Case Study - Windward Nazarene Bay View Golf Course

In total, the site connected 5 systems to 5 meters in order to generate over 85% of the net energy needed by the course.

Moving from Silicon Solar Cells to Thin Films - Studying the Changing Face of Solar Power

Though silicon cells dominate the current chapter of the solar power industry, the efficiency and cost effectiveness of thin film cells will surely succeed in the times to come to build a better environment, while fulfilling the energy needs of the consumers and industry.

Advantages of HDPV Inverters with Ampt Optimizers

The HDPV™ Alliance brings solar industry equipment manufacturers and solution providers together around a common vision for the development and adoption of lower cost and higher performance PV systems.

Solar Energy Index Outperforms S&P in Q1 2014

Lincoln International's Renewable Energy Group is pleased to present the latest Q1 2014 Solar Energy Stock Index Report, which tracks relevant solar company metrics in this growing industry.

More than 250MWp of transactions registered last year on the photovoltaic secondary market in Italy

It is of interest to note how the large majority of plants, in terms of numbers of single plants, is skewed towards projects with a size lower than 3MWp, represented by more than 5'000 plants.

Renewable electricity generation projections sensitive to cost, price, policy assumptions

This Issues in Focus article is intended to emphasize that there is a great deal of uncertainty related to factors such as policy, project costs, and natural gas prices—and that a shift in any of these factors could significantly change EIA's renewable projections, generally in the positive direction.

Rail-less Residential PV Mounting

By providing a pre-engineered kit that incorporates the all-in-one concept (fasteners, flashing, brackets and bonding plates, all from one source), Roof Tech products are easy to understand and can be standardized for any array configuration

CA Lottery Hits Jackpot with Solar and Ice-based Energy Storage

The Pavilion of CA Lottery Uses Ice Storage and Solar Panels to Achieve Net Zero.

Solar Tracking Technology

The demand for trackers has expanded significantly in recent years as more reliable and cost-effective solutions come to market. According to a recent study by Transparency Market Research, the global installed capacity for solar trackers is estimated to reach almost 9 GW by 2020.

The Benefits of Power Optimizers

Power optimizers are a module-level power electronics (MLPE) solution that can be affixed on-site or embedded during the manufacturing process as a replacement for the junction box.

Much Energy Above the Treetops

Inland sites can offer sufficient wind yield for wind-farm operation. Initial results obtained from a TÜV SÜD test wind mast show that wind yield depends on the specific location.

Sustainability for the PV Industry: Field Service

By examining the differences in cost of service and downtime between three types of PV systems, we have demonstrated that the lowest TCO, and thus lowest LCOE, can be achieved by utilizing a field-serviceable string inverter.

Solar Power and the Future Energy Mix

In the near future, as solar becomes even more efficient and cost effective, it will play a larger role in industry and energy production. Plants that primarily burn natural gas for fuel, for example, will increasingly use solar to supplement the process to increase the efficiency of power generation.

The Key To Residential Solar Power Is Now Marketing

The potential for solar power is now enormous. The economics are attractive; the appeal is proven; the code has been cracked. With proper marketing, the future of solar power is very bright indeed.
