It's not surprising that CFOs are a little nervous about investing hundreds of thousands of unbudgeted dollars in projects with hard-to-believe savings estimates. Unfortunately, this industry is somewhat a victim of its success - the better the products, the harder the estimates are to believed.
Advancements in battery technology and recharging capabilities will drive adoption. Since the beginning of 2013 we have not only seen fast-charging stations that rapidly refill a battery but also wireless recharging capabilities and battery swap techniques.
Some First Nation communities have initiated solar and wind power and mini hydroelectric initiatives but more needs to be done to ensure that all remote communities have access to clean and affordable energy.
The Solid-Oxide Fuel Cell Tactical Electrical Power Unit is aimed at reducing the need to transport fuel around the battlefield, especially in dangerous theaters like Afghanistan, where enemies routinely target supply routes with homemade bombs.
In general, ultracapacitors are great solutions whenever the power demand is high, but the duration is short. For example, we are expanding into the diesel truck market, where the high power demand of engine starting can place a great strain on the batteries, greatly lowering their useful life.
The Hybrid Renewable Energy Forecasting (HyREF) solution combines big data analytics and weather modeling technology to accurately forecast the availability of wind power and solar energy.
The implementation of ASIC based current transducers opens up functionality that the traditional discrete component transducers could never achieve.
Africa has a huge untapped potential for generating clean energy, including enough hydroelectric power from its seven major river systems to serve the entire continent's needs, as well as enormous potential for other energy sources such as solar, wind and geothermal.
Using battery-based off-grid technology, a smarter type of "grid/hybrid" inverter technology is able to use PV, wind, hydro-electric and other renewable DC energy sources to keep the batteries charged and sell the excess to the grid, just like the grid-tied unit using the grid as its battery.
Assessing the benefits and costs of distributed solar PV
American engineers pioneered green energy technology and production; resisting renewable energy mandates at this stage would be like striking out with the bases loaded with MLB scouts watching.
As the voice of the U.S. standards and conformity assessment system, ANSI provides a distinguishing mark of quality and credibility that tells educators that our standards development process has the most respected third-party approval.
One of the many challenges of operating a wind farm is meeting ongoing payments. The right technology can help wind companies meet this formidable challenge. That, in turn, helps to advance further development of wind power.
The technology breakthroughs that are helping solar cells approach 50 percent efficiency levels are encouraging, but everyday applications are still years away.
With an incentive programme now in place, the German PV industry looks to promote self-consumption, but what do installers and adopters need to know?

The GreenFasten™ - GF1 system utilizes the patented watertight technology EcoFasten Solar® is known for. The flashing is fit with our EPDM rubber bushing and when used with a compatible EcoFasten Solar compression bracket (milled with countersink), a watertight seal is created, which protects the integrity of the roof. Requiring just a single fastener (lag bolt or self-drilling), GreenFasten provides the fastest install in the industry and will not void roofing manufacturer's warranties. Backed by IAPMO certification, GreenFasten delivers a mounting solution for all new or existing (retrofit) composition shingle roofs, and is the most cost-effective solution available. Like all of the solar roof mount solutions in our line of products, GreenFasten is made in the USA using recycled materials.
