Clipper Wind to Build Plant in the UK

US wind turbine manufacturer Clipper Wind Power will build a plant in the North East of England to manufacture blades for its planned 10 MW offshore turbines with the help of a government grant. Clipper will occupy the new 4,000 m2 facility, which will be situated on the River Tyne, from the start of April 2010, and the plant will employ 60 people by the end of the year. The government's Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) today announced an award of 4.4 m under its Low Carbon Energy Demonstration (LCED) capital grants scheme for the project, which it hopes will kick-start a domestic turbine industry for the UK offshore market. A fully operational Clipper 10 MW turbine will stand at 175 meters in height, while each blade will be more than 70 meters long and weigh over 30 tonnes.

SolarEdge Technologies - EV Charging Single Phase Inverter

The SolarEdge PV inverter combines sophisticated digital control technology with efficient power SolarEdge's EV charging single phase inverter offers homeowners the ability to charge electric vehicles up to six times faster than a standard Level 1 charger through an innovative solar boost mode that utilizes grid and PV charging simultaneously. This product is the world's first EV charger with an integrated PV inverter. Reducing the hassle of installing separately a standalone EV charger and a PV inverter, the EV charging inverter eliminates the need for additional wiring, conduit and a breaker installation. By installing an EV charger that is integrated with an inverter, no additional dedicated circuit breaker is needed, saving space and ruling out a potential upgrade to the main distribution panel. Whether you own an EV now or just want to be EV-ready, future-proof your home with SolarEdge.
