SunSpec Relaunching 2014 Solar Securitization & Grid Control Symposium in Webinar Format

Speakers will explore how asset-backed securitization may give the solar industry access to a much broader pool of investor.

SCOTTS VALLEY, CA, APRIL 17, 2014 -- The SunSpec Alliance, a trade group of distributed energy industry participants, announced today that its 2014 Solar Securitization & Grid Control Symposium, originally scheduled for April 22, is being relaunched in webinar format to increase speaker-and-audience interaction and to broaden the reach of the group's message.


The Solar Securitization & Grid Control webinars will address how the overall value equation is impacted by securitizing and grid control of distributed energy. Speakers will explore how asset-backed securitization may give the solar industry access to a much broader pool of investors, ultimately helping to cut the long-term cost of capital, reduce energy costs, and enhance liquidity in the solar project market.

Additional symposium details will be released as they become available.

Kipp & Zonen - DustIQ the novel soiling monitoring solution for solar panels

Soiling of the panel glass is one of the major problems in the rapidly expanding solar energy market, with the attendant loss of efficiency and reduction in performance ratios. Now, there's a new, simple and very cost-effective alternative. Based on Kipp & Zonen's unique Optical Soiling Measurement (OSM) technology, DustIQ can be easily added to new or existing solar arrays and integrated into plant management systems. The unit is mounted to the frame of a PV panel and does not need sunlight to operate. It continuously measures the transmission loss through glass caused by soiling, so that the reduction in light reaching the solar cells can be calculated.
