    QUICK NEWS, December 10: SOLAR STILL BOOMING IN Q3; THE ECONOMICS OF DISTRIBUTED WIND, BIG AND SMALL; SMART WATER SYSTEMS TO TRIPLE TO $3.3BIL BY 2022

    SOLAR STILL BOOMING IN Q3 Solar Market Insight 2013 Q3

    December 9, 2013 (Solar Energy Industries Association)

    “The U.S. installed 930 megawatts (MW) of photovoltaics (PV) in Q3 2013, up 20 percent over Q2 2013 and 35 percent over Q3 2012…the second largest quarter in the history of the U.S. solar market and the largest quarter ever for residential PV installations…[T]he utility solar sector represented more than half of new PV capacity installed…[T]he residential market…posted the segment’s largest quarter in history with 186 MW installed…The non-residential sector…[has been flat but is expected to resume] growth in 2014…Blended average PV system prices fell 4.2% in Q3 2013 compared to the previous quarter, reaching a new low of $3.00/W…[The forecast is] 4.3 GW of new PV in 2013, up 27% over 2012…The wave of concentrating solar power installations slated for completion at the end of this year kicked off [in October] with the 280 MWac Solana project…” click here for more

    THE ECONOMICS OF DISTRIBUTED WIND, BIG AND SMALL Is There a Wind Turbine in Your Future?

    December 6, 2013 (The Energy Show via Renewable Energy World)

    “The levelized cost of energy from wind turbines is lower than every other generating source except for natural gas and hydro. It comes as no surprise that in 2012, 42 percent of the new electricity generating capacity in the U.S. was from wind — with over 45,000 operating utility-scale turbines…Wind turbines are sprouting up all over, ranging from small 2-5 kw rooftop units for homes, to 500-kw+ utility-scale turbines in coastal areas and windy mountain passes. The economics of wind turbines will continue to improve as technology advances and electric rates rise. Fortunately, electricity generated from wind (usually in the evenings) matches up very well with solar generated electricity during the day…” click here for more

    SMART WATER SYSTEMS TO TRIPLE TO $3.3BIL BY 2022 Smart Water Networks; Smart Water Meters, Communications Infrastructure, Network Monitoring and Automation Technologies, and Data Management and Analytics: Market Analysis and Forecasts

    4Q 2013 (Navigant Research)

    “…Water utilities are relying on aging or inadequate infrastructure to meet growing demand, tough environmental targets, and increasing regulatory requirements…[and] utilities need to reduce non-revenue water losses and improve their operational efficiency. Smart water networks have an important role to play in addressing these challenges…Smart water meters are a key component of smart water networks, but other monitoring and control technologies are becoming increasingly important for leak detection, pressure management, and water quality monitoring…[The industry] is hungry for change, but also conservative in its operations and restricted in its financial options. Navigant Research forecasts that the global smart water networks market will expand from $1.1 billion in annual revenue in 2013 to more than $3.3 billion in 2022…” click here for more
