Renewables covered 96% of new electrical capacity in opening months of 2022

By WPED Staff The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) and the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA), solar, wind, and other renewable energy sources (i.e., biomass, geothermal, hydropower) provided 96.3% of the domestic electrical generating capacity added in January and February 2022, according to a review by the SUN DAY Campaign. According to the latest issue…

Renewables generated more electricity than nuclear in 2021, a first

By John Engel Follow @EngelsAngle Renewable energy sources generated more electricity than nuclear energy in the U.S. for the first time in 2021, data shows. Renewables — wind, hydropower, solar, biomass, and geothermal — generated 795 million MWh of electricity last year, while nuclear accounted for 778 million MWh, according to data from the Energy…

Rebalancing Earth’s Energy

By Jim Baird Credit: MEER:ReflEction project Dr. Ye Tao of The Rowland Institute at Harvard points out, “Temperature rise, is the biggest and gravest concern that we face. We are overstepping a heat threshold. Thermal stress decimates biodiversity, ruining aquatic, marine, and terrestrial ecosystems alike. Humans may not be around once we transgress that redline….

Bionic wing flaps improve wind energy efficiency

Scientists show a bionic approach combining features of a seagull’s wing with an engineered flow control accessory, known as a Gurney flap, can greatly improve wind turbine performance. To achieve the best aerodynamic performance, the scientists simulated the use of the combined flow control accessory in a variety of situations, including high and low angle…

Chevron is buying Renewable Energy Group for $3.15 billion

By John Engel Follow @EngelsAngle Chevron will buy the biofuels company Renewable Energy Group for $3.15 billion, the companies announced on Feb. 28. Through the acquisition, Chevron aims to grow its renewable fuels production capacity to 100,000 per day by 2030. Renewable Energy Group operates 11 biorefineries in the U.S. and Europe and produced 519…

PNNL researchers announce waste-to-hydrogen conversion process

By Kevin Clark A research team at the Department of Energy’s Pacific Northwest National Laboratory has developed a system capable of converting waste from sewage, food crops, algae and other renewable carbon sources into hydrogen fuel. PNNL’s electrocatalytic oxidation fuel recovery system turns waste carbon from farms, sewage and other sources into high-grade bio-based fuels,…

The path to renewable fuel just got easier

The holy grail of bio-fuel researchers is to develop a self-sustaining process that converts waste from sewage, food crops, algae and other renewable carbon sources into fuels, while keeping waste carbon out of our atmosphere and water. Much progress has been made in converting such waste to useful fuel but completing the cycle using clean…
