Global Wind Energy Installed Capacity to Reach 1,062 Thousand Megawatts by 2017, According to New Report by Global Industry Analysts, Inc.

GIA announces the release of a comprehensive global report on the wind energy markets. The global installed capacity of wind energy is forecast to reach 1,062 thousand megawatt by the year 2017. Major factors driving growth in the global wind energy market include depleting natural resources, volatile crude oil prices, concerns on climate change, and rising demand for energy worldwide. Growth in the global market would be led by developing regions, primarily Asia-Pacific, with China and India increasingly becoming power hungry, driven by the rising energy needs in these countries in tandem with the increasing economic growth. The uncertainty and unrest in the energy sector, rapidly depleting natural resources, together with the political pressures and environmental issues, are shedding the light on the rapidly evolving role of clean technologies, such as wind power.

Kipp & Zonen - DustIQ the novel soiling monitoring solution for solar panels

Kipp & Zonen - DustIQ the novel soiling monitoring solution for solar panels

Soiling of the panel glass is one of the major problems in the rapidly expanding solar energy market, with the attendant loss of efficiency and reduction in performance ratios. Now, there's a new, simple and very cost-effective alternative. Based on Kipp & Zonen's unique Optical Soiling Measurement (OSM) technology, DustIQ can be easily added to new or existing solar arrays and integrated into plant management systems. The unit is mounted to the frame of a PV panel and does not need sunlight to operate. It continuously measures the transmission loss through glass caused by soiling, so that the reduction in light reaching the solar cells can be calculated.
