Berkeley Lab's "Utility-Scale Solar 2016" Finds Solar Power Increasingly Competitive

While focused on key developments in 2016, this report explores trends in deployment and project design, installed project prices, operating costs, capacity factors, and power purchase agreement (PPA) prices among both utility-scale photovoltaic (PV) and concentrating solar thermal power (CSP) projects.

Interview with Jason Slattery, Director of Solar at GEM Energy

Most of our customers see annual savings a 20% or more. Additionally, many of them also select a third-party-financing option, allowing them to not use any of their own money to develop and build the solar array.

Europe Could Attract $417 Billion With Higher Wind-Power Target

Jess Shankleman for Bloomberg Technology: The European Union may create 716,000 jobs with a target for member states to produce 35 percent of their energy from renewables within 12 years.

Yet Another Energy Storage Breakthrough Coming, Thanks To "Weirdly Exciting" New Substance

Tina Casey for CleanTechnica: Bijel is short for "bicontinuous jammed emulsion gels." If that sounds somewhat mysterious, it's really not. You can almost DIY your own bijel right at the dinner table. Here's the explainer from Berkeley Lab:

IoT and Utilities: What's Hype? What's Real Change? ... and What You Need to Know

Instead of thinking in old world terms like Operational and Business support applications and systems, the era of Digital Support Systems powered by Smart Data has arrived. Achieving profitable transformation and commercial success depends on providing the right answers.

Britain opens first subsidy-free solar power farm

Easy monitoring with weather sensors from Lufft

Easy monitoring with weather sensors from Lufft

Professional weather sensors form the heart of large solar plants supporting their operation and performance. Lufft was the first manufacturer to combine several sensors in one housing, bringing the largest multiparameter weather sensor family with 19 members into being. Many of them are well-suited for solar site assessment and continuous monitoring. The most commonly used one is the WS600 delivering data on temperature, air pressure, wind, relative humidity and precipitation. Through its open protocol, it can easily be attached to radiation sensors e.g. from Kipp&Zonen. Other models have an integrated Silicon, Second Class or Secondary Standard radiation sensor.
