Carnegie Clean Energy starts to make good on its promise to broaden its focus on clean energy projects other than wave power

Having very recently written about Ocean Power technologies (OPT), I approached the ASX-listed Carnegie Clean Energy company with a slightly weary feeling of “Here we go again.” Just over a year ago at an AGM on 2 December 2016, Carnegie Wave Power (CWP) shareholders voted overwhelmingly to change the company name to Carnegie Clean Energy [...]

Ruminations on renewable energy: storage is the missing link

When I started Greenbarrel.Com in its latest incarnation last year I knew it was going to be a different experience from my first venture into internet publishing in 2003, even though the business model is similar.  The first venture was Oilbarrel.com, an online platform for investors interested in putting money into small oil and gas [...]

Drax Group insists that operationally it is in good shape despite some slightly puzzling key financial performance indicators

As I sift through the various press releases from London-listed Drax Group, I think of BBC Radio 4’ s Today Programme. Most mornings recently the programme has set a puzzle.  The public utterances by the Drax Group, owner of the UK’s largest power station, are nothing if not a bit puzzling.

A Christmas message from the editors and publishers of Greenbarrel.com

The year 2017 saw mixed fortunes for Greenbarrel. In February our original website Greenbarrel.org crashed. Various attempts made to  resuscitate it failed. The three founders of Greenbarrel myself, Barney Smith and Julian Singer spent from April through to mid-August constructing our new platform Greenbarrel.com. This involved repopulating the archives with our past best features and [...]
