A recent NREL report finds that the use of public capital (asset-backed securities, investment pools and real estate investment trusts) can lower the levelized cost of energy (LCOE) by up to $0.16 for residential projects and $0.08 for utility projects. As consumer confidence in securitization grows, prices could fall by as much as 30%.
On April 15, 2013, SEIA submitted comments to the House Ways and Means Committee's Energy Tax Reform Working Group.
The tremendous success of the ITC for solar energy projects exemplifies the importance of stable policy for the private sector and reveals a high return on public investment in solar energy in terms of economic benefits, domestic job creation, energy security and lower costs for consumers.
In 2013, the Solar Energy Industries Association is working at the federal and state levels to expand markets, remove market barriers, and increase available financing for solar projects.
U.S. Solar Market Insight® is a quarterly publication of GTM Research and the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA)®.
In 2007, the U.S. solar energy industry saw a glimpse of a gigawatt future. There was signi?cant growth in the commercial and residential PV markets and a new utility-scale segment for PV emerged with the fastest growth of all segments representing over 15 percent of the annual U.S. installed PV capacity. The ?rst concentrating solar power plant was built in more than 15 years with dozens more utility-scale projects in the pipeline. The expansion of the solar water heating market continued. Thousands of U.S. jobs were created and billions of dollars were invested. And, the industry strengthened its presence in Washington and our united coalition support across the country.
Please join SEIA and its partners to learn more about customer-solar developer power purchase agreements (PPAs). Our webinar will focus on the nuts and bolts of PPAs,including tax and finance structures. We will also review some of the underlying policies that support PPAs and the barriers, particularly in the Southeast.
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.
