Sustainable building designs such as rooftop wind turbines, motion-sensor lighting and low-flow water fixtures help give Ecotech this high honor
WAILUKU, MAUI, HAWAII: Maui-based HNU ENERGY has commenced installing the largest solar PV installation to date in South Maui at Premier Place in Maui's Research & Technology Park. The sleek, black glass clad, Class A office building at 535 Lipoa Parkway is home to prime tenants Boeing and the US Air Force who support computer intensive, mission critical satellite tracking capabilities on Haleakala summit. Thanks to HNU ENERGY, over half the energy consumed at Premier Place will come from a clean, safe, state of the art renewable solar PV system.
SkyFuel and Braxenergy agreed to cooperate to bring concentrating solar power to the Brazilian market. SkyFuel manufactures a high efficiency, low cost parabolic trough concentrator. Braxenergy has over 3 GW of renewable energy projects in Brazil. The 50 MW Coremas plant in Northeast Brazil.

Developers of the giant Blythe Solar Power Project in California have switched from solar thermal technology to photovoltaic solar panels, one of a string of similar changes at large-scale solar projects. Solar Millennium today said that the first 500-megawatt phase of the Blythe plant will use photovoltaic (PV) panels because the economics work better. The company earlier this year had received a conditional loan guarantee from the Department of Energy to develop a concentrating solar thermal plant, where heat from mirrored troughs makes steam which is passed through a turbine to generate electricity. But Germany-based Solar Millennium and its US subsidiary said it will use commercial financing and PV technology instead. Seven other utility-scale solar projects in the southwest U.S. have decided to scrap concentrating solar power (CSP) for PV. All told, that's about 2,515 megawatts of solar capacity that has converted, according to GTM Research analyst Brett Prior. The moves underscore how falling costs have improved the competitiveness of PV for large-scale projects. Solar PV prices have fallen by more than 50 percent over the last two years, making them more attractive to both the energy developer and institutions putting up the money to finance these projects.
