AEI worked with Scotty Daniels for many years on his property near Snyder, TX to gather wind data for wind farm development. AEI provided data logger and sensor use as well as pre-development analysis and assistance with data distribution. After more than ten years of collaboration, Mr. Daniels has a wind project on his property. Please view the webcam of construction at the WindKraftNord Project Mozart:

Lesotho has signed a $15 billion (11 billion euro) renewable energy deal with a South African company in the country’s largest-ever private investment, officials said on Thursday. “The project aims to harness the natural resources of wind and water in Lesotho’s Maluti Mountains to produce power that will be used by both Lesotho and South Africa,” Johannesburg-based Harrison & White Investments said in a statement. The Lesotho Highlands Power Project (LHPP) will generate 6,000 megawatts of wind p …

General Electric Co. said Thursday it is selling 350 wind turbines to BP PLC’s wind energy arm in a deal valued at roughly $750 million.
BP said the deal, encompassing equipment and five-year service agreement, reflects the energy giant’s push to aggressively expand its presence in U.S. wind energy projects.
Roughly 88 wind turbines will be delivered to BP’s Mehoopany Wind Farm located on a 9,000-acre site in Pennsylvannia. The remaining 262 units will be delivered to a Kansas wind farm. Both projects, which will have a combined power generation of 560 megawatts, are expected to be on line by the end of next year.
“We continue to see strong demand for our advanced wind turbine technology because of its capability to meet the economic and environmental priorities of operators like BP Wind Energy,” said Victor Abate, vice president of renewables for GE Power & Water.
Reporting third-quarter results last week, GE said profit fell 9% at its big energy business amid pressure on prices for wind turbines. The conglomerate’s energy business is a key focus for the company as it aims to shift back to its industrial roots.

DOD wants industry to invest $7B in alternative energy
Oct 21, 2011
The Defense Department wants private industry to spend big bucks on alternative-energy resources for Army installations and has created a team to complete the task, reports the Army News Service.
The new Energy Initiatives Task Force’s role is to persuade businesses to invest up to $7 billion in solar energy, wind power and other large-scale renewable-energy projects to be installed on military bases, according to an Oct. 18 panel at the 2011 Association of the United States Army Annual Meeting and Exposition.
In order to solicit the private capital, the Army must first be an attractive investment option, said Richard Kidd, the Army’s deputy assistant secretary for energy and sustainability. This can be accomplished through streamlined business processes, efforts to reduce risk, and improving the due diligence of projects, he explained.
“We can’t order the private sector to do business with us,” Kidd said.
Fort Bliss in Texas is a good model, the news service said. By partnering with El Paso Electric on renewable projects, the military post has saved $2.7 million annually on energy programs, and will soon be launching a solar facility and gas turbine.
