Systemic musings - 3 views

    Australia's first community wind farm.
    The parameters for this project are interesting. The biggest challenge for these cooperatives is to scale up to finance larger projects. The fact that this group raised almost 10 M$ is encouraging.

Chicago Utility to Test Distributed Solar | Cooler Planet News - 0 views

  • ComEd, the electric service provider arm of Exelon Corporation (which delivers electricity to about 70 percent of northern Illinois), is planning a distributed solar array that will involve outfitting 100 Chicago-area homes with solar photovoltaic panels, and retrofitting at least 50 of those with “smart” meters, net metering, battery backup and a grid-tied status that enables them to send unused electricity from their solar energy systems back to the grid.

    The aim, according to ComEd, is to convert each home into a “mini-utility” in an attempt to prove that individual homes can act as power generators, buying and selling electricity in real-time, according to ComEd Environmental and Marketing VP, Val Jensen.

In Denmark and Germany-world leaders in wind energy development-many commercial-scale wind turbines are installed as single units or in small clusters distributed across the countryside, or scattered around and sometimes within urban agglomerations.

Gulf's car-free city could set green design standard - 0 views

  • The latest effort comes not in some green hub like Portland, Oregon, but in the Persian Gulf, fuelled as much by oil wealth—and the need to find postpetroleum business models—as environmental zeal. Groundbreaking is scheduled for Saturday for Masdar City, a nearly self-contained mini-municipality designed for up to 50,000 people rising from the desert next to Abu Dhabi’s international airport and intended as a hub for academic and corporate research on nonpolluting energy technologies.
    There are a few schemes which  are now experimenting with community based post oil  business models. This model appears to  be designed for 50,000 people.  With this type of experiment , new methods might be learnt for future energy sustainability and existing energy solutions tested.
