Trending on social media

As we reported on Facebook, the port of Los Angeles, America's largest, is installing a $26.6 million ‪solar microgrid to eliminate emissions from port operations. The project is expected to be completed before the end of the year...On Twitter, two interesting topics received most attention in recent weeks. First, support from an “unlikely” source: “Miners more positive about solar & wind as renewables are main driver for copper,” read a tweet from @THEnergyNet about this newsworthy subject. HOMER followers also liked and re-tweeted a @mashable story we shared about India’s biggest rooftop power plant ...On LinkedIn, industry leaders read about PA utility PECO Energy, which has proposed a pair of integrated microgrids to boost reliability in a high-density area.

Renewables Create Jobs, Save Lives

Two recent reports from IRENA (International Renewable Energy Agency) determine that doubling the share of renewables in the global energy mix by 2030 may reduce human and environmental health impacts of pollution, climate change by more than $4.2 trillion per year, 15x the associated cost.

RISØ: Danvest System Delivers Power Quality 

Danish national research institute RISØ released a report on power quality in diesel-wind microgrid-based hybrid systems. The institute tested voltage and frequency fluctuations during continuous operation as well as during transitions between different states of operation. The report concludes that frequency and voltage vary very little, both in continuous operation and during transients and shifts between operation modes. READ MORE...

Microgrid ABCs – Sustainable Rural Electrification Deployment Model

Microgrids are gaining momentum as a rural electrification solution in many emerging markets. Microgrids based on renewable generation can replace costly diesel and take advantage of abundant local renewable energy resources as well as avoiding the inefficient process of installing centralized grid networks. Addressing this financial issue is an emerging model for rural microgrid installation. READ MORE...
