    The African Development Bank and South African state-owned electric utility Eskom signed a $365 million loan package that will help fund two historic renewable energy projects. The AfDB also pledged $498 million for Moroccan solar power projects. Africa, along with all nations around the world, stands at an energy crossroads. The AfDB loans will provide a substantive boost as South Africa and Morocco attempt to transition to clean energy economies that may serve as a model across the continent and beyond

    Countries building TLC - transparency, longevity and certainty - into strong climate change policy frameworks are gaining a competitive advantage over countries that aren't, according to a new study from DB Climate Change Advisors. China and Germany have emerged as global leaders, while the US continues to lag, and may even lose ground, at least at the federal level

    A hydrogen fuel cell-powered hybrid electric bus supplied by UTC Power for the Alameda-Contra Costa Transit District has set a performance record by operating for over 10,000 hours. The milestone is another step toward reducing the life cycle cost of hydrogen fuel cell-powered vehicles, which produce zero emissions and are more than 50% efficient in terms of converting energy to power.

    If successful, FuelCell Energy's system will separate and capture 90% or more of the CO2 emitted from a coal-fired power plant's flue stream. The CO2, along with hydrogen 'reformed' from natural gas, will be used to drive a fuel cell that produces clean electricity that will add to the plant's energy output. Nitrogen oxides (NOX), another potent greenhouse gas, will also be captured, but destroyed in the process. Emissions from the fuel cell system: water

    The third in a series, this post explains the workings and the principal aims of a DOE project in which Connecticut's FuelCell Energy will use its Direct FuelCell technology to capture 90% of a coal-fired power plant's CO2 emissions at a 35% or less increased in the cost of electricity
