1,028 Choice members across Australia have been surveyed about their experience buying and owning a solar power system and the results are quite interesting. Carried out earlier this year, the latest results were published by the consumer advocacy group on Friday. Here’s a look at some of what was revealed. While 61% reported receiving between two and five quotes before making a purchase decision, 34% received a quote from just one installer. 22% of survey respondents said they chose a company based on price this is concerning as there can be a high cost associated with very cheap solar.

5 New Solar Power Technologies in 2021

Article | April 5, 2021

In the last forty years, there has been a dynamic increase in the use of solar energy in the United States. As recently as 2018, an additional 10.6 GW of solar power was harnessed, bringing the country's total use up to 64.2 GW. Yet this apparently successful addition still only contributes 1.6% of the total electricity used across the States. However, with many new solar power technologies on the horizon, the increase could soon be much greater.

How to Develop the US Offshore Wind Supply Chain

Article | April 5, 2021

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.

A vision for renewable energy

Article | April 5, 2021

Right now, renewable energy makes up a very small part of the entire energy sector of Bangladesh. But as we move into the future, and concerns about the environment become too great to ignore, exploring cleaner and greener sources of energy becomes the need of the hour. Our economy is booming, and our population is growing, so it goes without saying that our energy requirements are immense. There is plenty of scientific evidence that burning fossil fuels indiscriminately is not sustainable in the long term, so we do need to up our game in looking at alternatives.

Renewable Energy Strategies in the Oil and Gas Sector

Article | April 5, 2021

Renewable energy is suddenly taking a very important role in the energy industry; especially solar and wind. In light of this, major players in the oil and gas industry have begun to position themselves for this forecasted energy transition. Major investments by the oil majors into renewable energy has called for the question of whether this is an indication that they are gradually transitioning into energy companies. Also, upon closer study of this trend, it is easy to classify the major players into leaders in renewable energy investment and slackers.
