Montpelier, VT, April 2, 2020 – The nonprofit Clean Energy States Alliance (CESA) today launched the 100% Clean Energy Collaborative, a new initiative to provide critical information sharing and knowledge transfer among states that have established 100% clean energy goals for their electricity sectors. The rapid adoption of aggressive clean energy targets by states has been one of the most important energy and climate change policy developments of the past few years; 14 states plus the District of Columbia have now set such goals. The new Collaborative will create a forum for those states to cooperate on program development in order to speed progress towards achieving the states’ ambitious targets.
Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners P/S (CIP), a fund management company based in Denmark focused on energy infrastructure, announced it has entered into an agreement with Plus Renewable Technologies Ltd and Avondale Solar, LLC to acquire their interests in Fighting Jays Solar, a 440 MWdc solar PV project in Fort Bend County, Texas, which they are developing via their affiliate AP Solar Holdings, LLC.
According to the U.S. Solar Market Insight 2019 Year-in-Review report, released by the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) and Wood Mackenzie, solar accounted for 40% of all new electric generating capacity in the U.S. in 2019, its highest share ever and more than any other source of electricity, with 13.3 gigawatts (GW) installed.
TELOS Clean Energy, a turnkey clean energy developer headquartered in Connecticut, announced the closing of a joint venture with Goldman Sachs‘ Alternative Energy Investing Group to develop, construct, own, and operate distributed solar power projects. The solar projects will be expected to sell power to commercial, industrial and municipal customers.
