  • U.S. - China renewable energy partnership

    In the fall of 2010, a team of engineers carefully installed an unusual, six-foot high enclosure on a windy plain some 200 miles northwest of Beijing. Inside the gray casing – which looks a bit like a giant rabbit from some angles – is a sensitive device that uses sound waves to measure wind speeds hundreds of feet up into the sky. It’s called the Triton Sonic Wind Profiler, and ...


  • Avoiding the Power Grid with Renewable Energy

    For approximately one hundred years, thriving countries have been dependent on only one form of distributing power; electricity sent over large transmission grids from plants generating electricity, to customers in businesses, homes, and factories.  Generators extract energy from rooftop solar panels, garbage, and sewage, which replace or assist coal, nuclear, and natural gas plants. A ...

  • Global Renewable Energy Market Analysis

        Europe, previously the largest renewable energy market in the world for many years, has recently been overtaken by Asia-Pacific. Under the European Union’s (EU) Renewables Directive, member states are committed to national targets that increase the share of renewable energy in their consumption by 2020. In October 2014, the EU adopted climate conservation ...


  • Saving Renewable Energy for a Rainy Day

    Despite advances in renewable energy technologies, one of the largest hurdles in their widespread adoption has been their intermittent reliability. Energy is only useful if it is available as the grid demands it, which is why concerns about carbon emissions are overridden in favor of the more dependable oil, coal and gas for baseload power. In order for renewable sources such as wind and solar ...

  • Solar: Meeting Nairobi's Energy Needs the Renewable Way

    It is no surprise for Nairobi residents, and many other African cities, to experience constant blackouts caused by inefficient grid systems and unreliable power sources from the utility companies. The conventional solution has been to install petroleum based electric generators to kick in during such incidents. However, the amount of energy that could be produced through solar equipment ...

  • Renewable Energy - A Key Solution to End Global Warming

    Scientists have spent years trying to find the causes of global warming leading to significant changes in the world’s climate. Their research shows that several factors have contributed to the rise of earth’s temperature and altering of natural cycles and actions. One key reason is excessive emission of greenhouse gases like, methane and carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere. These ...
