"We are very pleased to announce these new exciting efficiency results achieved by Trina Solar's researchers at the State Key Laboratory of PV Science and Technology," said Dr. Pierre Verlinden, Vice-President and Chief Scientist of Trina Solar.
As the world continues to shift towards alternative energy sources, solar power will only continue to grow. Technologies will come and go and the astute product providers will continue to innovate.
Tires may seem to be an unlikely eco-product. But, according to a new market report from Smithers Rapra, the global market for "green tires" will reach $70.6 billion by 2017 or 28% of the total tire market.
Renewable Energy Generator Company Participates in White House Roundtable; also featured in United States of Trade publication
SUNRNR of Virginia, Inc., a Shenandoah Valley based solar generator manufacturer was recently one of nine small business owners and elected officials invited by the White House Business Council to attend a briefing with President Obama and senior Administration officials. This Small Business Exporters Roundtable was assembled to discuss President Obama's export and international trade agenda.
Two floating solar power plants capable of providing electricity for 1,000 homes have been completed in Japan. The latest such "mega-plants" at Nishihira and Higashihira Ponds in Kato City are the work of electronics giant Kyocera Corporation and Century Tokyo Leasing Corporation, and took just seven months to install. The plant's 11,250 modules are expected to generate 3,300 megawatt hours (MWh) every year. According to Kyocera, besides being typhoon-proof (due to their sturdy, high-density polyethylene and array design) floating solar plants are superior to their land-based equivalents because of the cooling effect of the water, which allows them to function more efficiently. Reservoirs are also an ideal location because the panels produce shade, which reduces water evaporation and promotes algae growth. A report by Korea Water Resources Corporation found that the lower temperatures of the floating modules mean they are 11 percent more efficient than land-based equivalents. The report identified unsolved issues with the plants, too, however. It said the study had to discard data collected when the panels moved in the wind, and said research into new mooring systems was "continually needed".

USAID recently announced the winners of the Desal Prize, part of a competition to see who could create an affordable desalination solution for developing countries. The idea was to create a system that could remove salt from water and meet three criteria: it had to be cost-effective, environmentally sustainable, and energy efficient. The winners of the $125,000 first prize were a group from MIT and Jain Irrigation Systems. The group came up with a method that uses solar panels to charge a bank of batteries. The batteries then power a system that removes salt from the water through electrodialysis. On the most basic level, that means that dissolved salt particles, which have a slight electric charge, are drawn out of the water when a small electrical current is applied. In addition to getting rid of salt (which makes water unusable for crops and for drinking), the team also applied UV light to disinfect some of the water as it passed through the system. Using the sun instead of fossil fuels to power a desalination plant isn't a totally new idea. Larger solar desalination plants are being seriously investigated in areas where water is becoming a scarce resource, including Chile and California. While proponents hope to eventually could provide water to large numbers of people, the technology is still expensive (though prices are dropping) and requires a lot of intricate technology.

Axiom Exergy Slashes Supermarkets' Energy Bills by Converting Refrigeration Systems into Low-Cost Energy Storage Assets
Axiom Exergy's Refrigeration Battery enables commercial buildings with high refrigeration-based energy loads to intelligently "store refrigeration" for later use, reducing peak electricity demand by up to 40 percent. This new, low-cost approach to energy storage enables supermarkets to boost their razor-thin profit margins by: a) shifting electricity demand to inexpensive, overnight hours; and b) providing backup cooling to avoid catastrophic food spoilage during power outages.
