Thursday, Feb 07, 2013

Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Analyzing Solar Power in the United States" report to their offering.

“Analyzing Solar Power in the United States”

The United States is a leader in the field of solar energy. With California showing the way, the US has many utility-scale solar power plants and there are plans underway to construct several larger solar plants in the country. The largest of these proposed plants is going to be the 968 MW Blythe Solar Power Project, which is going to be located in California.

At present, the Solar Energy Generating Systems facility in California is the largest solar power installation in the world. Several other noteworthy solar plants in the US include the Nevada Solar One, the DeSoto Next Generation Solar Energy Center, amongst others.

A detailed analysis of the emerging technologies in the solar power market in the US is undertaken in Aruvians report. Some of the technologies analyzed include carbon nanotubes, flexible solar cells, hybrid solar cells, holographics solar concentrator technology, miniature solar cells, nanowire solar cells, organic photovoltaics, and many more.

Incentives provided for solar power in the US such as federal tax credits, feed-in tariffs, state-level incentives, the Solar America Initiative, and solar renewable energy certificates are analyzed. Federal/state programs promoting solar power are also analyzed. These include the US DOE SunShot Initiative, the US DOE Solar Decathlon, the Open PV Mapping Project, amongst others.

Following on, the author analyzes the solar power market by states. Solar power in the following states is analyzed: Arizona, California, Hawaii, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, and Oregon.
