Bloated by debt, bled by corruption and battered by structurally declining sales, South African power utility Eskom Holdings SOC Ltd. is facing what’s known in the industry as a “death spiral.”
On Thursday, Wood Mackenzie Power & Renewables and the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) reported results of their analysis of U.S. solar installations in the third quarter of 2018. While large-scale solar installations fell, the residential market continued to stabilize after falling in 2017, said the analysts. Overall, they said they expect 2018 growth to be flat.
France will save 39 billion euros ($44.5 billion) if it refrains from building 15 new nuclear plants by 2060, and bets instead on renewable energy sources to replace its all its aging atomic facilities, a government agency said.
The Yellow Vests riots sweeping across France have grabbed headlines as governments gather in Katowice, Poland for the UN climate conference (COP24). This is the most widespread and violent protest in France since the 2005 suburban riots, and perhaps even 1968. While the unrest initially erupted as a protest against the latest rise in fuel taxes, which the government has now agreed to postpone, some are attributing the riots to a backlash against carbon taxes and climate action. This is a misguided conclusion.

The deal brings CoServ’s stake to 51.5 MW of the 100-MW Lapetus project. Brazos Electric Power Cooperative is the generation and transmission provider on the procurement.

The outlook for renewables in the Middle East is encouraging. Recent tenders, such as in Saudi Arabia and neighboring Egypt, have demonstrated considerable investor appetite, competitive prices, and a strong market for clean energy.
A Rhode Island program promoting solar development on polluted properties could help relieve tensions between the state’s fast-growing solar industry and conservationists concerned with preserving green space.
The Nevada National Security Site (NNSS) inaugurated the Mercury Solar Project late last month and moved it further down the path of sustainability, giving NNSA its first net-zero-energy building.
Last week, PXiSE Energy Solutions, LLC a subsidiary of Sempra Energy and Mitsui & Co. Ltd., announced that Horizon Power would be installing the company’s Active Control Technology (ACT) as the distributed energy resources management system (DERMS) in Western Australia.
Fantasy sports and the energy industry might not have much in common on the surface, but I’ve always personally approached these two passions of mine in similar ways: obsessively reading the breaking news, following my favorite experts in the community on social media, and diving deep into the available statistics to create graphs and try to come up with hot takes. I think the fantasy sports model can be used to encourage an academic and educational exercise in the energy industry, so it struck me—I should establish the first fantasy league for the energy sector!
At a mega-session during POWER-GEN International, a panel made up of utility resource planners, transmission operators and generation technology experts all seemed to come to the same conclusion: when it comes to picking energy generation technologies for the future, there is no standout technology. Each technology comes with a series of pros and cons that must be weighed in order to set a course for the future.
Marubeni Corp., the Japanese trading house for whom coal makes up about a quarter of its power generation, never expected renewable energy prices to plunge as much as they have.
India’s effort to spur its own solar power equipment industry seems to be failing, with only one company so far bidding for the nation’s tender to set up a factory.

The panel explored Electric Vehicles in particular, with an emphasis on how the coming transition to an electrified transportation sector will affect the utility grid and the demand curve

Xcel Energy Inc. became the first major U.S. utility owner to pledge to fully phase out carbon-dioxide emissions that cause global warming.
China set three-year targets for allowing more wind and solar power onto the power grid after the rapid addition of panels and windmills forced some electricity distributors to partly block that energy from flowing into their systems.
Ontario plans to cut carbon gas emissions by 30 percent from 2005 levels by 2030, setting reduction targets for industries and encouraging private investments in clean technologies.
Italian multinational utility Enel has been recognized as one of the world’s most active companies in the open innovation field.
The Czech Solar Association is sounding the alarm about planned legislation that would exclude solar PV projects being entered into future Renewable Energy Auctions. The Czech Ministry for Industry and Trade has recently submitted an amendment proposal to the law which explicitly bars solar energy from future auctions. If passed in its current version (Act. No. 165/2012 Coll., on promoted energy sources) the law would lead the Czech Republic down a needlessly expensive path, warns the Solar Association. Solar energy has proven the cheapest renewable form of energy in countless solar auctions in surrounding countries.
This week, Electric Vehicle (EV) charging network provider, ChargePoint, announced that it has raised $240 Million in Series H funding, which is more capital than any other EV infrastructure company in the world, surmising in its press release that the move to electrify transportation is accelerating.
