AWEA applauds California’s determination to further cut carbon pollution

“As California continues its international leadership on one of the greatest challenges of our time, the American Wind Energy Association applauds Gov. Brown and Sen. De Leon for taking this bold and necessary step to cut carbon pollution."

SACRAMENTO, CA - California's decision today to cut its greenhouse gas emissions further, to 40 percent below 1990 levels by 2030, won praise from the American Wind Energy Association (AWEA) as "a bold and necessary step."


Tom Darin, AWEA's Western State Policy Senior Director, cited California Gov. Jerry Brown and Senate President Pro Tem Kevin De Leon's leadership on the state's decision:

"As California continues its international leadership on one of the greatest challenges of our time, the American Wind Energy Association applauds Gov. Brown and Sen. De Leon for taking this bold and necessary step to cut carbon pollution.

"The wind industry looks forward to working with the state's administration and legislature to deploy more wind power as a critical part of a clean technology portfolio that can help meet this goal affordably. Working together and across multiple technologies, we can produce reliable and cost-effective clean energy, attract billions in economic investment, and create thousands of jobs throughout California."

Dynapower - MAXIMIZE PRODUCTION AND REVENUES WITH SOLAR PLUS STORAGE

The addition of energy storage to an existing or new utility-scale PV installation allows system owners and operators the opportunity to capture additional revenues. Traditional storage plus solar applications have involved the coupling of independent storage and PV inverters at an AC bus or the use of multi-input hybrid inverters. An alternative approach - coupling energy storage to PV arrays with a DC-to-DC converter - can help maximize production and profits for existing and new utility-scale installations. DC-Coupled Utility-Scale Solar Plus Storage leads to higher round-trip efficiencies and lower cost of integration with existing PV arrays and at the same time, opens up new revenue streams not possible with traditional AC-coupled storage, including clipping recapture and low voltage harvesting, while being eligible for valuable tax incentives.
