    QUICK NEWS, October 30: SOLAR-PLUS-STORAGE MARKET TO BOOM; THE TRUTH ABOUT WIND ENERGY AND EAGLES; NEW ENERGY FOR DIGGING AND DRILLING

    SOLAR-PLUS-STORAGE MARKET TO BOOM Coupled Solar and Energy Storage Market to Grow to $2.8 Billion in 2018; Dominated by grid installations, this market segment will be a boon to energy storage producers but have only a modest impact on the solar market…

    September 10, 2013 (Lux Research)

    "…This symbiotic match [of the solar and energy storage sectors] shows promise, yielding a $2.8 billion market over the next five years, according to Lux Research…Grid-tied solar installations will comprise 675 MW, or nearly 95% of the combined 711 MW market, while off-grid applications including telecom power claim the remaining 5%...As lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries and overall storage arrays fall in price, residential systems will gain the most, growing to 382 MW in 2018. The light commercial segment will increase to 220 MW while heavy commercial/industrial systems lag, growing only to 73.3 MW…Japan is the worldwide leader [with 381 MW]…Germany will come in second at 94 MW, while the U.S. will be third at 75 MW…[New] policies may dramatically increase the market…” click here for more

    THE TRUTH ABOUT WIND ENERGY AND EAGLES Saving the Earth While Killing Some Protected Birds; Wind offers one the lowest-impact, most environmentally benign energy technology available to us today.

    John Anderson, October 22, 2013 (Wall Street Journal)

    "…[W]ind offers the lowest-impact, most environmentally benign energy technology available to us today. Plus, wind attracted $25 billion in private investment last year and is supported by the major conservation organizations and Americans nationwide (71% per Gallup)…American-made wind power enables the U.S. to…fight climate change—the number one threat to wildlife, according to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service…No one takes wildlife impacts more seriously than the wind industry…[W]hile unfortunately some eagles collide with turbines at some wind farms…fatalities of golden eagles at modern wind facilities represent only 2% of all documented sources of human-caused eagle fatalities, and only a few bald eagles have collided with turbines in the history of the industry…Groups like the National Wildlife Federation and the Audubon Society, which make it their job to protect birds, including eagles, and other wildlife, support the development of responsibly sited wind turbines…” click here for more

    NEW ENERGY FOR DIGGING AND DRILLING Renewable Energy in the Mining Industry; Solar PV, Wind Power, Geothermal, Fuel Cells, and Solar Thermal in the Global Mining Industry: Market Analysis and Forecasts

    4Q 2013 (Navigant Research)

    “The mining industry is under continued pressure from shareholders and external stakeholders to reduce dependence on traditional energy resources. In countries where mining represents a significant percentage of gross domestic product (GDP), it can also be a significant draw on the country’s electricity grid infrastructure…[T]he industry has reached a tipping point and is transitioning from using solar, wind, and other renewable energy technologies in demonstration projects to an increased focus on larger scale deployments…[E]xternal and internal pressures are combining to provide an expansion of market opportunities for renewable energy providers to work with mining companies. Navigant Research forecasts that renewable energy technologies will supply between 5% and 8% of the world’s mining industry power consumption by 2022…” click here for more
