    QUICK NEWS, August 6: REPUBLICAN LEADERS BACK OBAMA CLIMATE ACTION; HEAT WAVE SPIKES GRID STRESS AND POWER PRICES; LOW SUN COSTS HOLD

    REPUBLICAN LEADERS BACK OBAMA CLIMATE ACTION A Republican Case for Climate Action

    William D. Ruckelshaus, Lee M. Thomas, William K. Reilly, and Christine Todd Whitman, August 1, 2013 (NY Times)

    "Each of us took turns over the past 43 years running the Environmental Protection Agency. We served Republican presidents, but we have a message that transcends political affiliation: the United States must move now on substantive steps to curb climate change, at home and internationally…The costs of inaction are undeniable. The lines of scientific evidence grow only stronger and more numerous. And the window of time remaining to act is growing smaller: delay could mean that warming becomes “locked in.”…A market-based approach, like a carbon tax, would be the best path to reducing greenhouse-gas emissions, but that is unachievable in the current political gridlock in Washington. Dealing with this political reality, President Obama’s June climate action plan lays out achievable actions that would deliver real progress…Rather than argue against his proposals, our leaders in Congress should endorse them and start the overdue debate about what bigger steps are needed and how to achieve them…” click here for more

    HEAT WAVE SPIKES GRID STRESS AND POWER PRICES Short-term, real-time power prices reflect system strain during Northeast heat wave

    July 19, 2013 (U. S. Energy Information Administration)

    “The first sustained heat wave of summer 2013 in the Northeast hit this week and electric systems in New England, New York, and across the Mid-Atlantic region are contending with the stress of meeting elevated demand levels for electricity to cool homes and workplaces amid high temperatures and humidity. Daily temperatures in these regions reached highs in the upper 90s. Real-time electric power prices in the New York Independent System Operator area peaked at more than $800 per megawatthour (MWh) on July 17 in New York City…High real-time power prices are an indicator of electric system stress…” click here for more

    LOW SUN COSTS HOLD Report: EU Tariffs Ending The Era Of Low-Cost Chinese Solar Modules

    23 July 2013 (Solar Industry)

    “The European Union's (EU) anti-dumping tariffs are spurring an increase in prices for Chinese solar modules, marking the end of a period when inexpensive photovoltaic devices enabled fast growth of installations in the region…[according to] a new report by IHS…After declining for 48 months since the first quarter of 2009, with a seasonal uptick in February 2013, the average price of Chinese crystal polysilicon modules in Europe rose by 4% in June to EUR 0.54 per watt, up from EUR 0.52 in May…[HIS] expects prices to continue climbing in July and then again in September, with an increase to an average of EUR 0.55 per watt by the end of that month…” click here for more
