Offshore wind power helps UK reach record energy generation from renewables in second quarter

Almost a third of the UK's electricity was generated by renewables in the second quarter of 2017, according to government statistics – with wind producing more than any other clean energy source. New figures from the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy covering April to June show a record 29.8% was generated by renewable […]

Balancing out the lulls of wind power with a wider reach across Europe

Europe has seven prevailing weather regimes, a system windfarms could better exploit to even out supply and demand Renewable energy is great in principle, but, some people may say, how do we keep the lights on when the wind fails to blow or the sun doesn’t shine? The issue of “intermittency” is a criticism of […]

Rapid switch to renewable energy can put Paris climate goals within reach

Increasing renewables to 36% of the global energy mix by 2030 would provide about half emissions reductions needed to hold warming to 2C, says International Renewable Energy Agency Countries can deliver on the promises of the historic Paris climate change agreement by rapid scaling up wind and solar power to 36% of the global energy […]

Wind turbines reach new heights in push for greater renewable energy returns

But even proponents of wind power say they may be reaching a limit as logistics and a lack of social acceptance over their size start to hinder growth. San Francisco-based Pattern Energy Group Inc recently announced it will be installing 61 GE turbines at its Meikle wind project in British Columbia capable of generating between […]

Renewable Energy Redoubles Its Global Reach

A significant threshold has been crossed by renewable energy as analysts report that the sector’s size last year reached double the level it was at just 10 years earlier. This expansion happened in a year when the global economy and energy use both grew, but without a matching rise in emissions of carbon dioxide – […]
