A more dynamic approach to grid modernization.
Duke Energy Renewables began construction on a 5-MW utility-scale solar power project in Beaufort County, N.C., adjacent to its 12.5-MW Washington White Post facility. As in the initial project, the solar energy generated from the Washington White Post II site will be sold through a 15-year agreement to North Carolina Eastern Municipal Power Agency (NCEMPA). Duke Energy Renewables has contracted with SunEnergy1 to build the 27,450-panel photovoltaic project. It should be complete by the end of 2013.
First Solar and BELECTRIC Holding, GmbH launched a joint venture (JV) that will realize solar energy projects on three continents. The JV - PV Projects GmbH & Co.
Today’s talent deficiency is tomorrow’s imperative.

Building blocks of the self-healing grid are taking shape. End-to-end integration will enable the grid to achieve 21st-century resilience.
Concerned stakeholders seek an equitable cost-benefit ratio for all ratepayers.
NRG Energy, through its wholly owned subsidiary NRG Solar, announced that two of the solar photovoltaic (PV) facilities the company acquired from Recurrent Energy earlier this year have reached commercial operation.
Delivering value in a zero-growth market.
Disruptive technologies and resource shifts are changing the utility business model. Market factors are driving companies toward four possible paths.
IKEA officially plugged-in its solar energy system installed, developed and designed by REC Solar, at its store in Stoughton, Massachusetts. The 118,000-square-foot photovoltaic (PV) array consists of a 590.8-kW (DC) system, built with 4,220 laminated panels. IKEA owns and operates each of its solar PV energy systems atop its buildings – as opposed to a solar lease or PPA – and globally has allocated $1.8 billion to invest in renewable energy through 2015.
What every real property owner should know.
Financing has been scarce for distributed generation. But as opportunities expand, commercial frameworks are solidifying. Power purchase agreements are paving the way to a bright future for DG.
