Concentration of CO2 in the Atmosphere

July 20 Green Energy News

World:

  • The islands off the north and west of Scotland hold the UK’s best renewable resources, yet for more than a decade energy policies have prevented them from realising their full potential, due to long out-of-date doctrines from a previous era still in place today. [The Conversation]
  • Ukraine more than doubled power generation by renewable energy sources, including solar, wind and biofuel power plants, in the first half of the year. Renewable output was 581.4 GWh in January-June, compared with 266.2 GWh in the same period a year ago. [Platts]

US:

  • Renewable energy sources, including wind, solar, biomass, hydro and geothermal, accounted for 24.93% of all new US capacity installed in the first six months of this year for a total of 2,144 MW. This is more than coal or nuclear, but less than half of new natural gas capacity. [Renew Grid]
  • Entergy has launched a company-wide effort to cut costs and increase efficiencies. Company officials did not agree to an interview. But in a written statement, Entergy said: “We do expect workforce reductions to be one result of this initiative.” [Vermont Public Radio]
