    1. The reality of renewable energy resources for data centers

      With energy prices on the rise and carbon footprints front of mind, it's time to look at renewable energy resources for data center power. Powering a data center often means tying into a national grid for the primary power source and backing this up with uninterruptable power supplies (UPS) and auxiliary generators.

      Is the 50% efficient solar cell on the horizon?

      The summer sunshine is upon us, at least here on the east coast, which means it’s the perfect time to think about how best to harness those golden rays for clean energy. The solar industry’s power players put their newest tech on display at last week’s Intersolar North America conference in San Francisco, despite the industry’s slightly depressed showing this year (see Ucilia Wang’s report from the trade show floor).

      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.

    4. 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.

    5. 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.

      Green Initiatives : Changing Perceptions

      Being cleaner than many traditional industries, telecommunications has been generally perceived as environment friendly but when it comes to green initiatives, Indian service providers are yet to meet global standards. There is a growing need for mobile operators to control the construction and operation costs of infrastructure and services in an end-to-end manner while taking up the social responsibility of environmental protection through energy savings and emission reductions.

      Facebook's Iowa Data Center has three phases over 6 years

      Des Moines Register has a review of the 18 month process the City of Altoona went through.   What seems interesting is a tax issue based on a three limit needed to get changed to six. Also in March, a roadblock suddenly emerges: VanderZanden emails Durham that state rules prohibit the company from fully benefiting from Altoona’s proposed 20-year tax abatement. The rules specify that all phases must be built within a three-year project completion window.
