Fraunhofer CSE to Host Plug and Play Solar Stakeholder Meeting at SPI on October 21, 2013

The Fraunhofer Center for Sustainable Energy Systems is pleased to announce that it will be hosting a partner and stakeholder meeting for its residential solar "plug-and-play" project team at the Solar Power International conference and trade show (SPI) on Monday, October 21st, 2013.

CSE

9;s "plug-and-play" project is a five-year, $11.7M research effort funded by the US Department of Energy's SunShot Initiative and supported by members of industry, academia, and local government. Its ultimate aim is to develop a range of pre-configured solar PV systems that can be installed and commissioned by a homeowner in one day – all without the need for significant permitting, inspection and interconnection processes. Key project partners include the cities of Boston and Worcester, utility companies National Grid, NorthEast Utilities and Green Mountain Power, Sandia National Laboratories, and various manufacturers.

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.
