Consideration of Impacts on Water Quality and Quantity in the WREZ Process (2003)

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on March 29, 2015

Throughout much of the Western U.S., water is a scarce resource. Growing cities and power plants often compete directly with the agricultural sector - and environmental needs - for limited water supplies. Developing new, renewable energy supplies will have varied impacts on water resources. It is important that, in the process, renewable energy development does not contribute to or exacerbate water supply and quality challenges.

Maine Solar Energy Rebate Program 2007 Annual Report (2007)

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on March 29, 2015

The Maine Public Utilities Commission (Commission) is pleased to present the second Maine Solar Energy Rebate Program Annual Report for the time period July 1, 2005 - June 30, 2007. The two primary goals of the Maine Solar Energy Rebate Program are to: Increase the use of solar photovoltaic, solar hot water, and solar air systems by Maine residents; and promote the development of trained and certified renewable energy installers throughout the State of Maine.

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on March 15, 2015

This report was released by the Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy section of the U.S. Department of Energy in 2004. It highlights a large-scale solar thermal system installed at the Phoenix Federal Correctional Institution (FCI) and breaks down the statistical output.

Arizona Solar Energy and Economics Outlook (2009)

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on March 14, 2015

This report was arranged by William P. Patton, Ph. D., Economic and Business Research Center, University of Arizona. The document discusses the need for the United States to make the switch from fossil fuels to solar energy as a more reliable and environmentally sound energy source.A study was conducted in Arizona in order to discover the potential for solar electric generation in Arizona and also to figure out the economic and environmental impacts on the increased use of solar power.

Alberta To House A Canadian Renewable Energy First (2010)

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on March 14, 2015

This release was prepared by the Government of Alberta and describes a new, large scale commercial solar thermal project in conjunction with Medicine Hat. The Medicine Hat Concentrating Solar Thermal Energy Demonstration Project will be the first in Canada to add a solar-powered steam generation system to an existing power plant.  This will allow the plant’s turbines to generate some of its electricity using solar thermal energy.

Concentrating Solar Thermal Power Economics (2009)

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on March 14, 2015

This paper was prepared by SuperSmart Grid (SSG) in 2007.The report offers a variety of credible sources on the economics of Concentrating Solar Thermal Power (CSTP).

It aims to give the most up to date and pertinent information relating to CSTP plants and it’s cost benefit in relation to PV and other intermittent energy sources. It shows that with a 30 percent investment tax credit the effective cost of CSTP is can be reduced by almost $30/MVh.
