Amazon Wind Farm US East, Powered by Avangrid Renewables, North Carolina's First Wind Farm, Now Fully Operational
The facility reached full commercial operation this month and began delivering power in December 2016. It features 104 modern wind turbines that will produce enough energy to power the equivalent of approximately 61,000 U.S. homes each year.
Jackie Flynn for Stanford News: A battery made with urea, commonly found in fertilizers and mammal urine, could provide a low-cost way of storing energy produced through solar power or other forms of renewable energy for consumption during off hours. Developed by Stanford chemistry Professor Hongjie Dai and doctoral candidate Michael Angell, the battery is nonflammable and contains electrodes made from abundant aluminum and graphite. Its electrolyte’s main ingredient, urea, is already industrially produced by the ton for plant fertilizers. “So essentially, what you have is a battery made with some of the cheapest and most abundant materials you can find on Earth. And it actually has good performance,” said Dai. “Who would have thought you could take graphite, aluminum, urea, and actually make a battery that can cycle for a pretty long time?” Cont'd...

Renewable energy leader puts new technology on tour for distributors, installers, home and business owners
Situated 15 kilometers south of Townsville, the project will supply electricity to the Sun Metals zinc refinery, which is a member of the Korea Zinc Group and a world leader in metal processing technology.
Lacy Cooke for Inhabitat: The first Wattway solar road pilot in America has popped up in rural west Georgia. The Ray C. Anderson Foundation, named for sustainable manufacturing pioneer Ray Anderson, is testing renewable technologies along an 18-mile stretch of road, and recently installed 538 square feet of Colas‘ Wattway solar road system near the border between Georgia and Alabama. Part of Georgia’s Interstate 85 was named for Anderson, but as over five million tons of carbon dioxideare emitted yearly on that road portion alone, Anderson’s family felt placing his name there didn’t honor his legacy, and began to look into renewable technologies to clear the air – so to speak. Thus began The Ray, an 18-mile living laboratory for clean technologies, including not only the solar roads, but also a solar-powered electric vehicle charging station, and WheelRight, a system people can drive over to test their tire pressure, which could lead to improved fuel inefficiency.

Polysilicon prices remain stable following the gain before lunar New Year, as disappointing result of price negotiation in downstream raises doubts about the strength of demand. As polysilicon prices in China hit near the saturation points, there is not much rooms for polysilicon suppliers to improve the prices. In addition, as the demand after lunar New Year holiday seems weaker than anticipated, there are also no driving forces to push up the price further. While the price rally in China tempers, polysilicon suppliers in overseas also tend to stabilize their prices as well. As the result, overall polysilicon prices stay unchanged this week.

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.
