Tigo Energy Surpasses One-Terawatt
Tigo Energy, Inc., the solar industry's leading Flex MLPE (Module Level Power Electronics) supplier, today announced that the solar energy monitoring function in the Tigo Energy Intelligence Solution has logged more than one Terawatt hour of photovoltaic energy generated by customer systems in the European market. Powered by the Tigo TS4 family of MLPE products, the Energy Intelligence Solution reports high-precision, module-level monitoring of solar installations.With PV installations across Europe expected to grow by 40 GW in 2022, solar continues to take a leading position as the clean energy production method of choice throughout the region. With the Tigo Energy Intelligence (EI) Solution, a comprehensive digital platform designed to optimize the installer experience from commissioning through operations and maintenance (O&M), solar installers, asset owners, and homeowners have a powerful tool to monitor system performance down to the module. When deployed with the Tigo TS4-A-O, Tigo customers can also quickly see the amount of reclaimed energy produced by their solar systems.

“There’s no better way to mitigate module mismatch or shading and keep track of individual module performance than by deploying the Tigo TS4-A-O optimizer with the CCA Kit, Tigo offers great design flexibility, is easy to install, and, as demonstrated by the many neighboring households who followed suit after seeing the results from one installation, offers the kind of smart features which add substantial value for solar customers.”

-Jordi Palet Martinez, solar developer, CEO, and CTO at The IPv6 Company.

The initial residential installation for The Ipv6 Company was in Galapagar, near Madrid. This 9.5kW system serves both home and office with a small data center. The terraced roof and shading dynamics of the structure made optimizers the ideal solution for the fifteen 375Wp modules, and the small data center was well suited for a battery. The installation includes two 400Wp and seven bifacial 410Wp solar modules, a replacement hybrid inverter, a 7.5kWh storage system and full deployment of Tigo TS4-A-O with CCA Kit. The Energy Intelligence (EI) software with patented reclaimed energy features has demonstrated that the optimizers provide a 26% performance improvement. To date, the system has inspired 12 more homeowners in the neighborhood to work with Mr. Palet Martinez to go solar.

“This milestone is a reality thanks to the brilliant work done by our network of distribution partners and installers in communicating the tangible benefits of clean and sustainable solar energy and deploying high-quality systems, Moreover, this milestone highlights the crucial importance of data monitoring in modern photovoltaic installations. System performance visibility is central to success on multiple levels, whether you are a system owner aiming to optimize energy consumption or an installer with an entire fleet of installations to manage.”

-Mirko Bindi, senior vice president of sales and managing director, EMEA at Tigo Energy.

Halliburton Introduces Innovative Technologies, Sustainable Solutions at ADIPEC

Halliburton Company | October 31, 2022

Halliburton Company (NYSE: HAL) announced new products that highlight innovative technologies and sustainable solutions as part of its presence at the Abu Dhabi International Petroleum Exhibition and Conference (ADIPEC). In addition, Halliburton Chairman, President, and CEO Jeff Miller will participate Tuesday, Nov. 1 at 1:45 p.m. on the strategic panel, “Reconciling upstream oil and gas investment and the energy transition to meet global energy demand growth. Miller will discuss how the industry addresses its commitment to decarbonization and the energy transition while ensuring the worldwide economy has the fuel it needs to continue to grow. Collectively, the new technologies promote more precise and efficient drilling performance, remote automation for enhanced safety, and a reduced carbon footprint for cementing activities. The BrightStar® look-ahead resistivity service, the most recent addition to the Halliburton iStar™ drilling and logging platform, reveals the path ahead of the bit to deliver superior drilling performance and consistent well delivery. In one compact collar design, the BrightStar service maps formation and fluid boundaries up to 100 feet (30 meters) ahead of the bit, detecting formation changes with near-bit resistivity and anisotropy to increase geo-stopping confidence and accelerate proactive drilling decisions. The FloConnect® surface automation platform is a fully automated and scalable solution for efficient and safe surface well testing operations. An industry first, FloConnect controls, measures, and analyzes surface well testing through automated workflows. It allows data access in real time, process monitoring, and control from a command center or remote location. FloConnect reduces operational variabilities and optimizes workforce deployment, which improves personnel safety and lowers exposure to hazardous and complex operations by taking personnel out of the red zone. The NeoCem™ E+ and EnviraCem™ systems leverage synergies between the chemical and physical properties of specialized materials combined with Portland cement. Halliburton’s innovative tailoring process engineered these reduced Portland systems to deliver high-performance, compressive strength and ductility at a lower density than conventional systems for improved barrier dependability. The Portland cement reduction helps customers lower their carbon emissions and provides engineered cement systems with enhanced cement sheath performance. Join Halliburton Oct. 31 – Nov. 1 in Hall 5, booth #5250 to learn more about the Company’s innovative technologies and sustainable solutions.
