The winds are blowing fair for the U.S. wind-power industry, making it one of the fastest-growing sources of energy in this country.
Even as a Wisconsin electrical utility used a yearly report to lay out plans for producing more energy with natural gas and various renewable sources, it was saying its total generating capacity would be increasing by relatively little.
The U.S. Senate overwhelmingly approved a far-reaching energy bill Wednesday that reflects significant changes in U.S. oil and natural gas production over the past decade and boosts alternative energy sources such as wind and solar power.
South Dakota's Public Utilities Commission has ruled against an alternative energy producer seeking to force rural electric cooperatives to buy the wind power it plans to generate
Under pressure from the wind-power industry, the Obama administration said Friday it will allow companies to kill or injure eagles without the fear of prosecution for as long as three decades.
Washington — The Obama administration will allow companies to seek authorization to kill and harm bald and golden eagles for as much as 30 years without penalty in an effort to balance some of the environmental trade-offs of green energy.
Renewable energy is growing fast around the world and will edge out natural gas as the second biggest source of electricity, after coal, by 2016, according to a five-year outlook published Wednesday by the International Energy Agency.
When GOP leaders gathered in Tampa, Fla., this week for the Republican National Convention, they endorsed a 62-page platform that used a crucial word just once.
The wind power debate is muddled enough without a couple of ill-advised bills that have been introduced into the Wisconsin Legislature.
