According to the program introduction, alternative energy accounts for one-half of one percent of all energy used today. Breaking free of the hydrocarbons, which accounts for a whopping 80 percent of energy used, has truly become a stated geopolitical concern
May 18th & 19th saw the renewables sector come together for the annual All-Energy conference and exhibition in Aberdeen. While developers, manufacturers, enterprise agencies and financiers debated and endorsed the industry's progress in Scotland and pondered on the development of the offshore wind supply chain, the Scottish European Green Energy Centre (SEGEC) felt it prudent to remind delegates that many of the current business models won't deliver the project investment needed in the future.
The end of 2010 saw an accumulated volume of approximately 740 MW in Belgium, enabling the country to establish its 5th position in the EU ranks, before France. 88% of capacity is in Flanders. While Hernieuws and VREG data totalled up to 385 MW for Belgium in 2009, EurObserv'ER recently counted 363 MWp DC capacity. Based on the original AC data, 2010 could have seen growth of 354 MW. With a population of 10,8 million, the country as a whole would have reached a level of 68 W of installed solar capacity per inhabitant (75 Wp DC).
Japanese and Chinese Markets Continue Strong Growth with New Policy Initiatives
GlobalData's latest renewable policy report includes major policy developments in the renewable energy market for the month August, 2010. This includes updates in policies in China and the US.
