    NEW ENERGY 30% OF U.S. ENERGY IN 2013 Fed Report Says Solar Leads All New U.S. Capacity Except Gas

    18 October 2013 (Solar Industry)

    “The U.S. Federal Energy Regulatory Commission's (FERC) Office of Energy Projects reports new natural gas dominated the first three quarters of the year with 5.85 GW, representing 54.6% of new capacity…[R]enewable energy sources accounted for 30% of all new domestic electrical generating capacity over the same period…[S]olar led the way…with 1.94 GW of added capacity…[N]ew solar capacity is 77.4% higher than that for the same period in 2012…New wind capacity accounted for 961 MW, followed by biomass with 192 MW…The renewables…3.22 GW..[is more than] the 1.54 GW provided by coal. There was only 27 MW of oil-fired capacity…and no new nuclear power…Renewable sources now account for 15.7% of total installed U.S. operating generating capacity - more than nuclear (9.2%) and oil (4.1%) combined.” click here for more

    HUGE ENERGY STORAGE MANDATE IN CALIF California Regulators Set Massive Energy Storage Goal

    October 18, 2013 (North American Windpower)

    “The California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) has established an energy storage target of 1.325 GW for Pacific Gas and Electric Co., Southern California Edison, and San Diego Gas and Electric by 2020, with installations required no later than by the end of 2024…The decision will increase California's installed energy storage capacity sixfold from its current 35 MW (excluding large-scale pumped hydro storage)…According to the CPUC, the guiding principles of its decision are grid optimization, the integration of renewable energy, and the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions to 80% below 1990 levels by 2050, per California's goals…Some energy storage facilities are expected to come into service as early as 2015…” click here for more

    EVOLVING WAVE ENERGY DEVICE PASSES TANK TEST Next-Gen Pelamis Wave Energy Converter Successfully Passes Initial Tests

    September 24, 2013 (The Daily Fusion)

    "Tank testing of [two 29th scale Pelamis P2e] models to develop the next generation of Pelamis Wave Power’s wave energy converter (WEC) machines has now been successfully completed. The tank testing process [where models were exposed to the full-scale equivalent of 50 hours of extreme storms with waves were up to 23m high] forms a key part of a £1.4m ($2.25m) project…[aimed at boosting] the cost-effectiveness of large-scale WEC arrays in UK waters…The Pelamis Wave Energy Converter is made up of connected sections which flex and bend as waves pass...to generate electricity. Developed by the Scottish company Pelamis Wave Power (formerly Ocean Power Delivery), the Pelamis became the world’s first offshore wave machine to generate electricity into the grid, when it was first connected to the UK grid in 2004…” click here for more
