  1. What will capture the renewable energy market: wind or solar? - Saturday Breakfast RN - 7 May 2011

    In Australia it feels natural to look to the skies for our renewable energy needs. We are, after all, the ‘sunburnt country’. But in the race to capture the renewable energy market, it’s been wind, not solar, at the front of the race. Now solar is back in the game in a serious way. So what will be the future of clean energy in Australia? Wind or solar?

  2. CENHS @ Rice! » 183 – Solar Power, Solar Justice (feat. Dustin Mulvaney)

    Cymene and Dominic cover the stress (and joy!) of center directorships and sandwich-making on this week’s podcast. Then (13:53) Dustin Mulvaney ( visits the pod to tell us all the things we need to know about solar energy but were afraid to ask. He’s the author of the excellent new book, Solar Power: Innovation, Sustainability and Environmental Justice(U California Press, 2019). We start by talking about whether it’s possible to make a solar power revolution both rapid and just. That gets us to the toxic externalities of solar cell manufacture and his work with the Silicon Valley Toxics Coalition ( to create a Solar Scorecard system that helps pressure manufacturers to clean up their production processes. Dustin breaks down for us the environmental advantages and disadvantages of both photovoltaic (PV) and concentrated solar (CSP) systems and then we turn to what he calls the “Green Civil War” brewing between animal rights activists and renewable energy activists over land use changes especially in the American Southwest. In closing we discuss whether a radically decentralized energy ecology could help advance environmental justice goals and what lessons should be learned from Obama era ARRA solar investments in terms of improving energy justice in the future.
