WindStream Technologies, Inc. (OTCQB: WSTI) announced today a contract was awarded through its Malaysian distributor, My WindStream Energy of Kuala Lumpur, to deliver the company's patented SolarMill® hybrid solar and wind system technology for a new eco-housing project in Sungai Ular, Cherating Pahang, Malaysia. Phase I of the contract calls for 50 SM2-4P SolarMill units to be delivered in the next 90 days. Subsequent phases of the project are being scheduled to complete the deployment throughout the 800 home housing complex.
Once completed, the eco-housing project in Sungai Ular, Cherating Pahang, Malaysia, will be the largest deployment of WindStream's hybrid solar and wind energy technology in the world. The completed installation's power generation potential equals greater than 1.6MW's of power annually. Power generated from the SM2-4P SolarMills will be used onsite and tied to the grid, reducing the demand for grid-supplied energy while lowering electricity cost for homeowners.

An innovative system fuelled by raw plant oils could power isolated homes and businesses operating outside the National Grid.
Developed by a consortium led by Newcastle University and funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), the small-scale combined cooling, heat and power system has been designed to provide dependable electricity without the need for a mains connection. The "trigeneration" system is ideally suited for small-holdings and businesses, and particularly applications in the developing world.

Capstone Turbine Corporation, the world's leading clean technology manufacturer of microturbine energy systems, announced today that it received its first order for a Capstone C600 to be utilized in a landfill project in Jyvaskyla, Finland.
"Utilizing the Capstone microturbine in landfill gas solutions demonstrates how we provide clean, reliable, and cost-effective power generation solutions to the renewable energy market," stated Jim Crouse, Capstone's Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing. "With this demonstrated success, an increasing number of landfills across the world are turning to Capstone microturbines as their preferred clean and green energy solution."

The Asia-Pacific (APAC) region's distributed Combined Heat and Power (CHP) installed capacity will grow from around 37.7 Gigawatts (GW) in 2013 to approximately 64 GW by 2019, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 9%, says an analyst with research and consulting firm GlobalData.
Ankit Mathur, GlobalData's Project Manager for Alternative Energy, states that the region will spend almost $56 billion on bolstering its distributed CHP installed capacity between 2014 and 2019. This is the second largest investment globally behind Europe, which will boast distributed CHP capital expenditure of around $144 billion between 2014 and the end of the forecast period.
The analyst believes that China's significant contribution has been the major driving force behind the expansion of APAC's distributed CHP installed capacity reaching 37.7 GW by 2013. The country will continue to account for more than 50% of the region's market share, with a forecast net capacity addition of over 14.5 GW between 2014 and 2019.

EnglandNorth West Bicester, the UK’s first zero carbon town is to feature the country’s largest domestic solar panel array as part of its composition.
The solar aspect entails 17,500m2 of panels mounted across the rooftops of all homes to generate electricity. This includes freestanding photovoltaic (PV) panels, overlaid PV panels and inset PV tiles.
The initial phase will provide 393 homes, which meet the Code for Sustainable Homes Level 5. Each home will have a true zero carbon rating, with heat and hot water being generated on-site by a highly-efficient, gas-fired combined heat and power plant.

The Lithuanian government, through state-controlled energy group Lietuvos Energija, is seeking to attract investment in the development of new cogeneration power plant projects in Vilnius and Kaunas, as it looks to deliver affordable heat to residents of both cities.
The plan is to install modern power plants using waste and biofuel, which by generating heat and electricity will ensure 30 per cent lower heat prices for residents, and will generate about 60 per cent of the cities' heat requirement and will ensure more than one tenth of the required electricity annually (1.1 TWh) for Lithuania.

Following in the footsteps of its tri-state neighbors, New Jersey is establishing an infrastructure bank that is focused on energy resiliency.
The $200 million for New Jersey’s Energy Resilience Bank will come from the state's Community Development Block Grant-Disaster Recovery allocation. Unlike the models employed in Connecticut and New York, it remains unclear at what point private capital will be brought into New Jersey's ERB, or at what scale.
The bank will support distributed energy resources at critical facilities, with an early focus on water and wastewater treatment plants. The action plan states that the benefits of technologies such as fuel cells, combined heat and power and resilient solar "are indisputable." Hospitals, emergency response centers, town centers, transit networks and regional high schools that could be used as shelters could also be targets for the bank. Potential projects could include microgrids, distributed generation, smart grid technologies and energy storage.

On July 24, the U.K. Department of Energy and Climate Change announced that starting in October, renewable energy projects in the U.K. will complete for a budget of more than £200 million ($339.7 million) as part of the government's reforms to the electricity market. The funding is the first allocation round for the new Contracts for Difference (CfD), a subsidy program that aims to provide long-term certainty and reduce risk for investors. The DECC's announcement came one day after the European Commission announced its determination that the CfD program is in line with EU state aid rules.
In a statement, Energy and Climate Change Secretary Ed Davey noted that renewable energy projects will have to bid competitively for contracts. The DECC has also indicated that it is signaling that at least an additional £50 million is expected to be available for an auction round in 2015, with a total of approximately £1 billion potentially available later for further projects up to 2020-'21.
