DTE Energy: Changes at Trenton plant are beginning of reducing coal dependency - thenewsherald.com

Two certificate courses will be offered in solar technology and an associate's degree in avionics will also be available. Solar courses will teach students how to install and maintain two types of solar technology. The avionics program will teach students about electronic systems on an aircraft. These two fields are growing and TCL says the programs will help students find jobs after school. Enrollment is currently open, for more information click here . Copyright 2014 WTOC .

Taiwan Solar Stocks Fall After U.S. Expands Trade Penalties - Bloomberg

(TSL) and Suntech Power Holdings Co. (STPFQ) in 2012. SolarWorld officials said that since the decision, Chinas manufacturers have exploited a loophole by assembling part of the product in Taiwan to avoid penalty tariffs. Attorneys for Chinese and Taiwanese producers have said SolarWorld is seeking to exclude from the U.S. market most imports of solar products that include crystalline silicon. U.S. Review During the initial U.S. review, SolarWorlds U.S. affiliates were a target of cyber-espionage by the Chinese military, the U.S. Justice Department said in charges unsealed May 19. The company has asked the Commerce Department to investigate.

First Solar, XSOL Establish Supply Agreement in Japan - Yahoo Finance

The question at hand for Trenton city officials is whether their power plant will be one of those that will transition to natural gas. Because of the shutdown of the two units, it worries me, Mayor Kyle Stack said, but Im hoping theyll look to utilize the (remaining) unit. Stack said DTE Energy has been a very good partner to the local community and has been very informative of changes, and it would be a sad day should the company decide to leave Trenton. Im always worried when someone downsizes because the alternative could be that they will close, Stack said. No mayor wants any of their big business to leave. Continued... Stack pointed to McLouth Steel and Riverside Osteopathic Hospital as comparative reasons for concern. The downtown Trenton structures have been vacant for a handful of years, although a development is pending for the hospital. Berris said DTE Energy has not decided which coal plants will transition to natural gas. This is not something that can happen too quickly, she said. It takes time to make these changes. Berris said DTE is looking to make the transition in a way that keeps rates affordable for our customers and continues to provide reliable safe service. Clean Energy Now, a coalition for eliminating coal dependence in Michigan, applauded DTE Energys plan. This is the right move for DTE and area communities as this announcement opens the doors to move toward less expensive and cleaner forms of energy, said Eric Keller, campaigns director for Clean Water Action.

Solar Fuels: How Close, How Real?

Anumakonda Jagadeesh The companysfirst process is for the production of ethylene glycol (MEG), with a $27 billion annual market. In measuring progress, the company notes that Results consistent with cost-advantaged production have been validated at lab scale for key parts of our process. Ultimately, the company has opportunities in propylene, isopropanol, methyl-methacrylate and acetic acid. So, heres a company that doesnt use biology, doesnt use sunlight, and doesnt use an intervening biomass. Well might you ask, what has this anything to do with a solar fuel? Back to Solar Fuels So, lets focus for a moment back on solar fuels. Is there anything in this class of technologies that might prove out the potential of a new way of storing solar energy, as liquid fuel? You see, thats been perhaps the biggest challenge of solar technology to date. Production gets better and cheaper all the time, but how do you store it and, in real-time, how do you deal with the intermittent nature of key renewable energy technologies? After all, electro-chemical batteries, that store solar energy in electron form well, theyre getting better but not nearly fast enough to match the interest in solar, or match the rate of improvement in solar PV technology.
