Dr. Orr revealed that Denver won the bid to host this biennial event, in which student teams compete to design, build, and operate cost-effective, energy-efficient, and attractive solar-powered houses.
The Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) enthusiastically applauded the passage of Oregon's Senate Bill 1547-B, signed into law today by Gov. Kate Brown, and congratulated all of the groups that collaborated to get this landmark legislation across the finish line.
Market Leader in Renewable Energy Improves Speed to Market as Newest Member
Brad Reed for BGR: We typically think of carbon dioxide as an unhealthy byproduct of our over reliance on fossil fuels. But what if CO2 could be used to help us move away from fossil fuels and toward renewable energy sources? GE Global Research has been working with the U.S. Department of Energy to come up with a way to use excess carbon dioxide produced by power plants to store extra solar power and deliver it back to the grid for later use. There are two major components to this solar power storage system: The first component captures solar energy and keeps it stored in molten salt, while the second component takes surplus electricity from the grid to cool off carbon dioxide to the point where it becomes dry ice. To keep the solar energy stored, the molten salt will then be released into the CO2, which will act as a battery capable of deploying power when needed. The CO2-molten salt mixture will then flow through a specially designed CO2 turbine that GE says “can generate as much as 100 megawatts of ‘fast electricity’ per installed unit.” The advantage of this system is that these turbines would be able to operate at night when there’s no solar power being directly absorbed.

In general, the installer just removes the roof piece, locates the rafters, drills pilot holes, fastens the product to the rafter, properly seals the penetration, and grinds the tile where the mount is located before placing the roof piece back over or around the mount.

IREC Releases New Policy Guidelines and Model Provisions
The prices of both multi-crystalline and mono-crystalline modules decline sequentially this week, while some regional module price drop is partially offset by the USD weakening. At this moment, major markets are entering traditional slow season, including China, India, and Japan. Although some Chinese solar players are still expecting the demand improvement in 2Q16, the current weakening demand forced solar panel price more clearly. Moreover, since solar demand in Japan and in India is also heading slow, this escalates the price pressure on solar panel.

The NeON R module features "Back Contact" cell technology delivering an entirely black panel that is aesthetically pleasing and energy efficient. The cell's seamless, surface blends perfectly into nearly all rooftop designs while the module's electrodes are positioned on the rear of the cell. Using LG's N-type cell structure, the panels produce 365W of energy, up to 7.3kWp, compared to 5.8kWp of the p-type cell. The module's new design minimizes LID, thereby delivering a longer lifespan and increased energy output.
