  1. The $123 Billion Question: Are Green Bonds Really Working?

    The green-bond market has boomed on the allure of investments that help the environment. Now, the industry is trying to show that the reality matches these ambitions. Advisers and rating companies are starting to track the environmental effect of projects funded by green bonds, such as the impact on air pollution.

  2. US Conference of Mayors Approves Resolution Calling for 100 Percent Renewable Energy in American Cities

    The U.S. Conference of Mayors in Miami yesterday approved a resolution calling for 100 percent renewable energy in cities across the U.S. by 2035.

  3. CSP Eyes Strong Growth with Thermal Energy Storage to Compete Against PV

    Concentrating solar power (CSP) has existed since 1866, but for the last couple of decades, photovoltaic (PV) has been the dominant solar technology. Now with technological advancements and energy storage, CSP is poised to make a significant comeback. 

  4. Solar Now Third Largest Renewable Source of Electricity in US

    In April, solar reached a new milestone, providing more than 2.3 percent of U.S. electrical supply, according to the latest issue of the U.S. Energy Information's (EIA) Electric Power Monthly, with data through April 30, 2017. Consequently, solar has now moved into third place among renewable sources — behind hydropower and wind but ahead of biomass and geothermal.

  5. New York Moves to Establish Energy Storage Procurement Target for 2030

    The New York State Legislature has sent to Gov. Andrew Cuomo companion bills that would lead to the development of an energy storage procurement target for the state.

  6. Solar LCOE, a Data Mining and Fact Driven Challenge

    Fully identifying and understanding real life cycle solar PV costs creates a challenge; while not addressing those costs in detail accurately and dramatically, increases project risk. The probability that one can effectively cut costs without clearly understanding what the underlying costs are, is exceptionally low.

  7. NY Green Bank’s Clean Tech Investments Reach $346 Million

    NY Green Bank’s investment portfolio reached $346.1 million in 1Q17, an achievement that is expected to ensure a total investment of about $1 billion into New York’s clean energy market, according to Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s office.

     
  8. Panel Makers Surge After Trump Proposes Solar on Border Wall

    Shares of solar manufacturers rose sharply Thursday after President Donald Trump told supporters that mounting solar PV panels atop his proposed Mexican border wall would allow the project to pay for itself.

  9. Researchers Win DOE Grant for Solar Communications Security System

    A three-year study to develop a generic cybersecurity system for monitoring communications between distributed energy resource generators — including solar — and the grid is being developed by the Coordinated Science Laboratory (CSL) at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, under a $900,000 U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) grant.

     

  10. The Many Fates of Former Solar Decathlon Houses

    Compelling. That’s what the stories behind the Solar Decathlon represent to me. Normally, I am focused on the current competition — working with the university teams and our partners to host the Energy Department’s largest public event showcasing student-built solar houses.
