E-mobility is much more than just the clean mobility solution of the future. When electric vehicles are fueled by solar power, it also drives the deployment of photovoltaics forward. Intersolar Europe, the world’s leading exhibition for the solar industry, and Power2Drive Europe, the new exhibition for e-mobility and charging infrastructure, held June 20–22, 2018 in Munich, Germany under the umbrella of The smarter E Europe, will thus showcase the diverse prospects created for the environment by the combination of PV and e-mobility.

 

This press release features multimedia. View the full release here: http://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20180117005988/en/

Electric vehicles can be driven and charging stations can be fed with electricity from PV systems, making e-mobility a driver of the PV market. Ideally, electric vehicles are charged with solar power directly from the owner’s roof. For example, a PV system with a capacity of 3 kilowatts peak in a single-family home in Germany can provide enough power annually for electric vehicle owners to drive around 14,000 kilometers (8,700 miles) emission free. This is particularly profitable for PV systems with a capacity of up to ten kilowatts, as these are now exempt from the EEG levy on self-consumption in Germany.

 

New business models

 

New business models are also opening up for PV companies and system owners, who can profit from solar filling stations, for example. Installers too are expanding their business activities and making the transition to automobile sales. For example, solar technology suppliers are cooperating with manufacturers to offer electric vehicles for sale or lease.

 

Where energy and mobility interact

 

This development makes a platform that combines the industrial fields of automobiles and energy even more important. With Intersolar and Power2Drive Europe, The smarter E Europe closes the gap between the two fields. The combination of PV and e-mobility also plays a significant role in the presentations at the Intersolar Europe Conference and Power2Drive Europe Conference. Visitors here can learn all about the most important topics in the industry – from innovative charging solutions to technologies for PV systems.

 

The smarter E Europe

 

The smarter E Europe, the innovative platform for new energy solutions, forms an umbrella for events and topics that drive the new energy world by bringing together four energy exhibitions: Intersolar Europe, ees Europe, Power2Drive Europe and EM-Power.

Fluence, an energy storage company owned by Siemens and The AES Corporation, announced its new technology platform, called SunFlex Energy Storage, that both improves and expands the capabilities of photovoltaic solar generation, already the fastest growing resource in the power sector. The company's newest energy storage technology platform enables solar facilities to sell up to 50 percent more clean energy per site, eliminates solar variability across the day – such as that caused by passing clouds – and expands the delivery of energy into the night, creating an on-demand solar resource.

 

“Solar and energy storage are the cheapest way to provide power in a number of markets today, and will reach economic parity in many more countries over the next five years,” said Stephen Coughlin, president and CEO of Fluence. "With Fluence’s SunFlex Energy Storage platform, customers can now deliver clean, abundant and low-cost solar energy on-demand, day or night.”

 

The growth in solar generation globally has been remarkable with the share of photovoltaics as a percentage of total generation doubling seven times between 2000 and 2015, according to Bloomberg New Energy Finance. However, the industry faces headwinds as increasing solar generation creates challenges for network operators, tasked with controlling system reliability, to manage the uncertainty caused by this variable resource. With Fluence's new technology platform, solar energy can now be delivered when it is needed most, not just when it is available. This innovation eliminates the need for back-up generation, such as peaking gas plants or reciprocating engines, to manage solar variability. This is especially critical on many microgrids and islands, where solar and storage combined are now the cheapest and most reliable form of energy available.

 

"The Fluence team originally developed energy storage solutions to replace inefficient or underutilized traditional power infrastructure assets such as power reserves, peaking, or wires," said John Zahurancik, COO of Fluence. “Today, as new power investment is flowing mainly into new solar generation, we have the chance to make this more efficient from the start. With our solution, we can get more solar energy from the same site and make the best use of our power networks.”

 

The Fluence SunFlex Energy Storage technology platform builds upon many of the industry-leading controls and architectural principles from Advancion and Siestorage, the company’s two technology platforms and the experience gained from working with leading solar developers such as sPower and AES Distributed Energy. The new platform captures the solar energy that otherwise would be lost during daily peak solar hours, and will increase the volume of energy delivered from a single site by up to 50 percent by allowing developers to add more solar panels without the cost of changing their interconnection. In addition, the new platform improves plant stability by smoothing and limiting the ramping of solar output, and in many areas, simplifies the interconnection process for combined solar and storage facilities. These improvements are only available from tailored energy storage solutions like Fluence’s SunFlex Energy Storage platform. In addition, energy storage can expand the capabilities of solar facilities by increasing the capacity factor of the plant and adding new sources of revenue from frequency regulation and other grid services.

 

With 10 years of experience and nearly 500 MW of energy storage projects deployed or awarded, Fluence is the leading energy storage technology and services company. Fluence combines the experience, talent and backing of industry giants and storage market leaders Siemens and AES to offer an unparalleled suite of energy storage capabilities. The Fluence team focuses on solving customers’ energy problems and prioritizing lasting partnerships over simply delivering products.

NTPC has fulfilled its commitment; seeks protection for 1,600 MW Gadarwara project

17th Jan, 2018

Gadarwara (District Narsinghpur, MP) – State-owned power utility NTPC Ltd has fulfilled all its commitments for acquisition of land for its 1,600 MW Gadarwara power project and will continue to work towards local area development and betterment of affected people even after the project goes on stream.

We appeal to the local people to support the project of national importance from which half of the electricity generated will be for the state of Madhya Pradesh. We have fulfilled all our commitment in line with the Order of Rehabilitation Dep of Govt of MP and the tripartite agreement signed with the land owners and administration,” a spokesperson said here.

The payment for the land is as per the rate decided by the government. As per the agreement, NTPC paid Rs 14.5 lakh per acre for irrigated land and Rs 10.5 lakh for non-irrigated land as a package. This apart, the corporation also paid Rs 3.5 lakh per acre(Minimum Rs 3 lakh) as one-time payment in lieu of employment as rehabilitation grant and the agreement made it clear that no additional money or employment will neither be demanded nor will be accepted.

However, the agitation by the local villagers has impacted the project work as about 3,000 specialised workforce has left the site and the work has come to stand still from December 22. This is likely to impact adversely the project commissioning schedule which is targeted by the end of current financial year ie March, 2018.

Project management has approached district and state administration for safety of project site and workers for resuming the work as heavy machines and equipment has landed at the site and lying idle.

"TS4-F was developed to offer our customers the first patent-protected MLPE in the market that supports SunSpec Alliance signaling specifications," says Zvi Alon, CEO at Tigo. "For PV system owners who wish to address only the mandatory shutdown needs and do not require optimization or monitoring, the TS4-F provides a certified, cost-effective rapid shutdown solution with all the safety features of the TS4 Platform."

 

What's the difference between TS4-F (Fire Safety) and TS4-S (Safety)?

 

Tigo's TS4-F and TS4-S are both rapid shutdown devices, however TS4-F is a PLC SunSpec-compliant signaling while TS4-S uses wireless signaling. TS4-F requires an initiator to comply with the rapid shutdown requirements while TS4-S uses Tigo's CCA and Gateway to transmit a rapid shutdown signal. TS4-F cost-effectively targets rapid shutdown while TS4-S includes module-level monitoring with rapid shutdown. Both TS4-F and TS4-S are patent-protected.
