    QUICK NEWS, August 12: WORLD INVESTORS HAVE $14TRIL FOR CLIMATE CHANGE; WHY BRITS LIKE NEW ENERGY; BUILDING-INTEGRATED PV GETS BOOST

    WORLD INVESTORS HAVE $14TRIL FOR CLIMATE CHANGE Green policy failures are choking off billions in private investment; Fund managers are concerned that governments are not doing enough to mitigate effects of global warming

    Tom Bawden, August 6, 2013 (UK Independent)

    “…With global warming set to wreak accelerating devastation on the global economy, the world’s biggest fund managers – who between them control $14trillion of investments in everything from wind turbines and agriculture to property and manufacturing – say they are considerably more worried about the issue than they were a year ago. They point to extreme weather events such as last year’s Superstorm Sandy in the US as evidence that climate change is already upon us and are concerned that governments, including Britain’s, are not doing nearly enough to mitigate the effects.” click here for more

    WHY BRITS LIKE NEW ENERGY New UKERC research defines values which determine public acceptance of energy system change

    17 July 2013 (UK Research Centre)

    “…[The study reveals] that people in Britain are fully supportive of the idea of energy system change...[and highlights] key factors that influence public assessment of proposed changes…[T]he research shows that the public favours changes that are: energy efficient rather than wasteful; protect the environment and nature; are reliable, accessible and safe; allow consumers a certain amount of autonomy and power; are socially just and fair; improve on what has gone before; score well in terms of quality and performance; and, fit with a long-term, sustainable trajectory, rather than being just a short-term fix…” click here for more

    BUILDING-INTEGRATED PV GETS BOOST Austin’s Heliovolt to expand; Solar product producer raises another $9.5 million, laying groundwork for global expansion.

    Brian Gaar, August 6, 2013 (Austin American-Statesman)

    “…[S]olar energy company HelioVolt Corp. is continuing to lay the groundwork for a commercial expansion…SK Group, whose holdings include South Korea’s largest refiner, has invested another $9.5 million in HelioVolt, bringing its total recent investment in the company to $19 million…The money will fund a global expansion for Helio-Volt, which makes thin-film solar products that can be incorporated into building materials…” click here for more
