Paris, FR – Some renewables advocates are already pleased with the positive results from the United Nations Climate Change Conference under way in Paris. The event, also known as the 21st session of the Conference of the Parties (COP21), may be in full swing, but some industry experts say some of the work has been done already – and that bodes well for solar.

...[...]... ‘I hope it will have a large impact in terms of government investment, looking at different ways to reduce barriers and red tape,’ says Youness Scally, executive director of Everybody Solar, based in Santa Cruz, Calif. ‘That's one of the largest things government can do.’

The general public hears a lot about the benefits of solar and other forms of ‘renewable energy’. Solar, in particular, seems like common sense: it’s sunny, we know we can turn the sun into electricity, so why aren’t we doing it?


The biggest issue with the cost of solar versus the cost of non-renewable sources of electricity is scale and infrastructure. Coal, natural gas, and hydroelectric power plants, with their large energy and carbon footprints, are massive industrial complexes and systems that have been developed through decades, often with large subsidies.
