  • NREL data set shows clouds` effects on solar power

    The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL)has produced and made available a rich data set showing what happens, second-by-second, when clouds pass over a solar power installation. Seventeen measurement stations near Hawaii’s Honolulu International Airport on the island of Oahu collected data at 1-second intervals over the course of a year. ...

  • A solar suburb within a solar city

    The $32 million Solar City in Townsville will help the local community save energy, save money and reduce carbon pollution, Environment Minister Peter Garrett said today. Visiting Magnetic Island for the launch of the Smart Lifestyle Centre at Horseshoe Bay, Mr Garrett said the Magnetic Island Solar Suburb would be the main component of Townsville Solar City, with the installation of 2500 smart ...

  • Solar PV inverter system

    The only fuel of a solar PV inverter system is the incident irradiance. Of course, there are many local factors that make it difficult to evaluate this local resource accurately without actually measuring it (which is obviously the best thing to do). All solar inverters involve a lot of simplifying assumptions. For example, shading is an important factor, but is usually incorrectly estimated, ...

    Analysts at the Energy Department's National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) have used statistical analyses and detailed case studies to better understand why solar market policies in certain states are more successful. Their findings indicate that while no standard formula for solar implementation exists, a combination of foundational policies and localized strategies can increase solar ...

  • No show stoppers for concentrating solar power

    A recently published study confirms that solar thermal power is largely unrestricted by materials availability. There are, however, some issues that the industry needs to look into soon, like replacing silver in mirrors. In the wake of Chinese export restrictions on rare earth metals, the dependence of some renewable technologies on scarce materials has gained attention. Several players in the ...
