Extending the Life of Wind Turbine Components

Specialized PVD coatings and nitriding significantly increase the durability and lifespan of wind turbine components like roller bearings and planetary gears under metal-on-metal, high load conditions

What did You Miss When You Bought Your Solar System? How to Assure You Save For Your Systems Life Time

Though there is a perception that maintenance costs money and a solar system should run on its own, preventative maintenance can increase your ROI by 25% and reduce your cost significantly.

Understanding Battery Degradation

Batteries may degrade gracefully up to a point, then experience "rapid fade" and lose capacity quickly. A system that has been designed to meet a given level of demand will, at some point, be unable to do so.

Power Utility Replaces Aging Transformers with Customized, Drop-in Units

New-generation power transformers at Avista's Kettle Falls plant demonstrate the benefits of acquiring replacement units that fit existing footprints and connections.

Using Artificial Intelligence to Protect and Optimize Critical Assets

We use AI to protect and optimize critical assets - that goes for both cyber and physical. Our predictive analytics platform lets users take massive amounts of data and, in an automated fashion, quickly build models to find meaning in it, thereby significantly improving maintenance strategies and costs.

Pollution might be blocking 25% of potential solar power, study finds

Nick Lavars for New Atlas: "I thought the dirt had to affect their efficiencies, but there weren't any studies out there estimating the losses. So we put together a comprehensive model to do just that."

Can Offshore Wind Power Revive U.S. Ports?

Benjamin Storrow for Scientific American: Massachusetts, New York, New Jersey and Maryland are all eyeing up manufacturing and maintenance businesses that would support wind energy

Brushing Up On Wind Turbine Maintenance Techniques

When it comes to turbine failure, many maintenance engineers will look towards the gearbox, electrics, or rotary blade, but often the cause of failure can be one of the least expensive components in the system, and one which should be relatively easy to replace - the carbon brush, which is situated inside the generator.

The Atacama Desert, Extreme Conditions for Instrumentation

Due to extreme weather, high solar radiation, high UV index and the salinity of certain areas, the Atacama Desert in Chile presents conditions that contribute to the early degradation of instrumentation, communication and energy systems.

How to Manage Snow on Solar

The snow melting on your panels actually acts as a lubricant between the snow mass and the panel surface, which makes the solar panel a completely frictionless, slick surface that's the perfect candidate to allow that snow mass to come barreling off your roof.

Maintenance and Lubrication of Wind Turbines

Wind turbine gearboxes are challenging to maintain because they are often in remote locations, at elevated heights, and operating under extreme conditions.

Wind Turbine Repair

Reaching speeds of up to 200 mph, wind turbine blades are susceptible to damage from tiny particles including sand, rain, hail and salt spray.
