Sales of battery-electric vehicles are expected to extend their worldwide lead over plug-in hybrids thanks to Chinese policy, according to a new report from Bloomberg New Energy Finance. BEVs took at least 60 percent of the market for all four quarters of the year that ended in September. China, where subsidies are skewed toward BEVs, accounts for the entire global gap.
The smart-thermostat market is set to grow rapidly during the next five years, with the U.S. and Canada combining for more than 14 million annual sales by 2021, Bloomberg New Energy Finance forecasts in its Energy Smart Technologies Market Outlook. Europe’s sales are expected to peak near the mid-2020s at about 12 million a year. Price reductions by Nest and Ecobee are driving sales of the internet-enabled devices, which help consumers track and reduce energy use.
South Korea is expected to add more than 1 gigawatt of photovoltaic installations this year for the first time, propelled by government support for renewable energy, according to Bloomberg New Energy Finance. The Korea Energy Agency organized its first fixed-price solar auction this year, which helped generators get financing. Annual PV growth is forecast to reach 2 gigawatts by 2020, bringing the total to over 10 gigawatts.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
