Solar Tariffs Hold Back Q3 Installations, Scramble Project Timelines As Procurement Pipeline Booms

For the first time since 2015, quarterly additions of utility-scale solar photovoltaics (PV) fell below 1 gigawatt (GW), highlighting the impact of the tariffs and the uncertainty surrounding them in late 2017 and early 2018.

ENERGY STORAGE AND RENEWABLE ENERGY AS A SYSTEM: THE ENERGY FUTURE AS A BUSINESS MODEL

The potential offered by these large-scale storage systems is particularly clear when they are used in conjunction with PV, because solar power is becoming ever more affordable thanks to the continuously falling prices of PV systems.

A Battery for Hire: AC Vs. DC Coupling for Solar + Energy Storage Projects

Although the phrase "solar + storage" is thrown around in energy circles frequently, little attention is usually given to what kind of solar + storage people are actually referring. Generally speaking, solar + storage can be configured in three possible ways

Want sustained solar growth? Just add energy storage.

Solar resources will need to provide firm, flexible energy commitments even when the sun goes down, as well as critical grid services like frequency regulation and spinning reserves to stabilize the grid.

What is Energy Sprawl?

Energy sprawl is the product of the total amount of energy produced annually and the land-use concentration of production. Basically, this means the amount of energy that can be produced in a given amount of space.

Solar and Onshore Wind Leading as Cheapest Source of New Bulk Power

Every half year, BloombergNEF runs its Levelized Cost of Electricity (LCOE) analysis, a worldwide assessment of the cost competitiveness of different power generating and energy storage technologies - excluding subsidies.

Preparing For NEC 2017

NEC 2017 690.12 is a listed provision for module level control on PV arrays installed on or in buildings, but its implementation was delayed. That provision goes live in January 2019, updating the PV Rapid Shutdown System (PVRSS) requirements.

Cloud County Community College Goes Solar

New solar energy courses-spurred by the installation of a new on-campus solar site-will train students for high-tech, high-wage jobs in the exciting, emerging solar industry through innovative teaching and educational partnerships.

Pulling the Strings: a Look at the Latest Trends in Utility Solar Farm Designs and How Their Efficiency Can Be Improved

As energy costs increase and governments offer incentives for increased use of renewable energy, utilities are building more large solar farms, and pushing to increase their efficiency.

Trends in the Residential Solar Industry

By storing clean solar power in a battery, people can use that power at night when the sun isn't shining, withstand power outages that are growing in frequency, keep the grid stable during times of high usage, and make 100% renewable, clean energy achievable.

The Sense Home Energy Monitor

Sense tracks energy usage in the entire home and for many customers it's eye opening. You can track what's on, what's off and how much energy they are using.

Concentrator Photovoltaics Shows Peak Performance - Module Efficiency Reaches 41.4 %

In the EU-funded project CPVMatch, a consortium of research institutions and companies has demonstrated how to optimize both of these aspects and thus better exploit the potential of this technology.

4 Residential Solar Tech Advancements That Are Making It Big in 2019

Some of the notable advancements that have come to the fore include solar skins, solar roof tiles, floating solar farms, the latest solar mounts, and so on.

Tesla slashes prices on home solar systems to spur sales

Effective on Thursday, price quotes for potential solar customers will be between $3,000 and $5,000 lower, representing savings of about 15 to 25 percent.
