More than one million PV systems installed under Australia's Renewable Energy Target

http://ret.cleanenergyregulator.gov.au/Latest-Updates/2013/April/one-million-solar-panel-systems-installed
Data released today by the Clean Energy Regulator shows more than one million (1 000 643) households in Australia are now equipped with solar photovoltaic panels. Today's postcode data also shows that more than 794 345 solar hot water and air source heat pump systems were also installed under the Renewable Energy Target.

The Renewable Energy Target is designed to deliver on the Australian Government's commitment to ensure the equivalent of at least 20 per cent of Australia's electricity comes from renewable sources by 2020.
Under the Renewable Energy Target, the Small-scale Renewable Energy Scheme creates a financial incentive through the creation and trade of small-scale technology certificates for homeowners who install eligible renewable energy systems, such as solar hot water heaters, air source heat pumps and solar panels, based on the amount of electricity an eligible system generates or displaces.

See the Small-scale Renewable Energy Scheme for more information about small-scale renewable energy system installations under the Renewable Energy Target.

The Battle of the Blogs? Whitlock goes to War...

Good day folks, you're all in for a bit of a treat as it happens, so I hope you're sitting comfortably. Before I go any further, I should issue a 'long read' warning. This blog piece is going to be fairly long, quite involved in its detail, but hopefully very enjoyable if you despise and detest climate change denial, as I do. But first, an explanation of the circumstances.

The other day, on Twitter, I indulged in a bit of regular fun-poking at James Delingpole, as I often do because, quite simply, the man just invites it. For those not in the know, Delingpole is a pretty nasty character really. He writes regular blog pieces and op-eds for Breitbart and The Spectator, usually on climate change, but also on other subjects as well. He is usually, and seemingly, unashamedly vicious, as will become apparent in my coverage of him and his behaviour in this piece. Given his behaviour, I am not afraid, occasionally to indulge in a bit of 'ad-hominem' warfare myself, ind…

5 Companies and Their Efforts to Reduce the Environmental Impact of Manufacturing

By Rana Tarakji
The Industrial Revolution has undoubtedly affected the environment. From pollution to global warming, the environment has taken on a lot of the burden for many of the advancements that humans have enjoyed.
Unfortunately, the manufacturing industry is one of the biggest contributors to the significant damages and hazards on the environment. Manufacturing companies are among the biggest producers of solid, liquid, and gaseous wastes that lead to huge levels of pollution.
Although many manufacturing companies still do not have policies and practices in place to reduce their negative impact on the environment, there are many who are taking the lead to a more sustainable and environment-friendly approach.
Coca Cola When it comes to beverage manufacturers, Coca Cola is among the biggest around the world. They have started taking on a more responsible environmental commitment by making water preservation, sustainable packaging, and energy and climate protection among their goals.…
