SPI 2016 - Interview with SolaTrim

The floor team knows what to ask visitors and how to present our value to them. And for the most part, visitors are receptive and give us quite a positive response.

Small Power, Big Grid: Part 1

This series will focus on these questions in the area of transmission planning (regional load forecasting and solutions to identified grid needs), wholesale market design, and facilitation of utility business model reform.

High Tech High Goes Solar

High Tech High Chula Vista strives to empower its students to ask the big questions and make big changes in the world. Climate change is one of the most pressing issues in our world, making solar energy one of the most effective responses that HTHCV has at its disposal.

The Future of Bio-Inspired Batteries

A major advantage that bio-inspired batteries have as compared to other batteries is their ability to allow an instant recharge.

Making Biofuel a Cost-Effective, Renewable Source of Energy

Researchers at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory are using multiphysics simulation to better understand and optimize the conversion process for plant-derived biofuels.

Berkeley Lab Study
Continued Reductions in Wind Energy Costs

Experts anticipate cost reductions of 24%-30% by 2030 and 35%-41% by 2050, under a median or 'best guess' scenario, driven by bigger and more efficient turbines, lower capital and operating costs, and other advancements

Solar on Houses Needed for 2020 Target

In the last ten years, the installed global solar energy capacity has multiplied nearly 50 times. The cost of purchasing and installing a solar panel has decreased by 80 percent in five years and is still falling. The comparable cost of electricity generation has made solar energy the cheapest energy source today, from being the most expensive only six years ago. This is truly a green revolution.

IREC's National 3iAwards Presented For Innovation, Ingenuity & Inspiration in Clean Energy

Winners Announced at Awards Ceremony at Solar Power International

Silicon Carbide (SiC) Inverter Technology Increases Efficiency to 99%

The efficiency gain equals to approximately $2.5M additional energy being produced over a 100MW power plant's lifetime, on average at the global level.

Alternative Energy Project Financing

If storage costs can demonstrate price reductions comparable to what we've experienced with wind and solar, storage will be a big part of the story.

Special News Report for Solar Power International 2016

New product announcements and news from SPI 2016. Post your company news or read about what others are doing at the show.

Increasing the Storage Capacity of Lithium Batteries

BioSolar is developing electrode material technologies to increase the storage capacity, lower the cost and extend the life of lithium-ion batteries.

Batteries Get a Boost From California Utilities

If we stop and take a critical look at the fragility of our energy supply system, we see that it could be strengthened by distributing energy generation and storage. This means it's not just the utility company's job to store energy… it's everyone's job.

Solarodo - New and Used Solar Equipment Marketplace

We want to use the experience we gained in Europe and create the platform with the biggest product variety in the US.

NREL Research Puts the Wind at an Industry's Back

NREL's ultimate goal in this testing is to foster the technological developments necessary for wider deployment of wind energy in the marketplace at the lowest cost possible.

TRA SNOW AND SUN - SOLAR TILE MOUNT

TRA SNOW AND SUN - SOLAR TILE MOUNT

You haven't installed a tile mount that is easier to install than the Solar Tile Mount manufactured by TRA Snow and Sun. Solar Tile Mount is used on all tile roof profiles: flat, mid, and high. It is made in the USA of aluminum alloy for strength and excellent corrosion resistance. Solar Tile Mount is built to allow more ease in installation with more rise from the tile surface to the rail for better air flow below panels. The adjustable base is longer than most allowing attachment 6" to the left or right to have the bracket in the base of the pan of the tile and still fasten to the rafter. Solar Tile Mount is adjustable for counter batten systems from ¾" to 3". The horizontal rail is directly above base fasteners giving greater uplift resistance than any other system. For superior waterproofing apply TRA Snow and Sun's butyl backed VersaFlash aluminum flashing. No tile flashing is needed on top of the tile for greater labor and material cost savings.
