Renewable Energy News; GAMA, GE (NYSE: GE) Launch Their First Wind Projects in Turkey

Renewable Energy News; GAMA, GE (NYSE: GE) Launch Their First Wind Projects in Turkey


ANKARA, Turkey--(http://www.investorideas.com/ renewable energy/green newswire )--GAMA Energy A.S., a joint venture between GAMA Holding A.S. and GE (NYSE:GE) unit GE Energy Financial Services, today announced their first wind energy projects in Turkey, the 22.5-megawatt Sares and 10-megawatt Karadag wind farms in the country’s western region. The projects, costing a total €54 million, feature GE’s 2.5-megawatt wind turbines.

“This investment demonstrates Gama Energy’s ability to develop and execute high-quality energy projects”

.GAMA Energy, based in Ankara, is developing and investing in the projects while TSKB, the Industrial Development Bank of Turkey, is arranging and leading €44 million in debt financing. Additional details of the financial transactions were not disclosed. GE Energy is supplying 13 turbines and will operate and maintain them under a services agreement.



The projects’ power will be sold to the merchant market or will benefit from the Turkish regulated feed-in tariff. Construction of the Sares wind farm begins next week and is expected to be completed by the end of this year. Construction of the Karadag project is planned to begin later this year, with completion during the first quarter of 2011.



According to GAMA Energy’s estimates, the wind farms are expected to generate enough electricity to power approximately 59,000 average Turkish homes and avoid approximately 80,000 tons a year in greenhouse gas emissions.



GAMA Energy Managing Director and Board Member M. Arif Ozozan said: “Such wind projects as the ones we are launching today not only support a cleaner environment but create employment opportunities, support our company’s growth objectives and help Turkey achieve its renewable energy goals.”



“These projects represent the growth of our productive partnership with GE as well as our commitment to investing in Turkey’s growing energy sector,” said Hakan Ozman of GAMA Holding A.S.



“This investment demonstrates Gama Energy’s ability to develop and execute high-quality energy projects,” said Andrew Marsden, managing director of Europe at GE Energy Financial Services. “In addition, this investment is in line with GE’s ecomagination program to help customers meet their environmental challenges, and it contributes to our global growth.”



Turkey’s Ministry of Energy and Natural Resources aims to generate 20 percent of its electricity production from renewable resources by 2020. In wind energy, the country has developed just 600 megawatts of an estimated potential 88 gigawatts. “GE Energy Financial Services sees Turkey as an exciting renewable energy market with great prospects if government regulations and tariffs are set appropriately,” Marsden said.

Cleantech Stocks; Energy Recovery Inc’s (NASDAQ: ERII) Pump Engineering Triumphs with Distinction Award for Water Technology Company of the Year

Cleantech Stocks; Energy Recovery Inc’s (NASDAQ: ERII) Pump Engineering Triumphs with Distinction Award for Water Technology Company of the Year

Industry-Leading Energy Recovery Devices Lauded for Innovative Global Desalination Application; Energy Recovery also Recognized as Integral to the Desalination Plant of the Year

SAN LEANDRO, Calif.--(Investorideas.com water stocks newswire )--Energy Recovery Inc (NASDAQ: ERII), a leader in the design and development of energy recovery devices for desalination, today announced that Pump Engineering (acquired by Energy Recovery in 2009) received the Distinction Award in the Water Technology Company of the Year category as part of the Global Water Intelligence Global Water Awards 2010. Energy Recovery was also recognized as part of the Desalination Plant of the Year Award for the inclusion of the company’s industry-leading PX Pressure Exchanger™ (PX™) energy recovery devices as an integral component at the Barcelona-Llobregat desalination plant in Spain.

“The Global Water Awards recognize industry visionaries and technology innovators, highlighting those companies and projects that set the standard for the global water industry to follow”

.“The 2010 Global Water Awards represent a crowning achievement for Energy Recovery from both a business and a technology perspective,” said G.G. Pique, president and CEO of Energy Recovery Inc. “The recognition of Pump Engineering as the Distinction Award winner in the Water Technology Company of the Year category further validates the significance of that strategic acquisition, and the Barcelona-Llobregat desalination plant being selected as the Desalination Plant of the Year demonstrates just how vital our PX devices are to the success of a seawater reverse osmosis (SWRO) desalination facility. We are grateful to Global Water Intelligence and the entire international water industry for their continued recognition of Energy Recovery as a global industry business and technology leader.”



The Global Water Intelligence Global Water Awards recognize the most significant achievements in the global water industry during the past year, and the Water Technology Company of the Year acknowledges the company that has made the most significant contribution in the field of water technology. Pump Engineering, a leading provider of centrifugal turbine energy-saving technology for seawater and brackish desalination applications, was selected as the Distinction Award winner for its considerable achievements in 2009, including doubling global market share and securing a contract for its energy recovery devices at the Magtaa desalination plant in Algeria. Pump Engineering’s success in 2009 culminated in the December acquisition by Energy Recovery Inc, creating one of the industry’s most comprehensive portfolios of energy recovery devices and fluid processing systems for SWRO desalination as well as for oil and gas processing.



In addition, Energy Recovery was also recognized for the integration of its PX devices into the Barcelona-Llobregat desalination plant, the winner of the Desalination Plant of the Year Award. Producing 200,000 m3/day of potable water for metropolitan Barcelona, the SWRO facility is the largest in Europe. By reducing the energy consumed during the SWRO desalination process by up to 60 percent, Energy Recovery is helping the Barcelona-Llobregat and other global facilities cost-effectively produce fresh, clean water.



“The Global Water Awards recognize industry visionaries and technology innovators, highlighting those companies and projects that set the standard for the global water industry to follow,” said Christopher Gasson, publisher of Global Water Intelligence. “Energy Recovery and Pump Engineering have long been two of the industry’s established leaders, so it is no surprise that the combined entity has been acknowledged for its cutting-edge technology achievements as well as for the practical application of its solutions. We applaud Energy Recovery and look forward to continued success from the company in 2010 and beyond.”



Energy Recovery's PX devices operate at up to 98 percent efficiency and reduce the energy consumption of SWRO systems by up to 60 percent, making desalination a cost-effective solution for clean water supply. PX devices also reduce the carbon footprint of desalination, saving more than 900 MW of energy and reducing CO2 emissions by more than 4.7 million tons per year worldwide. More than 10,000 of Energy Recovery’s devices are currently deployed or under contract to be installed at desalination plants across the globe. For more information about Energy Recovery's PX Pressure Exchanger technology, visit http://www.energyrecovery.com or send an email to info@energyrecovery.com.

The Hemiwedge® Cartridge valves have been successfully installed and used in natural gas dehydrators where water vapor is removed from natural gas before its processed into LNG. The Cartridge feature of the valve provides low maintenance costs and the Hemiwedge design provides reliability of sealing in low and high temperatures/pressures.



The Company has enjoyed a relationship with Clean Energy as a customer for more than a year and looks forward to growing with them in the future as they are North America's leader in clean transportation.


Ken Chickering, CEO of Hemiwedge Industries, stated, "We are pleased to have such a great reference customer in this application and market segment. We view their initiative of expanding the use of domestic natural gas and LNG for transportation fuel in North America as a significant growth market."
About Hemiwedge Industries, Inc.
Hemiwedge Valve Corporation ("HVC"), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Hemiwedge Industries, operates as a global supplier of engineered valve products. In its 60,000 square foot ISO 9001 and API Q1 approved facility in Conroe, Texas, the Company manufactures and markets worldwide a patented proprietary valve technology known as the Hemiwedge® Cartridge valve product line. The Hemiwedge® Cartridge valve is a proven innovative design that incorporates a hemispherical wedge to provide a mechanically sealing, tight shutoff valve with a simple quarter-turn operation that provides outstanding longevity and performance in a broad range of applications. Unlike ball valves, the stationary core of the Hemiwedge® Cartridge valve directs flow away from the seat surfaces which allows longer service life. The "Cartridge" feature reduces expensive downtime during valve maintenance as all of the internal parts of the valve are attached to the bonnet, as a Cartridge, which allows a quick exchange of all the internals of the valve while the valve body remains in the line. This feature is especially relevant in weld-in line valve bodies and severe service applications. Hemiwedge® Cartridge valve has been successfully used by reference customers in applications including refining, mining, process, pipeline, power, mid-stream and petro-chemical markets. The product line currently ranges in bore sizes from one inch to twenty inches, API 6D monogram, and ANSI class 150 through 900.

Green IPO Watch at Renewableenergystocks.com Reports on Filing for Alternative Fuel Company, Amyris Biotechnologies, Inc.

Green IPO Watch at Renewableenergystocks.com Reports on Filing for Alternative Fuel Company, Amyris Biotechnologies, Inc.




POINT ROBERTS, WA – April 19 2010 - www.RenewableEnergyStocks.com, a leading investor news and research portal for the renewable energy sector within www.Investorideas.com,reports on the announced IPO for Alternative Fuel Company, Amyris Biotechnologies, Inc.. The Company has filed to trade under the symbol “AMRS”.


From the SEC Filing - AMYRIS BIOTECHNOLOGIES, INC.:

“Our objective is to become the leading provider of renewable specialty chemicals and transportation fuels worldwide”


Business Overview

Our Company

We are building an integrated renewable products company by applying our industrial synthetic biology platform to provide alternatives to select petroleum-sourced products used in specialty chemical and transportation fuel markets worldwide. We genetically modify microorganisms, primarily yeast, and use them as living factories in established fermentation processes to convert plant-sourced sugars into potentially thousands of target molecules. Our first commercialization efforts have been focused on a molecule called farnesene, which forms the basis for a wide range of products varying from specialty chemical applications such as detergents, cosmetics, perfumes and industrial lubricants, to transportation fuels such as diesel. We call these No Compromise® products because we design them to perform comparably to or better than currently available products. While our platform is able to utilize a wide variety of feedstocks, we have focused our initial research and development, business development and production operations on the use of Brazilian sugarcane as our primary feedstock because of its abundance, low cost and relative price stability. We intend to secure access to this feedstock and expand our production capacity in a “capital light” manner. Under this approach, we expect to work with Brazilian sugar and ethanol producers to build new, “bolt-on” facilities adjacent to their existing mills instead of building entirely new “greenfield” facilities, thereby reducing the capital required to establish and scale our production. Our first such arrangement is our joint venture with Usina São Martinho, a subsidiary of São Martinho S.A., one of the largest sugar and ethanol producers in Brazil.







Technology

We have developed genetic engineering and screening technologies that enable us to modify the way microorganisms, or microbes, process sugar. By controlling these metabolic pathways, we design microbes to serve as living factories, or biorefineries, to produce target molecules that we seek to commercialize. Our platform utilizes proprietary high-throughput processes to create and test as many as 1,000 yeast strains a day in order to select those yeast strains which are most efficient. We first developed and applied our technology to create microbial strains to produce artemisinic acid, a precursor of artemisinin, an anti-malarial therapeutic. This work was funded by a five year grant awarded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to the Institute for OneWorld Health. We have granted a royalty-free license to this technology to sanofi-aventis for the commercialization of artemisinin-based drugs.



Feedstock

We are focusing on Brazilian sugarcane as our primary feedstock. Brazil is the world’s largest producer of sugarcane, crushing over 600 million tons of sugarcane annually to provide feedstock to approximately 400 sugar and ethanol mills. According to UNICA, the Brazilian Sugarcane Industry Association, sugarcane is the lowest cost feedstock to produce renewable products at scale and using it enables us to leverage the established Brazilian infrastructure. Common to both our process and the sugarcane-to-ethanol process is the use of fermentation, a well-established process that combines a sugar source and yeast to produce beer, wine and, more recently, ethanol fuels. We plan to establish production capacity taking as input the same sugar source that is routinely processed by existing sugar and ethanol mills and directing it to customized fermentors, where it will be combined with our genetically engineered yeast.

Solar Stocks Commentary from J. Peter Lynch

Solar Stocks Commentary from J. Peter Lynch


Point Roberts, South Salem, New York- April 19, 2010 – www.Investorideas.com and its green investor portal, http://www.renewableenergystocks.com/, update investors with solar stocks commentary from contributor, J. Peter Lynch.

Solar Stocks Commentary with J Peter Lynch – read other articles, Exclusively for InvestorIdeas.com and Renewableenergystocks.com

Current Status of Solar Stocks

Solar stocks did great for the first 12 months of the current bull market (3/09 – 3/10) – up an average of 124%. But as I mentioned in an earlier article the vast majority of that gain was centered in a 8 CHINESE stocks - CSIG,CSUN,JASO,LDK,SOLF,STP,TSL and YGE which were up an amazing 267.96% on average, certainly the major reason that the group as a whole was up 124%. Without the Chinese companies the solar group would have actually underperformed the major averages for that 12 month period.

Looking a bit deeper, OVER 50% of the 267.96% gain was from 2 stocks – CSIG and TSL. This is an extreme case of narrowing (2 of 21) leadership in a sector and is usually a bad sign for the sector. Also note that all of these “leaders” were Chinese companies, which indicates to me that the trend is clearly to LOWEST COST. Good for the Chinese companies, maybe not so good for U.S. and European based companies.

Looking at the first quarter of 2010 the numbers reflect this narrowing with solar sector underperforming the general market significantly.

Solar Stock Performance First Quarter 2010



All Solar Stocks Average -9.89%



Dow Jones +4.11%

S&P 500 +4.87%

NASDAQ +5.68%



So what does all this mean for the investor interested in the solar market sector?

1. It means that the industry is starting another transition phase in its long term growth. This is a period of “lowest cost wins” and of industry wide profit margin compression.



2. It means that because of these factors and probably a host of other factors (lower natural gas prices, uncertainly of government policy etc.) that the solar segment has been a lagging market sector and probably not one which is optimal at this time for new investment. Especially given the higher risk level that the general market is at now.



3. It also means, in my opinion, that the U.S. has to wake up and start to move forward NOW (instead of our “usual” approach of - thinking about having a meeting to discuss planning to do something maybe sometime in the future etc. etc. - i.e. all talk and very little action of any significance) with a strategy to compete with our lower cost Chinese friends. I do not think we can beat them at their own game – lowest cost via cheap labor etc. What we have to do NOW is to do what we do best – INNOVATE. This is the time for investment and focus on new technologies, “out of the box” technologies and not the same old thing. This is a time to increase focus, investment and activity NOT slow down and wait around for someone else to do something that we have historically always been the best at doing. The ball is in our court.

He has been actively involved in following developments in the renewable energy sector since 1977 and is regarded as an expert in this field.

The $4,917,876 reduction in net loss during 2009 is primarily due to $5,940,713 of stock-based compensation expense incurred in 2008 as compared to no stock-based compensation expense in 2009.

Green Energy News; Ontario announces 184 large-scale renewable energy projects

Green Energy News; Ontario announces 184 large-scale renewable energy projects


TORONTO, April 8 ( Investorideas.com renewable energy/green newswire) More Ontario homes and businesses will soon be powered by green energy with the awarding of contract offers for almost 2,500 megawatts of renewable energy announced today by Ontario's Minister of Energy and Infrastructure, Brad Duguid. These projects, approved under the province's landmark Feed-in Tariff (FIT), are part of the largest green energy investment of its kind in Canadian history.

These projects are in addition to the 510 renewable energy contract offers totalling 112 megawatts (MW) approved last month.

"These projects are the latest accomplishments of the Green Energy Act which is making Ontario a place of destination for green energy development, manufacturing, and expertise." said Minister Duguid. "The investments generated by FIT will not only create green jobs, but will also build a coal-free legacy for future generations."


The 184 projects announced today will generate enough energy to power 600,000 homes. Located in communities across the province, the total 694 Feed-in Tariff (FIT) contract offers announced to date will create 20,000 direct and indirect green jobs and attract about $9 billion in private sector investment, as well as investment in new Ontario-based manufacturing.
"In six short months the Feed-in Tariff program has delivered strong results and has more than exceeded our expectations," said Ontario Power Authority CEO Colin Andersen.


Enabling community and aboriginal participation in renewable energy development is a key objective of the province's Green Energy Act. Thirty-six community and aboriginal projects will receive a first round FIT contract. These projects are located in communities throughout the province.

"I'm pleased to see aboriginal and local communities across Ontario as active participants in the green energy movement. Their leadership enhances Ontario's efforts to establish itself as a North American leader in renewable energy," said Minister Duguid.

Seventy-six of the approved projects are ground-mounted solar photovoltaic, 47 are on-shore wind and 46 are waterpower projects. There are also seven biogas, two biomass, four landfill gas, one roof top solar and one off-shore wind projects. Detailed information about the projects, including their locations, is available on the Ontario Power Authority's website at www.powerauthority.on.ca.

Significantly expanding the amount of renewable generation is a key part of the provincial government's strategy to address climate change by eliminating dirty coal-fired generation by the end of 2014. The FIT program's mandatory requirements for "made in Ontario" technologies and services also makes renewable generation a key part of the strategy to make the province North America's leader in green jobs and manufacturing.
Future transmission system expansion will open up capacity to accommodate more renewable projects. Projects that did not receive a first round FIT contract offer will now be put through what is called an Economic Connection Test (ECT) to identify transmission or distribution system expansion projects that support renewable generation and meet economic requirements. The first test will start in August/September. Renewable energy projects enabled by these expansions projects will be eligible for a FIT contract once work begins on the projects.

The Ontario Power Authority is responsible for ensuring a reliable, sustainable supply of electricity for Ontario. Its four key areas of focus are: planning the power system for the long term, leading and co-ordinating conservation initiatives across the province, ensuring development of needed generation resources, and supporting the continued evolution of the electricity sector.

additional quotes related to today's announcement can be found on the Feed-in Tariff website.

Deepak Chopra – On the Environment, Efficient and Clean Energy

Deepak Chopra – On the Environment, Efficient and Clean Energy
From his book, “The Spontaneous Fulfillment of Desire”

April 7th

I thought I would share this with readers and investors.
Excerpt:
“If each of us could aspire to express the expanded self, and if we could share the knowledge and experience of our expanded selves with one another, perhaps we could create an environment based on respect for life, and achieve a restoration of balance in the oceans, the forests and the wilderness. This transformed environment would in turn, result in the simultaneous co-arising of events that would lead to a completely new world. On this ideal planet we would find peace of mind, a sense of the sacred, economic partnerships and prosperity, efficient and clean energy industries, a scientific understanding of the new reality, a flourishing of the arts and philosophy, and a true awareness of our inseparability. In such a society we would see clearly that love is the ultimate force at the heart of the universe.”


It’s an idealistic dream for today’s world but if you read the environmental headlines and see 90% of a lake disappear causing massive environmental damage – maybe we need to take heed and quickly!
