Major Energy Breakthroughs of 2013: The Year of Clean Energy Advances

Here we recap some advances of 2013 in the world of clean energy—advances that work toward a “zero-carbon future”. Those advances include:

The giant Ivanpah solar thermal project in the Mojave Desert is now 92 percent complete, developers said this week. The 377-megawatt project consists of three 459-foot-tall towers encircled by arrays of garage-door-sized mirror sets. These computer-controlled heliostats -- 153,990 of which are now in place -- will reflect the sun onto the receiving towers, heating water to create steam that will drive turbines that produce electricity.

The world's largest solar power plant, Ivanpah Solar Electric Generating System, is now fully functional and
