Hawaii's electric system is changing with rooftop solar growth and new utility ownership

The high electricity prices in Hawaii have made wind and solar technologies economically attractive alternatives, especially as their technology costs have come down in recent years.

Solar Market Predictions for 2015

IHS Technology analysts top 10 predictions for the 2015 global photovoltaic (PV) market

Training Program for Military Veterans to Maintain Growing Solar and EV Infrastructure

Rather than focus on any one particular technology, the EFST training course educates the participants about the common technologies and service requirements that touch multiple markets, most notably the solar and electric vehicle charging equipment infrastructure.

Case Study - 28kW Custom Carport in Frederick, MD

The PV Racking clamp-free rail was a great solution for this carport, as it helped to eliminate rain water leaking through the arrays in comparison to a traditional clamp-based system.

United States Installs 1,354 MW of Solar in Q3 2014

The report forecasts the U.S. to install 6.5 GW of PV in 2014, a 36 percent increase over the historic 2013.

1500 volt vs. 1000 volt system with distributed electronics: Which lowers system cost more?

This discussion poses the important question, "What are the considerations and tradeoffs of both designs - 1500 volt vs 1000 volt with distributed electronics - and which should you choose?"

First Solar Strategic Investment in Clean Energy Collective (CEC)

This partnership marks an important milestone in the quest to significantly broaden the availability of affordable, local clean energy production to residential and commercial ratepayers.

Iskandar: Planning Towards a Low Carbon Economy

Such a multi-pronged approach to develop the new and existing cities would yield to a sustainable environment within Asian cities.

Solar photovoltaic output depends on orientation, tilt, and tracking

Tilt angles may reflect factors other than generator performance. Some installation sites may not be conducive to tilted arrays or specific orientations

Optimizing a Solar Array's Tilt and Module Spacing

System optimization is more than just good-looking charts - in this case, we are able to increase system profit by $40k, an increase of over 70% versus the 15ş-tilt baseline design.

Q3 2014 Deal Volume Comparison

Acquisition activity in Q3 2014 was lower than most quarters in recent history. Activity was distributed relatively evenly across the solar markets in Europe, North America and Asia, with cross-continental deals accounting for the greatest number of transactions.

The True Value of Solar

In this paper, we look at the current state of value of solar (VOS) analysis and propose a more holistic methodology that can be consistently applied across various utility service areas.

The new EU climate and energy proposal:
What are the consequences?

The decisions of the European Council indicate the desire for greater integration of European energy markets, with an integration target of 10% by 2030.

The Pakistan Solar Association

PSA is fighting for zero duty imports until the local solar industry grows enough to address quantity and quality requirements of the solar tenders in Pakistan.

Utility of the Future

According to a new study by Berkeley Lab, distributed solar photovoltaics (PV) are the most immediate threat to investor-owned utilities and their shareholders, by depleting revenue from demand growth and need for capital investments in traditional power plants.
