Using Artificial Intelligence to Protect and Optimize Critical Assets

We use AI to protect and optimize critical assets - that goes for both cyber and physical. Our predictive analytics platform lets users take massive amounts of data and, in an automated fashion, quickly build models to find meaning in it, thereby significantly improving maintenance strategies and costs.

Market Analysis Platform Helps Companies Optimize Renewable Energy Purchases

The Market Analysis Platform ("MAP") is a software package that provides insight to potential buyers and others on where wind and solar power purchase agreements are more likely to be economically attractive.

Event Shows South West Businesses the Huge Opportunities of Latest Battery-storage Technology

The event at Darts Farm attracted more than 50 businesses from the South West and beyond, many of whom already have solar PV systems in place at their sites and are now looking for the next step to reduce their reliance on energy companies further.

Massachusetts Island Famous for Relaxation Discovers Solar Peace of Mind

Being so far away from mainland Massachusetts, it made sense for Cuttyhunk Island to have an inexhaustible source of energy in the form of solar PV.

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 system's 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 system's overall production. In the case of a decentralized SAT, for example, each row's 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, there's 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.

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).

TRA SNOW AND SUN - SOLAR TILE MOUNT

TRA SNOW AND SUN - SOLAR TILE MOUNT

You haven't installed a tile mount that is easier to install than the Solar Tile Mount manufactured by TRA Snow and Sun. Solar Tile Mount is used on all tile roof profiles: flat, mid, and high. It is made in the USA of aluminum alloy for strength and excellent corrosion resistance. Solar Tile Mount is built to allow more ease in installation with more rise from the tile surface to the rail for better air flow below panels. The adjustable base is longer than most allowing attachment 6" to the left or right to have the bracket in the base of the pan of the tile and still fasten to the rafter. Solar Tile Mount is adjustable for counter batten systems from ¾" to 3". The horizontal rail is directly above base fasteners giving greater uplift resistance than any other system. For superior waterproofing apply TRA Snow and Sun's butyl backed VersaFlash aluminum flashing. No tile flashing is needed on top of the tile for greater labor and material cost savings.
