With the continuing success of community solar pv projects within the U.S. and with other nations like the UK plus Germany amongst others having seen the rise of the so called solar co-ops in recent years below is a quick snapshot of some of the diverse range of community solar projects globally. While some in scale are larger than others it’s clear to see that there is an appetite for community solar initiatives.

With more and more homes and businesses within the UK having solar panels installed or considering having renewable electricity as part of their future the industry is within a period of upsurge in demand. This increase in demand has led to vast research and development study increases at educational institutes globally in the last few years with some truly innovative solar products being produced as a result. Such products include domestic glass units which to the untrained eye can seem like a typical stained glass window. However this glass has the capabilities to harvest the UV rays and send the energy generated to a connected USB port for energy…read the full article here..
While converting the suns energy to electricity has seen ever increasing scientific research and development over the years, from the early solar power development to the extremely impressive efficiency figures now being displayed by next generation solar panels there still remains one area that persists to be troublesome to scientific institutes. That is how to utilise all of the solar energy that you generate economically; it now appears huge leaps forward within the sector could be on the horizon.
While in the UK and the US alike there are provisions in place to deal with reimbursement of unused solar power (in the UK the export tariff, in the…read the full article here..

We have talked extensively in the past regarding the not just solar power but also the way in which it is managed from transportation to storage and more. One of the key areas that we have discussed via various news articles is the emergence and continued investment into grid management systems, not only domestic solar management systems but also large scale commercial PV systems. It is the evolving sector of energy management that has seen some huge investment in recent years from providers like the British Gas “Nest” system amongst many other that have entered the market.

While we recently reported on the amounts that had been saved north of the border in Scotland the UK as a collective has produced very respectable and encouraging figures relating to their investment in solar panels, wind power, thermal, hydro energy and more across the last couple of years. With the recently figure showing that the UK as a whole has saved close to 40 million tones in CO2 emissions the signs for the future are encouraging especially given the need to meet energy and pollution guidelines.

A recent UK Energy report has shown that Scottish renewable projects are saving the country substantial amounts of energy due to their continued renewable energy drive. While this may come as no surprise to the country itself the rest of Europe and the world was left in no doubts when recent figures were released at a recent energy summit.
How Much Energy Is Scotland Saving Annually
Recent data gathers within the country have monitored to approx one million tones of CO2 saving monthly and this figure was reiterated as the figure now and this is set to increase yet further given the amount of projects that are…read the full article here..
While many within the UK will appreciate the falling petrol prices this does represent a problem to the renewable industry as they will be now very aware what continuing or long term decrease in prices could mean to the industry. It is prudent to believe that many companies will already be factoring the changes to fuel prices into their costings and as such be speculating as to whether now is the best time to consider investing in the ROI of solar PV and other renewable projects given they can save the investment money and further continue on their current energy path.

Given the current impetus that persists within the domestic solar power industry the government has been quick to point out that they will be supporting the uptake for a long time to come and that the F.I.T. scheme will continue to be an important factor for any serving ministers. However the same can not be said for the SRES methods of funding which the government has been rather more muted about.
What Is The SRES Solar initiative
Known as the Small Scale Renewable Energy Scheme (SRES) this less often mentioned government form of funding is used to provide subsidies for the installations of systems up to…read the full article here..
With large scale investment within the renewable sector in desperate need in the coming months and years even with the 2020 objections aside it is the UK’s need to meet demand that will see it have to further invest within this sector.
How Energy Prices Have Increased By Almost £500
This is the figure by which the average hoshold energy bill has risen by over the last decade and as such is now placed the expense within the top 3 bills of most households throughout the UK. What is more concerning for UK residents is that huge government investment in to solar panels, wind power…read the full article here..
