  2. SolarReserve to Build 150-MW Solar Thermal Plant in South Australia

    A 150MW solar thermal power plant will be built in South Australia by global company SolarReserve. The Aurora Solar Energy Project located in Port Augusta, about 300km north of the South Australian capital Adelaide, will incorporate eight hours of storage or 1,100 MWh, allowing it to operate like a conventional coal or gas power station.

  3. NorthVolt Starts Biggest Fundraising for $4 Billion Battery Plan

  4. London Solar Auctions Aim to Make City Greenest on Earth

    London Mayor Sadiq Khan said he wanted to try city-wide auctions as part of an environment strategy proposed to more than double the capital’s solar energy generation capacity by 2030.

  5. First Solar to Profit If Trump Slaps Tariffs on Panel Imports

    First Solar Inc. is standing on the sidelines of a trade dispute that could give its products a significant leg up.

    The U.S. International Trade Commission held a hearing on Tuesday regarding the request by Suniva for the U.S. to impose tariffs on imported solar panels. The petition alleges China, which accounts for more than 80 percent of global solar panel production, gives manufacturers unfair government support.  

    The commission is expected to make a decision next month, and a finding of harm could lead President Trump to impose duties as early as November.

     

  6. Parked Electric Cars Earn $1,530 From Europe's Power Grids

    Electric car owners are earning as much as $1,530 a year just by parking their vehicle and feeding excess power back into the grid. Trials in Denmark carried out by Nissan Motor Co. and Italy’s biggest utility Enel SpA showed how batteries inside electric cars could help balance supply and demand at times and provide a new revenue stream for those who own the vehicles.

  7. Tech Guru Bill Joy Unveils a Battery to Challenge Lithium-Ion

  8. Do You have a Favorite Insurance? For Pharma, it May be Microgrids

    A large pharma company recently came to me to discuss energy supply and its need for guaranteed electricity.  The company had to take out expensive insurance to cover a power failure event that could interrupt their production line. Why is this a big deal? We’ve all lost refrigeration for a few hours.

    After talking with the company, it became clear that a power loss lasting only 1 minute can result in a major economic hit because much of the pharmaceuticals are made in large batches to amortize the costs, and increase production.  With a power loss, it’s not just a temporary interruption, it’s a lost batch.  And the market value of a lost batch can easily reach millions of dollars.
