Understanding the Impact of the New Lisbon Treaty on EU Energy Policy and the Opps for Scotland

"If projects are to succeed, their technologies must be aligned with those set out in the Strategic Energy Technology (SET-) Plan"; Bioenergy, CCS, Grids, Fuel Cells & Hydrogen, Nuclear, Energy Efficiency, Solar and Wind.

Solders and fluxes for soldering PV panels

Our R&D department currently is working and will continue to work on new, innovative products for the photovoltaic industry. Already this year, we have introduced new alloys and fluxes. We will launch even more new products in the coming months.

PV Front Sheet Systems

A pre-laminate that combines ETFE frontsheet and EVA encapsulant, features all the performance benefits of both with improved production efficiencies, including reduced wrinkles and precise alignment. In addition, it can help module manufacturers achieve lower systems cost with reduced packaging and shipping costs.

The DIY Guide to OFF GRID Solar Electricity

In this article I'll show you how to untether from the grid, and avoid a smelly, noisy, fuel consuming generator except in extreme weather conditions. It can be pricey for a good system, but you'll have minimal ongoing expenses, unlike fuel and maintenance on a generator. The less power you consume, the less power you will need to generate, keeping the system costs down. It's important to start with conservation.

Solar System Racking Systems

From a materials perspective, racking represents roughly 5-10% of the system cost. That said, the labor required to install the modules on the racking system costs twice as much as the racking material involved and can account for up to 66% of the total installed cost of a system. According to expert industry analysts, the speed and ease of installation for the racking system can directly impact roughly 40% of the total installed cost.

The World's Largest Fleet of Hydrogen Fuel Cell Hybrid Buses

Between 2006 - 2010 Ballard Power Systems and its consortium partners developed the next generation of zero- emission fuel cell buses for deployment by BC Transit.

SolarAid - A growing solar charity increasing access to electricity in rural Africa

To date, SolarAid has installed over 150 rural solar systems in Africa and plans to double this number in the coming year. With only a small fraction of people living in rural Africa currently enjoying access to electricity, SolarAid is planning to increase the scale of its work so that it can reach as many people as possible and continue to contribute towards the growth of solar market in Africa.

The Five Myths of Going Green

Understand that Green is profitable from Day 1 when quantifiable Savings exceed project's Finance Costs. For example, verifiable Energy and/or Water savings equal $ 1 per month; while financing that project costs anything less than $ 1 per month. Focus on projects with fast Payback Period, double-digit ROI, and Tax Incentives.

10 Things to Know When Developing Rooftop Solar Photovoltaic Systems

It is critical to understand the many complexities specific to rooftop solar photovoltaic (PV) development. Successful execution and delivery of expected returns requires careful management of the complex route to rooftop solar PV development.

Prop 23, Alternative Energy And The Built Environment

In 2006 California passed legislation to require consumers and industries to begin reducing their carbon emissions. The name of this bill is AB32.

Who are The Renewables? What do they represent?

The Renewables™ are part of a multi-platform marketing and educational program for renewable energy and energy efficiency. This team of sustainable superheroes represents five sources of renewable energy and serves as educators, promoters, and spokespeople for clean energy and the environment.

Solar & Wind Power Circuit Protection

Stephen Colvin is Vice President of Marketing for Mersen's North American Electrical Protection interests. His responsibilities comprise management of all aspects of the marketing department including product line management, marketing communications, public relations and market research.

Increasing the Efficiency of Utility-Scale Solar Plants with Secure Wireless Technology

Solar plants can exist over a large geographical area and operators must be able to easily and quickly determine the ‘health,' status and performance of individual assets and the system as a whole.

Studies on Lignin Substitute for Diesel Fuels

Lignin as a substitute for diesel fuel is derivative waste from agricultural and forestry production, which does not need any dedicated cultivation and is regenerated at a rate of 50 billion tons per year on the Earth. Therefore, lignin does not have resource supplies constraint or cost concern. Taken into account cellulose pulp as a byproduct in lignin production, the actual cost of lignin is almost zero.

SolarEdge Technologies - Solar Inverters, Power Optimizers and PV Monitoring

The SolarEdge PV inverter combines sophisticated digital control technology with efficient power conversion architecture to achieve superior solar power harvesting and best-in-class reliability. The fixed-voltage technology ensures the solar inverter is always working at its optimal input voltage over a wider range of string lengths and regardless of environmental conditions. A proprietary data monitoring receiver has been integrated into the inverter and aggregates the power optimizer performance data from each PV module. This data can be transmitted to the web and accessed via the SolarEdge Monitoring Portal for performance analysis, fault detection and troubleshooting of PV systems.
