Leading Solar Power and Clean Technology Companies to Hold Fire-Side Chats and Investor Meetings
Including a 30kW string inverter, 800kW central inverter, and 16 string combiner box with string level monitoring.
In a bold move being closely watched by utilities, environmentalists and the clean technology industry, California adopted the nation's first energy storage mandate for utilities Thursday. State regulators with the California Public Utilities Commission, meeting in Redding, unanimously approved Commissioner Carla Peterman's groundbreaking proposal that requires PG&E, Southern California Edison and San Diego Gas & Electric to expand their capacity to store electricity, including renewable energy generated from solar and wind. "The decision lays out an energy storage procurement policy guided by three principals: optimization of the grid, integration of renewable energy and reduction of greenhouse gas emissions," said Peterman, a rising star who was appointed to the agency by Gov. Jerry Brown in late 2012. The state's three investor-owned utilities must collectively buy 1.3 gigawatts, or 1,325 megawatts, of energy storage capacity by the end of 2020--or roughly enough energy to supply nearly 1 million homes. The ambitious 1.3 gigawatts is a capacity target, because different storage technologies have different rates at which they can accept and discharge energy, and the mandate aims to be technology neutral.

Siemens Study: By 2030, worldwide power sector could cut CO2 emissions by amount equivalent to EU's total annual emissions
Global power demand set to rise by more than half again by 2030 ----- Power sector's CO2 emissions likely to rise by a quarter at the same time ----- Using natural gas instead of coal for power generation could even reduce emissions compared to today's levels ----- Dispensing with coal-fired power generation would prevent emissions of more than EU's total emissions
