Cleantech Week Feb 6-10, San Francisco - merges the cleantech industry & the climate movement to create new business opportunities, highlight solutions & spur further massive investment
Sputnik News: A team of enterprising Russian scientists managed to develop a unique power generator that uses both solar and wind energy at the same time to produce electricity. There have been numerous attempts before to produce a combo solar+wind power generator, but so far none have met success. Solar panels tend to wear out rather quickly due to the powerful air currents generated by wind turbines, which drastically limits the system’s efficiency. But now, the combined efforts of the Central Aerohydrodynamic Institute, the Moscow Power Engineering Institute and a Zelenograd-based solar panel manufacturer have finally borne fruit. Cont'd...
Companies partner to save on energy costs and enhance academic curriculum
Wind power employs just over 100,000 Americans according to new data released today by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), more than work at nuclear, natural gas, coal, or hydroelectric power plants.
Companies partner to encourage sustainable practices, save on costly energy charges
Cheaper, cleaner energy possible, if Government removes barriers to storage and places stronger incentives on network operators
Solar Energy Companies Collaborate with Brandeis University to Install 1.3 Megawatt Virtual-Net-Metered Solar Array to Save up to $2 Million in Energy Costs Over 20 Years
Solar project resulted from collaboration between Kenyon Energy, Borrego Solar, AEW Capital Management, and Competitive Energy Services with Brandeis
Tom DiChristopher for CNBC: Some of the world's top oil exporters want to be major players in solar power, too. Middle East and North African countries, blessed by ample sunlight and open space, are increasingly adopting solar power. But it's not European, Chinese or American companies taking the lead on some of the region's largest solar parks. It's local firms that are relatively new to renewable energy. Analysts say meeting solar demand at home is just the start. Some of these companies could become global competitors in the fast-growing market for large solar power plants. Cont'd...
Suntech, one of the world's leading solar modules manufacturers recently announced that its highest mass production conversion efficiency of multicrystalline silicon solar cell has reached 20%.
APsystems microinverters have joined the popular Sungage solar financing approved vendor list.
Chinese slowdown and falling costs of solar power were two of the reasons global clean energy investment fell 18% in dollar terms last year
NEXTracker™, a Flex company, announced today it has partnered with CleanMax Solar, India's largest solar developer for corporate consumers, to supply 30 MW of its advanced NX Horizon single-axis trackers to a project in Tamil Nadu. The grid-connected project will deliver energy to a major IT consumer in Chennai, under a long-term contract with CleanMax Solar. Set up under the Group Captive Scheme, 100% of the electricity generated will be consumed in Tamil Nadu. The system is expected to be operational by the end of Q1 2017.
The overall price of solar module continues its downward trend with limited scope. As the market is still struggling with oversupply, limited trade volumes have been seen after the holiday season in Europe and America as companies are still planning the year ahead at the start of 2017, resulting in a minor price decline in EU and US. Meanwhile, the price in Japan, India, and China remained firm this week due to relatively decent demand in the region. Furthermore, after the sharp decline last quarter, the overall price adjustment has slowed down due to weak dollar and slowing price competition in the global market, but the pressure resulting from oversupply still exists. Thus, the overall solar module prices drop slightly this week.
AES Distributed Energy and KIUC Announce Plan to Construct Innovative Renewable Peaker Plant in Kauaʻi Utilizing a Hybrid Solar and Energy Storage System
The system will be located on former sugar land between Lāwaʻi and Kōloa on Kauaʻi's south shore. It will be the largest solar-plus-utility-scale-battery system in the state of Hawaiʻi and one of the biggest storage systems in the world.
In response to increasing demand for operations and asset management services, Natural Power has announced the appointment of Julius Carter as Head of Operations and Asset Management in North America.

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.
