Rhone Resch: An Industry, Not an Issue

"Any time you are embraced by the administration it's a great thing, but opponents to the administration can make it work against you," said Resch, the 44-year-old president and CEO of the Solar Energy Industries Association. This Washington, D.C.-based trade group represents the interests of the solar energy industry. Resch said he expects the mid-term congressional elections to result in more of a numerical balance between Republicans and Democrats on Capitol Hill. But he also believes fewer opportunities will exist for Congress to pass aggressive legislative initiatives that benefit renewables.
Ocean Energy Contenders Race to Market

Ocean Energy Contenders Race to Market

As global energy demand continues to increase, renewables are clearly becoming a much more important part of the energy mix. Of the various renewable energy options, marine energy (wave and tidal) is particularly interesting as it is relatively new but offers significant opportunities for growth. Vast resources are being spent to design and build marine energy systems that are scalable and provide energy at a reasonable cost, and significant testing is now underway.
Where to watch: Ernst & Young’s Renewable Energy Country Attractiveness Index

Where to watch: Ernst & Young’s Renewable Energy Country Attractiveness Index

In 1997, Ernst & Young predicted global investment in renewable energy would reach US$70 billion by 2006. At the time, this figure was considered ambitious, but, in fact, investment in the renewable and clean energy sector reached just over $100 billion in 2006 and could rise to over $750 billion by 2016 at current rates of growth. Jonathan Johns presents his company's latest country attractiveness index.
