Gleanings from the web and the world, condensed for convenience, illustrated for enlightenment, arranged for impact...

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.

    Sweden’s Ocean Energy Breakthrough

    The Wonder-Buoy That May Finally Make Wave Energy Feasible

    Rachel Nuwer, April 6, 2016 (Wired)

    “…[The to-and-fro and ebb-and-flow] motions of the ocean offer an endless supply of renewable energy…if engineers could figure out how to capture that power. Most prototypes for wave-energy converters have been massive and costly, or else they’re torn apart during violent storms at sea…[Sweden’s CorPower Ocean] may finally have a solution. Tests show its new buoy can produce three times as much electricity as the best rival tech, with a far more practical design…[Other devices are] hundreds of feet across and weigh well over a thousand tons…CorPower’s bobbing red machine is a mere 26 feet in diameter [but] can generate about 250 kilowatts of power—enough to cover the electricity needs of 200 homes…Wave-power farms could contain hundreds or even thousands of them…[F]ield trials are scheduled for next year…” click here for more
