    US, India glimpse a bright future together in solar power
    The Washington Post    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
    There are few places in the world where the opportunity for solar power is more blindingly obvious than India. There are also few industries where the possibility of collaboration between India and the United States is more tantalizing.

    Lobby: Solar is Europe's most installed power source
    Bloomberg    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
    Solar power became the most-installed energy source in Europe last year for the first time as subsidies drove investment to records, the European Photovoltaic Industry Association said. Installations of photovoltaic panels in the region surged 63 percent to 21.9 gigawatts, surpassing all new wind and gas-fired power capacity combined, a report shows. Wind and gas plants connected in 2011 amounted to about 9.5 gigawatts each, it said. More

    Study: Solar energy not oversubsidized
    Desert Dispatch    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
    A study by the University of Tennessee's Baker Center for Public Policy says that solar energy is subsidized at about the same rate as other energy sources. The industry "is consistent with the less-than-smooth paths that many American industries have traveled as they entered the mainstream of commerce," the study said. It added that solar power is in a stage "where government incentives can be most critical in helping new energy technologies become significant sources of energy production." More

    Bureau of Land Management plans to trim solar plant's impact on environment
    The Desert Sun    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
    At 1,208 acres, the Desert Harvest solar project is already the smallest of the large-scale solar plants proposed for public land east of the Coachella Valley in California. But the U.S. Bureau of Land Management wants to cut down the 150-megawatt photovoltaic plant by 164 acres, while allowing the project developer enXco to use high-profile racks that would raise the panels 15 feet off the ground. The changes to enXco's original plans for Desert Harvest, which would produce enough power for about 45,000 homes, are part of the BLM's draft environmental impact report on the project that was released last month.
