Finding the Key to CIGS PV Reliability

Finding the Key to CIGS PV Reliability

This past week there was a photovoltaic (PV) workshop that probably wasn't on your radar. It was held at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) and is called the PV Module Reliability Workshop (PVMRW). This is where the nerds of the PV industry get together to discuss the factors that influence how long a PV module will last and other factors which might influence the long-term performance of a PV system. It wasn't on your radar because it is not something that influences big business. Or is it?

Factors That Influence Your Briquettes Burning

Factors That Influence Your Briquettes Burning

Energy briquettes are a sustainable fuel made by biomass briquettes presses from biomass materials such as saw dusts, wood shavings, straws, rice husks, wasted border, abandoned furniture, etc. Biomass briquettes have different sizes and shapes which are decided by the requirements of the combustion chamber and the biomass briquettes presses. Briquettes are used to replace fossil fuels by households and […]
How to Win Planning Permission for Renewable Energy Projects (and Influence People)

How to Win Planning Permission for Renewable Energy Projects (and Influence People)

At Tuesday afternoon’s POWER-GEN Europe and Renewable Energy World Europe conference session in Amsterdam, Paul Davison of PR firm Proteus discussed how to best communicate with the public regarding renewable energy projects, specifically energy from waste (EfW). “Why does the public regularly resist the development of renewable energy?” he asked, answering that most often it is because project developers have failed to effectively engage with them. While support for renewable power in Europe is overwhelming, and in his home country, the UK, 80 per cent of the public supports it, three in four planning applications fail. According to Davison, “as soon as you get specific” about the details of a project, such as where it will be located and what technology is involved, “you lose the public”.
