Historical events have a way of jolting us – again and again and again – into the reminder that energy plays a big role in our well-being.
The bullish news from Deutsche Bank on the solar industry's strong prospects for 2014 will come as welcome relief after this year's trade-war turmoil. But emerging concerns about supply constraints on the back of the fast-growing markets in China and Japan merit a note of caution and underline the need for all firms in the global solar supply chain to adopt a balanced international strategy, spreading risk between different markets.
Chinese solar PV module manufacturer Suntech has been struggling for some time now. Once a leader in the PV industry, the company declared bankruptcy last March and in September announced that is was re-organizing its operations.
Spring is most definitely in the air this week for embattled solar panel makers, with Canadian Solar (Nasdaq: CSIQ) and Shunfeng Photovoltaic (HKEx: 1165) emerging as new sector leaders with different pieces of upbeat news. From my perspective the Canadian Solar news is the most exciting, even though some may say it doesn’t come as a big surprise.
Solar Central, the news hub of the annual Solar Power International U.S. gathering, served as the focal point for a trend at this year’s show – the discussion of women inside and outside the industry and their impact on the growth of solar. Our presentation, Shining a Solar Marketing Light on Women, was comprised of four components: Feedback from
Microsoft vs. Apple wars have played out in the electronics industry for decades. That bitter competitive landscape, though, has changed significantly in this digital age with Apple's iUbiquity.
While the 377-megawatt Ivanpah Solar Energy Generating System is a star among the solar community, the project recently got to be a star in another way. The Denver-based rock band, The Fray, used the monolithic solar project as the background for their latest video “Love Don’t Die,” which features a kaleidoscope of swirling images as the band walks
Next week, renewable energy stakeholders from all across the world, representing all facets of the industry, will head to Orlando, Florida for one of the best all-inclusive renewable energy events of the year. Renewable Energy World Conference and Expo North America, co-located with POWER-GEN International (celebrating its 25th anniversary), Nuclea
The SEC has finally proposed its rules to allow crowd-funding under the Jumpstart Our Business Startups (JOBS) Act. What do they mean for small-scale investments in renewable energy companies and projects?
NRG Yield (NYSE:NYLD) was spun out of its parent, NRG Energy, Inc. (NYSE:NRG) in July, and has since been greeted with enthusiasm by investors. The stock priced at $22, 10 percent over the mid-point of its expected range, and the underwriters exercised their full over-allotment option.
Companies that make biofuels from corn husks, soy and other materials are mounting a last-ditch lobbying campaign to prevent a weakening of the U.S. renewable-fuel mandate, saying a lower requirement would set back an industry that is ready to blossom.
South Africa approved 33.8 billion rand ($3.3 billion) for 17 clean energy projects in the third of five bidding rounds of a program to cut its reliance on coal.
The graph below comes from “Geothermal Handbook: Planning and Financing Power Generation,” World Bank, 2012. Authors Magnus Gehringer and Victor Loksha write: “To better understand the nature of the risks that are specific to geothermal power, it is helpful to consider the project cost and risk profile through the various stages of project developm
When investing considerable resources in a distributed wind energy project, doesn’t it make sense to at least evaluate the minimum criteria?
XEMC Darwind has ambitious plans to enter the main European onshore wind markets with two new 4.5- and 5-MW direct drive turbines based on its 5-MW offshore XD115/5-MW model. XEMC Darwind’s CEO Hugo Groenemans explained the new turbine’s technology specifics and benefits, which include merging Chinese supply chain strengths with job creation and localized industrialization.
Former solar energy pioneer Suntech (NYSE: STP) is getting caught in an increasingly complex web of global forces as it tries to emerge from bankruptcy, with the latest coming from its hometown of Wuxi and from a bankruptcy court in New York. While such tugs-of-war probably aren’t uncommon in such a complex case, Suntech’s strong international conn
Several U.S. Senators are resurrecting legislation seeking to create a national Renewable Energy Standard (RES), while more proposed RPS changes crop up in some quieter markets.
The International Energy Agency (IEA) has declared that feed-in tariffs are the principal driving force in the worldwide development of solar photovoltaics (solar PV). While possibly stating the obvious, it’s always good to see official confirmation of one’s own observations.
U.S. utilities agreed to buy 7.6 gigawatts of wind capacity this year through September, as construction in 2013 slowed to a trickle after a federal tax credit expired at the end of 2012, the American Wind Energy Association said.
The Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E) program was officially launched in 2009 as the result of the 2007 America COMPETES Act, which was signed by President George W. Bush. Congress appropriated and President Barack Obama allocated $400 million in 2009 to begin funding the agency’s first projects. ARPA-E exists within the broader organizational framework of the Department of Energy and was modeled after the very successful Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), which has been credited with developing technological innovations such GPS (global positioning system), the stealth fighter jet and more.
