Solar Architects and Engineers Around the World Submit Papers for Denver Conference

Researchers headed to the World Renewable Energy Conference, May 13-17

Boulder, Colo., Nov. 14 – Researchers from Bangladesh, China, Korea and Iran have submitted abstracts for technical papers to be delivered at the World Renewable Energy Forum (WREF 2012), coming to Denver's Colorado Convention Center, May 13 to 17. Abstracts have come in from Wisconsin, Oregon, Utah and Colorado, as well.


Concepts covered by early submissions include

· an improved design for parabolic trough mirrors used in electric generating plants,

· better foundations for offshore wind turbine towers,

· solar cells based on inorganic quantum dots,

· lighter, thinner solar water heating collectors,

· improved building-integrated solar heating elements,

· a better spectral analysis of pyranometer response, and

· forestry issues related to solar power development.

For the first time, the American Solar Energy Society's National Solar Conference will combine with the bi-annual World Renewable Energy Congress. Energy experts from around the world will come to Denver, the epicenter of renewable energy in the United States, to share their research, knowledge and experience.

Renewable energy technologies are now crossing over the grid-parity divide into mainstream use throughout the world. WREF 2012 will examine how renewable energy technologies address the world's economic, environmental and security challenges at every scale, from off-grid villages to gigawatt power plants.

OMG Roofing Products - PowerGrip Universal

Eliminate Solar Rack Ballast and Reduce Rooftop Material Handling. PowerGrip™ Universal (PGU) is a commercial roof mount system designed to secure solar racks and other equipment to any type of commercial roofing system. PGU provides a secure connection directly to the roof deck or structural members and is designed to reduce or eliminate ballast in solar racking systems, so there's less weight on the roof and less material handling. Made of heavy-duty cast aluminum, PGU units include a base ring which is secured through the roofing cover and into the structural roof deck, and a waterproof top plate.
