Drilling technically complex, high-temperature and high-pressure wells is a core strength of the oil and gas industry. Let’s use all of that learning and expertise to drill for heat — tapping a vast CO2-free, clean energy source. The post New initiative positions Texas as geothermal energy leader appeared first on Renewable Energy World. […]
Deep-water offshore wind installations located in ocean depths greater than 60 meters could supply more than 1,200 gigawatts of energy-generating capacity to the electric grid. But despite this resource potential, relatively high capital expenditures for deep-water wind installations challenge offshore wind’s economic viability. The National Renewable Energy […]
