Clean Power The Chinese government has announced a pilot program to jumpstart dispatchable solar in a 20-project Commercial Demonstration Pilot Program for a total of over a gigawatt. Out of 109 applications, BrightSource Energy's 135 MW Delingha tower was one of only 20 projects chosen for the pilot program.
CleanTechnica Exclusive State-of-the-art offshore wind is now on such a gigantic scale off the coasts of Germany, Denmark, and the UK that it will be difficult for the US to catch up: it has lagged decades behind. But the Obama Administration has tried, and the Clinton Administration can further overcome the obstacles.
Cap And Trade For years, climate policy was a simple "Left" versus "Right" battle. On the Right, we had a long list of climate deniers, and on the Left, climate and clean energy policies. Congressional Republicans could be relied on to obstruct whatever climate and clean energy legislation Democrats proposed, from cap and trade to a carbon tax to mandates like the Clean Power Plan.
Elon Musk is proposing adding building-integrated solar roofs to his arsenal of sustainable home energy appliances. Instead of an "aftermarket" attachment to an existing roof, like a solar array is today, he suggests actually making the roofing material itself generate solar power.
Clean Power Secrecy about the price that California utilities pay for natural gas contracts is a new sign that PV has now passed market price parity at wholesale (as well as at retail: for rooftop customers). The utility-scale solar industry used to have to compete against a "Market Price Referent" (MPR: the cost of an average natural gas contract).

Clean Power The solar panels manufactured today will need to power a climate-changed world over the next 25 to 50 years. They will need to be engineered to continue to operate in a climate that will gradually become more extreme. Many regions will hold more moisture in the air, while others will become drier and warmer, climate scientists predict.
CleanTechnica Exclusive Australia's Genex Power is recycling a disused gold mine as a 400- 450 MW pumped hydro storage project, with the potential to store and generate around 2,225 MWh daily, making this Australia's largest energy storage project by far.
CleanTechnica Exclusive China's largest coal company, Shenhua Energy, has signed a MOU with SolarReserve to build the largest amount of completely dispatchable solar electricity in the world: 1 GW - about the capacity of a nuclear plant.
CleanTechnica Exclusive ACWA Power has now demonstrated fully dispatchable solar for when the sun doesn't shine, at Bokpoort in South Africa. Image Credit: ACWA Power Running around the clock for two weeks, ACWA Power's 50 MW Bokpoort project is an example of Concentrated Solar Power (CSP), the solar that can be called on day or night, because when it has integrated thermal energy storage in molten salts, it is dispatchable solar.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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
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".
