One of the most effective ways to dramatically reduce an event's carbon footprint is to look at how it is powered. Thanks to readily available portable systems, there are a range of power solutions that can make major events more sustainable.
Ground mount farm with bifacial panels and power optimizers reduces diesel reliance, creates local solar jobs
Electrification is just beginning in many parts of the world. For western countries that have enjoyed electricity for a century, this is hard to imagine, but for 1 billion people, kerosene lamps are their reality.
Jim McDowall, Saft Senior Technical Advisor, explains how a small salmon fishing town in Alaska has implemented a grid-scale 1MW energy storage system (ESS) to reduce its reliance on diesel generators.
The benefits go much beyond quality illumination. Eventually, the un-electrified households received grid connection. In spite of receiving grid connection, the SDS continued to have its benefits among the households.
The program currently encompasses twenty-four monitoring stations placed in publicly-accessible areas of communities surrounding the Nevada National Security Site (NNSS). To keep these systems running full-time, the DRI turned to Morningstar solar charge controllers.
Remote communities often operate without the benefit of a main utility grid and depend on diesel fuel for power generation. This dependence on diesel represents not only economic cost, but also environmental cost in the form of greenhouse gas emissions and noise pollution.
Surging popularity of renewable energy sources like wind and solar along with growing electrification initiatives across rural sectors might accelerate the adoption of off-grid services.
The increase in renewable energy homes and small businesses began as a way to lower power usage costs, but with more people sequestered in one place using electrical accessories, battery storage systems can suffer if they are not purposely built for energy storage use.
SimpliPhi Power Teams Up with Footprint Project to Deliver Clean Energy Microgrid to Field Hospital for Matamoros Migrant Camp Fighting COVID-19
SimpliPhi's batteries combined with Solar PV are providing power 24/7 for the COVID-19 'pop-up' clinic at the Matamoros Migrant Camp of 3,000 asylum seekers in Mexico at the Texas border
EcoSol Energy Systems a leading energy, water and sustainability consulting headquartered Dubai, United Arab Emirates was tapped to develop a lighting system to keep the oil fields running safely and efficiently.
"Bleutech Park is paving the road for new developments with its forward thinking approach to putting public safety first by planning the integration of advanced technologies like autonomous security robots alongside the likes of power, water management and Internet service."
Melinda and Ezra Auerbach began living off grid on Lasqueti Island in the 1970s. Since then, their lifestyle has literally evolved from kerosene and candles to dishwashers and Wi-Fi.
The Humbrella integrates functions including off-grid power supply, electricity storage, night lighting, and terminal charging. It can collect sunshine and convert it into electricity and save up to 40000mAh of power, enough for 10 hours of quality night reading time.
Panasonic will donate its products such as solar generation and storage systems, provide education and technical training to cultivate human resources, and help develop local business models taking advantage of electricity.

The SolarEdge PV inverter combines sophisticated digital control technology with efficient power SolarEdge's EV charging single phase inverter offers homeowners the ability to charge electric vehicles up to six times faster than a standard Level 1 charger through an innovative solar boost mode that utilizes grid and PV charging simultaneously. This product is the world's first EV charger with an integrated PV inverter. Reducing the hassle of installing separately a standalone EV charger and a PV inverter, the EV charging inverter eliminates the need for additional wiring, conduit and a breaker installation. By installing an EV charger that is integrated with an inverter, no additional dedicated circuit breaker is needed, saving space and ruling out a potential upgrade to the main distribution panel. Whether you own an EV now or just want to be EV-ready, future-proof your home with SolarEdge.
