    CALIFORNIA SOLAR INCENTIVE ENDING Pending End Of CSI Program Is A Test Case For Post-Incentive Solar

    14 August 2013 (Solar Industry)

    "…[T]he California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC)] annual report on the progress of the California Solar Initiative (CSI) in July…said the program had reached 66% of its stated goal with 1.629 GW of installed solar capacity at 167,878 customer sites. At CSI's outset in 2006, the CPUC established a goal to install 1.75 GW of PV power systems in 10 years, with another 190 MW for low-income residential and affordable housing…A new report from the California Center for Sustainable Energy (CSSE), which administers the CSI program for the CPUC in the San Diego Gas and Electric (SDG&E) service territory, seeks to lay out how the solar sector moves forward once the money - over $1.7 billion to date - runs out…” click here for more

    WIND JUST WATING FOR TRANSMISSION Clean Energy Transmission Line RFI Receives Overwhelming Response from Wind Developers; More than 16,000 Megawatts of Low-Cost Wind Accessible by the Southeast

    August 14, 2013 (Clean Line Energy Partners)

    “…15 wind generation companies in Oklahoma, southwest Kansas and the Texas Panhandle responded to a Request for Information (RFI) that was issued on June 20, 2013 [by Plains & Eastern Clean Line LLC, an affiliate of Clean Line Energy Partners LLC]. These project developers have rights to over 16,000 megawatts (MW) worth of wind projects in the region, demonstrating the need for more transmission infrastructure to move the cost-competitive wind energy to the Mid-South and the Southeast…[The undisclosed] proposed cost per kilowatt hour (kWh) of energy was in line with other wind energy power purchase agreements recently signed in this region… click here for more

    SELF-DRIVING VEHICLES BY 2020 Autonomous Vehicles; Self-Driving Vehicles, Autonomous Parking, and Other Advanced Driver Assistance Systems: Global Market Analysis and Forecasts

    3Q 2013 (Navigant Research)

    "…Combinations of [advanced driver assistance] features are now being brought to market in some 2014 models to offer semi-autonomous driving. Increasing volumes and technology improvements mean that it is now feasible to install the multiple sensors necessary for such capability thanks to cost reductions…The industry consensus is that autonomous driving will be available by 2020…[T]he factors that remain to be solved before rollout to the public are those of liability and legislation. Navigant Research forecasts that autonomous vehicles will gradually gain traction in the market over the coming two decades and by 2035, sales of autonomous vehicles will reach 95.4 million annually, representing 75% of all light-duty vehicle sales…” click here for more
