    September 09, 2013
    Capstone Turbine Corporation, the world's leading clean technology manufacturer of microturbine energy systems, announced today that it received another follow-on order for a large Australian coal seam gas company. The initial order in July 2008 was for the supply of 110 C30 packages, which was later increased to 154 C30s in 2009. The first follow-on contract was for 44 C30 microturbines in October 2012, and in early January 2013 they ordered 36 additional units. The latest order is for 14 units, bringing the total number of units sold to date to 248 C30 microturbines. These orders are part of a periodical supply contract for the life of the project, at least five years. Capstone's distributor Aquatec-Maxcon Pty Ltd secured the periodical supply contract in October 2012.

  • China : PV Guangzhou 2013 to Help Resolve PV Industry Crisis
    August 19, 2013, Asia
    As China's photovoltaic industry has frequently encountered anti-dumping and anti-subsidy in foreign countries, most people focus on the solution that the government adopts to deal with the crisis. Thanks to cost reduction and emerging market exploitation, PV industry is gradually seeing recovery and positive development. However, many corporations are still facing hard times at the moment.

    "The punitive duty of 11.8% is slightly lower than what we have expected, which gives us a break. Some large companies with financial strength can manage to survive the hard time”, a photovoltaic insider told reporters.

    The European Commission announced its decision to push forth with anti-dumping duties on Chinese PV imports into Europe despite of controversy. From June 6 to August 6, the provisional tariffs are set as 11.8%. In case of no satisfying negotiation results, then the punitive duties of 47.6% will come into force in August, passively influencing most of domestic PV companies.

    Undeniably, the biggest problem for China's PV industry lies in excess capacity and we've been suffering this issue for many years. To solve this problem, we have reached common ground, namely, vigorously expanding domestic and overseas markets. Though the European markets are still quite important to China's PV industry, many domestic companies have been trying to seek business transformation before the proposal of anti-dumping and anti-subsidy. On one hand, they actively exploit emerging markets, such as Japan, Southeast Asia, Africa, and so forth. On the other hand, building PV power plants and other measures are taken to expand domestic markets. Some companies attempt to tackle the crisis by building production bases in foreign countries. At present, Canada, Japan and other markets has presented positive growth. In particular, Japan witnesses an increasing demand for PV products due to its subsidy policies in this line.

    According to the Organizing Committee of PV Guangzhou, some exhibitors have continuously lowered export volume to European and American markets, and have attached more importance to Japan, India, South Africa, Russia and other emerging markets. PV Guangzhou attracts professional visitors from Asia, South America, Africa and other emerging markets, which injects new vitality to the industry. Thought facing international trade friction and business transformation, PV Guangzhou 2013 will facilitate your emerging market expansion.

    PV Guangzhou 2013 will be held from August 19 to 21 and invite governments as well as related associations from emerging economies to attend, including Asia, South America, Africa, etc. It will not only help cope with the current crisis, but also play a role in exploiting emerging markets at home and abroad.

  • USA : DOE to Provide USD 7 Million for Tribal Renewable Energy Projects
    May 03, 2013
    The US Department of Energy (DOE) has made USD 7 million available to support the deployment of renewable energy and other "clean energy" projects on Native American lands through two funding opportunities.

    "Community-Scale Clean Energy Projects in Indian Country" will make USD 4.5 million available for projects at least 50 kW in size, and “Tribal Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Deployment Assistance” will make USD 2.5 million available for projects at least 10 kW in size.

    "Tribal lands comprise nearly 2% of U.S. land, but contain about 5% of the country's renewable energy resources," notes the DOE.

    “With more than 9 million megawatts of potential installed renewable energy capacity on tribal lands, these communities are well positioned to capitalize on our domestic renewable energy resources — thereby enhancing U.S. energy security and protecting our air and water.”
