Renewable Energy World is one of the leading publishers of renewable energy news and information on solar energy, wind energy, hydro-power, geothermal energy, bio-energy and more. Join this LinkedIn group to network with industry professionals, educators and others interested in renewable energies
REN21’s Renewables Global Status Report (GSR) provides a comprehensive and current overview of the renewable energy market, industry, investment and policy developments worldwide to enable policymakers, industry, investors and civil society to make informed decisions. In addition to the report, gain access to infographics, presentations and previous reports and information.
Researchers have created an interactive web tool to estimate the amount of energy that could be generated by wind or solar farms any where in the world. This tool, called Renewables.ninja, makes scientific-quality weather and energy data available to a wide community in order to make the task of predicting renewable output easier for both academics and industry.
This informational resource guides users through the process of assessing viability of potential sites for suitability for installation of solar photovoltaics or wind and assists in ascertaining whether potential barriers exist. The types of sites covered are: potentially contaminated sites, landfill, underutilized land and rooftops.
This guide analyzes challenges and provides recommendations for developing quality infrastructure for small wind turbines. It also utilizes examples from different countries to describe development and implementation of infrastructure specific to small wind turbines.
The Sustainable Energy Marketplace is a virtual platform for project developers, financiers, and service/technology suppliers to work together to realize projects and bring renewable energy to developing countries.
The Quadrennial Energy Review (QER) enables the Federal Government to translate policy goals into a set of analytically based, integrated actions that include executive actions, legislative proposals, and budget and resource requirements for proposed investments, over a multi-year planning horizon.
The report includes the following:
– An integrated view of, and recommendations for, Federal energy policy in the context of economic, environmental, occupational, security, and health and safety priorities
– A review of the adequacy of existing executive and legislative actions and recommendations for additional executive and legislative actions, as appropriate.
-An assessment of and recommendations for priorities for research, development, and demonstration programs to support key energy innovation goals.
– Identification of analytical tools and data needed to support further policy development and implementation.
In this short video, we learn how a city in the United States runs entirely on renewable energy sources. In 2014 Burlington, Vermont became the first city in the U.S. to run on 100% Renewable Energy. Their secret to success will fuel discussion topics and extracurricular activities in your classroom.
Wind, solar and other renewable energy sources now make up just about 10% of the U.S.’ electricity supply, but transitioning to 100% clean energy is both necessary and feasible, according to a new report from Environment America and Frontier Group. This report discusses how a shift to 100 percent renewable energy can limit the impacts of global warming, improve human health and put the economy on a sound foundation.
This short but powerful video outlines an extremely comprehensive, up-to-date assessment of climate change: the IPCC’s Fifth Assessment and Synthesis Report. The video gives an overview of this document, written and explained in such terms that policy makers can better understand and accept the science provided within the report to effectively deal with the world’s changing climate, which is also a valuable classroom tool.
