Ontario should import low-cost hydroelectric power from Quebec
Toronto Star
Their highly radioactive waste will linger forever, but the elderly nuclear reactors that provide half of Ontario’s electricity will soon reach the end of their lives. And the task of rebuilding them, currently in the planning stages, will almost certainly burden the fiscally crippled province with even more debt while electricity prices maintain their steeply upward trajectory for decades to come.

BNEF: Global clean energy investment surgesin Q2
Renew Grid
Global clean energy investment jumped to $63.6 billion in the second quarter of this year (Q2'14), up 33 per cent compared to Q1'14 and 9 per cent compared to Q2'13, according to a new report from Bloomberg New Energy Finance. The report says Q2'14 was the strongest quarter for investment since Q2'12, which reached $69.6 billion, and was down only $14.4 billion from the quarterly record of $78 billion in Q2'11. Last quarter's strong figures were driven by a combination of big financings for wind and solar projects sized in the hundreds of megawatts, as well as busy activity in the installation of small-scale rooftop photovoltaics.
