The model development will also help to investigate how local-area residential storage can relieve and support the mains electricity grid.
Business Council for Sustainable Energy & Bloomberg New Energy Finance release new report revealing growth sectors in U.S. energy economy
New figures from Bloomberg New Energy Finance show 7% growth in global smart grid investment in 2012. The company expects just over 10% compound annual growth for the next five years, nearly doubling the market to $25.2bn per annum by 2018
The entire project was delivered in just 11 months from start to finish
Installers, homeowners and investors will benefit from fewer repairs, safety advantages of not working on high voltage DC electricity, and faster installations with lower labor and material costs.
The program, which began in pilot form in January 2012, evaluates certificate-awarding schools, colleges and other institutions against requirements for equipment, curriculum, facilities, administration, and personnel.

A recent news item suggested that the drive towards wind power is, for want of a better expression, running out of puff.
There are waves of changes in funding worldwide for alternative energy, matching the move to more wind offshore - the whole market is at sea. There are economic and structural pressures on wind turbines especially the blades. This article reviews wind composite technology and markets.

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.
