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.

    THE NEW ENERGY DEAL IS GETTING BETTER

    Report: Utility-Scale Renewables Keep Getting Cheaper

    Sept. 19, 2014 (Up Front via Renew Grid)

    "Utility-scale wind and solar power are increasingly cost-competitive with traditional energy sources such as coal and nuclear, even without subsidies, according to [Levelized Cost of Energy Analysis - Version 8.0, which] also highlights the ongoing need for diverse power generation technologies, especially in regions with limited renewables resources…Land-based wind generation costs continue to decline dramatically…[T]he levelized cost of energy (LCOE) of leading wind technologies has fallen by more than 15% in the past year and nearly 60% in the last five years…[O]ffshore wind generation is currently at least twice as expensive as land-based wind and, therefore, not cost-competitive without subsidies…The costs of generating electricity from all forms of utility-scale solar photovoltaic (PV) technology also continue to decline dramatically…[T]he LCOE of leading PV technologies has fallen by nearly 20% in the past year and nearly 80% in the last five years…[I]n many parts of the world, utility-scale solar PV continues to increase its cost advantage over conventional generation as a source of peak energy, without any subsidies…

    “…[W]ithout subsidies, residential-scale solar PV (rooftop solar panels) remains considerably more expensive than utility-scale solar PV, raising the question of whether subsidies are distorting the long-term energy planning process…[B]attery storage technologies, a potential complement to intermittent energy resources such as wind or solar, continue to be very expensive and not cost-competitive without subsidies…Large-scale conventional generation projects (such as IGCC or nuclear) continue to face a number of challenges, including high absolute costs…” click here for more
