Management of growth: Concentrating Photovoltaics

Along with wind power, argues Ralf Leutz, concentrating photovoltaics (CPV) offers one of the most promising utility-scale, and sustainable, renewable energy technology options. CPV has the potential of an efficiency reaching and exceeding 50%. And in the right locations, will have electricity costs low enough to be competitive with fossil and nuclear power.

Feed-in Tariffs Go Global: Policy in Practice

Feed-in Tariffs Go Global: Policy in Practice

Globally, feed-in tariffs (FITs), also known as 'advanced renewable tariffs' (ARTs) or 'renewable energy payments' (REPs) in North America, have gone from strength to strength. Such schemes pay renewable energy producers a set rate (tariff) for each unit of electricity fed into the grid, and generally oblige power companies to purchase all electricity from eligible producers in their service area over a long period of time -- usually 15 to 20 years.

Using Reliability-Centered and Condition-Based Maintenance Practices

Using Reliability-Centered and Condition-Based Maintenance Practices

For many hydro facilities, the use of reliability-centered or condition-based maintenance practices extends the duration between maintenance routines, improves unit availability, and even eliminates some forced outages.
Unleashing the Wind Tiger

Unleashing the Wind Tiger

Until China's wind sector started its turbocharged acceleration three or four years ago, India had been the clear leader in wind in Asia and amongst developing countries. A wind pioneer, year after year it has ranked in the top five nations in terms of new installations. India added a respectable 1576 MW during the financial year ending 31 March 2010 (compared with 1917 MW added in Germany and 2459 MW in Spain), bringing total wind capacity to 11,758.43 MW. It is currently in fifth place globally in terms of total installed capacity. The leading state is Tamil Nadu, in the south, which boasts an outstanding level of resource and currently yields about half of India's wind production (see Tables 1 and 2 below), as well as dominating new installations.
