The Progressive Insurance Automotive X-Prize is a huge undertaking involving Establishing a venue, staffing, training, developing tests, setting up Consumers Reports Certifications, and taking over the Michigan International Speedway in the outback, near a small town named Brooklyn in our fair State of Michigan.

Commitment to Clean Energy Technology Would Help U.S. Become Global Economic Leader and Job Creator

Innovative technological ideas that originate from small American manufacturing companies often go unrewarded. Why? Because often those companies don't have the ability to take their innovations to the world through an aggressive exporting program.

Case Study From Solar Power Partners

The West County Wastewater District, located on the San Francisco Bay, provides wastewater collection, treatment, and disposal services for several cities and parts of Contra Costa County. In adopting solar energy, the agency was interested in the long term cost-saving benefits a solar PPA afforded and its no-money down approach. The solar PPA was an excellent solution: the wastewater district pays only for the power the system produces, does not incur operation and maintenance expenses, and sees savings on its electricity bill for the next twenty years-a plus for the District's ratepayers.

Winning Hearts and Minds in the Renewable Energy Game

Ontario has been the recipient of numerous accolades lauding its aggressive renewable energy legislation and hospitable investment climate. However, some worry that despite all of these advances, Ontario is not doing everything in its power to make green technology a priority.

Micro-gardening Or Solar Electricity?

Suppose you are living in a large city and take the decision to stop using a privately owned vehicle and rely instead upon a shared car, public transport, or bicycling. Assuming you had off-street parking, what is the best use of your former parking space: gardening or solar electricity?

Altenergymag Interview - Solar Project Capitalization and Development

Prior to joining MP2 Capital as Managing Director, Jeff was a Managing Director at Lehman Brothers in Hong Kong, where he served as Head of Asia Technology Investment Banking and worked with many of the solar industry's leading panel and module suppliers. Mr. Glavan has more than 12 years of investment banking experience in corporate finance covering leading technology companies, and has advised clients on over 100 transactions including private placements, IPOs, follow-on equity offerings, high yield and convertible debt financings, and M&A and other strategic advisory transactions.

Low-cost and high performance heliostats

Heliostats are the component with the greatest impact on the cost in solar tower CSP installations, assuming 50% of the total investment. In the last years, there have been serious attempts to reduce cost by relaxing some features. The TITAN TRACKER concept achieves the goal of reducing cost offering higher performance than the rest of heliostats.

The US Solar PV Backsheet Market - Industry Trends and Opportunity Analysis to 2015

The report contains detailed analysis of PV backsheets installed, pricing, market revenues, share of imports and exports, backsheet demand based on domestic module production, lead time analysis and key product analysis.

Case Study: San Francisco MTA Transit Shelter

The Challenge: Reinvent the traditional transit shelter to take advantage of solar power. The Solution: Create a next-generation transit shelter that is both environmentally innovative and aesthetically pleasing.

Intersolar North America

Intersolar North America, taking place from July 13-15 in San Francisco's Moscone Center West Hall, promotes the development of business opportunities throughout the U.S. solar industry. More than 570 U.S.-based and international exhibitors and 20,000 trade visitors are expected.

Extracting Oil from Algae

OriginOil is very specifically a technology company that wants to make it possible for producers to scale up algae industrially. We are very focused on helping to develop an algae industry in which many players do not exist yet. That means that we have to define our role very narrowly, so that other roles can be developed.

Honda Canada Reduces Power Costs by 6% Using Harmonizer Automatic Voltage Regulator

Honda Canada's facility in Richmond British Columbia is a 127,000 ft2 distribution warehouse serving Honda Canada's West Coast operations. Standard operating hours at Honda Canada's warehouse are between 8:00AM and 8:00PM Monday to Friday, averaging 60 hours of operation per week. Prior to installing an electrical Harmonizer-AVR, Honda Canada's warehouse consumed 1,331,520 kWh annually with a peak demand of 355 kW. For the purpose of this case study, these numbers will be used a benchmark for energy consumption.

Training in Solar System Installation

There are several options available for solar energy education ranging from 1 day introduction courses through 2 year degree programs. There are community college programs, trade schools, courses offered by not for profit organizations and associations, manufacture product training and e-learning or online courses.
