This report is being disseminated by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE). As such, this document was prepared in compliance with Section 515 of the Treasury and General Government Appropriations Act for fiscal year 2001 (public law 106-554) and information quality guidelines issued by DOE. Though this report does not constitute “influential” information, as that term is defined in DOE’s information quality guidelines or the Office of Management and Budget’s Information Quality Bulletin for Peer Review, the study was reviewed both internally and externally prior to publication. For purposes of external review, the study benefited from the advice and comments of nine energy industry stakeholders, U.S. Government employees, and national laboratory staff.

Here are the Best Ways to Optimize Your Solar Power

Article | April 8, 2020

Let’s take a look at the common case. It’s not a secret that we charge our devices for work or study at the office or at uni. When we are asked to do everything from home, we must use our own electricity to power our essential devices for work. Without even realizing, we also need to turn on the heater or AC to keep ourselves in comfortable temperature. Plus, there will be a time when we are tempted to turn on the TV, Xbox or PlayStation, for fun. In short, the more power we consume, the more expensive the bill we will pay! If we rely on solar energy, our system will get us covered. During the day, our solar PV will produce the most electricity we use at home. So, even if we are spending all day working or studying, we won’t need to pay more for our electricity. Yet, to make sure we can save money as much as possible, we must do it right. To make it easier, our team at Solar Arena has collected the best tips you can follow:

What is community solar and is it better than installing solar panels on your home?

Article | April 8, 2020

The U.S. reached a monumental 2 million solar installations in 2019. As more people look to save money through solar energy, many different options for doing so are becoming available. The U.S. Department of Energy defines community solar as “a solar-electric system that… provides power and/or financial benefit to… multiple community members.” These voluntary programs allow community residents to enjoy the perks of solar power without the large initial investment. The solar panels and related equipment are set up in a central location, so residents don’t need to buy and install equipment on their personal properties. The power produced by these projects is then shared by a community, and the hardware is either owned by the community itself or by a third party (i.e. Jaton’s community solar projects in California).

How the solar industry can deal with supply chain interruptions during COVID-19

Article | April 8, 2020

With the onslaught of the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic, we are all experiencing an unprecedented time. As the global economy wrestles with defining which industries and businesses are essential and non-essential, the United States has determined that construction, manufacturing and energy are essential businesses. Many companies and jobs within the solar industry fall into construction, manufacturing or energy, and in some cases all three categories. At Quest Renewables, we have outlined how we can limit interruptions to our supply chain during the current atmosphere. Our hope is that you will find this information helpful.

Artificial Intelligence in the energy sector: opportunities and challenges

Article | April 8, 2020

AI is certainly the talk about the hour nowadays. In high-tech industry, AI is the one with most potential. But before proceeding and discussing further on this exciting technology, we’d like to first understand what AI means-: As power is being generated from more volatile sources like solar and wind, the requirement is that power generation must react intelligently to consumption (and vice versa). With AI, we can evaluate, analyse and control participants connected to each other via these smart grids. With modern day emphasis on climate changes and increasing pressure to reduce CO2 emissions, we must find ways to have most of our power generated from renewable resources. The problem with renewable sources of energy are that they are unpredictable, which makes production of energy periodical and sometimes even chaotic. With renewable sources, there can be power outages or too much power generation which needs to be controlled. Smart storage, also known as Intelligent Energy Storage(IES) can effectively handle these disrupt changes in power supply.
