Comments Off on Germany more than doubled its wind power capacity in 2014

In 2014, Germany’s capacity for wind power generation jumped to more than double the previous year’s figures, thanks to the work of 543 offshore wind turbines that have established Germany’s offshore wind power capacity at 2.35 gigawatts (GW). This is just a stepping stone for Germany on its way to a goal of having 6.5 GW of wind energy infrastructure installed and connected by 2020.

Comments Off on Renewable Energy is Outpacing Nuclear as Scotland’s Top Power Source in 2014

For the first time in Scotland’s history, renewables outpaced other power sources to become the country’s largest source of energy for the first half of 2014. An analysis done by the Scottish Renewables trade group shows that energy from hydro power, wind farms and other green technologies produced almost a third more power than nuclear, coal or gas during the first six months of this year – a total of 10.4 terawatt hours of electricity.

Comments Off on Global Solar Power Passes 100,000 Megawatt Milestone and Continues to Increase Rapidly

Image via Flickr The sun is shining on solar energy across the world. In 2012, a record  31,100 megawatts of solar photovoltaics (PV) was installed, pushing the total global solar power capacity past 100,000 megawatts. Now, new reports from the Earth Policy Institute and Worldwatch Institute find that more countries are getting into the solar power game as costs come down and installations ramp up. Solar PV installed capacity increased by 41 percent in 2012 alone, with more than 30 countries now claiming capacity of over 100 megawatts—a figure that is projected to double by 2018.

Comments Off on President Obama Says He Will Only Approve Keystone XL Pipeline if it Doesn’t Increase Carbon Pollution

In the run up to President Obama’s much-anticipated speech laying out his administration’s climate plan, observers speculated that Obama wouldn’t mention the Keystone Pipeline in the speech. Even a version of the speech that was leaked just hours before it was delivered made no mention of the pipeline. But in a surprise move, the president offered a hint at what his decision will be.
