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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

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.
