Currently, the 20 gas wells underneath the landfill produce almost 3.9 million gpd of methane which could be significantly increased with the addition of more wells, the county notes.
In 2009, the county negotiated a 20-year contract with E.ON U.S., the corporation that operated Kentucky Utilities and Louisville Gas & Electric Co, in the hopes that they could generate $2 million over the course of the contract. Ultimately, E.ON U.S. was purchased by PPL Corp., and due to a then low market the deal fell through.

The Energy Efficient Mortgages Action Plan (EeMAP) Initiative -- led by the European Mortgage Federation-European Covered Bond Council (EMF-ECBC), Ca' Foscari University of Venice, RICS, the Europe Regional Network of the World Green Building Council, E.ON and SAFE Goethe University Frankfurt -- aims to create an energy efficient mortgage through which home purchasers are incentivized to improve the energy efficiency of their building or acquire an already energy efficient property by way of favourable conditions linked to the mortgage.
The assumption is that energy efficiency has a risk mitigation effect for banks as a result of the impact on a borrower's ability to service his/her loan and on the value of the property, a correlation which the EeMAP Initiative will seek to substantiate.

To accommodate, Vestas will develop specific transportation and installation solutions as well as engineer, procure and construct turbines, foundations, roads and crane pads for the site-specific approach. The project will generate roughly 75 GWh per year -- sufficient power for over 20,000 German households.

As in Germany, E.On will be the first energy company in Britain to offer its customers a digital assessment of the PV potential of their homes.
Ultimately, Sunroof "translates" the determined amount of light into energy and the potential cost savings. Based on this data, customers in Germany can request a complete package consisting of a photovoltaic module and the E.ON SolarCloud, optionally with Aura battery storage. E.On also provides a "sunshine guarantee" to ensure that the solar system achieves the calculated yields, with lower values met with financial compensation by the company.
The two firms are also preparing a market launch in Italy, while the one-year programme in Germany will now be extended until the end of the year.
Google launched Sunroof in the United States in 2015. The platform is currently covering approximately 60 million buildings. According to Google, around 79 pct of the roofs covered by the application were suitable for the installation of a solar power generator, while in the south of the country, their percentage reached 90 pct.

KPS' 40-MW power system comprises two kites which have the ability to fly up to a height of 1500 ft. By using tethers, the kites are attached to a winch system that produces electricity as it spools out.
The technology can be deployed both offshore and onshore. Power generation through its kite technology would not need subsidies from governments owing to the system's lower capital and operational costs.
The company plans to develop a 3MW onshore system at the test facility and install a similar sized power system in offshore waters. (Source: Kite Power Systems, EBR, others, 23 June, 2017) Contact: Kite Power Systems, David Ainsworth, Business Dev, +44 141 465 7633, www.kitepowersystems.com
