Siemens Energy has been awarded a contract to provide long-term maintenance services at Algeria's first solar-combined cycle hybrid power plant. The order was placed by Abengoa for its 150 megawatt (MW) solar hybrid plant operating at the Hassi R'Mel natural gas field in northern Algeria. The contract includes preventative and corrective maintenance for two SGT-800 gas turbines, which Siemens installed in April 2011. The service contract for the gas turbines will help to ensure long-term reliability and predictable maintenance costs for Abengoa at Hassi R'Mel, one of the world's most innovative power stations.
The Smart Junction Box allows for wireless communication with a central unit that can track the panels on their individual performance and allows the panels or its substrings to be quickly switched off in the case of failure, fire, tornado or other calamity.

Today an increasing amount of intermittent PV electricity is being pumped into the grid. As grid capacity nears its limits, the issue of grid compatibility is gaining in significance. Solar-farm owners must prove that - once connected to the electricity grid - their plants will behave in the same manner as conventional power stations have done for years. Failure to ensure solid preparation of the comprehensive certifications required in this context may delay the launch of service for their solar power system.

Structural batteries are sheets of carbon-composite material that can be molded into complex 3-D shapes to form the actual structure of a device. Thus, the rear wing of a racing car becomes an in-built battery, a torch is its own power source, and the fabric of a tent can capture solar energy.
