The Wind operations and maintenance (O&M) industry continues to grow in Europe. The Wind O&M Forum in Hamburg, Feb 19-20 is proof of this evolution as large wind energy companies join as sponsors and exhibitors in order to capitalise on this growth area.
ALT has proven itself to Japan, first by winning the GOOD DESIGN award earlier this year and now by getting PSE certification for its MR16 lights.
NOF Energy, the business support organisation for oil, gas, nuclear and offshore renewables, has named OSBIT Power (OP) as the winner of its Innovation & Technology Award 2012.
A renowned international renewable energy developer and an electric power research institute jointly launched this autumn a 30 MW solar PV project in Alar, Xinjiang. Thanks to Clenergy's efficiency in supplying tailor-made ground mount systems, the project is now in the final phase of construction.
Renewable energy could fully power a large electric grid 99.9 percent of the time by 2030 at costs comparable to today’s electricity expenses, according to new research ("Cost-minimized combinations of wind power, solar power and electrochemical storage, powering the grid up to 99.9% of the time") by the University of Delaware and Delaware Technical Community College. A well-designed combination of wind power, solar power and storage in batteries and fuel cells would nearly always exceed electricity demands while keeping costs low, the scientists found. “These results break the conventional wisdom that renewable energy is too unreliable and expensive,” said co-author Willett Kempton, professor in the School of Marine Science and Policy in UD’s College of Earth, Ocean, and Environment. “The key is to get the right combination of electricity sources and storage — which we did by an exhaustive search — and to calculate costs correctly.” The authors developed a computer model to consider 28 billion combinations of renewable energy sources and storage mechanisms, each tested over four years of historical hourly weather data and electricity demands. The model incorporated data from within a large regional grid called PJM Interconnection, which includes 13 states from New Jersey to Illinois and represents one-fifth of the United States’ total electric grid.
Total energy savings are estimated at about 16,200 megawatts per hour every year, the equivalent of planting more than 65,500 trees.
