  • Global Trends in Renewable Energy Investment 2013: Key Findings

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:
    Objective:

    For the first time in several years, 2012 saw a decline, not a new record, for global investment in renewable energy. As last year’s Global Trends report warned, dollar investment worldwide was facing a down-draft from uncertainty over support policies in Europe and the US and – more positively – from sharp falls in technology costs.

  • Private investment in wind power in Colombia

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:
    Objective:

    This report examines the feasibility of private investment in wind power in Colombia within the current regulatory framework. It focuses especially on the regulatory methodology for estimating the ‘firm energy’ that wind power plants are capable of providing in Colombia to back up hydro generation during extended periods of drought (El Niño weather events). The report concludes that the current methodology probably underestimates wind’s firm energy contribution by a substantial amount. This in turn means that wind power stations receive a lower firm energy payment than they should.

  • Nanotechnology Breakthrough Produces Clean Electricity Day and Night

    Type: 
    Product

    Researchers announce a breakthrough in nanotechnology that produces clean high voltage electricity by harvesting the electric charge of naturally occurring airborne ions day and night. Originally designed as a power source to produce electricity day and night for future Mars missions Ion Harvesting Technology has been demonstrated to also work on Earth generating clean electricity without pollution or harm to humans or animals. Electricity is always present in the atmosphere of Earth and Mars in the form of naturally occurring electrically charged ions.
