Industry chalks up big announcements in second quarter of 2016
Antony Michels for Yahoo Finance: David Schaefer wants to sell $50,000 kites to farmers to help them generate electricity by harnessing the power of the wind. Schaefer, 54, is the CEO of eWind Solutions, a Beaverton, Oregon, company he founded in 2013 after quitting his job as director of mechanical engineering at Xerox. “Imagine when you were a kid in a field flying the kite,” Schaefer says. “When the wind picks up you remember feeling that pull on the string. Well that pull is really energy. That’s what we’re doing. We’re harnessing that energy.” Cont'd...

The paper titled, "Rate Design for a Distributed Grid," describes a wide range of benefits for all consumers that come from distributed energy resources such as rooftop solar. These benefits include reduced need for electric generation, transmission and distribution capacity, lower energy costs, and reduced price volatility.
Following is a statement from Sean Gallagher, vice president of state affairs for the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA), on the unanimous settlement filed today to resolve El Paso Electric's 2015 rate case:
Since clouds, atmosphere and nighttime are absent in space, satellite-based solar panels would be able to capture and transmit substantially more energy than terrestrial solar panels.

The prices of both multi-crystalline and mono-crystalline modules continue to tumble this week. The slower demand in China has triggered fears over solar market turbulence, not just in China but across the Asia, with contagious spillovers to the global markets. The solar panel prices in China have experienced a great pressure as the competition among the suppliers become extremely intense in order to compete for limited solar projects especially after more domestic production capacities ramped up by Chinese 2nd tier suppliers. Meanwhile, in order to digest the excess stockpiles that left from slow China demand, the 2nd tier Chinese module suppliers also intend to strengthen its presences in the key solar markets, India and SEA where no punitive tariff are enforced. Hence, solar panel prices in these regions have seen fierce price competition with price quotes around $0.40/watt.

Timothy Cama for The Hill: The Obama administration is making a new large-scale effort to encourage deployment and use of rooftop solar power on homes. Numerous agencies announced new or strengthened coordinated efforts Tuesday aimed at increasing solar installations in houses owned by low- and moderate-income Americans, including a new goal for solar installations and a policy change to increase access to a key financing mechanism for solar power and energy efficiency. “This is an approach that cuts across the government to try to take advantage of the fact that the cost of renewable technologies has come down dramatically during President Obama’s tenure, and we want to advantage of that a try to encourage more homeowners to actually benefit directly from that dynamic,” Brian Deese, a top adviser to Obama, told reporters. The administration is dubbing the effort the “Clean Energy for All Americans Initiative.” Cont'd...
In a perfect world, all industries and applications would be fuelled by renewable energy and provide us with sustainable power. Unfortunately, there are many problems to resolve before industries can fully rely on a consistently sustainable source of power.
