Concentrating solar power (CSP) deployed with thermal energy storage (TES) provides a dispatchable source of renewable energy.
Establishing interconnection to the grid is a recognized barrier to the deployment of distributed energy generation. This report compares interconnection processes for photovoltaic projects in California and Germany.
More than half of the electricity produced in the southeastern states is fuelled by coal. Although the region produces some coal, most of the states depend heavily on coal imports.
This case study covers the process of successfully integrating photovoltaic (PV) systems into a low-income housing development in northeast Denver, Colorado, focusing specifically on a new financing model and job training.
This report builds on the emerging body of literature seeking to identify quantitative connections between clean energy policy and renewable energy.
The Renewable Electricity Futures Study (RE Futures) is an initial investigation of the extent to which renewable energy supply can meet the electricity demands of the contiguous United States over the next several decades.
The price of photovoltaic (PV) systems in the United States (i.e., the cost to the system owner) has dropped precipitously in recent years, led by substantial reductions in global PV module prices.
The Solar Deployment System (SolarDS) model is a bottom-up, market penetration model that simulates the potential adoption of photovoltaics (PV) on residential and commercial rooftops in the continental United States through 2030.
The Sustainable Energy in America 2013 Factbook offers a fresh look at the state of innovation in our U.S. energy portfolio. This Factbook - researched and produced by Bloomberg New Energy Finance and commissioned by the Business Council on Sustainable Energy - offers simple, easy-to-understand benchmarks on the contributions these new energy technologies are making today.
