Apple Investigating Built-In Solar Power Converters For iPhone, MacBook

October 31 -- Apple already has a number of solar power inventions to its name, but Thursday's filing is one of the first to propose a solution that can be made viable in the near term. As noted in the patent, titled "Power management systems for accepting adapter and solar power in electronic devices," Apple is not looking to invent a completely new solar power solution, as it has done in the past. Instead, the proposed method would take advantage of existing technologies and, more importantly, can be produced with currently available components.  >>View Article

The Coming Carbon Asset Bubble

October 30 -- After the credit crisis and Great Recession, it seemed ridiculous to have thought that investing in subprime mortgages was a good idea. As with most market "bubbles," the risk of giving 7.5 million mortgages to people who couldn't possibly pay them off was somehow invisible to many investors at the time. One reason such bubbles form is the tendency by many investors to confuse "risk" with "uncertainty." >>View Article

Ongoing Midwest Renewable Growth Hinges On Federal Policy

October 30 -- Renewable energy has been on a roll in the Midwest until recent months, and the whims of federal policy could slow things even further, according to a new report. The American Council on Renewable Energy is in the process of surveying the state of renewable energy in the U.S., region by region. Their latest report, titled Renewable Energy in the 50 States: Midwestern Region, looked at 12 states: Iowa, Minnesota, Illinois, Ohio, Nebraska, Kansas, Missouri, the Dakotas, Wisconsin, Michigan, Indiana. The survey catalogs state policies, recent renewable developments in the marketplace, and the employment and investment stimulated by renewables. >>View Article

Vt. Group Says Alternative Energy Will Create Jobs

October 30 -- Vermont could create thousands of jobs if it used locally produced biomass to heat about 20 percent of the state's homes and businesses using modern, energy efficient equipment, an official said Monday. "There is no reason why this state of Vermont should not be capturing as many opportunities from the great bulk of job opportunities from solar, to biomass, to wind, to geothermal, to efficiency, across the board," said Gabrielle Stebbins, the executive director of Renewable Energy Vermont, which is hosting a two-day alternative energy conference in South Burlington. >>View Article

Udall Fights For National Renewable Electricity Standard

October 30 -- Continuing their push for legislation to set a threshold for renewable electricity production, U.S. Senators Tom Udall (D-NM) and Mark Udall (D-CO) today introduced a bill to establish a national Renewable Electricity Standard (RES) that would create jobs, reduce pollution and save consumers money. >>View Article

Utility Plans To Build Largest Solar-Energy Project In Hawaii

October 29 -- Utility company Hawaiian Electric has put in a request to the state Public Utilities Commission to construct the largest solar-energy project in the state, the Associated Press reports. The project would encompass 15-megawatts of solar-generating capacity over 50 acres. SolarCity, a solar-power provider, would be contracted to install and construct the photovoltaic plant. "This is a unique opportunity that benefits our customers because it allows us to quickly develop more low-cost clean energy," said Ron Cox, Hawaiian Electric's vice president of power supply.  >>View Article

Wind Fuels Steady Rotation Of Power At TVA's Buffalo Mtn

October 29 -- The Buffalo Mountain Wind Farm in Anderson County stands as one of TVA's most visible power plant operations. The twirling turbines along the mountain top can be seen from dozens of miles away. The chance to see the turbines up close is uncommon as TVA restricts access to the wind farm. Monday morning TVA provided a tour of the site for a relatively rare first-hand look at the operation. >>View Article

Policies Make Midwest A Renewable Energy Hub

October 29 -- Largely thanks to renewable portfolio standards, the Midwest is a renewable energy hub and accounts for over a third of U.S. wind power capacity, according to a report from the American Council On Renewable Energy (ACORE). The Midwestern Region Report, the second in ACORE's four-part 6th annual Renewable Energy in the 50 States report, focuses on the clean energy sector in the 12 Midwest states: Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota and Wisconsin. >>View Article
