Florida Energy Company Abandons Nuclear Power Plants in Favour of Solar Farms for energy

This announcement could be another nail in the coffin for American nuclear power Nuclear power is not doing well in the United States. Recently, nuclear reactor manufacturer Westinghouse declared bankruptcy, and nuclear plants under construction in South Carolina and Georgia that were planning to use Westinghouse reactors now have uncertain futures. Just this Tuesday, Duke […]

Australia’s biggest wind farm comes to the Sunshine State Queensland Australia

By 2019, 123 turbines will be spinning 453MW of energy at Coopers Gap Wind Farm, between Kingaroy and Dalby in Queensland. The announcement on August 17 of Australia’s biggest wind farm is the result of creative collaboration and supple engineering solutions. GE will supply and install 123 turbines for the farm,  owned  by the Powering […]

Scientists Are Now Even One Step Closer to Using Algae as Biofuel

A breakthrough by a group of scientists makes algae a potentially viable source of bio-fuel. The world is trying to wean itself off of fossil fuels. It’s vital we reduce our carbon footprint as much as possible in the next few decades, and many countries, states, cities, businesses, and people are committing to that goal. […]

Chile Generates Such Excessive Solar Power That It Just Gives the Extra Away

It sounds like a treat, but is it bad news for the energy industry. Chile has so much solar energy that the price of solar frequently drops to zero, which is great news for consumers but frustrating for energy companies and investors. Under President Michelle Bachelet, Chile has been aggressively expanding its solar energy generation, […]

Europe Pledges to Quintuple Their Offshore Wind Power Generators by the year 2030

The new arrangement will add an additional 60 gigawatts of power and dramatically reduce expenses for any future projects. A few decades from now, most of our energy will likely come from the sea. At least, from the wind above the sea. One of the fastest growing and most efficient energy markets is offshore wind, […]
