Hello wonderful people and welcome to a super-rare Friday edition of the pvMB. Today we’ll be checking out Ben & Jerry’s and Sierra Club’s renewable energy partnership, Virginia’s first EVgo station, CleanSpark’s feasibility study of off-grid power solution for cannabis growers and more!
NREL has made its capacity planning model freely available for anyone to use. The model can optimize the amounts of solar, wind and storage to be added to the U.S. electric grid. Documentation is included, but a powerful computer and additional software are required.
Nineteen thousand people walked the floor at the United States’ largest *energy conference* – not just solar power conference – and it is a bit sad to end, but the education, handshakes, and hardware were great.
The California city’s municipal utility has approved an expansion of the largest feed-in tariff in the nation by 300 MW, with 50 MW to come online next year.
Hello once again friends and welcome to the pvMB. Today we’ll be looking at Amp reaching a GWh in in large-scale solar+storage projects, SmartFlower debuting SmartFlower +, ABB debuting the Universal 10/4 Residential Storage System and more!
The International Renewable Energy Association says the integration of hydrogen into the energy transition will not happen overnight and electrolysis costs will not be halved until the 2040s. But that hydrogen and related products could revolutionize the world energy landscape is not in doubt.
pv magazine USA is at Solar Power International in Salt Lake City, Utah this week and showing off some hardware from the floor. And most impressive is that innovation is still happening in solar modules, but also in many other complementary technologies.
LBNL’s annual Tracking the Sun report, comparing 2017 to 2018, saw module efficiency rise almost 10%, system prices decrease 5-7%, median system size increases, and significant variability in all of those data points across the 1.6 million systems surveyed.
