Index / Renewable Energy (Other Energy Resources)

Wind and solar currently provide less than 1 percent of the world's primary energy, and will not replace fossil fuels, which provide 82 percent, over the next 20 years. In fact, while companies like BP and Shell are cutting back on commercial projects in wind and solar, Big Oil is taking a closer look at how they might be used to increase efficiency internally, or to free up increasingly profitable fossil fuels, like natural gas, for commercial sale. For example, Valero is building windmills to power refineries, and Chevron is using solar power to make steam to extract tough-to-reach oil. When... More →

Dr. Conca reports that last week, twenty-one prominent scientists issued a sharp critique to one of their own scientists. Mark Jacobson of Stanford said America could easily become 100% renewable by mid-century, but refused to acknowledge sound scientific principles in his research and address major errors pointed out by the scientific community. And then he played politics.

The critique is so unusual that the group of scientists only decided to issue it when Jacobson refused to correct obvious scientific errors even as he began to seriously influence public policy and political act... More →

Houston is the fourth largest city in the nation, with an estimated population of 2.23 million as of January 1, 2007. Houston's population is among the youngest and most diverse in the U.S., with more than ninety spoken languages. The City is expected to experience continued growth through 2010. At the current rate, the City of Houston's population will reach 2.32 million by 2010. Houston's economy has a broad industrial base in the energy, aeronautics, and technology industries, and only New York City is home to more Fortune 500 headquarters. The Port of Houston ranks first in the U.S. in int... More →

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) is the lead federal agency for applied research and development (R an D) of cutting edge hydrogen and fuel cell technologies. DOE supports R and D that makes it cheaper and easier to produce, deliver, and store hydrogen, while also working to lower the costs of fuel cells and improve their durability and performance. Today, critical components such as membrane electrode assemblies are more reliable, while using one-fifth the platinum of earlier versions. DOE efforts have reduced high-volume manufacturing costs for automotive fuel cells by more than 35 per c... More →

The U.S. Department of Agriculture asked Booz Allen Hamilton (BAH) to identify the obstacles to rapid expansion of the biofuels industry and actions to overcome those barriers. The target is U.S. production and use of 60 billion gallons per year (BGY) of biofuels by 2025. This would meet 17 percent of the projected 250 BGY United States transportation fuel demand for 2025.

Expanded domestic biofuels production and use will have several important benefits, including: 1) lessen our dependence on foreign oil; 2) improve the environment; 3) reduce U.S. foreign trade deficits; 4) enhance... More →

The need for cleaner air and a sustainable supply of electricity represent crucial, interconnected challenges facing Texas today. High rates of electricity consumption and reliance on fossil fuel generation have contributed to unhealthful levels of air pollution and high electricity costs for ratepayers. This report shows that sensible policies and technologies for energy efficiency and renewable energy can help clean the air while ensuring sufficient and affordable electricity supply in Texas for decades to come....

Chapter 9 - Overview: Renewable Energy

The oil price shocks of the 1970s and 1980s spurred a national movement to develop other kinds of energy and decrease our dependence on petroleum. In this period, Texas oil and gas production peaked and the industry began to play a diminishing yet still important role in the state's economy. As energy prices fell, however, interest in renewable energy sources waned. Recent events, including dramatically higher oil prices and environmental concerns, again have led to heightened interest in renewable sources of energy, such as solar and wind ener... More →

Conflicting reports in the media and common misperceptions exist about water use for ethanol production. University of Illinois researchers took a look at water used to grow corn and for ethanol production. Water is an important resource. It is a consideration and part of the permitting process when ethanol plants are built. A typical ethanol plant capable of producing 40 million gallons of ethanol per year, could use up to 330,000 gallons of water per day or 120 million gallons of water per year. This is equivalent to water used by a town of 5,000 people or a standard-sized golf course. The a... More →
