Driven largely by the falling price of solar photovoltaics, the global remote microgrid market will expand from 349 megawatts (MW) of generation capacity in 2011 to over 1.1 gigawatts (GW) by 2017, an amount that at least equals all other microgrid segments combined. The remote microgrid market is expected to grow to $10.2 billion by 2017, and investors and suppliers are starting to take notice. Featuring HOMER CEO Dr. Peter Lilienthal along with Pike senior research analyst Peter Asmus, this webinar will break down the remote microgrid sector by market applications and system requirements, and examine the emerging opportunities in telecom, developing economies, the military, and industrial settings.
The number of Internet-based carbon calculators that estimate personal carbon footprints has been growing in recent years.
This article, from Kirsten Gram-Hanssen & Toke Haunstrup Christensen of the Danish Building Research Institute, discusses the roles that these calculators can play in changing everyday practices and how users evaluate them. The study builds on results from a questionnaire survey and focus groups with users of a Danish Internet-based carbon calculator developed in 2009, the year of the Climate Summit in Copenhagen, when climate change was prominent on the political agenda.
The article suggests designing Internet-based carbon calculators that actively engage users in collective actions instead of primarily presenting individualistic interventions. It shows that users are different with respect to which of their everyday practices they feel able or inclined to change, with air travel being the practice that, by far, they are least willing to alter.
RETScreen is well-known around the world as a tool to analyze the viability of clean energy projects. However, it is also useful for planning, designing, implementing, and reviewing the viability of clean energy policies. RETScreen allows participants in the policy process to consider the technology, business, and finance of clean energy in an integrated fashion, thus helping to develop appropriate – and ultimately, successful – policies.
To demonstrate RETScreen’s value in the policy process, the RETScreen Clean Energy Policy Toolkit has been developed and is provided below. This initiative was undertaken by NRCan/CanmetENERGY’s RETScreen International and supported financially by a grant from the Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Partnership (REEEP).
