Baker Electric Solar designed and installed a 59.89 kW solar system for Full Swing™ Golf. The installation of 226 Kyocera 265W solar modules will produce roughly 80 percent of the company's annual electricity needs and save the company more than $20,000 on its energy costs the first year.

Turboden to launch Steam & Power ORC, a new ORC Cogeneration System for manufacturing processes, designed for steam and power production

Turboden launches a new technological solution together with Bono Sistemi, technical partner of the project. The Steam & Power (ST&P) ORC system allows the production of electricity and a valuable high temperature heat carrier, such as steam, directly exploitable in manufacturing processes. The launch will take place at Power Gen Europe, at Fiera Milano City - Milan on June 21st and 22nd: in Suite 7 (Mezzanine level, South Wing) and each day there will be three presentation sections at 11 am, 2 pm and 4 pm.

New Solar Cell Device Surpasses Theoretically Predicted Efficiency Limit

Thomas Burton for Energy Technology Matters:  A team of researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) published a paper last week in the journal Nature Energy that described how they built a working solar thermophotovoltaic device (STPV) that enables solar cells to break through a theoretically predicted ceiling on how much sunlight they can convert into electricity. With this revolutionary new technology, the researchers show the potential of how solar panels can generate even more energy than theoretically determined by harnessing some of the panels’ waste. To learn more about the STPV technology, read on! Since 1961, the Shockley-Queisser Limit established an absolute theoretical limit on traditional solar cell efficiency regarding energy conversion. A single-layer of silicon cells—the type of cells most widely used in today’s solar panels—has an upper limit of 32 percent. But currently, researchers are studying ways to increase this overall efficiency by using multiple layers of cells or converting the sunlight first to heat before generating electrical power. This latter method uses devices called STPVs, which the MIT team used in their study.   Cont'd...

Saving the Earth by Making Energy Industry's Boardrooms Diverse

Ainslie Chandler for Bloomberg:  The U.S. energy sector accounts for 83.6 percent of the country’s carbon emissions, according to the Environmental Protection Agency, so tackling climate change effectively requires their participation. Some experts worry the lack of diversity in their leadership is hindering that shift. Energy-sector boards are the least diverse of any industry globally, with 8.2 percent of seats occupied by women, compared with an average of 10.5 percent for all businesses, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. That translates to an average of just 0.7 women on the board of each of the 650 energy companies in Bloomberg’s review. More than 170 countries signed the Paris Agreement in April, which aims to limit the global temperature increase to below two degrees Celsius. If this target is going to be met and the transition to a “de-carbonized” economy made, companies will need to fundamentally change, so leadership teams also have to change, said Rachel Kyte, chief executive and special representative of the UN Secretary-General at Sustainable Energy for All. “It’s like this bus is coming toward us,” Kyte said of climate change and the transition to renewable energy. “If you keep asking the same people and they keep coming up with the same answer, we’re not going to manage this transition very well.”   Cont'd...

FRENELL's CSP technology to contribute to the success of China's renewable energy targets

The 13th five-year National Development Plan initiated by the National Energy Administration (NEA) for the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) set the goal to install Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) plants with a total capacity of 10 Gigawatt by 2020 in China.

Friends of Science Report "Why Renewable Energy Cannot Replace Fossil Fuels by 2050" Will Shock Green Investors and Challenges the Grantham Climate Change Risk Scenario

Friends of Science Society's new report "Why Renewable Energy Cannot Replace Fossil Fuels by 2050" demonstrates that moving to a 'low-carbon' society is nigh impossible without the vast use of fossil fuels, bringing into question the climate change risk claims of the Grantham "Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures." New research of the social cost of carbon suggest the net costs may even be net beneficial when properly calculated.
