Amid polemics over rising electricity prices in Europe and the level of green energy subsidies in various countries, it is easy to lose sight of the fact that the growth in clean-energy generation is a huge success story.
This week Apple announced its plans to open a new factory in Mesa, Arizona — a facility that “will run on 100 percent renewable energy from day one.” The move will bring a manufacturing boost to the state, creating 2,000 new jobs, all without requiring additional energy from Mesa.
The road to bringing more distributed solar into the utility resource mix runs through long-term planners.
The Korea Photovoltaic Industry Association (KOPIA) and the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) have announced their formal partnership in an effort to strengthen the solar energy industries of both countries and boost the competitiveness of solar energy globally.
A number of major US companies are taking energy into their own hands, harnessing solar power to cut costs and improve the bottom line. Iconic brands are now being equated with the power of the sun, and retail giants are leading the trend.
