  • Solar photovoltaics: oligopsony, non-market decision-making and the paradoxical persistence of unprofitability

    Record volumes of solar PV power plant installations have been achieved on the back of feed-in-tariffs and fiscal incentives. On the supply side, however, equipment manufacturers have been filing for bankruptcy protection in quick succession. This paper is an attempt to unravel the mystery underlying this inequilibrium, and to suggest a way forward for the solar PV sector to thrive. The ...

  • Photovoltaics: Basic Design Principles and Components

    If you are thinking of generating your own electricity, you should consider a photovoltaic (PV) system—a way to generate electricity by using energy from the sun. These systems have several advantages: they are cost-effective alternatives in areas where extending a utility power line is very expensive; they have no moving parts and require little maintenance; and they produce electricity ...

  • BLM issues licenses for two California solar plants

    The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has approved the construction of two solar power plants in California, the first of nine solar projects that could get the go-ahead to begin construction by the end of the year and thereby qualify for federal tax credits. BLM issued permits for the 709 MW Imperial Valley Solar Project, a concentrating solar power (CSP) plant that Tessara Solar is developing ...

  • Artificial neural network based models for forecasting electricity generation of grid connected solar PV power plant

    This paper presents an artificial neural network (ANN) approach for forecasting the performance of electric energy generated output from a working 25-kWp grid connected solar PV system and a 100-kWp grid connected PV system installed at Minicoy Island of Union Territory of Lakshadweep Islands. The ANN interpolates among the solar PV generation output and relevant parameters such as solar ...

  • Solar fuels: how planes and cars could be powered by the sun

    Solar energy is the world’s most plentiful and ubiquitous energy source, and researchers around the world are pursuing ways to convert sunlight into a useful form. Most people are aware of solar photovoltaics that generate electricity and solar panels that produce hot water. But there is another thrust of solar research: turning sunlight into liquid fuels. Research in solar-derived liquid ...

  • Harnessing the Sun to Power the Canal Road Treatment Plant NJ American Water Company

    To better control the escalating cost of electric power generation at its Canal Road Treatment Plant, New Jersey American Water decided to implement an environmentally friendly solution. The installation of a 500 kWdc solar photovoltaic energy plant allows NJAW to achieve strong financial results, while providing clean, reliable, and cost saving energy to the benefit of our customers and ...

  • Wind power growth in the US

    Last year was a banner year for renewable energy in the United States, especially for the wind industry. As the recent REN21 Renewables 2007 Global Status Report highlights, the industry broke all past global records, installing 5,244 megawatts (MW) of new wind energy capacity in 2007, or 30 percent of all new U.S. capacity added. This brings the cumulative national total close to 17,000 ...

  • Solar`s Time to Rise and Shine.

    Photovoltaic efficiency records are being shattered, thanks to recent advances in materials science. Last month, a researcher at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory in Golden, Colo., loaded a postage stamp–sized solar cell onto a tray and placed it under a high-intensity pulse solar simulator. The simulator flashed a 2.5 millisecond pulse of light, and 19 mirrors reflected the ...

  • The Emerging Power of Microgrids

    Over many decades, the centralized power grid — a one-way flow of electricity, generated by large, remote power plants and distributed over miles of transmission lines to homes and businesses — succeeded in delivering electricity across continents to billions. But in recent years the system’s shortcomings have become increasingly ...

  • How to grow a solar energy garden

    Getting energy from the sun is a great idea. However, installing solar panels house-by-house is slow, costly and cumbersome, and downright inefficient if the goal is to bring solar to the masses. This problem troubled Paul Spencer after he built his own uber-efficient, custom solar home near Aspen, Colorado in 2004.  The engineer and serial entrepreneur wondered how he could replicate his ...

  • Will natural gas dim solar’s shine?

    As natural gas booms, renewable energy proponents ponder whether it will serve as a bridge or roadblock to photovoltaic power On the outskirts of downtown St. Paul, Minn., Xcel Energy’s High Bridge Generating Station offers an iconic view of the current state of electrical generation in the United ...

  • Wind & solar energy and nature conservation

    Climate change and the degradation of ecosystems and biodiversity cannot be solved in isolation. Land and marine ecosystems play a crucial role in the climate system, capturing roughly half of carbon dioxide emissions generated by human activities (UNEP, 2009). Protecting biodiversity preserves ecosystem services that are important for regulating the climate and helping us to adapt to the impacts ...

  • How Does Solar Energy Transformed into Electricity?

    Many years ago, solar energy was never been the subject of all talks. Basically because the solar energy was never given that importance in people’s day to day life before. They just ignore and did not give attention on its importance. They fail to realize the importance of it. Now, as the period of modernized society where new technologies and innovations occurred came, the demand for ...
