Dear Blue Blue,

Although we are technology neutral at the Smart Villages Initiative, it was impossible this week to avoid a slightly biased issue since I have had a veritable solar storm of stories on all aspects - from policy to milestones to fundamental science. Thus we have California setting major new targets, the World Bank launching a Solar Atlas, the Chinese building the world’s largest solar park, people across Africa watching solar TVs, and U.S. scientists looking at splitting solar water to name just a few. One thing I have avoided, though, is including too much on President Trump’s first actions, which I will leave until we see his concrete actions on renewable energy and development.

D.light Raises Off-Grid Issues At Davos
The coming ‘Fourth Industrial Revolution’ is set to drive the convergence of technologies that blur the lines between the physical, digital and biological spectrums, but if access to reliable energy, banking and the internet are neglected, 30 percent of the world’s population are in danger of being left behind. To ensure that these basic economic tools don’t go overlooked amongst responsive and responsible leaders at this year’s World Economic Forum Annual Meeting, d.light co-founder and CEO Ned Tozun plans to discuss progress of decentralized energy systems for those living at the bottom of the pyramid with leaders working to improve the state of the world. Throughout Africa, Asia and Latin America, this revolution is taking hold and providing economic benefit to local populations. [...]

World Bank Launches Global Solar Atlas
The World Bank, in partnership with the International Solar Alliance (ISA), launched the Global Solar Atlas, a free, web-based tool to help investors and policymakers identify potential sites for solar power generation virtually anywhere in the world, at the click of a button. The tool displays annual average solar power potential, and has the capacity to zoom into areas in great detail (with a spatial resolution of 1 km, or 0.6 of a mile). The tool also provides access to high resolution global and regional maps and geographic information system (GIS) data, enabling users to print poster maps and utilize the data in other applications.

Looking back at 2016, it’s easier to come up with a list of bad things that happened than good: Brexit, Trump and the rise of post-truth politics; the Syrian disaster, and the subsequent European bungling of the influx of refugees; and China and Russia flexing their military muscles on the borders of Europe and in the South China Sea.
