Market for MW-scale PV-related activities to surpass 133 GW worldwide by end-2015

According to GTM's latest report released recently, Megawatt-Scale PV O&M and Asset Management 2015-2020, the total market for megawatt-scale Operation & Maintenance (O&M) and Asset Management (AM) is expected to surpass 133 GW worldwide by the end of 2015.

Megawatt-scale PV refers to installations/activities in access of 1 MW which means residential solar PV and other smaller solar farms are excluded.

The research firm further stated that total market will more than triple by 2020 to exceed 488 GW worldwide, driven predominantly by China, the U.S., India and Japan.

The research finding provides global and country-specific competitive landscape analysis, market sizing and forecasts, current and emerging trends and strategies, as well as service scope and price levels for a variety of plant sizes.

It also provides profile of 57 vendors in the O&M and Asset Management space including services offered, in/out-sourcing policies and fleet size by key country.

Comprehensive geographical coverage 

With every major markets being covered in the research, there's a fair chance that you would get an informed decision in your renewable energy projects, in particular solar PV. The report is available for a fee but for the industry players, this should be considered as small cost to doing business. As for the rest of us readers, we'll have to be contented with just the bits and pieces of information released by GTM later (probably, with no time frame).

Markets covered includes Brazil, Canada, Chile, China, France, Germany, India, Italy, Japan, Mexico, South Africa, Spain, Thailand, United Kingdom, and United States.

The Green Mechanics: If I were to be a member of the management team of SEDA Malaysia, I would strongly recommend that we get a copy of the report.

My wish is to become a smart phone

Received this and I tought I should share it for this generation and for the generation to come. Read and see what you make of it. Nothing was changed from the original text.

Sad but true

A teacher after the dinner she started checking homework done by the students. Her husband is strolling around with a smart phone playing his favourite game 'Candy Crush Saga'.

When reading the last note, the wife starts crying with silent tears.

Her husband saw this and asked, 'Why are you crying dear?

What happened?'

Wife: 'Yesterday I gave homework to my 1st Standard students, to write something on topic -My Wish-.

'Husband: 'OK, but why are you crying?

'Wife: 'Today while checking the last note, it makes me cry.

'Husband curiously: 'What's written in the note that makes you cry?

'Wife: 'Listen'

My wish is to become a smart phone.

My parents love smart phone very much.

They care for smart phone so much that sometimes they forget to care for me.When my father comes from office tired, he has time for smart phone but not for me.

When my parents are doing some important work and smart phone is ringing, within single ring they attend to the phone, but not me even...even if I am crying.

They play games on their smart phones not with me.When they are talking to someone on their smart phone, they never listen to me even if I am telling something important.

So, My wish is to become a smart phone.

After listening the note husband got emotional and asked the wife, 'who wrote this?'.

Wife: 'Our son'.

Gadgets are beneficial, but they are for our ease not to cease the love amongst family and loved ones.

Children see and feel everything what happens with & around them. Things get imprinted on their mind with an everlasting effect. Let's take due care, so that they do not grow with any false impressions.
