IEA PVPS has published its 19th edition of the international survey report on Trends in Photovoltaic (PV) Applications up to 2013. The “Trends Report” is one of the flagship publications of the IEA PVPS Programme, documenting the evolution of PV applications within its member countries as well as worldwide.Read full article
This Application Note outlines two methods to assess the viability of industrial processes powered by an onsite wind turbine. Both of the methods focus on whether an organization has the flexibility needed to gain maximum benefit from self-consumption of onsite wind power.Read full article
Understanding the efficiency of a PV system and the root cause of faults can contribute to the further development and implementation of PV systems worldwide.
The market for PV systems is rapidly and significantly expanding in an increasing number of countries. This strong market expansion requires the availability of and access to reliable information on the performance and sustainability of PV systems, to be shared with the various actors.Read full article

"The Future is out there somewhere; we just have to make sure we get the best one"
"There are an infinite number of ways of running an Electricity Supply system badly"
When the GB System Demand Peaks at 60GW, we are pushing 85 million Brakehorsepower through a quite fragile set of wires.Read full story
Electric current is used for two very different purposes: the transmission of energy and the transmission of information. Although the methods and equipment used differ significantly, the same underlying properties of electric current are utilised.Read full article
What are the barriers and drivers for energy efficiency? Under what circumstances do they arise? How important are they in different contexts? How do the different actors intervene to overcome these barriers? These are just some of the issues discussed in “Barriers and drivers to energy efficiency – A new taxonomical approach” by B. Sudhakara Reddy of the Indira Gandhi Institute of Development Research in Mumbai.Read full article
