Clean Coal Technology and The Energy Review

Clean_coal_energy_review_thumb This report is based on data provided by the International Energy Agency, the Department of Trade & Industry, the Royal Academy of Engineering, Princeton University and a number of other respected sources. It sets out an agenda for Government in the short term and the long term, answering the key issues raised by the Government's current Energy Review related to power generation: the economy, the environment and security of supply.

Wind Advisory

As a boat angler who haunts Nantucket Sound, I'm especially concerned about its fish resources. Yet whenever I have sought solace from Cape Wind and the Corps in the form of cogent answers to my questions, I've gotten only what they hope to harness--wind.

UK Energy Policy: The Small Business Perspective & The Impact on the Rural Economy

Sbcenergyreport_thumb This report surveys the intense debate now taking place as to why the chosen strategy is not achieving its objectives. We believe that a principal factor is to be found in the increasingly controversial renewable energy policy, which is widely criticised for its lack of balance and its over-emphasis on onshore wind at the expense of other technologies.

Consider urban windmills - Instead of spoiling the looks around DeHart Dam, mayor could locate energy source within the city

Had Mayor Stephen R. Reed come forth with a windmill project that tapped Harrisburg's wind assets, we would have been enthusiastic supporters. Instead, he proposes building a wind farm in rural Clarks Valley, on the ridges above the city's DeHart Reservoir, and marring one of the last large tracts of wild country left in eastern Pennsylvania.

Northeast Kingdom lawmakers test wind

The consensus among the lawmakers seems to be that wind developers' proposals for wind turbines are moving too quickly to the Public Service Board for approval before communities have a chance to fully explore what they would mean. This is a discussion that is overdue at the Statehouse. Lawmakers should call for a time-out on the permitting of commercial wind farms. The people of Vermont deserve a chance to understand the impact of 400-foot-tall turbines on the ridgelines -- before they are built.

State needs farmers for wind test

State officials are looking for a few farmers to test the wind with more than a wet index finger. Michigan State University will place five anemometers around the state to measure wind velocity, the first step in gauging whether wind generators are feasible statewide.

Energy panel cites its successes

The idea of a wind turbine to power Town Hall was ruled out, however, as was turning to hydroelectric generation at Mill Pond Dam, but the committee recommendations on lighting at Town Hall, Rowe Elementary School, and other town buildings produced energy savings.
