    QUICK NEWS, October 2: SOLAR KEEPS COMING ON; FIRST COMMUNITY WIND IN IRELAND; SMART METERS ACCELERATING

    SOLAR KEEPS COMING ON Solar Energy Capacity Growth Rivals Wind as Manufacturer Outlook Strengthens

    Jesse Jenkins, October 1, 2013 (The Energy Collective)

    “New solar photovoltaic (PV) capacity may rival or exceed the growth in wind energy for the first time in 2013, as growing demand and continuing industry consolidation begin to brighten prospects for solar manufacturers, industry analysts report…Between 30 and 37 gigawatts (GW) of solar PV capacity will be connected to power grids worldwide…The higher end of that forecast would outstrip projections for 33.8 GW of wind capacity additions this year, marking the first time that solar has gone toe to toe with wind in terms of capacity growth…[Solar is projected to grow 20 percent this year] while wind power growth will slow by 25 percent as markets in the United States and China cool…” click here for more

    FIRST COMMUNITY WIND IN IRELAND Ireland’s first community-owned wind farm opens in Tipperary

    16 September 2013 (Silicon Republic)

    “…[A] group of people, ranging from students, farmers and even a local priest, have come together to pioneer Ireland’s first community-owned wind farm in Templederry, Co Tipperary…The group behind the wind farm is now producing 'cleaner' electricity and selling it to the electrical grid…The wind farm has the capacity to produce about 15GWh (gigawatt-hours) per year. In layman's terms, this would be enough to power 3,500 houses or the equivalent of the local town of Nenagh, near where the wind farm is based…” click here for more

    SMART METERS ACCELERATING Smart Grid Deployment Tracker 3Q13; Smart Meter and Smart Grid Projects: Project Tracking, Regional Analysis, Vendor Selection Share, and Unit Shipments

    3Q 2013 (Navigant Research)

    Smart meter shipments in the first half of 2013 grew in comparison to the last half of 2012. The total volume reached 25.9 million meters in 1Q 2013 and 25.5 million meters in 2Q 2013. This slight quarterly decline was due to a lull in announcements for large new smart grid projects. China still accounts for the vast majority of global smart meter shipments, as the pace of deployments in the country continues to outpace that in other regions. The pace of meter shipments in North America, however, continued to slow down from the previous quarters. Many smart metering projects that had been fueled by U.S. federal stimulus money came to an end. As a result, there were few large-scale smart meter deployments announced in North America during the first half of 2013. The exception was Commonwealth Edison in Illinois, which said it would finally move ahead with the deployment of nearly 4 million smart meters after winning government approval. Smart meter projects in Europe, France in particular, are also poised to accelerate in coming quarters. Navigant Research estimates that total smart meter shipments for 3Q 2012-2Q 2013 amounted to 97.7 million meters… click here for more
