Eco Energy World (EEW) Australia, an Australian developer of large scale solar projects, is excited to announce the approval of 3 new solar projects totaling 410MW, including its largest project up to date of 280 MW in Bouldercombe, Queensland.
The projects will be connected directly to the grid, providing the possibility to supply energy not only to Queensland, but potentially New South Wales, Victoria and South Australia; aiding Queensland’s transition to sustainable means of large scale power generation.
EEW Chairman Svante Kumlin stated “Queensland has huge potential for solar energy with its high irradiance, good infrastructure and [...]
Fronius is launching its Smart Meter to manage PV feed-in limits and monitor energy consumption.
The Fronius Smart Meter measures the electricity consumption of a building and communicates in real time with the inverter, which then controls the system’s output power to keep the electricity fed into the grid at or below the feed-in limit.
An increasing number of grid operators set feed-in limits for grid-connected solar systems. The global smart meters market is estimated to grow from an expected $11.1 billion in 2014 to $18.2 billion by 2019, at a CAGR of 10.2 percent from 2014 to 2019, according to a study by MarketsandMarkets.
Thanks to high accuracy and fast [...]
Two Chinese companies have announced plans to build a one gigawatt solar photovoltaic plant in the exclusion zone surrounding the Chernobyl nuclear reactor, reviving the site after the worst nuclear power plant disaster in history.
Thirty years after a catastrophic meltdown in 1986 forced the authorities to evacuate all people and create an exclusion zone within a 30 kilometer radius of the Soviet nuclear plant located on the territory of modern Ukraine, Chinese clean energy giant Golden Concord Holdings Limited (GCL) embraced the ambitious project of reviving the area by building a solar plant within the exclusion zone’s confines.
GCL System Integration Technology [...]
