Statement issued by the World Energy Council on 9 October 2016 ahead of the 23rd World Energy Congress
For energy traders and utilities, profitability in this complex and evolving market requires a full and complete picture of assets, operations, positions and risk exposures. Too many utilities are still labouring under a painful burden of data management challenges, including lack of automation, multiple disparate systems and data formats.
Valuable Lessons in Co-existence
In Part I of this blog post Eric Every, Yaskawa - Solectria Senior Applications Engineer, explores cases in which PV system designers should use Y-connectors, what the code implications may be, how they may be used with internal inverter combiners.
The floor team knows what to ask visitors and how to present our value to them. And for the most part, visitors are receptive and give us quite a positive response.
This series will focus on these questions in the area of transmission planning (regional load forecasting and solutions to identified grid needs), wholesale market design, and facilitation of utility business model reform.
High Tech High Chula Vista strives to empower its students to ask the big questions and make big changes in the world. Climate change is one of the most pressing issues in our world, making solar energy one of the most effective responses that HTHCV has at its disposal.
A major advantage that bio-inspired batteries have as compared to other batteries is their ability to allow an instant recharge.
Researchers at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory are using multiphysics simulation to better understand and optimize the conversion process for plant-derived biofuels.
Experts anticipate cost reductions of 24%-30% by 2030 and 35%-41% by 2050, under a median or 'best guess' scenario, driven by bigger and more efficient turbines, lower capital and operating costs, and other advancements
In the last ten years, the installed global solar energy capacity has multiplied nearly 50 times. The cost of purchasing and installing a solar panel has decreased by 80 percent in five years and is still falling. The comparable cost of electricity generation has made solar energy the cheapest energy source today, from being the most expensive only six years ago. This is truly a green revolution.
Winners Announced at Awards Ceremony at Solar Power International
The efficiency gain equals to approximately $2.5M additional energy being produced over a 100MW power plant's lifetime, on average at the global level.
If storage costs can demonstrate price reductions comparable to what we've experienced with wind and solar, storage will be a big part of the story.

The Darfon G320 is the microinverter solution for today's high-power solar modules. The G320 handles 60- and 72-cell modules up to 350W DC and outputs up to 300W AC. The G320's 3-phase configuration accommodates the electrical distribution systems of most commercial buildings and to reduce, if not eliminate, the need for expensive transformers. The G320 comes in four voltage/phase configurations, so it can be installed in residential, commercial or utility applications.
