NREL Releases Comprehensive Databases of Local Ordinances for Siting Wind and Solar Projects

State and local zoning laws and ordinances influence how and where wind and solar energy projects can be sited and deployed—which can have a measurable impact on U.S. renewable energy resource potential. For example, previous National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) research found that total U.S. wind energy technical potential is seven times greater under the least restrictive siting regimes as compared to the most restrictive siting regimes.

El relato de la eficiencia energética en España: de la corbata a un decreto escoba

Después del desastre nuclear de Fukushima en 2011 y cuando el gobierno de Japón eliminó la corbata para ahorrar energía e importar masivamente gas en sustitución de la energía nuclear, el exministro Miguel Sebastián apareció en el Congreso sin corbata para imitar a los japoneses tras decretar el cupo a las renovables y la retroactividad fotovoltaica. En octubre de 2012, el exministro José Manuel Soria decidió el voto de España contra la Directiva 2012/27/UE de eficiencia energética porque penalizaba a la economía española, a la vez que redujo los indicadores de eficiencia a uno solo: el PIB. Y la recesión económica obró el milagro de que en 2012 España alcanzara los objetivos de eficiencia energética que Europa fijó para 2020.
