Wind, solar, and other renewable energy sources now make up just about 10 percent of the nation's electricity supply, but transitioning to 100 percent clean energy is both necessary and feasible.
"Leading corporations from around the world have joined hands to help the Global Solar Council (GSC) accelerate the deployment of clean, reliable, emissions-free solar energy," said John Smirnow, GSC Secretary General. "This diverse group of companies will provide advice and counsel to the GSC on opening markets and building solar capacity."
Residential rooftop solar grew 66 percent in the U.S. last year. That means more consumer marketers and salespeople in the marketplace. More meetings with contractors and solar salespeople. More information to understand and more confusion.
Emily J. Gertz for TakePart: Filmmaker Shalini Kantayya set out to show that climate change isn’t all gloom and doom. The result, Catching the Sun, ably makes that case but may still leave you inspired and infuriated in equal parts. This fast-paced and compelling new documentary, which premieres Friday in New York City and in cities nationwide during April, follows a diverse group of job seekers, activists, politicians, and entrepreneurs as they tap into the world’s growing solar powereconomy. Kantayya jumps between nations that have unequivocally adopted policies to speed up adoption of renewables and more fitful efforts here in the United States to expand solar energy—from a program in Richmond, Virginia, training unemployed men and women to become solar panel installers to a “Green Tea Party” member and energy independence advocate working both sides of the halls of power in Georgia.

Revolutionising the way clients view and manage their information, Natural Power has launched a new software tool, Portal, which can be used anywhere there is an internet connection.
Scientists at the Energy Department's National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) and SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory have been able to pinpoint for the first time what happens during a key manufacturing process of silicon solar cells.
BayWa r.e.'s national dealer network will have access to Spruce loan products that help them grow their businesses and empower consumers to control their energy choices.
Ben Walsh for The Huffington Post: There is a “substantial risk” that SunEdison may file for bankruptcy, the world’s largest renewable energy developer said in a regulatory filing on Tuesday. The company’s fall isn’t a referendum on the solar industry as a whole, as much as it is on SunEdison’s aggressive growth strategy fueled by excessive debt and financial engineering, analysts say. SunEdison “just thought they were smarter than everyone else,” said David Levine, the founder and CEO of Geostellar, a solar energy marketplace that has done deals with the company. The company’s shares have fallen steeply since they hit a high of $30 in July. They were at just $1.26 before the filing. The stock immediately dropped another 40 percent when the market opened after the filing, and the company was trading at just $0.59 by Tuesday lunchtime. “What happened from late-2014 to the middle of 2015, the company began embarking on a hyper-growth strategy,” S&P analyst Angelo Zino told The Huffington Post.

Clenergy's 20MW photovoltaic power station successfully connected on December 28 to the grid in Guyang, Inner Mongolia, capping months of hard work.
"This historic announcement shows the U.S. is in the market for climate solutions that work. Wind power is one of the biggest, fastest, cheapest ways the U.S. can reduce carbon pollution. Through deploying more wind energy, we can cut out a tenth of the nation's entire carbon footprint by the year 2030 and keep more money in the pockets of American consumers while doing so.
Merrimack NH -- Oztek Corp announces the release of their OZipTM Intelligent Power Module, elevating integrated power to the next level. OZip IPM goes beyond simple digital protection and fault management with inclusion of a 32-bit floating-point processor running highly configurable application control code. It operates with DC link voltages up to 850V and continuous phase currents up to 250ARMS. Available in IP55 rated, forced-air and liquid-cooled configurations, OZip IPM accommodates a wide range of power control applications.
Increased consumer adoption of renewable-energy technologies has led to a rise in public utilities' use of net energy metering (NEM), a model under which consumers who generate their own electricity earn credit for the power they sell back to the grid.
Phase II of initiative focuses on practical steps toward solar, DER integration
Panasonic HIT® panels recently set a world record for conversion efficiency at the research level (laboratory), a full percentage point increase over the previous record.
Li-ion solutions are both scalable and flexible in their power-to-energy ratio. The flexibility enables MTR-type solutions for high-power smoothing, medium-power options for shaping renewable output to meet a forecast, and high-energy systems for shifting of renewable energy to periods of peak load.

The GreenFasten™ - GF1 system utilizes the patented watertight technology EcoFasten Solar® is known for. The flashing is fit with our EPDM rubber bushing and when used with a compatible EcoFasten Solar compression bracket (milled with countersink), a watertight seal is created, which protects the integrity of the roof. Requiring just a single fastener (lag bolt or self-drilling), GreenFasten provides the fastest install in the industry and will not void roofing manufacturer's warranties. Backed by IAPMO certification, GreenFasten delivers a mounting solution for all new or existing (retrofit) composition shingle roofs, and is the most cost-effective solution available. Like all of the solar roof mount solutions in our line of products, GreenFasten is made in the USA using recycled materials.
