Please scroll down for lots of useful information. There are links to industry and environmental journals, relevant dates in the environmental and renewable energy calendar, current debates, a solar PV Feed-in Tariff calculator, green products websites, campaign groups and more. Some of this might be a bit outdated given time considerations and the fact that I don't get paid for doing this, but I do try and keep it as fresh and new as I can so it's still worth checking out.

http://www.renewableenergymagazine.com/interviews/advancing-offshore-wind-an-interview-with-dr-20170221



LOC Group recently announced a partnership with marine energy research and consultancy association WavEC Offshore Renewables in which LOC is to provide expertise on the complete lifecycle of offshore wind development, from project blueprint to operation. The company wants to develop a fully focused renewables consultancy, having worked on over two thirds of all European offshore wind farms and currently involved with 60 offshore wind projects with a variety of clients.

The partnership with WavEC is aimed at pooling LOC’s expertise in offshore technology, resource measurement and O&M, amongst other areas, with WavEC’s research and analysis capabilities, with an emphasis on floating offshore wind. This in turn will help to benefit the wind industry as a whole.

REM talked to RV Ahilan, Group Director of Renewables Advisory and Energy Technology at LOC, to find out more.

Microfinancing offgrid solar: An Interview with Snehar Shah of Azuri Technologies

1.2 billion people around the world currently lack access to electricity, so TRINE seeks to solve this problem by closing the gap between private capital in developed countries and local solar partners in emerging markets. The organisations founding goal is to end energy poverty but finding a long-term solution is key. The for-profit nature of TRINE as a business and its projects deployed as investments means that its projects are economically viable as well as having a social and environmental impact in the long run. TRINE has embarked on crowdfunded campaign to bring clean energy to 5,880 people in Harambee, Kenya. Its partner, Raj Ushanga House (RUH), will use the loan to purchase and distribute 1,200 Azuri Solar Home Systems.
