Sol Systems will install and operate the solar array at no expense to the New York-based water agency in return for all energy credits generated at a fixed price per kilowatt-hour over 25 years.
The Southern Alliance for Clean Energy identified two pathways that the Southeast’s big utilities could follow to achieve 100% renewable generation against the backdrop of a possible federal mandate.
Also on the rise: Black & Veatch unit sets financing for 137 MW Texas project, Rockefeller Foundation partners to fund distributed renewable projects in Africa, and DroneBase closes a funding round as it expands its solar presence.
Also on the rise: Stem and CleanCapital extend their business ties and eye C&I energy storage, Heliogen raises $108 million from industrial heavyweights for its CSP refinery, and Ameresco will deploy a solar array at Cannon AFB.
Also on the rise: AES floats a utility-scale solar project in New York, Greenbacker adds to its solar portfolio, Sunnova prices its latest securitization, and China will end its solar subsidies.
The company’s silicon-oxide anode material can increase battery capacity in the 18650 form factor by an initial 12% at a potentially commercially competitive price.
The annual publication from PV Evolution Labs shares results from solar panel stress tests focused on specified and verified bills of materials.
Also on the rise: Stem provides smart energy storage services to a Bay State project, solar leads in global power generation investment, and Agilitas Energy expands its storage footprint.
The 1.8 million-square-foot facility is projected to create 500 jobs and produce an enhanced thin film PV module for the utility-scale solar market in the U.S.
Job moves in solar, storage, cleantech, utilities, and energy transition finance.
Renewable project finance has to become more dynamic and greater risks will have to be taken in order to meet clean economy mandates, a panel of experts said during an ACORE event.
The funds support DOE national lab efforts and create partnerships in batteries, electric vehicles, connected vehicles, and will span five years.
A Q1 market report said the biggest impact has been on utility-scale projects, with some developers trying to rework PPAs. It warned that “compounding cost increases across all materials are just beginning to affect installers.”
CI will continue continue KDC Solar’s operations, with the specific focus of providing clean energy solutions for companies and institutions with electric loads greater than 2 MW.
The utility industry is unprepared for the clean energy and technology future that it will soon be facing. EY has surveyed 159 power and utilities executives to identify and tackle what they see as their biggest challenges.
The project offers a design and validation framework for renewable energy-based microgrid configurations that deliver electric vehicle fast charging, energy security, and value-added grid services.
Solar projects that support native grasses can sequester more carbon than cropland alone. And about all that corn for ethanol.
Also on the rise: NB Power adds more solar in the Canadian Maritimes, Leyline Renewable finances solar in Washington, D.C., big cuts reported in CO2 emissions from power production, and Schlumberger and Panasonic partner on a novel lithium extraction process.
The two companies will work together to deliver a safe, sustainable, and cost-effective lithium-ion battery recycling solution for end-of-life energy storage systems.
