CPV and storage solutions to be discussed at CPV USA 2012

At CPV USA 2012, Innovation Core SEI (a U.S. subsidiary of Sumitomo Electric Industries) will discuss the potential for Concentrated Photovoltaic technology to work with storage and EMS integrated systems.

In July, Sumitomo Electric Industries commenced operation of a megawatt-class electric power generation/storage system on the premises of its Yokohama Works. The system consists of the world's largest redox flow battery and Japan's largest CPV units.


In a presentation given at CPV USA 2012 (15-16 October, San Jose, CA) the company will discuss this game changer for the industry and how these solutions will give CPV a competitive edge over its rivals.

Matt Katayama, President of Innovation Core SEI: "We are very excited about our development of such an integrated energy system, and are dedicated to further contribute to the world with a greener and smarter energy solution!"

Event organizer Matt Carr said that "PV Insider are delighted to announce the addition of Sumitomo Electric Industries to the incredible speaker line-up at this year's CPV USA conference. The development of innovative storage solutions can only enhance the technology's bankability – and CPV USA attendees will be able to get more detail at the conference."

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.
