American Solar Energy Society (ASES)
The American Solar Energy Society (ASES) is dedicated to advancing the use of solar energy for the benefit of US citizens and the global environment. Includes information on solar energy technologies.
Bioenergy Feedstock Information Network (BFIN)
A gateway to information about fast growing trees, grasses, and residues for biomass fuels and power. A US Government site, with a lot of international links.
British Wind Energy Association (BWEA)
The British Wind Energy Association is the largest renewable energy trade association in the UK, and is committed to supporting the continuing development of the wind energy industry.
COWRIE (Collaborative Offshore Wind Research Into The Environment)
Contains a wealth of authoritative information about offshore windfarm development in the UK, including the results of recent scientific research studies, maps showing the location of windfarms that have already been built in UK waters, information about proposed site developments and a list of links to other websites providing relevant information relating to Government Policy, and individual projects and developers.
European Biomass Association
A group of national biomass associations with the aim of promoting biomass production and application throughout Europe. Includes articles and details of projects and publications.
Promotes the replacement of nuclear and fossil fuels and their sources with environmentally sound energy sources, using both direct and indirect sources of a solar energy, such as solar energy, wind energy, biomass, hydropower, and the ocean energies.
Geothermal Energy Blog
The Geothermal Energy Blog is devoted to the documentation of key monographic literature relating to all aspects of geothermal energy.
IEA Bioenergy was set by the International Energy Agency (IEA), and aims to accelerate the use of environmentally sound and cost competitive bioenergy on a sustainable basis, and thereby achieve a substantial contribution to future energy demands.
Illustrated History of Wind Power Development
As this is a US site, it's particularly interested in the development of the wind power industry in America, but it does cover Europe to a lesser extent.
International Solar Energy Society (ISES)
ISES exists for the promotion of solar and renewable energy, covering such diverse fields as solar thermal and solar photovoltaic, solar architecture or wind and biomass energy.
Microgeneration Certification Scheme
The Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) is an independent scheme that certifies microgeneration products and installers in accordance with consistent standards. It is designed to evaluate microgeneration products and installers against robust criteria providing greater protection for consumers.
NREL: Photovoltaics for Buildings
US government site that aims to improve photovoltaic (PV) building technology and to educate consumers and the building industry about PV to overcome technical and commercial barriers to market acceptance of the technology. Includes research, and information on PV for homes and commercial buildings.
RESTATS is the Renewable Energy STATisticS database and is the results of an ongoing study undertaken by AEA Energy & Environment on behalf of the Department of Trade and Industry. It consists of a database containing information on all relevant renewable energy sources in the United Kingdom, and can be searched using an interactive map.
Provided by the Danish Wind Industry Association, this site includes more than 100 pages and calculators on wind resources, wind turbine technology, economics, and environmental aspects of wind energy.
