REEEP Announces Latin American Regional Sustainable Energy Policy Development Forum

The Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Partnership (REEEP) is establishing a Latin American Regional Sustainable Energy Policy Development Forum.

The development forum was officially launched at the Grid Connected Renewable Energy Policy Forum hosted by the Mexican Government.


The new project will build on the work of REEEP's Sustainable Energy Regulations Network by leveraging the outcomes of the Policy Forum by:
-assembling a comprehensive survey of regional sustainable energy policies
- identifying gaps and reform measures
- working with key stakeholders to develop results oriented strategies for critical reforms.

The initial round of policy surveys will include Mexico, Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala and Nicaragua.

For additional information on the project, contact Mark Lambrides at the OAS, +1.202.458.6261 or mlambrides@oas.

Kipp & Zonen - DustIQ the novel soiling monitoring solution for solar panels

Soiling of the panel glass is one of the major problems in the rapidly expanding solar energy market, with the attendant loss of efficiency and reduction in performance ratios. Now, there's a new, simple and very cost-effective alternative. Based on Kipp & Zonen's unique Optical Soiling Measurement (OSM) technology, DustIQ can be easily added to new or existing solar arrays and integrated into plant management systems. The unit is mounted to the frame of a PV panel and does not need sunlight to operate. It continuously measures the transmission loss through glass caused by soiling, so that the reduction in light reaching the solar cells can be calculated.
