DRINKing It in: Five Teams and Their Desalination Designs Earn a Spot in Final Stage of Waves to Water Prize Competition
This month, DOE and NREL officially announced the five teams that earned a spot in the fifth and final competition stage, DRINK. Now, these five have 180 days to prepare their devices for an open-ocean trial at the Coastal Studies Institute in North Carolina in April 2022.
In part one of this blog post series we talked about how MLPE technologies impact performance and shared five common myths about power optimizers. In this second post, SMA expert Blair Reynolds continues providing clarification on five more of the most common misconceptions.
When dealing with any form of energy and its storage, there is always some degree of risk with an associated hazard involved. With PSH, there is a risk that the containment could fail producing the hazard of cascading water rushing through the surrounding area.
If companies are to take responsibility for their huge plastic waste footprints, they need to start investing in the search for cheaper, durable and truly sustainable alternatives. But how can this be achieved?
Just like a satellite, SolarXOne is packed with technologies. Half airplane, half drone, this UAV weighs 25 kg, has a 4.50 m wingspan, and is innovative in several ways.
Another new product we’re excited about is our EPDM Conduit Mount for Asphalt Shingle, EPDM & TPO roofs. This mount offers great flexibility in bundling cables and wires. It is also a deck mounted product, so skip the rafters and install anywhere on the roof.
In this series, we’ll debunk common misconceptions and shed some light on how performance is impacted by MLPE technologies.
