NREL Software Tool a Boon for Wind Industry

Wind energy is blowing away skeptics—it's so close to achieving cost parity with fossil fuels that just a little extra efficiency is all that is likely needed to push it into the mainstream and past the Energy Department's goal of 20% wind energy by 2030. That extra efficiency may be realized with the help of a software tool built by the Energy Department's National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL). It's called Simulator for Wind Farm Applications (SOWFA), and it can calculate how undulatin...

The EU depends on Russia for around 30 percent of its gas supplies, about half of which passes through Ukraine, Moscow's former Soviet satellite where pro-Russian separatist rebels have been fighting the Western-leaning government. Merkel stressed that for now it was in the mutual interests of oil and gas powe...

Wood Waste, Bagasse and Municipal Solid Waste to Remain Major Feedstocks

By mid-2014, wood waste was the most-used biopower feedstock, based on cumulative capacity. Around 32% of all biopower capacity used wood waste as their primary feedstock, as it is very widely available from a number of sources, such as timber businesses. Bagasse was the second most popular, with a 25.77% share, driven by sugarcane’s status as a major crop in India, Brazil and China, three of the largest biopower markets. Municipal Solid Waste (MSW), which is also a universally availabl...
