NSW is the worst state in Australia for renewable energy use – and it is falling further behind, a new report from the Climate Council says.
Modelling shows Australian RET of 50% by 2030, rather than current trajectory of 34%, would almost double number of jobs created.
One of CSIRO’s main climate science units planned to slash four out of five researchers, all but eliminating its monitoring and climate modelling research, a new document reveals.
Elaine Buck grew up in the oilfields of Texas. She started her career as a navigation engineer on seismic research vessels for Schlumberger, a big oil-services company, and worked her way to high up in the executive ranks, with a salary to match. So how has this American hydrocarbon specialist ended up living in the tiny, remote Orkney islands off northern Scotland, and working at the forefront of renewable energy?
Work is finally set to begin on the Mugga Lane solar farm, almost three years after Chinese company Zhenfa won an ACT government contract to supply solar power.
Almost 100 million households worldwide may be powered by solar panels by 2020, according to Bloomberg New Energy Finance.
Almost 50,000 additional Canberra homes will be powered by renewable energy after a new wind farm contract was awarded by the ACT Government.
Morocco has activated the world’s largest solar power plant in the Sahara desert, near the city of Quarzazate. According to Climate Investment Funds (CIF), the plant is capable of powering over one million homes by 2018 and will also reduce carbon emissions by 760,000 tons er year.
Israel’s 787-foot concentrated solar power tower—which will be the world’s tallest such tower once construction is complete—will bring up to 121 megawatts of renewable power to the country.
German architect André Broessel, of Rawlemon, has looked into his crystal ball and seen the future of renewable energy. In this case it’s a spherical sun-tracking solar energy-generating globe — essentially a giant glass marble on a robotic steel frame. But this marble is no toy. It concentrates both sunlight and moonlight up to 10,000 times — making its solar harvesting capabilities 35 percent more efficient than conventional dual-axis photovoltaic designs.
Statoil ASA, Norway’s biggest oil and gas producer, will invest as much as $200 million in renewable energy over four to seven years as part of Chief Executive Officer Eldar Saetre’s plan to diversify the company’s portfolio.
Australia’s first household to add a Tesla Powerwall battery can this week begin buying and selling energy on the electricity market, after the addition of a world-leading software program by Canberra company, Reposit Power.
