Heliostats are the component with the greatest impact on the cost in solar tower CSP installations, assuming 50% of the total investment. In the last years, there have been serious attempts to reduce cost by relaxing some features. The TITAN TRACKER concept achieves the goal of reducing cost offering higher performance than the rest of heliostats.

TÜV Rheinland PTL to Reveal Photovoltaic Module Reliability and Performance at SolarTech Symposium
REC Solar, Inc. and Tigo Energy™ jointly announced today that the two companies have reached a development agreement to offer the Tigo Energy Maximizer® Solution as part of REC Solar's commercial and residential installations throughout the United States.
The main aim is to develop products or methods to harness the largely untapped Ocean and Geothermal Energies. However, there is no restriction whatsoever. Innovations are also invited in any other form of renewable/clean energy or improvement in existing products and methods.
The inaugural LowCVP Low Carbon Champion Awards recognise best practice in vehicle manufacturers, fuel suppliers, fleet operators and developers of products and services that reduce greenhouse gases from the road transport sector.
Yokogawa Electric Corporation announces the July 1 release of the HXS10 controller. This new product controls the actuation systems that move heliostats and photovoltaic panels. The HXS10 helps maximize power generating efficiency by controlling the angles of heliostats and solar panels.
Fluid Imaging Technologies, Inc. of Yarmouth, Maine, USA, is collaborating with Lone Star Biotechnology Institute, part of the Lone Star Community College in Texas, on the college's algae-to-biofuel research program.Fluid Imaging is providing a FlowCAM® imaging particle analysis instrument to the institute's algae research program which will permit them to accurately monitor algae growth in a bioreactor.
SET-Solar Corporation, a US-based solar energy solutions provider, announced today that it will attend the Intersolar North America Conference from July 13-15, 2010 at the Moscone West Convention Center in San Francisco, California. SET-Solar will exhibit its solar solution products.
IPVEA is working with EU PVSEC to present the "PV Production Forum 2010" for PV manufacturing technologies at the 25th EU PVSEC and 5th World Conference on Photovoltaic Energy Conversion (WCPEC-5) on September 7, in Vaencia,Spain.
Strengthened tax credit will create more jobs, regain American leadership in solar manufacturing
The performance of crystalline silicon - widely considered a reliable solar module construction - declines amid rising temperatures of rooftop modules, according to studies performed by TÜV Rheinland PTL, LLC, a member of the world's largest solar and photovoltaic testing network.
The Dice House looks like part of a Monopoly set, but the design has real-world ambitions. The 30-by-30-by-30-foot concept home, designed by the British architecture firm Sybarite, improves on standard building tech to erase its carbon footprint. The centerpiece is a photovoltaic umbrella dome that collects roughly 90 percent of the house’s energy needs. Made of a common plastic, the pillowy dome traps heat like a greenhouse. That hot air warms water in a tank tucked under the roof, turning out a daily average of 80 bath-ready gallons, even on the darkest days of December. At the umbrella’s apex, a generator-equipped turbine produces electricity and, in chilly months, drives heat into the house. Photovoltaic cells studding the 484-square-foot dome floor create additional electricity. Generating an estimated average of 33 kilowatt-hours per day, the house can power itself and charge a Tesla Roadster.

The SolarEdge PV inverter combines sophisticated digital control technology with efficient power conversion architecture to achieve superior solar power harvesting and best-in-class reliability. The fixed-voltage technology ensures the solar inverter is always working at its optimal input voltage over a wider range of string lengths and regardless of environmental conditions. A proprietary data monitoring receiver has been integrated into the inverter and aggregates the power optimizer performance data from each PV module. This data can be transmitted to the web and accessed via the SolarEdge Monitoring Portal for performance analysis, fault detection and troubleshooting of PV systems.
