Boosting The Financing Of Local Distributed Renewable Energy Actors In Africa — Oil Change International Shows How It Can Be Done

July 21st, 2020 | by Jesper Berggreen

Renewable energy produced through off-grid and mini-grid wind and solar installations – called distributed renewable energy – has consistently been identified as the most effective, affordable, and resilient way to deliver electricity services to rural areas without access. However, only about 1-2% of financing for electricity in Africa is currently flowing to distributed renewable energy

A little more than a month ago, I reported on an EY report, its biannual Renewable Energy Country Attractiveness Index (RECAI), that indicated once again the United States was #1 for renewable energy investment attractiveness. It and China are basically always at the top. A big part of this is simply the scale of opportunity in these major markets (along with the cost-competitiveness of wind and solar)


Solar Equipment Manufacturer Evolves, Tesla Model Y Availability, J.D. Power’s Tesla Evaluation — CleanTechnica Top 20

July 5th, 2020 | by Zachary Shahan

The 20 most popular stories of last week on CleanTechnica were led by an interesting story of a solar manufacturing equipment maker moving into the solar cell manufacturing game (got that?), followed by a lot of Tesla stories, some hype for lithium-iron-phosphate batteries, Toyota announcing that it had done a horrendous job forecasting demand for the RAV4 Prime (leading to a battery shortfall and production suspension), Sydney inspiring the world by going 100% renewable (for electricity)
