Coke company is developing coal-fired power plant in Wyoming

Progress Energy, the company behind the largest coal-burning power plant on the West Coast, has received a $5.8 million grant from the U.S. Department of Energy to help it build a coal-powered plant in a remote area of Wyoming.

The project is part of a larger initiative to boost U.M.S., a leading U.N. aid agency, to develop renewable energy.

The U.K.-based firm has received support from the DOE since the early 2000s, when it was formed as an aid agency to promote renewable energy projects.

In 2015, Progress Energy received $3.9 million in aid to build its $200 million Eureka power plant, which generates energy from steam and steam condensate and uses electricity from renewable sources.

The company has also been awarded funding to build a $500 million plant in the Umatilla Basin in Nevada.

As the company continues to invest in its coal-based power plants, progress has been made in harnessing renewable energy to power homes, businesses and other buildings.

In 2014, Progress began building a 500-megawatt solar thermal plant in South Dakota.

In 2018, Progress also partnered with the Department of Defense to build an 830-megawatts (MW) solar plant in southern California, and in 2020, the utility announced it had signed a $2.9 billion contract with an investor group to build and operate a 200-megavolt solar plant at its power plant near San Diego.

Mega Energy Drink’s sales hit record highs

The world’s biggest retailer of energy drinks is reporting record sales in its second quarter after the launch of the latest product line.

The energy drink giant Monster Energy Drink has been hitting sales records for the past four quarters, with sales at its New York City and Florida stores up over 80 per cent this year, the company said in a statement on Thursday.

Monster Energy Drink CEO David Smith told investors that he hoped sales would continue to grow and said the new products would appeal to consumers seeking a bit of energy boost.

The company has launched the new Energy Boost line of drinks with its latest product, which will cost $2.49 a bottle, and a new energy drink called Mega Energy Boost, which is priced at $2 per 10ml.

The new products are being introduced in the US and the UK.

The new products will be available in the second half of this year.

Monster says its sales grew by 55 per cent to $5.6bn ($4.1bn in the UK).

The company is now on track to exceed the $1bn sales target it set for 2017, which it hopes to reach in 2021.

Monster said that the energy drink sales increase was driven by consumers choosing energy drinks as their main energy drink choice.

It said that energy drinks accounted for about 45 per cent of the overall energy drink market in the first half of 2018.

Which plants are producing the most solar energy in Queensland?

PIC: Steve Langer, the Queensland Government’s chief energy adviser, told the ABC the state was on track to meet its target of producing 25 per cent of its energy from renewables by 2035.

“It’s been a challenging period, but I think the Queensland government is on track,” he said.

“The last few months have seen a huge surge in investment from the private sector, including the construction of the largest solar farm in Queensland history, which is a project in the Kimberley.”

The Government’s target for Queensland is to reach 30 per cent renewable energy by 2020.

It is also aiming to increase the amount of electricity produced from renewable sources to 50 per cent by 2040.

PIC source ABC News (Queensland) title Power companies are struggling to meet targets, says the Queensland Energy Union source ABC (Queenland) headline Queensland’s power companies are fighting to meet their 2020 renewable energy targets, with Queensland Energy Workers Union President Stephen Langer warning the industry is facing a “political and economic crisis”.

“The big players in the electricity sector are all fighting to keep their renewable energy target and we know they’re trying to keep the political pressure up,” Mr Langer said.

He said there was an “unacceptable” lack of transparency from the state’s power operators and it was “unprecedented” for a state to “put up a target like this and be completely ignored”.

Mr Langers union has been campaigning for the state to be allowed to meet the target, which it says is essential to achieve a “clean energy future”.

The energy union said its members had received more than 50,000 emails and letters from members about the target and its implementation.

“There is a political and economic breakdown of the electricity industry in Queensland,” Mr Picken said.

New Zealand’s solar energy startup to open in China, expand its operations

New Zealanders have long dreamed of using their vast sunshine for energy.

But they may have a new way to get it: geothermal energy.

In November last year, the New Zealand Government announced a $6.8 million loan guarantee for the venture to explore geothermal resources in northern New Zealand.

The loan was to be used for research and development and to establish a geothermal power station in the country’s capital city of Auckland.

But this week the Government announced that its plans to build a geyser facility on the Gisborne coast have been delayed indefinitely.

A spokesperson for the Department of Conservation told Newshub the project would not go ahead until the country was prepared to secure a loan from the Chinese government, but the announcement has led some to question whether the loan guarantee is just a smokescreen for a broader investment in geothermal projects.

“New Zealanders are passionate about solar energy, but there is a lot of scepticism about it.

A lot of people have said, ‘Oh, I’m going to take a trip to China, and there are so many opportunities’,” said Simon O’Malley, a geology lecturer at Otago University.”

We have to make sure that we get the funding to do this, and we have to do it in a sustainable way.”

Geothermal energy has been used for years in China and it is estimated that one million tonnes of the mineral rock are produced each year, with China being the world’s biggest producer.

O’Malley said the Government had been slow to put resources into geothermal development because the costs were prohibitive.

“There are a lot more expensive things to invest in than building a geode, and I think they need to be thinking about that in their investment strategy,” he said.

Geothermal electricity can produce more electricity than conventional electricity, and can be produced from an abundance of natural gas, but it is only now that geothermal is being considered as a viable energy source in New Zealand that it is being widely deployed.

In April last year the Government issued a plan for the development of a geoviewer, a device that would allow geologists to measure and record the geothermal heat generated by the land.

It is estimated to generate up to 10 times more electricity that a conventional geothermal plant.

“Geothermal power is just another way to bring our electricity back from the grid to the grid,” said O’Neill.

“It’s something that we can actually get at.

There are huge benefits in the energy mix.”
