PacifiCorp Opens 4.3GW Renewables and Storage Procurement


PacifiCorp has begun soliciting bids for up to 4.3 gigawatts of solar, wind and battery storage projects, part of a massive clean-energy growth plan that will open the utility's six-state territory to third-party renewable energy developers.
This week's all-source request for proposals (RFP) unveils hard details of the procurement plan released this spring, calling for a mix of renewables and energy storage that can be built in time to capture the value of the declining federal wind and solar tax credits. All projects must be able to start commercial operation by the end of 2024, unless they’re pumped-hydro projects which require longer lead times.

While the terms of the RFP allow for bids for different technologies, the solicitation is designed to support the long-range plans laid out in PacifiCorp’s integrated resource plan filed last year. That plan broke new ground for the 1.9-million-customer utility by setting its first long-range goals for replacing the coal-fired... Show more...
 

Germany’s Fallen ‘Solar Valley’ Sees New Life as Meyer Burger Buys Former SolarWorld Factory


Once bustling with PV research and manufacturing, Germany's "Solar Valley" fell quiet in recent years as China gained control of the global PV manufacturing sector. But the fabled valley may soon spring back to life.
Switzerland's Meyer Burger, a long-time supplier of high-tech machinery to solar manufacturers, has acquired a former SolarWorld factory and revealed plans to nurture what could become a 5-gigawatt European PV manufacturing hub in central Germany. Last month Meyer Burger announced a strategic pivot that will see it transform into a PV module maker in its own right.

While China still dominates the global PV supply chain, the increasing automation of production lines and surging solar demand in Europe could open the door to a rejuvenation of Europe's once-mighty PV manufacturing sector. Europe’s net-zero target and the coronavirus economic recovery package have further improved conditions for a comeback.

Can the Clean Energy Industry Deliver on the Biden-Sanders Climate Plan?


After effectively clinching the Democratic presidential primary, Joe Biden's campaign began work with Senator Bernie Sanders in May to create a “unity task force.” The group hoped to propose policies that appeal to moderates and progressives alike, uniting Democrats ahead of the 2020 election.
The task force’s climate-change mitigation recommendations, out this week, push further than any policy proposed in previous general election platforms. They call for carbon-free power production by 2035, net-zero emissions for new buildings by 2030 and accelerated adoption of zero-emission vehicles. The authors frame the national climate response as a matter of equity for communities that have suffered disproportionately from pollution and climate impacts, as well as a form of economic rebuilding after the coronavirus pandemic.

The climate task force brought together Democrats from across the political spectrum to hash out a shared vision for action on climate... Show more...

The Launch Is Approaching for NASA's Next Mars Rover, Perseverance


Pasadena CA (JPL) Jun 18, 2020
NASA's Perseverance Mars rover is just over a month from its July 20 targeted launch date. The rover's astrobiology mission will seek signs of past microscopic life on Mars, explore the geology of the Jezero Crater landing site, and demonstrate key technologies to help prepare for future robotic and human exploration. And the rover will do all that while collecting the first samples of Martian r

IEA floats 'green recovery' plan to boost economies, cut emissions


Paris (AFP) June 18, 2020
The International Energy Agency (IEA) on Thursday unveiled a three-year, post-pandemic master plan to simultaneously salvage the global economy and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Drawn up jointly with the International Monetary Fund (IMF), the 2021-2023 blueprint aims - in each of those years - to boost GDP growth 1.1 percent, "save or create" nine million jobs, and slash CO2 emissions b
