Electrification and gradual decarbonization continue as significant global trends. Renewables and nuclear see strong growth, contributing nearly 40 percent of incremental energy supplies to meet demand growth. Natural gas grows the most of any energy type, reaching a quarter of all demand. Oil will continue to play an important role in the world’s energy mix, as commercial transportation (e.g., trucking, aviation, marine) and chemicals sectors lead demand growth.

How to Develop the US Offshore Wind Supply Chain

Article | March 10, 2020

In the longer term it is obvious that having significant manufacturing capacity in coastal US states makes more sense than making components elsewhere and sending them on long sea journeys to their installation site. However, in the short term the sector will require a great deal of imported machinery and skills. International free trade has been instrumental in creating a positive marketplace for offshore wind, by driving down costs and accelerating growth. Unfortunately, this has had contrary effects on local prosperity, where areas do not receive the benefits of investment. Public and political support for offshore wind developments can therefore be undermined.

Are Solar Workers ‘Essential’? The Industry May Soon Find Out

Article | March 10, 2020

The U.S. solar industry is preparing to argue that its workers are essential to the economy as it copes with a growing pile of government-mandated shutdowns to combat the spread of COVID-19. State-, county- and city-wide shutdowns, which are already in place in California, the nation's largest solar market, as well as New York and Dallas County, Texas, largely called for employees of “nonessential” sectors to stay home; the orders now cover about 20 percent of U.S. residents, according to the New York Times.

Solar, it’s everywhere. You’ve probably already installed it at home and now you might be looking to invest in it for your business. Something we see far too often in the commercial space is overcapitalisation or oversizing. Our client’s often say, “but Time Solar Installers have offered me a 100kW system and you’re only providing a 75kW system” or “why haven’t you used my entire roof space?”. In this post I’ll explain the ins and outs of how we determine the size of a solar system for commercial businesses so that you’ll be equipped with the tools to ensure you’re not oversizing or over-capitalising!

More Solar Ready To Help Power Pumping For SA Water

Article | March 10, 2020

SA Water’s electricity supply is about to become greener and cheaper again with the addition of another major solar power system, and an even bigger installation to soon follow. The utility says more 7,300 solar panels installed at the second pump station on its pipeline between Swan Reach and Stockwell are now connected and ready to go. “The Swan Reach to Stockwell Pipeline spans across more than 50 kilometres inland from the mighty Murray across to the northern Barossa area, and therefore requires significant energy to pump clean, safe drinking water across such large distances,” said SA Water’s Nicola Murphy While the total capacity of this new solar farm wasn’t provided, Ms. Murphy said it will generate approximately 5,224 megawatt hours of clean, green energy annually. There’s more solar energy to come for this section of pipeline, with a further 16,000 panels currently being connected at the first pump station.
