Moving Solar Beyond 1603 – There Are Alternatives

Moving Solar Beyond 1603 – There Are Alternatives

The 1603 Federal Grant Program is dead. Fine, so let's all move on because PV solar is here to stay and will be a critical component of our economic growth and environmental health.
US Wind Industry Needs US Manufacturing

US Wind Industry Needs US Manufacturing

Wind manufacturing is recovering but growth is slow. That's the message coming from the American Wind Energy Association (AWEA), which this week released its wind market report for 2010. The manufacturing sector for the wind industry has grown significantly in the past several years, adding, announcing or expanding over 100 facilities since 2007.
Canada Needs a National Solar Policy

Canada Needs a National Solar Policy

The solar industry has worked diligently over the last year to inform and educate the Canadian public and the federal government on the environmental and economic benefits of solar energy. As part of these efforts, representatives and members from the Canadian Solar Industries Association (CanSIA) met with the Department of Finance and Natural Resources to discuss a national incentive structure. In addition, CanSIA representatives stood as witnesses before the Senate Standing Committee on Energy and the Environment, presenting the benefits of solar PV for Canadians. These efforts were instrumental in garnering recommendations for the furthering of solar technology on a national level in the most recent Report of the Standing Committee on Finance. While the industry has made tremendous strides in the Canadian market in the past year, there is still significant work to be done and each province faces different challenges.

ICOLD Focuses on Capacity Building

In line with its mission to support dam engineering and development, the International Commission on Large Dams (ICOLD) offers training programs for engineers. Programs in Turkey, Morocco and China have supported capacity building and relationship development.
Solar Rural Electrification

Solar Rural Electrification

While grid-parity garners most of the attention, the breakthrough of residential solar and mini-grid systems in the developing world may prove a more transformative event for the future of solar PV. Solar manufacturers should be prepared for surges in stand-alone system demand, independent of existing grid-tied demand, as the push for clean electric power increases in the developing world.
