Solar panel prices continue to slump this week amid the fierce competition in Northern America and the cooling demand in EU. Disparity between supply and demand in the US market results in strong cut-throat competition. As major module suppliers struggle to offer slashed prices in order to maintain high utilization rates and secure more orders, solar panel prices in the US has witnessed an obvious declining. In EU, with the demand for PV installations beginning to wane on the advent of holiday season, solar panel prices are also trending downwards. In India, the intensified competition have sent solar panel prices lower as many module suppliers are trying to compete for the PV projects in 1Q17. Meanwhile, the demand and prices of solar panel in China and Japan remain fairly stable that current module prices stay almost unchanged from last week.

Today the National Renewable Energy Lab (NREL), under the direction and funding of the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), released a first ever technical and economic analysis of distributed wind power's potential in the U.S. Distributed wind typically means smaller wind turbines installed at homes, farms, businesses, and public facilities where they serve to reduce consumer's electric bills. The key finding in the new study is that distributed wind could be installed at millions of locations nationwide and has the technical potential to power the entire U.S. electrical system.
