The pressroom is a concrete building built in the late 1970's. The roof was old and flat. A traditional ballasted mounting system, with its added weight, wasn't an option-- the old roof would have collapsed. Mark Stahl the operations manager of Astralux Power needed a different kind of a solution.
Alice Springs, Australia, with around 300 days of sunshine every year, is an ideal test location for solar power installations. The Desert Knowledge Australia (DKA) Solar Centre is a government-funded public showcase of solar installations, demonstrating a range of solar power technologies from many of the world's leading manufacturers.
Mr. Deep Chakraborty currently CEO of Centrosolar America, Inc. since January 2010, was until recently Vice President of the parent Group in Munich, Germany. At Centrosolar, Deep has focused on a fast ramp-up of the US business: launching Centrosolar-branded products, growing the sales and engineering organization and launching a systems-based approach to Centrosolar's product offering in the North American market.
Using natural gas to produce oil from tar sands is akin to turning gold into lead.
DTE Energy have held Alt energy conferences for some 16 years now and 6 years ago teamed up with the Engineering Society of Detroit to produce the Alternative energy conference for the State. They are currently involved in some large installations of solar powered arrays for factories at the moment.
Editorial Comments for the December eMagazine issue
I started my sustainability project with a theme, "Grow What You Can Eat." It was my hope to use natural free resources water and solar energy to live a more sustainable lifestyle. Though the progress may be slow, I am proud to see the changes that my neighbors and other communities have made in realizing the value of this global issue to be solved by each one of us. As a specialist in the education and implementation of water conservation and rain water harvesting, we all should take small steps with end goal of someday achieving total sustainability.
On May 4th, the 115 year old Engineering Society of Detroit held its 18th Annual Michigan Energy Conference and Exhibition subtitled "Save Money Now: Strategies for Energy Efficiency."
The pace of the European solar photovoltaic (PV) market in the first half of 2010 was dominated by the impending mid-year incentive tariff reductions in Germany and conditioned by the lower module pricing that emerged through 2009, according to the latest from Solarbuzz® in Europe PV Markets 2010.
Developing economic well-being and preserving a healthy environment are not opposed forces but do, on the contrary, have a primary relationship and require a similar way of thinking: maximizing the efficiency of a product over its life cycle will minimize its total financial cost as well as the total environmental impact over its life cycle.
Solimpeks, Turkey's largest thermal and hybrid collector manufacturer, recently implemented a drain meander system in the city of Izmir successfully.

The SolarEdge PV inverter combines sophisticated digital control technology with efficient power conversion architecture to achieve superior solar power harvesting and best-in-class reliability. The fixed-voltage technology ensures the solar inverter is always working at its optimal input voltage over a wider range of string lengths and regardless of environmental conditions. A proprietary data monitoring receiver has been integrated into the inverter and aggregates the power optimizer performance data from each PV module. This data can be transmitted to the web and accessed via the SolarEdge Monitoring Portal for performance analysis, fault detection and troubleshooting of PV systems.
