A couple of items from the struggling solar panel sector are showing how the industry is limping forward, receiving minor rescue loans to continue funding operations while manufacturers await a bigger rescue package from Beijing. I can only guess that the bigger package, which has been talked about for much of the last half year, will finally be ro
The extension of a U.S. wind-power tax credit will temper a plunge in demand for turbines over the next two years, according to the chief of General Electric Co.'s renewable energy unit.
President Obama surprised a lot of people by elevating the climate threat into the top tier of his second-term priorities during his recent inaugural address:
Continuing the crusade to lower solar manufacturing costs, this week 1366 Technologies officially opened its new manufacturing site in Bedford, Mass., a 42,000 square foot facility with 25-megawatt capacity. The site just across the road from fellow solar company Spire, is part of the company's ambitious plans to remove a major chunk of costs and processes out of the solar manufacturing chain, beginning at the very start of the process: the wafer itself.
The Environmental Protection Agency is proposing rules to expand the use of renewable fuels and thwart scams in a program hit by fraud and facing increasing criticisms from U.S. refiners.
Welcome to the confusing and somewhat chaotic world of credentialing! Last month, the result of a marathon endeavor, the Interstate Renewable Energy Council (IREC) reached two national milestones in our commitment to credentialing in renewable energy and energy efficiency. Our goal – standardized quality training matched with employer needs – train
I always enjoy sitting down with solar industry leaders and discussing their perspectives on where solar is headed. Last fall, I had the opportunity to sit down with Scott Wiater, President of Standard Solar. Standard Solar has seen a lot of change in the solar industry—and for itself. Founded in 2004 before the 2007 solar boom, Standard has…well…
