How to optimize your inverter loading ratio for solar + energy storage projects

In this final blog post of our Solar + Energy Storage series, we will discuss how to properly size the inverter loading ratio on DC-coupled solar + storage systems of a given size.

Joi Scientific and New Brunswick Power to Develop World's First Hydrogen-Powered Distributed Electricity Grid

New Brunswick could see up to 30 distributed Hydrogen 2.0 production stations deployed for zero-carbon baseload generation

Energy Storage & Microgrids

Besides encouraging more renewable electricity generation, improved energy storage technologies have several benefits, including a more efficient grid that is unaffected by disruptions and less carbon dioxide emissions because the electricity will be greener.

Distributed Energy Resources (DERs)

As utilities move towards distributed energy, the customer's role in the energy value chain increases dramatically. The utility's ability to influence mutually beneficial DER adoption and behavior will dictate whether or not DERs serve as an opportunity or threat

LG Solar Panels, Energy Star Appliances Bring Green Technology To 2019 'New American Remodel' Home

Advanced solar panels and energy efficient home appliances from LG Electronics are delivering high-performance energy savings and unparalleled design to The New American Remodel® (TNAR), the official show home of the 2019 International Builders' Show® in Las Vegas this week.

Consistent Battery Maintenance Is Key To Longevity And Performance

Failing to consistently check water levels and add water to your batteries can also result in low capacity and eventual battery failure if left unchecked.

Hydrostor Announces Australia's First Compressed Air Energy Storage Facility, Advances Global Pipeline of Utility-Scale Projects

The technology works by using electricity from the grid to run a compressor, producing heated compressed air. Heat is extracted from the air stream and stored inside a proprietary thermal store preserving the energy for use later in the cycle.

KeraCel, a World Leader in Solid-state Lithium Ion Batteries, Announced a Breakthrough in its Multi-material Ceramic Battery Using its Proprietary 3D Printing Technology

KeraCel is developing its ceramic solid-state batteries using proprietary additive manufacturing 3D printing technology resulting in unique monolithic structure. The unique structure allows for greatly increasing battery energy density, and producing safer and longer lasting

Just Right: How to Size Solar + Energy Storage Projects

The first question to ask yourself when sizing energy storage for a solar project is "What is the problem I am trying to solve with storage?" Usually the problem you are trying to solve falls into one of three buckets:

CONGRATULATIONS TO THE SOLAR DECATHLON 2020 BUILD CHALLENGE TEAMS!

The Solar Decathlon is a collegiate competition, comprising 10 contests, that challenges student teams to design and build highly efficient and innovative buildings powered by renewable energy.

Virtual Power Plants - Time for Some Truly Whole-systems Thinking

By definition then, VPPs are an attempt at whole-systems thinking; looking to combine DERs in such a configuration that they're greater than the sum of their parts.

The Connection Between Alternative Energy Technology and Building Trends in the Intermountain West

Nevada led the renewable energy pack by voting in favor of Question 6, with 59 percent of voters approving the measure. Known as the Renewable Energy Standards Initiative, it will require Nevada to source at least 50 percent of its electricity from renewable sources by 2030

Solar and Renewable Energy Trends in 2019

The new year stands before us, like a chapter in a book, waiting to be written. Sven Lindström, CEO of Swedish solar energy technology leader Midsummer, gives us his insights as to what developments we can we expect from the solar and renewable energy sectors in 2019

Highview Power Partners with Citec to Modularize its Gigawatt-Hour Scale Cryogenic Energy Storage Systems

With a simplified design and streamlined engineering from Citec, a standard plant configuration of 50 MW/500 MWh can be easily and cost-effectively scaled up to multiple gigawatt hours, or down, without limitation.

2019 Renewable Energy and Power Industry Outlook

Despite uncertainty about federal tax reform effects and a spate of new import tariffs, strong fundamentals continue to underpin wind and solar growth and supported growth in 2018. And these are buoyed by the 3 enabling trends of emerging policies...

HPS EnduraCoilTM Cast Resin Medium Voltage Transformer

HPS EnduraCoilTM Cast Resin Medium Voltage Transformer

HPS EnduraCoil is a high-performance cast resin transformer designed for many demanding and diverse applications while minimizing both installation and maintenance costs. Coils are formed with mineral-filled epoxy, reinforced with fiberglass and cast to provide complete void-free resin impregnation throughout the entire insulation system. HPS EnduraCoil complies with the new NRCan 2019 and DOE 2016 efficiency regulations and is approved by both UL and CSA standards. It is also seismic qualified per IBC 2012/ASCE 7-10/CBC 2013. Cast resin transformers are self-extinguishing in the unlikely event of fire, environmentally friendly and offer greater resistance to short circuits. HPS also offers wide range of accessories for transformer protection and monitoring requirements.
