WWTP sludge treatment is often an energy-consuming waste management headache. A Dutch WWTP has installed a new type of sewage sludge treatment system that has the potential to turn the plant into a net energy provider.
HoSt has started the construction of a Thermal Pressure Hydrolysis (TPH) plant for sewage sludge at the wastewater treatment plant in Echten. With this technology, sewage sludge is pre-treated at high pressure and temperature with the aim of improving the biogas production and the dewaterability.

Innovative Solar Power Plant to Boost National Grid Launched at the Height of South African Energy Challenges
-- KaXu Solar One is the first Solar Thermal Electric power plant in commercial operation in South Africa. -- This public-private partnership helps meet the energy needs of South Africa in a reliable and sustainable manner using innovative technology.
Researchers from institutions including Lund University have taken a step closer to producing solar fuel using artificial photosynthesis. In a new study, they have successfully tracked the electrons' rapid transit through a light-converting molecule.
From GovTech.com: Sonoma County, Calif.'s new public electricity supplier is turning to the sun and water — the airspace over treated sewage ponds, specifically — to generate power for local homes and businesses. Under a deal signed Thursday with a San Francisco-based renewable energy developer, officials with Sonoma Clean Power, now the default electricity provider in Sonoma County, unveiled a plan to install a 12.5-megawatt solar farm on floating docks atop holding ponds operated by the county Water Agency. When completed in 2016, the project, which will provide enough electricity to power 3,000 homes, will be the largest solar installation in the county. It also will help fulfill one of Sonoma Clean Power’s central goals — to develop local sources of renewable energy for its expanding customer base, now taking in more than 160,000 residential and commercial accounts across five cities in the county.
Spray-on solar cells use nanotechnology. These cells are made using quantum dots, which is a nanocrystal composed of a semiconductor material that is small enough to take advantage of the laws of quantum mechanics.
The US and China will be in the 12-15 GW range in 2015 but the incremental growth will come from some of these emerging markets. We expect Mexico to be a 2 GW market by 2017, with South Africa also above the 1 GW mark by 2017. These two markets were stagnant in 2013-14, so the growth will be quite significant in the coming years.
A sea change is gathering as the country contemplates embracing the promise of solar-powered electricity.

The concept of combining PV arrays with standing seam metal roofing is growing-for good reasons. Metal roofs have a life expectancy of more than 40 years. Shouldn't the mounting system last as long? With S-5! zero-penetration attachment technology and PVKIT 2.0, the solarized metal roof is the most sustainable system available -and without compromising roof warranties! PVKIT 2.0 is the also the best solution for attaching PV modules directly to any exposed fastener metal roof.
