Will You Survive Solar Grid Parity?

A path to ensure profitable installation for residential solar

Shaw Lynds, Senior Research at Maxwell Technologies, Inc Explains Ultracapacitors

In general, ultracapacitors are great solutions whenever the power demand is high, but the duration is short. For example, we are expanding into the diesel truck market, where the high power demand of engine starting can place a great strain on the batteries, greatly lowering their useful life.

Adding the battery back-up power option to existing grid-tied PV/solar systems

Using battery-based off-grid technology, a smarter type of "grid/hybrid" inverter technology is able to use PV, wind, hydro-electric and other renewable DC energy sources to keep the batteries charged and sell the excess to the grid, just like the grid-tied unit using the grid as its battery.

Paradise Off the Grid

Residents of a small town in Baja California live off-grid using solar power, and enjoy a lifestyle that continues to attract new homeowners.

Lithium-ion batteries for efficient storage of renewable energy and mobile power solutions

Lithium-ion technology is currently more economically and environmentally viable than other existing battery technologies. It will likely be both the present and the future of sustainable storage of renewable energy and mobile power solutions.

Plant Expansion at Surrette Battery Company

The plant upgrades and streamlined floor plan allow for and estimated increase in throughput of 30%. Automated equipment speeds up production and efficiency, reducing lead times and allowing us to get the product out the door to our distributors more effectively.

Grid-Tie Power Systems: Do You Need Battery Back-Up?

With most power outages only lasting a few hours, the PS1's battery bank can keep your vital loads running until grid-supplied power is available again.

Transportation for a Clean Planet

Since successful testing in 2003, ISE has incorporated ultracapacitors into its gasoline, diesel and fuel-cell hybrid electric vehicles with extraordinary results.

Ultracapacitors Double Life of Wave Measurement Buoys

By working together with a primary battery, the ultracapacitors have helped to at least double the lifetime, which means that battery life no longer determines the service interval for the buoy.

ULTRACAPACITORS -Used in Hybrid-Electric Drive Systems

Batteries have high-energy capability while ultracapacitors have high power capability. In an optimal hybrid storage system, both technologies could be combined in a way that maximizes the benefits of both.

ULTRACAPACITORS AND THE HYBRID ELECTRIC VEHICLE

Compact in size, ultracapacitors can store an incomparably higher amount of energy than conventional capacitors. Indeed, ultracapacitors are currently available on the market with capacitance ranges up to 2700 Farads, and they can release that energy at both a high or low rate.

Reliable Pitching: Ultracapacitors And Wind Turbine Pitch Systems

Ultracapacitors prove to be a high-reliability solution for the severe power pulses needed for wind turbine pitch control.
