Hanwha Q CELLS has delivered 396 solar PV modules for the project.

Italian car dealer cuts energy bills through PV plant with Q CELLS modules

2014-08-28

The Italian car dealer Autostar Spa (Pordenone) will bank on self-consumption of solar electricity. A 100 kw solar photovoltaic (PV) system on approximately 700 square meters of the company building's roof has been connected to the grid in August 2014. This PV array will supply Autostar Spa with solar power and thus reduce the factory's operating costs. Hanwha Q CELLS (Thalheim, Gernmany) has delivered 396 Q.PRO-G3 solar PV modules of the 250 Watt power class. Read more...

Minnesota Power already installed solar panels on the roof of St. Louis County’s Government Services Center

Minnesota Power joins forces with military to build 10MW solar PV project at Camp Ripley

2014-08-28

Utility Minnesota Power and the Minnesota National Guard will join forces to build a major solar photovoltaic (PV) project at Camp Ripley, the largest military base in the state. Duluth-based Minnesota Power, a division of ALLETE and the Minnesota National Guard on August 27th, 2014 signed a memorandum of understanding outlining plans to build a 10-megawatt utility-scale solar PV array at the central Minnesota camp. The project will be the largest solar power installation on military property in the state. Read more...

If the grid fails, the storage system provides uninterrupted power for the user from the solar modules and/or batteries

Belgium pilot project combines solar PV modules with battery storage

2014-08-28

Mid-August 2014 the “School of the Future” (Izegem, Flanders, Belgium) has put into service a new solar photovoltaic (PV) installation combined with a battery storage system. It is a pilot project, the first time that such an installation is placed in the Benelux, Cleantec Trade BVBA (Kortrijk, Flanders) reports. The ‘School of the Future' is a building in Izegem where schools, architects and engineers can find inspiration on modern school-building and can discover the latest techniques. For the project, the 'School of the Future' teamed up with Cleantec Trade, which distributes solar PV panels and storage systems. Read more...

The IEA report expects strong solar PV growth in emerging markets and some OECD areas, however policy debates over distributed PV may be a source of forecast uncertainty

International Energy Agency report: Policy uncertainty threatens to slow renewable energy momentum; Global solar PV capacity could top 500 GW in 2020

2014-08-28

The expansion of renewable energy will slow over the next five years unless policy uncertainty is diminished, the International Energy Agency (IEA) announced on August 28th, 2014 in its third annual “Medium-Term Renewable Energy Market Report”. According to the report, power generation from renewable sources such as wind, solar and hydro grew strongly in 2013, reaching almost 22% of global generation, and was on par with electricity from gas, whose generation remained relatively stable.

U.S. solar-generated electricity more than doubled in the first six month of 2014

U.S. electrical generation from renewables hits 14.3% as solar generation more than doubles

2014-08-28

According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA)'s latest "Electric Power Monthly" report, with data for the first six months of 2014, renewable energy sources (i.e., biomass, geothermal, hydropower, solar, wind) provided 14.3% of net U.S. electrical generation, the SUN DAY Campaign announced. Conventional hydropower accounted for 7.0% while non-hydro renewables provided an even larger share - 7.3%. Wind power alone increased by 9.0% compared to last year and accounted for 5.0% of the nation's electrical generation during the first six months of 2014, while solar-generated electricity more than doubled (growing by 115.7%).

The monocrystalline silicon solar cells made by Crystal Solar are much closer to true squares than most other silicon solar cells. The shape is one of the reasons the wafers can be stacked vertically during the gas-deposition process- and one of the reasons that the cells can be produced at about 100 times the typical rate

PV R&D: Crystal Solar and NREL team up to cut silicon solar cell costs

2014-08-28

A faster, cheaper way to manufacture silicon solar cells, partially funded by the U.S. Energy Department and fine-tuned at its National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), has won a coveted R&D 100 award as one of the top technology innovations of 2013. Crystal Solar's approach to growing high-quality, high-efficiency silicon solar photovoltaic (PV) wafers at 100 times the usual throughput and half the cost could be a game-changer, creating American jobs and stemming the flow of solar cell manufacturing overseas, says T.S. Ravi, chief executive officer of the Santa Clara, California-based company. Read more...
