I have a confession to make. I am one of those folks who consistently write on wonky energy things without ever taking the time to write out simple explanations of the basic concepts or why they matter.
So, this piece will give a brief description of what electricity capacity…http://alternativeenergy.com.pk/international-news/how-a-capacity-market-works-electricity-capacity-markets/ Biofuels, capacity market, capacity markets, Carbon and De-carbonization, Cleantech, Climate, Coal, electrical system, Electricity, Energy, Environment, natural gas, Nuclear Power, Oil, power plants, Solar Power, Sustainability, Wave & Tidal, Wind
In its ongoing quest for repeal of the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS), the oil industry continues to spread misinformation about ethanol and other renewable fuels.

About 17% of our worldwide energy consumption comes from renewables. And that share has not increased in recent years.
However, in coming years, wind energy and solar energy will probably bring that share of renewables up. Though the possibilities vary a lot by country.
