January 24, 2014, by Solar Server Frost & Sullivan predicts that solar photovoltaic (PV) and other renewable energy markets will grow across the Asia-Pacific region in 2014, as the result of new feed-in tariffs and improvements to existing policies.
January 24, 2014,A CNY 1 (16 US cents) per kWh feed-in tariff for large PV projects connecting to the transmission grid ended on 1 January, creating the year-end rush. China’s National Energy Administration announced earlier this month that there were 12GW of 2013 installations, but this preliminary estimate may be exceeded.

January 24, 2014,More than four years after the Ontario Power Authority (OPA) launched North America’s first comprehensive Feed-In Tariff (FIT) Program, Ontario’s renewable energy industry, municipalities, Aboriginal communities and community organizations continue to show strong interest in the program. Nearly 80 percent of net applications have Aboriginal, community, municipal or public sector participation
