Whether it's saving every electricity customer money or hardening our infrastructure against climate change, it's hard to imagine another project right now that looks as appealing, practical and unifying as developing a national energy grid.
With the support of industry leaders, the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) and The Solar Foundation today are unveiling the Solar Automated Permit Processing (SolarAPP) initiative, which will streamline permitting and slash the cost of solar installations.
Awardees will develop energy storage systems to provide reliable, affordable power to the electric grid for up to 100 hours, enhancing grid resilience and performance.
According to BEIS figures published in March 2017, it looks like the UK is progressing nicely and it on its way to meeting this target, with carbon emissions having dropped overall by 42 per cent since 1990.
CEA Releases 2018 Solar Energy Report; Finds Incentives Contributed Significantly to Solar Power Expansion
Report Highlights Effects of Incentive Programs on Solar Market and Future Reexamination of Solar Policies
Proposed action to bail out nuclear, coal plants is misguided, would hurt consumers
We conclude that a National Energy Experts Committee (NEEC) should be established under ministry of energy consisting of Energy experts from Academia, Industry, Business, Associations/NGOs and International Experts.
We anticipate that next year, there will be a break from the steady industry growth experienced during the past decade. Its unfortunate because solar has been a bright spot with job and economic growth year after year.
Some analysts have predicted that renewables will make up the greatest part of the nations energy portfolio in spite of any policies that are implemented.
Climate Action: The mega project will cover approximately 890 acres (365 hectares) - an area equivalent to more than 400 football pitches.
Keith Schneider for The Los Angeles Times: The trade commissions decision will be transmitted to President Trump on Nov. 13. Whatever the outcome, the tariff case has riven the $30-billion U.S. solar sector.
Nichola Groom for Reuters: The 10 fastest-growing U.S. solar markets between the second quarters of 2016 and 2017 were Western, Midwestern or Southern states that voted for Trump.
The solar sector is reeling from confusion, and stock prices are reeling right along with it.
Jess Shankleman for Bloomberg Technology: The European Union may create 716,000 jobs with a target for member states to produce 35 percent of their energy from renewables within 12 years.
Reuters: "The cost of solar panels and batteries has fallen dramatically over the past few years, and this first subsidy-free development at Clayhill is a significant moment for clean energy in the UK," Claire Perry, minister for Climate Change and Industry said.

What if you could maximize the Ground Coverage Ratio (GCR) on your next project and not have to worry about the complicated variables that come with a tracker system? With a low tilt and clearance design, Dahlia® has the highest GCR of any fixed-tilt system in the marketplace. The system is available in three tilt options (7.5, 10 and 12.5 degrees) and designed to accommodate any sized PV module. The lightweight system is engineered with fewer components, several of which are shipped to job sites pre-assembled. This design feature reduces freight costs and rapidly trims the amount of on-site installation time required to complete construction. Maximizing PV coverage on a site can lead to an increase of production, which creates greater financial return for project owners. Over 100 MW of Dahlia® projects have been deployed across the United States, in regions of variable snow and wind loads. How much can Dahlia® cover and save you on your next project?
