Case Study: Energy storage enables SEV to optimize wind power for the Faroe Islands

The latest step in SEVs renewable energy program is a new 12 MW wind farm located in Húsahagi, on the island of Streymoy. Since coming on line in 2014, the wind farm has increased the islands wind share to 26 percent of total electricity production.

The Many Fates Of Former Solar Decathlon Houses

Like the students continual career evolution after participating in one of the most rigorous and comprehensive university competitions, the houses that have competed in the seven U.S.-based Solar Decathlons continue to find new purposes and opportunities all over the world.

Intersolar Q&A with Kristan Kirsh, NEXTracker

NEXTracker is thrilled to launch our latest product innovation, TrueCapture™. TrueCapture™ is a revolutionary new software-as-a-service (SaaS) plus hardware offering.

Capturing Energy with Nanotechnology

One goal of nanotechnology is to improve photovoltaic solar electricity generation. The thermodynamic limit of 80% productivity is well beyond the capabilities of current photovoltaic technologies, whose performance now is only about 43%.

Data Rules: Intelligent Solar Trackers Reduce Risk, Downtime and O&M Costs

Developing a predictable O&M strategy at the outset of a project will ensure the bankability and a robust ROI throughout the systems lifetime. Project owners and developers that thoroughly evaluate O&M considerations of their tracker investments will find that the higher energy performance, predictive analytics and long-term reliability of single-axis, self-powered trackers will provide a lower overall levelized cost of energy than fixed-tilt racking or conventional tracking systems.

Why Wind and Solar Are Better Together

Currently, wind generation sites are the cheapest version to build in the United States. Solar tends to be significantly more expensive to develop and construct. Creating one site for both forms is much more affordable, yet offers all the advantages covered above.

Global Wind And Solar Costs To Fall Even Faster, While Coal Fades Even In China And India

This year's forecast from BNEF sees solar energy costs dropping a further 66% by 2040, and onshore wind by 47%, with renewables undercutting the majority of existing fossil power stations by 2030

Why Design Matters for Solar O&M

When evaluating SATs, I want to consider whether the failure of any individual hardware component could threaten the systems overall production. In the case of a decentralized SAT, for example, each rows independent motor is powered by its own dedicated solar panel (with integrated battery backup), making external power cables obsolete.

3 Ways to Prevent a Solavalanche

Because the face of solar panels are fabricated from glass, theres no surface area/friction for snow to grip onto, and nothing to stop it from building up, eventually releasing in an avalanche manner, in the form of what we Alpine-ites like to refer to as a solavalanche.

Energy storage and renewables beyond wind, hydro, solar make up 4% of U.S. power capacity

California leads the United States in capacity of several categories: hydroelectric pumped storage, geothermal, landfill gas, and batteries. Florida leads the country in capacity of municipal solid waste and other waste biomass generators.

Clean-technology Incubator Program Expands Focus Beyond Commercial Buildings

The Innovation Incubator (IN2) is now a $30 million program supporting a technology incubator and provides a platform to support early-stage clean tech startup companies to overcome market gaps by providing access to both technical assistance and project support funding.

The Future of District Heating

Perhaps one of the primary reasons for district heating systems not being as efficient as they should be is due to a lack of access to data. Effectively, designers specify systems without using any operational data to help inform their decisions.

Talking Intersolar with Bryan Whitton, Darfon Solar

Darfon will be introducing 5 new products this year: H5000, H100, H200, G640 and ComBox. The H5000, our latest hybrid inverter, converts DC power from the PV modules or batteries into AC. Based upon programmed priorities easily set up by the installer, batteries are charged from either the PV array or grid.

U.S. Solar Market Adds 2 Gigawatts of PV in Q1 2017

Utility-scale solar prices fall below $1/watt for first time; capacity expected to triple over next five years.

CETYS University Renewable Energy Engineering Program in Mexico

The Renewable Energy Engineering Program began in 2015 due to the potential demand that is expected for these types of professionals and the opportunity for development (a growing trend) provided by Baja California, the California region in general (USA) and Baja California Sur (Mexico).

Panasonic - The HIT® high performance advantage

Panasonic - The HIT® high performance advantage

Heterojunction technology minimizes electron loss - Thin amorphous silicon layers reduce electron carrier loss to minimal levels. The result is a remarkably high-efficiency solar cell that produces Greater long-term energy output. Innovative pyramid structure absorbs more sunlight - A uniquely effective pyramid structure optimizes sunlight capture. By reducing outward reflection and directing sun rays inward to the cell, HIT absorbs more sunlight and generates more electricity for your home. Dual-sided cells multiply energy output - Advanced bifacial cells work in concert with the pyramid structure to multiply solar power output exponentially. Available sunlight is captured from both sides of the panel, converting more sunlight into electricity.
