Securing sufficient capital to enable projects to move forward quickly is crucial to the rapid adoption of solar thermal technology. To help identify innovative funding mechanisms and link its customers more easily to these sources, EnerWorks has appointed Robert Bender as Executive Vice President.
The San Diego Renewable Energy Society and the Solar Living Institute are teaming up to help workers explore & secure green career opportunities. On April 25th they will present the San Diego Green Career Conference at SDSU.
One of the world's biggest photovoltaic projects is planned for southwest Florida. Florida Power & Light will spend $350 million to build a 75-megawatt photovoltaic solar plant at a planned city, Babcock Ranch, near Fort Myers. The plant could be the largest in the world if it reaches 75MW output--before somebody else does. Photovoltaic cells convert sunlight into electricity. Electric vehicles, able to plug in for recharge at convenient community-wide recharging stations, will glide along avenues beneath the glow of solar-powered street lamps.

Company to Develop Thin Film Version of BioBacksheet Due to Growing Interest From Thin Film Solar Manufacturers
This year's Hydrogen Student Design Contest challenged teams of university students from around the world to design a green student center powered by hydrogen for the State University of New York - Farmingdale Campus, using a theoretical budget of $28 million dollars.
As momentum gathers for the creation of an Internet-like "smart grid" that will do for the electricity grid what the Internet did for home shopping, the WSJ reports the cyberspace wars have begun. The big question is whether the move to a smart grid would increase the country's vulnerability to cyber attacks, or serve as the best form of defense. California-based Electric Power Research Institute has been selected by the Commerce Department to draw up the "roadmap" of the new smart grid. Its main task will be figuring out just what standards should prevail in that brave new world.

HVACR training programs across North America try to expand their student's placement opportunities with major employers like Johnson Controls (http://www.johnsoncontrols.com). Many of these employers are now asking that students are trained in new green technologies.
Germany's Reichstag in Berlin is set to become the first parliamentary building in the world to be powered 100 percent by renewable energy. Soon the entire country will follow suit. Germany is accelerating its efforts to become the world's first industrial power to use 100 percent renewable energy -- and given current momentum, it could reach that green goal by 2050. A new Roadmap published by the German Federal Ministry for the Environment sketches out the route the world's largest exporter plans to take to switch over completely to renewable energy, and add 800,000 to 900,000 new cleantech jobs by 2030 as it does so.
The Renewable Energy Centre believes UK carbon emissions should be cut by 42% by 2020.
