Real World PV Solar System - Part 2

AltEnergyMag had a residential PV system installed and is monitoring the process as well as the performance. This is part 2 of a series of articles we will publish along the way in order to demonstrate and explain a real world project for our readers to follow and learn from.

Connecting the Sun

Europe's electricity demand is increasing. In the context of Europe's decarbonisation goals, this power will have to come from more variable Renewable Energy Sources. As European policymakers consider their options for invesments in new and more efficient grid infrastructure, they should take into account the benefits that PV is already producing and, more importantly, plan for the greater benefits it is capable of producing in the future.

The National Integration Dataset

The dataset is designed to provide realistic energy production profiles based on wind variability, both for the existing fleet as well as large expansions thereof. One of the main concerns with wind energy is that it is variable, with energy produced only when and where the wind blows.

Fuel Cell Technology for the Future

Compared to other mechanisms that convert chemical energy into electricity, the fuel cell, specifically the solid oxide or ceramic fuel cell, is the most efficient.

Optimism Sets Tone at Solar Power International 2012

With the solar energy industry reporting that the second quarter of 2012 was the second largest quarter in history, there was "tremendous enthusiasm and vitality running through the entire solar industry value chain," said Rhone Resch, president and CEO of SEIA.

Off-Grid - Spice Village Resort, India - Case Study

TeamSustain designed a 65kW battery-based PV system for Spice Village. The system was designed to support the full load of the resort after implementing the energy efficiency measures identified in the energy audit. With the new PV system, the resort will generate enough solar electricity to meet 100% of its power needs.

Money: A New (Decentralized) Shade of Green

Green Banks are essentially clean energy finance banks formed at the federal or state level that operate as public-private financing institutions with the power to raise capital to support clean energy projects through loans and loan guarantees.

From Contaminated to Productive

There are hundreds of thousands of contaminated sites across the country, and every solar or wind project that rises from an industrial wasteland is one that won't be built on unspoiled land, and it is unlikely that there would be public opposition to renewable energy projects on blighted land.

Solar Power Industry Booming -- Except in the Sunshine State

In just three months this year enough solar PV was installed nationwide to power 150,000 homes, while no new coal or nuclear plants came on line.

JA Solar Responds to U.S. Department of Commerce's Final Decision on Anti-Dumping Tariffs on Chinese Solar Products

Under the ruling, solar modules assembled in China from cells produced in third countries do not fall within the scope of the duties.

SHORTLIST ANNOUNCED FOR AWARDS FOR EXCELLENCE IN TURKISH RENEWABLES

The Turkish International Renewable Energy Awards Recognize Projects and Breakthroughs Leading the Next Stage of Turkish Renewables

Europe Sees Solar PV Backsheet Market Falter Due to Economic Recession

The maturing market and struggling national finances are expected to cause global solar backsheet revenues to fall in 2012.

Motech Americas launches UL 1,000 Volt Certified Modules for PV Installations in North America

Increased PV installation power output, Decreased installation costs

New Report: India Needs Concentrated Solar Power to Achieve Safer, More Reliable Energy Future

NRDC-CEEW Report Shows Concentrated Solar Power Valuable in Diversifying India's Over-Stressed Energy Resources

Investors gain access to high return, low risk Renewable Energy Assets as the €500 Million Real Asset Energy Fund accelerates activity in Europe and the United States.

Renewable energy investment opportunities are financially sound and environmentally responsible.
