This report presents data on biofuel production in tropical countries in an attempt to provide a preliminary discussion of the agro-environmental impact of biofuel development. Specific attention is paid to Brazil and Malaysia, as they are the major possible exporters to the European Union.
This resource has been extracted and reformatted from the U.S. National Renewable Energy Laboratory's Power Technologies Energy Data Book. The data book is an excellent source of consistent information on renewable energy technology status and future expectations.
This report provides an overview of the Canadian energy market, including energy demand, energy production and energy prices. In 2009, energy prices were lower than the previous year resulting in a decline of about 40 per cent in energy export revenues compared to 2008.
This report summarizes the offshore wind resource potential based on map estimates for the contiguous United States and Hawaii, as of May 2009.
