The most recent report from the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change highlights the narrow twelve-year window we have to mitigate the worst effects of climate change. Because of its potency as a greenhouse gas, regulating methane emissions is one of the most promising ways to make dramatic short-term changes to the atmosphere that could be the difference between manageable climate impacts and disastrous ones.

To reach its figures, the independent report analyzed Ireland's electricity market from 2000 to 2020 and then simulated how it would have behaved without any wind energy on the system.
The report found prices for consumers are lower than they would have been without any investment in wind power. The savings outweigh the amount of funding provided to support wind energy through the public service obligation (PSO) levy of €1.9 billion over the period.
The report also notes capacity from wind has increased over that period from almost zero to 4.1 gigawatts.
The cumulative cost of wind energy works out at €63 million, or 66 cent per person, per year, the report found.

The initiative aims to assist St. John residents and businesses in the purchase solar energy systems by combining solar equipment orders and buying and shipping in bulk. Solarize also provides website, communication, and crowdsourcing expertise while solar systems equipment ordering and installations are completed at the local level. The program also seeks to take advantage of applicable tax credits for solar installations.
As part of that effort, the U.S. Virgin Islands Water and Power Authority (WAPA) is considering a program that would allow home and business owners to lease their roofs to generate solar power. When they enroll in Solarize St. John, applicants will also be asked to indicate if they would consider allowing WAPA to install solar panels and batteries and maintain them at no cost to the homeowner. WAPA would own the power generated, and the home or business owner would continue to pay their monthly bill.

The 20 funded projects are expected to generate $4 billion in direct investment in the clean energy sector, significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and generate sufficient clean energy for nearly 550,000 homes. Combined with the renewable energy projects previously announced under democratic Governor Cuomo's Clean Energy Standard, New York has now awarded 46 projects worth more than $2.9 billion.
The awards also propel New York toward the Governor's ramped up mandate for 70 pct of the state's electricity to come from renewable sources by 2030 -- up from 50 pct -- and helps guide the state toward achieving carbon neutrality across all sectors of its economy as quickly as possible including a 100 pct carbon-free electricity sector by 2040.
The 20 large-scale renewable energy projects include: Hannacroix Solar Facility - Greene County; Stillwater Solar - Saratoga County: Clay Solar - Onondaga County; Dog Corners Solar - Cayuga County; Excelsior Energy Center - Genesee County; Heritage Wind - Orleans County; Horseshoe Solar - Livingston County; Manchester Solar - Ontario County; Morris Ridge Solar - Livingston County; North Light Energy Center - Seneca County; Silver Lake Solar - Wyoming County; Hills Solar - Herkimer County; Mohawk Solar - Montgomery County; Skyline Solar - Oneida County; Watkins Road Solar I - Herkimer County; Roaring Brook Wind - Lewis County; Canisteo Wind - Steuben County; High Bridge Wind - Chenango County; Bakerstand Solar I - Cattaraugus County: and the Watkins Glen Solar Energy Center - Schuyler County.
All projects are expected to be operational by 2022, adding over 1,654 megawatts of renewable capacity in New York and generating over 3,800,000 megawatt hours of energy annually.The projects are expected to generate enough clean, renewable energy to reduce carbon emissions by more than 2 million metric tons, the equivalent to taking nearly 437,000 cars off the road.

Those most obviously affected by such a shift are rooftop solar owners, but the UK boasts approximately 560,000 households and businesses generating small-scale electricity under the FiT scheme using a range of technologies including biomass anaerobic digestion, ,wind power and hydro-electricity.

In 2018 the government suspended all new subsidized solar capacity approvals after a record 53-gigawatt capacity increase in 2017 left it with a backlog of at least 120 billion yuan ($18 billion) in subsidy payments. The new subsidy-free projects will generate renewable power for sale at the same prices as non-subsidised coal-fired power plants, and will not have to comply with capacity quota restrictions.
Under the new policy, grid companies will be encouraged to guarantee electricity purchases from pilot projects, lower transmission fees and support cross-regional deliveries of subsidy-free power. The government has already approved the construction of several subsidy-free wind farms, and solar generators have also achieved price parity in some regions.
According to the NDRC, solar construction costs in China plunged 45 pct from 2012 to 2017, while wind project costs fell 20 pct over the same time frame.
