While not perfect, solar provides jobs and lease revenue for tribes as it cleans up their air.
While the news about climate change seems to get worse every day, the rapidly improving technology, declining costs, and increasing accessibility of clean energy is the true bright spot in the march toward a zero-carbon future. 2013 had more clean energy milestones than we could fit on one page, but here are 13 of the key breakthroughs that happened this year. 1. Using salt to keep producing solar power even when the sun goes down. 2. Electric vehicle batteries that can also power buildings. 3. The next generation of wind turbines is a gamechanger. 4. Solar electricity hits grid parity with coal. 5. Advancing renewable energy from ocean waves. 6. Harnessing ocean waves to produce fresh water. 7. Ultra-thin solar cells that break efficiency records. 8. Batteries that are safer, lighter, and store more power. 9. New age offshore wind turbines that float. 10. Cutting electricity bills with direct current power. 11. Commercial production of clean energy from plant waste is finally here. 12. Innovative financing bringing clean energy to more people. 13. Wind power is now competitive with fossil fuels. Full Article:

As the rest of the world prepares to toast the new year, the wind industry is hard at work on its own year-end tradition, rushing to make sure projects qualify for an important subsidy before it is set to vanish at the stroke of midnight on Tuesday. Developers are signing deals, ordering equipment and lurching ahead with construction starts to qualify for a tax credit that is worth 2.3 cents a kilowatt-hour for the first 10 years of production. This month, giant turbine-makers like Vestas and Siemens have announced major new orders, including a deal worth more than $1 billion with MidAmerican Energy, an Iowa-based utility majority-owned by Warren E. Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway, and another with the Cape Wind project in Nantucket Sound. In previous years, the projects had to be in commercial operation by New Year’s Eve. This year, they need only have begun. “What we see right now is a race to the finish line, where we’re trying to get projects signed,” said Mark Albenze, chief executive of the Wind Power Americas unit of Siemens Energy. “It’s a little bit of a different dynamic, whereas in ’12 our projects teams were the ones stressing out in December and now it’s our acquisition team.”
