Solar PV Balance-of-System Costs to Surpass Modules by 2012, According to GTM Research. Read the full press release here.
As solar PV module prices continue to decline globally, balance-of-system (BOS) components will assume a majority share of a PV project’s total cost per watt within the next year, according to GTM Research. In 2010, BOS costs accounted for approximately 44.8% (US$1.43 per watt) of a typical, utility-scale crystalline silicon (c-Si) project, with that percentage forecasted to increase to 50.6% in 2012. This economic shift is driving industry attention beyond the module toward achieving economic gains for key BOS components and services, including mounting structures, foundations, labor, civil works, cables, engineering and combiner boxes. “Mounting structures are an access point for both BOS cost reductions and business opportunity” Ashrae_fr_tsd_ch5. Stark tillväxt för solenergin. Solfångare på Resecentrum i Härnösand. Sex solfångare installeras Taket som ska skydda resenärerna på nya resecentrum i Härnösand från väder och vind får nu ytterligare en funktion.
Sex solfångare ska installeras för att producera el och värme. Anläggningen är kopplad till fjärrvärmen och överskottsvärme matas ut till hushållen i Härnösand. Elektriciteten som produceras driver belysning och fläktar i byggnaden. – Vi har varit involverade från start i nya resecentrum, och det är glädjande att entreprenören NVS nu valt sex stycken av våra solfångare för bygget, säger Johan Sandberg, vd för Absolicon Solar. Nya resecentrum skall stå klar under våren 2013 och solfångarna på taken ska följa solen under dagen för att generera maximalt med energi.

The first community investment platform that makes it possible for people to earn a cash return by investing in Renewable Energy Projects in the UK. Become A Renewable Energy Magnate, With The Cash In Your Wallet.
It can be hard to truly connect with the renewable energy revolution.
Just buying wind power from your local utility is very far removed from, say, having your own solar panels, and not very many people are doing solar installations yet. But what if you could own a part of a solar power plant, at prices that almost anyone could afford? Abundance Generation, a UK company, has turned to crowd funding to finance major renewable generation projects. "We wanted to create productive, tangible and long-term investment opportunities that are open to everyone," says the company on its website. "Renewable energy is a great place to begin the process of returning control to people over where their money goes and how it is invested.
" Once a project is up and running selling electricity, in part thanks to your money (as little as five British pounds), investors will receive cash payments based on the value of the energy sold by the project. Extraordinary popular solution: funding from crowds? Executive Summary “Crowdfunding” allows early-stage companies, projects, and artistic ventures in the US to attract financing from the masses over the Internet and provides developing world microfinance initiatives a new avenue to secure capital.
To date, crowdfunding has provided more than $500m for enterprises or ideas normally unable to raise money even from venture investors by aggregating funds from thousands of motivated and unaccredited individual investors. With the recent passage in the US of the JOBS Act, this novel method of financing stands to grow rapidly. Given the often small, distributed nature of clean energy development, a small, distributed financing model holds real potential though there are potential pitfalls as well.

Renewable Energy - Optimal sizing of a grid-connected PV system for various PV module technologies and inclinations, inverter efficiency characteristics and locations. Abstract An optimal sizing methodology based on an energy approach is described and applied to grid-connected photovoltaic systems taking into account the photovoltaic module technology and inclination, the inverter type and the location.
A model describing the efficiency for m-Si, p-Si, a-Si and CIS is used. The method has been applied on various meteorological stations in Bulgaria and Corsica (France). The main parameter affecting the sizing is the inverter efficiency curve. The influence of the PV module technology seems less important except for amorphous photovoltaic modules for which special remarks have been made. KOLLA MALLEN som finns på Eriks mail från Thomas J.
