The increasing number of investments in large-scale PV plant constructions worldwide are raising new questions about the industry. What options are available for financing PV power plants? Which markets will be relevant in the future? What is the role of smart renewable energy, i.e. combining energy generation, storage, and management? Experts are set to discuss these at the Intersolar Europe Conference, taking place in Munich (May 30–31). The event runs alongside Intersolar Europe, the world’s leading exhibition for the solar industry and its partners, (May 31–June 2).

Xcel Files 1,230 MW Wind Proposal Claiming $2.8Bn Customer Savings Over 30 Years

Xcel Energy has filed a proposal, seeking approval to construct the 522MW Sagamore wind facility in New Mexico and the 478MW Hale wind facility in Texas, as well as a long-term PPA in Texas for 230MW supplied by the Bonita wind facility. The utility company forecasts that this will save customers located in both states approximately $2.8 billion over a 30-year period, borne from integrating the lower-cost wind energy resources into the company’s energy portfolio. The additional 1,230 MW of wind energy is enough electricity to power more than 440,000 typical homes, according to Xcel.

Renewables Provide 23% Of US Electrical Generation, As Wind, Solar Grow Rapidly

According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA); renewables provided 23% Of US electrical generation in 2016, as wind and solar surged with an increase of 23%. Electrical generation by coal dropped by 8.30% and that from petroleum liquids & coke plummeted by 15.37%. (Solar-generated electricity is now more than double that from petroleum sources.) Electrical output attributable to natural gas and other gases increased by just 3.47% while growth in the nuclear power sector was an anaemic 1.02%. Beyond solar, wind, and hydro; geothermal also posted an impressive increase of 9.41% in 2016.
