"Tier 1 Solar PV Manufacturers Boost Expansions to Support Increasing Demand," says Jon Campos, analyst - solar research at IHS.
The industry has matured considerably from the industry shakeout of 2012.
"Record results from Enphase, and the release of SMA's solar microinverter in Europe will help fuel over 2 GW of solar microinverter shipments in 2017" says Cormac Gilligan, Senior Analyst at IHS.
Leading solar microinverter supplier, Enphase Energy increased its share of global PV inverter revenues to approximately 4% in 2013. It is well positioned for further growth as its business moves close to profitability. --- Microinverter shipments to European markets are forecast to accelerate to reach over 200 MW in 2015, boosted by the release of SMA's Sunny Boy 240 in Germany. --- Global cumulative microinverter shipments are forecast to reach over 7 GW by 2017.

Tesla Motors' CEO Elon Musk says that this week, he will detail his plans to build a huge plant to make electric car batteries — so big that he calls it the "gigafactory." Compared with Tesla's swoopy electric luxury cars, making lithium-ion battery packs sounds decidedly unsexy. But Tesla apparently views the plant as critical to its strategy. Reasons: •Steady supply. Tesla will make the case that it needs its own source of battery packs. It has made no secret of its inability to get enough batteries through its deal with Panasonic to keep up with demand for its Model S electric sedan. It says the current shortage will last through the first half of the year. •Other revenue streams. The plant could supply batteries to other carmakers and for other uses. Musk also is chairman of SolarCity, which has announced plans to sell Tesla battery packs to companies to use for emergency backup power storage. •Future models. Tesla is developing a more mainstream electric car for sale in several years. But it will need to dramatically lower battery costs and increase supply to create a mass-market vehicle.
Altaaqa Global, a global temporary power and energy solution specialist, recently won ‘Power Project of the Year' for its Yemen power project and was highly commended for its role in innovation.
At EWEA 2014 in Barcelona, TÜV SÜD will showcase the result of an important research project about the potential of high wind power resources in forested areas together with its full scope of wind energy products and services (Booth 7B100).
This will be the first clean energy project constructed on the Swiss Embassy in Japan.
The modules will power a ground-mounted project on 63.5 acres of land in Wiltshire, England.

Many 1.5 MW wind turbines use traditional open-loop water/glycol cooling systems. Regular water evaporation in the reservoir elevates the mixture's viscosity, prohibiting cooling of the IGBT and associated critical controls, causing the wind turbine to overheat unless serviced, which in turn means turbine downtime and high maintenance costs. Parker's KleenVent Coolant Evaporation Inhibitor (KV-CEI) is a simple add-on to the legacy cooling system, that eliminates water evaporation in the coolant solution and stops the ingress of airborne contaminants, by enclosing the cooling loop. The KVCEI also removes the need for continuous coolant monitoring during the warm season. Traditional maintenance calls to replenish or rebalance the fluids, take the wind turbine and transformer offline, resulting in significant downtime and revenue loss. Parker's cooling system solution optimizes wind turbine uptime and revenue, reduces maintenance costs and increases overall efficiencies.
