  • PV Balance of Systems holds the key to grid parity in the US

    PV Insider reveals the importance of Balance of Systems (BoS) for lowering LCOE and maximizing performance in 2012 In 2011 the solar PV industry in the United States installed 1.86GW of photovoltaic systems and is expected to install a full gigawatt more in 2012, totalling a massive 2.8GW. Simultaneously, prices have also continued to decline since 2009. Average module prices have fallen nearly ...

  • CSP Thermal Energy Storage vital for utilities and grid operators

    The modern age of CSP can arguably be traced back to the 354MW Solar Energy Generating Systems (SEGS) in the Mojave desert, which now make up the oldest operating plant in the world, as well as one of the largest. However, recent developments in the industry will see SEGS eclipsed by 5 projects that are scheduled to come online in 2013-14, with a combined total of 1312MW. The five plants in ...

  • Bio-SNG featured in energy world in February 2011

    The use of bio-fuels for heating and lighting pre-dates the use of fossil fuels by thousands of years. However, unlike with fossil fuels, a systematic knowledge of the challenges posed by solid bio-fuels is not as widely understood, a fact attributable to the exponential acceleration of fossil fuel usage as global demand increased during the industrial revolution. In the wake of this, producers ...

  • As renewable electricity is added to the grid, are power markets misfiring?

    When increasing megawatt-hours of variable solar and wind energy began coursing through the grid, the initial concern was an operational one—could grid reliability be maintained. But it turns out those megawatt-hours are creating market challenges, as well. What needs to be done to right the markets? Travis Kavulla, vice chairman of the Montana Public Service Commission, and Albert Cheung, ...

  • CSP cost forecasts undervalue benefit to future grid balancing

    CSP generation costs could drop to $77/MWh by 2025 but storage and hybrid solar plants can provide further value by following load, Jose Alfonso Nebrera, Director of Spanish engineering firm ACS SCE, said at the MENASOL 2016 conference on May 26. Global renewable energy expansion is reducing the cost of solar and wind energy while increasing grid intermittency and the need for ...
