This working paper provides a snapshot of the current investment environment for solar photovoltaic (PV) in the United States and describes the current installation trends, policy landscape, and economics.
Wind energy needs stable policy support in the United States in order to keep creating jobs.
Harnessing the Potential of Open Trade and Investment Flows in the Wind Energy Industry
This working paper maps out the structure and value chains of the wind power industry, analyzes its increasing globalization via cross-border trade and investment flows, and formulates recommendations for policymakers for the design of investment and trade policies to help realize wind energy...
China's announcement signals its commitment both to the climate conference in Copenhagen, and its intent to achieve significant domestic emissions reductions.
This review is based on the Clean Technology Fund Investment Plans that have been publicly disclosed on the Climate Investment Fund website as of 25 October 2009.
p>Wind energy systems generate electricity by using turbines to capture the wind’s energy. Many locations in the United States have good wind resources.
In the Southwest United States, an enormous solar energy resource remains largely untapped. There is already more than 500 MW of concentrating solar thermal power in the United States and Spain primarily, but there is significant scope to scale up development. As Congress oversees the nation’s transition to a clean energy economy, a homegrown renewable energy technology---concentrating solar thermal power---can help cut emissions and enhance energy security with American resources.
The state will receive $75.9 M to promote efficiency and renewable power as it looks to lead the Southeast in green job creation.
Australia and other nations rich in solar resources should invest in concentrating solar thermal (CST), a key low-carbon technology.
Globally, solar resources are abundant. Solar resources in Australia, Mexico, the Middle East, and southern and northern Africa are especially promising.
