Installers working on a tile roof must deal with particularly difficult challenges. Tile roofs are manufactured from many types of materials, including clay, zinc coated aluminum, concrete, wood and fiberglass, all of which come in a wide range of shapes and sizes. Installing solar panels on a tile roof takes more time than traditional asphalt shingle roofs and often requires additional framing.
For renewable energy industries, it is important that project knowledge, industry awareness and organizational savvy be captured within the organization so it can be easily shared with incoming employees.
This year Solar Power International has moved to October. SPI is perhaps the most important show for the solar industry here in North America.
The five platforms listed below are the top leaders in renewable energy crowd funding, based on the money they have raised so far.
Product development in a shifting solar market shows "onshoring" makes sense
Sun tracking is accomplished through azimuth and elevation (screw jack) drives that require a high degree of accuracy and durability.
Ontario, Canada, companies transform wind, sunshine and even sawdust into green power
The “new reality” facing electricity consumers and their utility companies is that renewable energy is meeting an increasingly larger share of U.S. energy needs, according to a report released this month from Ceres and Clean Edge. That translates into more and better choices and a clean energy future. “Renewables — including wind, solar, biomass, geothermal, waste heat and small-scale hydroelectric — accounted for a whopping 49 percent of new U.S. electric generating capacity in 2012, with new wind development outpacing even natural gas,” writes Jon Wellinghoff, partner at Stoel Rives LLP and former chairman of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission in the report. “Benchmarking Utility Clean Energy Deployment: 2014,” the first report from Ceres in partnership with Clean Edge on this subject, ranks the nation’s 32 largest electric utilities and their local subsidiaries on their renewable energy sales and energy efficiency savings. cont'd.
In this paper, we discuss the critical issues that sources and states face in evaluating EPA's proposal and developing plans to meet the Clean Power Plan requirements.
As Summer kicks into full gear we can sit back and enjoy a bit of a break from the Tradeshow schedule. August will see a bit of a lull but starting September and intensifying in October the Alternative Energy tradeshow calendar is full! Here is a summary of what Tradeshows, Conferences & Exhibitions to look forward to in the coming months.
A little understood but perhaps far more important consideration for consumer safety could be related to the risk of battery fires to drivers.
Web-based software improves the accuracy and efficiency of meeting payment obligations by providing lease management, automatic payment reminders, payment tracker, royalty calculator, and payment scheduler capabilities.
AltEnergyMag.com has once again partnered with Intersolar to bring all the industry news and exciting new products to help our readers make sense of this key tradeshow. Here we have compiled a list of some product releases from this years show.
IBM Research Launches Project "Green Horizon" to Help China Deliver on Ambitious Energy and Environmental Goals
IBM has announced that it is deploying the full force of its researchers in laboratories around the world in a 10-year initiative to support China in transforming its national energy systems and protecting the health of citizens. Dubbed "Green Horizon", the project sets out to leap beyond current global practices in three areas critical to China's sustainable growth: air quality management, renewable energy forecasting and energy optimization for industry. Led by IBM's China Research laboratory, the initiative will tap into the company's network of 12 global research labs and create an innovation ecosystem of partners from government, academia, industry and private enterprise. One of the first partners to come on board is the Beijing Municipal Government. Through a collaboration agreement, the two parties have agreed to work together to develop solutions which can help tackle the city's air pollution challenges. The collaboration will leverage some of IBM's most advanced technologies such as cognitive computing, optical sensors and the internet of things all based on a Big Data and analytics platform and drawing on IBM's deep experience in weather prediction and climate modelling. "China has made great achievements and contributed much to the world's economic growth over the past 30 years. It now has an opportunity to lead the world in sustainable energy and environmental management," said D.C. Chien, Chairman and CEO, IBM Greater China Group. "While other nations waited until their economies were fully developed before taking comprehensive action to address environmental issues, China can leverage IBM's most advanced information technologies to help transform its energy infrastructures in parallel with its growth."
When Satcon, the former inverter manufacturer, closed shop, Photon Energy moved quickly and hired key technical personnel.
