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)

Solar cell therapy: transforming second-rate goods into first-class products

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.

TE Energy and the Wind Industry

With the Developing economies having realized the advantage of Wind Power, we see maximum growth coming from the Emerging Economies in this sector. Latin America, India, South East Europe to name a few.

What would be the optimum structure & characteristics of a Federal Loan Guarantee Program for Solar?

Can we envision a fair, balanced LG program that serves those that need it the most rather than only those that can afford to participate?

Green Innovation - Fukuoka Hydrogen Town

So far, the Hy-life project has been very successful and innovative - it aims to bring a change to Japan and eventually to the world. It seems slightly long-term because of its unprecedented trial in the world, but they are trying to implement the plan through sustainable procedures.

Smart Grids - Big Ideas & Big Business

The tremendous benefit of Smart Grid technologies is encouraging action at EU and Member State level, such as with standardisation and implementation of funding schemes and other regulatory incentives for development projects.

Smart Grid Communications

Ultimately, a wireless communication system that lowers cost, speeds up deployment, and accelerates global energy efficiency and usage, can enable companies to design state-of-the-art Smart Grid solutions, water & gas distribution systems, condition & risk monitoring and energy-optimizing infrastructure systems.

Intelligent Energy Storage Systems

Intelligent energy storage allows customers to optimize usage of their energy storage unit(s). Greensmith is tapping into modern computing and communications to collect, analyze, and utilize data to maximize the value of their asset.
