    QUICK NEWS, June 15: SOLAR STOCKS TO WATCH; GOOGLE’S AFRICAN WIND; BILLIONS OF $$$ AT THE GRID EDGE

    SOLAR STOCKS TO WATCH Top Stocks to Watch in Solar Energy

    Travis Holum, June 12, 2015 (The Motley Fool)

    “…[H]ere are three stocks that will tell you where the [solar] industry is headed…[The three market segments are very different]…The first stock on my list is First Solar(NASDAQ: FSLR ) , which is almost exclusively a utility-scale solar project builder. That means the company builds massive solar projects and negotiates a contract with the appropriate utility for the energy from that project over 10, 20, or 30 years. This assures long-term cash flow and a solid return on investment…SolarCity (NASDAQ: SCTY ) specializes in installing residential solar systems around the U.S. It is on target to install 1 million systems on rooftops by mid-2018…SunPower (NASDAQ: SPWR ) is unique because it makes the industry's most efficient solar panel (21.5%) and plays a part in everything from very small projects to the largest solar power plants in the world…First Solar, SolarCity, and SunPower are worth watching because they are industry leaders with very different strategies…” click here for more

    GOOGLE’S AFRICAN WIND Why Google would want to back a huge wind farm in Africa

    Katier Fehrenbacher, June 12, 2015 (Fortune)

    “…After investing close to $2 billion into solar and wind farms, mostly across the U.S., Google may now be taking that strategy to Africa. Google is in discussions to invest potentially tens of millions of dollars into the largest wind farm in sub-Saharan Africa…Called The Lake Turkana Wind Power Project...[it] is supposed to be completed in 2017 and deliver 300 megawatts to the Kenyan grid…[That is] 20 percent of all the electricity produced in the country...[It] is expected to cost close to $1 billion…Google has ponied up close to $2 billion in more than 20 clean energy projects, and has committed to buy another 1 gigawatt worth of clean energy from various farms… It’s a big and growing international business with traditional investors like Warren Buffett…Clean energy development is also a growing business in Africa…Google’s investment could also help unlock a $250 million investment guarantee from the U.S. government’s development finance institution…” click here for more

    BILLIONS OF $$$ AT THE GRID EDGE Grid Edge Intelligence for DER Integration; Operational IT/OT, Distributed Monitoring and Control, and Communications Networks: Global Market Analysis and Forecasts

    2Q 2015 (Navigant Research)

    "The global utility business faces unprecedented challenges—and opportunities—as distributed energy resources (DER) proliferate. Thus, there is a growing need for more intelligence, control, and agility in the distribution grid, particularly at the edge, where many new disruptive resources and loads are located. To date, utility efforts have been largely reactive…In the longer term, grid edge intelligence and automation will enable the proactive development of markets…North America, Europe, and Asia Pacific have experienced the greatest penetrations of distributed renewables and other resources creating disruptive loads…[but] market trends have developed differently…According to Navigant Research, revenue for global grid edge technologies for DER is expected to grow from $8.5 billion in 2015 to $14.5 billion in 2024…” click here for more
