NRG Systems Introduces Complete Solar Resource Assessment System


Hinesburg, VT (USA)—NRG Systems, leading manufacturer of wind measurement equipment for the global wind industry, has brought its product leadership and technical expertise to the solar industry with the introduction of a complete solar resource assessment system. Like its complete measurement systems developed for wind measurement, the NRG Systems solar resource assessment system includes tower, sensors, data logger and communications module—everything a developer needs to assess a site's solar potential.

"Customers who have relied on us for our complete wind measurement systems asked us for a solar resource solution, and we knew we could deliver," said David Simkins, NRG Systems' business development. "This system is built with the same reliable SymphoniePLUS® data logger platform but includes everything needed for solar resource assessment."

The low cost, off-grid system is easy to transport and install, making it ideal for multiple deployments.

"As with our other measurement systems, integrated system components make installation and connection easy," added Simkins. "This system will provide the bankable data and peace of mind that developers are looking for."

"We've taken our 29 years of wind measurement experience and have tailored a complete resource assessment system specifically for solar photovoltaic project development," said Jan Blittersdorf, CEO/president of NRG Systems. "It's exciting for us to introduce our resource assessment knowledge and product platform to a new segment of the renewable energy industry."

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.
