The data shows a loss of almost 1 percent of efficiency per week. Like this article? Subscribe to Recharge, the Monitor's weekend digest of global energy news. Click here for a sample. Email Address So far the only remedy is hosing them down, an expensive task thats also labor- and water-intensive. The MIT and KFUPM researchers say their technology could lead to systems that make the cleaning process less expensive, automatic and water-free. The new method is especially important in Saudi Arabia, according to Numan Abu-Dheir of KFUPM and co-author of the report. In the desert environment, dust is present on a daily basis, he said. [Saudis] need a way to reduce the dust accumulation. Although the MIT-KFUPM team used a magnetic fluid to develop the new technology, their report says other forces, ranging from electric fields to differences in temperature, can be exerted to manipulate the material and keep the surfaces clear of dust and liquid.

WIRCONs deep experience in solar energy project development is based on the over 8,000 projects of WIRSOL, an established business and brand name that we took over earlier this year. Our strong commitment to solar project development in Europe will be greatly enhanced by SPIs experience and resources as a publicly-listed company with a strong, global presence in the US and Asia. We look forward to further developing this collaborative relationship in the UK and potentially beyond. Both WIRCON and SPI share common strategic, operational and financial objectives in the UK solar market, said Dietmar Hopp, a shareholder of WIRCON. This joint venture agreement will allow us together to move faster in advancing our UK project development business. Mark Hogan, President of Wirsol Energy Ltd., a subsidiary of WIRCON, added, We are excited to commence this joint effort with the strong support of SPI on the procurement and development of solar project assets in the UK. We plan to capitalize on selected opportunities with attractive return potential in the UK market, particularly given the DECCs proposal to close the RO (Renewables Obligation) scheme to new solar PV capacity above 5 MW from 1st April 2015. We will also invest in sourcing and building a substantial and sustainable pipeline looking into 2015 and beyond. About Solar Power, Inc.

Solar groups ask Scott and PSC for more time on climate rules | Tampa Bay Times

Rick Scott and the Public Service Commission to extend the public comment period on how the state will comply with the federal rules on limiting carbon pollution from power plants. The PSC announced on July 10 that the public would have until Aug. 8 to comment on the new carbon rules but limited the distribution of the notice so few were aware of it. In a letter to Scott and the panel that regulates utilities, the businesses said that is not enough time for them to make the case that the state should be allowing for more alternative energy to reach its carbon reduction goals. "As Florida businesses, it matters how the state constructs its implementation plan including what type of process the state uses to make these important decisions,'' the group wrote in a letter to Scott and the PSC on Tuesday "We want the opportunity and time necessary to fully address our concerns.'' Download Final PSC ltr Florida has until June 30, 2016, to submit to EPA for approvalits plan to implement the Clean Power Plan, the federal requirement aimed at reducing carbon pollution from power plants, which have been shown to be a contributor to climate change. In June, the Obama Administration released aplanfor theEPAto limit the carbon pollution frompowerplants. According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, 21 percent of the electricity in Florida comes from coal-fired power plants, which are responsible for some of the most concentrated carbon dioxide emissions. The EIA also found that Floridas power plants emit more pollution than those of any other U.S. state except Texas and Pennsylvania and Florida households consume 40 percent more electricity than the U.S. average and spend $1,900 more. Because renewable energy accounts for only 2.2 percent of all energy generation in the state, the solar producers believe the state has greatpotential to reduce carbon emissions and create jobs by relying more on solar energy.
