Gleanings from the web and the world, condensed for convenience, illustrated for enlightenment, arranged for impact...

While the OFFICE of President remains in highest regard at NewEnergyNews, this administration's position on climate change makes it impossible to regard THIS president with respect. Below is the NewEnergyNews theme song until 2020.

The challenge now: To make every day Earth Day.

    THE EU REACHES 100 GIGAWATTS OF WIND

    EU reaches 100 GW wind power milestone

    27 September 2012 (European Wind Energy Association)

    “The European Union has passed the milestone of 100 gigawatt (GW) of installed wind power capacity...100 GW of wind power can generate electricity over a year to meet the total consumption of 57 million households, equivalent to the power production of 39 nuclear power plants.

    “It took the European wind energy sector some twenty years to get the first 10 GW grid connected. It only needed 13 years to add an additional 90 GW. Half of the total European wind power capacity has been installed over the past six years…”

    “Recent wind turbine installations contributing to the 100 GW milestone include…Anholt offshore wind farm, 400 MW developed by DONG off the coast of Denmark…Linowo, 48 MW developed by EDF Energies Nouvelles Polska in Poland…Ausumgaard, 12 MW developed by a private landowner in Denmark (west Jutland)… Akoumia, 7.2 MW developed by Greek power company PPCR on the island of Crete.

    “100 GW of wind power can produce the same amount of electricity over a year as…62 coal power plants, or…39 nuclear power plants, or…52 gas power plants…To produce the same amount of electricity as 100 GW of wind turbines in a year you would have to…Mine, transport and burn 72 million tonnes of coal, at a cost of €4,983 million, and emit 219.5 Mt of CO2, or…Extract, transport and burn 42.4 million cubic meters of gas, at a cost of €7,537 million, and emit 97.8 Mt of CO2…”
