La Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec présente cet 18 octobre 2017 sa stratégie d’investissement face au défi climatique. « …Nous sommes fixés à la fois comme cible à court terme d’augmenter nos investissements de plus de 8 milliards de dollars dans les actifs sobres en carbone, et à moyen terme de réduire notre empreinte carbone de 25 % par dollar investi…. »
D’ici jusqu’au 2025, 100 % de l’électricité consommée dans les installations de Services publics et Approvisionnement Canada – le propriétaire principal des immeubles gouvernementaux – proviendra de sources d’énergie verte.
Plan quinquennal de l’Ontario pour combattre le changement climatique, réduire la pollution attribuable aux émissions de gaz à effet de serre et effectuer la transition vers une économie sobre en carbone.
On April 6th, 2016, the IEA-PVPS (International Energy Agency – Photovoltaic Power Systems Program) announced that, in total, 227 GW of PV installations are producing more than 1.3% of the electricity demand in the world while the 2015 market reached at least 49 GW.
Combined the IEA-PVPS reporting countries had 197 GW of cumulative PV installations, mostly grid-connected, at the end of 2015 with 227 GW installed globally. Additional countries that are not part of the PVPS program represented the 30 additional GW.
The story of the last 10 years explains what happened in the PV sector. The introduction of the feed-in tariffs in Germany allowed the industry to move from a niche market to an industrial-size market. Policies that may have been negatively perceived have led to the boom of PV in many countries. The market moved rapidly from 1.4 GW in 2005 to 16.6 GW in 2010 and 50 GW in 2015. OECD countries and in particular European ones, Japan and the USA contributed significantly to PV development over the last decade. The Asia-Pacific region represented around 59% of the global PV market in 2015 and is the first ranking region for the third year in a row. Europe ’s market share fell again to 18%, despite a growth in absolute terms. The PV market in the Americas continued to grow with the USA , Canada and Chile leading the pace, ahead of several new markets. The Middle East had many project announcements and set up some installations, while the African market declined. Still, the most important element was witnessed again in China with its market progressing to 15.3 GW. The second largest market was Japan with 11 GW in 2015, ahead of the European Union and the USA with more than 7 GW each. India , with 2 GW appears to be the rising star in the PV sector.
In 22 countries, the annual PV contribution to electricity demand has passed the 1% mark, with Italy at the top of the list at around 8%, followed by Greece at 7,4% and Germany at 7,1%. The overall global PV contribution amounts to around 1.3% of the world’s electricity demand.
Finally, PV has become a major source of electricity at an extremely rapid pace in several countries all over the world. The speed of its development stems from its unique ability to cover most market segments; from the very small individual systems for rural electrification to utility-size power plants (today over 750 MWp).
Le Ministère est heureux d’annoncer la relance du programme ÉcoPerformance en date du 21 octobre 2015.
Le programme ÉcoPerformance est le résultat de la fusion de cinq programmes, dont le Programme d’aide à l’implantation de mesures efficaces dans les bâtiments et le Programme de réduction de la consommation du mazout lourd.
Si votre bâtiment utilise le gaz naturel, le propane ou mazout aux fins de chauffage, envisagez d'utiliser un système de chauffage solaire de l'air MatrixAir® et le programme EcoPerformance ™ pour réduire vos émissions de gaz à effet de serre ou de la consommation d'énergie dans vos bâtiments.

As Thomas Edison presciently pointed out to Henry Ford and Harvey Firestone in 1931, “We are like tenant farmers chopping down the fence around our house for fuel when we should be using nature’s inexhaustible sources of energy - sun, wind and tide. I’d put my money on the sun and solar energy. What a source of power! I hope we don’t have to wait until oil and coal run out before we tackle that.”

The 2014 edition of Solar Heat Worldwide produced by the International Energy Association provides a status report of the solar thermal industry comprising solar thermal market data from 58 countries covering an estimated 95% of the worldwide market from 2012.
In this report total cumulative installed capacity in operation worldwide by the end of 2012 was 269.3 GWth, corresponding to a total of 384.7 million square meters of collector area was in operation. The vast majority of the total capacity in operation was installed in China (180.4 GWth) and Europe (42.8 GWth), which together account for 83% of the total installed. The remaining installed capacity was shared between the United States and Canada (17.2 GWth).
The breakdown of the cumulated capacity in operation in 2012 by collector type is 26.4% glazed flat-plate collectors, 64.6% evacuated tube collectors, 8.4% unglazed water collectors, and 0.6% glazed and unglazed air collectors, such as those produced by Matrix Energy Inc.
In the year 2012, a capacity of 52.7 GWth, corresponding to 75.3 million square meters of solar collectors, was installed worldwide. This means an increase in new collector installations of 9.4% compared to the year 2011. The main markets were in China (44.7 GWth) and Europe (3.7 GWth), which together accounted for 92% of the new collector installations in 2012 with Canada installing a mere 0.8 GWth. The breakdown of the newly installed capacity in 2012 by collector type is 15.9% glazed flat-plate collectors, 81.0% evacuated tube collectors, 3.0% unglazed water collectors and 0.2% glazed and unglazed air collectors

The Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) recently stated that, “According to new industry data, a growing sector of the U.S. solar energy industry has reached a major new milestone, with 5 million square feet of building-integrated solar air heating collectors now installed in North America . These systems represent 250 megawatts (MW) of thermal energy and displace nearly 100,000 tons of CO2 each year from the atmosphere.”
Unfortunately, building-integrated solar air heating systems are often overlooked in the discussion about renewable energy. It’s time to change that mindset. These cost-effective, energy-efficient systems can reduce by 20 to 50 percent the amount of conventional energy used for heating buildings.
, such as those produced by Matrix Energy’s MatrixAir™ systems, work by heating incoming ventilation air before it is brought into a building’s HVAC system, using wall or roof mounted collectors that are typically made of metal and have 30-plus year lifespans.
By SEIA estimates, more than over the next 30 years by expanding the use of such solar thermal systems across the United States. Matrix Energy conservatively estimates Canada would generate 10,000 similar jobs resulting in $12 billion in energy savings over this same period given our higher demand for heating. Today, approximately 44 percent of all North American energy consumption is attributable to heating and cooling. According to BEAM Engineering, a Boston-based energy consulting firm, solar air heating is the most efficient renewable technology for generating thermal heat and costs are as low as 6 cents per kilowatt (kWh) hour.
