Wind Energy in Oklahoma

Oklahoma's pro-business climate and excellent wind resource have helped to attract wind developers from across the country and the globe.

Geothermal resources used to produce renewable electricity in western states

Geothermal plants are virtually emissions free, and unlike renewable sources such as wind and solar, they provide an available, dispatchable source of baseload power that is able to operate at a relatively high capacity factor.

Green growth: an operational tool (and GDP has had its day…)

Natural capital, made up of several elements that nature provides us with as the sustenance and basis of our society (soil, raw materials, water, clean air, …) has an economic value: today any growth model that ignores this by now shared knowledge can no longer work.

Optimizing Solar Plant Implementation

In this paper, we will focus on a theoretical study and its application to a concrete site. We will try to answer the question: How can we optimize the implementation of horizontal trackers on a solar plant?

Solar Powered Generators & Energy Efficiency, Go Hand In Hand

Energy Efficiency is all about optimal and responsible power use and this is also exactly how one gets the most energy out of their solar generator.

10 Questions to Ask Before Hiring a Solar Installer

Going solar should be a great experience - not a headache, and doing your homework upfront will give you something money can't buy - peace of mind.

Upcoming Tradeshow, Conference & Exhibition Summary
October, November, December 2014

This year Solar Power International has moved to October. SPI is perhaps the most important show for the solar industry here in North America. Stay tuned for the AltEnergyMag SPI 2014 special newspage devoted to news specifically from the show.

Why The Debate Over Energy Storage Utterly Misses The Point

The quest for "The Holy Grail of Energy Storage" is doomed to fail.

Value of Solar Versus Fossil Fuels - Part 2

The value of solar power is being debated across the country by regulators, utility companies, and solar energy providers as distributed generation is increasing. This Energy and Policy Institute series consists of four separate reports summarizing recent developments, while providing recommendations for policy makers.

Energy Sources in a Disaster

Businesses need to invest in back-up renewable power systems to insure that they can continue working during and after a disaster. With such installations, businesses can prevent interruption losses caused by grid failure.

Unlikely Bedfellows: Mines That Run On Solar Or Wind Power

As mining companies continue to evaluate their power options in an era of higher diesel fuel and electricity costs, it is interesting to contemplate whether they could one day foresee operating in an environment more weighted towards renewables than conventional energy.

White Lists: A Proactive Approach to Risk Reduction for the Bioenergy Industry

As more species and cultivars are proposed to help meet the substantial renewable energy needs of our nation, more risk assessments will be necessary to identify the truly green renewable alternatives to petroleum-based energy sources.

One With The Roof

Installers working on a tile roof must deal with particularly difficult challenges. Tile roofs are manufactured from many types of materials, including clay, zinc coated aluminum, concrete, wood and fiberglass, all of which come in a wide range of shapes and sizes. Installing solar panels on a tile roof takes more time than traditional asphalt shingle roofs and often requires additional framing.

6 Reasons Why Energy Efficiency Programs Fail

Amongst the numerous measures the world has taken to wean itself off the fossil fuels, only a few have been successful in making the businesses, homes and vehicles more energy efficient. Various psychological and financial barriers have kept governments and organizations from realizing the actual potential of energy efficiency programs.

SolarEdge Technologies - Solar Inverters, Power Optimizers and PV Monitoring

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.
