Opportunities for Independent Renewables Developers in a Changing Policy Environment

Opportunities for Independent Renewables Developers in a Changing Policy Environment

In the past, most of the growth in large renewable energy installations was carried out by independent developers. Today, the typical developer’s business model is based on capturing the yield arbitrage between early stage projects and operating assets (or a middle point in the development process) due to different risk profiles. But the collapse of SunEdison seems like the nail in the coffin for this business model.

Amid a flood of solar applications, Maine seeks a more targeted approach

A stakeholder group tasked with helping lawmakers incentivize distributed generation and plan grid upgrades is expected to issue its first of two reports by Jan. 1.
U.S. Offshore Wind Farm Bid Faces Delay

U.S. Offshore Wind Farm Bid Faces Delay

An already drawn-out permitting process for one of the most anticipated and controversial wind energy projects in the U.S. stands a chance to take even longer and to cost the project developers more money.
Will Utilities Price Community Solar Subscriptions Fairly?

Will Utilities Price Community Solar Subscriptions Fairly?

Utility-sponsored community solar gardens offer real benefits to the grid, especially when the utility has a say in where to site the project, because they can be sited where they are most needed, even closer to load on the grid than polluting natural gas plants.
Third-party financing as a growth strategy for developers

Third-party financing as a growth strategy for developers

The solar industry has experienced tremendous growth over the past few years. In the early 2000s, the industry was composed of a few specialized players. With the growth of federal and state level incentive programs as well as innovations in financing, more players entered the space. Programs like the 1603 Cash Grant allowed developers and those that did not have access […]
Lessons in Solar Development for the Latin American Market

Lessons in Solar Development for the Latin American Market

Latin America has one of the world’s brightest solar power market outlooks. High power prices and volatile fuel supplies have made solar cheaper than fossil fuels in many countries, driving new investment and capacity additions. Chile, Uruguay, and Costa Rica were three of the just seven nations worldwide to show an increase in renewable energy financing in 2013, according to Bloomberg New Energy Finance (BNEF).
Solar Tracking Systems Gain Ground

Solar Tracking Systems Gain Ground

It sounds obvious: put solar panels on a movable mount to follow the sun and catch as much sunlight as possible. But applying solar trackers to a project is not clear cut. Developers not only have to consider cost and location but the type of tracker that best suits the project. Yet as innovations in technology continue, trackers are starting to play a larger role in the industry.
