The development of wind power in India began in the 1990s, and has progressed steadily in the last few years. The short gestation periods for installing wind turbines, and the increasing reliability and performance of wind energy machines have made wind power a favored choice for capacity addition in India. Currently, India has the fifth 1 largest installed wind power capacity in the world. Wind power accounts for 6% of 2 India's total installed power capacity, and it generates 1.6% of the country's power . It 3 is estimated that 6,000 MW of additional wind power capacity will be installed in India between 2010 and 2012, taking the total installed capacity beyond 15,000 MW. In addition to the progress made in wind turbine installed capacities, the progress of the overall wind energy ecosystem has been encouraging as well. Pointers to this are the increasing number of component manufacturers and the rapid utilization of India's land for wind energy. While the growth of wind power in India was largely driven by tax incentives until recently, it is expected that more IPPs (independent power producers) will be interested in investing in this segment with the recent announcement of generation-based incentives
Improving turbine reliability to 99.9% will require new data analysis approaches across the industry, according to a researcher linked to Sandia National Laboratories.
German-based Renusol GmbH is among the fastest growing businesses on the European market for PV mounting systems. Renusol America was established in January 2011 in Atlanta to service the American market and, along with Renusol GmbH, was acquired by Ohio-based RBI Solar in June, 2014.
Every day, cyber attacks against government and commercial computer networks number in the millions. According to U.S. Cyber Command, Pentagon systems are probed 250,000 times per our.
It seems the utilities industry is being attacked from all sides. The decline of coal-fired power plants, the rise of renewables, finalization of the nation’s first carbon regulations, and the proliferation of distributed energy resources, to name a few, are all pressuring utilities to adjust their business models in order to operate in a new energy ecosystem.
Which one can drive stronger outcomes for project owners?
EPC or EPCM? When it comes to contract strategies for major projects, Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) and Engineering, Procurement, Construction and Management (EPCM) style contracts are two of the key options, but which one provides better outcomes for project owners?
Water in steam tubes can lead to trouble. However, a new solution, utilizing ultrasonic flowmeter technology, allows precise water detection in heat recovery steam generator (HRSG) systems, giving operators the opportunity to alleviate the problem before failure results.
The drastic speed increase associated with LTE – 20 times faster than UMTS – will forever change the way in which mobile services are used. Not only this will spur development of rich new broadband services, but the increased capacity will trigger the deployment of new handset features, including higher screen resolution and better battery technologies.
In recent years, the ORC market expanded rapidly in terms of installed plants, power and number of ORC manufacturers. New markets, like the waste heat recovery from industrial process or endothermic engines, are growing very fast, but the biomass combustion and the exploitation of geothermal brines have been confirmed as the two main fields of application.
This solution provides a way to use the PXG900 to receive and store waveforms from one or more PXM2280 or PXM2290 power quality meters.
Almost 60 percent of utility executives in 20 countries rank distributed generation as the biggest disrupter to their operations, according to a 2017 survey by Accenture, the global services company. Distributed generation, the executives predict, will reduce their revenues, increase grid faults and erode their business models.
