Cloud-based software is one technological advancement that can pay dividends in the development and management of a wide variety of renewable energy projects, from wind farms, solar farms and geothermal plants to hydropower and biomass facilities.
While other solar forecasting systems take more narrow location and timeframe views, what's different about the IBM approach is that we incorporate a great number of weather and solar energy prediction models. We then blend those using historical data as a function of weather situation, forecast horizon and location to create what we call a supermodel.
Geothermal heat pumps are ideal for use in buildings looking to reduce consumption to net zero.
The current suggested guideline by the NRCA (National Roofing Contractor Association) for the installation of a PV system on a steep slope asphalt shingle roof as far as the flashing of the PV system stanchions, shows the metal flange to be applied underneath the roofing paper.

News and Product Announcements from InterSolar North America 2015
The use of a tracking system for a utility-scale project not only reduces LCOE, but also provides more usable power by broadening the power production curve to provide a smoother flow of energy from dawn to dusk.
Home energy storage helps whichever energy source is the cheapest, and helps the grid stay stable and available to us all.
North Carolina's Renewable Energy Portfolio Standard (REPS) has encouraged investments in renewables and the energy economy statewide.
Pay too little and you risk a dodgy product and no after-sales service. Pay too much and you'll end up waiting 10 years just to recoup your cost!
Unlike on-road electric vehicle programs which can be complicated and depend, in part, upon factors outside a utility's control, non-road programs are less risky and comparatively simple to design, operate, and control.
TRA Snow and Sun modifies Solar Tile Mount to adjust vertically for use on S-tile tile roofs to provide adequate air flow between solar panels and the tile roof.
Two states recently passed legislation that would require significant increases in renewable electricity generation.
