POZNAN, Polen, 24. April 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Wuxi Suntech Power Co., Ltd. („Suntech") gab heute bekannt, man werde seine intelligenten Solarmodule auf der Green Power 2018 in Polen vorstellen.

Green Power ist eine Fachmesse für neue Energiebranchen. Auf ihr treffen sich Vertreter aller Sektoren für erneuerbare Energien (RES), sie bietet eine hervorragende Gelegenheit, mehr über Markttrends zu erfahren und sucht nach Herausforderungen und Möglichkeiten im Bereich neuer Energien.

Die Solaredge und Maxim Smart Module, die Suntech auf der Green Power 2018 vorstellt, verwenden eine integrierte J-box. Im Vergleich mit der herkömmlichen J-box optimiert die intelligente J-box mit eingebautem IC (integriertem Schaltkreis) die Ausgangsleistung. Einen intelligenten IC kann man als Shuntimpedanz bei Abschattungsbedingungen ansehen, um den Stromverlust durch Stromungleichgewicht zu reduzieren. Eingebaute intelligente Zelloptimierungs-IC vermeiden negative Folgen aller Art von Ungleichgewicht innerhalb eines Panels, die durch Abschattung, Verschmutzung, Alterung, ungünstige Hausausrichtung usw. verursacht werden. Klassenbeste Abschattungstoleranz durch MPPT an einzelnen Zellsträngen führt zur Maximierung der Energieausbeute sowie zur Beseitigung von Hotspots und sie minimiert dadurch den Panelabbau. Unter schattigen Bedingungen können intelligente Module den Strom erhöhen und die Spannung verringern, wodurch die Gesamtleistung um 30 % steigt. 20 % engere Reihenteilung bei gleicher Energieerzeugung pro Panel kann die Leistungsabgabe effektiv erhöhen und sie ermöglicht 3 % mehr Energieabgabe pro Panel bei gleicher Reihenteilung als herkömmliche Module.

Polen ist in den letzten Jahren einer der aufstrebenden FV-Märkte in Europa. Der Anteil erneuerbarer Energien beträgt in Polen derzeit nur 10 %. Das Ziel der EU, bis 2020 über 20 % erneuerbare Energien zu verfügen, ist noch in weiter Ferne. Einerseits plant Polen, mit Unterstützung der Regierung, die installierte FV-Kapazität in den nächsten vier Jahren um das 10-fache zu erhöhen. Daher bietet der FV-Markt in Polen erheblichen Raum für Entwicklungsförderung. Auf der anderen Seite bietet Polen spezielle regierungsseitige Unterstützung im FV-Markt für den Wohnbereich an, sodass Suntech Interesse hat, größere Ressourcen in diesem Bereich in Polen einzusetzen. Wo die Sonne scheint, ist auch Suntech vor Ort. In Übereinstimmung mit unserer ursprünglichen Absicht erhellen wir das wunderbare Leben der Menschen mit grüner Energie.

SAN ANTONIO, April 24, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Driven by its commitment to the community and the environment, today CPS Energy announced the purchase of 34 XLP Plug-In Hybrid Electric Ford F-150 pickup trucks - the largest purchase of Plug-In F-150s of any utility or private company to date and the 1st in Texas to use the vehicles. The new vehicles will replace the less efficient fleet of vehicles.

The new trucks deliver significant fuel economy equivalency gains – offering more than 50% better fuel economy and a comparable reduction in emissions over similar standard vehicles -- based on manufacturer's figures that take into consideration long commutes. 

"Through our latest hybrid-electric vehicle investments, we will leverage new technology that has been economically designed to help protect our environment," said Paula Gold-Williams, CPS Energy's President & CEO.  "These cars are great enhancements to our fleet of vehicles, which are used to serve our customers, day-in and day-out."

The new plug-in hybrid electric trucks are part of CPS Energy's plan to reduce the environmental impact and are an investment that is a critical component to reduce its overall carbon footprint.

"Aside from cutting emissions, these vehicles will improve fuel economy and reduce costs – a big win for our community," said John Courage, San Antonio District 9 Councilman.  "Investing in cleaner vehicles and seeking new green technologies are critical to improving air quality in San Antonio."

The vehicles are being manufactured by Ford and are equipped with XL's plug-in hybrid technology, which allows the trucks to run on both gasoline and electric power. In addition to plug-in charging capabilities, the trucks' technology also uses regenerative braking during deceleration to charge the battery pack, and uses electric assist during acceleration to increase fuel economy.

Currently, there are more than 150 charging stations, at 30 locations around Greater San Antonio. Customers can visit the CPS Energy website for a searchable map of electric vehicle charging station locations.

"As the world's top selling pickup truck, the Ford F-150 is ideally suited to handle the wide range of jobs the CPS team tackles on a daily basis, and is a perfect vehicle to equip with XL's unique plug-in hybrid electric technology," said Greg Dugan, Ford Motor Company Government Accounts Manager.  "And because the XL plug-in hybrid electric system works seamlessly with the Ford drivetrain, it works and drives just like a factory F-150 would – but with a 50% MPG improvement and substantial reductions in CO2 emissions," added Eric Foellmer, XL's Director of Marketing.

CPS Energy strives to be environmental stewards and give customers the best energy solutions while reducing emissions.  Last week, CPS Energy was designated a 2018 Environmental Champion for the 2nd year in a row by Market Strategies International.  In addition to seeking new technologies and opportunities to reduce emissions, CPS Energy leads in solar generation, #1 in Texas and #6 in the nation, and is one of the largest wind buyers in the nation.

ALBANY, N.Y., April 24, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Community solar farms under construction in Mooers, NY will soon produce over 1000 megawatt hours of electricity each year, enough to power over 1100 homes, according to the company responsible for marketing to consumers in the North Country.

"We can give homeowners up to 100% offset on their dirty energy usage," said David Fargnoli, a spokesman for Solar Farms New York, an Albany-based company that is marketing the project.  "We like to say we're blowing the roof off solar because for the first time everybody can enjoy solar without putting panels up on their roof."  

The Mooers solar farms are being built in accordance with New York state regulations that encourage developers to build community solar projects that deliver their electricity to the local utility which then credits consumers with a portion of the solar energy produced.  

Each farm will be less than 14 acres to avoid any adverse impact on wildlife or the landscape; unlike wind farms and utility scaled solar farms elsewhere in the country.

According to the company, the community solar farms in Mooers are expected to be built this summer and will start flowing electricity to NYSEG towards the end of the year.  Because production is limited by the number of solar panels erected on the farms, membership in the Mooers project will be limited to about 1100 customers, depending on the average annual usage of the homes that enroll. 

Fargnoli explained that his company views community solar is more democratic than rooftop solar.  "Anybody can support solar energy with a community solar membership," he said, "but only homeowners with suitable rooftops can take advantage of solar panels."

According to the Solar Industry Association, community solar is now available in some fourteen states and the District of Columbia.  After getting its start in Colorado and California several years ago, New York has rapidly taken the lead in community solar development, Fargnoli said.

Customers who wish to take advantage of community solar can become members of the new community solar farms by logging into www.SolarFarmsNY.com  or calling the company's Albany office at 833 877 7652.
