    QUICK NEWS, September 3: CHINA TO DOUBLE ENERGY WITH NEW ENERGY HALF OF BUILD; TRANSMISSION TO US INTERRUPTUS; CAR DEALERS GO SOLAR

    CHINA TO DOUBLE ENERGY WITH NEW ENERGY HALF OF BUILD China Power Seen Doubling With Renewables as Coal Holds Sway

    Sally Bakewell, August 26, 2013 (Bloomberg News)

    “China’s generation capacity will more than double to 2030, with half of all new plants powered by renewable energy and coal remaining the most important fuel…China may add 1,583 gigawatts of capacity and attract $1.4 trillion in renewables investment by that year, according to a Bloomberg New Energy Finance report. Coal will still account for more than 50 percent of power generation…[China] is seeking to meet demand that will probably grow 5 percent a year while forging a cleaner future after smog in Beijing in June surpassed hazardous levels. The government has boosted solar-power targets…” click here for more

Although the technology to solve the problem has existed for years, foot-dragging by utility companies has left the U.S. ill-prepared…That’s becoming a bigger problem every year, as an alternative energy revolution continues to gather strength. In 2012, wind power was the biggest source (43%) of new energy capacity while its price neared an all-time low and total U.S. wind-generation capacity reached 60 gigawatts–5% of total production capacity, with more than twice that much (135 GW) in the pipeline…” click here for more
