Cleantech Investment News; China Leads G-20 Members in Clean Energy Finance and Investment

Cleantech News; China Leads G-20 Members in Clean Energy Finance and Investment

Washington, DC - -(Investorideas.com renewable energy/ green newswire) For the first time, China led the United States and other G-20 members in 2009 clean energy investments and finance, according to data released today by The Pew Charitable Trusts. Last year, China invested $34.6 billion in the clean energy economy – nearly double the United States’ total of $18.6 billion. Over the last five years, the United States also trailed five G-20 members (Turkey, Brazil, China, the United Kingdom, and Italy) in the rate of clean energy investment growth.


In Who’s Winning the Clean Energy Race? Growth, Competition and Opportunity in the World’s Largest Economies (PDF),http://www.pewtrusts.org/uploadedFiles/wwwpewtrustsorg/Reports/Global_warming/G-20%20Report.pdf Pew examines key financial, investment and technological trends related to G-20 members and the clean energy economy. The report tracks and measures global investment activity – ranging from venture capital, initial public offerings from companies seeking to expand, mergers and acquisitions and lending for large-scale projects – in this sector. Pew found that the global clean energy economy has experienced remarkable growth:

Globally, clean energy investments have increased 230 percent since 2005.

Investment by nearly all G-20 members grew by more than 50 percent over the past five years.

Despite a worldwide recession, global clean energy investments reached $162 billion in 2009.

G-20 members accounted for more than 90 percent of worldwide clean energy finance and investment.

More than 250 gigawatts of renewable energy generating capacity have been installed around the world, producing six percent of global energy.

Global clean energy investments are projected to reach $200 billion in 2010.

“Even in the midst of a global recession, the clean energy market has experienced impressive growth,” said Phyllis Cuttino, who directs the Pew Environment Group’s Global Warming Campaign. “Countries are jockeying for leadership. They know that investing in clean energy can renew manufacturing bases, and create export opportunities, jobs and businesses.”



“The facts speak for themselves,” said Bloomberg New Energy Finance Chief Executive Michael Liebreich. “2009 clean energy investment in China totaled $34.6 billion, while in the United States it totaled $18.6 billion. China is now clearly the world leader in attracting new capital and making new investments in this area.”

Countries with strong nationwide policy frameworks, including renewable energy standards, carbon markets, priority loans for renewable energy projects and mandated clean energy targets, such as China, Brazil, Spain, United Kingdom and Germany, have the most robust clean energy sectors as a percentage of their economies. Countries without such policy frameworks including the United States, Japan, and Australia lag behind.

“The United States’ competitive position is at risk in the emerging clean energy economy,” said Cuttino. “Our nation has a critical choice to make: pass the federal policies necessary to position us as the world leader in the large and growing global clean energy market or continue to watch as China and other countries race ahead.”



The United States’ clean energy finance and investments lagged behind 10 G-20 members in percentage of gross domestic product. For instance, in relative terms, Spain invested five times more than the United States last year, and China and the United Kingdom three times more.



The United States did lead G-20 members in venture capital and private equity investments associated with technology innovation. However, it trailed in 2009 asset financing, with only $11.2 billion, while China led with $29.8 billion. Asset financing serves as a key barometer of clean energy deployment, job creation and business growth.



Pew published Who’s Winning the Clean Energy Race? to highlight how G-20 members are participating and where they rank in the clean energy economy. The data have been compiled and reviewed by Pew’s research partner, Bloomberg New Energy Finance, the world’s leading independent provider of news, data, research and analysis to decision-makers in renewable energy, carbon markets, energy smart technologies, and carbon capture and storage. The report’s primary focus is on investment as it is the fuel that propels the innovation, commercialization, manufacturing and installation of clean energy technologies.

Green Car News; FedEx (NYSE: FDX) Introduces First All-Electric Trucks To Be Used in the U.S. Parcel Delivery Business

Green Car News; FedEx (NYSE: FDX) Introduces First All-Electric Trucks To Be Used in the U.S. Parcel Delivery Business



New Clean-Technology Navistar Vehicle to Debut on Road Show Following Iconic Route 66

CHICAGO--(Investorideas.com renewable energy/green newswire )--FedEx Corp. (NYSE: FDX) today announced the expansion of its alternative-energy vehicle fleet with the first all-electric FedEx parcel delivery trucks in the United States. Four purpose-built electric trucks—optimized for electric operation from the wheels up—are slated to hit the road in the Los Angeles area starting in June 2010, joining more than 1,800 alternative-energy vehicles already in service for FedEx around the world.



“In 2004, we were the first global company to invest in hybrid-electric commercial trucks, and now we’re introducing the even cleaner all-electric parcel delivery truck. We’re making these investments, and invite others to join us, so that together we can speed the transition to a cleaner transportation system.”

.“FedEx has a history of changing what’s possible, both in the innovative services we offer customers and in the way we offer those services,” said John Formisano, vice president, Global Vehicles, FedEx Express. “In 2004, we were the first global company to invest in hybrid-electric commercial trucks, and now we’re introducing the even cleaner all-electric parcel delivery truck. We’re making these investments, and invite others to join us, so that together we can speed the transition to a cleaner transportation system.”

Rather than creating its own proprietary technology, FedEx is again turning to the marketplace to spur solutions that can rapidly be scaled up to provide affordable and reliable service to a wide range of delivery truck operators. It is purchasing its first North American all-electric vehicles from two different suppliers to evaluate the robustness of this technology for demanding daily FedEx Express deliveries in the Los Angeles area and provide information to help guide future FedEx vehicle purchases.

Two of the new all-electric trucks come from Navistar, and are being assembled in Indiana. These are based on the Modec design already operated by FedEx in Europe. Ten such Modec vehicles serve FedEx routes in London and five more are on order for Paris.



Another pair of electric vehicles is being purchased from a different manufacturer for delivery to the Los Angeles area later in 2010. Both sets of electric vehicles are designed with a range that allows many FedEx Express couriers to make a full eight-hour shift of deliveries before their vehicles need recharging.



A FedEx-branded prototype all-electric truck from Navistar is being unveiled today at an event in Chicago to kick-off a demonstration tour of the technology. The vehicle will be operated for FedEx customers, employees, and local officials in several stops along historic Route 66 between Chicago and Los Angeles.



The “Charge Up Route 66” tour is intended to pay homage to America’s transportation past and the facilitation of inter-city commerce furthered by development of early highways such as Route 66. The electric truck demonstration tour is also designed to underscore a national initiative advocated by Frederick W. Smith, president, chairman and CEO of FedEx Corp., in testimony to a U.S. Senate subcommittee last month. Smith called for a comprehensive program to encourage affordable electrification of local transportation to foster more domestic energy production, less reliance on imported petroleum, and an overall reduction of greenhouse gas emissions.



Once in California, the Navistar electric truck will be demonstrated at the FORTUNE Brainstorm Green conference, an environmental leadership event scheduled April 12-14 and featuring a presentation by Mitch Jackson, vice president, environmental affairs and sustainability, FedEx Corp. To track the vehicle’s route, visit http://www.fedex.com/electric.



“Electric trucks are still in their infancy, but we think they have a bright future in the mix of alternative energy vehicles,” Jackson said. “Reliability and maintainability is critical for FedEx because of our commitment to superior customer service, so we’ll be giving these trucks a real workout, helping the manufacturers refine their future offerings. Down the road, we see the possibility of charging electric vehicle fleets with low- or zero-emission electricity generated on site by such innovations as solar electric arrays, like those at FedEx locations in California, New Jersey and Germany, or the Bloom Energy Server, another new technology we’re helping to pioneer through evaluating it at our solar-powered hub in Oakland.”



By the end of June, the FedEx alternative energy fleet will have grown to 1,869 vehicles in service around the world, helping to diversify and expand the all-electric and hybrid-electric vehicle market around the globe. Beyond the nine new electric trucks to be deployed in Los Angeles and Paris, FedEx has purchased ten additional hybrid-electric vehicles that will be added to its California fleet throughout the spring, based in Oakland.



FedEx currently operates the largest hybrid fleet in the transportation industry, along with one of the largest alternative energy vehicle fleets, and is committed to improving its overall vehicle fuel efficiency 20 percent by 2020. In conjunction with Environmental Defense Fund, FedEx led the launch of the development of the first commercial-grade hybrid-electric delivery vehicles. That hybrid-electric technology has now been adopted by more than 100 fleets, and the FedEx hybrid vehicle fleet recently passed the five million mile mark in daily service—the equivalent of 200 trips around the Equator. FedEx also works closely with organizations like CALSTART, North America’s leading consortium dedicated to the growth of a clean transportation technologies industry, to encourage the development of market-ready alternative energy commercial vehicles. John Formisano is currently the chairman of the CALSTART board after five years of service as a board member.



About FedEx Sustainability



FedEx is committed to connecting the world responsibly and resourcefully. We have set long-term goals to reduce aircraft emissions 20 percent by 2020, increase FedEx Express vehicle efficiency by 20 percent by 2020, and expand on-site renewable energy generation and procurement of renewable energy credits. FedEx works to achieve these ambitious goals through EarthSmart—the FedEx roadmap for operating in an increasingly sustainable way and engaging our team members, customers, business partners, and the circle of influencer communities to help us reduce the environmental impact of our daily business operations. FedEx has been recognized for its sustainability commitment through inclusion in the Dow Jones Sustainability Index—a global list of the world’s largest, most sustainable organizations—and ranks #93 in Newsweek’s 2009 Top 500 Greenest Companies.

Smart Grid Stocks; GE Smart Grid Technology, Enabling Customers in Germany to Track Energy and Water Consumption



To Reduce Household Environmental Impact, Super-Integrated Smart Meter Deployment Provides Real-Time Usage Data

ERDING, Germany--(Investorideas.com renewable energy/green newswire) --The 33,000 citizens of Erding, Germany, will benefit from the environmental advantages of GE smart grid technologies in a major step toward managing energy and water consumption. Stadtwerke Erding, the city’s public works department, is implementing a groundbreaking pilot installation that will consolidate and report data to homeowners on energy and utility usage, including electricity, gas, water and heating.

“Instead of being smarter simply with electricity, Erding officials are leveraging GE solutions to help them make decisions based on the complete picture of utility consumption and carbon consequences.”

.Public works departments like those in Erding are part of a trend in Germany to re-communalize key town infrastructure. Towns are taking a financial stake in multi-fuel utilities, water, district heating, transport and communications. These municipalities provide ideal environments to showcase technologies available today that can increase efficiency and have a positive environmental impact.

“We are developing a complete picture of our energy and resource usage to help us become more efficient providers and consumers of energy,” said Walter Huber, general manager of Stadtwerke Erding. “What we are learning will help us formulate practical, effective and timely programs to reduce our carbon footprint without sacrificing lifestyle.”



The smart meters are connected to a central office for analysis and planning via a data concentrator, providing data to optimize usage efficiency and minimizing waste. Benchmarking data from last year will contribute to emissions and efficiency programs in 2010 and beyond.



“The municipality of Erding is making history by applying the benefits of smart grid technologies across all of the utilities in a home, maximizing the ways we can understand and lessen their effect on our planet,” said Keith Redfearn, general manager—transmission and distribution in Europe for GE Energy Services.



By consolidating infrastructure, the program also delivers operational advantages, reducing up-front costs and allowing other communications-dependent functions like security, health, safety and assisted living monitoring to be added as the city develops those solutions.



“Instead of being smarter simply with electricity, Erding officials are leveraging GE solutions to help them make decisions based on the complete picture of utility consumption and carbon consequences.”

Renewable Energy Stock News ; GE (NYSE: GE) Announces Major European Offshore Wind Expansion

Renewable Energy Stock News ; GE (NYSE: GE) Announces Major European Offshore Wind Expansion with a Planned €340 Million Investment for Manufacturing, Engineering and Service Facilities in Four Countries


Plan Focused on GE’s Next Generation 4-megawatt Direct Drive Wind Turbine and Promising Offshore Wind Sector

BRUSSELS--(Investorideas.com renewable energy/green news )--GE (NYSE: GE) today announced plans to invest approximately €340 million to develop or expand its wind turbine manufacturing, engineering and service facilities in four European countries—the United Kingdom, Norway, Sweden and Germany—signaling GE’s deep commitment to the promising European offshore wind sector.



“These announcements lay the foundation for us to begin scaling our offshore business, technology and supply chain locally in Europe where we see the greatest growth opportunity.”

.“Offshore wind will play a vital role in meeting the growing global demand for cleaner, renewable energy and has a bright future here in Europe,” said Ferdinando (Nani) Beccalli-Falco, president and CEO of GE International. “These investments will position us to help develop Europe’s vast, untapped offshore wind resources, while also creating new jobs for both GE and our suppliers.”


At the core of GE’s European expansion plans is the development of GE’s next generation wind turbine, a 4-megawatt machine designed specifically for offshore deployment. As the largest wind turbine in GE’s fleet, it will incorporate advanced drive train and control technologies gained through GE’s acquisition of ScanWind. The 4-megawatt wind turbine will feature GE’s innovative technology that eliminates the need for gearboxes. This technology is already being demonstrated at a test site in Hundhammerfjellet, Norway, where the first ScanWind direct drive unit has been operating for more than five years.
“GE’s proven reliability on more than 13,500 land units coupled with ScanWind’s proven offshore, gearless design enables us to provide our customers the reliable solutions necessary for the offshore wind industry,” said Victor Abate, vice president—renewable energy for GE Power & Water. “These announcements lay the foundation for us to begin scaling our offshore business, technology and supply chain locally in Europe where we see the greatest growth opportunity.”



The European Wind Energy Association expects that Europe’s offshore wind sector will grow more than 70% in 2010, with continued growth forecast over the next several years. If all of the offshore wind projects currently in development are completed, they could produce 10% of the European Union’s total electricity while avoiding 200 million tons of CO2 emissions each year. Overall, offshore wind is expected to make a major contribution in helping the European Union reach its goal to have 20% of its energy produced from renewable resources by the year 2020.



Key elements of GE’s European expansion announcement include:

Norway
GE will add to its existing presence in Norway with plans to create a new Offshore Technology Development Center in Oslo and will expand its advanced demonstration unit production and service facilities in Verdal. GE also has joined the Nowitech Research Center in Norway to participate in joint research projects on offshore wind topics. Norway is the planned site for the testing and demonstration of the first 4-megawatt wind turbines offshore. This will result in approximately 100 jobs and a €75 million investment related to GE’s offshore wind business in Norway by 2016.

Sweden
In Sweden, GE also will expand its current offshore wind facilities by developing a Conceptual and Systems Design Center in Karlstad, Sweden. A technology demonstration unit is planned to be installed in Gothenburg harbor, and GE also will join the Chalmers Wind Energy Center in Gothenburg.

S&P, TSX Launch S&P/TSX Clean Technology Index

S&P, TSX Launch S&P/TSX Clean Technology Index



TORONTO, Mar 25, 2010 (Investorideas.com renewable energy/green newswire ) Standard & Poor's, the world's leading index provider and TMX Group Inc., operator of Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX), announced today the launch of the S&P/TSX Clean Technology Index. The S&P/TSX Clean Technology Index measures the performance of companies listed on TSX whose core business is in the development and deployment of green technologies.

"A growing number of investors are interested in the clean technology investing theme," says Jasmit Bhandal, director of S&P Indices in Canada. "This new index provides a gauge for investors to assess the hypothesis that global interest in clean technology will lead to a favourable environment for clean technology companies."

The S&P/TSX Clean Technology Index draws companies from the investable universe of public companies whose activities provide value-added solutions to environmental problems. S&P and TSX chose Jantzi-Sustainalytics, one of the world's leading providers of environmental, social, and governance research and analysis, to develop and maintain the Clean Technology Classification System.
"In building the classification system for the index, our team at Jantzi-Sustainalytics drew on our knowledge of how global environmental trends are impacting capital markets," states Bob Mann, Managing Director, Jantzi-Sustainalytics. "Jantzi-Sustainalytics is a leader in this space and is uniquely positioned to identify the Canadian securities whose core business is in the development and deployment of green technologies."



Jantzi-Sustainalytics screened TSX listed securities according to a methodology which first evaluates companies for inclusion based on involvement in and strategic commitment to five environment themes: Renewable Energy - Production and Distribution, Renewable Energy - Specialized Suppliers, Energy Efficiency, Waste Reduction and Water Management and Low Impact materials and products. We believe it is the first comprehensive index of Canadian companies that are focused on addressing environmental issues such as climate change.



"Toronto Stock Exchange has become a key listing, financing and trading destination for clean technology companies," says Ungad Chadda, Senior Vice President, Toronto Stock Exchange. "The creation of the S&P/TSX Clean Technology Index is a significant step forward for this important new industry sector."

Green Auto News; Balqon Corporation (OTCBB: BLQN.OB), Electrovaya (TSX: EFL), Chrysler Group, Lexus


Delta BC March 23, 2010 (Investorideas.com renewable energy/green newswire), InvestorIdeas.com and its green investor portal Renewableenergystocks.com report on recent green auto news from Balqon Corporation (OTCBB: BLQN.OB),Electrovaya (TSX: EFL), Chrysler Group, Lexus and how the global economic crisis of the past two years has resulted in greener consumers (including author) .

By: Dawn Van Zant
As I read through news hi-lites and developments in the green auto industry I am inspired, motivated and excited. A year ago I was a proud driver of a BMW 330ci and my daughter Cali leased a brand new Honda Fit. I thought we had a balance between the two cars and were meeting our environmental standards between us.

I was waiting to find my ideal green car to replace my BMW and was constantly watching what BMW, Mercedes and other luxury car makers were up to in their next generation of environmentally friendly cars.

As irony and fate would have it, Cali crashed her fuel efficient Honda Fit last Thanksgiving and once we finally got a settlement for the write- off; the proceeds were placed with a close associate we knew in the auto industry that was promising to get a great deal for us at the auto auction. Hard times had fallen on this small business owner, the funds were confiscated by Revenue Canada we were told, and we were without a vehicle to replace hers or unable to get the money back at this time.

We decided to sell my BMW to replace her confiscated funds and luck and fate went sideways again (long story) and as a result we are currently walking to Starbucks daily.

We are enjoying our morning walks in the sunshine with coffee in hand, contemplating our next car purchase. The exercise is great, the break from the computer inspires new ideas for our business and we think about our next purchase.
With gas prices rising again and new green car options coming out all the time from some of the best in the industry, it is easier than before to choose to become a green consumer.

From Chrysler’s release, dated 3.22.10:
Ram Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV)
Chrysler Group has been selected for a U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) grant of up to $48 million as part of a $2.4 billion American Recovery and Reinvestment Act DOE Vehicle Electrification program. Chrysler Group is planning to build a total of 140 Ram PHEVs for a three-year demonstration project that includes various geographic and climatic locations across the United States.

"This initiative represents how government, automotive industry, suppliers and key partners are reaching common goals and demonstrates how rapidly this type of advanced technology can be brought to market," said Paolo Ferrero, Senior Vice President—Powertrain, Chrysler Group LLC. "DOE-support for domestic advanced technology is an important enabler for Chrysler Group and its key suppliers in order to understand and test customer acceptance and the capability of PHEV systems in a variety of real-world conditions."



The Ram PHEV features Chrysler Group's 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 with a two mode hybrid transmission and a 12KwHr lithium ion battery. The vehicle is capable of up to 20 miles of zero-emission, pure-electric range without the need for gasoline. An overall fuel economy improvement more than 65 percent is expected for average drive cycles. Chrysler Group has partnered with Electrovaya Inc. (TSX: EFL) to supply the advanced lithium Ion batteries for the Ram PHEV test fleet.



The DOE grant will expedite the development of vehicle-electrification technology. More than 21 Chrysler Group partners across the U.S., including utility companies, government agencies and Universities will independently test the Ram PHEV and provide valuable data for the advancement of the technology.

Water-Stocks.com Reports on Water footprint of Agriculture for World Water Day

Water-Stocks.com Reports on Water footprint of Agriculture for World Water Day


Valcent Products (OTCBB: VCTZF) VertiCrop high density vertical growth system technology addresses water use

POINT ROBERTS, WA and DELTA, BC –March 18, 2010 Investorideas.com and its water investor portal, www.Water-Stocks.com, report on the virtual water footprint of agriculture as World Water Day, March 22 approaches.

The overall goal of the World Water Day on 22 March 2010 campaign is to raise the profile of water quality at the political level so that water quality considerations are made alongside those of water quantity. As issues of water quality and water scarcity are addressed; agriculture having one of the greatest impacts on the global water footprint is a primary topic of concern.

One company working at providing a partial solution is Valcent Products Inc. (OTCBB: VCTZF), with its VertiCrop high density vertical growth system technology. Chris Bradford, CEO of Valcent Products Inc noted “ World Water Day is becoming increasingly important in creating awareness of severe shortages of potable and useable water in most places in the world. In this regard, Valcent’s two core business plans to market both the Verticrop and Alphacrop is timely in that these high density vertical growing systems save up to 95% of the water used in a field crop to produce the same amount of vegetables. This sustainable water savings is becoming more critical in many drought areas which in turn has an impact on food security as well. “



According to Thomas M. Kostigen, author of "The Green Blue Book: The Simple Water-Savings Guide to Everything in Your Life", being released on World Water Day, March 22; “It takes about 123 gallons of water to grow a pound of oats, for example. So the virtual water count of this pound of oats is 123 gallons. Now, extend this to a slice of beef. Since cattle have to feed on oats or some other grain and obviously need to drink water themselves, their virtual water count is higher than that of what they chew. It also takes water to process their meat. The virtual water footprint of a pound of beef, therefore, is 1,500 gallons. When you understand that there's a virtual water count to producing everything -- a beer (20 gallons), a glass of wine (30 gallons), a cup of coffee (37 gallons), a cup of tea (5 gallons), a car (39,000 gallons), a bicycle (480 gallons) -- you can make water-smart choices.”

More info on the Green Blue Book: http://www.thegreenbluebook.com/

Mrs. Margaret Catley-Carlson, Chair of the Global Agenda Council on Water Security commenting on WATER PERSPECTIVES FROM DAVOS 2010 reports, “A major new exercise on a Vision for Agriculture attracted most of the world’s elite Food Production people; water was a frequently mentioned, together with (still nascent) ideas on how to support the efforts to use less water yet grow more food.”

Full article: http://www.maximsnews.com/news20100217catleycarlsondavos11002170801.htm

The reason this is such an urgent issue is explained at www.Worldchanging.com, “Global crop production requires more than 6 trillion cubic meters of water each year, with nearly a quarter of supplies flowing to rice paddies. Livestock production requires the most water resources in the food chain. One hamburger, for instance, needs 2,400 liters of water on average.”

PORTLAND, Ore. & OAKLAND, Calif.-- March 16 (Investorideas.com Renewabke energy/green newswire )--Following one of the worst years in economic history, signs of hope have begun to emerge for the clean-tech sector, with clean energy becoming a driving force for global economic recovery from Beijing to Seoul, and Washington D.C. to Brussels.

“Despite severe economic conditions, clean-energy markets were able to hold their momentum in 2009 as many regional and federal governments and private corporations focused on clean-energy investments as a way to pull out of the global economic tailspin,” said Ron Pernick, Clean Edge co-founder and managing director. “From the smart grid and energy efficiency to renewable energy generation and advanced battery storage, clean tech continues to be a major driver of regional job growth, economic recovery, and technological competitiveness.”



As always, the Clean Energy Trends report includes growth projections for the major clean-energy sectors (solar PV, wind, and biofuels), as well as global clean-tech investment and jobs data. The report’s key findings include:

•The global production and wholesale pricing of ethanol and biodiesel reached $44.9 billion in 2009 and is projected to grow to $112.5 billion by 2019. In 2009, the biofuel market consisted of more than 23.6 billion gallons of ethanol and biodiesel production worldwide.

•Wind power (new installation capital costs) is projected to expand from $63.5 billion in 2009 to $114.5 billion in 2019. Last year’s global wind power installations reached a record 37,500 MW. China, the first-time global leader in new installations, accounted for more than a third of new installations, with 13,000 MW.

•Solar PV will grow from a $30.7 billion industry in 2009 to $98.9 billion by 2019. New installations reached almost 6 GW worldwide in 2009, a nearly sixfold increase from five years earlier. But because of rapidly declining solar PV prices, industry revenue in 2009 fell about 20 percent, from $38.5 billion in 2008.

•U.S.-based venture capital investments in energy technologies declined from $3.2 billion in 2008 to $2.2 billion in 2009. However, clean energy’s percentage of total U.S. venture capital investments continued to rise, accounting for 12.5 percent of total activity in 2009. This represented the largest share in the history of the clean-energy asset class.

•The global solar PV and wind power industries together currently account for a total of more than 830,000 jobs worldwide. By 2019, global industry growth will push the total to more than 3.3 million jobs.

The report also examines many of the issues shaping the clean-energy marketplace, including the failure of nations to reach a global climate accord in Copenhagen; China’s seemingly unstoppable rise to global clean-tech dominance; and the growing ubiquity and declining cost of clean-energy technologies. An IPO Watch List tracks clean-technology companies that have recently filed for IPOs, as well as other likely candidates. The report also outlines five key trends that will impact the markets in the coming years:



•Carbon as a Feedstock: Win-Win or Pipe Dream?

•Steep PV Price Drops Redefine the Solar Industry

•Biomass Fires up Utilities and District Heating

•Clean-Tech Megaprojects See Big Advances – and Big Challenges

•High Speed Rail Surges Ahead – But at What Cost?

Solar Stocks News ; XsunX (OTCBB: XSNX) Moves Closer to Commercializing Its Innovative Technology for the Replacement of Silicon Solar Cells

Solar Stocks News ; XsunX (OTCBB: XSNX) Moves Closer to Commercializing Its Innovative Technology for the Replacement of Silicon Solar Cells
Category: Investment, Solar, Renewable Energy

ALISO VIEJO, Calif. - March 8, 2010 (Investorideas.com Renewable/green Newswire) - XsunX, Inc. (OTC BB: XSNX), the developer of advanced, thin-film photovoltaic (TFPV) solar cell technologies and manufacturing processes, today announced the company has reached a significant milestone in its development process: the completion of a co-evaporation processing chamber design that combines several thermal evaporation techniques in one unified process to produce the CIGS (Copper Indium Gallium diSelenide) solar cell's absorber layer.

"This development is crucial to both the equipment and process technology side of our efforts," said Tom Djokovich, CEO of XsunX, Inc. "The completion of this chamber converges several operations that we have been developing separately, allowing all of the processes necessary to produce the CIGS layer for our cross-industry technology to work in unison. This development increases the rate with which we can develop this new technology towards our initial baseline commercialization goals. This is a fundamental next step in our plan to commercialize our hybrid CIGS manufacturing process, and deliver a potential replacement solution for the use of silicon."
The hybrid cross-industry system XsunX is developing is an integrated delivery method that uses proven material handling and automation technologies from the Hard Disk equipment (HD) industry and adapts them to small-area thin-film photovoltaic (TFPV) co-evaporation processes to configure the absorber layer, or solar power conversion portion of the cell, to produce low cost solar cells. The chamber will process 125 mm x 125 mm production-sized substrates that the company anticipates will be replicated as the key component of a full commercial production toolset, after additional testing of the chamber itself.

"This integration of numerous processing technologies into a single chamber design will allow us to begin testing the value of hard disk material handling and systems management technologies," said XsunX's CTO Robert Wendt. "From the start, we envisioned this chamber as the key to our ability to viably produce commercial quantities of CIGS solar cells using small-area processing techniques."

Mr. Wendt further added, "We believe that a key component to our success lies in our use of the co-evaporation process on individual small-area substrates, or wafers similar in size to silicon wafers, to produce the solar absorbing portion of the solar cell."


Co-evaporation has been at the forefront of technology development efforts at institutes worldwide such as the National Renewable Energy Laboratories (NREL) here in the USA, and other renowned agencies including the Institute of Energy Conversion/University of Delaware and Stuttgart in Germany. Each of these agencies has achieved world class efficiency conversion capability utilizing co-evaporation techniques.

Chamber completion is the result of experimentation and design modifications to both equipment and process technology, and in addition to being the foundation on which XsunX will continue to build its technology, also serves as a distinguishing advancement in the company's intellectual capital portfolio. "From the beginning, we envisioned the completion of the chamber design, and its co-evaporation system, as a differentiating feat of the scientific team - a demonstration of their engineering and development prowess," noted Djokovich.
