Increased consumer adoption of renewable-energy technologies has led to a rise in public utilities' use of net energy metering (NEM), a model under which consumers who generate their own electricity earn credit for the power they sell back to the grid.
Phase II of initiative focuses on practical steps toward solar, DER integration
"The path to 24 hours of sun inevitably leads to an intelligent and efficient energy system. We will be presenting this holistic approach in the form of various solutions that contribute to the efficient and intelligent generation, storage, distribution and consumption of solar energy," explains Martin Hackl.
Scientists from the Energy Department's National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), along with their counterparts from solar energy research institutes in Germany and Japan, gathered recently to discuss the future of photovoltaics (PV) and assess its con
VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland and Aalto University investigated how willow biomass can be utilised more efficiently. When processed correctly, willow is eminently suitable as a source of sugar in the production of ethanol. The lignin fraction formed as a by-product of the ethanol process and the fibres and compounds of willow bark are suitable for the manufacture of environmentally friendly chemicals and bio-based materials.
HINESBURG, VT - Vermont Smoke & Cure, maker of delicious smoked meats and meat snacks since 1962, is teaming up again with AllEarth Renewables of Williston, Vt. to source local renewable solar to power the company's electrical needs.
Fluidic Energy Provides Intelligent Energy Storage Systems for "100 Communities" Renewable Energy Project in Africa
This collaboration will provide a renewable energy-based turn-key mini-grid solution to 100 remote villages and communities with more than 400,000 people who currently do not have access to reliable electricity. Minister of Energy H.E. Gatien Horace was in attendance for the signing of the MOU in Antananarivo, Madagascar.

Smarter Grid Solutions to Demonstrate Massive Clean Energy Deployment on a Smart Campus in NREL INTEGRATE project
Smarter Grid Solutions is deploying a fully-operational Active Network Management system in North America as part of its ongoing work under the National Renewable Energy Laboratory's (NREL's) 'Integrated Network Testbed for Energy Grid Research and Technology Experimentation' (INTEGRATE) project. The three phase project demonstrates how to increase electric grid hosting capacity for Distributed Energy Resources (DER).
Yaskawa - Solectria Solar, the leading U.S. commercial PV inverter manufacturer, announced today that its three-phase, transformerless PVI 28TL inverters were installed at the Goodyear Rubber Manufacturing Facility in Rancho Cucamonga, California. The 1MW solar array is comprised of over 3,000 solar modules powered by 33 Solectria PVI 28TL inverters and cover the main manufacturing plant and five parking canopies. The Goodyear Rubber Rancho Cucamonga facility was built in 1961 and the Company is an offshoot of the original Goodyear Rubber Company established in 1872.
