The Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) recently released Utility Scale Solar 2012, which examines trends in installations costs, operations and maintenance costs, capacity factors and power purchase agreement prices for all utility-scale solar technologies.
A new study from the National Renewable Energy Lab (NREL) finds that operating costs associated with additional power plant cycling caused by the integration of renewables to the grid are negligible when compared to fuel costs offset by displacing fossil fuels with renewable energy.
A new report from the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) finds that Chinese success in solar manufacturing is driven primarily by scale and supply-chain development, instead of low labor costs and/or direct subsidies. The report suggests that Chinese success could be replicated in the U.S.
