Why Design Matters for Solar O&M

When evaluating SATs, I want to consider whether the failure of any individual hardware component could threaten the system's overall production. In the case of a decentralized SAT, for example, each row's independent motor is powered by its own dedicated solar panel (with integrated battery backup), making external power cables obsolete.

3 Ways to Prevent a Solavalanche

Because the face of solar panels are fabricated from glass, there's no surface area/friction for snow to grip onto, and nothing to stop it from building up, eventually releasing in an avalanche manner, in the form of what we Alpine-ites like to refer to as a solavalanche.

Clean-technology Incubator Program Expands Focus Beyond Commercial Buildings

The Innovation Incubator (IN2) is now a $30 million program supporting a technology incubator and provides a platform to support early-stage clean tech startup companies to overcome market gaps by providing access to both technical assistance and project support funding.

The Future of District Heating

Perhaps one of the primary reasons for district heating systems not being as efficient as they should be is due to a lack of access to data. Effectively, designers specify systems without using any operational data to help inform their decisions.

Talking Intersolar with Bryan Whitton, Darfon Solar

Darfon will be introducing 5 new products this year: H5000, H100, H200, G640 and ComBox. The H5000, our latest hybrid inverter, converts DC power from the PV modules or batteries into AC. Based upon programmed priorities easily set up by the installer, batteries are charged from either the PV array or grid.

U.S. Solar Market Adds 2 Gigawatts of PV in Q1 2017

Utility-scale solar prices fall below $1/watt for first time; capacity expected to triple over next five years.

Target's Latest Solar Installations

In states like California and Massachusetts at least half of all Target stores there will have solar panels by the end of 2017. In California, 150 of our 287 stores will have solar installations by the end of the year.

Talking Intersolar with Denise Hugo, Array Technologies, Inc.

For the first time at Intersolar Europe, Array Technologies' booth will feature our latest DuraTrack HZ v3, which is a 2017 Intersolar AWARD Technology finalist. Visitors can see a full-scale demonstration that will be actively tracking throughout the show.

Talking Intersolar with Jared Wiener, SolarRoofHook

We are introducing a few new products this year. For Asphalt Shingle Roofs, we have a new Low Profile QuickBOLT that simplifies the installation process by removing the height adjustable nature of the original QuickBOLT. We have a new hook for Stone Coated Steel Roofs, as more installers have found customer opportunities with this type of roof. Visit us at Intersolar Booth #9645

How Virtual Power Purchase Agreements (VPPAs) are Solving the Corporate Energy "Trilemma"

In a VPPA, the electricity that's produced is sold into the local grid while the corporate offtaker receives credit for the renewable energy to address the emissions from the electricity consumption from traditional sources.

NASA is testing solar panels that unfurl like Fruit Roll-Ups in space

Sarah Fecht for Popular Science: The experiment is set to fly to the space station this week

Connecting Wind Power with Sensor-2-Server Communication Solutions

S2S is intelligent communication that begins at the sensor level and targets servers for specific reasons. These servers could include anything from a Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) data server that collects and monitors through the SCADA system or a Big Data engine.

Intersolar Q&A with Milton Nogueira of Roof-Tech

Roof Tech will be showcasing the Gen II (Roof Tech's second generation) rail-less PV mounting system with the same Integrated Flashing certified by the ICC (International Code Council), however with fewer parts, more adjustability and an improved 20yr. limited warranty

Reverse mode fuel cells for energy storage

Although it requires the hydrogen handling infrastructure to be set up, the use of fuel cell systems in reversing mode for alternating power storage and power generation within a unique system boundary is a readily available engineering solution to the issues currently connected with distributed energy management.

Intersolar Q&A with Jeff Myles of Rolls Battery

Rolls is excited to announce the expansion of our 5000 Series range with the launch of select premium models with enhanced charge performance and added capacity. With improved charge efficiency at lower voltages, these models require shorter recharge times which is especially beneficial in off-grid renewable energy applications.
