  • Powerful Wind Blows through US Energy Sector

    The wind turbines are turning across America, and a majorreport by the US Department of Energy (DOE) says the wind energy sector now supplies 4.5% of the nation’s electricity. Given the right energy policies and investment in infrastructure, that figure could increase to 10% by 2020 and to 35% by 2050, the DOE predicts. That will not ...

  • Wind energy could power China, study finds

    Wind power alone could provide electricity for all of China if the country overhauls its rural grids and raises the subsidy for wind energy, a new study finds.  China has rapidly become a global leader in wind energy and now ranks fourth in the world in installed capacity. But coal-fired power plants continue to supply most of the country's rising electricity needs - a development path that ...

  • The Spanish Wind Energy Association launches the wind power barometer to show that wind energy reduces electricity price

     It´s a fact that wind power reduces the price of electricity: the more the wind blows, the lower the pool or wholesale electricity market price is, which benefits consumers and companies in their electricity bills. To make this lowering effect of wind power on prices more evident to consumers, the Spanish Wind Energy Association (AEE) has launched its wind barometer, ...

  • Wind power `can be cheaper` than photovoltaics, study says

    Generating wind energy is more than twice as cheap as solar photovoltaic (PV) energy production, a study of alternative energy in six developing countries has found. The findings, published in Nature Climate Change last week (15 April), could help inform global debates on financing initiatives aimed at reducing greenhouse gas emissions in developing countries. The authors note that ...

  • Wind power comes out top in review of alternative energy sources

    A new study ranks alternative energy sources in terms of their overall impact on the environment and human health. The report offers guidance for policy makers making decisions on which emerging technologies to support. Substantial investment in development of alternative energy sources is needed in order to meet greenhouse gas emissions targets. But policymakers must make tough choices when ...

  • Energy answer: Blowing in the wind?

    When the federal government approved the Cape Wind project in April, allowing 130 power-generating turbines to be placed in the waters off Cape Cod, it gave a significant boost to the prospects of wind energy. The comparatively high costs of wind power, however, remain a problem. But in a study, MIT researchers have concluded that some of the price problems associated with wind power can be ...
