Is the Iowa renewable energy boom about to burst? According to the Gazett, ethanol producers have scaled back production in recent months, and wind energy machinery manufactures have been forced to lay off hundreds of workers across the state as production stalled. Over the last decade, ethanol production in Iowa has boomed.
The only thing standing in the way of increased production is the anti-drilling and fracking activists. Environmental concerns regarding fracking has caused the government to investigate and place heavy regulations on the fracking process. The investigations of regulations have caused production to slow down. While alternative energy source, natural gas, is still a fossil fuel, it produces half of the carbon emissions that traditional fossil fuels.
Due to the controversy and speculations, the EPA has investigated a number of event involving fracking including, water contamination and seismic activity studies. These uncertainties regarding fracking has certainly affected a number of wells in North Dakota, said Helms.
On one hand, the current administration empowers the Clean Air Act and encourage natural gas production, energy from shale. On the other hand, the Obama Administration could potentially regulate fracking, which would increase cost. State governments are currently responsible for fracking regulations.
Marcellus Shale Production is about to become the most productive natural gas field in the United State. Energy for shale is natural gas used to fuel local industry. Marcellus Shale sits under parts of Pennsylvania, West Virginia, New York, and Ohio.
All signs are pointing in favor of a new fracking economy. Hydraulic fracturing (commonly referred to as fracking), has been used since the 1940s as a method of extracting oil and gas. Today, an abundance of natural gas and new technologies, means opportunities for economic growth. New hydraulic fracturing technologies are being developed everyday to increase fracking efficiency.
Natural gas cost less than alternative fuel sources. For example, while the price of gasoline has risen rapidly over the last year, the price of natural gas has fallen to the lowest level in a decade. The reason why natural gas prices are low has to do with increase production of hydraulic fracturing. Efforts are being made to use more natural gas.
Vehicles: For example, most fleet vehicles (buses) already use natural gas. The market is limited to vehicles that can make it back to headquarter for refilling. Crystler announced a pickup truck that will run on both gasoline and natural gas.
