Passage of the act sets US solar industry on a new trajectory—increases Made in the USA manufacturing, boosts solar and battery recycling, incentives electric vehicles, and more
Including real-time pricing of retail electricity in the design of a high-renewables system would “markedly” lower the system’s cost, researchers found, in an analysis for the island of Oahu, Hawaii. For continent-scale systems as well, they said the resulting demand-side flexibility is likely substantial.
New research from Stanford University researcher Mark Jacobson outlines how 145 countries could meet 100% of their business-as-usual energy needs with wind, water, solar and energy storage.
According to Tom Hunt, CEO of Pivot Energy, renewable energy capacity at the distribution level can meet needs without the long lead time required for larger, utility-scale resources, and he shows us how to solve major system barriers to expanding renewable energy on the grid.
Also on the rise: Do we have enough engineers to conduct interconnection studies? Green car dealership goes green. And more.
As two regional grid operators have flagged a shortage of qualified engineers to conduct interconnection studies, pv magazine usa spoke with Kalyan Chilukuri, a vice president with Electric Power Engineers, about industry staffing challenges and measures that might help.
The Demonstration Program intends to fund up to 10 projects that show how large-scale solar, wind, and energy storage can support the power grid by automatically adjusting to changing demand and disruptions.
State-level policy has fueled the growth, and pending legislation for community solar programs in five states could add another 1.2 GW, according to Wood Mackenzie
The good news is that we know what to do. Interconnection has been studied extensively by numerous industry groups and research organizations, which have arrived at some essential guiding principles for reform.
