AES, 5B Become Strategic Partners to Help Clients Accelerate Solar Energy Use

The AES Corporation | July 30, 2020

The AES Corporation announced today that it has made a strategic investment in 5B, a solar technology innovator based in Sydney, Australia. 5B's revolutionary MAVERICK design enables customers to add solar resources at a pace that is three times faster while providing up to two times more energy within the same footprint of traditional solar facilities. Together, AES and 5B will help clients accelerate their use of solar energy. The total global investment in the solar energy market between 2021-2025 is projected to reach $613 billion as companies transition to greener sources of energy. 5B's MAVERICK design enables companies to make that transition more quickly and while using less land. The MAVERICK design is a pre-wired, prefabricated solar solution that is folded up, shipped to site and rolled out. The 5B approach streamlines engineering, procurement and construction for ground-mounted solar facilities. MAVERICK also removes common barriers for organizations to deploy solar resources, including the availability of land and ground penetration, making solar possible in more places while providing the flexibility to easily relocate the resources in some applications.

Aurora Solar Surpasses 4 Million Solar Project Designed Milestone

Aurora Solar | October 29, 2020

Aurora Solar—the business' driving programming stage for appropriated sun oriented and capacity—reported today that the quantity of PV ventures planned in their product outperformed the 4,000,000 achievement. Significantly more critical is that Aurora Solar arrived at 4 million activities from 3 million in only a half year. "This is a big milestone for us, but more importantly, for the solar industry as a whole," said Samuel Adeyemo, Co-founder of Aurora Solar. "The industry is growing fast, and we're excited to be able to provide solutions that can help it scale even faster." Utilizing Aurora, sun based experts can perform distant sun oriented concealing examination, plan sunlight based and capacity frameworks, estimate how much energy the PV framework will deliver, compute power charge reserve funds, decide the quantity of batteries for reinforcement power, produce deals proposition with financing alternatives, and significantly more. Virtually all sunlight based organizations are utilizing in any event one outsider programming, and a lion's share of them are utilizing programming explicitly for PV framework plan. This bodes well. New client procurement costs are high, and programming can help decrease delicate expenses and increment work process productivity. Sunlight based organizations don't need to construct their own devices for framework plan or tasks; they have choices to redistribute for arrangements—a sign the sun powered industry is developing. "Site visits are nearly a thing of the past, and the design workflow is much faster and smoother using Aurora," said Matt Webb, Sunpro Solar's Director of Design. "Aurora's cutting-edge technology allows my team to get access to more data points with greater accuracy for any site." The sun powered industry encountered a huge log jam in establishments with work stoppages and vulnerability from COVID-19, however there are numerous hopeful signs that point towards the business' versatility and quality. The U.S. Sunlight based Market Insight Q3 2020 report delivered by the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) and Wood Mackenzie is guaging a general 37% yearly development this year—down only 6% from pre-pandemic figures. For private sun powered, establishments weren't as seriously affected as initially expected because of facilitating of severe sanctuary set up orders and installer plan of action developments. Industry Recognition Aurora Solar's strong high growth is coupled with wide industry recognition as the leading software. Aurora Solar was announced as a finalist for the S&P's 2020 Global Energy Awards (winners will be announced in December) Aurora was voted by the community and awarded the Solar Power World's Leadership in Solar Energy Award for software multiple times—most of any software In early 2019, Aurora Solar raised $20M in Series A funding, largest for any solar software About Aurora Solar Inc. Aurora Solar is a fast-growing company that builds powerful software solutions for distributed solar and storage. Aurora became the first to offer a range of tools to easily size a battery backup system and make recommendations based on the homeowner's backup needs in September 2020.

JinkoSolar, JA Solar and Longi expect production capacity of 182mm modules to reach 54GW in 2021

JinkoSolar | November 21, 2020

On 12 November 2020, the “Customer Value Focused, Advanced PV Technology for Better LCOE-182mm Module and System Technology” Conference, co-sponsored by JinkoSolar, JA Solar and Longi Green Energy, was successfully held in Shanghai. During the conference, solar inverter and tracker manufactures, power design institutes, EPC enterprises and third-party certification institutions issued a comprehensive statement on the design, production cost, supporting infrastructure, system application and product certification of the 182mm modules. With the arrival of the grid parity era, the industry has recognised the benefits of deploying high-power modules in large sizes for their ability to reduce the LCOE. However, larger modules sizes come with more technology challenges.

Summit Ridge Energy Holds Ribbon Cutting for Nation's Largest Rooftop Community Solar Array

Summit Ridge Energy | December 01, 2021

Summit Ridge Energy held a ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate completion of the nation's largest rooftop community solar project. The 9.2 MW solar project, operated by SRE and jointly owned with Annapolis-based climate investment firm Hannon Armstrong, is located in Carroll County, Maryland on a large commercial warehouse owned by STAG Industrial. Black Bear Energy facilitated the partnership between SRE and STAG while Powerflex provided engineering, procurement and construction services for the project. Once operational, the community solar project will provide monthly energy savings to approximately 1,300 residential and small commercial customers located across the state. This is a marquee project for Summit Ridge, our capital partners at Hannon Armstrong and the entire community solar industry. Leveraging 23 acres of largely unused roof space to generate energy savings for thousands of Marylanders is precisely the direction our nation's energy generation strategy needs to head." Steve Raeder, CEO, Summit Ridge "This solar project resulting from the partnership of Summit Ridge Energy and STAG Industrial is an excellent example in alignment with Governor Hogan's roadmap of deploying renewable energy on available rooftop or brownfield space," said Dr. Mary Beth Tung, Director of the Maryland Energy Administration. "Clean energy from this installation will benefit the local economy and create opportunities for a wide variety of organizations and residents." SRE's rooftop community solar portfolio across the state has grown to over 75 MW's, enough to power nearly 11,000 homes. Nearly one-third of the projects will serve low-to-moderate income ("LMI") customers, highlighting the industry's unique ability to provide renewable energy savings to Americans of all socioeconomic backgrounds. The recent expansion of Maryland's Community Solar Pilot Program is evidence of community solar's rapid growth within the broader renewable energy space, as is Department of Energy's October announcement of a National Community Solar Partnership target of 26 GW by 2025, enough to power the equivalent of five million homes and create $1 billion in annual energy savings. About Summit Ridge Energy Summit Ridge Energy is the country's leading owner-operator of community solar assets. Through dedicated funding platforms, the team acquires pre-operational projects within the rapidly growing solar energy and battery storage sectors.
