California more than doubled its solar output last year and now hosts two of the world's largest solar plants.
California’s big push into clean energy is seeing results as the state became the first with at least 5% of its overall electricity coming from large-scale solar projects last year. California was followed by Arizona and Nevada, both of which generated 2.8% of their total electricity from big solar plants.
London Mayor Boris Johnson has revealed City Hall is seriously considering trialling new technology that allows roads to convert solar rays into electricity.
Speaking at Mayor's Question Time this week, Johnson said he believed there was "much more scope for generating solar power in London than we previously thought" and that his environment department has been studying solar road technology "with interest".
World Bank will only fund coal projects in cases of ‘extreme need’ due to the risk climate change poses to ending world poverty, says Jim Yong Kim.
“We are going to have to focus all of our energy to move toward renewable and cleaner forms of energy. But on the other hand we believe very strongly that the poorest countries have a right to energy and that we not ask these energy poor countries to wait until there are ways of ensuring that solar and wind power can provide the kind of base load that all countries need in order to industrialise,” said Kim.
Despite a Slowdown, C&I Solar Remains Poised for Growth
While residential solar installers battle for market share and yieldcos gobble up utility scale projects, the commercial and industrial (C&I) solar space has been relatively quiet. Broadly defined as behind-the-meter projects between 50 kW and 5 MW, the middle market remains untapped due to market fragmentation and complexity associated with relatively smaller deal sizes. In fact, the number of middle market solar projects interconnected in Q1, 2014 was down 12 percent from the same quarter in 2013, according to the Solar Market Insight Report. Additionally, Q1, 2014 marked the first quarter that residential solar MW installed exceeded those installed in the C&I niche since 2002.
A Cambridge start-up believes its flexible solar panelling solution could fundamentally change the landscape of solar installation in the commercial sector.
The Solar Cloth Company’s award winning flexible thin film photovoltaics (FTFP) are a few micrometres thick and can be integrated into flexible and lightweight tensile structures called building integrated photovoltaics (BIPV). In doing so, they provide an alternative to traditional photovoltaic panels that are heavy and cumbersome.
