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, December 4: A COMING SOLAR-NAT GAS PARITY; PUBLICLY TRADED WIND COMPANY PAYS OFF; $4.5BIL, 9X GROWTH IN DATA CENTER EFFICIENCY BY 2020

    A COMING SOLAR-NAT GAS PARITY Solar to Become Competitive with Natural Gas by 2025; Solar electricity will reach cost parity in 10 major regions, accelerating adoption without subsidies, and will even benefit from abundant natural gas

    December 3, 2013 (LUX Research)

    "Far from being bulldozed by cheap natural gas, unsubsidized utility-scale solar electricity will become cost-competitive with gas by 2025, according to Lux Research. In fact, increased gas penetration actually benefits solar, by enabling hybrid gas/solar technologies that can accelerate adoption and increase intermittent renewable penetration without expensive infrastructure improvements…The levelized cost of energy (LCOE) from unsubsidized utility-scale solar closes the gap with combined cycle gas turbines (CCGT) to within $0.02/kWh worldwide in 2025…led by a 39% fall in utility-scale system costs by 2030 and accompanied by barriers to shale gas production – anti-fracking policies in Europe and a high capital cost in South America…” click here for more

    PUBLICLY TRADED WIND COMPANY PAYS OFF Pattern Energy Rides Wind To Fuel Cash For Dividends

    Marilyn Alva, November 25, 2013 (Investor’s Business Daily)

    “…Pattern Energy Group (PEGI), a wind-power outfit that went public in early October, prides itself on its stability and predictability…Analysts say Pattern's structure is similar to a master limited partnership used for natural gas pipelines and other assets meant to generate cash flow to be paid out to investors as dividends…The company's six current wind-power projects in the U.S. and Canada operate under long-term fixed prices…[and sold to ‘highly creditworthy’ companies…” click here for more

    $4.5BIL, 9X GROWTH IN DATA CENTER EFFICIENCY BY 2020 Data Center Energy and Infrastructure Management; Software and Services Market Trends, Key Functionalities, Supply- and Demand-Side Market Dynamics, Data Center Energy Efficiency, and Global Market Forecasts

    4Q 2013 (Navigant Research)

    “Data centers around the world are increasingly becoming economic hubs for all forms of businesses. This is driving significant growth in the need for data center capacity…As data centers’ importance and capacity have grown, so have their costs. One of the largest operational costs of a data center is energy consumption. Businesses are struggling to both understand and contain these costs…Data center infrastructure management (DCIM) software and services…are opening tremendous opportunities…[by] enabling deep visibility into all aspects of a data center’s operations…[and] many of the market hurdles (such as risk aversion by clients and awareness of DCIM capabilities) have dissipated…Navigant Research forecasts that global DCIM spending will grow from $663.2 million in 2013 to more than $4.5 billion in 2020…” click here for more
