Will Falling Oil Prices Kill Wind and Solar Power? with Dr. Steven Chu
Static Preview

Will Falling Oil Prices Kill Wind and Solar Power? Dr. Steven Chu who served as the U.S. Secretary of Energy from January 21, 2009, to April 22, 2013.

During your time at the Department of Energy the deployment of renewable energy in the U.S. doubled. Is the fall in fossil-fuel prices killing the business case for renewables?

The decline in fossil-fuel prices does have some effect, but remember that 78 percent of the economies of the U.S. have state-mandated renewable portfolio standards. They require that a specified fraction of electricity must come from renewable energy. For example, in California the goal is 33 percent renewable energy by 2020.

Right now renewable electricity is roughly 13 percent of total electricity generated in the U.S. Half is hydropower and the other half is mostly wind energy, with some solar, biomass and geothermal. Renewable energy costs have come down significantly. Even if natural gas, which is the cheapest form of electricity generation today, stays at $4 per million Btus [British thermal units], wind without subsidy is almost as inexpensive.

Electrical generation in the sunnier parts of the U.S. is also approaching equality with a new natural gas power plant. The cost of wind and solar is anticipated to decline for at least a decade or two. Perhaps in a decade, renewables will be competitive with any new form of energy in many parts of the U.S. Published on Mar 8, 2015

Susan Anderson and Jill Kolek: Portland, OR: Solarize Portland Campaig
Static Preview

At the Garrison Institute's 2011 Climate, Cities and Behavior Symposium, Susan Anderson and Jill Kolek, leaders of the City of Portland's Bureau of Planning and Sustainability, describe the Solarize Portland Campaign. They explain their tactic of bringing together all of the solar constituents in the city, including businesses, nonprofits and administrators of public solar incentives programs, to create a unified message and marketing strategy. They used peer pressure as a means of shifting behavior by making solar energy the "new normal," and developed a neighborhood-level community-driven volume purchasing program to bring solar energy to many households.

Sustainable Energy: Affordable Domestic Solar in Africa
Static Preview

Small solar home systems bring good quality light and phone-charging to off-grid households and save them money. Yet their upfront costs render them out of reach for the people who would benefit most from them. UK-based startup Azuri has developed a pay-as-you-go interface which allows households to pay for solar power as they use it with scratchcards, making them affordable to those who need them.The Indigo Box won Ashden Award that champions and promote practical, local energy solutions that cut carbon, protect the environment, reduce poverty and improve people’s lives.
