The Solar Car Parade of World Solar Challenge will start at 3:00 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 25, 2015 (Adelaide time…although it is still Oct. 24, 2015 in some parts of the world), at Victoria Square of Adelaide, Australia. It’s a glorious day for Solar Car Parade and a glorious time for Solar Energy Future!

Below is the video of the Solar Cars that came in on Saturday, Oct. 24, 2015. A great big applause for all of these teams, students, and supporters for their time, energy, and effort. It’s been a great learning opportunity for all of us! More will be posted and video uploaded later.

 Below is the video of all of the solar cars that participated in World Solar Challenge 2015 Solar Car Parade on Oct. 25, 2015, at the Victoria Square of Adelaide, Australia:

Feed-In-Tariff Is Fuel For Solar Markets In Asia

Share

If you are in favor of renewable/CLEAN energy, please sign the petition page showing support for FIT/CLEAN Program at http://sunisthefuture.net/?page_id=1065 Thank you.

I can really feel the momentum and growth activity as multiple feeds came in today.  It’s given me a great deal of hope that our combined efforts will be able to solve much of earthlings’ problems.  Reports  from Solarbuzz is expecting Asia-Pacific PV markets to account for 26% of global demand by 2015, compared to the 11% it represents in 2010.  The top five markets, China, Japan, India, Australia, and South Korea, will more than likely to account for 3.3 GW of demand in 2011 alone, with China and Japan leading the region.    This anticipated growth may be due to major policy structure changes in the Asia-Pacific market, APEC (Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation nations).  China, India, and Australia are building on-grid markets.  China, Japan, and South Korea are all energizing their respective domestic demands through various national and provincial programs. It will not be surprising that  China’s 2011 market will reach 174% of its 2010 level.  Much of these developments are due to the help of Feed-In-Tariff.  Please read more at  http://www.solarbuzz.com/our-research/recent-findings/major-asia-pacific-photovoltaic-markets-reach-26-global-demand-2015

Soon afterward, I came across the new announcement by Chinese National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) detailing its new national photovoltaic FIT (Feed-In-Tariff) scheme.  Rates of around one Renminbi (rmb) per kilowatt hour (US$.156/kWh)will be paid, and projects are subject to NDRC approval (unclear process at the moment).  The FIT  rate is expected to change since photovoltaic system costs decline over time and an initial rate of 1.15rmb/kWh will be paid for projects approved before July 1, 2011 and completed by the end of the year whereas projects approved after July 1, 2011 will be at the rate of around 1 rmb per kWh. Please refer to: http://www.pv-magazine.com/news/details/beitrag/china-announces-fit_100003763/

Once again, I would like to call for action for those of us residing in Florida and USA.  We have seen how  carefully planned and executed Feed-In-Tariff (FIT)/CLEAN Program may benefit other countries/communities by creating jobs and economic prosperity.  We have always enjoyed the fruit and labor of our founding fathers, our freedom, our liberty, and our pursuit of happiness.  It is time for us to shoulder the burden of our democratic society.  Let us create more local jobs and economic and energy security by learning more about Feed-In-Tariff/CLEAN Program (by going to the search box at right and type in feed-in-tariff, then read the post and view/listen to the video), and talk to your friends, relatives, neighbors, and write/email your legislators asking them to consider implementing Feed-In-Tariff/CLEAN Program.  Keep on coming back to this site, http://sunisthefuture.net and check for the petition that I will be setting up soon.  Together, we can create many local jobs and economic prosperity for the communities we reside in and make the transition into Renewable Energy Age.

For a quick review of Feed-In-Tariff (FIT), I would like to share a clip from a previous post, showing you how Feed-In-Tariff has already benefited Gainesville, FL region:
