WASHINGTON, DC – Rhone Resch, president and CEO of the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA), today commented on the U.S. Department of Commerce’s antidumping and countervailing duty determinations in the final phase investigation of solar products from China:
“As the end of these investigations near, it’s not too soon to take stock of what has been achieved, consider whether opportunities were missed, and, most importantly, start thinking about how to move forward.
WASHINGTON – The Solar Energy Industries Association® (SEIA®), the national trade association for the U.S. solar industry, and the Business Council for Sustainable Energy (BCSE), a coalition of companies and trade associations from the energy efficiency, natural gas and renewable energy sectors, today announced a partnership to help grow solar energy markets across the country.
At a time of intense debate over the federal budget, government subsidies for wind and solar power are more contentious than ever. The question of whether those subsidies are justified has taken on fresh urgency with the looming expiration of a major wind subsidy.
SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — South Dakota entrepreneur Brian Gramm was tailgating outside a college football game one sunny day when he wondered why he couldn't use that energy to plug in a radio.
Brendan O'Connor, born in Ireland, says he found a pot of gold on the sunny roof of his West Boylston Street restaurant when he installed 32 solar panels there four years ago.
Six states got 10 percent or more of their power from wind, solar and geothermal power in 2011. That's double the number from just a year ago. Not bad for a down year. CleanEdge released its State Clean Energy Index on Wednesday, tallying up the state of green energy and technology across the 50 states of the union as of the end of 2011.
The Obama Administration has just launched a $120 million research program for new energy materials called the Critical Materials Hub, which is designed to ensure that U.S. companies get a steady supply of rare earths and other resources needed for manufacturing solar cells, advanced batteries and other alternative energy technologies.

NEW DELHI: Indian manufacturers of solar equipment are seeking anti-dumping duty on imports from China, Malaysia, Taiwan and the US on the grounds that local industry is bleeding because of "ridiculously low" price of foreign equipment.
The industry wants anti-dumping in imports of solar photovoltaic (PV) cells and modules, and has filed an application to the directorate general of anti-dumping and allied duties (DGAD).
Renewable energy needs help. Technological innovation has significantly reduced the cost of solar panels, wind turbines and other equipment, but renewable energy still needs serious subsidies to compete with conventional energy. Today, help comes mostly in the form of federal tax breaks.
