Rhode Island to Boost Renewable Energy to 1,000 Megawatts by 2020

Rhode Island is looking to increase its renewable energy to 1,000 megawatts by 2020, according to a strategic initiative by Governor Gina Raimondo. The "1000 by 20" strategic energy goal would expand renewable energy through offshore wind, solar and hydroelectric projects in order to create clean energy jobs, currently around 14,000 across the state, and boost the economy. »

Oregon Expands Renewable Projects Portfolio

Oregon recently expanded its renewable portfolio standards (RPS) to 20% by 2020, 27% by 2025 and 50% by 2040 in an effort to make the state rely more on renewable generation such as wind, solar and hydroelectric and to obtain less electrical generation from coal-fired power plants. Eligible renewable technologies for the state RPS are wind, solar, hydroelectric, ocean thermal, »

Duke Energy Carolinas: Slow Growth, More Solar Projects and Maybe Nuclear

In its annual 15-year integrated resource plan for the Carolinas, Duke Energy said it foresees slow electric load growth, a near-tripling of solar generation (to about 2,100 MW), and increased hydroelectric generation through a $200 million upgrade at its Bad Creek pumped storage hydro station. The utility predicted a 33% increase in nuclear energy by 2031, suggesting it is »

DOE Says Nation Can Boost Hydroelectric Generation by 50% by 2050

Hydroelectric generation is the largest type of renewable generation, totaling about 101,000 megawatts (MW) in the U.S. The Department of Energy's (DOE) Hydropower Vision report sees that capacity rising to 150,000 MW by 2050. Concerns about climate change and environmental protection have led the DOE to take a harder look at the potential to increase hydro generation. »
