A Less-Than-Totally-Addressable Market Commercial solar can be an extremely difficult, uphill sell. Not only must a salesperson overcome traditional customer barriers of ignorance, indifference, or fear, with a product that can seem formidably technical, but they have to do so in what is to date an inordinately small addressable market. Consider a
Latin America has one of the world’s brightest solar power market outlooks. High power prices and volatile fuel supplies have made solar cheaper than fossil fuels in many countries, driving new investment and capacity additions. Chile, Uruguay, and Costa Rica were three of the just seven nations worldwide to show an increase in renewable energy financing in 2013, according to Bloomberg New Energy Finance (BNEF).
Thin-film solar panel prices climbed to an 11-month high after U.S. regulators proposed new tariffs that would close a loophole on Chinese-made modules.
Brazil is drafting local-content policies designed to spur the development of a domestic solar- manufacturing industry.
From parades, fairs and backdoor BBQs to sporting events, pontificating politicians and splashy fireworks displays, Independence Day is associated with a dazzling display of events celebrating the history, government and traditions of the United States.
Global Solar Expansion: Mega Solar PV Manufacturing Plants (Reportedly) in the Works from East to West
Whether it is in reaction to international trade conflicts, booming local demand for solar, or the firm belief that solar PV will soon be a dominant player in the energy market, recent company announcements highlight the great promise that solar holds as a manufacturing and power producing engine worldwide.
India’s ambition to skip a generation of electricity technology starting with solar panels on telecommunications towers is being hampered by dust and urban sprawl.
Last month, Innergex Renewable Energy invited the Clean Energy Canada team to tour its Ashlu Creek Hydro Project — a run-of-river renewable-energy plant about 35 kilometres northeast of Squamish, British Columbia.
Utility companies were originally allowed as a public service and were not-for-profit. It was never intended that this public service be a money making business, let alone one of the largest and wealthiest in the country.
The Australian government’s A$10 billion ($9.4 billion) clean-energy bank is set to announce a number of solar deals in the next week as it looks at investments in industries from mining to manufacturing.
Residential solar is booming in the U.S., driven primarily by the lease/power buying business model. This model appeals to the energy consumer’s desire for a degree of independence from utility rate hikes and allows the consumer to continue renting electricity instead of making the shift to owning the means of electricity production.
Chinese solar panel makers have taken an important step to solving their ongoing trade spat with the west by formally launching a private sector trade association to speak on their behalf. The move gives the panel makers their first truly commercial representative to discuss the matter with peers in the U.S. and Europe, providing a better alternati
Georgia small-business owner Julian Smith keeps hearing that the Obama administration’s latest climate regulations will drive up local electric bills. He doesn’t believe the prediction, but he isn’t arguing: The fears are doing wonders for his solar-panel installation company.
An agreeable reporter from KPBS San Diego visited with the Digest this past week while working on a short segment, contrasting the progress of algae companies today to the promise seen when the BIO International Convention last visited San Diego in 2008.
With so many day-to-day concerns vying for attention, many farmers may not have the time to stop and research alternative ways to address their energy needs and rising utility costs. While having heard that renewable energies, such as solar or wind energy, are becoming increasingly popular, there does not seem to be a way for them to reap the benefits without a significant amount of capital available. However, due to advancements in technology and market availability due to new leasing models, distributed generation is changing the way farmers gain access to and manage their cost of power.
Cape Wind Associates LLC received a conditional $150 million loan guarantee from the U.S. Department of Energy for its project off the coast of Massachusetts.
“Why would you build a power plant so close to such a great spa facility?” This is frequently the first question people ask when visiting Iceland’s Blue Lagoon. This is a valid question, and there is a very logical reason for the location of Blue Lagoon, one of the 25 wonders of the world, according to National Geographic. Rather ironically, the B
Renewable energy may reap as much as two-thirds of the $7.7 trillion in investment forecast for building new power plants by 2030 as declining costs make it more competitive with fossil fuels.
China’s environment is in a deplorable state, a nasty byproduct of the most successful spurt of economic growth in world history. Hardly a month passes without more vivid examples of how air, water and soil pollution threatens the health of millions of Chinese and undermines the quality of life that the Chinese worked so hard to achieve over the last decades.
The PennWell Hydro Group is pleased to announce the inaugural class of recipients of the Women with Hydro Vision award.
