The Iranian Deputy Minister for Energy, Dr. Sattar Mahmoudi, and the Managing Director of the Renewable Energy Organization of Iran (SUNA), Dr. Seyed Mohammad Sadeghzadeh, welcomed more than 400 attendees, twice as many as expected, at the first Intersolar Summit Iran in Tehran on November 15, 2016. Main discussions were about grid-integration solutions, financing and foreign investments.

PVinsights: Strong dollar pulls solar components lower

Solar panel prices continue to tumble this week. The strengthen greenback has resulted a pullback on major currency of RMB, Yen and Euro that negatively impacts solar panel prices as translated to dollar term. In China, as the demand has seen tempered a bit, solar panel price remain quite stable in RMB term, but results a price drop when it translates into dollar term. Similar situation also applies to the European market. Moreover, besides the impact of Euro depreciation, the demand for solar panels also seems to become quitter due to the upcoming holiday season in December. Meanwhile, although Japan and India are stepping into the traditional hot season, the improved demand and prices in solar module prices in regional currency could hardly to balance off the impacts of strong dollar. In US, solar panel prices continue to slump due to intensified price competition by solar module makers.

Tesla powers a whole island with solar to show off its energy chops

James Vincent for The Verge:  Tesla completed its $2.6 billion acquisition of SolarCity this week, and, to celebrate, the company has announced a major solar energy project: wiring up the whole island of Ta’u in American Samoa. Previously, the island ran on diesel generators, but over the past year Tesla has installed a microgrid of solar energy panels and batteries that will supply "nearly 100 percent" of power needs for Ta’u’s 600 residents. The project seems intended to show off the potential benefits of the SolarCity acquisition, with Ta’u’s microgrid comprised of 5,328 solar panels from SolarCity and Tesla, along with 60 Tesla Powerpacks batteries for storage. But buying SolarCity remains a risky move for Tesla, with the purchase including billions of dollars of debt for a company that's far from profitable (SolarCity spends $6 for every $1 it makes in sales). Nevertheless, Tesla CEO Elon Musk describes the acquisition as "blindingly obvious" — a necessary step in his so-called "Master Plan" to integrate clean energy generation and storage.  Cont'd...

Integrated Energy Systems

Opportunities for solar installers to offer storage as an integral part of their solutions are opening up everywhere, from mitigating the impact of power outages, the increase in distributed renewable generation at times of low use, the rising costs of base and peak power and the trend of some states to reduce or eliminate net metering programs.

DOE study Confirms Vast Untapped Energy and Jobs Potential for Distributed Wind Energy Systems

Today the National Renewable Energy Lab (NREL), under the direction and funding of the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), released a first ever technical and economic analysis of distributed wind power's potential in the U.S. Distributed wind typically means smaller wind turbines installed at homes, farms, businesses, and public facilities where they serve to reduce consumer's electric bills. The key finding in the new study is that distributed wind could be installed at millions of locations nationwide and has the technical potential to power the entire U.S. electrical system.
