Writing in The Telegraph last week, Ambrose Evans-Pritchard cited theU.S. Department of Energy as the basis for a prediction that the cost of solar power would drop by 75% between 2010 and 2020. Evans-Pritchard writes: The US Energy USEG +2 .12% Department expects the cost of solar power to fall by 75% between 2010 and 2020. By then average costs will have dropped to the $1 per watt for big solar farms, $1.25 for offices and $1.50 for homes, achieving the Holy Grail of grid parity with new coal and gas plants without further need for subsidies. Evans-Pritchard mentions several development projects sponsored by the U.S. Department of Defense as representative of the broader research effort that will drive costs down costs and drive efficiencies up. Over the past few years, the cost of solar power systems has plunged as the result of what some folks have characterized as Chinese “dumping.” For better or worse, I am among those “folks” who suspect that anti-competitive trade practices have fueled overly optimistic forecasts of future costs reductions. Excluding these trade-induced (and temporary) cost reductions, is it possible that solar costs could reduce costs 75% by 2020?
WORLD OF ENERGY SOLUTIONS 2013: Batteries and hydrogen have immense potential as energy storage media
Energy storage media are to help compensate for fluctuations in the power grid. From 30 September to 2 October 2013, industry experts will be presenting a variety of solutions at the f-cell, BATTERY+STORAGE, e-mobil BW TECHNOLOGIETAG and Solar Energy Solutions conferences in Stuttgart, Germany.
Despite the uncertain lay of the political land, consumption of biofuels within the EU rose in 2012. Biofuel use in the transport sector rose to 14.4 million tonnes last year which represents a rise of 0.4 million since 2011. There were 14 countries, including Finland, France, Sweden and Spain, which increased their use of biofuels but another 10, including Hungary, the UK and Poland did not.
Clenergy worked with the project's EPC company to deliver a tailor-made, C-steel mounting solution including installation service for a 20.6MW solar PV project in China's Yanqi County. The project is the county's first utility scale solar power plant.
The global NDT equipment market registered good growth during 2007-2012. The market is forecast to reach $2.052 billion by 2018 and continue its growth through 2018, propelled by strong growth of infrastructural and industrial development.

Soltec manufactures and supplies solar trackers designed and proven for extreme climate conditions, which is an ideal solution for any region's environment. Soltec's trackers are self-powered, requiring no additional PV module or grid-powered connection. Bifacial modules collect energy on both the front and rear sides, capturing reflected irradiance from the ground surface under and around the tracker and from other modules. Depending on site conditions, bifacial yield-gain can reach +30 percent.
