The "Competitive Solar Energy & Finance Solutions for the GCC" will prepare the inaugural event of a new annual series named the "Solar and Energy Storage Forum 2014" that will be held in November 2014. It is a seminar where solar developers, investors and lenders can network and meet leading solar project developers, investors, lenders, utilities, equipment suppliers, construction contractors and other key industry players.

The "Competitive Solar Energy & Finance Solutions for the GCC" is organized in cooperation with the Solar GCC Alliance and supported by the European Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conference and Exhibition (EUPVSEC), International PV Equipment Association (IPVEA), Saudi Arabia Solar Industry Association (SASIA), Emirates Solar Industry Association (ESIA), and the Energy Storage Journal.

Dubai Expo 2020 plans to generate 50 percent of the Expo exhibition's energy needs from renewable sources on site, which will include the first large-scale applications of building-integrated photovoltaic and solar technologies. In addition, 30 percent of the building materials to be used for the 438-hectare site of the Expo exhibition will be made from recycled aggregate content.

In line with these commitments and with the green initiatives pursuant to the Dubai Integrated Energy Strategy 2030, which aims to reduce energy demand in Dubai by 30 percent, the "Competitive Solar Energy & Finance Solutions for the GCC" during WETEX 2014 and the "Solar and Energy Storage Forum 2014" taking place on November 5, 2014, will explore and encourage the best-practice energy conservation strategies across the region.

RBI Solar - Dahlia Has You Covered

RBI Solar - Dahlia Has You Covered

What if you could maximize the Ground Coverage Ratio (GCR) on your next project and not have to worry about the complicated variables that come with a tracker system? With a low tilt and clearance design, Dahlia® has the highest GCR of any fixed-tilt system in the marketplace. The system is available in three tilt options (7.5, 10 and 12.5 degrees) and designed to accommodate any sized PV module. The lightweight system is engineered with fewer components, several of which are shipped to job sites pre-assembled. This design feature reduces freight costs and rapidly trims the amount of on-site installation time required to complete construction. Maximizing PV coverage on a site can lead to an increase of production, which creates greater financial return for project owners. Over 100 MW of Dahlia® projects have been deployed across the United States, in regions of variable snow and wind loads. How much can Dahlia® cover and save you on your next project?
