    QUICK NEWS, November 18: U.S. TAKES WORLD LEAD IN WIND; SOLAR TO SHOW MISSOURI JOBS; WAVE ENERGY ROLLING SLOWLY IN

    U.S. TAKES WORLD LEAD IN WIND US Leads the World on Wind Energy Production

    November 14, 2014 (Sustainable Business)

    “…[T]he latest data shows [the U.S.] leads the world on wind energy production…Even though China has a third more wind turbines installed…US wind farms are pumping out 20% more electricity…accounting for over 5% of US electricity this year for the first time…Electricity from wind now powers 15.5 million US homes [while wind installations in China sit idle waiting for transmission infrastructure]. As of September, 46,600 wind turbines generate 62.3 gigawatts (GW) of energy, and there's another 13.6 GW under construction across 105 projects in 21 states…Among them is the world's biggest - the 3 GW Chokecherry wind farm in Wyoming, which will power a million homes…Besides having outstanding wind resources - the Midwest has been called the Saudi Arabia of wind - supportive policies on the state and federal levels have led to impressive growth…With this growth has come economies of scale, bringing costs and electricity prices down. Turbines have become much more efficient…Siting decisions have evolved to mitigate wildlife impacts, while increasing output…” click here for more

    SOLAR TO SHOW MISSOURI JOBS Solar energy company expands to Missouri

    November 14, 2014 (AP via KSDK/Gannett)

    “Global solar energy company Sungevity is opening a new office in Kansas City that could bring almost 600 new jobs to Missouri…[The California-based company plans to make the state the home of a new sales and service center that could lead to 595 jobs in the next several years…[Sungevity] provides solar energy for homeowners. The state is working to make millions of dollars in incentives available…[and a] Department of Economic Development spokeswoman [said] the company could get more than $11.8 million from the state…Money from the Missouri Works program would be available if Sungevity meets job creation and investment criteria.” click here for more

    WAVE ENERGY ROLLING SLOWLY IN Wave Energy Developers Line Up for Hawaii Test Site

    Pete Danko, November 5, 2014 (Breaking Energy)

    “…[A]t least three full-scale wave energy converters, all intended to produce significant grid power when deployed in arrays, are now in line to be tested in Hawaii…[Columbia Power Technologies] signed a $3 million contract with the U.S. Navy that will support deployment of the company’s StingRAY device offshore from Marine Corps Base Hawaii Kaneohe Bay…[and the U.S. Department of Energy just] selected Northwest Energy Innovations and Ocean Energy to receive a total of $10 million to deploy devices at the same test site, on the windward side of Oahu…The Wave Energy Test Site in Hawaii will feature two grid-connected berths…[but it isn’t yet] clear when exactly the three devices…[will] go in the water…[and] there could actually be a fourth device bound for Hawaii, through another Navy contract…[T]he StingRAY and [Northwest’s] Azura are broadly similar – both are point absorbers, the most common format for deep-water wave energy generation…Ocean Energy uses an entirely different technology, known as oscillating water column…All of these devices – along with others being tested at the European Marine Energy Centre in Scotland and elsewhere – are striving against some tough odds to advance the proposition of wave energy for utility-scale generation…” click here for more
