Data Rules: Intelligent Solar Trackers Reduce Risk, Downtime and O&M Costs

Developing a predictable O&M strategy at the outset of a project will ensure the bankability and a robust ROI throughout the system's lifetime. Project owners and developers that thoroughly evaluate O&M considerations of their tracker investments will find that the higher energy performance, predictive analytics and long-term reliability of single-axis, self-powered trackers will provide a lower overall levelized cost of energy than fixed-tilt racking or conventional tracking systems.

Why Wind and Solar Are Better Together

Currently, wind generation sites are the cheapest version to build in the United States. Solar tends to be significantly more expensive to develop and construct. Creating one site for both forms is much more affordable, yet offers all the advantages covered above.

Panasonic Joins Push to Put Photovoltaics on More Car Roofs

By Chisaki Watanabe, Emi Nobuhiro, and Kevin Buckland for Bloomberg: The tech giant thinks solar roof panels are the future for hybrids and EVs.

New Biofuel Could Work in Regular Diesel Engines

Edd Gent for Scientific American: The need for specially designed engines to run biodiesel is holding back the technology

Solar panels to be fitted on 250 trains in India

Climate Action UN: According to local reports, Indian Railways will install flexible solar panels and batteries to power lights and fans on board 250 of the network's trains.

Global Wind And Solar Costs To Fall Even Faster, While Coal Fades Even In China And India

This year's forecast from BNEF sees solar energy costs dropping a further 66% by 2040, and onshore wind by 47%, with renewables undercutting the majority of existing fossil power stations by 2030

Future trucks fueled by hydrogen created with solar power: Exhaust? Pure water vapor

Science Daily: Heavy-duty trucks will soon be driving around in Trondheim, Norway, fuelled by hydrogen created with solar power, and emitting only pure water vapour as "exhaust."

Why rising temperatures don't make solar power rise

Isha Salian for San Francisco Chronicle: Sunny skies sound like a positive for energy production, but this week's heatwave in California isn't a boon for solar power.

Why Design Matters for Solar O&M

When evaluating SATs, I want to consider whether the failure of any individual hardware component could threaten the system's overall production. In the case of a decentralized SAT, for example, each row's independent motor is powered by its own dedicated solar panel (with integrated battery backup), making external power cables obsolete.

3 Ways to Prevent a Solavalanche

Because the face of solar panels are fabricated from glass, there's no surface area/friction for snow to grip onto, and nothing to stop it from building up, eventually releasing in an avalanche manner, in the form of what we Alpine-ites like to refer to as a solavalanche.

Can Offshore Wind Power Revive U.S. Ports?

Benjamin Storrow for Scientific American: Massachusetts, New York, New Jersey and Maryland are all eyeing up manufacturing and maintenance businesses that would support wind energy

U.S. Reports a Major Milestone in Wind and Solar Power

Bobby Magill for Scientific American: 10 percent of electricity generated in the country in March came from these renewables

Pika Energy - The Harbor Smart Battery Series: Smart Power on Demand

The Harbor Smart Battery provides clean energy storage with revolutionary simplicity and automated performance.

Energy storage and renewables beyond wind, hydro, solar make up 4% of U.S. power capacity

California leads the United States in capacity of several categories: hydroelectric pumped storage, geothermal, landfill gas, and batteries. Florida leads the country in capacity of municipal solid waste and other waste biomass generators.

Clean-technology Incubator Program Expands Focus Beyond Commercial Buildings

The Innovation Incubator (IN2) is now a $30 million program supporting a technology incubator and provides a platform to support early-stage clean tech startup companies to overcome market gaps by providing access to both technical assistance and project support funding.

LG Solar Unveils NeON R with Enhanced Aesthetics and Energy Savings

LG Solar Unveils NeON R with Enhanced Aesthetics and Energy Savings

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.
