 The U.S. Solar Market Insight report for the first quarter (Q1) of 2015 shows that the U.S. solar market had a strong first quarter in 2015, with 1,306 MWdc of installations across the country. According to the report, Q1 was a rather slow quarter for solar installations, for a variety of reasons, ranging from weather to accounting and tax purposes. That was true in both the non-residential and utility solar markets this year; on the contrary, residential market saw no such decline and instead grew 11% over the last quarter of 2014, to have its largest quarter ever.

Retrofitting a district is quite different from retrofitting a single building as the technological challenges involved are far greater.The Cuarto de Marzo district of Valladolid, Spain is an area spreading over 21,000 square metres with 166 residences. It is now the focus of a retrofitting project called R2CITIES which is funded by the EU. Its objective: a 60% reduction in energy consumption in individual buildings and the district as a whole.
