Tag: pv panels

A photovoltaic (in short PV) module is a packaged, connected assembly of typically 6×10 solar cells. Solar Photovoltaic panels constitute the solar array of a photovoltaic system that generates and supplies solar electricity in commercial and residential applications. Each module is rated by its DC output power under standard test conditions, and typically ranges from 100 to 365 watts.

Project Profile – Microgrid Technology

Nearly 25 years ago, Caterpillar opened a proving ground about 30 miles southwest of Tucson, AZ. The facility consists of large open-air test areas, where Caterpillar conducts field trials of many of its large mining equipment before being brought to market. The proving ground site also includes workshops and an office building.

The SunShot Initiative: Making Solar Energy Affordable for All Americans

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) SunShot Initiative is a collaborative national effort launched in 2011 that aggressively drives innovation to make solar energy fully cost competitive with traditional energy sources before the end of the decade.

SunShot supports efforts by private companies, universities, nonprofit organizations, state and local governments, and

New Ways to Manage Air Flow and Cooling for Data Centers

New Ways to Manage Air Flow and Cooling for Data Centers

A quiet revolution in the past five years spurred by escalating energy costs in data centers has produced innovations going beyond energy efficiency. These include free cooling, and data center infrastructure management software, both of which have led to lower power costs. A move to cloud computing and independent data

A Secure Solution

A Secure Solution

The year of 2013 may well see a landslide of market gains for distributed energy in facility settings. Why? The reasons are numerous, and moreover, compelling. But if we were to examine just one-efficiency-the benefits would prove irresistible. But why not consider security, technology breakthroughs, price drops on generation hardware,

A Zero-Sum Game

A Zero-Sum Game

From net zero energy buildings come strategies that can help make for smaller mechanical systems in a building’s interior and help reduce energy costs overall. While a net-zero energy building may not be your goal, adopting strategies from the net zero energy template can go a long way toward energy

Built-in Efficiency

Built-in Efficiency

Building envelopes are encompassing an increasing use of renewables as interdisciplinary cooperation between architects and engineers, and an emerging preference for outcome-based designs is ramping up. Addressing renewables and Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification, Joe Murray, a principle design architect with IDC Architects, a wholly owned subsidiary
