What is the Cleantech Fellows Institute?

The program addresses the need for experienced, successful cleantech executives to maximize the many technological and business opportunities available in clean technology.

Solar energy's vital role in our energy future

Much of the industry press coverage lately has focused on multi-100MW projects. Yet these large, centralized production facilities are not really the best use of solar energy. They certainly have their usefulness, but distributed generation offers an even better approach.

Cox Enterprises Expands Alternative Energy Use

Cox started focusing on alternative energy projects in 2007 when Cox Conserves, our national sustainability program, was created. Cox Chairman Jim Kennedy is passionate about the environment and wanted to make sure our company is being a good steward of the environment.

PV Fleet Management

PV by nature is an intermittent energy source that can be affected greatly (even over the course of seconds) by weather influences such as passing clouds. While this variability may not be a concern for the individual PV system owner, it is for utilities or system operators that may have tens of thousands of grid-connected PV systems within their service territories.

Going Green in Indian Country: Two Sides of the Buffalo Nickel

Hopefully both sides of the coin - cultural property protection in the face of any callous non-Indian energy development, and streamlined tribal energy development for sake of tribal self-determination - can be realized by the revised S. 1684. The protection of Indian Country, both in the long and short term, quite literally depends on it.

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.
