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 Some of this might be a bit outdated given time considerations and the fact that I don't get paid for doing this, but I do try and keep it as fresh and new as I can so it's still worth checking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.

The government of Nicaragua plans to generate 80 per cent of its electricity from renewable sources, such wind, biomass, hydro and geothermal, by 2020.
According to Minister of Energy and Mines Emilio Rappaccioli, each year the generation of renewable energy will slowly increase, reaching above 80 per cent by 2020.
Official figures indicate that in 2014 it will reach 52 per cent, 2016 it will be 56 per cent and 74 per cent by 2018.
For 2013, the ministry estimates that renewables will reach the 50.51 per cent, following an investment of over $130m.
Revista Eolica y del Vehiculo Electrico reported plans to expand the Eolo de Nicaragua SA wind farm from 44 MW to 60 MW.
While the capacity of the Amayo wind farm, Nicaragua’s first such facility, may also be increased by 37 MW.
