Robber fly - Nature photographer Thomas Shahan specializes in amazing portraits of tiny insects. It isn't easy. Shahan says that this Robber Fly (Holcocephala fusca), for instance, is "skittish" and doesn't like its picture taken.

“… 4 - Energy (again)

The natural resources of the planet are finite and will not support the continuation of what you've been doing. We've been saying this for a decade. Watch for increased science and increased funding for alternate ways of creating electricity (finally). Watch for the very companies who have the most to lose being the ones who fund it. It is the beginning of a full realization that a change of thinking is at hand. You can take things from Gaia that are energy, instead of physical resources. We speak yet again about geothermal, about tidal, about wind. Again, we plead with you not to over-engineer this. For one of the things that Human Beings do in a technological age is to over-engineer simple things. Look at nuclear - the most over-engineered and expensive steam engine in existence!

Your current ideas of capturing energy from tidal and wave motion don't have to be technical marvels. Think paddle wheel on a pier with waves, which will create energy in both directions [waves coming and going] tied to a generator that can power dozens of neighborhoods, not full cities. Think simple and decentralize the idea of utilities. The same goes for wind and geothermal. Think of utilities for groups of homes in a cluster. You won't have a grid failure if there is no grid. This is the way of the future, and you'll be more inclined to have it sooner than later if you do this, and it won't cost as much….”

China turning excess solar energy inward

China's government agencies are formulating a series of measures to help the solar photovoltaic market, aiming at an increase in total installed photovoltaic capacity to 10 million kilowatts by 2015, China Securities Journal reported.

China's National Energy Bureau recently issued a notification, directing various provinces, regions and cities to file their respective plans for developing distributed photovoltaic-power applications and the locations where they would be demonstration before Oct. 15.

The notification caps the number of photovoltaic power generation systems in any single region or city at three, and total installed capacity at 500,000 kilowatts. This means the total capacity of distributed photovoltaic power generation systems in various cities and regions of the country's 31 provinces may exceed 15 million kilowatts during the initial period.

The implementation areas for these projects include Beijing, Tianjin and Shanghai. The government will provide subsidies for the implementation of these projects and to users of these projects.

Meanwhile, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology is planning to set up entry barriers for photovoltaic enterprises entering the market.

Under the solar energy development project of China's Five-Year Economic Development Plan (2011-2015), China will focus for the first time on installing distributed photovoltaic power generation systems, aimed at increasing installed capacity to 10 million kilowatts by 2015. Currently, installed capacity is almost zero, and there is ample room for development in this area.

Given the current installation cost of distributed photovoltaic power generation systems at 15,000 yuan (US$2,380) per kilowatts, the total investment in solar-power generation is expected to reach 150 billion yuan (US$23.8 billion) by 2015.

The report said the government would aggressively promote distributed photovoltaic power generation at industrial parks in cities and large enterprises. The price of solar photovoltaic power is close to those of the power used by industries and businesses, and the resulting economic benefits would usher in an era of fair prices for electricity.

Since photovoltaic exports are being obstructed by the US anti-dumping move and countervailing duty, and the EU's anti-dumping duties, the domestic market could increasingly consume overcapacities in photovoltaic power, the report said, citing an analyst.

The analyst predicted that the domestic market would absorb 30%-50% of China's production of photovoltaic batteries in the future.

To cope with overproduction and vicious competition in the photovoltaic industry, the government will raise entry barriers and promote orderly development.

During the five-year plan period, the government aims to create a photovoltaic enterprise with annual sales of more than 100 billion yuan (US$15.87 billion), 3-5 enterprises with annual sales of more than 50 billion yuan (US$7.93 billion) and 3-4 photovoltaic components companies with annual sales of more than 1 billion yuan (US$158.66 million).

Since the beginning of this year, nearly 80% of China's polysilicon enterprises have suspended production, affecting investments worth more than 50 billion yuan (US$7.93 billion) in the industry.
