Forecasting PV market demand in European countries has at times been particularly challenging. Complications include demand being largely policy-driven, the lack of market caps, and downstream channels being adept in shifting high inventories rapidly to the end-market when motivated to do so. During the past two years however, means of forecasting end-market PV demand have improved considerably. The methodology can in fact be seen as an evolving process, and PV market demand in Greece can be used to explain these points.
The East African hotbed called the Rift Valley is already validated in the global geothermal sector by successful operations in Kenya and beyond nearby borders, and is poised to be one of the fastest growing and sustained geothermal markets in the world in the coming decades.
Preliminary rankings of global wind installation capacity show something not seen in 12 years: longtime market leader Vestas looking up at someone else.
Over the last year, the New York market has emerged as a solar hot spot. Several state and local incentive programs have been adopted or expanded, and the state now ranks 12th in terms of solar installed capacity, according to the most recent U.S. Solar Market Insight Report. Positive momentum continues in the state, and 2013 will be an even more p
With solar trade tensions still high between the US and China, now there's another front in the competitive global solar marketplace -- the U.S. has formally filed a complaint with the World Trade Organization over portions of India's National Solar Mission that spell out domestic content requirements.
A stripped-down wind-energy proposal backed by Maryland's governor and gaining support in its legislature may be the first step in creating a network of offshore turbines and sub-sea cables spanning the U.S. Atlantic coast.
German Economy Minister Philipp Roesler stepped up demands for extra cuts to subsidies for wind and solar power providers, aggravating a clash with his Environment Ministry Cabinet colleague over the nation's energy overhaul.
Suddenly everyone knows about Germany’s solar power dominance because Fox Newsheads made fools of themselves, suggesting that the country is a sunny, tropical paradise. Most media folks have figured out that there are some monster differences in policy (e.g. a feed-in tariff), but then latch on to the “Germans pay a lot extra” meme. Germans do, a
Technological advances, particularly in onshore wind power, have moved the wind sector onto a more level playing field, making it competitive with traditional energy sources. More expert engineers are being employed to develop next generation technology, like larger offshore turbines (6 MW - 10 MW), and turbines capable of operating at much lower wind speeds inland, for example.
The District of Columbia Council once again expressed its support for the solar industry by recognizing and eliminating one of the potential barriers to building solar in the District. In December, 2012, the DC Council approved and enacted legislation that would allow for solar energy systems to be exempt from the personal property tax. The Energy
A few weeks ago, I checked my stats here on Renewable Energy World and was surprised to learn that I’d crossed the million page view mark.* Wow! And thanks for reading. Former REWorld editor Stephen Lacey first noticed my work on SolarPowerRocks.com, where I started my solar social media career. Renewable Energy World was just starting this blog
Rules to cut greenhouse-gas emissions from operating U.S. power plants will be a boon for companies willing to invest in clean energy, said Carol Browner, a former Environmental Protection Agency administrator.
Germany’s environment minister Peter Altmaier has unexpectedly proposed cost-sharing measures to lower the consumer burden of the Energiewende. Yet as he's designed it, no one will line up behind the plan. Such politicking will likely backfire in the long run. After months of waffling, Altmaier unexpectedly opened the election year debate over the
National Grid recently announced their 2013 enrollment schedule and pricing for Rhode Island’s feed-in tariff program, also known as Distributed Generation Standard Contracts. The program was created by an act of the same name in June 2011. In aggregate, it calls for a total of 40MW in new renewable energy procurement by 2014, with 10MW slated for
Engineers working at the Vehicle Testing and Integration Facility (VTIF) enjoy a stunning view of the Denver skyline. However, some days the view includes Denver's 'brown cloud' — air pollution caused in part by vehicle emissions. While disheartening, the brown cloud helps the engineers focus on future technologies that will drastically reduce — and ultimately eliminate — those emissions.
Events unfolding in two U.S. Northeast states – New York and Massachusetts – signal increased business opportunity for energy efficiency companies, green architects, lighting contractors, smart grid innovators and others in the business of saving energy. First, the energy efficiency world should keep an eye on debate over the possible shutdown of t
Wind is now cheaper than fossil fuels in producing electricity in Australia, the world's biggest coal exporter, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.
Japan's biggest banks are following Goldman Sachs Group Inc. into domestic solar-power projects, anticipating an eightfold increase for investments in the industry.
Today’s decision by the U.S. government to challenge India’s Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission (National Solar Mission) local content requirement at the World Trade Organization (WTO) highlights a growing problem in the solar industry — the growth of localization barriers to trade. In particular, local content provisions provide preferential
