A succinct-analysis of the increasingly widely discussed alternative and renewable energy universe serves to bring the Phoenix "Hydrogen Economy" initiative (with its REPLACEMENT energy status) into its special perspective.
Using Lean to produce renewable energy products will keep costs low, make the investment of capital more efficient, provide product in the shortest possible lead time, and ensure the continued growth of the industry. Using Lean will drive cost out of the products/processes allowing more conversion to renewable energy for every dollar spent. Some renewable energy manufacturing companies are using some Lean tools, but much more can be done to reduce the waste in manufacturing these products.
We believe that renewable energy services play to the strengths that we have developed in offering electrical and communications services to the commercial, industrial and residential markets. These renewable energy services are a very natural and logical extension of our traditional offerings.
Greg Schulte is the President and CEO of Bonfiglioli USA, one of the world's leading designers and manufacturers of gear motors, drive systems and planetary gearboxes. The company is also a primary developer of systems which integrate electronic, hydraulic and mechanical engineering. He was appointed to this position in June 2008 and oversees the Bonfiglioli Group's American subsidiary headquarters located in Hebron, Kentucky
With over two decades of engineering, marketing, sales and executive management experience in high technology, BioSolar, Inc. Chief Executive Officer Dr. David D. Lee founded the company in 2006. An electrical engineer, Lee recognized that historically, manufacturing costs have been one of the biggest barriers to driving down the cost per kilowatt of solar energy for consumers. In response, BioSolar was the first company to introduce a new dimension of cost reduction by replacing petroleum-based plastic solar cell components with durable bio-based components derived from renewable plant sources.
This article reviews the recent history of PV monitoring; the shift from single-meter systems to module-level control using highly reliable electronics, and future direction of the industry towards active system management from utility-scale solar farms down to the residential PV system.
One solar PV innovation has largely flown under the radar: pole mounted solar electric panels. That is, mounting solar PV panels on a steel pole anchored in cement, fully capable of adjusting to daily and seasonal sun positions.
Ecology and Environment Sets the Sustainability Bar Even Higher in Achieving an 80-Percent Carbon Reduction at Net Cost Savings.
How can you invest the time and money necessary to make our planet greener while your company is struggling? It's no secret that many "green" initiatives require massive capital expenditures and changes in policies by government, but is there a green solution that actually saves you money.
Condition Monitoring involves a set of activities wherein various components of the wind turbine are regularly inspected and monitored. The process gathers condition parameters of the machinery, such as lubricant condition, temperatures, vibration data and visual inspection results, on a regular or permanent basis. A minor failure in a key component of the wind turbine can cause down-time and severe losses
Constructing a solar-powered light in a jar is a great project to do with kids. It can be done at home, or in a classroom, with simple materials, and will serve to give them a good understanding of how solar energy is used.
A discussion about the future of the wind energy industry and the goal of 20% Energy from Wind by 2030
GreenGen and GoodSpring are based on the TPRI technology so they have some common traits that are unique in the industry. Record setting levels of cleanliness in acid rain causing gasses, mercury, and particulates should allow both facilities to reduce those major emissions by about 99% or greater when compared to the average coal power plant in the USA.
Lunera designs and manufactures low-profile LED lighting solutions for commercial spaces.
One of the major benefits of Community Wind projects is that they provide incremental jobs, wages and business income in communities, since ownership is retained and profits are recycled locally. In addition, the community has a significant amount of control over management of the project and there are opportunities for members of the community to have a direct financial stake in the project.
