WASHINGTON, D.C. - In response to the President's planned remarks to expand markets for solar energy and energy efficiency in Las Vegas tonight at Sen. Harry Reid's Clean Energy Summit, Rhone Resch, president and CEO of the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) released the following statement: "Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) financing is a simple, cost-effective way for Americans to take ownership of their energy use and generation. These actions by the Administration clear the way for communities to generate their own power, and stabilize the local grid, by providing a simple financing mechanism for homes and businesses to go solar.

The Obama administration on Monday announced a slew of small measures designed to encourage the use of solar power hours before President Obama was scheduled to fly to Nevada to speak at the National Clean Energy Summit there. The measures included making an additional $1 billion in loan guarantee authority available in an existing federal program for innovative versions of the kind of residential rooftop solar projects that have become popular in places like California. But none of the announced measures would provide the impact on the solar industry of the Clean Power Plan, which was announced this month and requires Read More >>

San Diego-based EPC Selects Sunny Central 2200-US for Seven Utility-Scale PV Projects in California ROCKLIN, Calif., Aug. 18, 2015—SMA has been chosen to supply 700 MW of central inverters for seven utility-scale PV plants in California. Swinerton Renewable Energy—a San Diego-based engineering, procurement and construction company—selected the Sunny Central 2200-US, one of SMA's newest utility-scale solutions, for all of the systems. SMA will deliver the 317 inverters as construction commences. The first project—the 108 MW AC Springbok 1 Solar Farm in Kern County, California—is already under construction. All of the systems, which range from 50 to 150 MW each, are expected to Read More >>

The Energy Department today announced up to $9 million for the design of sustainable bioenergy systems that maintain or enhance the environmental and socio-economic sustainability of cellulosic bioenergy through the improvement of feedstock production, logistics systems, and technology development. This funding supports the Department's efforts to promote the commercialization of environmentally sustainable advanced bioenergy that reduces carbon emissions and enhances national security. The project will involve landowners and multi-disciplinary stakeholders in the landscape design process, establish field research to quantify and improve sustainability metrics, and assess logistics systems needed to provide high quality cellulosic feedstocks to conversion facilities for bioenergy.

Austrian energy company OMV has put a major 850MW Haiming gas-fired combined heat and power (CHP) plant project on hold in southern Germany. The company cited disappointing CHP reform proposals from the German government as the main reason for putting the project on ice, a spokeswoman confirmed. Adverse economic conditions also played a role, she added. The plant was previously expected to come online between 2017 and 2019 (see EDEM 23 September 2014). The decision to reconsider the economic viability of the project is just the latest in a long line of similar moves on the part of utilities, which have been forced Read More >>
