While the OFFICE of President remains in highest regard at NewEnergyNews, this administration's position on climate change makes it impossible to regard THIS president with respect. Below is the NewEnergyNews theme song until 2020.

The challenge now: To make every day Earth Day.

    QUICK NEWS, April 5: NASA Goes Live With Climate Change Data; Ivanpah Solar Power Tower Hits Its Marks; California Moves Toward Floating Offshore Wind

    NASA Goes Live With Climate Change Data NASA’s new sea level site puts climate change papers, data, and tools online

    Devin Coldewey, April 4, 2016 (Tech Crunch)

    NASA just went live with it sea level tracking website. The free online resources make the all the proof of climate anybody could ever want just a click away…The Sea Level Change site provides space-based imagery as well as the history of sea level, ice reach, and other climate marker observing…It shows sea level now rising 3.4 millimeters annually…The Data Analysis Tool offers a world map with layers to analyze and animate that make it possible to watch sea level height and temperature changing over time. More datasets will be added…The database of published papers provides ample documentation…click here for more

    Ivanpah Solar Power Tower Hits Its Marks NRG Says Massive California Solar Plant Now on Pace to Meet Goal

    Joe Ryan, March 29, 2016 (Bloomberg News)

    NRG Energy, co-owner and operator of the three unit, 377 MW Ivanpah Solar Electric Generating System, the world’s biggest concentrating solar power plant, provided new production numbers showing it is on pace to meet the output called for in its contract with Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E)…The project generated 67,260 MWh of electricity in February, more than twice its February 2015 output of 30,273 MWh and may generate as much as 102% of its March target output, according to NRG, which co-owns Ivanpah with BrightSource Energy and Alphabet’s Google…NRG just entered a forbearance agreement with PG&E because units 1 and 3 did not meet the contract’s production target for its first two years of generation. New 12 month trend data shows it came within about 97% of that production target, according to BrightSource Sr VP Joseph Desmond…click here for more

    California Moves Toward Floating Offshore Wind US Considers 800-MW Floating Wind Farm in California

    Brian Eckhouse, March 24, 2016 (Bloomberg News via Renewable Energy World)

    The U.S. Department of Interior (DOI) Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) ruled the Trident Winds application to development a floating offshore wind project off the California coast meets the legal, technical, and financial standards for a commercial lease on the Outer Continental Shelf…Trident’s unsolicited January application proposed an up to 1,000 MW wind project about 33 nautical miles northwest of Morro Bay off California’s coast. The project’s first phase would consist of 100 floating turbines with nameplate capacities of between 7 MW and 8 MW…BOEM will next determine whether a competitive or non-competitive bidding process for leases is needed and solicit input from the public…Two floating wind turbine designs are expected to be available to developers after 2020, Statoil’s Hywind and Principle Power’s WindFloat…click here for more
