    1. Opinion: Solar Thermal in Deserts Consumes Too Much Water (vs PV)

      Opinion: Solar Thermal in Deserts Consumes Too Much Water (vs PV)
      Concentrating solar thermal power has promised big additions to renewable energy production with the additional benefit of energy storage. But with significant water consumption in desert locations, is the energy storage benefit of concentrating solar enough to compete with the dramatically falling cost of solar PV?

      Schneider Electric Launches Microgrid at DoE's Solar Decathlon

      Schneider Electric announced the launch of a fully-functioning micro-grid solution within the solar village at the U.S. Department of Energy's 2011 Solar Decathlon, a challenge to 19 international collegiate teams to design, build and operate solar-powered houses that are cost-effective, energy-efficient and attractive. The micro-grid, which connects solar homes to the Washington, D.C.-area utility, Pepco, allows the village to feed excess solar energy back into the regional electric grid

      PNM 1st to fully integrate solar storage with grid

      A small solar plant and its experimental battery storage system went live in Albuquerque on Monday in what Public Service Company of New Mexico said was the first solar storage installation in the country to be fully integrated with a utility's power grid. The storage system consists of 1,280 advanced lead acid batteries housed inside eight climate-controlled containers. It can store about 250 kilowatts, or half of the 500 kilowatts of power generated by an adjacent 2,158-panel solar array constructed as part of the project.

      GE doubles MPX's solar output and enters Brazilian market

      GE and MPX, a division of EBX Group announced an agreement that will double the output of MPX's first solar power plant in Brazil. MPX’s Taua plant in Fortaleza, Ceara state, converts sunlight into 1MW by means of 4680 solar panels. A connection about 360km from the facility links the output to the national electrical grid through a local substation.

    8. Copper Crossing Solar Ranch goes online

      Copper Crossing Solar Ranch goes online
      Nearly a year after the Iberdrola Renewables announced their plans to build a photovoltaic solar power plant on 144 acres of former private agricultural land in San Tan Valley, the Copper Crossing solar power plant has gone online. Copper is now producing 20MW of solar energy, approximately 54 million kilowatt-hours annually, enough to power approximately 3,700 Salt River Project customers’ homes. SRP has designated most of the energy from this facility for schools, school districts and/or industrial customers. Approximately 10 percent is reserved for residential customers.

    9. DoE Awards $90M for 30MW Concentrating Solar Photovoltaic Plant

      DoE Awards $90M for 30MW Concentrating Solar Photovoltaic Plant
      The U.S. Department of Energy awarded the financial incentive to Goldman Sach's Cogentrix from a program designed to support the use of innovative technologies. The 30-megawatt already under construction will use high-concentration photovoltaic solar cells … It is expected to cost between $140M and $150M, and will be online by April 1 [2012?].

    10. CA Commission Could Pre-empt County/City Authority of PV Projects

      CA Commission Could Pre-empt County/City Authority of PV Projects
      Although the Solar Trust case only deals with one project, it could lead to more requests from developers to have the commission oversee PV power plants. That could, in effect, strip counties and cities of the ability to have the final say on PV power projects (if a project is on federal land, then the federal government is in charge).

    11. Japan's Largest Solar Plant Regrets Small Storage

      Japan's Largest Solar Plant Regrets Small Storage
      At the nation's largest photovoltaic power plant in Sakai, Kansai Electric Power introduced an energy storage facility accommodating 48 nickel hydride batteries near KEPCO's substation … At Sakai, up to 10,000 kilowatts of electricity is generated during the current trial run ahead of the full operation starting in October. On cloudy and rainy days, however, the output drops to around 5,000 kilowatts and 2,000 kilowatts, respectively. To make up for the gap and achieve stable supply, KEPCO plans to release electricity accumulated in the energy storage facility on sunny days. Since the utility did not adopt highly-efficient lithium-ion batteries at the energy storage facility for financial reasons, there is a limit to the amount of electricity it can cover on bad weather days. Despite being the nation's largest photovoltaic power plant, its output is roughly one-hundredth of that of a nuclear reactor.
