Mazda Combustion Technology News Sends Jolt Through Electric Car Industry

John Harrington for 247WallStreet: Mazda said in a press release that the engine technology will be up to 30% more efficient than the carmaker's conventional systems. It hopes to have the system ready for 2019 models.

Musk's Tesla Is Promising the World Clean Energy One Loss at a Time

Archimedes once remarked that if given a lever of sufficient length and a fulcrum against which to place it, he could move the world. Musk's first Gigafactory, aptly (if unimaginatively) named 'Gigafactory 1' is a Nevada-based production facility tasked with nothing less than shifting the world toward clean energy.

Energy Internet - A Dream or Reality

Energy Internet is the idea initiated by the China Government and like the information internet, the Energy Internet will be another energy revolution after Information technology revolution.

Sono Motors unveils its solar and battery-powered electric car

Fred Lambert for Electrek: German electric car startup Sono Motors unveiled the crowdfunded prototype of its battery and solar-powered vehicle; the Sion.

Panel beaters: Australia utilities branch out as customers shift to solar

Sonali Paul for Reuters: One of Australia's leading power suppliers, AGL Energy (AGL.AX), has offered cheap batteries to 1,000 homes with solar panels as part of what it describes as the world's biggest "virtual power plant" in Adelaide, South Australia, a state plagued by blackouts over the past year.

Power Conversion Technology

High-performance and flexible multiport power converters will be a key enabling component for solar-plus-storage adoption, and deployment. The power conversion system is critical when implementing solar coupled with storage, as the efficiency of conversion will come into play at several stages throughout the system: PV to grid, PV to battery, and battery to grid.

Dynapower - MAXIMIZE PRODUCTION AND REVENUES WITH SOLAR PLUS STORAGE

Dynapower - MAXIMIZE PRODUCTION AND REVENUES WITH SOLAR PLUS STORAGE

The addition of energy storage to an existing or new utility-scale PV installation allows system owners and operators the opportunity to capture additional revenues. Traditional storage plus solar applications have involved the coupling of independent storage and PV inverters at an AC bus or the use of multi-input hybrid inverters. An alternative approach - coupling energy storage to PV arrays with a DC-to-DC converter - can help maximize production and profits for existing and new utility-scale installations. DC-Coupled Utility-Scale Solar Plus Storage leads to higher round-trip efficiencies and lower cost of integration with existing PV arrays and at the same time, opens up new revenue streams not possible with traditional AC-coupled storage, including clipping recapture and low voltage harvesting, while being eligible for valuable tax incentives.
