Through a presidential initiative called We Can't Wait, President Obama has expedited seven solar and wind energy projects in Arizona, California, Nevada and Wyoming. Together, these infrastructure projects will produce nearly 5,000 MW of clean energy, according to the White House.The five solar projects include the following installations:- Quartzsite Solar Energy, a 100 MW concentrating solar power (CSP) plant under development in Arizona by Solar Reserve. Its target time frame for federal permit and review decisions is this December.- Desert Harvest Solar Energy, a 150 MW PV plant under development by enXco in California.
Its target time frame for permit and review decisions is this December.- McCoy Solar Energy, a 750 MW PV plant under development by NextEra in California. Its target time frame for permit and review decisions is this December.- Moapa Solar Energy Center, a multiple-technology solar plant under development by RES Americas and the Moapa Band of Paiute Indians in Nevada. The 200 MW project would employ 100 MW of PV technology and 100 MW of CSP technology. Its target time frame for permit and review decisions is December 2013.- Silver State South, a 350 MW PV plant under development in Nevada by First Solar. Its target time frame for permit and review decisions is March 2013.
EMCORE Corp., a provider of compound semiconductor-based components and subsystems for the solar power and fiber-optic markets, says it has consolidated its terrestrial concentrated photovoltaic (CPV) systems engineering and development efforts into its joint venture, Suncore Photovoltaics.The agreement, which is still subject to closing conditions, is intended to allow EMCORE to focus its efforts on multi-junction solar cell technology forspace and terrestrial power applications.
In late 2010, EMCORE formed the Suncore Photovoltaics joint venture with San'an Optoelectronics Co. Ltd. to engage in manufacturing and business development in China. EMCORE and Suncore will now consolidate intellectual property and development efforts for both ground-mount and rooftop terrestrial CPV products, including key engineering, and sales and marketing personnel, into a wholly owned subsidiary of Suncore in the U.S.EMCORE notes that it will continue to own all of its intellectual property related to solar cell technology and maintain investment activities to advance CPV cell performance.
