The nation's two biggest cities, Madrid and Barcelona, along with Cádiz, Zaragoza and some 700 smaller municipalities are all now using 100 per cent certified renewable energy for street lighting and public buildings.
Today, IREC proudly joins the collective voice of advocates and industry celebrating a milestone we have worked for 37 years to witness: two million solar installations now in the U.S.
The first numbers on last year's energy trends are in and there are two pieces of great news and one that should worry us: Solar and wind energy are thriving, coal-fired generation sunk to a four-decade low - but natural gas infrastructure is expanding.
The introduction of an Ultra Low Emission Zone is intended to help improve the air quality in central London. Currently, air pollution is one of the biggest challenges London is facing.
In a bid to become the cleanest country worldwide, the UK was announced that it is looking to cut its greenhouse gas emissions to zero by 2050.
Solar panel prices tumbled around 30 percent last year after China, the world's largest producer, cut subsidies to shrink its bloated solar industry, pushing smaller manufacturers to the brink of collapse.
There are still huge strides to make to combat climate change, but we are definitely making progress. Leaders from across the globe are stepping up efforts to ensure marked changes are being made to dramatically reduce emissions and change behaviours - and fast.
Nevada led the renewable energy pack by voting in favor of Question 6, with 59 percent of voters approving the measure. Known as the Renewable Energy Standards Initiative, it will require Nevada to source at least 50 percent of its electricity from renewable sources by 2030
The UK also ratified the Paris Agreement (COP21) that further seeks to regulate and minimize carbon emissions.
The National Rural Electrification Plan (NREP) will bring access to electricity to 96% of the population of Peru, and with that, access to educational opportunities, medical care and the global economy.
A resilient and reliable electricity grid is essential not only to the security of the infrastructure powering our economy, but also to the everyday lives of all Americans.
States up efficiency investments & power savings; push net-zero buildings & electric vehicles; NJ, CT, CO, SD improve most; MA and CA lead.
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.
