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.
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?
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.
If you think about it, an industry that is wholly dependent on nature and the environment should look to the sun for free power.
Batteries that operate in partial state of charge (PSOC) environments can suffer from reduced charge acceptance that can lead to progressive capacity loss.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
Learn how remote thermal monitoring enables early detection of high resistance joints and prevents overheating, increasing asset lifetime.
