Solarpraxis To Host Fourth PV Power Plants Conference In Phoenix, Arizona this Week

The large-scale power plants conference will kick-off with a networking golf tournament followed by a welcome speech from Mayor Greg Stanton and a newly-announced keynote speech from Tracey LeBeau of DOE.

BERLIN--Solarpraxis AG, one of the leading organizers of conferences in the renewable energy sector, will host its fourth PV Power Plants conference focusing exclusively on large-scale solar power plants on November 28 & 29 at the Sheraton Downtown Phoenix Hotel. The conference program boasts key industry speakers, including Tracey LeBeau of the U.S. Department of Energy who will share insights about emerging markets and opportunities, as well as updates about clean energy development in the U.S. Dr. Mahesh Morjaria of First Solar will be part of a panel discussion around Markets and Developments with Maura Yates (Sunedison), Craig Lewis (Clean Coalition), Rudy Wodrich (Schneider Electric) and Wade Shafer (HIS). This year a new topic, concerning best practice reports about Community-Owned Solar Power, will be presented by Kent James of Martifer Solar.


Overall, the conference will provide project developers and decision makers with essential technical and financial information on the following topics: smart grid, LCOE, utility-interactive control, BOS, quality assessment, bankability, plant operation, energy storage, data management, inverters, project restructuring and community solar. With the rapid development of the PV industry, it is imperative that developers obtain and implement high quality and bankable products in order to remain at the forefront of the market. The same importance applies to system costs and technology, which must maintain high quality materials and long-term durability.

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.
