Wind energy association's first-quarter report offers reasons for optimism

Daily Kos | April 30, 2015 | Diary by Meteor Blades

The American Wind Energy Association has released its report for the first quarter of 2015, and it's quite encouraging. Indeed, for those of us who have followed renewable energy for several frustrating decades, it's fantastic. The nation's 48,000 wind turbines now provide enough electricity to power the equivalent of 16.7 million homes. And the report gives us hard statistics that make believable the Department of Energy's new Wind Vision study. That document says today’s wind-generated electricity could more than double to 10 percent by 2020, double again to 20 percent by 2030 and reach 35 percent by 2050.

Satellite maps show hidden geothermal energy sites around the world

Treehugger | April 20, 2015 | Post by Megan Treacy
