      Google increases its Renewable Energy 73% which means? more data center capacity?

      Google has a blog post on its adding more wind power.  Adding 240MW on top 330MW = 570MW of wind power.  Which means???  possibly Google is adding 73% data center capacity over the next year or so.  Why else would Google who is carbon neutral add another 240MW?  The new wind farm capacity comes on line by end of 2014.

      IBM Provides Modelling Technology For Renewable Energy System

      IBM announced an advanced power and weather modelling technology that will help utilities increase the reliability of renewable energy resources. The system combines weather prediction and analytics to forecast the availability of wind power and solar energy. This will enable utilities to integrate more renewable energy into the power grid, helping to reduce carbon emissions while improving clean energy output.

    6. Building Efficient Data Centers

      Development projects from large companies like Google or Facebook are great learning opportunities, but as impressive as their innovation may be, they aren’t always practical lessons for small- and medium-sized operators. When it comes to energy efficiency, we don’t all have the luxury of building our data centers on the edge of the Arctic Circle or in areas with plenty of geothermal or hydroelectric power, but that doesn’t mean building a super-energy-efficient facility is only wishful thinking—low PUEs are juicy fruit for those who are willing to make the effort.

      Does Amazon Have A Renewable Energy Problem?

      The company’s massive data centers require a huge amount of power, most of which comes from coal. And that’s not changing. Facebook, Apple, Google, Rackspace, and most of the other major players in the cloud computing world have made a show in recent years of moving their data centers to renewable energy.

      Cleantech Investments A Mixed Bag in 2Q13, But VCs Are Warming Up To Solar

      Investments in the renewable energy sector were a mixed bag during the second quarter of 2013, according to a trio of analyst reports and many of the same trends we've seen lately persist: the U.S. and Asia-Pacific regions were more active, and downstream activity continues to intensify.

    10. A Sneak Peek of the National Grid on Renewables

      A Sneak Peek of the National Grid on Renewables

      A government research facility uses a megawatt-scale simulator and supercomputer to test futuristic grid technologies without disrupting today’s grid. A new $135 million research facility aims to solve a puzzle: how can countries prepare for an energy system that relies heavily on renewable energy? It can also test ways to improve reliability under stress, for example when demand soars in the summer as the air-conditioning load taxes the grid.

    11. Is The UK Government Greener Than It Lets On?

      Is The UK Government Greener Than It Lets On?

      Last week President Obama backed nuclear power and “cleaner” fossil fuels in a speech from Georgetown University. He pledged to bypass Congress if necessary, to get the measures passed. The new policy was praised by environmentalists, although some thought it too optimistic about “clean coal” and nuclear power. Over here, you’d never get such a speech from David Cameron, or even Chancellor George Osborne. They are reluctant to talk of investing in anything because it might sound like heresy against the austerity gospel. And austerity is supposed to be the thing that will return us to riches.
