The future for wind and solar energy is bright. But in order to realize even a fraction of their enormous potential, both technologies must address two major constraints, one physical and one financial.
Will electric utilities go the way of black rotary-phones and daily print newspapers, squeezed out by technology innovation, competition, stranded capital costs, and consumers wanting to make their own electric power? If you said yes, you are not alone.
A new report, just out from the U.S. Department of Energy, explores the vulnerability of U.S. energy systems to extreme weather events associated with climate change.

For years, people have put solar panels on their roofs — and states have helped fund them — to clean up the environment. Now, after Hurricane Sandy and the real threat of more severe storms, there’s another reason for solar: keeping the lights on.
When we’re talking about climate stabilization over the long term, we’re talking about a balancing act: how to scale up zero and low-carbon emission energy sources and how to scale down the use of high-carbon emission sources used today.
A new report demonstrates how offshore wind can become cost competitive with electricity generated from natural gas by 2024, even without federal subsidies.
We at Clean Energy Group are proposing a new clean energy finance recommendation today, to provide states with additional capital so that they can leverage more private investment in clean energy projects and companies.
Clean energy advocates have praised the decision in the fiscal cliff legislation to extend important federal energy tax provisions, such as the production tax credit for wind.
