Hawaii-based Wavr LLC is developing a wave energy converter that is designed to be scaled up and integrated with other renewable energy technologies. The startup plans to sell a version integrating five 40 W solar panels at $2,300.
Subscribers in the portfolio include municipalities, healthcare, food service, and retail companies, as well as 8,000 low-to-moderate income (LMI) households.
Also on the rise: Intersolar North America takeaways. Over 25 GW of solar is actively being constructed in the U.S. And more.
Also on the rise: Catalyzing solar in the US: a manufacturer’s perspective. FranklinWH announces additional financing for its home energy storage solution. 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.
BayWa r.e. will construct the solar-plus-storage facility on the Big Island of Hawaii, which will feature tracker-based bifacial solar modules and a lithium-ion battery system.
As several states will soon require smart inverters for new distributed resources, and more are considering such a requirement, nearly all manufacturers will be delivering smart inverters that meet a new industry standard by August 2023, finds an analysis by the Interstate Renewable Energy Council.
The storage units will be spread across five projects, including the recently completed Rosamond Central solar facility in Kern County, California.
