TUCKER, Ga., June 20, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Green Power EMC, the renewable energy supplier for 38 Georgia Electric Membership Corporations (EMCs), and Silicon Ranch, one of the nation's largest independent solar power producers, today announced a landmark agreement to bring an additional 200 megawatts (MWAC) of solar energy online by the year 2020. The total capacity will be distributed across four locations in southern Georgia and will provide enough low-cost, renewable power to help serve more than 35,000 EMC households annually.

The four solar projects will be developed, funded, and built by Silicon Ranch, which will also own, operate, and maintain the arrays throughout the lifecycle of each facility. Green Power EMC will purchase all the energy and environmental attributes generated by the facilities on behalf of its member EMCs.

The 200MWAC portfolio expands the strategic partnership between Green Power EMC and Silicon Ranch. The pair commissioned a 20MWAC solar plant in Jeff Davis County, Ga. near Hazlehurst in 2015 and recently dedicated a 52MWAC plant, also near Hazlehurst. According to Green Power EMC President Jeff Pratt, more than 30 EMCs share in the output generated by the two facilities. Pratt says the additional capacity will further enable the EMCs to supply low-cost solar energy to a growing number of the 4.1 million Georgia residents they serve.

"The Georgia EMCs deserve enormous credit for their vision to provide competitively-priced, renewable power to their members," said Pratt. "Continued improvements in solar cost and technology will help our EMCs meet their members' interest in solar energy and maintain competitive energy costs.  We are proud to partner again with Silicon Ranch to provide solar energy to them at such an affordable cost."

Silicon Ranch President and CEO Matt Kisber said, "Green Power EMC has developed a procurement strategy that allows its member co-ops to capture tremendous value. By banding together, they are able to leverage economies of scale, resulting in an extremely low cost of energy for their members. Green Power EMC and its member co-ops have established the model that has made Georgia the fastest-growing solar state in America, and it's a model that other states will no doubt follow in the years to come."  

"This 200MW solar project in South Georgia is good news for Georgia's energy sector," said Senate Regulated Industries Chairman Rick Jeffares (R, McDonough). "The EMCs are showing their commitment to a balanced portfolio including renewable sources, and Georgia also welcomes the jobs and investment created by the Silicon Ranch Corp. to build and install these high tech solar panels."

Georgia House Energy Committee Chairman Don Parsons (R, Marietta) said that the agreement announced today is a testament to Georgia's innovative and collaborative business environment. "Our electric cooperatives understand the importance of offering Georgians choices for their source of power. I applaud the way they have collaborated to harness Georgia's natural resources to fuel our growth as a state."

Established by Georgia's EMCs in 2001, Green Power EMC was the first green energy provider in the state. Working with and on behalf of its member cooperatives, Green Power EMC has already placed the Georgia EMCs first in the nation among co-ops for installed capacity, a position dramatically enhanced by the additional portfolio with Silicon Ranch. In recognition of its comprehensive solar strategy, Green Power EMC was named the 2016 Electric Cooperative Utility of the Year by the Smart Electric Power Alliance (SEPA) during a ceremony at the Solar Power International conference in Las Vegas last September.

LONDON, June 19, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Asia Pacific Offshore Wind Energy Market: Overview

Wind power generation is the extraction of kinetic energy from the wind and its conversion into any useful type of energy such as thermal, mechanical, or electric energy. This can be achieved through the use of: wind turbines to generate electricity, windmills for mechanical power, wind pumps for water-pumping or drainage, and sails to propel ships. Energy in the wind turns three, propeller-like blades around a rotor. The rotor is connected to the main shaft, which spins the generator to produce electricity. Large number of offshore wind energy projects are under planning and construction phase due to the fact that offshore wind farm installations has high advantages as compared to onshore wind farm installations. High land surface requirement, high noise generation, high cost incurred in project set up and the entire value chain (including turbine and its accessories cost, cabling cost, installation costs and others) of wind energy generation from assets based on land have led to shift of focus from onshore to offshore. Advantages of offshore wind energy installations includes overall reduction in project capital expenditure, unobstructed primary fuel required for energy generation from the offshore wind turbines, which is wind.

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., June 19, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- NanoFlex Power Corporation ("NanoFlex") (OTCQB: OPVS), a developer of advanced photovoltaic technologies, today announced that it is part of a consortium that was awarded a $6.5 million contract from the Army Research Laboratory's Army Research Office to develop high power, flexible, and lightweight solar modules for portable power applications with more than double the power of current flexible solar modules within the same footprint at a competitive procurement cost on a dollars per Watt basis. The consortium consists of NanoFlex, SolAero Technologies ("SolAero"), a leading manufacturer of high efficiency solar cells, the University of Michigan ("UM"), and the University of Wisconsin ("UW").  

As part of the program, NanoFlex and SolAero will collaborate to incorporate the patented non-destructive epitaxial lift off ("ND-ELO") process and related technologies into SolAero's fabrication process to reduce the production cost of ultra-high efficiency compound semiconductor solar cells. Invented by UM and exclusively licensed by NanoFlex, ND-ELO technology has the potential to substantially reduce production costs by enabling reuse of the expensive wafer substrate. NanoFlex will then design and integrate these ultra-high efficiency solar cells into high power, flexible, and lightweight solar module prototypes for portable Soldier power applications.  Finally, UM and UW will evaluate new compound semiconductor growth processes to enable further cost reduction. 

This program addresses a critical need within the Army, with Soldiers facing a widening energy gap as they are equipped with increased electronic equipment. Currently small units lack the ability to harvest sufficient power while conducting extended operations. These high power, flexible, and lightweight solar modules can be used by Soldiers to recharge batteries and power other electronic equipment, providing the ability to operate independently at a sustained operational tempo for increased periods, over greater distances.  The thin and flexible design can be folded into a compact, lightweight package Soldiers can stow and carry into the field and interoperate with the Army's Squad Power Manager ("SPM") and Universal Battery Charger ("UBC") systems. 

"Until now, high performance compound semiconductor solar cells have not been available to the Army at reasonable prices. This program will enable the development and use of TRL-7 flexible solar module prototypes with more than twice current power performance at a competitive price to the Army.  This technology can provide an immediate and direct benefit to the warfighter, reducing physical burden, reducing forward logistics, and extending mission duration," said Dean Ledger, Chief Executive Officer of NanoFlex.  "We are also excited for the sizeable non-military applications for these products for use by non-government organizations for emergency preparedness and response and outdoor enthusiasts for recreational activities."

The four-year contract was awarded by the U.S. Army Research, Development, and Engineering Command ("RDECOM"), Army Research Laboratory's Army Research Office to SolAero, with NanoFlex, UM, and UW participating as subcontractors.  The project is under the U.S. Army Manufacturing Technology ("ManTech") Program, which supports transition of manufacturing technologies and affordable technical capabilities to address the highest priority needs of the Warfighter through demonstration of effective, efficient and adaptable processes.  The Army's transition sponsor for this effort is Program Executive Office ("PEO") Soldier, Project Manager Soldier Warrior ("PM SWAR").  PM SWAR is responsible for the acquisition of integrated Soldier systems designed to increase Soldier's situational awareness and combat effectiveness, decrease combat load, and improve mission flexibility.

DENVER--(BUSINESS WIRE)--A Panasonic-led solar-plus-storage microgrid at Peña Station NEXT (Peña), a 382-acre smart city development in Denver, has been named an Energy Storage North America (ESNA) 2017 Innovation Awards finalist. This industry accolade follows on the heels of the microgrid earning an Environmental Leader 2017 Top Project of the Year award earlier this month. Project partners include Panasonic Enterprise Solutions Company, Xcel Energy, Denver International Airport, LC Fulenwider, Inc., and Younicos. Partners share microgrid assets and benefits in a multi-stakeholder “portfolio” model that helps the utility modernize and manage its electricity grid with innovative technologies, aids grid integration of solar PV, strengthens resilience (including through backup power) for customers and critical loads, and supports the sustainability goals of diverse organizations.

ESNA, the largest industry event for policy, technology, and market leaders in the energy storage industry, organizes the annual Innovation Awards to recognize projects that are helping to transform the energy storage ecosystem by enabling the transition to a clean, affordable, resilient, and reliable power grid and opening new markets for energy storage. Finalists were selected based on projects’ impact on this ecosystem, including services supplied to customers and the grid and unique technology applications. Eight finalists in two categories—Centralized Storage (utility-scale) and Distributed Storage (commercial, industrial or residential)—are competing through July 7 to win the award for their category. Winners will be determined solely through public voting and announced at the upcoming ESNA Conference and Expo, held August 8–10 in San Diego.

“Recognition from ESNA’s prestigious Innovation Awards validates our approach to unlocking the potential of energy storage solutions and renewably powered microgrids,” said George Karayannis, VP of CityNOW, Panasonic’s North American smart city initiative that is a driving force for a comprehensive suite of smart and sustainable solutions deployed at transit-oriented development Peña Station NEXT. “What makes this project so unique is how we’re leveraging multiple value streams and sharing assets in a multi-stakeholder public-private partnership model that brings together utilities, cities, technology companies, and other partners.”

Where many microgrids are utilized by a single entity (e.g., military, corporate, or college campuses), the portfolio microgrid at Peña includes a set of assets that are shared between stakeholders:

  • 1.6 MWdc carport solar photovoltaic (PV) system
  • 259 kWdc rooftop solar PV array atop Panasonic’s facility
  • Anchor electricity load at Panasonic’s Technology and Business Solutions Center
  • 1 MW / 2MWh lithium-ion battery energy storage system (BESS)
  • Switching/control systems to operate the BESS and microgrid functionality

As an example of the portfolio model for sharing microgrid assets, Denver International Airport owns the parking lot and carport structure at Peña; Xcel Energy owns and operates the solar PV system atop the structure under a long-term lease; and Panasonic performs the operations and maintenance on the system.

The BESS, owned and operated by Xcel Energy, leverages the microgrid assets to perform a stack of five distinct but complementary use cases that aid grid integration of solar energy, improve power quality and reliability for C&I customers like Panasonic, and improve operations of Xcel Energy’s distribution grid. The ability to stack value streams through a multi-use microgrid strengthens project economics, even in advance of continued cost declines for battery energy storage.

“Recent years have seen a number of substantial advancements and innovative deployments with battery energy storage,” said Jamie Evans, managing director of the Energy Solutions Group at Panasonic Enterprise Solutions. “We’re honored to be included among award finalists that include such notable achievements as grid-scale storage to offset California’s Aliso Canyon gas leak, SDG&E’s project tapping energy storage as a reliable peaking resource, and an urban microgrid in Brooklyn, NY.”

The announcement of ESNA Innovation Award finalists comes as the U.S. energy storage market experienced its largest quarter to date. According to GTM Research, in Q1 2017 the U.S. deployed 234 MWh of energy storage, compared to 336 MWh of storage deployment in all of 2016.

Voting for the 2017 Innovation Awards will remain open through July 7 via the ESNA website: https://esnaexpo.com/awards/voting. One vote per user will count toward the final results.
