The increases in installed wind capacity are reflected in the reduced performance of renewable resources in aggregate, as measured by a composite capacity factor. The variable, intermittent nature of wind as an energy source leads to a low capacity factor relative to biomass, as wind is only available for generation subject to prevailing wind conditions. Renewable generation other than hydroelectric had a 37.3-percent capacity factor in 2008. This is a significant decrease from the 59.1 percent achieved in 2000, at which time the category was dominated by wood, wood-derived fuels, and other biomass, all of which are ...
Side-by-side comparison of FT synthetic fuel and conventional fuel. The synthetic fuel is visibly cleaner, being clear as water because of a near-absence of sulfur and aromatics. Synthetic fuel or synfuel is a liquid fuel obtained from coal , natural gas , or biomass . It may also refer to fuels derived from other solids such as plastics or rubber waste. It may also (less often) refer to gaseous fuels produced in a similar way. Common use of the term "synthetic fuel" is to describe fuels manufactured via Fischer Tropsch conversion , methanol to gasoline conversion , or direct coal liquefaction . Using commercially ...

Economics of Emission Reduction For Heavy Duty Trucks
Emissions from diesel engines are a significant air-quality issue, accounting for about one-third of the nation’s NOx emissions and one-quarter of the PM emissions from mobile sources. The U.S. EPA has responded with new, tougher emissions standards, the first tier of which took effect in 2004 (October of 2002 for engine builders affected by the consent decree). Even more stringent rules will take effect in 2007 and 2010, along with new diesel fuel standards requiring lower sulfur levels. With these changes, a review of technology options available to OEMs, fleet owners and operators is in order. First, let’s take a ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
DOE Selects Projects for up to $50 Million of Federal Funding to ...
U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Assistant Secretary for Electricity Delivery and Energy Reliability Kevin Kolevar today announced the Department's plans to invest up to $50 million over five years (Fiscal Years 2008 - 2012), subject to appropriations from Congress, in nine demonstration projects competitively selected to increase efficiency in the nation's electricity grid. The Renewable and Distributed Systems Integration (RDSI) technologies demonstrated in these projects aim to reduce peak load electricity demand by at least 15 percent at distribution feeders-the power lines delivering electricity to consumers-and ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Obamanomics is Exhausting
One way or the other, one of us is going to go down. President Obama, by insisting that he will go to the mat on his “green jobs” agenda, which is simply central planning with a coat of green paint, indicates he will risk his presidency on getting the cap-and-trade, gas tax and windmill mandate through the Senate (with a stranglehold on domestic energy production to boot), then through the House again on a conferenced bill. If he succeeds he will have doomed us; if he fails, politically the effort will have finally, fully exposed him for what he is: a Power Grabbing Statist whose economics are recklessly dogmatic ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

WikiAnswers - Differentiate between cost control and cost reduction
When overseeing the construction of a large building, the cost for various components of the building will vary. At the initial phase of construction (during the concept & budgeting phases), it may have been projected that the glass for all the windows would cost a total of $35,000. A large project like this can take time, though, so by the time the buidling is far enough along in the construction phase to need the glass, the cost for the glass may have risen to $42,000 (rising fuel prices, natural disasters, shortage of raw materials, etc). Therefore the cost will increase for this one component of the building, which impacts ...
How will "alternative fuel vehicles" affect the American economy ...
The American economy is very dependent on the automobile indutry. We usie vehicles for transportaion of both people and cargo, for recreation (racing, "road trips", country drives, etc.), as well as for many specialized applications, like ambulances and other emergency vehicles. With glass, rubber, metal, paint, textiles, fuels, and many other materials needed to make a modern car, I have heard some eatimate that as many as 27,000 people are needed to make one car (with jobs ranging from tapping rubber trees and mining ore to final assembly of the vehicle).
