Distributed Generation (DG) Technologies

Distributed Generation (DG) technologies have the potential to increase the reliability and quality of worldwide power in the coming decade but need continued active support from the US government.

Distributed Generation (DG) technologies have the potential to increase

the reliability and quality of worldwide power in the coming decade but
need continued active support from the US government. More efficient use
of energy resources will contribute to securing flexible power and help
the US achieve energy independence, according to "Distributed
Generation: Global Market Analysis, Technology Assessment and Outlook",
a new report from Allied Business Intelligence (ABI).

The incumbent technologies for DG applications are reciprocating
engines, and small gas turbines. ABI's market study analyzes emerging DG
technologies from fuel cells to microturbines, to wind turbines. The
study forecasts regional and technological growth for DG technologies
from a global perspective. Summary discussions are provided of the
current regulatory practices, tax practices, environmental regulations,
and business considerations effecting the present and future uptake of
DG technologies. A detailed analysis of worldwide market segmentation
and forecasts for DG is included.

WS510 Secondary Standard

WS510 Secondary Standard

In the monitoring of large photovoltaic (Utility Scale), in assessing potential sites (Solar-assessment), or in up and coming electricity cost saving initiatives projects (Commercial & Industrial), the WS510 now provides the market a secondary standard pyranometer, ultrasonic wind speed, ultrasonic wind direction, temperature, pressure and humidity all in a single unit.. This sensor meets the high demands of the world meteorological organization (WMO) through the active valving at air temperature measurement and the inertia- and maintenance-free measurement of wind speed and wind direction on the ultrasonic principle. Equipped with a Kipp & Zonen pyranometer of the secondary standards, the WS510-UMB Compact weather sensor from Lufft unites the precision of a variety of meteorological individual sensors in a single all-in-one device, for the first time.
