Renewable Energy to Increase 49%! More Market Research For Renewable Energy Jobs and Forecast Reports Renewable Energy to Increase 49%
June 11, 2011 James Sclater, the leading provider of global market intelligence products and services, announced June 8, 2011 the addition of the new report “Renewable Energy: Global Industry Guide” to their collection of Energy market reports.

“Renewable Energy: Global Industry Guide” is an essential resource for top-level data and analysis covering the Renewable Energy industry. It includes detailed data on market size and segmentation, textual analysis of the key trends and competitive landscape, and profiles of the leading renewable energy companies. This report provides expert analysis on a global, regional and country basis.

The renewable energy market consists of the consumption of electricity generated via Geothermal, Solar, Wind and Hydroelectric means, as well as through wood and waste combustion. Data are reported as net consumption as opposed to gross consumption. Net consumption excludes the energy consumed by the generating units. The volume of the market is calculated as the volume of electricity consumed (in billions of kilowatt hours, kWh), and the market value has been calculated according to average annual renewable electricity prices. Any currency conversions used in the creation of this report have been calculated using constant 2010 annual average exchange rates.

According to

■The global renewable energy market grew by 6.8% in 2010 to reach a value of $322.5 billion.
■In 2015, the global renewable energy market is forecast to have a value of $479.9 billion, an increase of 48.8% since 2010.
■The global renewable energy market grew by 3.7% in 2010 to reach a volume of 3,340.4 billion kWh.
■In 2015, the global renewable energy market is forecast to have a volume of 4,203.6 billion kWh, an increase of 25.8% since 2010.

Weekend Getaway In Aspen

The Off Season in Aspen is Hard To Beat

When the weather starts to warm up and Summer is right around the corner, it's time to head to the Mountains again for some fun. For captivating views and the Lodging prices that get's time to head to Aspen again . This time was different, I spent a Fantastic weekend with my Fiance in Aspen and enjoyed every minute of the off season here. We stayed at the The Innsbruck Inn, a sweet place that not only is right in town but also set us up with some local trails to hike with no one around.

Yes I love to fish but this weekend had other intentions and one that still reasonates from all the fun we had, only a few moments fishing but with all the trips I've had this Spring, it wasn't that big of a deal not to fish.

I fished the Frying Pan River for a bit but few hatches suprisingly. (middle pic)Having a little wine on top of Sunnyside Mtn. Closing down the Bar at the Hotel Jerome "J-bar" no better place to be, especially when you have Ditty a fellow Georgia Bulldog serving up some strong liquor drinks all night! (below-Maroon Bells Fall 2002)


Too bad the Maroon Bells road was closed, too much snow apparently. They had 8" of snow right before we got there but fortunately we had nice weather with even 75' one day. If you do want to make the trek to Maroon Bells, it's 7 miles in and 7 miles out...that makes for one long day! Can't wait to get back there again.

If you can schedule it right and save a few pennies, try and make it to the Aspen Food & Wine about a wild weekend that is each year!

California's Energy Future

California's Energy Future: Aggressive Efficiency and Electrification Needed to Cut Emissions
ScienceDaily (May 24, 2011) Story Link

In the next 40 years, California's population is expected to surge from 37 million to 55 million and the demand for energy is expected to double. Given those daunting numbers, can California really reduce its greenhouse gas emissions to 80 percent below 1990 levels by 2050, as required by an executive order? Scientists from Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory who co-wrote a new report on California's energy future are optimistic that the target can be achieved, though not without bold policy and behavioral changes as well as some scientific innovation.

Colorado Town Considers "How Much Renewable Energy is Feasible" - 80% by 2025?

John Farrell Article Link

A great story of a city looking to - literally - take ownership of its energy future:
The Colorado Renewable Energy Standard, as amended last year by the state Legislature, requires Xcel Energy to get 30 percent of its electricity from renewable sources by 2020.

...Boulder leaders -- who let the city's 20-year franchise agreement with Xcel Energy lapse at the end of 2010 -- are now considering whether they can get an energy mix for their residents with a larger percentage of renewable energy than what Xcel is offering.
