What is community solar and is it better than installing solar panels on your home?

Article | February 24, 2020

The U.S. reached a monumental 2 million solar installations in 2019. As more people look to save money through solar energy, many different options for doing so are becoming available. The U.S. Department of Energy defines community solar as “a solar-electric system that… provides power and/or financial benefit to… multiple community members.” These voluntary programs allow community residents to enjoy the perks of solar power without the large initial investment. The solar panels and related equipment are set up in a central location, so residents don’t need to buy and install equipment on their personal properties. The power produced by these projects is then shared by a community, and the hardware is either owned by the community itself or by a third party (i.e. Jaton’s community solar projects in California).

Recognizing and solving challenges in renewable energy land usage

Article | February 24, 2020

As anyone familiar with the saga of the Spotsylvania solar project knows, an inherent difficulty in developing renewable energy projects comes in finding the right project location, both in terms of size and siting. This is one of the topics analyzed in a new report released by The Brookings Institute: “Renewables, land use, and local opposition in the United States.” It’s a hard fact that renewable generation uses more land than fossil fuel systems, with solar having slightly lower median land use than both on- and offshore-wind, despite a large variance in total land density values. While this presents an issue for renewable developers, the silver lining is that renewable energy can be sustained indefinitely on the same land base, while mines and wells will eventually run out. As a solution, the study recommends greater development on brownfields, as well as floating PV, though the authors do recognize the capped potential of floating PV at around 10% of current U.S. electricity generation.

Toyota Green Energy could focus on offshore wind for hydrogen

Article | February 24, 2020

The world’s largest automotive company, Toyota, has announced a joint venture to enter the renewable power generation industry, setting up Toyota Green Energy in its home country of Japan. While initially this will focus on powering the company’s operations with clean electricity, the long-term could see the venture shift its focus towards the production of green hydrogen for use in Toyota’s fuel-cell vehicles. Last Friday, Toyota Motor Corporation announced an agreement with Chubu Electric Power and Toyota Tsusho Corporation to establish their new partnership in July, with the purpose of obtaining and managing renewable energy resources in Japan to power the operations of the Toyota Group.
