It is clear the PV industry has done a much better job communicating solar electric. I understand the various industry associations recognize this confusion. I hope we see more of the consumer marketing aimed not just at solar thermal but explaining the differences and how a dual energy system is another good option to leverage their solar investment.
In July 2009, SGS was assigned a contract to carry out Quality, Health, Safety and Environmental (QHSE) Management for the Belwind Bligh Bank Offshore Wind Farm in Belgium. SGS provides QHSE Management activities during the design, manufacturing and installation phases of the wind farm project in order to assure high quality standards and a safe project execution.
"Tennessee Valley Authority does away with solar subsidy." Would any businessman who knew that his obsolescence was imminent not do likewise?
Air transfer makes solar thermal power more reliable than ever.
PV-T, which is hybrid Photovoltaic and Thermal collector, production of both electricity and hot water is done simultaneously. The PV module's heat is absorbed to produce hot water so that PV efficiency can be optimized as the heat is transferred into fluid to produce hot water.
This project is a win-win for the County, not only in terms of monetary savings, but also by establishing the County of Bergen as a role model for other counties and municipalities in the state to adopt renewables and implement clean energy practices.
Alanod-Solar is the world's largest manufacturer of high selective absorbing surfaces for solar hot water and commercial process heat + high reflecting aluminum mirrors for CPV, CSP, and combined heat and power.
Few people realize what a huge impact several hundred thousand solar water heaters can have on a country's energy demand. Thermal solar (heating water) is a sensible and efficient way to avoid the expense and potential danger of nuclear plants. Hot water is always needed and solar energy is the best method to meet those demands. Since thermal solar heats our oceans, isn't it about time we utilize the proven technology of solar water heaters?
The endless pursuit of solar energy as a realistic alternative energy source to fossil fuel shows no signs of waning; which is not only good news for businesses and consumers, but also great news for investors as well. Never underestimate the power of technology.
Sonterra Apartment Homes is the largest apartment community in Austin to purchase 100% renewable energy.
Favorable policies and regulations drive growth in The Region.
Of course, the situation for each business is different but considering renewable energy resources as part of a comprehensive disaster plan should also be part of the discussion.
Once Imagine Energy identified the hurdles to increasing their efficiency, they were able identify specific solutions. Imagine Energy has successfully finished the first two phases of the residential installations. The 3rd phase, which includes 75-100 households, is set to commence shortly. The entire project is estimated to be completed in a total of 18 months.
A green building, also known as a sustainable building, is a structure that is designed, built, renovated, operated, or reused in an ecological and resource-efficient manner.
A new report from Fuel Cells 2000, "The Business Case for Fuel Cells: Why Top Companies are Purchasing Fuel Cells Today", highlights 38 nationally recognized companies that are installing fuel cells.

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.
