    NEW SOLAR GOLD RUSH AHEAD PV Industry Leaders See A 'Second Gold Rush' Coming In The Solar Sector

    Michael Puttre, 9 July 2014 (Solar Industry)

    “A ‘second gold rush’ for the photovoltaic industry is coming, enabled by the ‘inevitable’ adoption of distributed generation (DG) solar power on a widespread basis [Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems Director Eicke Weber at a recent solar industry international conference]…[California grid operator President/CEO Steve Berberich said] the economics of solar power make it competitive with conventional generation sources…[and] the policies and market forces that have made it so are expected to continue in the near term…[but utility-accessible energy storage is critical to future growth and] detente between utilities and solar customers is needed to move forward …[Yingli Green Energy Americas VP Tim Larrison said] tariffs on Chinese solar cells are not only imposing additional costs on PV generation, but also squelching innovation by reducing research and development budgets and preventing new technologies from reaching key markets, particularly in the U.S…” click here for more

    U.S. OFFSHORE WIND MOVES AHEAD Mass., R.I. lead nation in wind energy efforts, report says

    Ariel Wittenberg, July 10, 2014 (South Coast Today)

    “Massachusetts and Rhode Island are ‘leading the way’ for offshore wind in the United States, according to [Catching The Wind: State Actions Needed To Seize The Golden Opportunity Of Atlantic Offshore Wind Power] by the National Wildlife Federation…[It] outlines efforts to promote offshore wind in every state on the Atlantic Coast…[cites three investments by Massachusetts] in offshore wind development…Massachusetts and Rhode Island are currently in a race to see which will be home to the first offshore wind farm in the country. In Rhode Island, Deepwater Wind has plans to develop a five-turbine farm off the coast of Block Island. In Massachusetts, Cape Wind is on track to begin construction of its 130-turbine wind farm for Nantucket Sound…There are other wind projects in the works offshore Massachusetts and Rhode Island as well…In addition to outlining states' progress in supporting offshore wind, the NWF report also emphasizes the benefits of generating energy offshore [including pollution-free power at peak demand periods and good paying jobs]…” click here for more

    BIG MRKT AHEAD FOR NEW ENERGY FUELED BIG VEHICLES Transportation Forecast: Medium and Heavy Duty Vehicles; Medium and Heavy Duty Hybrid Electric, Plug-In Hybrid Electric, Battery Electric, Natural Gas, Propane Autogas, Fuel Cell, and Conventional Vehicles: Global Market Forecasts, 2014-2035

    2Q 2014 (Navigant Research)

    "The global medium and heavy duty vehicle (MHDV) market is changing rapidly, due to rising fuel costs and environmental concerns that are pushing commercial and government fleet operators to consider investments in fuel efficiency technologies and alternative fuels. Navigant Research projects that today more than 1.2 billion light, medium, and heavy duty vehicles are on roads, and less than 5% belong to the MHDV segment. Of these vehicles, over 94% utilize a conventional internal combustion engine (ICE) powered by either gasoline or diesel…The MHDV markets’ dependency on oil has pushed governments to examine programs that will speed the adoption of…[less] expensive alternatives to petroleum-based fuels…[and fleet managers have begun seeing] a return on investment in as few as 3 years…Navigant Research forecasts that global annual MHDV sales and conversions will grow from 4.3 million vehicles in 2014 to 7.1 million in 2035…” click here for more
