    QUICK NEWS, August 7: SOLAR LAND PLANNING CRITIQUED; COMMUNITY WIND GETS GO IN MAINE; CELLULOSIC BIOFUELS GO COMMERCIAL SCALE

    SOLAR LAND PLANNING CRITIQUED NREL Report Highlights Land Use Requirements For Solar Plants

    Michael Puttre, 31 July 2013 (Solar Industry)

    “A new [NREL] report…on the land use requirements of solar power plants suggests planners and developers tend to underestimate the acreage required for their projects…[D]ata from 72% of the solar power plants installed or under construction in the U.S…found a wide range of total land use requirements for solar power plants across technologies. Generation-weighted averages for total area requirements range from about 3 acres per GWh per year (GWh/yr) for concentrating solar power towers and concentrated photovoltaic installations to 5.5 acres per GWh/yr for small two-axis flat panel PV power plants…” click here for more

    CELLULOSIC BIOFUELS GO COMMERCIAL SCALE DOE Announces Biofuel Milestone

    August 2, 2013 (SmartMeters)

    “The United States Department of Energy has recognized America’s first commercial-scale cellulosic ethanol production at INEOS Bio’s Indian River BioEnergy Center in Vero Beach, Florida. The project uses a hybrid of gasification and fermentation technology to convert wood scraps, grass clippings, and other waste materials into transportation fuels as well as energy for heat and power…The Indian River County BioEnergy Center (Center) will have an annual output of eight million gallons of cellulosic ethanol per year from vegetative, yard, and municipal solid waste as well as six megawatts of clean, renewable power annually—enough to run the entire facility and provide excess power to the local community…” click here for more
