New regulatory factors to consider before developing your next solar site

New regulatory factors to consider before developing your next solar site

Navigating the ever-changing solar regulatory landscape by identifying constraints on solar developments is critical.
Scientists Go Eye to Eye with Renewable Energy Research

Scientists Go Eye to Eye with Renewable Energy Research

Joysticks, 3-D glasses, and room-sized stereoscopic views of some of the tiniest things in the universe — scientists at the Energy Department's National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) now have a new way to view and interact with their data.
Environmental risks persist no matter the asset: considerations for financing renewable power projects, part 1

Environmental risks persist no matter the asset: considerations for financing renewable power projects, part 1

Many view renewable energy (e.g., solar, wind) as having a low environmental risk profile and are not prepared for the myriad compliance and enforcement risks that may arise from the development of renewable power projects.  While it is true that, once operational, renewable assets typically do not emit air pollutants or discharge wastewater, and so may have significantly fewer compliance […]
SMA Releases Next Line of Sunny Boy Inverters

SMA Releases Next Line of Sunny Boy Inverters

SMA America LLC, the North American subsidiary of SMA Solar Technology AG, has unveiled the next generation of the Sunny Boy, one of the world's most popular lines of solar inverters. The new, high-frequency (HF) grid-tied inverters feature a new enclosure, reduced weight and modern graphic display.
Solar Dynamics Unveils Portable Solar Generator

Solar Dynamics Unveils Portable Solar Generator

Solar Dynamics, Inc. has announced the availability of the Harvester, a 12-volt DC, 750 watt AC portable power source that collects energy from the sun, providing users with power even miles from the nearest electrical outlet.
E-Fuel Unveils Home Ethanol System

E-Fuel Unveils Home Ethanol System

E-Fuel Corporation has launched a home ethanol system, which allows consumers to create their own ethanol and pump it directly into their cars. The EFuel100 MicroFueler can produce fuel for under US $1.00 per gallon, according to the company.
Lessons Learned:  Spurious SCADA

Lessons Learned: Spurious SCADA

George was annoyed. Almost every hydroelectric power project he had worked on over the past 20-odd years experienced problems with the supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) system, always detected when the system was being commissioned.
A Close Look at Investing in Renewable Energy

A Close Look at Investing in Renewable Energy

The total global investment in clean energy (renewable energy plus low-carbon technologies) in 2005 will be around $42.2 billion, according to estimates from New Energy Finance. Plus, total financial transaction value in the sector will exceed $56 billion when the impact of merger and acquisition (M&A) activity is included. But it can't stop there if renewable energy is to compete in the energy industry.
Battery Tech Remains the Solar Bottleneck

Battery Tech Remains the Solar Bottleneck

One of the biggest problems in solar energy remains the state of battery technology. That’s why battery technology is such a big focus with ARPA-E, the Department of Energy’s energy research program. Envia Systems and 24M were both winners in the latest round of grants, which aim to spur additional private sector investment. IBM is hot enough on the market […]
Assessing Ocean Energy Resources

Assessing Ocean Energy Resources

Coastal communities are increasingly expressing interest in developing ocean energy projects. The city of King Cove, Alaska, recently undertook work to identify sites suitable for further consideration for an ocean energy project. The investigative process used – a desktop analysis – proved to be an efficient and cost-effective way to objectively investigate many different sites and technologies.
