For Californians, higher costs dampen support for clean energy

Wind turbines are seen in Palm SpringsBy Jennifer Chaussee BERKELEY Calif. (Reuters) – An overwhelming majority of California residents support the state's mandate for reducing heat-trapping greenhouse gas emissions, so long as they do not bear the higher costs of cleaner energy themselves, a new public opinion poll shows. Eighty percent of adults surveyed believe climate change poses a serious threat to California's economy and lifestyle, and 68 percent back a 2006 law for lowering statewide greenhouse gas emissions to 1990 levels by 2020. For example, 76 percent of adults agreed with California's requirement that at least a third of all electricity it generates should come from renewable sources, such as solar and wind power, by 2020. The same level of support was found for requiring oil refineries to produce gasoline and other fuels that yield lower carbon dioxide emissions.

Britain to award 200 million pounds in first renewable power auctions

By Susanna Twidale LONDON (Reuters) – Britain will offer guaranteed payments worth more than 200 million pounds (0 million) a year to renewable projects in the first auction of contracts to help boost investment in low carbon power generation. The first auctions will be held in October and renewable firms will bid for the contracts, “ensuring that new, clean electricity generation would be built at the lowest possible cost to energy consumers,” Ed Davey, Energy and Climate Change secretary said in a statement. As a part of extensive reform of Britain’s electricity market the government is changing the way it supports renewable energy projects by replacing direct subsidies with a contracts–for–difference (CfD) system whereby qualifying projects are guaranteed a minimum price at which they can sell electricity. “The government’s reforms to the electricity market will reduce emissions from the power sector much more cheaply than through existing policies – around 6 percent (41 pounds) lower on the average domestic electricity bill up to 2030,” Davey said.  A further 50 million pounds is planned for an auction round in 2015, with a total of around 1 billion pounds potentially available later for further projects up to 2020-21, including those that capture and store carbon emissions underground.

Rescue personnel survey the wreckage of a TransAsia Airways turboprop plane that crashed on Penghu islandBy Faith Hung TAIPEI (Reuters) – Taiwan authorities said on Thursday it was unlikely bad weather was the cause of the crash of a TransAsia Airways turboprop plane the previous day in which 48 people, including two French nationals, were killed. The plane, a 70-seat ATR 72, crashed near the runway while trying to land on the small island of Penghu, west of Taiwan island, after a typhoon had passed earlier in the day. The leaders of rivals China and Taiwan both expressed condolences over the deaths. Taiwan's civil aviation authorities said the weather on Wednesday had been suitable for flying and they were trying to determine the cause of the crash.

Miner Cliffs reports loss on weaker commodity prices, volumes

(Reuters) – Cliffs Natural Resources Inc, facing off against an activist fund that wants to replace its chief executive, reported a bigger-than-expected quarterly loss on Wednesday because of weak commodity prices and a decline in sales volumes. The Cleveland-based iron ore and metallurgical coal producer slightly lowered its forecast for full-year sales and production volume for U.S. iron ore to 22 million tons because of icy winter weather, which hampered shipments. Cliffs reported a net loss of million, or 1 cent a share, for the second quarter, compared with a profit of 3 million, or 82 cents a share, in the quarter a year earlier.

EU sets new energy savings target at 30%

The Frimmersdorf power station on August 10, 2010 in Grevenbroich, western GermanyAfter months of tough negotiations, the European Commission recommended Wednesday a new energy savings target of 30 percent so as to combat climate change and ensure self-sufficiency. In January, the Commission, the European Union's executive arm, said the 28-nation bloc should cut its greenhouse gas emissions by 40 percent by 2030 while renewables should account for 27 percent of energy use. It decided not to set an efficiency target because of sharp differences between member states, especially as steady energy prices in recent years had reduced the incentive to make costly investments in new technology. EU Energy Commissioner Guenther Oettinger stressed both aspects as he announced the 30 percent target on Wednesday.
