Aquamarine Power today announces that following a strategic review of the business, it has decided to focus its efforts on the development and commercialisation of its market leading Oyster® Wave Energy Converter. Further development of its tidal stream device, Neptune' will cease.
The Luther (OK) Public Schools are implementing more than $800,000 in facility upgrades to improve operations and efficiency at district buildings. TAC, the building management and energy services business of Schneider Electric, guarantees the district will lower utility costs by $20,429 annually.
Thin-film PV solutions differ based on the type of semiconductor material chosen to act as a sunlight absorbing layer, and also on the type of substrate on which the sunlight absorbing layer is affixed.
The Castilla la Mancha Government's Vice President and Economy Adviser, MŞ Luisa Araujo Chamorro, will inaugurate the second edition of CPVToday's Concentrated Photovoltaic Summit to be held in Toledo, Spain next month.
The high cost of heating water in hotels, restaurants, health care facilities and other big users may now be cut drastically with a geothermal heat pump.
The Institute of Rural Research and Development (IRRAD) is an initiative of S.M. Sehgal Foundation working on poverty reduction in rural villages in the State of Haryana, India. IRRAD's campus, which resides among some of the ultra-modern high rises of Gurgaon, meets the standards of the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System'. It generates 35Kw of solar energy on-site, enough for all the electricity requirements of the building except air-conditioning.
America's electric power grid is subject to immense inefficiencies that arise from the interplay between centralized power generation, local power consumption and on demand utility service.
Remember the First law of thermodynamics? Energy can neither be created nor destroyed. It can only change forms. Or, if translated into an idiot-proof rule of thumb: you can't go above 100%. Remember this? Now forget it; this law has got a loophole.
The term micro grid is mentioned more and more in publications on distributed generation. It generally means a collection of consumers, generators and potential energy storage entities connected together and operated as a small grid which is connected to the main grid, but capable of operating a self-sufficient island. The micro grid is typically linked to the grid with the help of a switch, which allows it to work both in grid-connected as well as island mode. However, island operation is not currently permitted in the majority of countries.
The electric motor gave the car a very smooth acceleration, with gear changes needed less often than I'm used to, and a very smooth delivery of power. The electric motor also seemed to smooth the gear changes so rather than the jerky transition you can get when accelerating and changing gear, it was altogether a more refined experience.
A group of Spanish developers working under the company name Ecofasa, headed by chief executive officer and inventor Francisco Angulo, has developed a biochemical process to turn urban solid waste into a fatty acid biodiesel feedstock.
What follows is not meant to bash EVs, plug-ins or biofuels. And yes, hydrogen faces substantial challenges, chief among them vehicle cost and fueling infrastructure. But we need to be honest about all the options, or risk falling down the rabbit hole with Alice.
We hope this short overview of N2Solar will give a good sense of what we are about, can accomplish in the markets, and the needs to get there. We welcome your questions and look forward to discussing the merits of our projects and how outside financial participation could benefit..
There are primarily three challenges to making the smart grid a reality: the economy; understanding the benefits of large-scale solar power; and how energy systems can be leveraged to deliver value well beyond the transmission of power.

The NeON R module features "Back Contact" cell technology delivering an entirely black panel that is aesthetically pleasing and energy efficient. The cell's seamless, surface blends perfectly into nearly all rooftop designs while the module's electrodes are positioned on the rear of the cell. Using LG's N-type cell structure, the panels produce 365W of energy, up to 7.3kWp, compared to 5.8kWp of the p-type cell. The module's new design minimizes LID, thereby delivering a longer lifespan and increased energy output.
