HelioPower Appoints Former SunPower Executive Kent Miller As Executive Vice President of Commercial Sales
Miller builds on solar and related energy industry experience with move to HelioPower
Solar thermal technology is becoming an intrinsic part of heat production both in domestic and industrial applications around the world. Innovative technologies are constantly expanding the fields in which solar thermal energy already finds application, as well as opening up new ones. Current trends and developments of the solar thermal industry are also a focus of the world's largest exhibition for the solar industry, Intersolar Europe, which takes place from June 8 - 10.
MAGE SOLAR exhibits U.S.-produced modules and high-performance product portfolio at Intersolar Europe 2011
From June 8 to 10 the complete system provider displays its ARRA-compliant modules at the world's largest trade show for the solar industry in Munich, Germany
For many industry and government leaders, the evolution to the smart grid seems inevitable. But without similar progress on security, the industry faces major challenges
The CEW 2011 was held in the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre from May 2nd to 7th, 2011. For Clenergy, it was an opportunity to exhibit its latest products, and also to deliver on its solar mission by donating to the Sponsored Installation for CEW to Hartnett House of Melbourne Citymission.
The AltEnergyMag team had the opportunity to walk the expo floor and visit with companies from across the industry for a peak at some of the new products that will be showcased this year. Below is a compilation of some great new products that should be an interest to you.
In India alone, one can observe several cases where bio-energy projects of the scale greater than 5 MW are on sale already, even with their power purchase agreements still in place. Such events necessitate the need to have a mechanism in place which would further seek the promotion of such technologies.
So implementing energy efficiency measures sounds like a good idea in principle, but how can local authorities or municipalities balance the equation of technology costs and fund the capital expenditure? Put simply, some of the measures that can be implemented deliver savings immediately with payback periods that are very short - in some instances only 6 months. However; to address a set of larger scale measures, the answer comprises 3 elements: i) scale of project, ii) guaranteeing savings through energy performance contracting and iii) access to competitive (low interest rate) finance.

Solar cogeneration combines proven photovoltaic (PV) and solar thermal technologies to maximize total collected energy and optimize economic benefits for institutional, commercial and industrial customers. Using up to 80 percent of the sun's delivered energy
Once of the greatest barriers to the adoption of new clean technologies is the upfront cost, with the resulting sticker shock sending consumers running. Many clean tech firms offer attractive financing packages, but fall down on marketing them effectively, or -- on an even more basic level -- adequately explaining them.
Ultrasonic Systems, Inc. (USI), the leading manufacturer of high-performance ultrasonic spray coating equipment for solar, fuel cell, and semiconductor applications, has been awarded a patent for their CAT ILDS series of nozzle-less ultrasonic spray heads.

The U.S. wind industry is growing again after taking a big step backward last year. Yet turbine makers and wind farm developers are finding few reasons to celebrate as the clean energy source struggles to secure long-term government support while facing stiff competition from cheap natural gas. Once the world's top wind market, the United States ceded that mantle to China last year as a weak economy halted its growth and cut new installations to half of the 10,000 megawatts of capacity built in 2009. Since then, business has picked up, but not for the reasons the industry would like. Energy demand is still tepid due to a gurgling economic recovery, and the low cost of natural gas is keeping power prices low. Pricing in long-term power sales contracts signed by wind developers has fallen 30 percent in the last two years and will fall further this year, according to IHS Emerging Energy Research. Currently, the market is being shepherded by developers who are scrambling to put turbines in the ground ahead of a 2013 expiration of lucrative federal tax credits for wind. Beyond that date, the industry's fortunes are hazy.

Solar & Wind - Featured Product
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.
