Learn About Three New Finance Models for Non-Profits Wanting to Go Solar

REC Solar has developed new solar financing partnerships that are tailored to the needs of non-profits, such as churches, hospitals, HOA's, and charitable organizations.

Survival Strategies in the Atacama Desert: Chilean Lithium Miners Manage by Playing the Regs

Lithium is an essential component of batteries for small electronics and large electric vehicles as well as for materials for the housing and construction industry. In this interview with The Mining Report, economist Daniela Desormeaux, founder of signumBOX and widely quoted expert on industrial chemicals, shines a light on the lithium industry for investors looking for a new opportunity.

Custodians Can Help Energy Companies Market Alternative Investments To Self-Directed IRA Investors

Not all custodians will accept IRAs that invest in alternatives but there are many that have specifically developed the expertise to serve this market.

The International Clean Energy Race

The demand on electrical power systems, causing shortages, quality problems, rolling blackouts, and price spikes have caused utility customers to seek other sources of high-quality, reliable electricity.

Developing Renewable Energy Projects on Brownfields: Mitigating Environmental Risks & Liabilities

Although the environmental risks and liabilities associated with brownfields generally diminishes their viability as locations for such facilities, these risks and liabilities can often be sufficiently controlled and minimized through governmental and private party tools to make certain projects worth pursuing.

Half of power plant capacity additions in 2013 came from natural gas

But Solar came second - twice as much as coal - and Wind was 4th (comment from AltEnergyMag)

Why Oil Industry Estimates for Energy Reserves Can Be an X-File

Hopefully, we won't have to deal constantly with misinformation like Mulder and Scully had to when jousting with their malevolent arch-nemesis, the Cigarette Smoking Man. However, be prepared to do some digging to get at the facts.

Distributed Generations Future Impact on the U.S. Capacity Markets
