LF Energy and the Open Source Security Foundation (OpenSSF) have released a new whitepaper on how open source software is critical to the innovation and transformation of our energy infrastructure, and how to use it in a way that shields against cyber threats. The whitepaper covers best practices for open source development within the energy sector with a focus on four key areas: The Evolution of Energy Systems; The Role of Open Source in Energy; Current State of Cybersecurity in Energy; Best Practices in Open Source for Cybersecurity
Just selling more EVs is not enough. The Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) passed in August 2022 includes multiple provisions to make electric vehicles more financially attractive to consumers, as well as incentives for charging deployment and domestic manufacturing. Now is the time for coordination between all stakeholders, including utilities, carmakers, and technology providers, to capitalize on the momentum of the IRA. The infrastructure to support this transition must provide a positive experience for consumers as they shift away from internal combustion engines and move toward a new way of driving. Download the report to explore the challenges, opportunities – and progress – in supporting EV adoption and integration at scale.
Solar trackers have revolutionized the utility-scale solar segment providing the economics necessary to make solar supplied energy very affordable and competitive with non-renewable sources. Learn how in this whitepaper.
Snake Tray’s patented Solar Snake Max XL is a completely trenchless cable management solution for utility grade solar and renewable energy plants.
Since the late 1880s, little has changed with the U.S. power grid. Technological advancements now allow us to rethink our approach to energy, with myriad benefits for individuals, businesses, and society as a whole. In order to achieve this transformation, companies on the front lines of technology will require support from knowledgeable PCBA designers and manufacturers who have the skills and capabilities to design, manufacture, and produce the required next-generation products. Throughout this white paper, we will discuss challenges and opportunities related to building a next-generation power grid.
A framework for building a business case for autonomous drone systems—also known as drone-in-a-box—on solar farms. Solar asset owners and asset managers can learn about the best use cases for autonomous drones in utility-scale solar, technical and regulatory considerations, and how to calculate a return on investment.
Download Sunfolding’s new paper, The Power of Air, to find out how the advantages that pneumatic power brings to other industries—applying brakes to fast-moving trucks and trains, creating vibration for industrial hoppers and bins, or pressing and cutting raw materials for metalworking and machine tooling—make air a superior source of power in the solar industry.
Learn the benefit of adding a desiccated butyl edge sealant to the photovoltaic (PV) module package by examining the impact of desiccant on moisture breakthrough time and the test results demonstrating adhesion to qualify as a cemented joint.
The call for renewable energy projects around the globe is apparent from private sector emissions reduction targets through federal government and state plans and legislation. This whitepaper from Guidehouse Insights explores how the monitoring and controls (M&C) technology market is evolving to meet the need for advanced solutions to optimize solar and storage assets both behind-the-meter (BTM) and front-of-the-meter (FTM).
The research outlines how industry stakeholders should be thinking about their solar and storage project portfolios and the ways advanced M&C technologies improve performance, create new value stream opportunities over time, and reduce asset risk.
This white paper explains how battery analytics prevent thermal runaway by continuously analyzing battery management system data.
California is the largest solar market in the United States in installed capacity and number of solar projects, with 15,967 megawatts of utility-scale installations at the beginning of 2023. California also leads the nation in lost revenue from asset underperformance, with an estimated $90.5 in revenue anticipated to be lost by the state’s utility-scale solar installations through the end of 2023. If rigorous inspections are not performed and hardware is not remediated, these losses are a conservative estimate of the state-wide tally of equipment-driven underperformance.
Key technical advantages of Discover Tubular Battery vs Flat Plate Battery for use in renewable and stationary applications.
Examining the mystery, myths and confusion with respect to retrofitting Lithium batteries into existing solar off-grid systems.
This white paper demonstrates the economics of green hydrogen, including how the hourly carbon impact of hydrogen can help operators optimize their business decisions on the operating protocol of electrolyzers when these are tied directly to wind and solar facilities
The studies have been carried out by an independent consultant, with data provided by Soltec for a 50 MW plant using proprietary software.
As the world transitions to sustainable energy sources, the hydrogen economy represents significant opportunity for energy producers with the right tools and strategies to evolve alongside it. The green hydrogen value chain will be more complex and involve more stakeholders than those of conventional energy sources, and without the solid digital tools, companies will find it difficult to take full advantage of all the hydrogen economy has to offer. Our white paper, “Empowering green hydrogen: Data’s key role in sustainable energy generation,” incorporates a survey of 112 utility companies
This whitepaper provides an overview of DC-coupled battery energy storage solutions and DC clipping recapture. By utilizing clipping recapture, Eneon's solutions offer a constant power generation curve during the day while also capturing and using clipped energy that would otherwise be wasted. This paper explores the benefits of DC-coupled battery energy storage solutions and provides a detailed explanation of how Eneon's approach to DC clipping recapture can optimize energy usage.
Soltec’s new algorithm for bifacial modules searches for the optimal position of solar trackers in a PV plant taking into account the sum of front and back radiation.
Learn which BOS & revenue levers have the largest impact on your project NPV. You'll get: Real-world project examples that show why rules of thumb can't be assumed; Insights into CapEx and Revenue levers such as labor, foundation and racking costs, and module energy degradation and production; Detailed breakdowns of the calculations and comparisons you'll need when sourcing modules for your large-scale projects.
Solar + Storage is hot. Really hot. Like the market is going to double six times in the next 15 years hot, according to Bloomberg New Energy Finance. This whitepaper covers a variety of topics from the basics of what Solar + Storage is all about through to the benefits its provides, different topologies for deployment and the details of what is really involved in executing a successful Solar + Storage project. The article seeks to explain every buzz word you may have heard about Solar + Storage, so it’s a great lead for both experts as well as those looking to learn more about this exciting field. In particular, the article highlights the benefits Alencon’s unique PV-Centric DC-coupled approach to deploying Solar + Storage by using the SPOT family of DC-DC optimizers.
The whitepaper discusses the challenges and opportunities that will arise from the broad adoption of sustainable energy solutions. Additionally, the paper identifies how companies like PassKey, a subsidiary of SK E&S, are focused on the energy transition and are supporting the evolution to a more sustainable and reliable future.
This white paper explains both the basics of EV charging as they stand today as well as the challenges involved in scaling up the faster charging approaches we will need to implement to meet the current Administration’s EV penetration goals. This white paper introduces a novel approach to charging EVs faster at scale based on Alencon’s unique, galvanically isolated DC:DC converters, a concept we call "The Gas Station of the Future."
