Utilities in the US and Europe are having to take a hard look at their business model – will it continue to be viable in an era of rooftop solar and distributed energy? As people finally realize the value of solar – that it can make them independent energy generators that don’t rely on the [...]
Community solar is capturing attention across the US as a way to get clean energy to everyone, including people who rent and whose roofs are too shaded for solar. A paper, “Community Shared Solar: Diverse Approaches for a Common Goal,” illustrates how three utilities are giving customers access to community solar in Florida, Colorado Springs and Tucson.

Freezing temperatures in both Belgium and Germany have put both countries’ power systems to the test this week, but neither country has experienced electricity blackouts despite the lack of nuclear power. Two of Belgium’s seven nuclear reactors – Doel 3 and Tihange 2 – were switched off this summer, following the discovery of cracks, cutting [...]

Although I personally do not own shares of Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA), I was certainly pleased to see the stock getting rewarded this morning after the company reported Model S production had risen to 100 cars per week at the end of the quarter, and was now up to 200. Tesla reps also stated that they expect [...]
I must admit, I was completely blown away this morning after I read that Siemens (NYSE:SI) would be bailing on solar. In a statement issued by Siemens, the company said that due to the changed framework conditions, lower growth and strong price pressure in the solar markets, the company’s expectations for its solar energy [...]
There was so much enthusiasm when high-performance battery manufacturer A123 Systems (NASDAQ:AONE) came on the scene. The promise of an advanced battery manufacturing facility pumping out batteries for next-generation electric cars while providing jobs for US workers was a bold one, and one that a lot of folks cheered. But certain realities rapidly turned that [...]
The travails of China’s top solar panel manufacturer do not seem to stop with its credibility being hit by a new problem each day. Suntech has made massive management blunders in the past for which it is paying heavily today. The company which is reeling under billions of dollars of debt has restructured its management [...]
I had a chat with a friend the other day on the likely future for humankind vis-à-vis global climate change. He asked, “What do you think it will take, Craig, for us to muster the will to do something? If there were a fire burning in a building across the street, it would be apparent [...]
