Technavio’s sample reports are free of charge and contain multiple sections of the report including the market size and forecast, drivers, challenges, trends, and more.

Declining cost of solar energy

In the past, the high cost and intermittent nature of renewables were the major hurdles to their adoption. One solution to the problem of intermittency is energy storage, which not only bridges the gap but is also used to increase the renewable energy penetration in hybrid systems.

The solar power industry has witnessed a price decline of more than 40% in the past decade. With the reduction in solar power price, PV adoption has gained traction, leading to the growth in the number of installations over the years,” says Thanikachalam Chandrasekaran, a lead analyst at Technavio for power research.

Need for rural electrification

Most people in developing countries, especially those living in rural areas, lack access to grid power, which indirectly impacts the economic growth of the country. In remote and rural areas, the cost of connection to the main grid is considered high and depends on various factors, such as the distance of the community from the existing main grid, population density, topography, demand pattern, and quality of power.

The high cost involved in grid extension has led various governments and communities to use stand-alone energy systems for decentralized power. The need to reduce the dependence on fossil fuels has given rise to the adoption of renewable sources, such as solar energy and wind energy. This will increase the installation of solar PV systems in the coming years.

Supportive governmental regulations

Governments worldwide support the adoption of solar PV systems by providing incentives, subsidies, and tax benefits to producers and consumers. In the US, the solar ITC is an important federal policy mechanism, developed to support the deployment of solar energy in the country,” says Thanikachalam.

The enforcement and continuation of current policies will encourage manufacturing companies to invest in R&D activities to develop cheaper and more reliable technology to bring down the cost of solar PV systems. Many end-users have embraced alternative forms of energy and are slowly discarding power generation using fossil fuels. This is expected to have a positive impact on the global solar PV systems market during the forecast period.

SANTIAGO, Chile--(BUSINESS WIRE)--SolarReserve, the industry leader in baseload solar power solutions and advanced solar thermal technology with energy storage, has received an environmental approval from the Chilean government to build a 390 megawatt solar thermal power station with 5,100 megawatt-hours of energy storage. This important milestone marks SolarReserve’s third approval of a solar thermal project that will provide Chile with a non-intermittent, 24-hour supply of energy – at a price competitive with fossil fuel based generation.

Non-Intermittent, Baseload 24-Hour a Day Solar

Utilizing SolarReserve’s proprietary solar thermal energy storage technology, the Likana Solar Energy Project in the Antofagasta region of Chile, will be comprised of three 130 megawatt (MW) solar thermal towers, each with 13 hours of full load energy storage. With 5.1 gigawatt-hours of total energy storage capacity, the facility will deliver 390 megawatts of continuous output, resulting in over 2,800 gigawatt-hours generated annually. It will operate at a capacity factor and availability percentage equal to that of a fossil fired power plant, while providing a highly competitive price of power – and with zero emissions.

“The Chilean transmission system will have difficulty accommodating large amounts of intermittent power. The Distribution Companies and Mining Sector require a firm, secure, and stable supply of electricity 24 hours a day,” said Tom Georgis, SolarReserve’s Senior Vice President of Development. “The Likana project will help lower electricity costs for Chilean families and businesses, while safeguarding grid stability.”

Highly Competitive Price of Power with No Fuel Price Volatility

SolarReserve will be bidding energy and associated capacity, from Likana and the company’s other Chilean projects, into the upcoming auction for firm energy supply issued annually by Chile’s power distribution companies.

“What’s happening in Chile is a preview of the future of solar thermal with energy storage around the world. Even more remarkable than baseload solar, SolarReserve set a new benchmark for solar thermal pricing by bidding 6.4 cents per kilowatt-hour, without subsidies, in Chile’s last auction for energy supply,” said Kevin Smith, SolarReserve’s Chief Executive Officer. “We’ve proven that solar with thermal energy storage can compete head-to-head with conventional energy on both functionality and cost.”

This achievement will have far-reaching global impacts, as grids will be able to cost-effectively incorporate solar energy that can:

  • Deliver non-intermittent baseload power that is more easily integrated into existing grids, and
  • Provide firm capacity to reliably meet demand during peak hours, generating when energy is most valuable, reducing cost and risk for electricity customers.

Minimal Environmental Impact

As part of SolarReserve’s project development and permitting process for the Likana Solar Project, the company collaborates with stakeholders and local communities to ensure minimal environmental impact. This process includes careful site selection, low water use systems, and extensive environmental studies prior to starting construction. The Likana Solar Project underwent comprehensive environmental assessment under the Chilean Impact Assessment System (Sistema de Evaluación de Impacto Ambiental - SEIA) administered by the Environmental Evaluation Service (SEA), and as a result was successfully awarded an environmental qualification resolution (Resolución de Calificación Ambiental) (RCA), which is the name for the Chilean environmental permit.

About SolarReserve

SolarReserve is a leading global developer, owner and operator of utility-scale solar power projects, with more than $1.8 billion of projects in operation worldwide, and development and long-term power contracts for 480 megawatts of solar projects representing $2.9 billion of project capital.

The French Conseil d’Etat has decided today to annul the Decree of 16 May 2013, about regulated tariffs for the sale of natural gas. Indeed, it considered that the general interest reasons which up to now were the basis of the existence of a tariff established by the State and applicable over the whole country to the 5.4 million private individual and professional customers (tradesmen, shopkeepers, etc.) were no justified.

The Conseil d'Etat thus considered that the system was contrary to European law.

The Conseil d'Etat, aware of the risk of legal uncertainty created by its decision, stated that there was no reason to call into question the already concluded contracts.

ENGIE takes note of this decision, directed at the State which must now respond to the annulment of the Decree. Indeed it is the Government’s responsibility to deal as quickly as possible with the consequences of this decision through the legislative route, taking the interest of our customers into account.

Since the regulated tariff established by the State was regarded as a guarantee by many consumers who deliberately chose it, a sufficiently long transitional phase should be organised to allow them to learn about the offers available on the market under the best conditions. Naturally, ENGIE will continue to supply its customers for as long as they wish.

The Conseil d'Etat’s decision should also apply as quickly as possible to the regulated tariffs for the sale of electricity, to avoid a distortion of competition being created.

OLYMPIC VALLEY, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--California business, labor, and public leaders gathered on Tuesday to honor the University of California as this year’s Edmund G. “Pat” Brown Award Recipient.

The California Council for Environmental and Economic Balance (CCEEB) recognized the University of California for elevating pragmatic climate change solutions that enable and empower the state of California’s environmental leadership and economic growth.

UC President Janet Napolitano accepted the Pat Brown Award on the behalf of the University of California at CCEEB’s annual policy conference on July 18, 2017 in Olympic Valley, CA. In her remarks, President Napolitano said, “I am thrilled that the ongoing efforts of UC faculty, researchers, students and staff to protect the environment are being recognized through the Pat Brown Award. California has shown that we don’t have to choose between environmental stewardship and economic vitality. As California’s public research university, UC is at the forefront of research innovation and operational reforms that thoughtfully balance these priorities.”

The University of California has been deeply engaged in research and scholarship around climate change for decades, and has accelerated its efforts under President Napolitano. In 2013, UC committed to reach operational carbon neutrality by 2025. By 2016, it had made the largest purchase of solar energy ever by a U.S. university – 80 megawatts – enough solar energy for 27,000 homes.

As a public research university, the University of California tackles climate action on multiple fronts – undertaking basic and applied research, teaching, public service, changing its operations, investing in climate solutions, and being a model of positive change.

“It is no secret that the state of California relies on the work of the University of California for developing and implementing environmental policies and regulations,” explains CCEEB President Gerald Secundy. “Look at each campus; you’ll see world-class research and ideas being developed by UC faculty, students, and staff. California businesses are able to leverage this innovation in cleaner technologies and best practices, just like state and local agencies learn from the University’s forward policy thinking.”

The University of California is not only a leader here in the state, but also internationally. In 2015, a group of 50 UC academics and researchers organized a Carbon and Climate Neutrality Summit and produced the path-breaking report, Bending the Curve: Ten scalable solutions for carbon neutrality and climate stability. This report became a key part of the California state delegation’s messaging and contribution at the Paris climate agreement negotiations.

“The University of California’s leadership exemplifies the partnership between the University and the State of California that the late Governor Pat Brown and UC President Clark Kerr envisioned half a century ago,” says Wally McGuire, CCEEB Chairman.

About the University of California

The University of California is the world's leading public research university system. With 10 campuses, 5 medical centers, 3 national labs and a network of agricultural and natural research centers, the UC system includes more than 265,000 students and 1.8 million alumni living all around the world. UC is California’s third largest employer and boasts over 190,000 faculty and researchers, many highly-distinguished in their fields.

About the Edmund G. “Pat” Brown Award

The Edmund G. “Pat” Brown Award is named after the late Governor Edmund G. Brown, the CCEEB’s founding Chairman. The award honors individuals whose achievements best exemplify CCEEB’s mission of environmental and economic balance.

Previous recipients include State Water Resources Control Board Chair Felicia Marcus, State Air Resources Board Chair Mary Nichols, State Senator Fran Pavley, the late Tom Graff of the Environmental Defense Fund, the Walt Disney Company, and Governor Schwarzenegger with Speaker Fabian Nuñez and pro Tem Don Perata.

About CCEEB

The California Council for Environmental and Economic Balance (CCEEB) was founded in 1973 as a not-for-profit and nonpartisan coalition of business, labor, and public leaders that advances strategies for a sound economy and a healthy environment.

LONGVIEW, Wash., July 19, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Talk of solar roofing is hot right now, as expected when Tesla joins the conversation. But the typical homeowner looking to replace a leaky roof now or upgrade before the leaks begin, can't wait for -- or likely afford -- the Tesla option. The nonprofit Metal Roofing Alliance explains that homeowners have options for energy efficient solar panel roofing systems that are available now.

The Metal Roofing Alliance (www.MetalRoofing.com) has a free online tool that can help homeowners see how their home would look with a new metal roof.

However, the metal roofing industry has had the ability to incorporate solar panel products for years. The technology behind metal roofs as a base for generating energy savings is tried and true, and there's no need to be on a waiting list to install it.

Here's what homeowners should know about solar energy systems and roofing before they make a roofing change:

  • Invest in a roof first, not solar. If a roof needs to be repaired or replaced within 10 years, the solar system will have to be disconnected, removed, the roof replaced, then solar rebuilt and reconnected, adding to the product cost.
  • Metal makes a great base. Solar energy systems can be installed on metal roofs with simple attachment and clip solutions that do not put holes in the roof or add ballast, reducing potential leaks.  Metal roofs will easily outlast the solar panels, making replacement easy.
  • Solar panels can be heavy. Installing solar on an asphalt roof involves either penetration or adding weight for a self-ballasted system. Both increase the possibility of roofing failures. Thin-film solar panels are now available to literally peel and stick to many metal roofing systems.
  • Metal is environmentally friendly. The metal roof, as well as the solar panels themselves, use various types of solar-to-electricity conversion and have been on the market for a number of years. All metal roofs are made of at least 25 percent recycled materials and are 100 percent recyclable.

"Nothing has greater potential to increase a home's energy efficiency than the roof," explains Renee Ramey, Executive Director of the nonprofit Metal Roofing Alliance.  "The roof can both reduce energy costs AND produce energy through the use of solar panels."

Today's residential metal roofing are made to look like common roofing material - such as asphalt shingles, cedar shake, clay tile or slate roofing - only stronger and more durable. No matter the style, solar panel systems can be incorporated either at the time of the metal roof installation or later.  Given their inherent strength, most homeowners who choose a metal roof will never have to worry about re-roofing again.
