2023, August, 11, 06:35:00ENVIRONMENTALLY DAMAGING RENEWABLES
Wind and solar are dilute energy. They require vast amounts of land to generate the electricity required by modern society.
2023, July, 21, 06:45:00BAD WIND & SOLAR STRATEGY
Wind employs twice as many people as coal power generation. However, coal still produces 19.5% of our electricity while wind only accounts for 10.2%.
2023, July, 7, 06:35:00EUROPEAN GREEN ENERGY CRISIS & POLICY
By 2021, wind, solar, and natural gas provided 48 percent of Germany’s electricity, and provided most of the electricity consumed in Italy (63%), the UK (64%), and the Netherlands (78%).
2023, June, 16, 06:50:00GLOBAL RENEWABLES UP BY 107 GW
Global renewable capacity additions are set to soar by 107 gigawatts (GW), the largest absolute increase ever, to more than 440 GW in 2023.
2023, May, 26, 06:40:00U.S. RENEWABLES UP
New utility-scale solar capacity was 2,530 megawatts (MW) or 39.56% of the total ... and that does not include small-scale distributed PV systems. New wind capacity provided 1,475-MW or 23.06% of the total.
2023, April, 7, 06:55:00U.S. OFFSHORE WIND STRATEGY
Offshore wind is rapidly growing around the world, becoming a central part of international decarbonization and a vital part of coastal economies, and the domestic potential to harness offshore wind is now emerging.
2023, March, 24, 07:25:00GLOBAL RENEWABLES CAPACITY UP
Renewable generation capacity increased by 295 GW (+9.6%) in 2022. Solar energy continued to lead capacity expansion, with a massive increase of 192 GW (+22%), followed by wind energy with 75 GW (+9%). Renewable hydropower capacity increased by 21 GW (+2%) and bioenergy by 8 GW (+5%). Geothermal energy increased by a very modest 181 MW.
2023, March, 15, 07:00:00CHINA ENERGY MODERNIZATION
China has accounted for the world's largest solar capacity addition in recent years, with around 30% of installed global capacity, but most of the low-hanging fruits have been picked, and deeper penetration into the energy mix requires overhauling large parts of the power system.
2023, March, 1, 10:55:00AUSTRALIAN OFFSHORE WIND 8 GW
At the end of 2021, wind power accounted for 11% of Australia’s installed capacity with 9 GW and 9% of its power generation with 24.5 TWh.
2023, February, 22, 11:15:00DANISH WIND CAPACITY + 9 GW
At the end of 2021, offshore wind represented 14% of Denmark’s installed capacity with 2.3 GW (4.7 GW for onshore wind).
