Renewable Energy Growing Faster Than Expected

By Chris Tomlinson Worries that wind and solar power would destabilize power grids unproven The International Energy Agency says the world will generate much more renewable energy than previously expected in the next five years, disproving worries that relying more on wind and solar power would destabilize electricity grids. About 28 percent of the world’s […]

Wind Cheapest Power Source in Argentina Renewable Auction

By Vanessa Dezem and Silvia Martinez Wind was the cheapest source of energy in Argentina’s first power auction after the country implemented reforms designed to transform its fossil fuel-dependent grid. The minimum price for wind power reached $49.10/MWh in the auction, Sebastian Kind, undersecretary for renewable energy, told reporters in Buenos Aires Friday. Solar power […]
