High-growth companies in the clean energy industry throughout the Midwest seeking venture capital to advance their ideas are now being invited to apply for the opportunity to present their business plans to an audience of the nation's top venture capitalists.
During the test, the modules were exposed to an atmosphere of highly corrosive water and salt for 100 hours in order to verify their durability and correct operation in case they were installed in the proximity of the sea. The test assesses both the compatibility of the materials and the quality and uniformity of the protective layers.
Siemens is increasing its stake in Britain's Marine Current Turbines Ltd. to 45 percent. "With this increase in its stake, Siemens is strengthening its activities in ocean power generation. We will actively shape the commercialization process of innovative marine current power plants," said Michael Axmann, CFO of the newly founded Solar & Hydro Division within Siemens' Energy Sector. Financial details of the deal are not disclosed.

Report by international hydrogen association details current hydrogen and fuel cell activity and predicts significant growth by the next decade
The Optical Cavity Furnace is a new piece of equipment for making solar cells that is about to rock the photovoltaic industry by slashing costs and increasing efficiency. The news should not just excite tech nerds—by reducing the cost of producing solar cells by nearly three-quarters, this new technology represents another big step on the path to making clean energy the cheap kind of energy. Here’s how it works. By using optics to more efficiently focus visible and infrared light, the Optical Cavity Furnace can heat silicon wafers used in solar cell production much more precisely and uniformly than previous forms of solar cell manufacture. The resulting solar cells are stronger, more efficient, and have fewer impurities. The National Renewable Energy Lab, or NREL, the DOE office responsible for the research, and a corporate partner AOS Inc. are now working to bring this technology to scale. The partners plan to build an industrial-scale Optical Cavity Furnace capable of producing 1,200 highly efficient solar cells per hour. NREL has cooperative research agreements with many of the country’s biggest solar cell producers.

The IMO FireRaptor provides three forms of Solar Panel Rapid Shutdown to ZERO VOLTS in case of fire or other emergency: Manual Panel Shutdown to 0V Operated from Ground Level, Automatic Panel Shutdown to 0V at >85Â°C (185Â°F) Temperature, and an automatic Panel Shutdown to 0V on External Power Loss. The FireRaptor can be installed without any set-up and with any string inverter as its functionality is completely independent. "Plug & Play" style installation using industry standard connectors is easy, whether fitted to new installs or retrofitted to existing projects to upgrade fire safety functionality. Meeting NEC2017's regulation to switch DC current at the PV panel in under 30 seconds, FireRaptor is remains one of the safest and most effective means of isolating DC current at the source, and the only rapid shutdown with a 20 year warranty.
