The Dirty Side of China's Green Industry

The Dirty Side of China's Green IndustryThe European Union launched an investigation against the Chinese companies on Thursday, 6 September 2012 into alleged dumping of low-grade solar panels into the European markets. The probe came after European manufacturers claimed that firms in Beijing have exported billions of pounds of solar panels and solar power equipments below their market value.


Ashland Gets Green Money from State Energy Officials

Ashland Gets Green Money from State Energy OfficialsThe Commissioner of Department of Energy Resources Mark Sylvia presented about $330,000 in grants for the funding of clean energy projects in the towns of Ashland and Auburn. The town of Ashland got more than $150,000 as part of award money from the state energy officials in order to accomplish energy projects in the town. Both Ashland and Auburn are the leaders in bringing green energy revolution into Massachusetts and are committed towards making a healthy green environment, cutting the excessive use of energy and creating job opportunities. Richard K. Sullivan, secretary of Energy and Environmental Affairs announced the awards and said the money is for the state's green communities.


Mexico To Seek Alternative Energy

Mexico-to-alternativeThe country, Mexico has wind in abundance and now it is that they have determined to try hitting this precious renewable source in order to restrict their dependability on petroleum, on which they are reliable from decades. Actually the quest of sustainable energy source became more severe when the country’s oil production dropped down by 9.2 percent in 2008.

At the windswept inauguration ceremony, Mexico’s President Felipe de Jesus Calderon Hinojosa said that, “If we don’t do something about this problem of climate change it probably could become; I am sure it already is; one of the biggest threats to humanity.”


Europe’s Green Energy ‘Supergrid’

Connecting-EuropeThere are always controversies persisting, regarding promotion of wind and solar energies as there is a question popping out -what happens when the wind stops blowing or sun stops shining? As an answer to this query, northern Europe plans for a huge electricity grid offered to unite variety of renewable energy sources. They have infact taken a step onward in January after the approval to nine countries that are intending to work together on the project.

The ‘supergrid’ with the help of thousands of miles of high-tech undersea cables will create a bond between farms on blustery British coasts and Belgian tidal power, which is the huge hydroelectric probable of Norway fjords and Germany's gigantic solar collections.


UK To Help Renewable Heat

UKThe Department for Energy and Climate Change stated that the scheme for renewable heat would initiate in April 2011.The entire program, which is proposed by Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change Ed Miliband Britons would be restricted at two percent of renewable energy supply.

Installation of low carbon electricity technologies like solar photovoltaic (pv) panels and wind turbines done by the householders and group of people, will be paid for the electricity they engender no matter if they even use for themselves. They will also get further payment for the electricity they supply into the grid.
