Logistical challenges and price increases in the solar supply chain are expected to depress deployments next year, resulting in what could be a 7.4 GW (25%) decrease in solar installations for 2022 compared to previous forecasts. And, for the second quarter in a row, trade policy uncertainty and supply chain constraints are driving solar price increases across all market segments. […]
Shares of solar PV product manufacturer AstroPower, Inc. slid nearly 50 percent Friday during heavy trading following disappointing second quarter results released Thursday.
"Supplemental" capacity expansions have badly inflated PV equipment suppliers' revenues to the point that it will eventually drag down equipment sales in 2012 and 2013, says Solarbuzz. The result: equipment suppliers need to align with Tier-1 makers' plans, not the end-market.
Though the geothermal industry faces many hurdles including uncertain federal policies and lengthy project timelines, the Geothermal Energy Association announced last week that it added 91 MW of newly installed U.S. capacity in the past year. With this addition, the U.S. now has a total of 3,177 MW of capacity, which far outpaces the rest of the world.
As our knowledge of how to clean up and prevent pollution increases and scientists slowly discover why we get certain illnesses and diseases, the world becomes more conscious of creating ways to make work environments safer; not only for the laborers, but for the entire human race. The goal is not necessarily to shut the processes down, but to reroute the toxic chemicals emitted in order to capture their vapors from releasing into the ozone. It's a new generation of wind, tidal and solar energy generators providing the world with its power. Continents are rapidly expanding their renewable energy resources, budgets and plans in order to eliminate dependency on these medieval practices that shortens the future of a healthy humanity.
In the current economic climate, we are confronted with daily reminders of dwindling demand for products and escalating job losses that are impacting many American industries. Yet in this unsure time characterized by factories closing their doors and laying off workers, the wind industry continues to shine as a testimony to American innovation and manufacturing might.
The research efforts and infrastructure needed to supply 50% of the energy for space and water heating and cooling across Europe using solar thermal energy has been set out under the aegis of the European Solar Thermal Technology Platform (ESTTP). Published in late December 2008, more than 100 experts developed the Strategic Research Agenda (SRA), which includes a deployment roadmap showing the non-technological framework conditions that will enable this ambitious goal to be reached by 2050.
Many developments will occur over the coming year that will have long-lasting implications for the solar PV (photovoltaic) market in Ontario. 2009 saw the introduction of the Green Energy and Economy Act that produced a favorable Feed-In-Tariff (FIT) program. 2010 was a landmark year thanks to the approval of several hundred MWs of solar projects through the FIT program. 2011 is the year where it will become clear whether the Ontario market will be a flash in the pan or will gain the momentum to become a long-term sustainable industry.
EDF Energies Nouvelles has signed an agreement with Clipper Windpower for the supply of 67.5 MW of wind turbines. Clipper Turbine Works, a subsidiary of Clipper Windpower, will supply 27 wind turbines, each with a 2.5 MW capacity, to build the first phase of the La Ventosa wind farm in Mexico.
In Berlin for the European Offshore Wind Conference & Exhibition in December, Eize de Vries reports on Europe's goal of having 40,000 MW of offshore wind power by 2020, and on the technologies and businesses planning to deliver that goal.
