In the United States, community solar is a growing phenomenon. Those who live in an apartment or don’t have suitable roofs or land are able to invest in, and benefit from, a larger project. In Japan, investing in a “PV with Lot” is becoming popular among individuals who don’t own land and wish to generate extra income from the nation’s feed-in tariff (FIT).
As renewable sources play an increasingly important role in producing sustainable energy, the need to recognize, define and manage the risks associated with these technologies is an emerging priority. New risks are arising even from renewable technologies that have been used for years, as solar, wind and other projects are pursued on an industrial scale, in new environments and in novel ways. These new exposures underscore the importance of selecting the right risk partner to mitigate operational risks and de-risk with regard to certain financial or regulatory exposures.
The Middle East holds a lot of growth promise for solar energy, particularly large-scale generation. Can solar PV pencil out in this high-DNI region -- especially if you build out most of the entire supply chain there?
When you start a presentation or a report with terms that mean different things to different people, chances are you're not going to be successful in getting your point across. While making sure we use clearly defined and understandable terms seems intuitive, it doesn't always happen. The clean energy community has a ways to go to make sure we're
Mosaic Inc., the operator of an online financing system that lets individuals invest in commercial solar systems, is expanding into residential projects.
Pennsylvania has long been a model of a solar renewable energy credit (SREC) market gone wrong. The market was (and still is) four times oversupplied, and SREC prices fell to $20 in 2013 from $300 in 2010. However, prices have surged to $70, which has many people asking, what is going on in Pennsylvania, and more importantly, will this bust market
Last year, geothermal heat pump (GHP) manufacturers introduced new heat pumps with break-through efficiency based on variable-speed compressor technology. These manufacturers include Waterfurnace Renewable Energy (TSX:WFI, OTC:WFIFF) and ClimateMaster, a division of LSB Industries (NYSE:LXU).
Energy storage and dynamic line ratings are among the evolving technologies poised to have a positive effect of the Texas electrical grid, panelists at TransmissionHub’s TransForum Texas in San Antonio said on Jan. 30.
Traditional biomass accounts for some 9 percent of the world’s total energy requirements, still more than is provided by modern renewables collectively. Nonetheless, modern renewables, and modern biomass with it, is catching up fast. The share of traditional biomass fuels has remained fairly static over the last decade or two, while modern renewables have soared.
The stock market has had a rough five weeks since I introduced my annual Ten Clean Energy Stocks model portfolio on December 27th. My broad market benchmark (the iShares Russell 2000 index) is down 5.6% for the period. Clean energy stocks fared better, with the Powershares WilderHill Clean Energy ETF (NYSE:PBW) down only 0.5% as I write. My model portfolio of ten clean energy stocks is up 0.9% in local currency terms, but the weak Canadian dollar (down 3.5%) and Euro (down 1.5%) turned this into a US dollar decline of 1.0%.
The sizable up-front cost of solar has long been a challenging hurdle. So has rooftop siting — roofs are often shaded, in the wrong orientation, not owned by the people who live there, or otherwise unable to host a solar system. What if we could overcome both of these obstacles with one solution — one local solution? A Colorado credit union and s
The Nevada Hydro Co. filed a tardy Feb. 3 update with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission that said it is making progress on a 600-MW pumped storage hydro project in California.
The modern solar industry was born through off-grid solar, a market which continues to be an important aspect of the industry. Around the world, one in six people live beyond the reach of utility power, but they can rely on off-grid solar systems for electricity. In North America, off-grid solar is especially popular for buildings in remote locatio
Nordex SE, the best performer among Germany’s biggest stocks in 2013, expects its wind-turbine installations in the country to gain as much as 30 percent this year as developers rush to beat a reduction in state subsidies.
A busy couple of days for energy storage on both sides of the meter: WattJoule says it's figuring out how to finally solve the puzzle for reliable cost-competitive vanadium redox flow batteries, Primus Power lands more funding for its own flow batteries, and Green Charge Networks tallies up new customer installations, including many tied to solar energy systems.
Ever since hearing of Saadia Zahidi’s work on gender parity at the World Economic Forum, I have followed the initiative with much enthusiasm. As a woman, I find her work not only refreshing but absolutely indispensable. Despite the world having progressed in so many ways, women worldwide still face a myriad of problems ranging from pay inequality all the way to human rights abuses so gruesome, they cause shock and despair around the world.
Two major players in the U.S. solar industry have joined forces in a move that will leave each one stronger and better able to flourish within its own market sphere. REC Solar announced today that is has sold its residential unit, consisting of Mainstream Energy, AEE Solar and SnapNrack, to longtime partner Sunrun.
The newest king of offshore wind turbines represents not only the latest example of partnership in the offshore wind sector — but also the return of the longtime wind turbine leader.
Vestas Wind Systems A/S (VWS), the world's biggest wind-turbine manufacturer, is seeking to raise capital after a two-year turnaround program dragged the company out of debt and resulted in its first quarterly profit since mid-2011.
By now you’ve probably heard the news about the spectacular job numbers in The Solar Foundation’s 2013 job report. (142,00 industry jobs, plus solar jobs grew by 20%! Woot!) But did you actually read the report? I know, I know. So much to do, so little time, but if you had, you would have a few hidden gems of solar marketing data in there. On page
