Vestas Wind Systems A/S., the world’s biggest wind turbine maker, will extend its push into China with plans to use more component contents from Chinese suppliers while also bringing models suited for varying wind conditions to the country.
LDK Solar Co., the Chinese solar- cell maker that defaulted on its bonds this year, filed for bankruptcy in the U.S. to help carry out restructurings already under way in Hong Kong and the Cayman Islands.
Solar power is at a unique place in history. It’s growing rapidly, its price is falling precipitously. Within the next 10 years, it will compete favorably with utilities for electricity sales, on price, and without subsidies. Given its rapid ascent, it might seem silly to talk about change. But the continued expansion of distributed solar power ma
Roofing systems are valuable assets designed to perform a critical function — protect the top of a building. A building’s roof may not have been designed to become the permanent platform for a heavy photovoltaic (PV) system. But throughout the world, rooftops are being converted into solar power systems as building owners, energy advisory agencies and other decision-makers attempt to capitalize on the environmental and financial benefits of installing a rooftop PV system.
The EPA’s proposed rule to regulate carbon dioxide from existing power plants emphasizes the ample flexibility it provides to states. However, careful analysis of the rule shows that it provides significant flexibility for how states can achieve the required CO2 reductions, but little flexibility on when to achieve them. In fact, most of the emission reductions it calls for are required in 2020, the rule’s first year.
