Smart lighting innovations on display in San Diego, April 26-28, at booth #7017
sonnen, the market leader in intelligent energy storage with over 10,000 installed sonnenBatterie systems, wins the 2016 Grid Edge Award for the capability to innovate distributed energy products that are impacting and disrupting the market.
Smarter Grid Solutions has announced they are working with LOTTE Chemical to test and demonstrate LOTTEs Flow Battery Technology in the UK market. The two year project will demonstrate the controllability of a battery when it is paired with other technologies, such as renewables, to provide evidence of the types of ancillary services the pairing of these technologies could offer.
Swedish solar energy expert Midsummer receives funding from Mistra for development of lightweight solar modules on vehicles
The developed solar panels will be integrated in body panels in a Clean Motion Zbee ultra-light electric vehicle composite roof. The Swedish Foundation for Strategic Environmental Research, Mistra, is funding Midsummers development of lightweight solar modules on vehicles.
The Swedish marine energy company has now placed an order for a prototype of the turbine, with delivery in early 2017.
Adam Vaughan for The Guardian: The amount of household solar power capacity installed in the past two months has plummeted by three quarters following the government’s cuts to subsidies, according to new figures. A fall in solar power was expected following a 65% reduction in government incentives paid to householders, but the size of the drop-off will dismay green campaigners who want take up on clean energy sources to accelerate. Data published by the energy regulator this week shows there was 21 megawatts (MW) of small solar installed in February and March this year, after a new, lower incentive rate came into effect. By contrast, energy department figures show that for the same period in 2015, 81MW was installed. Cont'd...
Leading sustainability firm, greeNEWit, recognized for helping homeowners improve energy efficiency and increase comfort in homes
Although marine powers damage to the environment is significantly less than its energy counterparts, the possible affects to existing ecosystems must be considered.
Currently the UK is seen as the leader for the development of marine energy technologies. Around 10MW of wave and tidal stream devices are being tested in UK waters, more than the rest of the world combined.
Hydrogen-powered vehicles emit only water vapour, produce no carbon emissions or air pollution, have a range of several hundred miles and refuel in three minutes.
With the technology, infrastructure and energy mix demand developing, marine energy can be seen as a key frontier in clean energy generation. The UK Marine Energy Conference 2016 will focus on accelerating marine energy as a viable energy alternative and maintaining the UKs position at the forefront of this emerging market.
From North American WindPower: According to MAKE’s latest wind power outlook for North America, unprecedented long-term policy certainty in the U.S., along with a new climate-conscious government in Canada, will enable nearly 75 GW of total wind power growth in the region from 2016 to 2025. The production tax credit (PTC) in the U.S. was extended in December 2015 as a multiyear phaseout and will support a total of 44.4 GW of wind power additions from 2016 to 2021. However, as the value of the PTC phases down after 2018, several drivers must align to sustain wind power growth in the U.S. At the sub-regional level, Texas will lead wind power growth from 2016 to 2018, followed by the Plains and the Midwest. Turbine technology advancement and balance-of-plant cost reductions will continue to drive down the levelized cost of electricity (LCOE) of wind power and offset a portion of the lost PTC value from 2019. This will allow wind power to maintain a substantial share of new power generation demand, despite attractive costs for natural gas power and rising competition from solar photovoltaics. Last year, the U.S. alone added nearly 8.6 GW of new wind energy generation. Cont'd...
Status report shows that RPS policies likely to remain an important driver for renewables growth.
PV Nano Cell Signs Agreement with Korean Distributor ADST, Enabling Mass Production of Printed Electronics Now in Three Continents
Polysilicon extends gains this week amid tight supply situation in China. The domestic demand in China improves as the downstream wafer manufacturers are planning aggressive capacity expansion. Meanwhile, the supply level is relatively tight in China as the trade war bars the U.S. polysilicon imports from Chinese market. Hence, the short-term supply tightening situation has lead major polysilicon manufacturers to successfully increase their price quote this week. As for the polysilicon in overseas market, although the rally continues, the price improvement is not as notable as China, due to the ample supply in the market.
