In response to evolving market conditions, Natural Power has launched a new department, 'Advisory and Analytics', which brings together the best of its due diligence, market analysis and resource analysis teams.
Hawaii's PUC allowed the utilities to end their popular net metering programs and replace them with the Customer Self Supply program. The CSS program requires zero exportation of self-generated power back to the grid, which can most-efficiently be accomplished by integrating battery storage into the system.
The Mashiki plant achieved commercial operation in June 2017. Powered by Canadian Solar's high-efficiency MaxPower modules, the plant is expected to generate approximately 57,000 MWh of clean, solar electricity per year, which will be purchased by Kyushu Electric Power Co., Inc. under a 20-year feed-in-tariff contract at the rate of JPY36.0 ($0.32) per kWh.
Dom Galeon for Futurism: "An informed understanding of the potential future costs of electricity storage technologies is essential to quantify their uptake as well as the uptake of low-carbon technologies reliant on storage," the researchers wrote.
EcoFoot5D Delivers 18.4% More Power 10-Degree Systems
We use AI to protect and optimize critical assets - that goes for both cyber and physical. Our predictive analytics platform lets users take massive amounts of data and, in an automated fashion, quickly build models to find meaning in it, thereby significantly improving maintenance strategies and costs.
The Market Analysis Platform ("MAP") is a software package that provides insight to potential buyers and others on where wind and solar power purchase agreements are more likely to be economically attractive.
"This financial reinforcement is good for our customers and suppliers alike," Stein said. "It means quite simply that we can reassure our business partners that we will remain a reliable force not only in supplying leading solar technology but also in continuing to fight for fair trade in the U.S. market and improving market conditions there."
Polysilicon prices in China stagnate this week as the suppliers and the buyers hit a stalemate. As Chinese suppliers consider that current demand is solid, they still intend to boost the prices even though the attempts have not yet succeeded. Also, as expected ramp-up by new entrants are deferred and yearly maintenance are scheduled by some suppliers, the restraint in supply have strengthened suppliers attitude to hold the prices at current level. On the other hand, buyers are asking for price discounts as facing huge pressures from the downstream since the demand is not as robust. Therefore, the stalemate has kept the prices in China immobile this week. On the other hand, polysilicon prices slides on oversupply and the recovery seems impossible since the utilization rates of downstream wafer suppliers remain low in overseas market.
Power Factors, an industry-leading software provider for monitoring, managing, and optimizing renewable energy assets, announced Thursday that it was selected as the recipient of an award by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) SunShot Initiative.
Chris Martin for Bloomberg: The U.S. Energy Department awarded $46.2 million in research grants to improve solar energy technologies and reduce costs to 3 cents per kilowatt-hour by 2030.
Leading EPC Selects SMA to Maximize Plant Performance

Solar & Wind - Featured Product
EDF Renewables offers the same innovative solutions that maximize the performance of our own 5.2 GW of installed projects. Because we're not an equipment manufacturer, our recommendations are transparent and data-driven. We cover the entire project lifecycle: from pre-commissioning support, through warranty and post warranty operation, to late stage and decommissioning.
