Ohio regulators on Thursday threw up a hurdle for a solar project that's slated to be the state’s largest, rejecting plans from American Electric Power’s Ohio subsidiary to charge ratepayers for costs to build the 300-megawatt project. The decision, which also encompassed another 100-megawatt AEP Ohio project, shouldn’t come as a complete surprise: in January commission staff recommended against the project, arguing the power isn’t needed in the state. Though AEP Ohio called the decision "disappointing" in an email to Greentech Media, the utility said the projects could go on even after the rejection.

Early this month, three community-choice aggregators and one municipal utility serving much of California’s San Francisco Bay Area distributed energy storage-plus-solar solicitation. It breaks ground on multiple fronts. First, it’s one of the largest-ever efforts to aggregate distributed energy resources (DERs) at a scale that can help California’s power grid meet its capacity needs. Second, it’s being launched by CCAs, the city or county energy procurement entities that are taking over an increasing share of customers from the state’s investor-owned utilities — and thus, an increasing share of responsibility for securing the state’s long-term clean energy needs. Then, of course, there are the blackouts. East Bay Community Energy, Peninsula.

Britons are hoping the grid will hold steady this winter after a report on the country’s biggest outage in a decade was put on hold. The government investigation into the cause of an Aug. 9 blackout that affected around a million British customers is on ice pending the outcome of national elections on Dec. 12, with insiders saying it likely won’t get published until next year. A spokesman confirmed that U.K. electricity system operator National Grid ESO had not made any changes to its operating procedures following the outage. “This has happened only three times in 30 years, and Great Britain has statistically one of the most reliable energy networks not only in Europe, but anywhere in the world,” said Ben Davis, external affairs manager. A.

Today, around 5 percent of global offshore oil and gas wellhead production is used as fuel to power offshore production platforms. However, using wellhead production to power operations reduces sales volumes and increases the carbon footprint of operations, which in turn poses a potential tax burden for the oil and gas companies in the future. This presents a business case for big oil to power their production operations with renewables, and some companies are beginning to explore it. Around 16 terawatt-hours per year is used to power offshore oil and gas platforms globally, roughly equivalent to Croatia’s entire annual domestic electricity consumption.

Due to its high penetration of behind-the-meter renewables and energy-only market structure, Australia’s National Energy Market is on the cutting edge of the energy transition. Late last month, Ben Kellison, Wood Mackenzie's head of grid edge research sat down with Chloe Munro, former chair of the ACCC/Australian Energy Regulator, and Phil Blythe, Founder & CEO of Greensync, for a discussion on Australia's rapidly evolving power market. Ms. Munro opens the conversation by noting that with now well over 2 million rooftop solar installations, Australia has "too much sun" and asks, "what do we do with it?".

Starting next year, offsite corporate deals are expected to become the largest source of business-led solar procurement in the United States. Procurement from offsite solar power purchase agreements is expected to triple between 2019 and 2020, and will remain the largest source of business-led solar procurement through 2024, while onsite commercial & industrial C&I solar remains relatively flat. At the Solar Energy Industries Association’s recent Solar Goes Corporate event, Colin Smith and I shared on changes to C&I solar in the U.S., including how the competitive landscape of the growing offsite solar market will diversify as more developers enter and grow in the space. The rise of utility-scale. The robust pipeline of utility-scale project.

Democratic presidential candidates Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, want grid operator New England ISO to give renewable energy a bigger role and fossil fuel-fired generators a smaller one. That’s the gist of a to ISO-NE CEO Gordon van Welie, signed by Warren, Sanders and the senators representing Massachusetts, Connecticut and Rhode Island, taking issue with what they call ISO-NE’s "patchwork of market reforms aimed at preserving the status quo of a fossil fuel-centered resource mix.".

This week, we offer our second installment of the Deep Decarbonization Draft — our fantasy sports event for energy and climate nerds. Last year’s draft inspired similar versions at conferences and in the classroom. We’re bringing the game back by popular demand. The premise is simple: Shayle and Stephen choose their teams of decarbonization technologies and methods, and then pit them against each other to determine who’s best at saving the planet. This year’s list climate solutions comes from Project Drawdown. You can find their. Producer Daniel Woldorff has anonymized the list. We need to choose seven draft picks from the 80+ solutions across seven sectors. After all the picks, one steal is allowed. Once the scores are locked in, we’ll tall.

JinkoSolar, the largest global producer of solar modules, marked a “turning point” in the third quarter of 2019, nearing the last mile of its transition to monocrystalline wafer capacity, which is becoming the industry standard. The Chinese manufacturer said it will turn of mono wafer capacity at the end of 2019 into 18 gigawatts by Q2 2020. With its shift towards mono nearly complete, the company says its well-positioned to take advantage of a rebound in Chinese demand — projects delayed in Q3 due to policy uncertainty should carry into Q4 and Q1 2020 — and the proliferation of global renewables policies. “With domestic demand rebounding strongly and overseas demand driven by grid parity and aggressive clean energy targets, we expect the f.

Industrial heat, vital for making things like glass and concrete, has been lumped in with the "hard problems" of decarbonization. There's a roadmap to decarbonize the electric grid and ground transportation. The pathway is not so clear for tasks like air travel, long-distance shipping and energy-intensive industrial processes. Serial entrepreneur Bill Gross decided to tackle the heat problem, not by inventing a new heating technology, but improving one that already exists. Concentrated solar power (CSP) plants reflect sunshine into a small area that reaches high heat; they can produce steam, but have not reached sufficient heat for many high-value industrial applications. Gross' new company, Heliogen, brought in machine vision to crank thin.

Democrats in the U.S. House Ways and Means Committee on Tuesday unveiled in the latest attempt to extend tax credits for renewable technologies. The Growing Renewable Energy and Efficiency Now, or GREEN, Act would extend the investment tax credit for solar and offshore wind for five years, and keep a 60 percent production tax credit for onshore wind — set to expire this year — for five years.

Democrats in the U.S. House Ways and Means Committee on Tuesday unveiled in the latest attempt to extend tax credits for renewable technologies. The Growing Renewable Energy and Efficiency Now, or GREEN, Act would extend the federal Investment Tax Credit for solar and offshore wind for five years and keep a 60 percent Production Tax Credit for onshore wind — set to expire this year — in place for five years.

Last week, the solar industry met Maxeon Solar Technologies, a that will pull SunPower’s global solar panel manufacturing and sales into a new company based in Singapore. Expected to close next year, the split will leave a pure-play U.S. distributed solar and services company in SunPower, alongside the industry’s newest solar panel manufacturer, Maxeon. In an interview, Maxeon CEO Jeff Waters, formerly head of SunPower’s Technologies arm, said he plans to double Maxeon’s global market share from around 2 percent today to about 4 percent in the company’s "early years."
