Sustainable Industry Predictions for the Second Half of 2012

Sustainable Industry Predictions for the Second Half of 2012

The outlook for sustainable industries looked challenging during the first half of 2012, as cleantech average deal sizes along with equity financings, and project financings were down compared to the last quarter of 2011. The upcoming elections European debt crisis, and other macro issues have also been weighing on the US economy during the past several months. However, despite these unfavorable conditions, Cascadia believes that financing and M&A in the sustainable industries will begin to make progress and consequently, stabilize by the end of this year. We expect this recovery to be led in part by activity in the energy efficiency and solar sectors, along with early stage investments.

Why Thin-Film PV Is Struggling, But Not Done Yet

Why Thin-Film PV Is Struggling, But Not Done Yet

Equipment supply to the solar photovoltaic (PV) industry has changed significantly since Oerlikon's entry as a turn-key supplier of a-Si based production lines in 2006. While not exclusively focused on entire turn-key lines, success ultimately would be based upon the market-adoption of amorphous/microcrystalline (a-Si/uc-Si) silicon tandem technology, market-traction of early adopters, and — crucially — repeat orders for turn-key fabs.
Ohio Governor’s Initiatives Support Wind, Biofuels

Ohio Governor’s Initiatives Support Wind, Biofuels

In an effort to join the strong state-based push for renewable energy, Ohio Governor Bob Taft announced a broad package of energy initiatives for the state that include a strong emphasis on both wind energy and biofuels.

Energy Bill Solves Market Access for Wind Power

Energy Bill Solves Market Access for Wind Power

The Energy Policy Act of 2005 signed by President Bush contains a number of important provisions for the wind energy industry. While it's clear by now that the wind power industry will be able to ramp up development thanks to the bill's extension of the production tax credit (PTC) through 2007, there are other elements of the energy bill that bode well for the future of wind power.

Is the Japan PV Market the Next Big Thing?

Japan has been experiencing an enormous boom in solar energy development over the past year. More than 6.7 GW of PV projects have been approved between July 2012 and January 2013, according to the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI), and more than 47 percent of these projects are over 1 megawatt (MW), which is locally known as Mega Solar.
Could a 12-MW Wind Turbine Save GE?

Could a 12-MW Wind Turbine Save GE?

It’s no secret that GE has been struggling lately. The stock price has plunged and rumors abound that the company might be broken into different segments. If that’s true then at least one segment, renewables, is garnering a lot attention. On March 1, 2018, the company announced it would be making a $400 million investment in offshore wind, specifically to build a 12-MW turbine, the largest the world has ever seen.

The Transmission Imperative for Renewables

The Transmission Imperative for Renewables

It's an interesting time to be involved with electricity. The power industry is on the verge of the biggest changes since the days of Thomas Edison and George Westinghouse. Recent breakthroughs around the world in power transmission systems have made it imperative for the U.S. to develop a more intelligent, flexible, long-haul transmission network that can carry renewable energy from remote locations to major population centers.
