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.
America spends approximately $1.6 billion on public housing energy payments every year. To put that into perspective, that's equal to: 15.7 percent of the annual budget of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency 95.7 percent of U.S. investment in energy-efficiency and renewable energy programs.
Deerfield Beach (August 16, 2012) – Three years of hard work, dedication to quality and superior performance have landed MSi the coveted award of one of the top 500 fastest growing companies in America. Everything about MSi is HOT – except their light bulbs.
The National Park Service made the decision to install MSi iPAR 38 LED lights to illuminate the Liberty Bell located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. In 2003 the bell was moved into the new Liberty Bell Center, a glass and steel pavilion that allows it to be viewed by the public 24 hours a da
The All-Energy team was in for a real surprise at the Scottish Green Energy Awards, as the show's Project Director, Judith Patten, co-founder of the event was awarded the ‘Outstanding Achievement Award'.

What if you could maximize the Ground Coverage Ratio (GCR) on your next project and not have to worry about the complicated variables that come with a tracker system? With a low tilt and clearance design, Dahlia® has the highest GCR of any fixed-tilt system in the marketplace. The system is available in three tilt options (7.5, 10 and 12.5 degrees) and designed to accommodate any sized PV module. The lightweight system is engineered with fewer components, several of which are shipped to job sites pre-assembled. This design feature reduces freight costs and rapidly trims the amount of on-site installation time required to complete construction. Maximizing PV coverage on a site can lead to an increase of production, which creates greater financial return for project owners. Over 100 MW of Dahlia® projects have been deployed across the United States, in regions of variable snow and wind loads. How much can Dahlia® cover and save you on your next project?
