WRI’s new report, in collaboration with CDF-IFMR, looks at the market potential for clean and renewable energy in rural India.
Could a major industrialized country be powered entirely by renewable energy? Germany wants to be the first to try.
This paper analyzes the global integration of the
solar photovoltaic (PV) sector and looks in detail at the industry’s recent growth patterns, industry cost structure, trade and investment
patterns, government support policies and employment generation potential.
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.
p>Solar photovoltaic systems generate electricity using technologies that capture the energy in sunlight.
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.
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.
Reducing Emissions with Concentrating Solar Thermal Power
This report examines Concentrating Solar Thermal power (CST), a renewable energy resource that presents policy-makers and investors with a significant potential for reducing carbon dioxide emissions from the power sector.
p>The solar service model is an innovative way for companies to switch to solar power without making typically
