100-kilowatt solar installation powers university's parking garage --- Excess solar energy stored in an industrial-size battery system --- Project enabled by $1 million grant from Duke Energy Florida
Brazils cumulative installed capacity for renewable energy will grow from 19.8 Gigawatts (GW) in 2013 to over 32.9 GW by 2017 ----Wind power will overtake biomass as Brazils leading renewable energy market during the forecast period, says report
China continued to deploy wind power at a remarkable rate, installing an estimated 23.3 GW in 2014, a 45% increase over 2013. China accounted for 45% of the 51 GW installed globally in 2014, representing $94.6 billion in revenue.
North America leads the market today, but the largest market over the long term is likely to be Asia Pacific, report concludes
The unexpected slow demand and the aggressive price competition accelerate poly-silicon price downtrend. At the moment, China domestic demand seems to perform lower than expected. Without the strong demand recovery, Non-Chinese poly-silicon manufacturers, especially American, are still doing the price competition and dumping their products in the market, due to their concerns on the upcoming Chinese anti-dumping final ruling.

One of the fastest-growing areas of solar energy research is with materials called perovskites. These promising light harvesters could revolutionize the solar and electronics industries because they show potential to convert sunlight into electricity more efficiently and less expensively than today’s silicon-based semiconductors. These superefficient crystal structures have taken the scientific community by storm in the past few years because they can be processed very inexpensively and can be used in applications ranging from solar cells to light-emitting diodes (LEDs) found in phones and computer monitors. A new study published online April 30 in the journal Science by University of Washington and University of Oxford researchers demonstrates that perovskite materials, generally believed to be uniform in composition, actually contain flaws that can be engineered to improve solar devices even further.

The boom in West Texas wind-powered electricity generation has delivered a major economic boost to the region, including creation of over 40 new businesses and 30,000 construction jobs in 57 West Texas counties since 2001, according to data collected by Public Citizen’s Texas office. The 40 new manufacturers and businesses make everything from wind turbine blades and steel towers to electronics, according to the data. Wind farms also generate over $85 million in taxes annually in rural Texas counties and more than $9 billion in new taxable assets in the last 14 years. Over a five-month period in 2014 and 2015, Public Citizen’s Texas office collected data on the economic impact of wind development from county appraisers and tax assessors in the 57 West Texas counties. The data includes estimates of investment values, employment, tax revenues, and lease payments by wind farms, and it reflects review of previous research and case studies.
