Solar Power Purchase Agreements (PPA)

PPAs are best for organizations that own their own buildings or homes. Or plan to occupy their space for an extended period of time. Also, a property owner who has a large open property or rooftop space (such as a warehouse or distribution center) may also enter into a PPA in connection with a rooftop or property lease as a means to generate not only renewable energy, but also revenue from energy sales to the local utility.

Solar Project Insurance

The inability of some solar project developers to secure the right coverage coupled with concerns about the long-term viability of equipment manufacturers has created fear and uncertainty in the marketplace, preventing some investors from financing projects.

Case Study: William G. Mennen Sports Arena

Tioga helped facilitate a first-of-its kind financing program ("the Morris Model") in which taxable bonds were issued to finance the solar program

Woody Biomass: An Emerging Bio-Energy

The WBUGP provides financial support to projects ( up to a maximum of $250,000) that responsibly use woody biomass to produce energy. It also supports projects that seek to remove economic and market barriers that restrict the use of woody biomass as a source of renewable bio-energy.

The Smart Junction Box for Solar Panel Monitoring and Control

The Smart Junction Box allows for wireless communication with a central unit that can track the panels on their individual performance and allows the panels or its substrings to be quickly switched off in the case of failure, fire, tornado or other calamity.

Solar Energy Index Underperforms S&P in Q1 2012

Lincoln International's Renewable Energy Group is pleased to present the latest Q1 2012 Solar Energy Stock Index Report, which tracks relevant solar company metrics in this growing industry.

Too much of a good thing can lead to grid stability issues

Today an increasing amount of intermittent PV electricity is being pumped into the grid. As grid capacity nears its limits, the issue of grid compatibility is gaining in significance. Solar-farm owners must prove that - once connected to the electricity grid - their plants will behave in the same manner as conventional power stations have done for years. Failure to ensure solid preparation of the comprehensive certifications required in this context may delay the launch of service for their solar power system.

Mobile Solar System Monitoring

Our Intelligent Solar Information System (ISIS) provides industry-leading monitoring, diagnostics, reporting, and control of solar power plants.

Structural Batteries: Building in Power

Structural batteries are sheets of carbon-composite material that can be molded into complex 3-D shapes to form the actual structure of a device. Thus, the rear wing of a racing car becomes an in-built battery, a torch is its own power source, and the fabric of a tent can capture solar energy.

Looking for innovative ideas about the future of public transportation in cities

Bombardier, a global leader in aerospace and rail transportation is inviting people to submit ideas for sustainable mobility in the urban environment.

A Comparison of Lead Acid to Lithium-ion in Stationary Storage Applications

There is currently no single solution that is better than another for all situations, but lithium-ion systems offer better cost of ownership in a number of situations, specifically hot climates, despite the higher initial cost.

Attaining Stability in the California Renewables Market

In pursuing its brave new world of green energy, California will inevitably experience the vicissitudes of its pioneering undertaking - the twists and turns on the road to TLC (transparency, longevity, certainty)

Innotech Solar optimizes off-spec cells

Winning the battle of energy savings

Two years ago, the New Jersey Army National Guard asked the Army Corps if it could construct a solar power project so they could save energy and money as they had done for them on previous solar power projects.

Addressing the challenge of expiring federal incentives for renewables

With the elimination of federal incentives for renewable generation, more than $20 billion may be shifted from the federal level (i.e. all taxpayers) to the customers in states with RPS targets.
