Report: Renewables Can Supply All Of USA Power Needs

A new report lays out the reasons and means to alter the United States’s energy supply entirely to renewable energies. It examines the fall in wind and solar costs and the fact that solar growth has exceeded energy advocates’ expectations. It states that The United States has the technical potential to achieve its electricity needs more than 100 times over with solar energy and more than 10 times over with wind energy. Detailed studies on clean energy systems have shown that there are no obstacles in achieving a move to 100% renewable energy; it is entirely possible to make a complete transition at a cost that would be comparable or less than is currently spent on dirty energy.

E.ON CEO Unimpressed With Government Policy Changes; Calls For Market Stability

Michael Lewis, CEO of E.ON Climate and Renewables GmbH, has voiced caution on the UK government clean energy policy reversals. “The UK has been E.ON’s largest market in terms of gross investment but since the election last year, there have been a number of very substantial policy reversals here. This sends completely the wrong signals to investors.” He outlined that, the “EU generally and the UK specifically needs to come together and deliver some coherent policies across the renewable energy area”.

Chile Emerges As The Clean Energy ‘Tiger’ Of Latin America

Chile now plays host to the largest PV plants in Latin America. According to a CIFES report, the first quarter of the year saw an increase of around 254MW in solar, in addition to 6MW wind and small hydro and biomass projects. With this, the country continues to hold its position as the largest solar market in Latin America. While 10% of Chile’s power demand is now successfully met through renewable energy, their current volume is set to double under mandates set by new legislation, setting a new objective of 20% renewable energy in 2025, as well as further targets during the preceding years.

Electric Vehicles – An Astonishing Opportunity For Utilities, Storage And Grids

Utilities have been slow to adopt renewable innovations like wind and rooftop solar, according to some critics, however, utilities now have the opportunity to seize a share of the $400bn US petrol market from the oil companies. Capturing market share for light-duty vehicles alone, “power sales would rise by about 25%, adding roughly $100bn per year to electric utility revenues and saving car drivers about $300bn a year”, states Michael Shepherd, Chairman of E-Source, highlighting a superb opportunity for utilities to boost significantly the growth of EV transportation.

Stunning Growth of Clean Energy In Mexico

The recent state power auction in Mexico awarded 5.38 million megawatt-hours of energy to renewable energies; solar won 74 percent and wind won the remaining 26 percent. Solar in Mexico will now grow by an astonishing 521 percent in 2016, far exceeding projections made only months earlier. With the concentration of project developers in the country now matching the strategic objectives of its government, Mexico has the resources to become a strong and internationally significant clean energy hub.

Energy Efficiency And Production: California Leads The Way

Even with the 2nd largest energy consumption and expenditure in the USA , California has some of the lowest per capita consumption patterns in the country. This; when combined with its robust renewable energy production (nearly 4000MW solar projects installed), and a more diversified energy portfolio, sees it trailblazing towards its landmark energy targets. In addition, shielding its economy from the volatility of oil prices, California provides a model that can be used nationally, as well as globally.
