Distributed Generation (DG) Technologies

Distributed Generation (DG) technologies have the potential to increase the reliability and quality of worldwide power in the coming decade but need continued active support from the US government.

Distributed Generation (DG) technologies have the potential to increase

the reliability and quality of worldwide power in the coming decade but
need continued active support from the US government. More efficient use
of energy resources will contribute to securing flexible power and help
the US achieve energy independence, according to "Distributed
Generation: Global Market Analysis, Technology Assessment and Outlook",
a new report from Allied Business Intelligence (ABI).

The incumbent technologies for DG applications are reciprocating
engines, and small gas turbines. ABI's market study analyzes emerging DG
technologies from fuel cells to microturbines, to wind turbines. The
study forecasts regional and technological growth for DG technologies
from a global perspective. Summary discussions are provided of the
current regulatory practices, tax practices, environmental regulations,
and business considerations effecting the present and future uptake of
DG technologies. A detailed analysis of worldwide market segmentation
and forecasts for DG is included.

LG Solar Unveils NeON R with Enhanced Aesthetics and Energy Savings

The NeON R module features "Back Contact" cell technology delivering an entirely black panel that is aesthetically pleasing and energy efficient. The cell's seamless, surface blends perfectly into nearly all rooftop designs while the module's electrodes are positioned on the rear of the cell. Using LG's N-type cell structure, the panels produce 365W of energy, up to 7.3kWp, compared to 5.8kWp of the p-type cell. The module's new design minimizes LID, thereby delivering a longer lifespan and increased energy output.
