Global Wind And Solar Costs To Fall Even Faster, While Coal Fades Even In China And India

This year's forecast from BNEF sees solar energy costs dropping a further 66% by 2040, and onshore wind by 47%, with renewables undercutting the majority of existing fossil power stations by 2030

Why Design Matters for Solar O&M

When evaluating SATs, I want to consider whether the failure of any individual hardware component could threaten the system's overall production. In the case of a decentralized SAT, for example, each row's independent motor is powered by its own dedicated solar panel (with integrated battery backup), making external power cables obsolete.

3 Ways to Prevent a Solavalanche

Because the face of solar panels are fabricated from glass, there's no surface area/friction for snow to grip onto, and nothing to stop it from building up, eventually releasing in an avalanche manner, in the form of what we Alpine-ites like to refer to as a solavalanche.

Energy storage and renewables beyond wind, hydro, solar make up 4% of U.S. power capacity

California leads the United States in capacity of several categories: hydroelectric pumped storage, geothermal, landfill gas, and batteries. Florida leads the country in capacity of municipal solid waste and other waste biomass generators.

Clean-technology Incubator Program Expands Focus Beyond Commercial Buildings

The Innovation Incubator (IN2) is now a $30 million program supporting a technology incubator and provides a platform to support early-stage clean tech startup companies to overcome market gaps by providing access to both technical assistance and project support funding.

The Future of District Heating

Perhaps one of the primary reasons for district heating systems not being as efficient as they should be is due to a lack of access to data. Effectively, designers specify systems without using any operational data to help inform their decisions.

Talking Intersolar with Bryan Whitton, Darfon Solar

Darfon will be introducing 5 new products this year: H5000, H100, H200, G640 and ComBox. The H5000, our latest hybrid inverter, converts DC power from the PV modules or batteries into AC. Based upon programmed priorities easily set up by the installer, batteries are charged from either the PV array or grid.

U.S. Solar Market Adds 2 Gigawatts of PV in Q1 2017

Utility-scale solar prices fall below $1/watt for first time; capacity expected to triple over next five years.

The Future of Residential Home Energy Storage

With the market growing so rapidly, consumers need to understand which product best suits their household's energy needs. Again, the key is starting with a customer's energy usage and determining how they will use an energy storage system.

CETYS University Renewable Energy Engineering Program in Mexico

The Renewable Energy Engineering Program began in 2015 due to the potential demand that is expected for these types of professionals and the opportunity for development (a growing trend) provided by Baja California, the California region in general (USA) and Baja California Sur (Mexico).

Target's Latest Solar Installations

In states like California and Massachusetts at least half of all Target stores there will have solar panels by the end of 2017. In California, 150 of our 287 stores will have solar installations by the end of the year.

Talking Intersolar with Denise Hugo, Array Technologies, Inc.

For the first time at Intersolar Europe, Array Technologies' booth will feature our latest DuraTrack HZ v3, which is a 2017 Intersolar AWARD Technology finalist. Visitors can see a full-scale demonstration that will be actively tracking throughout the show.

Talking Intersolar with Jared Wiener, SolarRoofHook

We are introducing a few new products this year. For Asphalt Shingle Roofs, we have a new Low Profile QuickBOLT that simplifies the installation process by removing the height adjustable nature of the original QuickBOLT. We have a new hook for Stone Coated Steel Roofs, as more installers have found customer opportunities with this type of roof. Visit us at Intersolar Booth #9645

Renewable Energy in Mexico - MIREC WEEK

What we are seeing is that the Mexican government and its regulatory and policymaking bodies are listening to the stakeholders in Mexico's renewable energy space and they have been tweaking and updating the reforms accordingly.

How Virtual Power Purchase Agreements (VPPAs) are Solving the Corporate Energy "Trilemma"

In a VPPA, the electricity that's produced is sold into the local grid while the corporate offtaker receives credit for the renewable energy to address the emissions from the electricity consumption from traditional sources.
