Renewables Hit the Big Time

Renewables Hit the Big Time

Once upon a time, not too long ago, renewable-energy projects sized in kilowatts (kW) were considered large. The biggest solar array in 1963 had a mere 242 watts of capacity, and was installed on a lighthouse in Japan. Wind power, which took off more quickly, reached its first 100-kilowatt system in 1931, in Yalta, then part of the Soviet Union. And at that time, wave and tidal power plants were still twinkles in researchers' eyes.

Speculation on Solar Future Hits Overdrive

Speculation on Solar Future Hits Overdrive

Amidst the world economic recession and credit crisis, the solar industry is quickly amassing nearly as many predictions of gloom and doom as it attracted wildly optimistic forecasts a year ago. Some analysts claim the worst is not yet over and that the shakeout will be brutal. They predict the higher cost of finance will continue to choke-off growth, sinking average selling prices (ASPs), engendering demand destruction, and even leading to the loss of subsidies due to falling government tax receipts.
