The International Energy Agency has released its Photovoltaic Power Systems Programme (PVPS) Annual Report 2013, detailing solar market conditions and updating installation data for each of the 29 member countries. The report also provides updat
The Environmental Defense Fund (EDF) has partnered with the UCLA Luskin School of Public Affairs to produce a report detailing the impacts of climate change on communities in the LA metro area. The report also describes the potential for solar investment in each of the communities and the policies that help support that investment.
A recent joint report from the National Renewable Energy Laboratory and the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory finds that installed PV system prices in Japan are 6% lower than U.S. prices in the residential sector, and 20% lower than U.S. prices in the small commercial sector. Some of this difference is attributed to lower soft costs in Japan.
