World Bank and UNEP - Release of New Wind and Hydro Models

World Bank, UNEP and Natural Resources Canada, released the new Wind and Hydro Models. These new project models enable users to better estimate the potential of carbon finance for their projects. The RETScreen Clean Energy Project Analysis Software now has more than 53,000 users in 205 countries.

Natural Resources Canada`s CETC-Varennes, along with the World Bank`s Prototype Carbon Fund (PCF) and the United Nations Environment Programme`s (UNEP) Division of Technology, Industry and Economics (DTIE), are co-operating to develop and incorporate an improved greenhouse gas emissions baseline tool into the RETScreen International Clean Energy Project Analysis Software. This inclusion will enable RETScreen users to better estimate the potential of carbon finance for their projects.


RETScreen International - Version 3.0 upgrades include a metric/imperial unit switch; updated product data; an enhanced GHG model to account for the emerging rules under the Kyoto Protocol; and a new Sensitivity & Risk Analysis worksheet. The Wind Energy and Small Hydro Project Models are now available, with the other existing technology models to be upgraded.

RETScreen now has more than 53,000 software users in 205 countries around the world and is growing at 250 new users every week.

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.
