    QUICK NEWS, July 19: The Time For New Energy Is Now; Wind Floats A Deepwater Future; Solar Keeps Getting More Affordable

    The Time For New Energy Is Now A New Climate Change Documentary Focuses On Solutions, Not Doom But Instills A Healthy Amount Of Fear, Too

    Grennan Milliken, July 18, 2016 (Popular Science)

    “Despite the shrillness of climate deniers in today’s political and media circuses, it’s fair to say that most regular citizens--and nearly all of the global scientific community--know that our planet’s climate is changing, and that those changes are already causing damage to our environments, cities, and economies and will continue to do so on a grander scale…[Time to Choose, from award winning filmmaker Charles Ferguson] is the latest documentary to attempt to tackle the subject and succeeds in many ways where other climate change documentaries [have failed. By effectively and truthfully explaining just how feasible and realistic the New Energy solutions to climate change are, it’s] a more welcome and informative watch than most documentaries with an environmental cause…[The film also breaks down the need for New Energy solutions] in the clearest, most coherent way possible for anyone to comprehend…” click here for more

    Wind Floats A Deepwater Future Are floating turbines the future of wind energy?

    Jennifer Johnson, July 17, 2016 (Energy Digital)

    “Wind turbine technology has come a long way in the quarter of a century since the world’s first offshore wind farm, Denmark’s Vindeby, was installed [with .45MW, 52.5m turbines]…Traditional ‘fixed’ turbines are limited to water depths of around 40 to 50m, mostly relegating offshore wind farms to the shallow waters of the continental shelf…[Deploying turbines beyond 100m] could allow them to harvest energy from some of the strongest winds on the planet…There are currently dozens of [‘floating’ turbine] pilot projects…which consist of [wind turbines mounted on buoyant structures and here are five proposals that could revolutionize] wind energy…1. Trident Winds’ Morro Bay Offshore Project…2. New England’s Aqua Ventus [off Maine]…3. Floatgen [off France’s Le Croisic coast]…4. [Principle Power’s] WindFloat [off Portugal’s Aguçadoura coast, and…5. [Statoil’s] Hywind [off Scotland’s coast]…” click here for more

    Solar Keeps Getting More Affordable You’ll Never Believe How Cheap New Solar Power Is

    Joe Romm, July 18, 2016 (Climate Progress)

    “Solar energy has grown 100-fold in [the U.S.] in the past decade. Globally, solar has doubled seven times since 2000, and Dubai received a bid recently for 800 megawatts of solar at a stunning $0.0299/kWh unsubsidized as compared to the $0.12/kWh average U.S. residential electricity price]…Solar energy has been advancing considerably faster than anyone expected just a few years ago thanks to aggressive market-based deployment efforts around the globe…[Costs have come down by a factor of 150 since 1975 and installed capacity has increased 115,000 times over and] for every doubling in scale of the solar industry, the price of solar modules has dropped roughly 26 percent…[It is projected that, by 2040, global investment in solar will reach $3.4 trillion, more than the projected $2.1 trillion investment in fossil fuels and $1.1 trillion in new nuclear] combined…[That will make wind and solar] the cheapest ways of producing electricity in many countries during the 2020s and in most of the world in the 2030s…” click here for more
