  • [New] The owner of the Drax power plant in North Yorkshire faces a criminal prosecution hearing after allegations that dust from wood pellets used to generate electricity could pose a risk to its employees' health. The Guardian
  • Chile is one of just two countries in the world that is likely to offer opportunities in 2021 for developers of concentrated solar power (CSP) projects that use the sun's heat to spin turbines that generate electricity, rather than using sunlight to generate electrons. Greentech Media
  • A recent report by the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) showed almost two-thirds of wind and solar projects built around the world last year will be able to generate electricity more cheaply than the world's cheapest new fossil fuel plants. Evening Standard
  • Pledges to make more electric vehicles in the future will do little to reduce GHG emissions until and unless the way we generate electricity in the U.S. undergoes expensive and prolonged changes. ethanolproducer
  • The O2 turbine consists of two submerged blades with a 20-meter diameter attached to a turbine that will move with the shifting currents of Orkney's coast to generate electricity. IFLScience
  • As well as generating electricity, HTGRs will generate low-carbon hydrogen and produce extremely high temperatures to power district heating networks by the 2040s. The Engineer
  • Policymakers around the world, including the United States, have declared that burning wood to generate electricity is not a climate threat, but a green power solution. IER
  • The recent rally in natural gas prices seems durable and could provide some tailwinds for Powder River Basin and Illinois Basin producers that mine coal used to generate electricity. S&P Global Platts
  • Solar power is now the cheapest means of generating electricity, which is why researchers expect it to make a global breakthrough as the primary source of energy in the future. EcoWatch
  • Alberta's world-class wind resources led to the development of projects that will generate electricity at record-low costs. Pembina Institute
  • Equinor plans to produce clean-burning blue hydrogen to supply the Keadby gas power plant in Lincolnshire, owned by energy company SSE, making it the world's first full-scale power plant to burn pure hydrogen to generate electricity. The Guardian
  • Xcel plans to stop generating electricity by burning coal by 2030, replace its coal-fired Sherco plant in Becker with a natural gas plant and invest in more wind and solar energy. MPR News
  • Renewable energy is increasingly the cheapest option to generate electricity in most parts of the world, and the cost declines are expected to continue. DeSmog
  • This month, Hanwha and Korea Gas Corp. will launch a feasibility study in Pyeongchang, Gangwon Province that explores generating electricity with a wind turbine to produce green hydrogen. the korea herald
  • Aside from generating electricity, the new wind turbines could help kickstart the green hydrogen and green ammonia industries in Louisiana. CleanTechnica
  • Washington University researchers have developed a filter that treats wastewater and also generates electricity - an advance that could reshape energy use at treatment plants. Tech Xplore
  • The Bloom Energy Server, which will not be part of the INL test, uses the hydrogen produced by an electrolyzer to generate electricity. S&P Global Platts
  • In early 2021, the German energy company RWE launched a $1.4 billion compensation claim against the Netherlands-over a decision to phase out the use of coal to generate electricity by 2030. Open Society Foundations
  • Japan will raise its share of renewable, hydro and nuclear power, which do not rely on fossil fuels for generating electricity, to more than 50% of total production by 2030. The Japan Times
  • As well as creating new commercial opportunities for U.S. companies, perovskites could become a relatively inexpensive way for solar power to challenge fossil fuels for generating electricity. NBC News
