Industry praises bipartisan Governors' Wind and Solar Energy Coalition for seeking U.S. agencies' help to site wind projects
The U.S. wind energy industry today welcomed the support of a bipartisan group of 20 governors for further steps by federal agencies that could expedite siting of new wind farms, on land and offshore.

Katherine Tweed for GreenTechMedia: In many parts of the world, wind power is cheap. That is particularly true in the U.S., where onshore wind already rivals the cost of natural gas in some regions. But wind power will likely get even cheaper, according to new research from Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory published in Nature Energy, with contributions from the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, University of Massachusetts, and participants in the International Energy Agency Wind Technology Collaboration Program. The study surveyed more than 160 wind experts across the globe. Many had deep expertise in very specific regions, but the overall findings were similar: The cost of wind will continue to come down through 2030. There are significant variations in the current costs for wind by region, but researchers "found a considerable amount of agreement” in overall reductions as a percentage of that total cost, said lead author Ryan Wiser, a senior scientist at Berkeley Lab.

Polysilicon price is not out of the woods yet with downstream demand remaining a significant concern. The purchasing power of polysilicon buyers has been hampered as the wafer prices see enlarged correction and the domestic demand is also noticeably slower. Unclear order visibility has pressured on polysilicon suppliers to release more price discounts. Although Chinese polysilicon suppliers have tried to curtail production output by conducting annual maintenance, such attempt is unlikely to temper the weakening market sentiments. In addition, as the quarterly financial accounting process approaches, the accumulated inventory pressure also forces polysilicon suppliers to dump excess stocks and sending the price down further.
A World Trade Organization (WTO) appellate body issued a report today affirming the United States victory in the U.S. challenge to India's "localization" rules, which discriminated against imported solar cells and modules under India's National Solar Mission.

SPI 2016 - BYD Showcases "Energy + Solar = Zero Emissions" Vision and Products at Solar Power International Conference in Las Vegas
Visitors to SPI saw two types of BYD solar modules: the Multiple Busbar (MBB) and 4 Busbar modules with 60 or 72 cells; and several Energy Storage solutions including 40-ft container ESS, miniHome ESS and the BYD B-BOX system. BYD currently has more than 60% market share for frequency regulation energy storage in the US.
By Reuters: “We fear a second wave of bankruptcies,” said the head of an association of EU solar producers. A sharp increase in solar power production in China and a sharp fall in domestic demand have sparked a sudden surge of cut-price exports, undermining a China-EU agreement to limit damage to European producers. China produced 27 gigawatts (GW) of solar photovoltaic (PV) modules in the first half of 2016, an increase of 37.8 percent and installed 20 GW of new solar power capacity in the same period, three times as much as the same period a year ago. However, demand has since tailed off. Solar projects operational since July face a reduced price paid by grid operators for their power. Cont'd...
