The Guardian: On a sunny October morning, our boat passes the run-down relicts of Liverpool’s maritime past and heads down the river Mersey and into the Irish Sea. As we steam offshore, I see in the distance a cluster of tall structures that soon reveal themselves to be towers of a wind turbine array. Arriving at the windfarm, six miles offshore, the turbines rise as high as 650ft, taller than the tallest church in the world. Each of the turbines’ three shiny metallic rotor blades is nearly 300ft long. “A single rotation of an eight-megawatt turbine will cover the daily electricity consumption of an average British household,” says Benj Sykes, vice president of Dong Energy Wind Power, the company that is constructing and co-owns this wind project, as the boat rocks in five-foot swells.

Three-year Project to Develop New State Solar Plans and Programs
As the first US wind farm connects to the grid, Natural Power will be attending AWEA's Offshore WINDPOWER conference from 25th to 26th October in the Crown Plaza Hotel Providence-Warwick, Warwick, Rhode Island.
As this result shows that the combination of two PV technologies can outperform the power generation of single junctions the significance of this result shouldn't be underestimated as it breaks the current limitations of solar technology and shows that higher performing modules can be expected to become part of the energy system ...

After a long streak of losses, solar panel prices eventually stabilize this week. Major module manufacturers have been squeezed by the rapidly increasing prices of cells and wafers so as to leave the solar panel prices unchanged, although they are actually planning to adjust their prices upwards, particularly in the regions where solar panel prices were mostly suppressed, such as China and India. Although the demand improves globally, it is still fragile. As a result of a mild demand recovery, major module makers hesitate to raise the prices immediately, leading the solar panel prices to stabilize this week.
The grid is undergoing a revolution due to the introduction of new energy resources like solar & wind. In order to gain control of these resources and maintain supply & demand of electricity, utilities need to radically increase the number of grid control points while minimizing security vulnerabilities presented by automation & interconnectivity.
8minutenergy Initiates Development Platform Capital Raise and Investment Opportunity into Over 500 MW of Projects With Long Term PPAs and $1 Billion Enterprise Value

The Indian solar market is experiencing strong growth, bringing it ever closer to the Indian government's goal of increasing the installed photovoltaic (PV) capacity to 100 gigawatts (GW) by 2022. Against the backdrop of this progress, Intersolar India opened today in the Bombay Exhibition Center in Mumbai. Over 230 exhibitors are presenting their products, services and solutions for the solar industry until October 21. The exhibition is accompanied by the Intersolar India Conference, where the Indian solar market and private roof-mounted installations are the center of attention.

Solar & Wind - Featured Product
The GreenFasten™ - GF1 system utilizes the patented watertight technology EcoFasten Solar® is known for. The flashing is fit with our EPDM rubber bushing and when used with a compatible EcoFasten Solar compression bracket (milled with countersink), a watertight seal is created, which protects the integrity of the roof. Requiring just a single fastener (lag bolt or self-drilling), GreenFasten provides the fastest install in the industry and will not void roofing manufacturer's warranties. Backed by IAPMO certification, GreenFasten delivers a mounting solution for all new or existing (retrofit) composition shingle roofs, and is the most cost-effective solution available. Like all of the solar roof mount solutions in our line of products, GreenFasten is made in the USA using recycled materials.
