$150 Million Loan Heats Up Offshore Wind Power Race

July 8, 2014

The Cape Wind offshore wind power project in Massachusetts is thisclose to receiving an Energy Department loan guarantee of $150 million. Although the news got buried by some other things that were going on last week, the massive 340-MW wind farm is especially significant because it is a linchpin for the Obama Administration’s ambitious plan for developing 54 GW (yep, that’s gigawatts) of commercial scale offshore wind power by 2030.

Blackle to save the Energy while browsing….

May 14, 2009

Google is the second Brain to many of us.
We use it frequently.
It uses white screen which consumes high power.

Read the following………
If Google had a black screen,
taking in Account the huge number of page views,
according to calculations, 750 mega watts/hour
per year would be saved..!!!!! !

In response, Google created a black version
of its search engine, called Blackle,
with the exact same functions as the white version,
but obviously with lower energy consumption:

Wind power calculator launched..

March 7, 2009

The Carbon Trust has launched a new online tool to help businesses and consumers considering installing a wind turbine to work out how much power it could generate alongside the cost and carbon savings. The tool will help ensure small-scale turbines are Installed inlocatlons where they will deliver the most carbon and cost savings. By inputting a postcode, details about the surrounding landscape and the type of turbine, users can calculate the annual mean wind speed as well as the likely energy generation and carbon savings. Carbon Trust director of Innovations Mark Williamson said: “In the right location small-scale wind turbines can provide both cost and carbon savings, but anyone considering Installing a turbine should use the new Carbon Trust wind estimator to check before proceeding with actual onsite wind monitoring.”

The “Wind Yield Estimation Tool” Is freely available on the Carbon Trust website and can be accessed here: http://www.carbontrust.co.uk

Welcome to Wind Power Asia 2009 – Excelling with Wind Power

February 28, 2009

 

The Wind Power Asia (WPA) was first launched in 2003 with 47 exhibitors and only 1,500 sqm floor space; yet, the exhibition has received tremendous success over the past few years.

With the strong support from the China Bureau of Energy of the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC), the Department of High and New Technology Development and Industrialization of the Ministry of Science and Technology of China; with many other international partners including the Danish Wind Energy Group and Invest in Denmark China; demonstrating the steady growth of the WPA exhibition.

Until 2008, the WPA exhibition has extended to over 23,000 sqm, with more than 296 exhibitors and 10,890 professional visitors from 41 different countries and regions.

 

The WPA event is now become Asia’s largest and most influential wind power exhibition.

About Green Tech History Author Alexis Madrigal:

 

Alexis Madrigal is a leading green tech writer. Since joining Wired.com as a staff writer in 2007, he has helped build Wired Science into the largest science blog in the world, with millions of visitors per month. He was a major part of Wired.com’s Webby award win for “Best Writing” and hosts the popular Wired Science video podcast.

He’s been invited to speak at South by Southwest, Berkeley Journalism School, Stanford Law School, E3, and Webvisions, and is a regular guest on NPR. Madrigal is the youngest staff member at WIRED, but maintains the institution’s most unpredictable beard.

Madrigal’s innovative journalism has attracted notice from the heavyweights of the field. He wrote the first feature for the new Knight Foundation-backed startup, Spot.Us, about how ethanol rides the rails from the plants of Iowa to the fuel terminals of Northern California. Following the publication of the piece, Harvard’s Nieman Foundation asked him to contribute an essay on new ideas in journalism.

Madrigal traces his need to tell stories to the Mexican border. It’s there that his father crossed into the US. His father has never filled in the details, so the son has, imagining the chiaroscuro life he must have lived in those first years in stateside. Besides, only in fantasies does the son of a random immigrant and a carpenter’s daughter go to Harvard.

Once there, he alloyed his intuitive writing skills with book-learning in the history-heavy English department. He garnered magna cum laudehonors, largely due to his thesis, a novella, In Loco Parentis.

He now lives in San Francisco, where he insists on relentlessly telling stories from the green tech past to people fixated on the future.
