A number of interesting items showed up in my inbox via my Google Alert on "renewable energy." The New York Public Service Commission announces "full steam ahead" on developing renewable energy sources. Along the same line, the Irish government is announcing another round of funding for renewable energy projects in order to reach the EU Renewables Directive of 13% by 2010. AlJazeera takes note of international developments in harnessing tidal and wave energy. And from Dhaka, Bangladesh's The Independent, an overview of "scattered" approaches to renewable energy development in that country.
