    NUKES OUT, WIND IN FOR BRAZIL Brazil cools on nuclear power plans; favors wind

    Brian Winter, September15,2013 (Reuters)

    “…Brazil will probably scale down its plans for new nuclear plants due to safety concerns following the 2011 radiation leak in Japan and pick up some of the slack with a ‘revolution’ in wind power…Mauricio Tolmasquim, chief of the Energy Research Company, [said] it was ‘unlikely’ the government would stick to its plans to build four new nuclear plants by 2030…[Brazil’s] power grid currently relies on hydroelectric dams for about 75 percent of its needs…[N]uclear power accounts for a little more than 1 percent…about the same as wind turbines…Average wind power prices in Brazil have declined from 148 reais ($64) per megawatt-hour at the end of 2009 to 110 reais per megawatt hour this year…” click here for more

    September 16, 2013 (New York State Energy Research and Development Authority)

    “…[T]he New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA)…will provide the Long Island Power Authority (LIPA) with $5 million to restart its popular residential Solar Pioneer program, in support of Governor Cuomo’s NY-Sun initiative and to help sustain the solar industry on Long Island…The funding, which will be available beginning September 23rd, is being provided by NYSERDA using Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI) auction proceeds…NYSERDA recently submitted a petition to the New York State Public Service Commission (PSC) seeking authorization…to identify the merits and potential for greater efficiencies and success with a more coordinated statewide PV incentive program…” click here for more

    SHOULD DOE FUND WAVE-AND-TIDE ENERGY? Ocean Energy Has Vast Potential but Many Waves to Skirt

    Ken Silverstein, September 3, 2013 (Energy Central)

    “…[T]he U.S. Department of Energy just said it would invest $16 million in 17 different projects that capture energy from waves and tides…[Advocates say marine and hydro-kinetic energy] is another arrow in the quiver of the nation’s energy portfolio…[that] increases reliability while also being environmentally friendly…[D]etractors say that the energy form is unproven and expensive, and that governments should not fund such risks…Ocean technologies are part of the larger debate over government’s role in helping to develop and commercialize promising technologies. The Energy Department is calculating that those concepts are a good bet and it is providing some funding to nudge them forward…” click here for more
