Renewable Energy Attracts Investment and Funding in 3Q - The Minute
 
01:58
The dollars are continuing to flow into the renewable energy sector, in investments of all types and in government funding. Financial activity in renewables is strong and trending upward, despite questions of uncertain subsidies and rapidly changing costs. In the third quarter of this year, total corporate funding in the wind energy industry totaled $2.4 billion, according to consulting firm Mercom Capital Group. That funding includes venture capital, public market financing, and debt financing. In a VC deal, Goldman Sachs Group invested $140 million in ReNew Power Ventures. Large-scale project funding added up to $3 billion. Two M and A transactions were completed, for $81 million, and project acquisitions totaled $5.3 billion. And there were two IPOs in the third quarter, for $111 million. The list of the many companies, funds, and countries involved was equally impressive. Deals were done by, among others, the Asia Development Bank, Polish Energy Partners, the Chinese private-equity fund CEE Equity Partners, and the Greece-based ELTECH ANEMOS. Countries involved included the U.K., Norway, Denmark, Germany, Ghana, and Poland. On the home front, and in the solar power field, the U.S. Department of Energy is investing $53 million in 40 research and development projects to lower the cost of solar energy. The driver here is to support several areas of technology development to bring innovative ideas to market more quickly. It looks like investors are placing big bets on renewable energy as a boom industry that promises equally big payoffs. I’m John Howell for 3BL Media. © 2014 | 3BL Media | All Rights Reserved

Can Investing In Solar Beat The Stock Market?? Results Will Surprise You! FarmCraft101 solar pt4

Did I waste my money? I invested in a 9200W grid-tie solar system, professionally installed by a solar company. This was a turn key installation, I didn't do any of the work, so it wasn't exactly cheap. After the tax credit, it cost me $17,022.

A tax credit is a reduction in the amount of taxes that you owe. They are used by the government to incentivize certain activities, but there is no money passing from the government to the receiver of the tax credit. If you don't pay enough in taxes to at least equal the amount of the credit, then you don't get the credit! Said another way, in order to receive a tax credit, you first have to pay that much in taxes. I paid far more in taxes than I received from this tax credit, which came to about $7000. How does my solar investment compare to investing in the stock market? Watch the video. The results will surprise you.

BYD looks healthier. The technology is close to being profitable. This will not only boost the industry but also renewables. Knowing what is going on is key to profitable investing. At the current moment solar is doing really good with the latest positive news being the state of California making it mandatory to install solar roofs on now houses by 2020. However, solar and wind energy, the drivers of renewable energy are both very volatile and not producing most of the energy when it is needed. You never know whether it will be windy and solar energy is mostly produced during midday while the highest consumption is in the evening. This leads us to the key component for renewables which is energy storage. Battery costs have been constantly declining over the past years and are becoming more and more attractive for investors and renewable project. News from Electrek shows that Audi promises batteries at a cost as low as $114 per kWh which would really be a game changer for electrical vehicles and energy storage. The lower costs might increase demand for storage as it becomes profitable. The issue with renewable energy One issue with renewable energy is that you can’t store it which means that you might even have to sell it at a negative price. The problem with the abundance of renewable energy in peak production times can only be solved with storage which would give a boost both to the battery and solar industry. So, the demand is here, the technology is approaching profitability or will soon reach such a target and the question remains how to invest? How to invest in the trend? There are three main trends to follow: utilities, commercial buildings, and homeowners. The steps to take for investing are the following: Look at the metal used in the batteries (lithium, cobalt, nickel etc.) Look at the metal used in creating the infrastructure (copper) Look at what produces the energy (wind turbines and solar panels) Look at the producers of all the other components Look at the return on investment (the most notorious might not be the best) Look at the political support and interest rates

Worlds Largest Solar Power Plant in this Country
 
03:07
Worlds Largest Solar Power Plant in this Country . Solar Power Plant in this Country in Morocco . World’s Largest Concentrated Solar Plant Opened in Morocco . Today, Morocco launches the first phase of the largest concentrated solar power (CSP) plant in the world. When fully operational, the plant will produce enough energy for more than one million Moroccan households. Inaugurated officially today by His Majesty Mohammed VI of Morocco, the solar plant underlines the country’s determination to reduce dependence on fossil fuels, use more renewable energy, and move towards low carbon development. The three-plant Noor-Ouarzazate CSP complex called NOORo expects to achieve over 500 megawatts (MW) installed capacity, ultimately supplying power to 1.1 million Moroccans by 2018. It is estimated that the plant will reduce the country’s energy dependence by about 2 and half million tons of oil, while also lowering carbon emissions by 760,000 tons per year. Concentrated solar power is such a promising technology that the International Energy Agency estimates that up to 11 percent of the world’s electricity generation in 2050 could come from CSP. This is especially true in the Middle East and North Africa, a region with abundant solar resources and high hopes of eventually helping to meet the E.U.’s demand for energy. “With this bold step toward a clean energy future, Morocco is pioneering a greener development and developing a cutting edge solar technology,” said Marie Francoise Marie-Nelly, World Bank Country Director for the Maghreb, “the returns on this investment will be significant for the country and its people, by enhancing energy security, creating a cleaner environment, and encouraging new industries and job creation.” Despite the potential of CSP, relatively high technology costs, when compared to fossil fuel alternatives, deter utilities from investing. Concessional and public financing were key to lift this project off the ground. The Moroccan Agency for Solar Energy, the government agency focused on the country’s solar ambitions, secured over $3 billion needed for the Noor-Ouarzazate complex from the African Development Bank (AfDB), the Climate Investment Funds (CIF), European financing institutions and the World Bank. “This launch shows that the low-cost, long-term financing provided by the CIF can serve as the spark that attracts the public and private investments needed to build massive CSP production facilities at an attractive cost for countries interested in developing solar energy,” said Mafalda Duarte, Head of the Climate Investment Funds. Trailblazing projects on the African continent, like the Noor solar plant, are proving the performance of CSP. As well as the environmental benefits, the plant results in new, local jobs, and can lead to a high-performing sustainable energy economic sector for Morocco. Yacine Fal, AfDB resident representative in Morocco, said: “Noor solar complex is part of the innovative operations of AfDB in the energy sector in terms of financing and technology. It stands to serve as an example for Africa and the world about how to create effective pathways to greener and more inclusive economies through renewable energy”. Thanks for watching.

We will also take a deeper dive into our concept for the solution to overcoming these barriers. The Clean Energy Investment Trust (CEIT) mechanism unbundles the traditional financing model to create distinct cashflows that appeal to different investors. The largest of these investments, the CEIT is a bond-like product, which matches the characteristics of contracted renewable energy projects with the needs of pension fund and insurance company investors with predictable long-term liabilities. Surplus and tail-end cashflows also offer opportunities for other investor classes.

GEPF invests to boost job-creation and economic growth
 
03:36
Post about: gEPF invests to boost job-creation and economic growth. The Government Employees Pension Fund (GEPF)has announced the allocation of R13-billion for investment in various sectors of the economy, including the tourism sector, in order to boost job-creation and contribute to renewable energy, food security and broad-based black economic empowerment, writes Katie Horne. This forms part of GEPF’s long-term developmental investment strategy whereby 5 per cent (approximately R60-billion) of its total assets is allocated for investment in commercially viable South African-based projects that will have positive, long-term impacts on development, in addition to providing the financial return expected by the Board. John Oliphant, GEPF Principal Officer said the sustainability of the GEPF investment portfolio is intrinsically linked to the growth of the SA economy. With more than R1trillion assets under management, representing a third of the SA GDP, we think it is prudent to invest in projects that contribute to economic growth and job creation. This, we believe, is in the best interest of our investment portfolio in the long term. GEPF is the largest pension fund in Africa with more than 1.2-million members, 360 000 pensioners and more than R1-trillion worth of assets under management. GEPF and PIC have signed private placement memoranda (PPM) that will ensure guided investment processes in the different investment funds. To date commitments to the following three Funds have been approved: Environmental Sustainability Fund -R5-billion; Priority Sectors Investment Fund -R3-billion; and South African Private Equity Fund -R5-billion. The Isibaya division within the PIC will manage the funds. The Environmental Sustainability Fund will invest in energy renewables and efficiency, energy storage, clean energy and recycling projects. The Fund is expected to generate 500MW of new, renewable energy and 300-million litres of biofuel per annum. It is estimated that the Fund will create approximately 3 000 jobs during and after the construction of renewable energy plants and recycling centres. Tourism The Priority Sectors Investment Fund will focus on projects that will have substantial and positive impact on areas such as job creation and food security. These include manufacturing, agriculture, tourism, mining beneficiation and agro-processing. This Fund aims to create more than 3,000 jobs, of which 25 per cent will be in rural areas. The SA Private Equity Fund will concentrate on medium-to-large capital buyouts as well as mergers and acquisitions. The Fund will seek to achieve broad-based black economic empowerment (BBBEE) to levels 1 and 3 over three to eight years measured over the 10-year span of the portfolio. It is expected that commitments will be made to two additional Funds, the Economic Infrastructure and Africa Private Equity during the year. Note: The Isibaya division focuses on economic infrastructure, environmental sustainability projects; social infrastructure; and new enterprise, job creation and BBBEE. Isibaya provides funding to entities and projects that require a minimum of R10-million up to a maximum of R2-billion.

*Reps probe $200m clean technology fund in North-East The House of Representatives on Wednesday mandated ‎its Committee on Environment and Habitat to investigate the $200 Million Clean Technology Fund meant for Solar Energy Development in the North-East Zone. The House committee was also directed to interface with the Ministers of Environment and Finance on the status of the project, including evidence of disbursement of the funds and report back within three weeks for further legislative action. The House resolution followed a motion sponsored by Hon. Shehu Aliyu Musa on the need to investigate the fund disbursement. While moving the motion, Hon Musa said that, “Clean Technology Fund (CTF) is one of the two multi-donor Trust Funds within the Climate Investment Funds (CIFs) which is meant to promote scaled-up financing for demonstration, deployment and transfer of low-carbon technologies with significant potentials for long-term greenhouse gas emissions savings”. ‎He however expressed concern that five years after the approval and subsequent release of the funds to the Federal Government, the project has not commenced. To this end, he noted that “funding initiative in Nigeria was intended to help overcome the financing and market barriers for low carbon investments and support the deployment and application of clean energy and energy efficiency solutions in various industries, homes and service centres”. According to him, “sometime in May 2012, the CTF Trust Fund Committee nominated Nigeria among Phase II beneficiary countries and allocated the sum of $250 million USD to finance its investment plan for renewable and clean energy with low carbon growth “Out of the $250 million, $200 million was approved in the investment plan to finance the development of a 100 MW grid- connected solar power plant (renewable energy sector) in Bauchi and two other states in the North East based on feasibility and Federal Government support for initiatives in the development of the North East”,the lawmaker stated” The motion scaled through when it was put to vote by the Speaker, Hon. Yakubu Dogara who presided over the session.

Has Australia's investment in the Green Climate Fund been successful?
 
01:06:44
The Green Climate Fund is a critical part of the international community’s efforts to tackle climate change as the largest international climate fund helping developing counties respond to climate change. Established in 2010, it has US$10.3bn and approved 53 climate change projects in 73 countries worth US$2.64 billion in GCF resources. Priorities for this year include speeding up implementation and enhancing accessibility. Australia has committed $200m to the GCF which represents its single largest international climate change investment and played an important role in the development of the GCF. The GCF will have its 19th Board meeting from 27 February – 1 March 2018. An important priority at this meeting is the adoption of its environmental and social safeguards that aim to ensure that the GCF does not support activities that harm the environment or vulnerable people, such as women or indigenous people and perhaps more importantly that no one is left behind. The safeguards provide an important international precedent as they aim to be world’s best practice and will be the most recent international safeguard adopted. The safeguards also highlight some of the challenges that face the Fund. Sam Johnston has been engaged by the Secretariat of the GCF to assist with the development of these safeguards and will participate in the Board meeting. His talk will discuss the development of the GCF, highlight some of its key challenges, analyse the GCF safeguards, next steps and the prospects of them achieving their aims.
