- PJM Grid Operators: We Can Handle 30 Percent Renewable Energy Integration, An...
Experts believe that the PJM Interconnection system, which encompasses all or parts of Delaware, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Maryland, Michigan, New Jersey, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Virginia, West Virginia and the District of Columbia, can handle up to 30 percent of its energy from wind and solar without "any significant reliability issues," assuming transmission upgrades and additional regulation reserves ? and at the same time reducing costs and reliance on its costlier conventional generation fleet.
- Another Renewables-Limiting Tax Reform Proposal Launches Into Statis
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.

- Twelve Hydrogen And Fuel Cell Stocks
While many people think first about hydrogen when they think of fuel cells, fuel cells are not limited to hydrogen. They are a set of related technologies, many of which can generate electricity from a number of hydrocarbon fuels rather than hydrogen.
- Japan Eyes Smart Meters, Fuel Cells to Tackle Climate Change
Japan plans smart meters in every residence and factory by the early 2020s and 5.3 million fuel cells in homes by 2030 to tackle climate change, according to a report to be submitted to the United Nations.
- Hydrogen Stocks More than Double In 2013: Why the Pros Missed the Ride
If you hadn?t noticed that hydrogen stocks are up an average of 131 percent so far this year, you?re not alone. Both hydrogen fuel cell stocks and hydrogen fuel systems stocks are up strongly.

- Why UK Cleantech Start-ups Are Looking to Colorado
As the Clean and Cool mission to Colorado comes to a close it?s interesting to reflect on what we are trying to achieve here and what we have learnt. The Technology Strategy Board funds entrepreneur missions like this as part of its support for small businesses in the U.K. ? companies we consider the growth engine of the U.K. economy. While we also
- 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.
