Here are five recommended reads for today (7/28/14).
- Bloomberg reports, “JA Solar Holdings Co...expects solar-panel prices in China to recover as developers scale up projects and government measures encourage developments.”
- The Guardian has an op-ed which argues: “Energy efficiency – insulation of homes, for one – is cheaper than any energy-producing or generating option (which is why the Treasury cuts in the UK’s Eco energy efficiency budget are such folly). For once, Europe’s greens can make common cause with Europe’s securocrats: cutting gas demand makes sense both to protect the planet and to punish Putin.”
- According to DeSmogBlog, “Congress has less than a week left to finish delivering promises for their donors before they head out for a month-long August recess undoubtedly filled with campaigning, and members aren’t wasting any time in their attempts to suck up to the dirty energy industry.”
- The New York Times reports, “Even as regulators continue to wrestle with the protracted trade conflict with China over solar panels, the case has already started to reshape the industry, lifting manufacturers based outside China while also raising prices of panels for developers.”
- According to The Guardian, “Ministers will give the go-ahead on Monday for a big expansion of fracking across Britain that will allow drilling in national parks and other protected areas in ‘exceptional circumstances’.”
