APS Taps Wind to Deliver Clean Energy to its Customers

"'Renewable energy resources like this wind power are important to a diverse and increasingly clean energy mix for Arizona,' says Brad Albert, vice president of resource management at APS. 'By working with supplier partners like Leeward, APS is advancing toward our target of having 45% of our generation portfolio in renewable energy by 2030 on the path to 100% clean energy by 2050.'"

This Startup Plans To Recycle Waste To Produce Energy Cheaper Than Gas

“A few players are tapping into the renewable hydrogen market. One of them being California based, Ways2H, which has developed a technology that converts waste into renewable hydrogen through a zero-carbon process. Wasy2H takes waste, that does not contain metal or glass, anything from medical supplies, wood or even plastic litter, and through a patented thermochemical process (not burning), converts it into a gas, from which it then extracts the hydrogen. And voila, near carbon free hydrogen.”

DOE study: This rooftop solar fix could slash CO2

"'A lot of people talk about rooftop solar as, maybe this could be part of the solution for energy justice,’ he said. ‘Whereas now, it's part of the problem. The motivation of this paper is, maybe there are some policies and business models that have begun to alleviate this problem.’"

The Combined Power Of Floating Solar On Hydro Reservoirs Shows New Potential

“While floating PV (FPV) is 10%-15% higher in upfront capital costs and per-kilowatt cost compared to conventional PV, FPV used in conjunction with hydropower provides a host of other benefits. These include reduced transmission costs by linking to a common substation, reduced evaporation, reduced algae growth on hydro reservoirs, and increased efficiency of panels due to its water-cooling effect.”

Researchers discover a new way to produce hydrogen using microwaves

“The technology developed and patented by the UPV and CSIC is based on the phenomenon of the microwave reduction of solid materials. This method makes it possible to carry out electrochemical processes directly without requiring electrodes, which simplifies and significantly cheapens its practical use, as it provides more freedom in the design of the structure of the device and choosing the operation conditions, mainly the temperature."

For a Climate-Concerned President and a Hostile Senate, One Technology May Provide Common Ground

"‘If you look at wind, that was the result of a whole bunch of different, really aggressive policy actions,’ said Rich Powell, executive director of ClearPath, a nonprofit that advocates for conservative clean energy policies. He noted that a combination of federal tax breaks and renewable electricity standards at the state level drove down the cost of wind over decades, and that the same has happened for solar over the past 15 years. ‘We're only seeing the beginnings of all those things for carbon capture.’"
