The harnessing of wind for the generation of electricity may rely on a renewable source of energy, but it must also prove to be sustainable. All systems for converting energy into usable forms have energy requirements themselves, where energy must be invested in the myriad activities necessary for extracting and shaping materials, transport of parts and fuel, building and maintaining power plants and associated infrastructure, and decommissioning or upgrading the site. In its very broadest sense, some even include the expenditure of capital and labor as part of the energy investment.

The Key to Unlocking 100% Renewables

Article | February 27, 2020

The 100 percent renewable energy future doesn’t start with a country, state or region. It starts with a city. One power plant in a city, in fact. In Glendale, California. Glendale is a city of 200,000 people just north of Los Angeles. And in 2014, Glendale was in a tricky spot. The city’s natural-gas plant was old. The City Council faced a decision that would impact the municipality for decades to come: revamp the 252-megawatt gas plant or find local alternatives?

What is community solar and is it better than installing solar panels on your home?

Article | February 27, 2020

The U.S. reached a monumental 2 million solar installations in 2019. As more people look to save money through solar energy, many different options for doing so are becoming available. The U.S. Department of Energy defines community solar as “a solar-electric system that… provides power and/or financial benefit to… multiple community members.” These voluntary programs allow community residents to enjoy the perks of solar power without the large initial investment. The solar panels and related equipment are set up in a central location, so residents don’t need to buy and install equipment on their personal properties. The power produced by these projects is then shared by a community, and the hardware is either owned by the community itself or by a third party (i.e. Jaton’s community solar projects in California).

Renewable Energy Could Power the World by 2050

Article | February 27, 2020

Virtually all the world’s demand for electricity to run transport and to heat and cool homes and offices, as well as to provide the power demanded by industry, could be met by renewable energy by mid-century. This is the consensus of 47 peer-reviewed research papers from 13 independent groups with a total of 91 authors that have been brought together by Stanford University in California. Some of the papers take a broad sweep across the world, adding together the potential for each technology to see if individual countries or whole regions could survive on renewables.
