In the U.S. insider trades are easily found on the SEC website, stock exchange websites, and financial aggregation sites. Not so in Canada. A search for insider trades for a Toronto-listed stock on Google will turn up financial aggregation websites, but they don’t have any data.
Chinese solar photovoltaic (PV) manufacturing, specifically crystalline solar PV, have dominated the industry's total global production for the past several years. But a new report co-produced by NREL and MIT suggests the real reasons for regional price differences are not indigenous -- meaning China's current competitive advantages can be matched.
The growth of the solar industry cannot continue without cultivating current students and rising college graduates. Residential solar capacity has increased dramatically in the past few years and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) forecasts that 75 percent of the U.S. solar market will attain grid-parity by 2015. This means that more h
Three weeks ago India's Union Cabinet of Ministers officially approved the revived generation-based incentive (GBI) scheme that was pulled off the table 17 months ago, with some minor changes including low-interest financing, an offshore wind authority, and an increase in the total subsidy a wind plant can claim (INR 10 million/US $160,000, up from INR 6.2 million/$100,000).
Global demand for wind turbines is expected to drop by as much as 5 percent this year for the first time since 2004, new analysis has found.
Delays in opening French hydropower contracts to competition will cost local governments hundreds of millions of euros in royalties, the state auditor said.
Uruguay is accepting bids for its first two large-scale solar farms as the nation seeks to take advantage of falling panel prices, replicating a strategy it’s using for wind energy.
Businesses and consumers alike are quickly beginning to realise that the true value of solar PV lies in the long-term energy cost savings that systems can deliver, rather than just the benefits from the government incentives. This will become increasingly more evident as, over time, financial incentives will become smaller and energy costs will rise.
You’re watching a scary movie, and the main character is going to open that door or push that button that we all know they shouldn’t push. If you feel the character’s fear and “jump” when a ghost or an innocent kitty cat comes out of the closet, congratulations. You’re human, and you are feeling the effects of the brain’s mirror neurons. Before I g
“It’s the only time I’ve done a rate increase when nobody was opposed,” says Ed Regan of the Gainesville utility’s feed-in tariff for solar power. The program, launched in 2009, has resulted in nearly 15 megawatts of new, local solar energy generation on or near buildings in the northeast Florida town, enough to make it one of the leading communit
China’s solar market faces “chaos and uncertainties” in the near future, but looming consolidation won’t impair the nation’s dominance of the global solar landscape, new analysis has found.
The rising current account deficit (CAD) of India is likely to derail the country’s ambitious National Solar Mission (NSM).
Several solar panel companies are in the headlines once again, led by an news that bankrupt former superstar Suntech (NYSE: STP) is nearing a reorganization that will cost its stockholders most of their money. While that may sound bad, I personally don’t have much sympathy for anyone who continued to hold Suntech stock after the company started exp
It's been a busy summer for me and my Ten Clean Energy Stocks for 2013 model portfolio. While I delayed my monthly update, the companies in the model portfolio have been very busy reporting (and restating) earnings. Overall, the portfolio was flat for July and August, with 1.2 percent of dividends offsetting a 1.1 percent decline in stock prices. This put it further behind my benchmarks, the iShares Russell 2000 Index (IWM) for the broad market, and the Powershares Wilderhill Clean Energy Index (PBW) for clean energy stocks. These each notched up 2 percent over the last two months. For the year to August 30th, my model portfolio is up 10.6 percent, compared to 22.5 percent and 37.9 percent for IWM and PBW, respectively.
By 2025, wind and solar electric generation could be cost-competitive with new natural gas-fired electric generation without federal subsidies in the Western U.S., according to a new report from the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL). That’s if renewable energy development occurs in the most productive locations and the report takes into c
In 2012 renewable energy — largely wind and solar — accounted for nearly 50 percent of all new electric generation put on the U.S. grid. According to a new Ernst & Young report, United States renewable energy attractiveness indices, 13.1 gigawatts of wind were added to the grid last year, as was 3.3 gigawatts of photovoltaics (PV). “While overall U
The solar PV industry has experienced phenomenal growth and widespread popularity as an alternative source for creating electricity. Government policies and incentives have proven to be important enablers to industry growth. However, incentives can’t continue forever and the industry needs to continue to drive down total costs in order to remain competitive to alternative energy sources and open new markets. As industries and products mature they learn how to drive down costs through ever greater application of “plug-n-play.”
The rupee’s biggest plunge in 20 years is endangering the recovery of India’s $1.6 billion wind power industry as higher finance and import costs negate benefits from a government subsidy restored last month.
LDK Solar’s delay in paying debt and Suntech Power Holdings’ attempts to renegotiate obligations are prompting investors to gird for losses as US$8.4 billion comes due by the end of next year.
A key development in linking the two offshore wind farms Nordsee Ost and Meerwind to the German mainland has been completed according to Siemens, which says it has installed the HelWin1 offshore platform in the North Sea.
