    5. Good Overview of "Post-stimulus Financing" of Renewables

      Good Overview of "Post-stimulus Financing" of Renewables
      Money is flowing worldwide for many forms of renewable energy, as the industry presses forward with dramatic growth. CleanEdge reported US$188.1 billion in global revenue for biofuels, solar and wind energy in 2010, a 35.2% surge over 2009. Bloomberg New Energy Finance (BNEF) found that clean energy investment worldwide reached $243 billion in 2010, nearly double the sector investment just four years earlier. And venture capital investment for clean technology in the US rose 54% in the first quarter of 2011 compared with the same period one year earlier, in a trend led by solar energy companies, according to Ernst & Young … But will the growth continue as stimulus funding winds down?

      Highly Select Renewables Trade Show For Marines
      Thirteen pre-selected vendors have set up camp in a remote area that simulates a Marine Corps outpost in Afghanistan. Most of the companies are commercial suppliers of renewable energy systems. Marine leaders plan to spend millions of dollars on clean-energy technologies that will help bring down fuel costs and increase the energy self-sufficiency of deployed forces in combat zones.

    9. Analysis: Sunk costs of Hydro, Nuke, Coal, & Nat Gas Suppresses Renewables & Storage

      Analysis: Sunk costs of Hydro, Nuke, Coal, & Nat Gas Suppresses Renewables & Storage
      The increased cost comes from curtailment of renewable generation that occurs because thermal generators will choose to stay at a minimum level of operation even when uneconomic for them to do so at that specific time interval. That is to say the costs of turning off and turning back on are higher than the costs of operating below cost for a few hours. Because much of the electric grid is “inflexible”, this is an important area to consider for continued integration of renewables. Thus, this is one of the main reasons for consideration of storage technologies to reduce curtailment of wind and solar generation: renewables will be curtailed even before the total electrical demand becomes less than instantaneous renewable generation due to the inflexibility of the thermal power plants.

      Stocks: Is It Time to Buy Exide [and other battery cos.]?
      Companies like Advanced Battery (ABAT), A123 (AONE), Valence (VLNC) and Ener1 (HEV) have lost from 17% to 37% of their value in five days. But even conservative battery companies like Exide Technology (XIDE) and Johnson Controls (JCI), which make conventional lead acid products, have taken a huge hit. We have to ask, are people going to stop driving their cars when their batteries burn out? Are companies going to stop using their fork-lifts?...
