South Africa’s Eskom has secured a $100 million credit facility from French development finance group Agence Française de Développement for financing a wind power project.
The loan will be used to finance Eskom’s 100-megawatt Sere Wind Project in Vredendal in South
A new report from the Department of Energy’s Pacific Northwest National Laboratory shows that electric vehicles could aid in expanding renewable energy sources like wind in the Pacific Northwest. This region of the United States is increasingly looking at wind power to satisfy their growing energy demands.
Small wind generation with vertical axis turbines, also known as VAWT, is one of the most exciting recent developments in small scale alternative energy generation.
Last week we caught wind that Sauer Energy, which develops VAWT systems, has attracted huge interest
When I meet people and tell them what I do at Xcel Energy (environmental communications manager), they often get excited and volunteer that they have seen the wind farm off state Highway 93, outside of Golden, Colo. And being a know-it-all, I’m quick to correct them that it’s not really a wind farm, but the
Two recent stories illustrate how far wind power can go in terms of efficiency and mechanics.
First, let’s take a look at what Japanese researchers have come up with.
According to Mother Nature Network, scientists at Kyushu University in Japan have come up with an
During the first half of 2011, Germany for the first time generated more than 20 percent of its electricity from renewable sources, a new report says.
While the country’s total electricity demand remained stable during the first six months of 2011, the share generated by renewable sources increased from
The offshore wind energy industry is set for a boom over the next ten to twenty years. The UK’s round 3 of offshore development saw the crown estate award licenses to various wind power firms to develop wind farms at several sites around the UK; with the ambitious target of achieving 32GW of power (roughly a quarter of UK
Charging an electric vehicle with solar or wind power is a renewable energy dream come true. And this is the promise that comes attached with the Sanya Skypump.
The device, a collaboration between Urban Green Energy (UGE) and GE Energy Industrial Solutions, was presented by Inhabitat. In short, it is a solar/wind mix that takes the guilt out of the electric car experience. It combines the GE WattStation
