    QUICK NEWS, October 28: U.S. OFFSHORE WIND ON THE VERGE; HUNDREDS OF HIDDEN OIL SPILLS; HOME ENERGY MGMT TECHNOLOGY TO BOOM GLOBALLY

    U.S. OFFSHORE WIND ON THE VERGE New Report Shows Trend Toward Larger Offshore Wind Systems, with 11 Advanced Stage Projects Proposed in U.S. Waters

    October 23, 2013 (U.S. Department of Energy)

    "…[This year’s U.S. Offshore Wind Market and Economic Analysis, authored by the Navigant Consortium for the Energy Department shows] progress for the U.S. offshore wind energy market in 2012, including the completion of two commercial lease auctions for federal Wind Energy Areas and 11 commercial-scale U.S. projects representing over 3,800 megawatts (MW) of capacity reaching an advanced stage of development. Further, the report highlights global trends toward building offshore turbines in deeper waters and using larger, more efficient turbines in offshore wind farms, increasing the amount of electricity delivered to consumers…” click here for more

    HUNDREDS OF HIDDEN OIL SPILLS 100s of U.S. state's oil spills not publicized

    October 25, 2013(AP via USA Today)

    North Dakota, the No. 2 oil producing state behind Texas, recorded nearly 300 oil pipeline spills in less than two years, state documents show…[T]he pipeline spills, many of them small, are among some 750 ‘oil field incidents’ that have occurred since January 2012 without public notification…[R]egulators are reviewing the state's policies for when to publicly report such incidents after a massive spill was discovered last month in northwestern north Dakota by a wheat farmer. State and company officials kept it quiet for 11 days — and only said something after the AP asked about it…North Dakota regulators, like in many other oil-producing states, are not obliged to tell the public about oil spills under state law. But in a state that's producing a million barrels a day and saw nearly 2,500 miles (4,000 kilometers) of new pipelines last year, many believe the risk of spills will increase, posing a bigger threat to farmland and water…” click here for more

    HOME ENERGY MGMT TECHNOLOGY TO BOOM GLOBALLY Home Energy Management; In-Home Displays, Networked HEM Systems, Standalone HEM Systems, Web Portals, and Paper Bill HEM Reports: Global Market Analysis and Forecasts

    4Q 2013 (Navigant Research)

    "The home energy management (HEM) market continues to attract attention, especially with the increasing presence of newer stakeholders like broadband service providers (e.g., Verizon, AT&T, and Comcast) and security companies (e.g., ADT and Vivint). However, the products and services that constitute the HEM market continue to struggle for more traction [despite the increasingly smart grid]…Over the coming decade, a continued desire among consumers to reduce bills, regulatory mandates for greater efficiency, wider use of variable pricing schemes, and a strong green sentiment will combine to help drive adoption forward…Navigant Research forecasts that global revenue from various segments of the HEM market will grow from $300.7 million in 2012 to $1.8 billion in 2022…” click here for more
