Dubai inaugurates first phase of mega solar energy project (video)

AFP - Dubai inaugurated the first phase of a solar energy park on Tuesday as the Gulf emirate seeks to diversify its energy sources, official Emirati news agency WAM reported.

The park, named the "Mohammed bin Rashid al-Maktoum Park" after the emirate's ruler, will produce 1,000 megawatts of electricity when completed, and will cost 12 billion dirhams ($3.3 billion), WAM said.
The first plant of the solar energy megaproject is 30 kilometres (18 miles) from the city of Dubai and can produce 10 megawatts of energy on its own.

Said Mohammed al-Tayer, deputy head of the Dubai Electricity and Water Authority and vice chief of its Supreme Energy Council, said the project was "one of a kind in the region," adding that it would be a major boost to the Gulf state's mega-projects.

Spain’s solar industry to collapse as govt introduces draconian profit caps

One of the main producers of renewable energy in Europe, Spain’s solar industry, is edging toward bankruptcy. Producers say they’ll be unable to repay credits after the government’s decision to cut subsidies. Banks will suffer and jobs will be lost.
Energy Minister José Manuel Soria has introduced a new compensation plan for calculating levels of "reasonable profitability" for renewable-energy production, distribution and transportation. It will reduce payments to companies serving the nation's electrical system by up to 2.7 billion euro annually. It’s hoped the move could help cope with the electricity system deficit that has been growing since 2005 and now exceeds 25 billion euro.

To sap the annual deficit, which has been estimated by the government at 4.5 billion euro this year, Spain is set to raise consumers' electric bills by about 3.2 percent starting from August, contributing about 400 million euro in extra revenue for the system this year and 900 million euro next year, the Wall Street Journal reports.

L'Allemagne arrêtera ses subventions à l'énergie solaire d'ici à 2018

L'Allemagne devrait arrêter de subventionner l'énergie solaire d'ici à 2018 au plus tard, a affirmé lundi 8 juillet le ministre de l'environnement, Peter Altmaier, qui avait commencé dès l'an dernier à baisser la voilure du soutien très généreux accordé au photovoltaïque.

Peter Altmaier, conservateur, avait fixé l'an dernier un plafond de capacité solaire installée au-delà duquel les pouvoirs publics arrêteraient de subventionner cette énergie. Il a déclaré que ce seuil de 52 gigawatts serait vraisemblablement atteint en 2017, au plus tard en 2018.

Bild: Οι Ελληνες «διώχνουν» 300 εκατ. ευρώ μεγαλοεπένδυσης για τη δημιουργία ηλιακών εγκαταστάσεων (Φ/Β) στο νησί Πεταλάς (δυτική Ελλάδα)

«Η Ελλάδα, παρά την μικρή πρόοδο που έχει σημειώσει, δεν έχει απομακρυνθεί από την κρίση. Τώρα για παράδειγμα είναι γνωστό, ότι μία μεγάλη ιδιωτική επένδυση 300 εκατ. ευρώ απλά αποτυγχάνει λόγω της ελληνικής γραφειοκρατίας», σημειώνει η εφημερίδα.
Ποια είναι η τρέλα: η γερμανική ηλιακή εταιρεία Phonotherm σχεδιάζει εδώ και αρκετούς μήνες μία ηλιακή μονάδα παραγωγής ενέργειας στο νησί Πεταλάς της δυτικής Ελλάδας. Η εταιρία θα μπορούσε να ξεκινήσει, αλλά οι Αρχες δεν συμμετέχουν! Οι λόγοι; «Δεν μπορούμε να δώσουμε κάποια έγκριση, διότι έχουν επιτευχθεί οι στόχοι της ενεργειακής πολιτικής της Ελλάδας για το 2020».
