10 Things Every Solar Company Should Know in 2010

Renewable Energy companies need Public Relations (PR) for several reasons. The following are the top 10 things I believe every RE company should be aware of in 2010. Remember, the solar industry is still a nascent industry just at the beginning of its steep growth curve. But general awareness of solar and other renewables and their benefits is very low among the general public. The industry needs to educate and communicate with the American public so they better understand renewables and the bright future they can bring to our world.

The Promise and Pitfalls of "Solar as a Service"

By offering a means to install a solar power system without the initial capital, Power Purchase Agreements could be the Holy Grail for mass market adoption of solar. After being a major driver of solar installations over the last couple years, however, a number of obstacles still stand in their way. What makes these instruments so attractive?

Key trends and growth opportunities up to 2015.

Significant Legal Issues For Landowners And Operators Of Wind Projects

Significant issues for the operator may include the operator's right to enter onto the land and monitor the land for wind potential before an agreement is executed with the landowner. This right is typically set forth in an option granted to the operator for a period lasting anywhere from two to ten years, in exchange for a fee paid to the landowner, allowing the operator adequate time to carry out a wind study to ascertain whether the land is a good candidate for a wind project.

How Improvements in Thin-Film Silicon PV Will Keep it Alive in the Marketplace

Resetting the Clock: RPS and Realizing Energy Independence

The most pressing questions surrounding energy policy now are: 1) How do we reach these goals? And 2) Are they even attainable? Advocates from both sides of the aisle and in many industries, such as wind, solar, biomass, nuclear, and even domestically sourced natural gas and clean coal, have all thrown their hats in the ring professing that their technological approach is the way to go if there is any hope of truly changing the energy landscape.

Wind Powered Engines And The Elusive 59% Efficiency

Images of the 3 bladed wind engines are now seen everywhere and they have come to symbolize intelligent energy creation for virtually everyone but are these designs actually the most efficient ones possible? No one seems to know their efficiency so that vital issue is completely overlooked and rarely discussed. Efficiency is important to all.

Geothermal Heat Pumps: Heating & Cooling of America

Greenhouse gas & energy are major problems for the future of America and Geothermal heat pumps are a great form of alternative energy has been around for over 30 years. Below are some facts about geothermal that you need to know.

Considerations in Fuel Cell Voltage Monitoring

Knowing what's happening inside a fuel cell is a critical function, especially as fuel cells are continuing to be developed. One important aspect of this is to measure the voltage of each cell in a stack. Although this may sound trivial, it can be more complex and more expensive than it may at first appear due to high voltages, high channel counts, communication types, etc. There are a few products commercially available that are designed specifically for fuel cell voltage monitoring.

Wind energy: Why is project certification so important?

What can you do as an investor to protect your wind farm investment? What can you do as a wind farm owner to secure your wind power production? How can the trust of insurance companies for wind farm projects be improved? The solution is to find an independent inspection, testing and verification company that combines technical consultancy with project certification.
