Charting The Fall Of Solar Prices

August 20 -- The prices of solar cells are falling rapidly, and will keep doing so for the next few years. The big questions revolve around the rate of the price declines. And the panels themselves aren't the only place where cost reductions will be found. America has very high "soft costs" -- installation, permitting, marketing etc. Whittling down these expenses will help, too. >>View Article

Business Leaders Believe In Clean Energy

August 20 -- Maryland has repeatedly shown leadership on climate change and the clean-energy solutions that will both tackle the problem and provide economic growth. In order to continue this leadership, Maryland faces an important choice: whether to take another step forward on clean energy and reap the economic and job-creation benefits, or to settle for less. Gov. Martin O'Malley made the call late last month for the state to make the step forward, and we applaud his leadership. >>View Article

August 19 -- The one thing everyone working on energy issues in America can agree upon is non-existent energy policy action at the national level.

August 19 -- Better weather and power forecasting has many benefits. Among the most financially significant is improving the economics of renewable from wind and solar energy as well as fostering integration with conventional sources such as hydro and fossil. >>View Article

The American Energy Markets Want More Wind Power

August 19 -- A recent “Matt Lewis & The News” guest post got a few things wrong on wind power – particularly the legitimate business case for renewable energy. A $269 billion industry last year, with $25 billion in wind business alone, the private sector would probably beg to differ with suggestions that “interest is actually declining” for wind. From strong public support to genuine business interest, renewable energy no longer depends on ideology to communicate its value. >>View Article

Tilting Towards Windmills

August 16 -- The 1996 Olympics in Atlanta did not all go IBM's way. For all its technical prowess, the computer giant managed to bungle the reporting of some competition results. On the plus side, it was at the Games that IBM first deployed Deep Thunder, a novel computer model which warned the organisers when and where to expect inclement weather—and correctly predicted that a thunderstorm forecast by other meteorologists would not affect the closing ceremony. Deep Thunder has since gone through countless iterations, or which the latest, called the Hybrid Renewable Energy Forecaster (HyREF) IBM unveiled on August 12th. >>View Article

Flexible Grid, Renewable Energy Offer Hope For Future

August 16 -- Aug. 14, 2003, was a dark day in U.S. history -- in a lot of different ways. It started off as a quiet Thursday. Then a single tree limb in Ohio came crashing down, touching off a power outage which cascaded across eight states and parts of Canada, leaving 50 million Americans in the Northeast in the dark. Commuters were stranded. Businesses closed. People sweltered in the heat. And the U.S. economy took a huge beating, losing an estimated $10 billion. >>View Article
