our energy security, clean power generation at the gigawatt-scale will be necessary to expand the domestic wind manufacturing base and streamline the permitting process.”

Miniature Wind Turbines Demonstrate Wind Behavior

Artist Patrick Marold from Denver, Colorado has created 1,000 polycarbonate poles topped by three aluminum cups. When turned by the wind, each powers a small built-in generator attached to an LED that sends light down into the shaft, thereby, displaying the wind's power. This Windmill Project is featured in an exhibition ("Human=Landscape") hosted by Burlington City Arts in conjunction with the ECHO Lake Aquarium and Science Center and the Energy Project Vermont.

LLNL and Siemens research wind energy efficiency improvements

Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory has signed an agreement with Siemens Energy Inc. to provide high-resolution atmospheric modeling capabilities to improve the efficiency of wind farm sites, turbine design and wind farm operations,

Offshore Wind Energy Farms vs. Shipping Systems

Shipping operators fear the wind turbines, some times more than 600 feet tall, will be a navigation hazard in areas that are already busy. In addition, they say diverting ships around the wind farms may lead to an increase in CO2 emissions and cancel out much of the wind farm’s CO2 savings.

Measuring Wind Speed for Wind Power Generation

Measuring wind speed is a key metric for wind generation efficiency and cogeneration business models.



Laser Sensors Used to measure wind speed and direction to optimally align wind turbines and turbine blades

Catch the Wind Ltd., is a developer and manufacturer of the Vindicator(R) laser wind sensor (LWS) and other sensor products

LA County Sanitation Districts Create Create Variety of Alternative Energies

EPA's Green Power Partnership works with more than 1,100 partner organizations to voluntarily purchase green power to reduce the environmental impacts of conventional electricity use.  Overall, the partners are buying more than 16 billion kWh of green power annually, equivalent to the carbon dioxide emissions from electricity use of more than 1.6 million American homes.

Clean Energy Investment ETFs

It's always a delight to find informative resources for specific solutions.  CleanEdge.com offers two green energy stock index resources.  These company lists could also be used for other purposes -- such as job searches, marketing partners, and products that you would like to buy or carry in your green business.

Biorenewables Are Growing the Bioeconomy

Forty six students from across the country and the world, most of them graduate students or post-doctoral researchers, were filing in to hear Steven Fales, an Iowa State professor of agronomy, speak about "Next Generation Biofuels: What are the Challenges?"

Wind Power and Gas Combined for Manufacturing Solution

Procter & Gamble has reached an agreement in principle to connect P&G’s paper products manufacturing plant in Mehoopany, Pennsylvania to a proposed BP wind power facility.

Renewable Energy Solutions for Your Personal and Business Applications

Alternative energy replaces petrochemicals -- oil, gasoline, transportation fluids, as well as coal and natural gas used to create electricity.

Energy Conservation

Energy conservation includes energy efficiency, renewable energy replacement for fossil fuels, behavior changes and technology such as sensors to automatically monitor and control energy waste.

Distributed generation

Distributed energy resources are small-scale power generation technologies ranging from 3 to 10,000 kW so they can be located close to homes or businesses to provide alternative or enhanced utilitiy electric power systems.

Research & Development Grants

Research & Development Grants for energy technologies, distribution, commercialization and conservation are largely funded by government agencies, through research labs and universities with collaborative outreach into high tech businesses

Research & Development

Wind research and development includes a wide variety of energy generation and transmission improvements including Blades, Certification, Components, Computer Modeling, Control Systems, Drivetrains, Dynamometer Testing, Emerging Applications, Manufacturing, Partnerships, Small Wind Turbines, Towers
