Wyoming wind is powerful but not when it isn't blowing. And that's the problem with electricity generated by wind: the supply isn't reliable. One solution? Storage. Deep underground in Utah salt caves. Inside Energy's Leigh Paterson reports.
The results are in on the state-by-state energy efficiency ranking, and some of Inside Energy's focus states are at the bottom of the class. The American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy released its annual State Energy Efficiency Scorecard last week, grading states for their policies and efforts toward energy efficiency.
If fossil fuels continue to be the dominant fuel source around the world, then carbon capture technologies will need to be developed to reduce harmful carbon emissions. Many Chinese students have come to this country to learn the process.
It's hard to be separated from the people you love--especially when it's for work.
With wind projects planned from Wyoming to Iowa to Oregon, there’s growing demand for skilled technicians to install and repair the wind turbines. But a unique skill set is required -- the fearlessness of a pro rock climber along with the know-how of a skilled mechanic.
