Winona County’s economic development authority revealed several more details and funding proposals for a proposed 2-megawatt turbine during a work session Tuesday, as preparations move toward a vote on final approval later this year. The county board will be asked next Tuesday to approve $48,000 to complete studies for the turbine.
HERKIMER — It is a matter of money.
BEEKMANTOWN -- More than 50 residents filled the usually sparsely attended meeting of the Beekmantown Town Council on Monday night.
CLWYD West MP David Jones has condemned the proposed 200-turbine Gwynt-y-Môr windfarm off Llandudno.
European and Asian companies are paying more attention to global warming than their American counterparts. And chemical companies are more focused on the issue than oil companies.
After months of careful consideration Janson has decided the project will not promote the general good of the state. Now enter the rogue representatives. They have created Joint House Resolution J.H.R. 64. The point of this resolution is to help wind developers have their way at ruining the state's ridgelines, while promoting an obsolete technology, that can realistically do very little.
Objectors are to fight plans which could see one of Argyll's most scenic lochs surrounded by four new windfarms with a total of 76 turbines.
(CSRwire) Owens Corning (OWENQ.OB) announced at the European Wind Energy Conference and Exhibition in Athens, Greece, a breakthrough single-end roving and knitted fabric, WindStrand™, which will allow the wind energy market to take another step forward in competing successfully against other alternative energy sources by reducing the cost per kilowatt-hour (kwh.) The product will allow turbine manufacturers to increase blade lengths by as much as six percent and deliver up to 12 percent more power -- for up to 20 percent less cost than any competing carbon-glass hybrid solution currently on the market.
I can also announce a new fund, initially £50 millions, for microgeneration technologies which make it possible for homes and businesses to generate their own renewable energy. The purpose of this £50 million fund is to show how we can make these technologies from wind turbines to solar heating, affordable to schools, housing associations, businesses including local authority tenants – initially 25,000 buildings.
An appeal against plans for two wind turbines was thrown into turmoil yesterday after Norwich International airport dropped safety objections at the 11th hour.
Swedish Radio News reports that the opposition Center Party has joined with the government in a new agreement on energy that includes a major effort to develop wind power.
UP to 83 wind turbines could be built off the south Lincolnshire coast in a project aimed at increasing renewable energy sources in the region.
An ANGLO-Dutch developer planning a controversial Highland windfarm exaggerated both its likely power generation and its forecast contribution towards reducing carbon emissions, it was claimed yesterday.
Lack of a long-term federal tax credit continues to hamper the wind farm industry and fosters a boom-and-bust cycle of construction, developers said on Monday at a conference on financing renewable energy.
On Thursday, AWEA submitted testimony to the House of Representatives Appropriations Subcommittee on Energy & Water Development calling for a substantial boost in wind energy research and development (R&D) funding to $70 million next year.
Wind power is coming to Ontario because our government is hell-bent on going green. ...If only we could figure out how to get energy from hot air. Then we'd have all the power we need, forever.
So, where are we now? Controversy over the East Haven opinion is hardly a sign that the permit process is broken, but rather a confirmation that it works. Now we need to take the ambivalence out of this by thoughtfully delineating which impacts and tradeoffs are acceptable with wind power development, and which are not. This is a tough balance to strike, but we should rejoice that in Vermont these choices are still ours to make.
Let me be clear from the start - we are not opposed to renewables. Our companies have been the beneficiaries of the state's most abundant form of renewable energy - hydropower. What we do object to is being forced to subsidize those renewables that are not cost competitive...............Adding significant amounts of wind power does not negate the need to add more baseload generation, to ensure system reliability during periods of peak demand. Until we add significant baseload capacity in this state we are not likely to reap the benefits of a truly competitive marketplace where supply will respond to demand.
Rt Hon HELEN CLARK: I would love to see us reduce our reliance on fossil fuels, but frankly, if it is a choice between New Zealanders going without power and having a coal-fired power station to give it to them, I know what I am going to choose.
Kelly Fuller kept her cool yesterday as San Diego Gas & Electric revealed a proposed route for the Sunrise Powerlink, a new transmission line she strongly opposes. She kept her cool mostly, that is.
