    QUICK NEWS, July 17: SOLAR TECHNOLOGY STANDARDIZING; NEW YORK STATE LOOKS TO OFFSHORE WIND; TAKING GEOTHERMAL HOME

    SOLAR TECHNOLOGY STANDARDIZING PV roadmaps: For years, PV technologists have clung on to learning curves and roadmaps for the PV industry…

    Finlay Colville, July 2013 (PV Magazine)

    “The strong competition from hundreds of PV manufacturers during 2010 to 2012 has played a key role in pricing and trade cases being played out globally today. However, despite so many companies seeking to gain market-share, the supply landscape remains dominated by just ten suppliers that have provided almost half of all PV modules installed since the mid 1950s…As a result, the technology landscape has become heavily weighted towards the technologies used by these suppliers, and the number of other manufacturers that subsequently implemented identical process flows using the same substrate types. The most prevalent technology has been p-type multi c-Si, with over 50% of all PV panels currently installed using this module type…” click here for more

    NEW YORK STATE LOOKS TO OFFSHORE WIND New York’s Atlantic Ocean Study to Support Ocean Industries Development and Offshore Wind Energy; Study is Significant Step in Strengthening New York State’s Ocean-Based Economy and Protecting Environment

    July 10, 2013 (New York State Department of State)

    “The New York State Department of State (NYSDOS)…released a comprehensive study on the physical, biological, wildlife and geographic characteristics of the Atlantic Ocean impacting New Yorkers. The results of the New York Offshore Atlantic Ocean Study will lay the groundwork for selecting offshore areas where wind development could be most suitable and appropriate and will serve to help protect habitats important to the environmental health and recreational and tourism priorities of the coastal communities as well as sustaining New York’s ocean-based industries…” click here for more

    TAKING GEOTHERMAL HOME Geothermal Heat Pumps; Residential and Commercial Applications for Geothermal Heat Pumps: Global Market Analysis and Forecasts

    3Q 2013 (Navigant Research)

    “One of the most mature and stable platforms of renewable energy usage, geothermal heat pumps (GHPs) were first used in the 1940s, and current systems became commercially available in the 1970s. Today, GHP systems are being deployed in nearly every region of the world and in residential, commercial, institutional, and industrial environments with great success…[The market stands to experience significant growth as] the world economy recovers…The main barrier to GHP system deployment growth has been and remains to be the high upfront cost of system installation. Developments aimed to reduce this upfront cost are a primary focus of today’s R&D efforts. Navigant Research forecasts that installed GHP capacity will grow from 46.7 gigawatts thermal (GWt) worldwide in 2012 to 127.4 GWt in 2020…” click here for more
