Japanese and Chinese Markets Continue Strong Growth with New Policy Initiatives
The appetite for solar in America's southeast is growing. On October 2, 2010, Mississippi Solar's Will and Carolyn Hegman are serving up some mouth-watering, cost-effective ideas to feed that hunger during their second Annual "Down on the Farm" solar tour. The tour is part of the non-profit American Solar Energy Society's National Solar Tour, the world's largest grassroots solar event. Over 646 tours are taking place across 48 states, with more coming online each week.
We're making biomass briquettes using forest residues or agro-waste which include a wide-range of residues: dry leaves, grass, unwarranted weeds, (Lantana) forest residue, cow dung, sawdust from local sawmills, and highly inflammable pine needles that cause forest fires. These briquettes are then supplied to brick kilns manufacturers, boiler operators for steam generation, and food processing industries that use coal for heating purposes. The low cost and guaranteed availability of the densified biomass is the main motivator for the clients to switch to the clean energy alternative.
Wind energy training will prove to be one way to put those who receive this education on the cutting edge of a whole new technology as people look to find alternative energy sources.
By 2011, Ontario's solar PV capacity could run as high as 250 MW. The Ontario Power Authority had 486 MW contracted at the end of 2009, which, if fulfilled this year, could make Ontario the largest market in North America for solar PV installation and training in 2010.
SkyFuel, Inc. is a solar thermal power technology and service provider founded in 2007. SkyFuel solar collectors harness solar radiation to produce steam for electricity generation and industrial applications. The Company is a leading supplier of utility-scale concentrating solar power (CSP) systems. SkyFuel currently offers an advanced, glass-free parabolic trough solar thermal collector, called the SkyTrough®. It is the highest performance, lowest-cost utility-scale solar power system in the world.
Our Parallel Solar approach handles voltage management at the module level, using a DC-to-DC converter (the vBoost) to boost each module's output. So the array has a high-voltage bus that will never exceed its set voltage as it feeds the central inverter. This allows you to connect the modules in parallel rather than series.
The plant upgrades and streamlined floor plan allow for and estimated increase in throughput of 30%. Automated equipment speeds up production and efficiency, reducing lead times and allowing us to get the product out the door to our distributors more effectively.
We are being marginalized, patronized and ignored by our current energy policies. We're not being encouraged, or even invited, to participate individually in the solution to the problem. I feel that it's incumbent upon each of us to "plant our own renewable energy ‘Victory Gardens'".
The efficiency offered by radiant floor systems can heat an ample sized kitchen on a 10-hour heating cycle for only 58 cents a day (20 cents for a bathroom). All without releasing any unburned gases or matter that may disturb the environment.
GlobalData's latest renewable policy report includes major policy developments in the renewable energy market for the month August, 2010. This includes updates in policies in China and the US.
When Tim and Tracy Gilchrist sought an alternative way to heat and cool their non- traditional home in Laurentian Valley, Ontario, little did they realize what a noticeable impact their decision would have on their children and pets.
It is clear the PV industry has done a much better job communicating solar electric. I understand the various industry associations recognize this confusion. I hope we see more of the consumer marketing aimed not just at solar thermal but explaining the differences and how a dual energy system is another good option to leverage their solar investment.
In July 2009, SGS was assigned a contract to carry out Quality, Health, Safety and Environmental (QHSE) Management for the Belwind Bligh Bank Offshore Wind Farm in Belgium. SGS provides QHSE Management activities during the design, manufacturing and installation phases of the wind farm project in order to assure high quality standards and a safe project execution.
"Tennessee Valley Authority does away with solar subsidy." Would any businessman who knew that his obsolescence was imminent not do likewise?

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.
