New study reveals widespread risk of infectious diseases to wild bees
(Royal Holloway, University of London) Researchers have discovered a network of viruses, which were previously associated with managed honeybees, may now pose a widespread risk to bumblebees in the wild, according to a new study published Wednesday, March 4, in the Journal of Animal Ecology.

Women in business

Real estate bidding wars aren't going away
(University of Toronto, Rotman School of Management) Frenzy, frustration and disappointment are what home buyers have come to dread about real estate bidding wars. They'd better get used to it, suggests a new study. Once a rarity -- representing between 3 and 4 per cent -- homes sold through bidding wars tripled their market share during the real estate boom between 1995 and 2005, says the paper by two professors at the University of Toronto's Rotman School of Management.

The F-word you need more of at work -- or get fired
(University of Waterloo) Leadership has boomed into it's own industry. The US alone spends over $14 billion a year on it; you can get a Ph.D. in it; and we promote it to kids as the way to get ahead in life. But new research from a University of Waterloo professor and his wife reveals there might be something most employees are overlooking and, if you don't do it well, will probably get you fired.

Researchers find 3-D printed parts provide low-cost, custom alternatives for lab equipment
(DOE/Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory) Article describes experiments showing that 3-D printed parts work well for laboratory use.

NREL science crucial to success of new biofuels plants
(DOE/National Renewable Energy Laboratory) The Energy Department's National Renewable Energy Laboratory played crucial roles in the technology that has led companies DuPont, POET, and Abengoa to open commercial-scale facilities to turn biomass into clean transportation fuels.

NREL takes first in-depth look at solar project completion timelines
(DOE/National Renewable Energy Laboratory) The Energy Department's National Renewable Energy Laboratory has gathered and analyzed data for more than 30,000 solar photovoltaic installations across the United States to better understand how interconnection regulations align with actual project completion timelines. The findings indicate that interconnection process delays are common, and can range from several days to months. Streamlining the application review and final authorization processes can ultimately benefit utilities and solar consumers by reducing the time and cost associated with going solar.

NREL releases the 2013 Renewable Energy Data Book, detailing increases in installed capacity
(DOE/National Renewable Energy Laboratory) The newly released 2013 Renewable Energy Data Book illustrates United States and global energy statistics, including renewable electricity generation, renewable energy development, clean energy investments, and technology-specific data and trends. The Data Book is produced and published annually by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory on behalf of the Energy Department's Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy.

NREL reports examine economic trade-offs of owning vs. leasing a solar photovoltaic system
(DOE/National Renewable Energy Laboratory) Two new reports from the Energy Department's National Renewable Energy Laboratory examine the economic options customers face when deciding how to finance commercial or residential solar energy systems. NREL analysts found that businesses that use low-cost financing to purchase a photovoltaic (PV) system and homeowners who use solar-specific loans can save up to 30 percent compared with consumers who lease a PV system through a conventional third-party owner.

New incubator network to help clean-energy entrepreneurs
(DOE/National Renewable Energy Laboratory) The Energy Department's National Renewable Energy Laboratory and the Electric Power Research Institute have launched the Clean Energy Incubator Network. The program, funded by the Energy Department, aims to improve the performance of clean energy business incubators, connect critical industry and energy sector partners, and advance clean energy technologies emerging from universities and federal laboratories.
