Maturing Industries (Short Infographic)

We’ve already written about the fact that the solar industry is simply going through a maturation process, and that the “solar shakeout” is equivalent to what every major technology industry has gone through (click that link above for more on all that). Last week, however, Giles Parkinson shared a must-see graphic over on RenewEconomy when discussing the downfall of Suntech. It is below, preceded by Giles’ commentary: Much has and will be written about the … Read More

Biggest Ever Earthquake In Oklahoma Is Linked To Oil Wastewater Injection

While the emerging link between natural gas fracking and earthquakes has been grabbing a lot of attention, another problem has been bubbling up under our feet: a series of earthquakes in normally calm areas has been traced to conventional oil drilling operations. In particular, Oklahoma has been hit by a string of unusual earthquakes over the past couple of years, including the biggest one ever recorded in the state, a magnitude 5.7 temblor near Prague … Read More

No Retroactive Cuts To Germany's Solar Feed-in Tariffs

Reposted from Lenz Blog: Last week German Chancellor Merkel discussed the proposals of her ministers Altmaier and Rösler to reduce the cost of the German feed-in tariff system with the Governors of the German States. She needs their support in the Bundesrat for any change to the law. I recall having discussed these proposals in detail last month. Green Member of Parliament Hans-Josef Fell reports on the results of those talks here (in German). He notes that the … Read More

Georgia Set To Increase Solar Energy With New Legislation

A new solar energy bill in the US state of Georgia has been submitted, "Rural Georgia Economic Recovery and Solar Resource Act of 2014.” This bill would create a new model for generation and distribution of electricity, allowing the Public Service Commission to authorize and establish a rural community solar initiative and oversee and manage the expansion of solar energy in the state. One of the key backers of the bill is Georgia Solar Utilities, who, like other third-party companies, will be able … Read More

China's Utility Companies Vulnerable To Water Scarcity

A new report by research company Bloomberg New Energy Finance shows that China’s “Big Five” power utilities are heavily exposed to water supply disruptions given the huge quantities of water they use and their locations in climate affected portions of the country. We have covered the possible water shortages in China before — both specifically looking at the potential for renewable industries to benefit from water shortages and the regional troubles that will result from … Read More
