The rule approved today will allow solar projects that meet certain technical requirements to qualify for a "fast track" interconnection process, thus eliminating the need for costly and time-consuming studies.
For the purpose of this article the focus will be on making smarter specification of cable and wire management systems for solar installations. The reason--- these components are often overlooked.
14 Operators will gather to discuss their O&M strategies at the 6th International Onshore and Offshore Wind O&M Forum in Hamburg, the ‘hub' for operational wind facilities and service specialists.

The addition of energy storage to an existing or new utility-scale PV installation allows system owners and operators the opportunity to capture additional revenues. Traditional storage plus solar applications have involved the coupling of independent storage and PV inverters at an AC bus or the use of multi-input hybrid inverters. An alternative approach - coupling energy storage to PV arrays with a DC-to-DC converter - can help maximize production and profits for existing and new utility-scale installations. DC-Coupled Utility-Scale Solar Plus Storage leads to higher round-trip efficiencies and lower cost of integration with existing PV arrays and at the same time, opens up new revenue streams not possible with traditional AC-coupled storage, including clipping recapture and low voltage harvesting, while being eligible for valuable tax incentives.
