Excerpts:

Starbucks, Nike, eBay, Adidas, IKEA: "We Cannot Risk Our Kids' Futures On The False Hope The Vast Majority Of Scientists Are Wrong"

I couldn’t come up with a better title than Joe Romm used on his post. This line is just such a kicker: "We Cannot Risk Our Kids' Futures On The False Hope The Vast Majority Of Scientists Are Wrong." That’s one we should all repeat daily. I simply put Adidas, eBay, and IKEA in the title instead of Intel because they stand out to me more as household names. But the amazing thing is that beyond those … Read More

Statements On Obama Budget From NRDC, CAP, & SEIA

The professional policy wonks have their statements out on Obama’s Fiscal Year 2014 Budget plan. Below are statements from three groups I greatly respect. From Franz Matzner, associate director of government affairs for the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC): "President Obama's budget once again calls for eliminating billions of dollars in taxpayer handouts to the dirty energy industry of the past, which it doesn't need, and harms our health and planet. Looking to a clean … Read More

Total Global Solar PV Capacity Now Approaching Or Over 100 GW

Editor’s note: Solar power is growing at a very rapid clip. If the only power plants we had were power plants build within the past two years, we’d have more solar power capacity than power capacity from any other source (of course, that’s if we’re including rooftop solar power systems). Read the Solar Love repost below for some more fun facts and context. Total global solar photovoltaic capacity is fast approaching the 100 gigawatt (100,000 … Read More

"Artificial Leaf" Makes Clean Energy From Dirty Water

What’s all this fuss about silly federal research projects? If one day in the not too distant future you can go to the dollar store, buy a thin, flat device the size of a playing card, dunk it in a quart of dirty bath water and use it to generate about 100 watts of electricity 24 hours a day, you can thank the Air Force. Along with other federal agencies, the Air Force Office of … Read More

Potential Funding Opportunity For PV Projects In Europe

Reposted from the website of the European Photovoltaic Industry Association: The European Union's NER300 programme, which funds innovative low-carbon energy demonstration projects, has issued a new call for proposals. EPIA monitoring has found that it includes several potential funding opportunities for PV projects. Published on 3 April, the call for proposals includes the following subcategories of projects that can compete for funding: Large-scale concentrator photovoltaics power plants with nominal capacity 20 MWe [PVa] with an … Read More

Victorian Zoos Are The First Carbon-Neutral Zoos In The World

Three zoos in Australia’s state of Victoria can now boast of an accolade no other zoo in the world currently can. Possibly inspired by several other entities in Australia voluntarily offsetting their carbon emissions, Zoos Victoria has become carbon neutral. Melbourne Zoo, Werribee Open Range Zoo, and Healesville Sanctuary achieved this feat through several clean energy measures and purchasing carbon offsets from the Australian government’s National Carbon Offset Standard (NCOS). The zoos implemented energy efficiency … Read More

Asia-Pacific Renewable Energy Market To Hit 535.2 GW By 2020 (GlobalData Report)

According to a recently published report by Global Data*, the Asia-Pacific region’s cumulative installed capacity from renewable energy sources (excluding hydropwer) is expected to reach 535.2 GW (535,200 MW) by 2020. Of course, the rapid economic growth of several countries in this region is a key factor stimulating this projected growth, as well as the urgent and widely recognized threat of global warming. The percentage of power generated from renewable energy sources is expected to … Read More

CPV Market To Hit 4.7 GW By 2020 (GlobalData Report)

In order to let you know about more in-depth research on various cleantech markets, we’ve decided to partner with a leading market research firm, GlobalData. Basically, the deal is pretty simple: you get a discount on market research reports (10% off*); CleanTechnica gets a cut of the sales (yay!); and GlobalData sells more of its top-notch market research reports. I don’t see a downside. One hitch (as you probably know) is that market research reports … Read More

EV Charging Station Count Increases 9% In 1st Quarter

The number of publicly accessible electric vehicle chargers in the US increased by 9% in the first quarter of 2013. This is likely a response to the increased number of plug-in electric vehicles on the road. Chevy Volt, Nissan Leaf, and Tesla Model S sales have been going strong, as we just reported on Monday, and there are several other plug-in electric vehicles on the road, as well. The thousands of people who purchased those vehicles … Read More
