Published

on

Check out this week’s list of some of the newest announcements related to clean energy products.

Another week, another bunch of announcements! To stay up to date on what’s new, check out this latest clean energy product roundup:

TrinaTracker

Trina Solar launched the TrinaTracker Agile 1P Dual Row. The company said that the Agile 1P tracker is fully compatible with ultra-high power modules ranging from 400W to 670W+. The Agile series is a new member to the TrinaTracker family after the Vanguard series launched in December.

Agile 1P adopts the 1P Dual Row design with what the company said are four key technology advantages: higher reliability, greater power generation, optimized balance of system, and enhanced adaptability. SuperTrack algorithm delivers an extra yield gain of up to 8%. The Dual-Row design of Agile 1P shortens the tracker length to 72 meters, enabling installation of up to 120 modules per tracker, and achieving higher installation capacity under the same layout by 15.6%. More information is here.

Hybrid inverter

Schneider Electric Solar said that its XW Pro solar hybrid inverter is now eligible for California’s energy storage rebates. Customers can install the XW Pro through the Self-Generation Incentive Program (SGIP), which provides rebates to support homeowners and communities in acquiring affordable energy storage in California.

Depending on their eligibility, SGIP recipients can receive up to $1,000 per kilowatt-hour for their qualifying energy resources. The company said its XW Pro offers a high overload power rating (1.75x). More information is here.

Series 6 CuRe

First Solar said that its Series 6 CuRe next-generation photovoltaic (PV) technology has a warranted degradation rate of 0.2% per year, which it said is the lowest rate for any commercially available PV product today based on publicly available information. It said the degradation rate is up to 60% lower than conventional crystalline silicon (c-Si) products, and ensures that the module will retain at least 92% of its original performance at the end of its 30-year warranty. The degradation rate, combined with what the company said is a superior temperature coefficient, spectral response, and shading behavior, advances the Series 6 CuRe platform’s competitiveness in all markets. It said the enhanced performance is enabled by First Solar’s semiconductor-level innovation and its Copper Replacement (CuRe) program. CuRe, developed by the company’s scientists at its Silicon Valley and Ohio research and development (R&D) centers, replaces copper with atoms of Group V elements that enhance performance, delivering long-term stability. More information is here.

Arctech rebrand

Arctech Solar has rebranded itself as Arctech and moved to new corporate headquarters in Kunshan, China. The company said that dropping “solar” from its brand name does not mean Arctech is abandoning solar from its business. It said the change better reflects its broader product portfolio and upgraded services. More information is here.

Amp up your bus

AMPLY Power is partnering with UES (Unique Electric Solutions) to offer a fleet electrification solution primed for V2G (vehicle-to-grid) opportunities being pursued by utilities and end customers. The approach includes repowering existing internal combustion engine trucks and buses with electric powertrains, charge management services, a V2G bi-directional EV charging system from Rhombus Energy Solutions, and baked-in coordination with the local utility.

The companies are deploying their joint solution for the Logan Bus Co., one of the largest school bus providers for the New York City Department of Education. More information is here.

Palmetto expansion

Palmetto said it has launched operations in Southern California, specifically in service areas covered by utilities Southern California Edison and San Diego Gas & Electric. California represents Palmetto’s 22nd state of operation.

Palmetto said that its technology, marketplace business model, and consumer mobile application are all designed to simplify and democratize access to clean energy, making it easier and more affordable to make the switch. Palmetto’s system helps homeowners estimate utility costs saved by switching to solar, work with a team of local solar experts to design and install a system that matches their needs, and receive comprehensive, long-term customer support. More information is here.

JinkoSolar signs up

JinkoSolar Holding said it has joined the United Nations Global Compact, the world’s largest corporate sustainability initiative. Under the U.N. Global Compact, signatories are encouraged to align their operations and strategies with key principles. More information is here.

Smart energy software

Stem Inc. said it completed six months operating a 345 MWh energy storage portfolio owned by Electrodes Holdings, which last year transferred portfolio control to Stem’s Athena smart energy software. Stem said that customers in the 86-site portfolio are now realizing more than 30% greater monthly energy savings on average compared to the previous software provider.

Within two months of being awarded the contract, Stem said it had onboarded to Athena management the portfolio that serves 25 large commercial and municipal customers in the Los Angeles area. Customers at these sites use Athena’s artificial intelligence and real-time decision-making to optimize energy storage systems and energy use. Stem also delivered local controllable capacity to an investor-owned utility where the portfolio is based. More information is here.

Tevva dévoile un camion électrique audacieux

Published

on

Il offre une autonomie allant jusqu’à 250 km en mode entièrement électrique ou jusqu’à 500 km avec sa technologie brevetée de prolongateur d’autonomie REX, qui a maintenant été améliorée pour utiliser des piles à combustible à hydrogène.

Conçu par une équipe dirigée par Ken Scott, anciennement directeur de l’ingénierie chez Bentley et Alexander Dennis, et dessiné par Dale Grewer, anciennement designer en chef chez Jaguar Land Rover, le Tevva Truck sera fabriqué dans une toute nouvelle usine dans la zone du London Thames Freeport, à proximité du centre de Londres et de l’Europe. L’usine devrait commencer à fabriquer 3 000 camions par an d’ici 2023.

Grâce aux solides partenariats avec les fournisseurs de Tevva, les opérateurs de flottes peuvent bénéficier d’un groupe motopropulseur BEV extrêmement fiable associé à un châssis dérivé de camion exceptionnellement robuste et éprouvé.

Asher Bennett, fondateur et PDG de Tevva, a déclaré : « La technologie transforme le secteur des véhicules commerciaux à un rythme effréné, le rendant plus sûr, plus écologique et entièrement plus efficace. Mais un changement significatif est un processus graduel, il doit se produire une étape à la fois, même si ces changements sont nécessaires dans la succession rapide. Le Tevva Truck constitue une transition naturelle vers l’électrification pour les gestionnaires de flotte, offrant une tranquillité d’esprit totale et une offre convaincante de coût total de possession, sans compromis sur l’autonomie et la fiabilité. »

Le Tevva Truck peut transporter jusqu’à 16 europalettes et plus de deux tonnes de charge utile pour un poids total en charge (PTAC) de 7,5 tonnes. Le coût total de propriété est comparable à celui d’un diesel ; la parité est atteinte à environ 3 000 km ou lorsque 500 litres de diesel sont consommés par mois.

Le Tevva Truck est le véhicule de troisième génération de Tevva. Il représente l’aboutissement de sept années de développement technique et des enseignements tirés de plus de 350 000 km d’essais en flotte. La production du camion Tevva devrait commencer en juillet 2022.

Le modèle Tevva Truck 7,5 tonnes est le premier d’une série de nouveaux camions électriques de Tevva. Pour en savoir plus, veuillez consulter le lien suivant : https://tevva.com.

Tevva afslører stærkt elektrisk lastbil designet til nutidens verden

Published

on

Det giver en rækkevidde på op til 250 km i fuld elektrisk funktion eller op til 500 km med sin patenterede rækkeviddeforlænger teknologi REX, som nu er blevet opgraderet til brug af brint brændselsceller.

Konstrueret af et team ledet af Ken Scott, tidligere teknisk direktør hos både Bentley og Alexander Dennis, og designet af Dale Grewer, tidligere chefdesigner hos Jaguar Land Rover, vil Tevva Truck blive fremstillet i et helt nyt anlæg i Thames Freeport området i London, med ledt adgang til central London og Europa. Anlægget forventes at begynde at producere 3.000 lastbiler om året inden 2023.

Takket være Tevvas stærke leverandørpartnerskaber kan flådeoperatører drage fordel af et ekstremt pålideligt BEV-drivaggregat parret med et usædvanligt robust og gennemprøvet lastbil chassis.

Asher Bennett, grundlægger og administrerende direktør for Tevva, sagde: “Teknologi ændrer erhvervskøretøjssektoren hastigt og gør den mere sikker, grønnere og helt igennem mere effektiv. Men meningsfuld forandring er en gradvis proces, det skal ske et trin ad gangen, selvom ændringerene er nødvendige hurtigt efter hinanden. Tevva Truck giver flådeledere en naturlig overgang til elektrificering, hvilket giver total ro i sindet og en overbevisende samlet ejeromkostning, uden at gå på kompromis med rækkevidde og pålidelighed.”

Tevva Truck kan bære op til 16 euro paller og over to tons nyttelast ved 7,5 tons bruttovægt (GVW). De samlede ejeromkostninger kan sammenlignes med en diesel; paritet opnås ved cirka 3.000 km, eller når der forbruges 500 liter diesel om måneden.

Tevva Truck er Tevvas tredje generation af køretøj, der repræsenterer kulminationen af syv års ingeniørudvikling og læring indsamlet fra over 350.000 km af forsøg i flåden. Produktionen af Tevva Truck påbegyndes i juli 2022.

Den 7,5 tons Tevva Truck model er den første i en serie af nye elektriske lastbiler fra Tevva. Besøg https://tevva.com for at finde ud af mere.

Asher Bennett, Founder and CEO of Tevva, said: “Technology is transforming the commercial vehicle sector at pace, making it safer, greener, and entirely more efficient. But meaningful change is a gradual process, it must happen one step at a time, even if those changes are needed in fast succession. The Tevva Truck provides a natural transition into electrification for fleet managers, providing total peace of mind and a compelling total cost of ownership proposition, with no compromise on range and reliability.”

The Tevva Truck can carry up to 16 euro pallets and over two tonnes payload at 7.5-tonnes Gross Vehicle Weight (GVW). The total cost of ownership is comparable to a diesel; parity is achieved at approximately 3,000 km or when 500 litres of diesel is consumed per month.

The Tevva Truck is Tevva’s third generation vehicle, representing the culmination of seven years of engineering development and the learning gathered from over 350,000 km of in-fleet trials. Production of the Tevva Truck is due to commence in July 2022.
