Resistance Beyond the Four Walls - Industrial Resistors Aren't Just for the Factory Floor

Resistors are commonplace power components in industrial buildings - but their use is not limited to the factory floor. In many industries, resistors play a vital role in the power management of electrical equipment.

Battery Safety Concerns Can Be Addressed With Proper Design and Manufacturing

More and more homeowners are requesting battery backup solutions as part of their solar power installations. With increased adoption of solar power, concerns about fire hazards are likely to grow. Are these concerns justified?

Going Green With Obsolete Equipment - Tackling the Hidden Carbon of Manufacturing

Look around you. Chances are you're surrounded by manufactured products - from the chair you're sitting on, to the device you're reading this on. Each step along the manufacturing process of those products has some impact on the environment.

How Farmers Harvest Their Own Power with Solar Energy

If you think about it, an industry that is wholly dependent on nature and the environment should look to the sun for free power.

Using Carbon Additives to Improve Performance of AGM Batteries

Batteries that operate in partial state of charge (PSOC) environments can suffer from reduced charge acceptance that can lead to progressive capacity loss.

Solar Spotlight: Ageto Energy Powering Community Projects

Of the many suppliers and customers SMA works with, one outstanding partner is Ageto Energy of Fort Collins, Colorado. Ageto produces microgrid control systems, and has selected SMA's CORE1 Inverter in their projects around the world since 2017.

Comparing the Top Home Battery Storage Technologies

Battery storage is the fastest growing market segment in solar, creating new markets as well as solar retrofit expansion opportunities across the USA for renewable projects large and small.

Advances in Solar Panel Technology in Recent Years and Its Use in Solar Car Development

Currently, a high-efficiency car company, Aperta Motors, is conducting test drives and safety tests on a new design of cars. These Aperta are three-wheelers, covered by 34 square feet of solar panels, which provide enough energy to drive up to 40 miles on a sunny day.

Best Practices for Installing a Solar-Ready Low Slope Roof

When installing a solar array, having a coverboard as part of the roofing assembly is a best practice. As such, most manufacturers of solar mounts test and evaluate their mechanical attachment products with a coverboard over polyisocyanurate (polyiso) insulation.

The Road to Greener Hydrogen - Hydrogen Now Isn't Everything That Hydrogen Could Be

Whether hydrogen fuel holds the key to delivering widespread renewable power remains under heavy debate. What cannot be argued is the shear investment that backers are putting into the energy source - as much as 470 billion euros by 2050.

Beyond Declining Battery Prices: 6 Ways to Evaluate Energy Storage in 2021

2021 is expected to be another record-breaking year for storage, but with technological innovation accelerating across the market, renewable energy asset owners need to carefully select safe and reliable systems to protect their storage investments.

4 Effective Tactics for a Successful C&I Solar Sales Strategy

Whether you're a long-time solar contractor or an HVAC or electrical contractor looking to get into solar, an effective strategy remains crucial for success.

Using Wind Energy for Hydrogen Production : An Innovative Concept

As a way to resolve wind curtailment, the integration of hydrogen fuel at a wind farm allows flexibility to shift production to best match the resource availability with its particular operational needs and market factors.

Europe's Sustainable Finance Taxonomy: the Challenges and Opportunities

The EU's proposed sustainability legislation poses hydrogen manufacturers a problem - if grid electricity is used in production, it will not be considered green. So, what's the solution? Here, we consider wave power as an off grid alternative
