While the OFFICE of President remains in highest regard at NewEnergyNews, this administration's position on climate change makes it impossible to regard THIS president with respect. Below is the NewEnergyNews theme song until 2020.

The challenge now: To make every day Earth Day.

    QUICK NEWS, August 21: LEAKED CLIMATE CHANGE REPORT IS ADAMANT; SUN PRICES DROP TOWARD INCENTIVE-FREE LEVELS; ADVANCED SYSTEM TO LINK NEW ENERGY & GRID

    LEAKED CLIMATE CHANGE REPORT IS ADAMANT Leaked Report Spotlights Big Climate Change Assessment; Why the UN's coming fifth report on global warming is already making waves.

    Brian Clark Howard, August 20, 2013 (National Geographic)

    “A leaked early version of a major forthcoming report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), the United Nations-affiliated panel of scientists that is often cited as the world's top authority on global warming, is grabbing headlines…The New York Times reported on what it called the report's "near certainty" that humans are responsible for the rising temperatures of recent decades and its warning that sea levels could rise by more than three feet by the end of the century…[It] also dismisses a recent slowdown in global warming, attributing it to short-term factors…The leaked document…still has to be approved by the several hundred scientist-members of the IPCC…[and could] change in response to comments…But experts say the contents of the draft report are unlikely to change substantially…” click here for more

    SUN PRICES DROP TOWARD INCENTIVE-FREE LEVELS Berkeley Lab Report Shows PV Prices And Cash Incentives Both Falling Sharply

    16 August 2013 (Solar Industry)

    "…Tracking the Sun VI: An Historical Summary of the Installed Price of Photovoltaics in the United States from 1998 to 2012 [from Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory found]…Installed prices continued their precipitous decline in 2012, falling year-over-year by $0.9/W (14%) for systems ≤ 10 kW, $0.8/W (13%) for systems 10-100 kW, and $0.3/W (6%) for systems >100 kW…[The decline] is largely attributable to falling module prices, which fell by $2.6/W from 2008 through 2012…roughly 80% of the drop in total PV system prices…Over the longer-term, installed system prices have fallen also as a result of reductions in non-module costs…[and] incentives provided through state and utility PV rebates and performance-based incentives have fallen substantially over time, offsetting much of the installed price reductions from the perspective of customer-economics…” click here for more

    ADVANCED SYSTEM TO LINK NEW ENERGY & GRID Integrating Renewables: ADMS To The Rescue?

    John Dirkman, August 12, 2013 (Up Front via Solar Industry)

    “…Renewable integration is particularly tricky for distributed energy resources (DERs), which are typically low- and medium-voltage renewables within the distribution network…This need to manage a bidirectional flow of energy that can change immediately requires a completely new way of delivering power, which was not something the engineers of the original grid considered…One effective way to manage DER integration is through an advanced distribution management system (ADMS)…” click here for more
