PVinsights: The increasing demand helps solar price improvement or relief.

Overall Module price performed a mild drop this week, as global demand is gradually recovering since late May. Multi-crystalline module price stands still in China, as the demand is improving slowly. In the US, solar demand is promisingly increasing, although some solar module suppliers are trying to raise price quotes accordingly.

Coal-based Power Undermines Germany's Renewable Growth to 2025, says GlobalData

Germany's installed renewable energy capacity to increase from 86.2 Gigawatts (GW) in 2014 to 147.4 GW by 2025---- However, renewables' intermittent nature means the country will return to coal power generation, adding 3 GW of capacity by 2020, says analyst

Investment In Renewable Energy Yields More Jobs Than Fossil Fuel Sector

Joshua S Hill for CleanTechnica:  A new report has determined that investments in energy-efficient and renewable energy sources yield more jobs for a set amount of spending than investing in maintaining or expanding the fossil fuel industry.

[wind turbine cowboy jobs] The report, Global Green Growth: Clean Energy Industrial Investment and Expanding Job Opportunities, was published earlier this week and presented at the Vienna Energy Forum 2015 by its two authors, the Global Green Growth Institute (GGGI) and the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO).

“Significant progress has already been made in overcoming the hitherto conventional wisdom that taking steps to cut GHGs is incompatible with economic growth,” said Yvo de Boer, Director-General of GGGI. “This report moves the debate another positive step forward by showing that employment and development result from sustainable, green growth.”

PVinsights : Lower-than-expected demand empowers the poly-silicon price correction.

The unexpected slow demand and the aggressive price competition accelerate poly-silicon price downtrend. At the moment, China domestic demand seems to perform lower than expected. Without the strong demand recovery, Non-Chinese poly-silicon manufacturers, especially American, are still doing the price competition and dumping their products in the market, due to their concerns on the upcoming Chinese anti-dumping final ruling.
