Calculating Battery Backup & Storage in Residential Solar

Using software for PV system design will reduce time spent and costs for each project. What sets Aurora apart from other software tools are our accuracy, pioneering technology, experience, and our awesome customer success team.

NASA and HeroX Seek Innovative Energy Solutions to Power Lunar Activities

The first phase of the challenge presents a mission scenario with three mission activities. Teams will choose one or more activities to address by proposing an energy distribution, management, and/or storage solution.

Why This Overlooked Li-Ion Battery Component is So Crucial

Nickel's major advantage in battery applications is that it delivers a higher energy density and greater storage capacity at a lower cost than other metals. In li-ion battery production, there are two types of cathode chemistries dependent on this material.

Argentinian Company Unearths Clean, Renewable Technology

In Cerro Negro Córdoba, Argentina, sits the Fluorita Cerro Negro hybrid PV-diesel plant. It powers a mining operation that specializes in fluorite extraction and processing, without any grid service to power its operations.

Nobel Prize Winning Inventor of the Lithium-ion Battery Has His Eyes Set on the Next Big Breakthrough in Energy Storage

While heading the Inorganic Chemistry Laboratory at Oxford University nearly 40 years ago, he discovered the feasibility of lithium cobalt oxide as a cathode material, which enabled the commercialization of the first rechargeable lithium-ion battery by the Sony Corporation.

The First Koolbridge Solar™ Smart Load Center™ (SLC) Built Finds a Home in an Off-Grid Cabin.

Other major components for the solar setup included four 310-Watt PV panels, a DC-to-AC inverter, charge controller and eight 12 Volt deep-cycle marine batteries.

S-5-PVKIT 2.0 Case Study - The Boulder JCC

The challenge was to find a cost-effective PV solution that presented an ROI, which would make the project a no-brainer from a financial standpoint.

AltEnergymag - Fall Solar Product Special

It has been over 6 months without any in person events. With that in mind we are putting together a special feature article for the fall to highlight some of the new products and services our partners have rolled out during that time.

Solar Power International Trade Show 2020

The virtual micro-conferences will be live and on-demand. They will cover Regulatory Innovation and Policy Drivers, Renewable Energy Finance and Development, Asset Management and Managing Growth, Deploying Energy Storage, Grid Integration, and the EV Connection.

Remote Power Aids Mountain Rescue in Georgia

Equipment for the installation was delivered by helicopter on three flights - owing to space and weight limitations. Two engineers accompanied the cargo, and their work was assisted by local staff.

Renewable Energy for Wildfire Management

As the climate crisis gets worse, so do wildfires. These fires occur in instances of drought and increased temperatures - two consequences of global warming. Therefore, the climate crisis increases the frequency, severity and intensity of these fires.

6 Ways That Ocean Wave Energy Compliments Other Renewable Energy Sources

By breaking down some of the challenges with wind, solar, and hydroelectric power we show how the benefits of wave energy are uniquely positioned to compliment these resources and make our grid more efficient, and sustainable.

How to Obtain the Extra Energy Gain Promised by Bifacial Technology

The solar generation gain in the change from monofacial to bifacial is currently around 6-8%, a percentage known as bifacial gain, which is conditioned by multiple factors.

MT Solar Overcomes Labor Shortages, Boosts Quality and Improves Productivity with the Universal Robots-powered Vectis Cobot Welding Tool

A Vectis Cobot Welding Tool now handles a wide range of welds, enabling quick change-overs and optimized production. MT Solar overcame labor shortages and freed current staff from repetitive welding tasks while successfully handling a 300% surge in demand.

What Is Preventing Some Countries From Making the Switch to 100% Renewables?

The most stubborn barrier is the cost of installation. Renewables are designed for simplicity, meaning solar panels and wind turbines are relatively easy and inexpensive to maintain, the initial price of the equipment to power companies and homeowners is not insurmountable.

RBI Solar - Dahlia Has You Covered

RBI Solar - Dahlia Has You Covered

What if you could maximize the Ground Coverage Ratio (GCR) on your next project and not have to worry about the complicated variables that come with a tracker system? With a low tilt and clearance design, Dahlia® has the highest GCR of any fixed-tilt system in the marketplace. The system is available in three tilt options (7.5, 10 and 12.5 degrees) and designed to accommodate any sized PV module. The lightweight system is engineered with fewer components, several of which are shipped to job sites pre-assembled. This design feature reduces freight costs and rapidly trims the amount of on-site installation time required to complete construction. Maximizing PV coverage on a site can lead to an increase of production, which creates greater financial return for project owners. Over 100 MW of Dahlia® projects have been deployed across the United States, in regions of variable snow and wind loads. How much can Dahlia® cover and save you on your next project?
