At around this same date back in 2013, IKEA changed up its game.

It must’ve worked out though, as IKEA CEO Peter Agnefjäll announced today that the company plans to expand its residential solar offering to eight more countries over the next 18 months.

New solar, efficiency programs will curb millions of tons of emissions and save billions of dollars

by Meteor Blades

The Obama administration took several small steps in the right direction on energy policy Thursday when it announced the Department of Energy’s proposed new standard for commercial air-conditioning units, the Department of Agriculture’s plan to add 540 new renewable energy and efficiency projects in rural areas and a plan to train 50,000 solar installers. The DOE estimates that the air-conditioning rule alone would reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 60 million metric tons by 2030, and that the whole energy package could cut them by 300 million metric tons.

Plus save consumers $10 billion.

Who Leads the Residential PV Monitoring Market?

Mike Munsell, September 11, 2014

Solar PV monitoring is the suite of hardware, software and services that allows stakeholders to track and assess the production and performance of solar PV systems. According to GTM Research’s most recent report on the topic, more than 40 gigawatts of monitored PV were added globally in 2013. GTM Research breaks down the market into four segments: residential (up to 20 kilowatts), commercial (20 kilowatts to 1 megawatt), industrial (1 to 5 megawatts), and utility (5 megawatts and up).

The residential monitoring market added 2,115 megawatts in 2013, and that number is expected to more than double in 2016, with more than 4,300 megawatts forecasted in that year. Outpacing all other segments, it will account for 7.5 percent of all monitored megawatts deployed in 2016.
