This week House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp (R-MI) announced his version of draft legislation to simplify the U.S. tax code, dubbed the "Tax Reform Act of 2014," which has some decidedly negative implications for renewable energy -- that is, if any of it makes it through Congressional compromise.
- Solar-Induced Hybrid Fuel Cell Produces Electricity Directly from Biomass
Although low temperature fuel cells powered by methanol or hydrogen have been well studied, existing low temperature fuel cell technologies cannot directly use biomass as a fuel because of the lack of an effective catalyst system for polymeric materials.
- US State of the Union 2014: A Back Seat for Renewable Energy
Broader domestic social issues and an international policy that moves away from "a permanent war footing" took center stage in President Obama's State of the Union address (SOTUS) last night. Domestic energy policies, including renewable energy, largely took a back seat to the President's bigger talking points: hiking the minimum wage for federal contractors, urging final immigration reforms, strong pushes in employment and job-training, education, retirement savings, and healthcare.

- Oregon Researchers Shed New Light on Solar Water-splitting Process
With the help of a new method called "dual-electrode photoelectrochemistry," University of Oregon scientists in the U.S. have provided new insight into how solar water-splitting cells work. An important and overlooked parameter, they report, is the ion-permeability of electrocatalysts used in water-splitting devices.
- Renewable Energy Regulation: Follow the Leader
The success of the renewable energy market is partly illustrated by the rapidly increasing number of small renewable energy systems connecting directly to the distribution grid. For this changing market to continue to thrive, we must ensure that these systems can access the grid in a safe, efficient and cost-effective manner. And this means acknow
