New California ISO policy will spur greater distributed generation

New California ISO policy will spur greater distributed generation

A new California Independent System Operator (CAISO) policy, which will begin allocating available deliverability capacity to Wholesale Distributed Generation (WDG) projects this summer without requiring these projects to undergo lengthy and expensive individual studies, has been submitted to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) for final approval (Docket No. ER12-2643-001). CAISO’s new Deliverability for Distributed Generation methodology will streamline WDG […]

Cool Earth Is Scaling Up Solar Energy Generation

Cool Earth Is Scaling Up Solar Energy Generation

Imagine a 1-megawatt solar power plant that has nothing to do with vast swaths of PV panels or mirrored troughs in a barren desert environment that require new transmission lines to population centers. Instead, picture a rolling, grassy field populated with 500 vertical poles that each hold two 8-foot-wide balloons. While cows graze among the poles, the large recyclable plastic balloons, each with a mirrored inside surface, truss and concentrated solar cell, follow the sun's transit thanks to a small electric motor. A utility substation is nearby.
The Race to the Bottom — Accelerating PV Insolvency

The Race to the Bottom — Accelerating PV Insolvency

The myth of solar PV competition is both subtle and blatant. “Competition is good for the PV industry” rings hollow based on today’s market. If that is true, then what are the reasons and can something be done about it. There just may be a difference between good healthy competition and organizational consuming unhealthy competition.
Partnering to Develop Hydro Projects

Partnering to Develop Hydro Projects

Partnerships are an important means for approaching the development of large multi-purpose water resource projects — projects where the major objectives include electric power production and water supply. While governments typically play critical roles in project development, partnerships have several advantages. First, partnerships often are the most effective way to ensure a project is achieved in a timely and cost-effective […]
