The future of energy and the Smart Grid is dependent on smarter buildings that use disruptive technologies such as energy storage and building automation to be more efficient.
According to the American Wind Energy Association’s annual report, wind energy growth has been increasing in the past 5 years.
According to an analysis by Mercom Capital Group, the solar industry’s venture capital (VC) deals grew while the overall investment decreased by 50 percent. The reason for this is the current overcapacity problems. Policy changes and lower tariff announcements in some of the largest solar markets, such as Germany and Italy, are also contributing factors. Thus, a more cautious approach to investing in the solar sector this year is to be expected.
