South Africa innovates to support soaring renewables growth

by FCBI Energy  (Jun. 10, 2016)

South Africa's 2010 Integrated Resource Plan (IRP) targeted 8.4 GW of wind and 8.4 GW solar capacity by 2030 and in 2011 the government launched its Renewable Energy Independent Power Producer Procurement Program (REIPPPP) to accelerate development.  The REIPPPP has thus far procured 3.4 GW of wind, 2.4 GW of PV and 400 MW of CSP capacity ...

CPV solar power system

by Power Inverter Co  (Feb. 25, 2014)

There are relatively few CPV applications still pursuing Si cells. The idea was somewhat "hot", no pun intended, when there was a silicon shortage going on, but silicon prices have dropped as new capacity has come online and the only successful CPV concepts being marketed which I know of are based on triple junction Ge/GaAs/InGaP or similar cells. ...

Haiti solar power

by Lakay Mouin Foundation  (Dec. 23, 2012)

The largely government owned electricity sector in Haiti is facing a deep, permanent crisis characterized by dramatic shortages and the lowest coverage of electricity in the Western Hemisphere with only about 12.5% of the population (25% if illegal connections are accounted for)having regular access to electricity. In addition, Haiti's large share ...

Solving solar-power issues

Certainly, no one would accept only having electricity during the day, and then only on clear days, if they have a choice. We need energy storage -- batteries. Unfortunately, batteries add a lot of cost and maintenance to the PV system. Currently, however, it's a necessity if you want to be completely independent. One way around the problem is to ...

Concentrating Solar Power

by U.S. Department of Energy - Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy  (Jan. 1, 2000)

Technology Overview   By collecting solar energy during daylight hours and storing it in hot molten salt, concentrating solar power technologies like power towers give utilities an alternative method for meeting peak loads. (Warren Gretz)  Concentrating solar power plants produce electric power by converting the sun’s energy ...

Solar power in growing pains

by European Energy Review (EER)  (Apr. 27, 2009)

The production of solar cells across the globe is experiencing unprecedented growth. In 2007 production increased by 70%, as opposed to an average of 40% in previous years. Today, the installed worldwide capacity amounts to 10 GigaWatt-peak (GWp). Although this is still only about 10% of installed wind power in the world, the other good news is ...

Solar powered dosing cube

by WES Ltd / Weschem Ltd  (Oct. 10, 2011)

WES Ltd has developed a solar powered version of its popular and recently improved dosing CUBE concept. Based around 24V DC versions of the Alldos DDI range of digital dosing pumps, the system provides all of the usual advantages of the dosing CUBE with the added benefit of being able to accurately dose chemicals in locations where no power supply ...

Solar Energy and Power Importance

by Greenshine New Energy LLC  (Jun. 12, 2014)

Have you ever wondered why solar energy or power is important? You are not alone in this because it is the common question of all. Before we can understand why solar energy is important we should have a good idea of what solar energy is. Solar energy is produced by the sun. It can be harnessed like any other type of energy and used to ...

Types of Solar Power System for your Power Needs

by Blue Sail Energy Solutions  (May 12, 2016)

Frequent power cuts, shortage of electricity and slow power generation are some of the growing concerns that the world is facing.  It’s time now to look out for alternatives for generating electricity. Without electricity, life comes to a standstill and it’s impossible to imagine a day without it. Thus, alternatives for ...

Are Solar Powered Drones The Way Forward?

by Greenshine New Energy LLC  (Apr. 9, 2014)

Just recently, Titan Aerospace released a video of a solar-powered drone that will be put through rigorous testing later on this year. Named the Solara 50, the drone can theoretically fly without having to land constantly to fuel up. The implications are numerous – from the fact that a drone that does not need to land can be used in the ...
