Low-impact solar development can improve soil health, retain water, nurture native species, produce food, and provide low-cost energy to local communities.
By transitioning to a 100% renewable energy grid with a sustainable hydropower backbone, we can curb the worst effects of climate change.
Entergy Mississippi plans to increase its mix of renewables from less than 1% to nearly one-third by 2027.
While U.S. and Chinese solar firms square off, Navigant Consulting's Paula Mints points to four things that need to happen to get everyone's focus back on the real prize: a level playing field against other energy sources.
Across the world, from east to west, the provision of wind power is increasing dramatically with, for example, China and the U.S.A. producing the first and second largest volumes of wind power respectively. So what must wind turbine suppliers and engineers do to ensure that the ever-increasing demand for wind power is satisfied?
Despite healthy expected returns, finance-related challenges remain the largest barriers to renewable energy development, according to NREL's Renewable Energy Finance Tracking Initiative (REFTI).
Europe’s offshore wind sector is twice as healthy as this time last year, according to a first look at mid-2013 statistics from the European Wind Energy Association (EWEA).
Mid-2012, the solar shutdowns and the industry's painful correction continue. Motech announced that it will shutter US-based polysilicon manufacturer AE Polysilicon, and GE announced that it is stopping construction on its CdTe manufacturing facility in Colorado, citing un-competitively low prices and a return to R&D. In early 2012, CdTe manufacturer Abound made a very similar announcement of a return to R&D. Abound ceased operations officially in June, and filed for bankruptcy. The solar industry desperately needs a return to pricing sanity (meaning healthy margins) and frankly, needs to remain optimistic during these painful times – realistic optimism is possible, even now.
Europe boasts the largest installed base of hydro capacity in the world, but this region is widely considered the most mature and developed, with few prospects for significant growth. Nonetheless, the past year has seen continued market activity in Europe, demonstrating a healthy hydro sector.
There was a solar eclipse yesterday. The kind in the sky where the moon partially obscures the sun.
