While energy from wind turbines currently accounts for less than one percent of total power generated in Japan, the new breakthrough in design provides ample reason to ramp up production. Called the 'Windlens,' Yuji Ohya, a professor of renewable energy dynamics and applied mechanics, and his team at Kyushu University have created a series of turbines that could make the cost of wind power less than coal and nuclear energy. The two major concerning issues with traditional turbines have been their general inefficiency and intolerable noise. However, Kyushu's researchers found that attaching an inward curving ring around the perimeter of a turbine's blades increases the focus of airflow faster through the blade zones at two to three times the speed as before. An improvement in safety from covering the outer edges of the blades and a reduction of the dreaded noise pollution of older models is just a bonus.

Mumbai, India and Pforzheim/Freiburg, Germany, December 09, 2011 – On December 14, Intersolar India once again opens its doors to the solar industry. In just its third year, the event is already India's largest exhibition for solar technology. The accompany-ing Intersolar India Conference kicks off one day ahead of the exhibition at the Leela Kempinski Hotel in Mumbai, and runs until December 15, 2011, continuing at the Bombay Exhibition Centre (BEC) for the final day. Around 100 speakers from industry, politics, research and associations and around 700 participants from all over the world are expected at the conference. The event shines a light on hot topics from the photovoltaics and solar thermal industries. In addition to presenting international views on markets and technologies, the program of events focuses on the challenges and trends in the Indian market. The conference covers topics such as project development, project management, construction and operation of photovoltaic plants, as well as compliance and monitoring of set quality standards.

The NeON R module features "Back Contact" cell technology delivering an entirely black panel that is aesthetically pleasing and energy efficient. The cell's seamless, surface blends perfectly into nearly all rooftop designs while the module's electrodes are positioned on the rear of the cell. Using LG's N-type cell structure, the panels produce 365W of energy, up to 7.3kWp, compared to 5.8kWp of the p-type cell. The module's new design minimizes LID, thereby delivering a longer lifespan and increased energy output.
