RenewableEnergyStocks.com: Massive collection of news stories, blog links, and articles on renewables and clean tech. Includes some unique content, like an analysis of the implications of today's solar silicon shortage, which "will likely end at some time from 2008 to 2010" when production levels are expected to at least double. "it is reasonable to suppose that the solar silicon shortage will continue in 2007, but will be greatly reduced in 2008 and will come to an end by 2010," which has some implications for thin-film producers.  "In industrialized nations with solar incentives, such as the USA, Germany, and Japan, the trend is towards a need for smaller and higher efficiency solar panels, which means that silicon is best suited for this market. In the developing world the need is for cheaper solar panels that may take up more space, so that low cost thin films are best suited for that market."  12:36:27 AM  permalink
