Solar and Renewable Energy Trends in 2017

The global transportation fleet is turning electric faster than anyone could have imagined only a year ago.

Update on Energy Storage in the USA

Faster-responding storage allows us to operate the grid more efficiently, instantly balancing fluctuating supply and dynamic demand.

Economics Trumps Policy: Even President Trump Cannot Stop the Renewable Energy Juggernaut

The renewable and energy efficiency industries have created over 2.5 million jobs in the United States. Solar now employs more Americans than than oil, natural gas and coal combined. The nation's fastest growing occupation is, believe it or not, the wind turbine technician; which is still projected to grow 108% in the next 7 years.

Renewed Interest from Traditional Investors in Renewable Energy

Renewables have now reached such a critical mass, utilities can no longer ignore them as a way to augment their capabilities in producing power cheaper, smarter, better. At this point, the tide has turned for utilities and there is no going back.

The Emerging Relationship between Distributed Energy Resources and the Transmission System.

India Focuses on Safety as Country Rapidly Expands Solar Capacity

When new mandatory regulations for photovoltaic products go into effect, manufacturers will have to fast-track compliance.

Renewable Energy Procurement: Trends, Outlook & Strategy

Replacing electricity generated from burning fossil fuels with electricity from wind and solar is a good business strategy

Are We Understating the Potential for (and Uncertainty in) Wind Energy Cost Reductions?

Berkeley Lab study shows greater potential than many other recent assessments.

Small Power, Big Grid: Part 2 - DERs AND REGIONAL LOAD FORECASTING

The Emerging Relationship between Distributed Energy Resources and the Transmission System.

Small Power, Big Grid: Part 1

This series will focus on these questions in the area of transmission planning (regional load forecasting and solutions to identified grid needs), wholesale market design, and facilitation of utility business model reform.

Berkeley Lab Study
Continued Reductions in Wind Energy Costs

Experts anticipate cost reductions of 24%-30% by 2030 and 35%-41% by 2050, under a median or 'best guess' scenario, driven by bigger and more efficient turbines, lower capital and operating costs, and other advancements

Solar on Houses Needed for 2020 Target

In the last ten years, the installed global solar energy capacity has multiplied nearly 50 times. The cost of purchasing and installing a solar panel has decreased by 80 percent in five years and is still falling. The comparable cost of electricity generation has made solar energy the cheapest energy source today, from being the most expensive only six years ago. This is truly a green revolution.

Solarodo - New and Used Solar Equipment Marketplace

We want to use the experience we gained in Europe and create the platform with the biggest product variety in the US.

NREL Research Puts the Wind at an Industry's Back

NREL's ultimate goal in this testing is to foster the technological developments necessary for wider deployment of wind energy in the marketplace at the lowest cost possible.

U.S. ethanol plant capacity increases for third consecutive year

The majority of the 195 ethanol plants, and most of the U.S. fuel ethanol production capacity, are located in the Midwest region
