The overall goal of the Chinese government is to have 450 MW of cumulative PV power installed in China by 2010. This is in comparison to the estimated 75 MW which was current in 2005.
In August the Energy Policy Act of 2005 was signed into law, creating a new 30% federal tax credit for solar electric and solar hot water systems.
In this paper we outline a possible alternative architecture for a successor regime, based on a single flexible emission reduction target for all countries and the principle of a treaty accession process, such as that which has resulted in other successful multilateral organisations.
North America may be making up for its reluctance to embrace a legislation-driven approach to transforming the use of energy by wholeheartedly nurturing companies pushing the boundaries of innovation in the sector.

Ideally, a home energy controller would be programmed to calculate when loads should be turned on or off. It should also be designed to look at alternate solutions such as closing the window blinds before turning on the air conditioner to cool a room.

If it isn't, it will soon be disabled.
In a survey of high-end entertainment households, when asked about the usefulness and interest of PC-based control services, respondents ranked energy management as the most attractive service option with 54% indicating that they had a strong interest in such a service.
