    1. Novel Designs Are Taking Wind Power to the Next Level

      Novel Designs Are Taking Wind Power to the Next Level

      New technology, including better control algorithms and communications, is improving the performance of wind turbines. Superficially, wind turbines haven’t changed much for decades. But they’ve gotten much smarter, and considerably bigger, and that’s helped increase the amount of electricity they can generate and lower the cost of wind power.

    2. Britain Revives Regulation in a Push for Renewable Energy

      Britain Revives Regulation in a Push for Renewable Energy

      Britain is returning to a system of greater market intervention to fulfill what the government considers to be an imperative to reduce greenhouse gases.  

      The British government announced on Friday far-reaching changes in energy regulation intended to encourage development of renewable energy and nuclear power while ensuring that the country can still meet its electricity needs.

      The changes will gradually quadruple the charges levied on consumers and businesses to help support electricity generation from low-carbon sources, to a total of about £9.8 billion, or $15.7 billion, in the 2020-21 fiscal year, from £2.35 billion now.

    3. Cloud Computing Shifting To Cooler Climates

      Now that cloud computing is officially in the mainstream, we’re seeing a growing interest in data center energy consumption. Since electronic components are constantly becoming smaller and more powerful, data centers must now deal with the heat generated by having thousands of high-power processors tightly packed into a small space. And because cloud computing is based on virtualization, the overall utilization of this hardware is much higher than it would be in a “one box, one application” data center environment.

    4. Should I Be Generating My Own Power for My Data Center?

      Should I Be Generating My Own Power for My Data Center?

      Energy is the lifeblood of data centers, and as it becomes scarcer and as its cost increases, more companies will consider the feasibility of generating their own power. Although the perceived benefits of on-site power generation—especially with renewable sources like wind and solar—are tempting, the decision to pursue either supplemental or exclusive generation is one that must be made carefully.

    5. Greenpeace and data centers: a tough love

      One April morning in Seattle, Greenpeace activists climbed a new Amazon office building in the city’s downtown and hung a gigantic (800 sq ft) cloud-shaped banner on the side of the structure, facing a nearby building occupied by Microsoft offices. The banner read: “Amazon, Microsoft: how clean is your cloud?” This was two days after Greenpeace published its latest How clean is your cloud? report – a scorecard for environmental friendliness featuring 14 of the Internet age’s biggest icons, many

      Obama Versus Romney On Energy -- In Depth This Time

      Cambridge, Mass.—Presidential debates are as much about style as they are about substance. But at a debate on energy at MIT on Friday, representatives from the Romney and Obama campaigns discussed the candidates’ views on energy in detail and drew clear differences between them on this issue.

    7. The Joy Of Green Energy: The Lights Go Out In 2015

      The Joy Of Green Energy: The Lights Go Out In 2015

      It's entirely possible to be convinced by the case about climate change and yet still believe that what we're doing about it is even worse than the original problem. It must be possible for that's the situation I find myself in. The latest little piece of news to underwrite this gloomy view is the news that the lights are likely to go out in my native UK, starting in only three year's time. Britain risks running out of energy generating capacity in the winter of 2015-16, according to the energy regulator Ofgem.

      Can China Save Silicon Valley's Struggling Solar Technology?

      MiaSolé, the Silicon solar startup that raised close to half a billion dollars from top venture capitalists to develop advanced photovoltaic technology, is being sold to Chinese renewable energy conglomerate Hanergy for $30 million. The fire sale, first reported by David Baker of the San Francisco Chronicle, shows that even as the Chinese solar industry struggles with its own severe financial problems China is poised to scoop up U.S. technology on the cheap.
