Bipartisan Support Driving Solar Energy Development - Principal Solar Institute

Bipartisan Support Driving Solar Energy Development - Principal Solar Institute | Webinars, Whitepapers and Publications | Scoop.it

By: Michael Gorton, Chief Executive Officer / Chairman, Principal SolarMark Victor Hansen, Founder and Co-creator, Chicken Soup for the SoulAllen West, President and CEO , National Center for Policy Analysis; and Laura Carabello, Founder and Principal, CPR Strategic Marketing Communications

The Principal Solar Institute's insight:

Statistically, the most proponents of solar energy development tend to be politically liberal, but you may be surprised at the many reasons conservatives are taking the lead in this rapidly expanding industry. This white paper is truly worth the read.

A smarter approach to electric vehicles and the grid

A smarter approach to electric vehicles and the grid | Webinars, Whitepapers and Publications | Scoop.it
Our electric grid has grown over time to accommodate the increasing population and electricity use per household. Now we are experiencing an evolutionary shift to electric vehicles (EV) for personal transportation, as is evident from the emergence of more than a dozen manufacturers in the market today.
The Principal Solar Institute's insight:

More of Mark Victor's views on the future of EV is found in his whitepaper Published at the Institute:

Energy Storage - Turning Solar into an On-Demand Resource for the Electric Grid

Energy Storage - Turning Solar into an On-Demand Resource for the Electric Grid | Webinars, Whitepapers and Publications | Scoop.it
Solar energy continues to blaze a path forward for renewables, and installations are rapidly expanding around the globe – at both the grid and distributed scales. This represents a major shift in the way we generate and consume electricity every day, and the increased penetration of renewables is creating new challenges. Both photovoltaic and solar thermal benefit immensely from the addition of energy storage technologies – allowing renewables to be dispatchable, on-demand resources. Energy storage technology is rapidly advancing as the solution to challenges created by intermittency and distributed generation. This webinar will focus on the role of energy storage on the grid, and how storage is able to augment the solar industry.
The Principal Solar Institute's insight:

   Energy Storage is one of the keys to fully realizing the benefits of many renewable energy sources, including solar. Attend our free webinar Wednesday, October 8, 2014 to hear from one of the foremost experts on energy storage. The live webinar will afford you the opportunity to ask Mr. Roberts questions on energy storage, or you can listen to the recorded webinar at your convenience.

Delivering to the Energy Marketplace -Texas Harvests Wind and Solar

Delivering to the Energy Marketplace -Texas Harvests Wind and Solar | Webinars, Whitepapers and Publications | Scoop.it

Texas is a well-known energy state, and is famous for oil and gas production. But surprising to many, it is also the nation’s leading electricity producer, generating more than 10% of the total US electric energy annually, according to the Energy Industry Administration’s most recent report. In fact, on a global energy producer scale, Texas would rank number 12, between South Korea and the United Kingdom.
With vast supplies of natural gas and coal, it is the national leader in electricity generated from fossil fuels, but Texas also leads in ... more >>>>  http://www.principalsolarinstitute.org/webinar/1634
