Hypothetical Global Grid

The reason for a Global Grid will be the gathering of remote renewable sources. Its main infrastructure will be high-capacity long transmission lines. Wind farms and solar power plants will provide distribution centers with green power over long distances.

Going With the Flow on Long-Duration Energy Storage

An ideal long-duration storage technology is one that is cheap, safe and lasts a "utility lifetime" (20+ years) without degradation. In that regard, flow batteries represent a commercially viable solution.

Global Containerized Solar Generators Market: Government Investment for Development in Renewable Energy Bolsters the Growth of Market

According to a report published by Transparency Market Research, the global containerized solar generators market is likely to expand at a CAGR of 7.3% during the assessed period 2017-2025. By the end of the forecast period the market is likely to be valued at US$570.9mn.

Microgrids in Sub-Saharan Africa

We were thrilled to announce last month that our first two microgrid solar photovoltaic (PV) plants, outfitted with the innovative new Renewvia mobile payment platform, were successfully up and running on the Islands of Ndeda and Ringiti in Kenya's Lake Victoria region.

Importance of Energy Efficient Lighting for On-Site Work

Technologies that enable more energy efficient lighting are now widely available. Management and maintenance of lighting equipment can also help make it more efficient.

Can Solar Panels Be Recycled?

If you anticipate your solar company to thrive for the next two decades, it's time to begin thinking about the responsibility we have to ensure modules stay out of our nation's landfills.

O&M Considerations for Residential and C&I Rooftop Solar

This white paper aims to provide an overview of the US utility rooftop solar market, and the main challenges it faces in terms of O&M

How Does Heat Affect Solar Inverters?

Inverters, like all semiconductor-based equipment, are sensitive to overheating and, in general, operate best at cooler temperatures, while suffering power losses and damage at higher internal temperatures.

What Are the Benefits of a National Energy Grid?

Whether it's saving every electricity customer money or hardening our infrastructure against climate change, it's hard to imagine another project right now that looks as appealing, practical and unifying as developing a national energy grid.

When Cars Think for Us: Autonomous Vehicles and the Role of Energy Storage

In this article, I discuss the primary reasons why autonomous vehicles are emerging, what factors go into developing self-driving cars, and how energy storage is a vital part of autonomous vehicle design.

How to Lower Customer Acquisition Costs

Gone are the days of block walking and door knocking for new customers or paying for old leads. Instead, social media and customer generated reviews are lowering the cost of getting local and interested prospects asking about solar.

Case Study: Increasing Solar Inspection Efficiency with Drones

Comparing drone inspection time to relevant manual inspections across the 4 sites, we saw an increase in inspection efficiency of 97%. On a per MWdc basis, cost savings due to efficiency gains ranged from $1074 to $1717 per MW, for an average of $1254/MW cost savings.

Are Sulfur Flow Batteries the Answer?

In a flow battery, both the anode and cathode are liquid electrolytes. The anode in this case is sulfur dissolved in water, while the cathode is an aerated liquid salt solution that takes up and releases oxygen.

The Race for Battery Manufacturing Capacity: Ultra-Fast Charging Potential

Speculation on what the loss of control of battery manufacturing capacity could mean for western nations is rife. From limited access to affordable and sustainable EV's due to lack of battery supply, to potential loss of control over the critical resource of energy storage.
