Case Study: Harvesting 36% Energy Boost with Tigo's Retrofitted Optimization

Tigo's optimizers enable each module to produce its maximum power, without affecting adjacent modules in the string. After six months of operating with TS4-R-O's, the system is performing an average 36% better than it did during the equivalent months in 2015 and 2016.

Solar Investments: Reducing the Risk of Unfavorable Returns

As the PV industry enters the next stage of its evolution, there is good reason to believe all the risks of a solar array will be assessed in greater detail. More scrutiny may uncover potentially underperforming components and high O&M costs before an investment is made.

Building The World's Largest Solar Project

Saudi Arabia wants to pour $200 billion into solar to build the world's largest solar project.

California Pilots a New Approach to Balancing With Li-ion Energy Storage

This pilot energy storage system (ESS) offers the near-instantaneous ability to respond to changes in load. It will demonstrate how GWP can achieve an unprecedented capacity to regulate its transmission system and ensure a reliable customer supply.

IHS Markit White Paper Identifies Eight Global Solar and Energy Storage Market Trends to Watch

Annual solar installations grew almost 20 percent year over year in 2017, and the solar industry is also edging within 100 gigawatts, a milestone the industry will reach this year

Solar Spotlight: CORE1 Inverters in Action With Pickett Solar

SMA is thrilled to see that its award-winning CORE1 inverters are officially making it into the field, and Pickett Solar is among the first to install the groundbreaking commercial inverter! The CORE1 is the world's first free-standing PV inverter, and offers 60% faster installation.

Detection, Deterrent System Will Help Eagles, Wind Turbines Coexist Better

The findings are important because while wind power is generally regarded as green energy, danger to birds - particularly federally protected bald eagles and golden eagles - is a concern.

Renewable Energy's Role in Emergency Restoration

Larger grids make more sense in places that have more landmass, like continents. But even they can benefit from the concept of adding in microgrids to help supply power during blackouts, which is pretty much the entire concept of a microgrid.

Why Air Pollution Poses the Greatest Threat to Human Health

Making your air better is as simple as trying to reduce your impact on the environment. Practically every time we consume something, we contribute to the air quality. We can choose to make it either better or worse. A few changes to your daily routine can make a huge difference

Battery Technology from A to Z

Concorde's Vice President of Advanced Battery Technology, on Sun Xtender® Renewable Energy Batteries: including maximizing the life of your storage battery & battery aging, technology costs and risks

Geothermal Tax Credits Reinstated

The newly reinstated tax credit is a positive step that further aligns geothermal as a significant energy source for the market. The tax break will drive sales in the industry and encourage people to adopt geothermal systems.

The Wadesboro Solar Farm Touts Quick Installation and Big Benefits for the Community

Anson County will increase its property tax revenue by more than 98%. Before the solar farm, the county received around $700 each year in property taxes from the previous landowner. Upon completion in December 2017, the solar farm is now taking in about $32,000 annually.

Europe Blows Away the Competition

The low cost of European offshore wind energy is the result of several factors, including advanced turbine technology, the availability of specialty construction vessels, concentrated supply chain expertise and consistent policy support.

Taking Microgrids to the Next Level With Li-ion Energy Storage

To convince investors of the business case, energy storage must deliver a high return on investment in terms of substantial savings and operational advantages. Equally, there can be no reduction in reliability and power quality.

The Cummins Carport Project - a Park@Sol Success Story

Solar racking on carports is an innovative way to derive clean energy, reduce other energy costs, and keep cars and people shaded, and the Cummins carport project met all these goals!

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.
