Fracking and Solar: Friends, Foes or the Bridge to Clean Energy Adoption?

Breakdown: Penetration of Renewable Energy in Selected Markets
The penetration of renewable energy into the electricity supply mix has been much in the news recently. During the first quarter, Portugal generated three-quarters of its electricity with renewable energy. Meanwhile, in Germany, one-fifth of all electricity was generated with renewables, most of that from new sources of renewable energy, such as wind and solar. And recently, at a conference in San Francisco, attendees heard calls for generating not just 100 percent of electricity supply with renewable energy, but far more ? 200 percent to 300 percent of generation ? in order to meet the need for heating, cooling, and transportation as well.
Solar Under Assault Again in Louisiana
A slew of bills introduced in Louisiana?s legislature this year were challenging the state?s solar incentives. At least one of which, House Bill 705 to gradually phase out the state?s solar and wind tax credits by 2020, has moved forward. While that bill might make some sense, other bills, like a bill to eliminate tax credits immediately, seem to b

China Solar Update: Trina Improves, Suntech Scores Extension, Beijing Awaits ...
Several news bits from the solar sector show more signs of stabilization after a 2-year-old downturn, even as an ongoing trade war looks set to escalate.

US Solar PV Manufacturer Suniva Plans Expansion
It's been a tough several years for solar PV manufacturing. The common refrain has been that Chinese competition has undercut solar cells and modules made elsewhere to the point of market instability. That's why the U.S. laid out penalties on Chinese solar imports last year, and why Europe is positioning to do so now.
Ontario Loses WTO Appeal: What Happens Next?
After a lengthy appeal process, the WTO recently ruled in favour of Japan and the European Union in a case over Ontario's domestic content requirements (DCR) for renewable energy projects under the province's FIT Program. In light of this decision, the DCR, which mandate that project developers procure 50-60 percent of the value of their installations from equipment assembled or manufactured in Ontario, are now effectively illegal under the multilateral WTO agreement. As a result, Ontario's provincial government, which oversees the administration of the FIT Program, is now in a position in which it must make a policy choice which will likely have far reaching political and economic consequences as well as a significant impact on the province's renewable energy industry.
