With strong onshore and offshore turbine sales, Vestas remained the No. 1 supplier in 2014, report finds
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.
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
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.”

Soiling of the panel glass is one of the major problems in the rapidly expanding solar energy market, with the attendant loss of efficiency and reduction in performance ratios. Now, there's a new, simple and very cost-effective alternative. Based on Kipp & Zonen's unique Optical Soiling Measurement (OSM) technology, DustIQ can be easily added to new or existing solar arrays and integrated into plant management systems. The unit is mounted to the frame of a PV panel and does not need sunlight to operate. It continuously measures the transmission loss through glass caused by soiling, so that the reduction in light reaching the solar cells can be calculated.
