Real World PV Solar System Installation - Part 1

AltEnergyMag is having a residential PV system installed and monitoring the process. This is part 1 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.

Nuclear Fusion

Research into controlled fusion, with the aim of producing fusion power for the production of electricity, has been conducted for over 60 years. It has been accompanied by extreme scientific and technological difficulties, but has resulted in progress. At present, controlled fusion reactions have been unable to produce break-even (self-sustaining) controlled fusion reactions. Workable designs for a reactor that theoretically will deliver ten times more fusion energy than the amount needed to heat up plasma to required temperatures (see ITER) were originally scheduled to be operational in 2018, however this has been delayed and a new date has not been stated.

SMART GRID SECURITY: A PAN EUROPEAN PERSPECTIVE

The maturity of the smart grid security in Europe could be evaluated as medium to low; that is what our study demonstrated. We are still trying to find out how to implement the smart grid on our electricity power infrastructure, after which we would conceive how the security should be applied. This is not a good approach, we need to define what instruments we should use (requirements for smart grids) in the smart grid before any other action can be taken into account.

Adept Robotics for the Solar Industry

Today's ultra-thin solar cells require precise and gentle handling. And with the increasing demand on solar manufacturers for product, automation must deliver the highest throughput possible. Adept Robotics for the Solar Industry

Don't Give Up Yet: US Solar Companies can Compete with China with a Bit of Innovation

In the end, it will be Chinese cash and American access to (massive) Chinese consumers for clean-energy products that saves the industry and allows it to gain a competitive edge over fossil fuels.

Energy: A Citizen's Solutions Guide

"Energy: A Citizens' Solutions Guide" is one of a series of unbiased, nonpartisan guides that help the public wrestle with and work through difficult issues. These guides are especially useful in advance of the election, to help voters cut through campaign spin and media bias, so that they are able to reasonably judge the platforms put forth by candidates.

Energy through Hydrogen

In many ways, hydrogen is the perfect fuel. It's abundant, efficient and produces no emissions when used in a fuel cell. It can be produced from renewable resources and is not a greenhouse gas. Because hydrogen power is environmentally friendly and non-toxic to use, industry should accelerate research so that this renewable resource may be used in the near future.

Geothermal Manifold Installation with a Professional Touch

The GeoCal™ is a breeze to install and gives a lot of flexibility as the automatic air vents and supply and return temperature gauges are a couple of added plusses. With this first one up and running, and the customer satisfied, I'll be evaluating how it holds up.

Solar Shade Ideas - Pergola

This system looks great and makes the perfect shade spot for their patio barbecue (this is a system in the 2KW range).

Corruption and Mismanagement See Much of the US without Power

Americans are now being told that keeping utility bills down means keeping maintenance of the country's dismal electricity distribution system to a bare minimum. According to the American Society of Civil Engineers, the entire system could collapse by 2020 without an immediate investment of $673 billion. Furthermore, experts say that brownouts and blackouts will end up costing more in the end than re-hauling the entire system.

The Birth of After-Market Consumer Electric Drive

You climb in and start your car. Reverse out of your driveway using the gas-powered system. Putting the shift lever into neutral, the system switches over to the AED (Alternative Electric Drive) system, yet your engine is idling. This allows you to use your power brakes, power steering and air-conditioner on that hot muggy day.

Utility Dive - App for Energy Executives

We try to pull together everything that an energy and utility executive needs to know. This includes news, breaking commentary from twitter, jobs, market and commodity updates, jobs, white papers, market research, and more.

GENERATING BUSINESS AT SOLAR POWER INTERNATIONAL

SPI is presented by the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) and Solar Electric Power Association (SEPA). Unlike other solar conferences, all proceeds support the expansion of the U.S. solar energy market through SEIA's and SEPA's year-round research and education activities, as well as SEIA's advocacy.

Clean Power Finance Launches CPF Capital & Trading Service

Provides liquidity in SREC markets to make residential solar financing more attractive

SunSpec Certified gateways will be available for all Solectria Renewables' commercial and utility-scale three-phase inverters beginning in the fourth quarter of 2012; existing sites can be upgraded subsequently.

Exhibitors wishing to make preliminary enquiry should register their interest with Kelly Willett, CEDIA's Expo Manager at their earliest opportunity

OMG Roofing Products  - PowerGrip Universal

OMG Roofing Products - PowerGrip Universal

Eliminate Solar Rack Ballast and Reduce Rooftop Material Handling. PowerGrip™ Universal (PGU) is a commercial roof mount system designed to secure solar racks and other equipment to any type of commercial roofing system. PGU provides a secure connection directly to the roof deck or structural members and is designed to reduce or eliminate ballast in solar racking systems, so there's less weight on the roof and less material handling. Made of heavy-duty cast aluminum, PGU units include a base ring which is secured through the roofing cover and into the structural roof deck, and a waterproof top plate.
