With a stated objective of insourcing of blade manufacturing to strengthen its supply chain and increasing competitiveness by delivering greater value, GE Renewable Energy has completed its $1.65bn acquisition of Danish LM Wind Power; one of the world’s biggest producers of wind turbine blades, supplying not only GE’s existing renewables business but also rivals such as Gamesa of Spain and Goldwind of China. The deal is the biggest since GE created a separate renewables arm and LM Wind Power is to continue supplying wind blades to all industry players.

Intersolar Summit USA East To Feature Solar and Energy Storage Leaders

Intersolar North America, the most-attended solar industry event in North America, has announced its one-day conference, Intersolar Summit USA East, in New York, will feature key solar and energy storage pioneers. New York itself, is a solar leader and has experienced a remarkable 795% growth in solar over the last 5 years. It’s now focused on an aggressive goal of generating 50% of all energy from renewables by 2030. Many executives will reflect on its progress and identify how similar tactics could be used to grow additional solar markets.

Manufacturing Of Printable Solar Panels Made Possible By Perovskite Breakthrough

A University of Toronto innovation could make printing solar cells as easy and inexpensive as printing a newspaper. Post-doctoral researcher Hairen Tan of U of T’s Faculty of Applied Science & Engineering and his team have cleared a critical manufacturing hurdle in the development of a relatively new class of solar devices called perovskite solar cells. This alternative solar technology could lead to low-cost, printable solar panels capable of turning nearly any surface into a power generator.
University Professor Ted Sargent, an expert in emerging solar technologies and the Canada Research Chair in Nanotechnology said, “Perovskite solar cells can enable us to use techniques already established in the printing industry to produce solar cells at very low cost.

Launch Of Coatings That Turns Existing Buildings And Vehicles Into Power Sources

SolarWindow Technologies has announced plans to develop a superb problem-solving technology of electricity-generating flexible glass. It anticipates installing these sheets of electricity-generating glass veneers over existing skyscraper windows, turning entire buildings into vertical power generators and helping reduce their carbon footprint. These same veneers could be applied to flat and curved surfaces on automobiles, trucks, buses, aeroplanes, and boats to generate onboard electrical power.

Fraunhofer Enables Manufacturers Of PV Modules To Keep Pace With Tech Advances

With SmartCalc.CTM, Fraunhofer ISE has developed a software that helps reduce the cell-to-module power losses in PV module manufacturing. Research and industry invest lots of know-how in improving solar cell efficiency. In order that PV modules benefit from the advances in cell efficiency, the cell-to-module integration process must be performed reliably with low losses. The software was developed with this in mind and harnesses the near 40-year expertise, in this field, of Fraunhofer.
