Mr. Deep Chakraborty currently CEO of Centrosolar America, Inc. since January 2010, was until recently Vice President of the parent Group in Munich, Germany. At Centrosolar, Deep has focused on a fast ramp-up of the US business: launching Centrosolar-branded products, growing the sales and engineering organization and launching a systems-based approach to Centrosolar's product offering in the North American market.
The pace of the European solar photovoltaic (PV) market in the first half of 2010 was dominated by the impending mid-year incentive tariff reductions in Germany and conditioned by the lower module pricing that emerged through 2009, according to the latest from Solarbuzz® in Europe PV Markets 2010.
Solimpeks, Turkey's largest thermal and hybrid collector manufacturer, recently implemented a drain meander system in the city of Izmir successfully.
GreenField Solar (GreenField) is a developer of high-intensity photovoltaic concentrators, which offer the potential to drive low-cost solar energy into mainstream adoption, using readily available materials and technology that is capital efficient.
SolarCity is the nation's leading full-service solar provider for homeowners, businesses and government organizations—the first company to provide solar power system design, financing, installation and monitoring services from a single source.
The appetite for solar in America's southeast is growing. On October 2, 2010, Mississippi Solar's Will and Carolyn Hegman are serving up some mouth-watering, cost-effective ideas to feed that hunger during their second Annual "Down on the Farm" solar tour. The tour is part of the non-profit American Solar Energy Society's National Solar Tour, the world's largest grassroots solar event. Over 646 tours are taking place across 48 states, with more coming online each week.
By 2011, Ontario's solar PV capacity could run as high as 250 MW. The Ontario Power Authority had 486 MW contracted at the end of 2009, which, if fulfilled this year, could make Ontario the largest market in North America for solar PV installation and training in 2010.
SkyFuel, Inc. is a solar thermal power technology and service provider founded in 2007. SkyFuel solar collectors harness solar radiation to produce steam for electricity generation and industrial applications. The Company is a leading supplier of utility-scale concentrating solar power (CSP) systems. SkyFuel currently offers an advanced, glass-free parabolic trough solar thermal collector, called the SkyTrough®. It is the highest performance, lowest-cost utility-scale solar power system in the world.
Air transfer makes solar thermal power more reliable than ever.
PV-T, which is hybrid Photovoltaic and Thermal collector, production of both electricity and hot water is done simultaneously. The PV module's heat is absorbed to produce hot water so that PV efficiency can be optimized as the heat is transferred into fluid to produce hot water.
Few people realize what a huge impact several hundred thousand solar water heaters can have on a country's energy demand. Thermal solar (heating water) is a sensible and efficient way to avoid the expense and potential danger of nuclear plants. Hot water is always needed and solar energy is the best method to meet those demands. Since thermal solar heats our oceans, isn't it about time we utilize the proven technology of solar water heaters?
tenKsolar designs, manufactures and markets unique photovoltaic systems which provide the highest kilowatt hour production per unit area at the lowest cost per kilowatt hour. Founded in 2008 and headquartered in Minneapolis, Minnesota, tenKsolar has announced its RAIS™ Wave system which combines PV modules, reflectors and racking configured in a repeating wave pattern to provide the highest density energy producing system for flat roof or ground mount systems.
GlobalData's report "The US Solar PV Market Analysis Policies and Incentives, Industry Trends and Forecasts to 2015" gives an in-depth analysis of the US Solar PV market and provides forecasts up to 2015. The research analyzes the key trends, major issues and growth opportunities in the US Solar PV market.
The market for solar water heating in Brazil is growing and consolidating in recent years. In 2009, the first estimate of the solar industry is that has been installed more than 771 thousand square meters of solar collectors, accumulating a total area of 5.2 million square meters.
When considering a residential solar power system, homeowners have numerous concerns before they commit to an installation. First and foremost, they are concerned about cost, then they want to know what the structural impact will be on their home and then they will, of course, be concerned about performance of the system. When considering performance, homeowners need to be comfortable with the warranty that comes with their home solar power system and what to expect when purchasing residential solar panels.
