This week, the first photovoltaic (PV) solar farm to connect directly to the UK’s National Grid transmission network started generating power. The project links Cero Generation and Enso Energy’s 49.9 megawatt (MW) Larks Green solar array to the National Grid’s 400 kilovolt Iron Acton substation near Bristol, England, a National Grid press release said. The […]
The state of New York has passed legislation in its latest budget that will require its public power provider to source 100% clean energy for electricity production by the end of this decade. The move boosts renewable energy and could give the public more control over their energy. The legislation allows New York Power Authority […]
Several European countries surrounding the North Sea are ready to commit to quadrupling their offshore wind power capacity by 2030 as they set out to turn the region into an enormous renewable energy hub. At the second North Sea Summit, held in the seaside town of Ostend, Belgium on Monday, France, the United Kingdom, the […]
What could be better than sitting outside, enjoying a burrito made with fresh ingredients on a spring day? A burrito served in biodegradable packaging, made by a restaurant powered exclusively by renewables that provides electric vehicle (EV) chargers to its customers — at least that’s what Chipotle Mexican Grill’s new “Responsible Restaurants” model is counting […]
