Major players in the solar industry, such as Longi Solar, are projecting accelerating growth over the near term.
US government research shows that solar-plus-storage is starting to dominate the nation’s power grid queues, representing the majority of new power plant applications.
US government researchers have collected 10 observations from recent research papers that look at solar- or wind-plus-storage power plants in the United States.
Reactive Technologies uses an ultracapacitor to send signals to the grid that help managers determine the level of system inertia, supporting power grid stability – and they’re coming to the United States.
Recurring power grid faults are testing solar inverter reactions, and have exposed issues that could seemingly be solved by improvements to commissioning, operations, and maintenance.
An American government lab sees utility-scale solar fleets degrading faster than projected at 1.2% per year, while newer and larger plants are degrading at just 0.7% per year. Older plants appear to be getting repowered in year seven, resulting in lasting performance increases.
The conversion of the 40 million acres of ethanol corn farms in the United States into solar-plus-food facilities could generate 1.5 times the nation’s electricity needs, while also powering a 100% electrified passenger vehicle fleet.
