The Sublease provides Atlantis a berth for tidal turbine deployment in the Bay of Fundy, within the demised area of seabed allocated to FORCE under its Head Lease Agreement with Her Majesty the Queen in Right of the Province of Nova Scotia. Subsea electrical cables are currently being laid to each of the four berths at FORCE, providing offtake capacity back to the FORCE's onshore substation, near the town of Parrsboro, NS. The Sublease was granted following conclusion of a C$5 million Grant Agreement with Sustainable Development Technology Canada, which was signed in June 2014, and a Project Agreement with the [...]

After falling by about 50 percent from 2009 through 2014, pricing for solar glass is set to commence a rebound starting next year, as anti-dumping duties levied by the European Union go into effect on Chinese suppliers. Average global pricing for glass used in photovoltaic (PV) solar is expected to fall to $4.60 per square meter this year, down from $10.40 in 2009, according to IHS Technology (NYSE: IHS). However, pricing will begin to stabilize and begin a long-term increase starting next year. By 2018, solar glass pricing will increase to $5.90 per square meter, up 11 percent from the low [...]

Commercial properties in the U.K. benefit from roof-mounted PV systems with east/west orientation. Photovoltaic installations with east/west orientation generate around 30% more solar power than south-facing systems fitted to flat roofs of the same size. This is due to lower angles of inclination that allow the solar modules to be fitted without any gaps between the rows, meaning that roof space is put to full use. The imminent cuts to subsidies in the U.K. are boosting the attractiveness of east/west installations in the region, especially for businesses which consume the solar power they generate on site in order to reduce their ongoing [...]
