June 1st, 2019 | by David Zarembka

Hydropower has great attractions for Africa. First like coal, nuclear, hydropower, and geothermal are base load power.

Chaos often reigns on the streets of Dar es Salaam, Tanzania’s capital. Minivans, cars and motorcycles careen along half-finished roads without markings, sidewalks, or traffic lights. Pedestrians walk single-file within reach of speeding vehicles. Groups of children in matching school uniforms hold hands as they linger at the road’s edge.

I heard Jesse Watters on Fox News explain that the s***hole remarks were just harmless bar talk, but if we can agree that the White House is in fact the office of the most powerful administration in the world — and not a bar — then the following will make sense. If you think the White House is in fact a bar, you have nothing to worry about and I would suggest you stop reading further


Global Solar Demand Will Exceed 80 GW In 2017; 9.6 GW Awarded In Q3 Alone

July 19th, 2017 | by Joshua S Hill

The latest comprehensive solar tracking data from GTM Research is good news across the board for the global solar industry, which is currently tracking 17.4 GW of solar PV tenders, predicts 9.6 GW will be awarded in the third quarter alone, and expects global demand to exceed 80 GW for the first time -- in a year which actually sees smaller growth.
