Mondaq

Taken together, the changes represent a significant step for Ontario's growing renewable energy sector, and provide some stability in the face of rising concerns over what lies ahead once current FIT contracts, currently entering their construction phase, are built.

Huffington Post
Ever since I was a little kid three smoke stacks dominated horizon across the lake where my grandfather built a cabin in 1919. Then in 2011, the smokestacks at the old Wabamun Power Plant came down, changing the landscape I had known for 50 years. During the lifetime of that old coal-fired power plant, the pace of technological innovation was unprecedented.

The future of distributed generation
Renew Grid
Three main drivers move the needle on distributed generation (DG) implementations: policy, power reliability and the business case, roughly in that order. Let's examine these drivers in light of a recent survey of smart grid executives sponsored by IEEE Smart Grid and conducted by market research firm Zpryme, because those executives' expectations for market growth are undoubtedly motivated by the same drivers.
