- The Economist makes the case that “[r]enewables are no longer a fad but a fact of life, supercharged by advances in power storage.”
- According to Greentech Media: “Falling oil prices will have an extremely limited impact on wholesale or retail electricity prices, which are the core economic drivers for the future of solar. And yet, the situation has been terrible for publicly traded solar companies. Over the last six months, SunEdison’s stock is down almost 20 percent, SolarCity is down 30 percent, and SunPower is down almost 40 percent. This is in spite of the fact that the fundamentals of the industry continue to improve, as most analysts have made clear.”
- The New York Times reports on “Green-Energy Inspiration Off the Coast of Denmark.”

- Greentech Media explains “How the US Solar-Storage Market Reaches $1B in 3 Years.”
