Electric Fuel Energy (EFE) has developed a novel Iron Flow energy storage technology that is projected to be less costly, safer, and more environmentally friendly than other large-scale battery storage solutions.
First Solar’s Operations and Maintenance (O&M) has announced it now has 5 gigawatts (GW) of assets in its portfolio of solar power plants, firmly establishing it as one of the largest O&M provider in the world.
To reduce its carbon emissions by more than 20 per cent and decrease its energy operating costs, the municipality of Middelkerke installed rooftop PV systems with outputs totaling 1 MW. The solar generators cover 17 buildings of the municipality.
The famous scientific and communication centre in United Kingdom has now a 350 kilowatt solar generator on its roofs to consume the clean energy in the operation of the station. The generator was recently installed, the solar module came from Hanwha Q-Cells.
The global market in PV is on speed and gaining more momentum towards accelerating growth. In contradiction: The new deployments in Europe pace very slow, some experts talk about stagnation with 8 GW last year. The surviving manufacturers of solar modules and inverters still face hard times – no end in sight.
Renusol is introducing its new ballasted flat-roof mounting system FS10-S and FS18-S for mounting south-facing photovoltaic panels. It requires few components and uses especially short rails, making the system price-efficient and quick to install. The system will be presented at Ecobuild fair in London from today on.
To cope with the strong growth and manage the increasing amount of renewable energy in the grid, market-driven innovations are more important than ever. The awards of Intersolar and ees are the best indicator for upcoming inventions in PV.
Legal and normative aspects were the main topics at the BIPV seminar at Kloster Banz. The new European standard EN 50583 was finished Octobre last year. And there were a lot of discussions about an explosive judgement of the European Court strengthening EU standards.
