    The eternal debate n subsidies. This is a report on subsidies part of the government budget (though there are quite a few off-budget subsidies in energy as well). As usual, the report triggered a good old discussion on subsidizing renewables versus fossil, and on level playing fields.

Guest Commentary: Can the growth of renewable energy be sustained? - The Denver Post - 0 views

  • Colorado's renewable energy standard has in many respects been among the more successful ones in the country. But, between the pending expiration of production tax credits for wind energy and the fact that Colorado's dominant utility has already acquired sufficient renewable resources to meet its obligation of 30 percent renewables by 2020, there is concern over whether the growth in renewable energy in Colorado can be sustained.

Solar PV Becoming Cheaper than Gas in California? | Renewable Energy News Article - 4 views

  • What does that mean? It means that a large number of solar PV project developers believe they can deliver solar electricity at a very competitive price. And these aren't mega-projects either. All of the installations will be between 4.7 MW and 20 MW – a sweet spot for PV projects.
    Possible article for LE? Grid parity seems to be approaching fast. Interesting point about the ' sweet spot'  for PV systems in the range of 4.7 to 20 MW.

Favorable Cape Wind Decision Paves Way for American Clean Energy Development, UCS Says ... - 0 views

    "Facility Could Meet up to 75 Percent of Cape Cod and Islands' Electricity Demand

    CAMBRIDGE (April 28, 2010) - Leading environmental organizations hailed today's historic decision by Interior Department Secretary Ken Salazar to provide federal approval for Cape Wind, allowing the country's first utility-scale offshore wind farm to move forward. The announcement signaled the Administration's intentions to support renewable energy development off U.S. shores, a major component of a clean energy economy and reduced dependence on fossil fuels, the organizations said.

    Today's announcement ends a nearly nine-year environmental review process, much longer than is typical for a traditional coal power plant. The decision clears the way for Cape Wind to begin the permitting process and develop a 130 turbine wind farm in Nantucket Sound, which could meet as much as 75 percent of the electricity demand for Cape Cod and the Islands."

California Proposes First Renewable Energy Storage Requirements : CleanTechnica - 1 views

    "This bill will provide the first real boost to the renewable energy storage industry, as it secures a clean energy future for California. To bring 2.25% of peak demand in storage online, Jon Petersen estimates that (with 135 MW a year of storage needed) $200 million each year will need to be invested, along with the new jobs that all that new investment brings."

Chicago Utility to Test Distributed Solar | Cooler Planet News - 0 views

  • ComEd, the electric service provider arm of Exelon Corporation (which delivers electricity to about 70 percent of northern Illinois), is planning a distributed solar array that will involve outfitting 100 Chicago-area homes with solar photovoltaic panels, and retrofitting at least 50 of those with “smart” meters, net metering, battery backup and a grid-tied status that enables them to send unused electricity from their solar energy systems back to the grid.

    The aim, according to ComEd, is to convert each home into a “mini-utility” in an attempt to prove that individual homes can act as power generators, buying and selling electricity in real-time, according to ComEd Environmental and Marketing VP, Val Jensen.
