Dear Blue Blue,

We've seen a flurry of reports this week, which, if you have the energy, will give you interesting insights on where the sector is heading: these are not only straight solar, wind, or hydro predictions either. Rather, we are getting sub-sectors such as floating wind and mini-hydro along with micro-grids and storage forecasts. However, we are still lacking more sophisticated predictions of impacts and dividends, a task that our recent conversations with SE4ALL verified is very much on the agenda for 2017. An equally welcome development is a growing number of critical reports such as the ones featured this week on problems with India’s rural electrification and on American scientists' concerns about the potentially adverse effects of home solar energy storage.

Accelerating Off-Grid Renewable Energy Report From IRENA
The business case for off-grid renewables as a means to expand rural electricity access keeps growing stronger, thanks to steady cost reductions and technological innovation. Yet further accelerating the growth of either mini-grid or stand-alone solutions will depend also on stable policies and regulations, along with dedicated funds and de-risking instruments for renewables.

Scale Of Chinese Solar Fishery Inspires U.S. Commentator
Last week, a 200MW solar fishery came online in Cixi City in east China’s Zhejiang Province. The photos below show the immensity of the project. Dual use solar power comes in many forms: parking lot solar is always getting attention, walkable solar glass – like the project built by Apple (though I don’t think the Apple campus solar counts), and solar even roadways are now a thing.

Texas Researchers Suggest Storing Home Solar Energy Increases Consumption And Emissions
Homes with solar panels do not require on-site storage to reap the biggest economic and environmental benefits of solar energy, according to research. In fact, storing solar energy for nighttime use actually increases both energy consumption and emissions compared with sending excess solar energy directly to the utility grid. [...]

Solar-Storage Financing Solutions Next Priority, Predicts Outgoing Industry Association Head
The ITC extension helped the industry refocus on its long-term future, rather than a short-term goal of installing as much as possible before the end of 2016. The extension gives developers much more runway to plan through 2022. The companies SEFA has worked with feel much more relaxed about having sufficient capital and the financing they need to meet their goals. [...]

Emerging Solar Markets For 2017 Previewed
Solar PV is no longer the domain of just a few developed countries after it saw significant progress in almost every continent on the planet in 2016. Only Europe, the original bastion of solar, has struggled to reignite its matured PV markets, but even France and Spain could be markets to watch out for next year, especially with Spain’s 3GW of solar and wind auctions due.
