Houston-based Talos Energy Inc. is diving into carbon capture and storage (CCS) opportunities along the Gulf Coast and offshore with UK expert Storegga Geotechnologies Ltd.
The U.S. plans to auction eight lease areas for offshore wind power in the shallow stretch of the Atlantic between New York’s Long Island and New Jersey.
The construction has commenced on the world’s first fully electric passenger fast ferry at the Fjellstrand shipyard in Norway, partners in the EU-funded TrAM project said
Executive Order No. 218 reaffirms North Carolina’s commitment to creating clean energy jobs, increasing economic opportunities, and reducing greenhouse gas emissions through the expansion of offshore wind power.
The world’s largest oil and gas companies increased investment in clean energy by 34% in 2020, despite a 6% fall in global energy demand caused by the coronavirus pandemic, according to new research published on Tuesday (8 June).
In a letter dated June 4, 2021, the governors of Connecticut, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Rhode Island and Virginia commended the Biden administration for its recently announced commitment to developing wind energy off the US coast.1
The Department of Energy (DOE) set a goal for hydrogen made with clean power, such as renewables and nuclear energy plants, by 80% to $1 per kilogram in a decade.
I’m from Maine, and I return every time I can. I’m not from the coast, but my cousins are, and boiled lobster is the standard at any summer gathering. I remember my lobsterman cousin pulling up in his pickup with two big Styrofoam coolers packed full of bugs.
Texas A&M researchers are developing an ocean renewable energy station that could combine wind, wave, current and solar energy methods on a floating offshore platform.
GE Renewable Energy’s plans for a mammoth factory to manufacture state-of-the-art blades for offshore wind turbines have taken a major step forward, after plans were submitted that could create up to 2,250 jobs.
The California Assembly voted on Thursday to pass AB 525, legislation that would direct state agencies to plan for the development of utility-scale offshore wind energy.
State coastal regulators approved a vital certification for the South Fork Wind Farm on Wednesday, a decision that pushes the second major offshore wind project proposed in the United States one step closer to reality.
The world's first 100,000-ton deep-sea semi-submersible oil production and storage platform, China’s self-developed “Deep Sea No 1” energy station, has successfully completed installation of all equipment and is expected to start production at the end of June, China National Offshore Oil Corporation (CNOOC) said on Saturday.
The United States’ offshore wind industry is tiny, with just seven wind turbines operating off Rhode Island and Virginia. The few attempts to build large-scale wind farms like in Europe have run into long delays — but that may be about to change.
Developers of a planned offshore wind farm to power the South Fork have agreed to reduce the number of turbines for the LIPA-contracted project to 12 from 15, but Rhode Island fishermen offered a $12 million compensation package say the turbine reduction won't help and the package is inadequate.
The regions where the desert meets the sea have long been thought the most desolate and unproductive areas of the world, fruitful solely for those clever cultures who call them home. However, in the 21st century, that fiscal notion is turning on its head, and turning as rapidly as a wind turbine in a tornado.
Departments of the Interior, Defense and the State of California agree to accelerate wind energy offshore the central and northern coasts of California
Shareholders rebuked the top two U.S. oil companies on Wednesday for dragging their feet on fighting climate change, while a Dutch court ruled that Royal Dutch Shell needs to accelerate cuts to greenhouse gas emissions.
A landmark ruling on Wednesday by a Dutch court ordering Royal Dutch Shell to drastically cut its planned greenhouse gas emissions could impact the United States where most of the world’s climate cases are being litigated.
Floating wind energy projects could open up vast areas of the world’s oceans to produce carbon-free power.
Rhode Island coastal regulators will wait another week before making a decision on a key approval for a large offshore wind farm proposed in ocean waters southeast of Block Island.
On January 27, 2021, President Biden signed Executive Order 14008 ("E.O. 14008"), implementing a temporary pause on the auction of new oil and gas leases on federal land and water while the President's administration reviews the program.
The Departments of Interior and Defense have reached agreement on California sea-space and other issues, clearing the way for the multi-gigawatt (GW) offshore wind power.
The developers of the South Fork Wind Farm are set to reduce the number of turbines from 15 to 12 in response to a request from Rhode Island coastal regulators who want to minimize disruption to the marine environment and the state’s fishing industry.
