5 Signs that Solar Energy is Changing Society's Consumption Behavior

Despite the resistance of giant fossil fuel enterprises, and despite the misguided efforts of some local, state and federal governments to forestall solar energy (as well as other alternative sources), the march has begun. While the U.S. may be behind Europe right now, the inevitability is a foregone conclusion.

Yingli Solar's PANDA Bifacial Solar Module

The Panda bifacial modules are 1500Vdc capable and when compared to the traditional 1000Vdc systems the balance of systems (BOS) cost can be reduced from system design adjustments by 3%, which translates to almost 2 mil savings for a 10MW system

Berkeley Lab's "Utility-Scale Solar 2016" Finds Solar Power Increasingly Competitive

While focused on key developments in 2016, this report explores trends in deployment and project design, installed project prices, operating costs, capacity factors, and power purchase agreement (PPA) prices among both utility-scale photovoltaic (PV) and concentrating solar thermal power (CSP) projects.

IoT and Utilities: What's Hype? What's Real Change? ... and What You Need to Know

Instead of thinking in old world terms like Operational and Business support applications and systems, the era of Digital Support Systems powered by Smart Data has arrived. Achieving profitable transformation and commercial success depends on providing the right answers.

How much land is needed to power the world's major cities by solar?

Asia tops the list for the continent that would need to designate the largest space to power its biggest cities by solar. Cities in Asia place in at seven different spaces in the top 10, where the largest amount of space is required.

Powerwall Type Batteries

There are many reasons to purchase a battery system for the home or business, starting with natural disasters, but a battery system, tied into a solar system, will maximize self-consumption of solar power, reduce grid costs, increase the resiliency of electricity, and take a home or business completely off grid with minimal fossil fuels.

Beyond Biospheres: Waste Heat to Power Amazon's New Campus

Seattle is among 17 major North American cities whose "2030 District" is driving high-efficiency district energy systems to share and exchange energy and heat between building partners - saving energy, money and maintenance costs, and providing more reliable power.

Understanding Battery Degradation

Batteries may degrade gracefully up to a point, then experience "rapid fade" and lose capacity quickly. A system that has been designed to meet a given level of demand will, at some point, be unable to do so.

Solar Power International 2017 - Q&A with Kipp & Zonen

With an interactive demo we invite everyone to test this new technology. Our new innovation for the measurement of soiling of PV: DustIQ. It's a technology that's completely new to the PV industry and is unique in its maintenance free operation.

Talking SPI with NEXTracker

At NEXTracker booth 4311, we're thrilled to be highlighting our First Solar solutions this year - for both Series 4 and 6, NX Fusion Plus™ storage and solar product and components of our TrueCapture™ control system.

Talking SPI 2017 with Solatrim

In addition to the original ST-001, we have added the ST-055 - our 5.5" wide version - which has been selling well in the Northeast. Installers there are setting their racking to create a protection width that the ST-055 fits perfectly, no cutting, less labor.

Keeping the Lights On

As we transition into a greener economy increasingly fueled by hydrogen, fuel cell solutions for backup and power-on-demand are overcoming the significant weaknesses of other clean technologies such as solar and wind.

There Are No Glass Ceilings in This Solar Village

The U.S. Department of Energy Solar Decathlon is the world's premier design-build competition, challenging students to create an energy efficient, solar-powered house that must perform in 10 contests during a nine-day public event.

Lead Acid Vs. Lithium Ion Batteries

Lithium LiFe stands for lithium iron phosphate, and it's the newest revolution in rechargeable home battery systems. While standard lithium-ion batteries are a big step up from lead-acid batteries, LiFe takes it even further.

Fuel Cell Adoption in the Mainstream

Not only does this technology represent an opportunity to hugely reduce our greenhouse gas emissions, but it could also be used to achieve an enormous amount of social good too.

Easy monitoring with weather sensors from Lufft

Easy monitoring with weather sensors from Lufft

Professional weather sensors form the heart of large solar plants supporting their operation and performance. Lufft was the first manufacturer to combine several sensors in one housing, bringing the largest multiparameter weather sensor family with 19 members into being. Many of them are well-suited for solar site assessment and continuous monitoring. The most commonly used one is the WS600 delivering data on temperature, air pressure, wind, relative humidity and precipitation. Through its open protocol, it can easily be attached to radiation sensors e.g. from Kipp&Zonen. Other models have an integrated Silicon, Second Class or Secondary Standard radiation sensor.
