Solar Wars Draw Millions in Cash in Threat to Rooftop Industry

Solar Wars Draw Millions in Cash in Threat to Rooftop Industry | Green economy & energy investment | Scoop.it
There’s a war brewing over the future of rooftop solar, and Arizona is at ground zero.
Pinnacle West Capital Corp., which owns the state’s largest utility, last week said it has formed a third-party group to support candidates for an elected state board that regulates their industry. The move promises to inject $1 million into a race in which SolarCity Corp., a rooftop solar provider, is already planning to spend $2 million though a nonprofit it supports, according to officials from the two groups.

The real oil limits story; what other researchers missed

The real oil limits story; what other researchers missed | Green economy & energy investment | Scoop.it
For a long time, a common assumption has been that the world will eventually "run out" of oil and other non-renewable resources. Instead, we seem to be running into surpluses and low prices. What is going on that was missed by M. King Hubbert, Harold Hotelling, and by the popular understanding of supply and demand?…

Stanford engineers set record for capturing and storing solar energy in hydrogen fuel | Stanford News

Stanford engineers set record for capturing and storing solar energy in hydrogen fuel | Stanford News | Green economy & energy investment | Scoop.it
Solar energy has the potential to provide abundant power, but only if scientists solve two key issues: storing the energy for use at all hours, particularly at night, and making the technology more cost effective. Now an interdisciplinary team at Stanford has made significant strides toward solving the storage issue, demonstrating the most efficient means yet of storing electricity captured from sunlight in the form of chemical bonds. If the team can find a way of lowering the cost of their technology, they say it would be a huge step toward making solar power a viable alternative to current, more polluting energy sources.

As Congolese search for the valuable mineral—cobalt is the most expensive part of lithium-ion batteries—they are suffering a surge in child labor, poverty, pollution and rare birth defects.
