Conflicting Research on Renewables; Spanish Energy Companies Entering the U.S.

There have been a number of contradictory academic and government studies on photovoltaics and biofuels released over the last two months. Because renewable energy is becoming a hot topic in the press, various media outlets are reporting on the studies without proper comparison and analysis, says industry expert Scott Sklar. We’ll talk with Sklar about the negative and positive studies and get his opinion on how the press is covering the issues. He’ll also tell us about the latest renewable energy tax title on Capitol Hill.

Also in the podcast: Reese Tisdale, senior analyst for the Renewable Power Generation Advisory at Emerging Energy Research, puts global development figures into perspective and tells us what the hottest markets may be for 2008 and beyond.

Finally, Brian Gaylord, a market analyst for the Spanish Trade Commission, talks about the country’s renewable energy market dynamics and explains why so many Spanish companies are looking to get into the U.S.
