Wind Drives Growing Use of Batteries

2010-07-28T07:59:39+00:00

Increased wind energy development is resulting in new efforts to  develop better storage of electrical energy.  Delivery of electricity from wind energy generation is sometimes difficult to schedule; reliable storage can smooth out how wind energy integrates with electric utility grids.  Some companies even see opportunities to profit through arbitrage, by buying electricity from wind [...]

Patterson: Future is in green energy

2010-04-27T09:04:58+00:00

Nearly four years ago, the Texas General Land Office signed the nation's first ever lease for offshore wind power. Since then, major hurricanes and economic storms have blown away plans to have turbines up and running by now. But that doesn't mean we're not earning real money. After all, that's what my drive to develop [...]
