REA counters that such a move would negatively impact businesses and consumers in the short-term as well as undermine confidence in future energy conservation and efficiency initiatives. The association believes long-term strategies around heat decarbonisation are also 'imperative', otherwise a policy gap will quickly emerge with the non-domestic RHI coming to an end and put the government's net-zero ambitions in 'serious jeopardy', according to the REA release.
The REA promotes renewable energy and clean technology industries -- biomass, biogas, waste-to-energy, energy storage, wind, solar, renewable transportation fuels and others -- to grow a sustainable industry and decarbonise society as part of a circular economy.

Electriq's flagship product line is the PowerPod, the industry-leading smart home battery backup system designed to save on electricity costs and protect against blackouts. The system includes a battery, hybrid battery/solar inverter, an energy meter, as well as a smart home energy software to manage electricity use and optimize efficiency. The PowerPod is modular and expandable up to three systems with three battery packs per system, giving installers and homeowners system design flexibility, with up to 16.5 kW of power and 99 kWh of battery storage.
The PowerPod 2, launched in late 2020, is the next-generation version of Electriq Power's industry-leading PowerPod family. This latest system is equipped with non-toxic, non-hazardous Lithium-Iron-Phosphate (LiFePO4), or LFP, batteries, which are rapidly becoming the industry standard, allowing for longer battery cycle life, increased reliability, and enhanced safety. The new high-performance, cobalt-free model builds upon key features of the original PowerPod system and PowerPod LFP technology to create the optimal energy storage solution. Notable product enhancements of the PowerPod 2 include:
The PowerPod 2 became the first fully integrated OpenADR 2.0b-certified residential battery storage system on the market, enabling Electriq Power to seamlessly partner with energy aggregators and participate in today’s dynamic energy marketplace. Recent strategic partnerships have given Electriq Power a pathway forward into deployment and control of energy storage systems while maximizing value for microgrids. Additionally, as the company continues to build out its vision of increasing value-added services for Virtual Power Plants, Electriq Power has accelerated deployments of battery systems and established a foundation from which to provide real-time grid services to support utility infrastructure and grid operators across the country.

Green hydrogen is produced by using renewable energy -- such as combining wave energy with solar -- to power electrolysis that splits water into its constituent parts. It is regarded as a leading approach in the journey to decarbonise emission-intensive industries and transport sectors. A $2/kg price is widely believed to represent a potential tipping point that will make green hydrogen and its derivative fuels the energy source of choice across multiple sectors, which includes steel manufacturing, fertilizer production, power generation, and shipping where vast near-term demand exists across Europe and internationally.
Green ammonia, a derivative of green hydrogen, is also being assessed as a way to displace fossil fuels in thermal power generation, greatly decreasing the emissions intensity of existing energy infrastructure.
The growth in green hydrogen production using wave energy could potentially be a cost-effective solution in reaching the world's latest hydrogen goals, according to the AW-Energy release.

Borrego implemented most of the organizational changes in 2020. The three business units -- development, engineering, procurement and construction (EPC), and operations and maintenance (O&M) -- have already begun operating independently and competing for business in the marketplace, drawing on each other's strengths when needed. The development and EPC businesses also set up utility-scale divisions last year.
As part of this strategic shift, each of the company's businesses has a goal of operating at gigawatt scale by 2024. In order to accommodate the industry trend to larger-scale projects, Borrego also transformed its strategic sales approach in 2020 by shifting its emphasis from single-transaction, smaller, behind-the-meter projects to supporting long-term partners.

For the next 12 months, customers on Oahu, Maui and Hawaii islands installing new systems on circuits where the new program is available will not need the standard approvals before activating their systems.
An approval process that typically takes several weeks or months for each step to be completed can now be handled after the system is built and turned on, substantially reducing the wait for many new solar customers. If successful, Quick Connect may be extended beyond one year.
The program aims to speed connections for customers and increase rooftop solar on those circuits with the most existing capacity while reducing administrative work for contractors and Hawaiian Electric.
Hawaii leads the nation in per capita use of rooftop solar, with over 20 pct of customers, including 36 pct of single-family homes on Oahu, with solar systems connected to island grids, according to the release.
Quick Connect program details and specifications for eligibility are
