The Power-Gen 2013 Women in Power committee is pleased to announce the finalists for the first Power-Gen Woman of the Year Award.
The Democratic Republic of Congo is open to more investors joining three groups of companies bidding to construct the $12 billion Inga 3 hydropower project, Energy Minister Bruno Kapandji said.
Two more bits of news this week reiterate how unforgiving the solar PV manufacturing industry is: First Solar is finally giving up hope for its as-yet unused plant in Arizona, while SolarWorld reportedly is consolidating more operations and shaking up its top exec ranks.
Norwegian research shows that it is perfectly possible for rivers to produce more salmon and electricity at the same time: a new environmental handbook shows the way.
As the solar panel sector continues its painful overhaul, signals are emerging about who will survive the downturn and thrive when the industry returns to health. Canadian Solar (Nasdaq: CSIQ) certainly seems to be one of the strongest players coming out of the retrenchment, with word that the company has sold 4 more plants that it constructed to p
Solar start-ups are hot again — especially those that address the "downstream" part of the value chain: installer services, customer acquisition, system design tools and analytical systems. And as in years past, there are a dozens of companies showing new types of solar panels, trackers, racking systems and integrated systems.
Part one of this series examined the problem of incorporating securitization debt into a financial structure with its highly sensitive tax attributes — that is, how the legal structure of a securitization transaction contains certain elements that may trigger a recapture of the tax incentives, thus diminishing the value of a tax equity partner's investment.
Last week, SEIA presented a great video webinar about solar social media, a rare topic in the solar webinar world. In case you missed it, the full video is below. Speaking on Google+ Hangout (a free webinar service) were solar marketing pros David Almacy, senior vice president of international PR firm Edelman; Jason Deelstra, marketing director at
SolarCity is acquiring Zep Solar and its rackless mounting design in a $158 million stock deal, illustrating the growing importance of improving costs and complexity in residential solar.
The U.K. may bring in sustainability criteria to prevent “inappropriate” solar parks from receiving subsidies if tougher planning guidelines don’t work, Energy Minister Greg Barker said.
Farmers in Japan can now generate solar electricity while growing crops on the same farmland. In April, the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries (MAFF) approved the installation of PV systems on existing crop-producing farmland. Previously solar generation on farmland, productive or idle, was prohibited under the Agricultural Land Act.
Renewable energy finance is complicated — so is securitization. Fitting them together calls for some clever financial and legal engineering. This article is the first in a two-part series on the issue of commingling securitization debt and tax equity in the same project or portfolio capital structure. This first article will assess the challenge; the second installment will look at two proposed solutions.
When a big box store, winery, or factory thinks about going solar, they often finance through a solar power purchase agreement (solar PPA). It allows your business to go solar with no upfront costs. But if you’re in California, there’s new way to finance solar with no upfront cost, and it’s called Property Assessed Clean Energy or “PACE.” PACE is a
Project funding and merger and acquisition (M&A) activity in the solar energy sector reached record levels from July-September of this year, reflecting an improved outlook for solar demand, according to a new report from Mercom Capital Group.
“I can remember as a young man driving from Carson City to Reno for the first time and I saw this steam coming out of the ground,” Nevada Senator Harry Reid told the geothermal industry last week. Although the congressman was in Washington DC trying to prevent a government shutdown, as his representative Vinny Spotleson reminded the audience, he and Senator Dean Heller both conveyed their support and appreciation of geothermal via video remarks at the opening plenary session of the GRC Annual Meeting and GEA Geothermal Energy Expo in Las Vegas.
Geothermal industry leaders say they are losing a popularity contest with wind and solar power, but claim they are offering a better product.
In the third quarter, clean energy stocks in general continued their upward trend, turning in a 27 percent gain for the quarter and a 64 percent gain for the year as a whole, as measured by my benchmark and most broadly held clean energy ETF, Powershares Wilderhill Clean Energy (PBW.) This brings PBW back up to levels last seen in September 2011.
Energy Minister Greg Barker said the U.K. can multiply its capacity to produce solar power eight-fold by 2020 in an effort to reduce reliance on fossil fuels.
It's official: California governor Edmund G. "Jerry" Brown has signed Assembly Bill 327, which addresses several topics critical to solar energy in the nation's biggest solar energy state: extending net metering and the renewable energy portfolio standard (RPS).
The New York Independent Service Operator (NYISO) claims it would "support in principle" future exemptions for renewable energy generation in buyer-side mitigation efforts to control new energy generation. It's an example of how renewable energy is paying closer attention to wholesale power markets in several key states.
