ALBEDO: SUN GATHERED FROM THE SOIL

In this White Paper, the BiTEC analysis center places special emphasis on the importance of albedo to achieve more satisfactory results in obtaining energy. In this way, we conclude that the lighter colors of the soil and a softer texture result in a higher albedo and a greater generation of energy in bifacial modules.

BITEC: HOW TO SIMULATE BIFACIAL PROJECTS?

This whitepaper is the second part of a summary presenting the results obtained from November 2018 until March 2019 at Soltec’s Bifacial Tracker Evaluation Center (BiTEC) in Livermore, CA, USA. BiTEC studied Bifacial Gain in photovoltaic modules developed according to the two most common tracker market configurations nowadays: one-in-portrait (1P) and two-in-portrait (2P). Results obtained during fall and winter months show that individual modules in two-in-portrait configuration trackers obtain a Bifacial Gain of 16.8% under high albedo conditions (59.6%), which is 2.2% more than the same modules under a 1P configuration trackers for identical conditions.

KEEPING IT LEAN IN 2019

Rooftop solar has come a long way over the past decade. The ever-improving quality of equipment and components, enhanced level of expertise, consumer-friendly financing and huge price drops have all contributed mightily to turning residential and commercial/industrial solar into a thriving multibillion-dollar construction/energy sector in the United States and other countries. As the industry grows and more contractors get into the solar business, we know how important it is to provide useful tips and solid information on installation best practices from the mounting perspective—especially those that help installers keep their operations lean, the quality of their work high, and their businesses profitable.

2019 GLOBAL PHOTOVOLTAIC RELIABILITY STUDY

This program is one of the most thorough of its kind, guided by a multistep inspection protocol at sites in North America, Europe, Asia, and the Middle East and staffed with some of the most experienced scientists in the solar industry. This team of experts has compiled global data from 6.5M modules, 355 Installations and 1.8GW of Total Power

PV, WIND AND BATTERY STORAGE TECHNOLOGIES AND APPLICATIONS TO MAXIMIZE PROFITS

In recent years energy storage has emerged as a key ally for the renewables industry, allowing excess production to be stored and sold when market conditions are favorable. And while the addition of batteries to renewable projects was originally a costly exercise, a rapid fall in the price of lithium-ion battery technologies now means solar and wind plants can be equipped with significant levels of energy storage and still remain competitive.

LEARN HOW 3 SOLAR PROJECTS CUT COSTS AND SAFEGUARDED THEIR SOLAR INVESTMENT WITH SOLAR FLEXRACK

The robust design fully supports the array weight ensuring that all loads flow from the modules down through the racking system and into the ground – without placing secondary stresses into the modules or depending on the modules to brace the system. By protecting the most important component of your solar system, the solar power modules, Solar FlexRack safeguards solar project budgets.

ENVIRONMENTAL MONITORING FOR OPTIMIZING SOLAR POWER GENERATION EFFICIENCY

Environmental monitoring is critical to optimizing the efficiency of solar power generation. Beginning with site assessment, on-site meteorological monitoring factors into overall project performance and ROI. Weather stations provide reliable data on parameters such as solar radiation, wind speed and direction, temperature, and precipitation that influence location and efficiency of solar panels.

QUADRUPOLE MASS SPECTROMETERS IN THE PAST 30 YEARS

Design, equipment, fields of application: Many things have changed with quadrupole mass spectrometers (QMS) over the last 30 years. They have become more compact, durable, versatile and digital. Initially used primarily in research, QMS are nowadays utilized in the semiconductor industry, freeze-drying or leak detection, for example.

A JOURNEY ACROSS THE 51ST STATE: HIGHLIGHTS AND INSIGHTS FROM SEPA’S INITIATIVE ON THE FUTURE OF THE ELECTRIC POWER SECTOR

Dive into the three phases of the 51st State Initiative that initiated the creation of novel ideas for a better energy future. As a capstone to the 51st State Initiative, this paper captures the evolution of thinking through the initiative’s phases.
