  • `SuperSmart Grid` could connect up renewable energy across Europe

    Renewable energy could help Europe meet twin goals: a more secure energy supply and climate change mitigation. A recent study describes a new approach to electricity distribution in the form of a 'SuperSmart Grid'. This supports both long-distance transmission and decentralised energy generation and could enable a 100 per cent renewable electricity system by 2050. A major problem with renewable ...

  • Wind energy bumps into power grid`s limits

    When the builders of the Maple Ridge Wind farm spent US$320 million to put nearly 200 wind turbines in upstate New York, the idea was to get paid for producing electricity. But at times, regional electric lines have been so congested that Maple Ridge has been forced to shut down even with a brisk wind blowing. That is a symptom of a broad national problem. Expansive dreams about renewable ...
