HydroInfra Technologies creates Hydro Nano Gas that Makes any fossil fuel climate neutral.

HydroInfra Technologies creates Hydro Nano Gas that Makes any fossil fuel climate neutral.

 

Hello

 

You may already be aware of Hydro Nano Gas (HNG) technology and what it can do to eliminate air pollution from power plants, shipping and other industries.

 

Did you know that HNG is also being used to clean up the seas.

 

Your readers need to know about this and the joint venture projects HIT is creating around the world with industry and governments.

 

Please see the latest project news on the HIT web site for more info.

New Polymer Protects Photovoltaic ‘Artificial Leaves’ From Corrosion

One way to solve the solar energy storage problem is to is to use the electricity generated by solar cells to split water by means of electrolysis to get hydrogen that can easily be stored. Scientists at the HZB Institute for Solar Fuels have modified so-called superstrate solar cells with their highly efficient architecture in order to obtain hydrogen from water with the help of suitable catalysts. Such solar cell works something like an “artificial leaf.” The problem is, photovoltaic cell rapidly corrodes when placed in the aqueous electrolyte solution.

T*SOL Pro 5.5: Now with a revised and expanded economic calculation …

The software T*SOL Pro – for the simulation and optimization of solar thermal systems is now available in version 5.5. Thanks to the integrated imaging program, Photo Plan, collectors can be simulated on a customer’s roof in their real dimensions and represented photo-realistically. One of the new features is an expanded economic efficiency forecast which includes a yield calculator. Annual savings and payments can now be balanced in a table and presented in a graph. In addition, the project report now displays solar proportions separately according to the share of warm water and heat. Besides the calculation of the net present value, payback period, and the cost of solar energy you also will find a calculation of the modified internal rate of return (MIRR) and the profit taking into account the reinvestment assumption.

Solar Photovoltaic (PV) Capacity Quickly Expands When States Provide the …

The American solar photovoltaic (PV) industry has grown tremendously in recent years. In 2012, more than 3,300 MW of solar power were installed throughout the United States, with a record 1,300 MW installed in the last three months of the year alone.2 Falling costs for hardware and installation have accelerated this trend, but it has mainly been driven by public policies that generously reward those who install solar systems. The importance of these policies has been illustrated by adoption in states that have shown the most rapid PV growth. Interstingly, the growth has not been limited to sun drenched southern and western states with their vast treeless plains. Indeed, there has been significant growth in states further north that are known to be often cool and cloudy, and where land for solar development is often in short supply.

Hawaii solar contractors plan for the future by diversifying

The future of Hawaii’s solar photovoltaic industry looks bright, according to many in the industry. But there are some that say one of the state’s fastest growing industries may be crippled without tax credits. And that’s why some Hawaii PV contractors are looking to the future to get ahead in the game.

“We want to become an energy provider,” Island Pacific Energy President Joe Saturnia recently told PBN, referencing the possibility that his Honolulu-based firm also may get into other types of renewable power.
He says that they’ll need to actively develop their list of products and services, including wind, wave, ocean thermal energy conversion or efficiency areas.
Saturnia also feels that in the future, grid stability will also become a bigger issue as more and more systems come online.

Residents Moving into Fully Photovoltaic Apartments in San Diego – Multi

The first of four buildings in the 114-unit Solterra EcoLuxury Apartments has been completed, and residents are starting to move in. The first building of the fully photovoltaic property in the San Diego neighborhood of Scripps Ranch is now 80 percent leased, according to developer H.G. Fenton.

Fully photovoltaic in the context of this property means that all of the electricity residents need for daily living is generated by the sun, explains the developer. Residents will also be able to control their air conditioning and heat from anywhere via smart devices—the first apartment property in the country to have that feature, according to utility San Diego Gas Electric—and have access to electric vehicle charging stations in the property’s garage.

In fact, Solterra surpasses California’s 2013 building energy efficiency standards (Title 24) by 19 percent, says H.G. Fenton executive vice president Carroll Whaler. Common areas are also fully solar-powered and use drought-tolerant landscaping and drip-water irrigation. Energy-saving features in individual units include GE Energy Star Stainless Steel Appliances and GE Energy Efficient front-loading washers and dryers.

Japanese PV shipments increase 62% year-over-year as imports boom

Japanese demand for solar photovoltaic (PV) modules reached 1.73 GW between January 1st and March 31st, 2013, 800 MW of which was met with imports, according to data from the Japanese Photovoltaic Energy Association (JPEA).

This brings the nation to a total of 3.81 GW of demand during its fiscal year 2012, which ended on March 31st. This includes 2.37 GW of domestic module shipments and 1.44 GW of imports.

EC imposes preliminary anti-dumping duties on Chinese silicon wafers, solar PV …

On June 4th, 2013 the European Commission issued a ruling imposing provisional anti-dumping duties on imports of silicon wafers and solar photovoltaic (PV) cells and modules from China, following a nine-month investigation.

These punitive tariffs will begin on June 6th, 2013 at 11.8%, and then will increase to an average of 47.6% on August 6th, 2013. Duties will range from 37.2% to 67.9%, and the EC notes that those Chinese companies which have cooperated will face lower tariffs.

Solar Photovoltaic Demand in the US to Grow by 20% in 2013 to 4.3 Gigawatts …

Demand in Q2’13 is forecast to reach 1 GW, with over 70% coming from California, Arizona, New Jersey, and North Carolina. Residential and small commercial rooftop PV installations will account for 18% of this demand, with another 14% from large commercial rooftops. The utility-dominated ground-mount segment will account for the remaining 68% of new PV demand this quarter.

Large utility-based solar PV projects in Arizona, California, New Mexico, and Texas will drive US demand above 2.5 GW during the second half of 2013. Strong year-end contributions will also come from Hawaii, Massachusetts, Nevada, New York, North Carolina, and Ohio. PV demand from the US is forecast to exceed 5 GW in 2014, representing a 70% compound annual growth rate since 2009.
