When Odd soccer club wanted to be the greenest soccer club in Europe, and Skagerak Energi – its largest supporter – wanted an energy lab, ABB enabled both. At the newly inaugurated energy lab, 5,700 square meters of solar modules cover the rooftop of Skagerak Arena and produce a nominal power of 800kWp. Battery energy storage ensures maximum use of renewable power even at low light. The photovoltaic system powers the stadium and provides the neighborhood with clean electricity. It also allows Skagerak to collect insights into how a prosumer system – where consumers both produce and consume electricity – operates under different conditions. ABB designed and executed the project with ABB AbilityTM PVS solar string inverters and ABB Ability™ e-mesh™ technology, including an Energy Management System

ClearVue Solar Glass Greenhouse Officially Opened

Article | April 20, 2021

A high-tech greenhouse comprised mainly of solar glass generating electricity to help run it was officially opened yesterday in Western Australia. ClearVue Technologies Limited’s solar glass involves a nanoparticle interlayer and spectral-selective coating on the rear external surface that enables 70% of natural light to pass through while redirecting infrared and UV light converted to infrared to the edge where it is harvested by solar cells. ClearVue says each 1m2 of its window product is currently rated to generate 30 watts-peak of electric power, but also mentions a new-generation product with the proven ability to generate 40 watts peak per m2 to be available sometime this year.

How EV Chargers Help Campus Energy Ecosystems Evolve

Article | March 6, 2020

Electric engines are incredibly efficient, getting useful work out of 85 percent of the energy that goes into them. Gas engines only get 30 percent, wasting a lot of the energy we pay to fill them up with. That one fact drives intense fuel cost savings for electric vehicles, a clear win for a campus shuttle and bus conversion. But switching from gas to electric also opens up a world of operational resilience, energy independence and sustainability — with the right implementation of electric vehicle charging technology.

Which Solar Panels are the Most Efficient?

Article | February 14, 2020

SunPower's solar panels are widely acknowledged to be the industry's most efficient1 with an ability to convert the most sunlight into usable energy. But the benefit for homeowners goes beyond SunPower’s solar panel technology. While other solar companies are hooked up to hybrid systems that use parts from several different companies, SunPower's panels are linked to integrated systems designed solely by their own manufacturers to absorb more light for more power.
