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, April 9: A CLOSER LOOK AT SOLAR JOB NUMBERS; THE INCREASING U.S. EMISSIONS CUTS FROM WIND; WHERE OPPORTUNITY WILL GROW IN THE CAR BIZ

    A CLOSER LOOK AT SOLAR JOB NUMBERS Deeper Data Dives Yield More Certainty On Solar Jobs

    Mark Del Franco, April 3, 2014 (Solar Industry)

    “…[Through its 2013 National Solar Jobs Census, The Solar Foundation (TSF)] is providing legislators and policymakers with access to richer, more detailed data than…[government data that] lacks the depth needed to make informed decisions…By themselves, the raw numbers do not divulge anything else about the worker, and as such, are unlikely to provide little basis to make a decision…For gathering information about solar jobs, the organization asks human resource professionals the percentage of time a worker spends performing a solar-related task…[Such methodology] recently yielded this significant statistic: Nearly 90% of all solar workers spend 100% of their time on solar-related activities…” click here for more

    THE INCREASING U.S. EMISSIONS CUTS FROM WIND Wind energy secures significant CO2 emission reductions for the U.S.

    April 4, 2014 (American Wind Energy Association)

    “Rapid development of the U.S. wind energy industry has led to significant reductions in power sector carbon emissions. In 2013, the U.S. wind fleet reduced power sector emissions by 96 million metric tons, or 4.4 percent, the equivalent of taking 16.9 million cars off the road…Electricity produced by a wind project results in an equivalent decrease in electricity production at the most expensive currently operating power plant, which is almost always the least efficient fossil-fired power plant…[W]ind energy also greatly reduces a variety of health-harming air pollutants, including smog-forming sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxides, dangerous particulate matter, mercury, and other toxins…” click here for more

    WHERE OPPORTUNITY WILL GROW IN THE CAR BIZ Alternative Revenue Streams for Automakers; Plug-In Electric Vehicle Adoption and Sustainable Transportation: Vehicle-to-Grid, Vehicle-to-Building, Home Energy Management, Solar Energy, EV Charging, Carsharing, and Smart Parking Services

    1Q 2014 (Navigant Research)

    “Automotive manufacturers are making the first inroads into new markets not directly related to vehicle sales. They are selling home energy management (HEM) systems and residential PV units; offering carsharing services and smart parking applications; and developing the tools that will allow plug-in electric vehicle (PEV) drivers to participate in grid services programs…While Navigant Research believes that automotive original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) will participate in these markets to a growing degree, it is not as likely that they will be significant revenue generating opportunities in the near term. Navigant Research forecasts that global OEM revenue from new services related to PEVs and sustainable transportation will grow from $426.6 million in 2014 to $5.3 billion in 2023…” click here for more
