Alternative Energy Provisions in the American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012

Although the Act can be seen as merely a stopgap measure for the alternative energy industry, it is worth noting that enactment of these provisions in this political environment, with the extraordinary pressure on deficit reduction that Congress is facing, demonstrates the breadth and depth of the bipartisan support that alternative energy has in this country. This bodes very well for the future of the domestic industry.

Turnkey Photovoltaic Robotics

A turnkey automation provider like Reis, with extensive experience in solar module manufacturing specifically, can help you derive the best configuration for your product and your business plan.

Fuel Cells: The Perfect Power Partner

Fuel cells have an unmatched combination of benefits, leading the companies profiled to collectively save millions of dollars in electricity, labor and fuel costs while reducing carbon dioxide emissions by hundreds of thousands of metric tons per year.

Organic PlaCSH Solar Cells with 175% Increased Efficiency Developed

NSL Scientists have overcome the core issue of Solar Cells: The unavailability to fully capture light that enters the cell and light reflecting from the cell. The Scientists rectified this issue using a nano structured sandwich of metal(gold) and plastic that collects and traps light.

Conservation Not Technology will be our Saviour

In this interview with James Stafford of OilPrice.com, Economist Chris Martenson covers two main thoughts --- Don't Fall for the Shale Boom Hype -and- Conservation Not Technology will be our Saviour

Standardizing EV Systems and Components

SAE International is excellent for activity within the automotive industry. However, other Standards Development Organizations (SDO) such as IEC, ISO, UL and NEMA have different areas of responsibility.

Solar Training and Certification

Each state in the US has different requirements for installing PV systems. Some states, like Colorado, require a certain number of NABCEP certified installers per job, whereas in North Carolina, you must be an electrician to sell or install a PV system.

Electric Vehicle Trends of 2012 and Into the Future

The EV industry will continue to evolve as infrastructure rolls out across the country, the selection of charging and EV model options will broaden and the number of environmentally conscious consumers will grow.

Vegawatt Cogeneration System Powers Restaurants with Waste Vegetable Oil

Currently, Owl Power Company has 22 Vegawatt devices installed and operating at restaurants, most located in the Northeast, with one in California and two in the United Kingdom.

Wind Energy Outlook

The two countries where we have seen the most substantial investment and growth is China and India, where they see opportunities to export technologies worldwide and invest in global solutions. This is something that Europe has practiced over the past few years.

The Renewable Energy Market Climate

Europe still leads all geographies in terms of overall deals completed. However, the U.S. has been gaining traction and represented a much greater percentage of the total transactions completed in the third quarter of 2012 than it has historically.

New insights through analysis of hourly meter values

As more and more final consumers are metered hourly, the volume of meter values that grid operators have to collect, store, and transmit to other actors in the electricity market continues to grow. But hourly metering does not have to be a burden for grid operators - the growing volumes of meter values can be analyzed in multiple ways to provide grid operators with valuable insights that allow them to make better decisions.

It's Massive Yet Tiny

A 14 x 14" MYT engine has 850 cubic inches of displacement and weighs 150 pounds, compared to a conventional engine, which would weigh 3,000 pounds to produce the same power. The engine needs no oil, as the biofuel is the lubricant due to the high lubricity of biofuel. With every tank of fuel, the engine is circulated with more than 20 gallons of fresh engine oil compared to 5 quarts of engine oil circulating over 3,000 miles in conventional engines. You can now skip changing oil forever and have an engine with longer life.

Off-Grid PV Systems

The development of PV systems in the last 10 years has been dedicated mainly to grid-tied systems. Meanwhile all-rural electrification systems have remained basically the same for the past 20 years. However, Yake Solar has engineered a new approach to PV rural electrification.

True Grid

"Grid parity occurs when an alternative energy source can generate electricity at a levelized cost that is less than or equal to the price of purchasing power from the electricity grid. Reaching grid parity is considered to be an important point in the development of new sources of power.

Solar & Wind - Featured Product

WS510 Secondary Standard

WS510 Secondary Standard

In the monitoring of large photovoltaic (Utility Scale), in assessing potential sites (Solar-assessment), or in up and coming electricity cost saving initiatives projects (Commercial & Industrial), the WS510 now provides the market a secondary standard pyranometer, ultrasonic wind speed, ultrasonic wind direction, temperature, pressure and humidity all in a single unit.. This sensor meets the high demands of the world meteorological organization (WMO) through the active valving at air temperature measurement and the inertia- and maintenance-free measurement of wind speed and wind direction on the ultrasonic principle. Equipped with a Kipp & Zonen pyranometer of the secondary standards, the WS510-UMB Compact weather sensor from Lufft unites the precision of a variety of meteorological individual sensors in a single all-in-one device, for the first time.
