    1. CA Commission Could Pre-empt County/City Authority of PV Projects

      CA Commission Could Pre-empt County/City Authority of PV Projects
      Although the Solar Trust case only deals with one project, it could lead to more requests from developers to have the commission oversee PV power plants. That could, in effect, strip counties and cities of the ability to have the final say on PV power projects (if a project is on federal land, then the federal government is in charge).

    2. Japan's Largest Solar Plant Regrets Small Storage

      Japan's Largest Solar Plant Regrets Small Storage
      At the nation's largest photovoltaic power plant in Sakai, Kansai Electric Power introduced an energy storage facility accommodating 48 nickel hydride batteries near KEPCO's substation … At Sakai, up to 10,000 kilowatts of electricity is generated during the current trial run ahead of the full operation starting in October. On cloudy and rainy days, however, the output drops to around 5,000 kilowatts and 2,000 kilowatts, respectively. To make up for the gap and achieve stable supply, KEPCO plans to release electricity accumulated in the energy storage facility on sunny days. Since the utility did not adopt highly-efficient lithium-ion batteries at the energy storage facility for financial reasons, there is a limit to the amount of electricity it can cover on bad weather days. Despite being the nation's largest photovoltaic power plant, its output is roughly one-hundredth of that of a nuclear reactor.

    11. 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?
