* U.S. state and federal programs that Chinese companies can utilize to invest in renewable energy;
* The requirements for original equipment manufacturer (OEM) market entrants to obtain and deploy financing in the U.S. market;
* Details on how information technology is being used to economically and reliably integrate variable renewable generation into the U.S. grid;
* China's recently enacted feed-in-tariff for photovoltaic development and its implications for the solar industry;
* An overview of the developments and challenges faced by China's booming wind industry as it matures;
* An overview of China's solar photovoltaic and biofuels supply chains; and
* Sub-national government collaboration between the U.S. and China and a listing of significant collaborations between U.S. and Chinese companies.

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

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.
