Next Generation of PV is emerging NOW!

I think the PV industry will TRIPLE in size in the next 4 years and I think the Thin Film segment of the PV industry will increase over TEN FOLD in the next 4 years.

On Energy Supply, Human Population, Earth's Climate, and Financial Prosperity

By grouping appropriate items together in summary fashion, we see that 48% of energy is used in the home, in one form or another. The next big use is the 44% that is used at work in various forms. Finally, a final 8% is used in transport.

Photovoltaic Cost Comparisons

It is unimaginable to me that a technologically advanced civilization would readily commit environmental and economic suicide when we have most of the necessary clean tech tools already developed. Not effectively leveling this cost comparison playing field now is one step closer to that potential unimaginable outcome.

Solar market boom in California; Silicon Valley centre of new PV industry?

It can be concluded that the USA is on its way back to the frontline of the global PV industry and market developments. With new upcoming markets not only in California, but also in other US states and countries like Spain, Italy and Greece, a further growth of the global PV market of at least 30% per year for the coming years seems likely

The Renewable Energy Centre Discusses the Future of Water Recycling

With ever increasing temperatures, less rainfall and a summer hosepipe ban a likely possibility this year, The Renewable Energy Centre discusses water recycling and how useful it will be to us in the future?

Who Killed the Electric Car - Review

Although GM puts up a good argument as to why they did not mass produce the EV1, one cannot help wonder why a corporate giant with the profits of GM could not see the tremendous potential in the EV1 and due further research on the car.

Worried about the Energy Crisis?

I am no longer worried. Now that I understand there is no energy crisis, no ingenuity crisis, only the need for well-meaning bureaucracies to adapt policies to rapidly changing assumptions, I am terrified.
