The British government is assembling a group of experts to undertake a national review of energy research and demonstration activities.
The British government has started a review of strategic issues surrounding energy policy, partly based on the assumption that renewable energy will not be a major contribution to energy supply within 50 years.
A number of renewable energy projects were recognized by the Interstate Renewable Energy Council during the Solar Energy Forum 2001 in the U.S. capital.
Solar electric systems will be installed in 150 isolated villages in the Philippines, as part of the world's largest solar energy project.
Italy, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Greece and the Netherlands will start a test phase of trading on a continental level under the administration of the Renewable Energy Certificates System (RECS). Green power suppliers in France and Belgium have expressed interest in the system and may join at a later stage.
Price constraints have kept Connecticut energy customers resistant to new electric competition, but one new power company hopes people will look past cost and accept a more environmentally friendly option.
