Looking at current market demand for renewable electricity documented with Guarantees of Origin in Europe 2017, customer demand is showing impressive signs, with Q2 numbers surging well above comparable figures for 2016, growing a staggering 39%.
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.
Solar with Energy Storage Success: Cuttyhunk Island, MA Celebrates Its First Summer Going Majority Solar-Powered
Solar Design Associates of Harvard, Massachusetts, designed and installed this 1,020-panel solar array and a 1 MW energy storage system that have delivered over 50% of the electricity this summer for Cuttyhunk Island, Massachusetts.
We're installing a lot more solar, and we're looking at a variety of opportunities. There are some projects where we will be feeding the energy into the grid. Others will help us offset our carbon footprint.
In conjunction with this rapid growth, the DOE report found that 73% percent of all surveyed employers said they're having difficulty hiring qualified workers across the energy sector. The Solar Decathlon helps address this difficulty by challenging student teams with a real-life, complicated project that provides hands-on training for undergraduate and graduate students.
The General Sessions at SPI expands the emerging possibilities of the solar industry. High-profile speakers bring future awareness of our rapidly evolving business; and the attendees will leave the General Sessions equipped with the key perspectives they will need as they traverse the future of solar.
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.
Andy Colthorpe for Energy-Storage News: The requirement of nine hours of energy storage duration at a project touted as a possible replacement for a new natural gas plant in California makes it tough for the newer technology to compete on cost, an analyst has said.
NauticExpo: Developed by Netherlands-based Water2Energy, a vertical axis water turbine (VAWT) with an innovative pitch control system is proving from 30% to 50% more efficient than traditional systems.
Max Bögl Wind AG demonstrates its new power plant and storage concept at the ESNA in California.
Glenn McDonald for Seeker: A California startup is repurposing trains and rail cars to help the storage capacity of renewable energy utilities compete with fossil fuels.
The project will reduce electricity grid demand by an estimated 30 to 35 percent annually at each Home Depot store; the equivalent of powering 2,300 average U.S. homes for a year.
The three main possible applications of the new alkaline battery technology would be consumer electronics, electric cars, and energy storage for the power grid, according to the developers.
Solar Power International 2017 was held from September 10th to 13th in Las Vegas, Nevada. This AltEnergyMag.com Special Tradeshow report aims to bring you news, articles and products from this years events.
