From the NY Times:
TOKYO — Japan is poised to overtake Italy and become the world’s second-biggest market for solar power, as incentives starting July 1 propel sales. It could eventually top Germany, which holds the No. 1 spot.Industry Minister Yukio Edano on Monday set a price for solar electricity that is about triple what industrial users now pay for conventional power. That may drive at least $9.6 billion in new installations with 3.2 gigawatts of capacity, Bloomberg New Energy Finance forecast. That is about equal to the output of three atomic reactors.
Interesting graph from RISI
Awesome to see this starting to happen in other areas of government...I knew it wouldn't be long! CDC had similar figures from our hybrid event last year. We saved a ton of money as well and had 1875 participants, reporting a near 100% satisfaction rating! Rough estimates for carbon footprint savings: 1,098,808 lbs (using the terrapass.com Event Carbon Calculator).
Rough estimate on how much our virtual-only attendees would have spent if they would have come to the in-person event instead: $779,507. .
The Forest Service just saved $1 million by hosting a virtual conference - and they achieved 96% participate rates - definitely a model to replicate in other organizations:
