    Now is the time to plan for the integration of significant quantities of solar energy into the electricity grid. Although solar energy constitutes a very small portion of our energy system today, the size of the resource is enormous: The earth receives more energy from the sun in one hour than the global population uses in an entire year. In addition, the solar photovoltaic (PV) industry is growin... View full abstract»

    The photovoltaic (PV) industry has been a steady bright spot through economic ups and downs, and the future is looking brighter than ever. PV deployment has grown rapidly - from 0.3 MW in the 1980s to an expected 3,000 MW by 2010. Fueled by technical, economic, environmental, and social drivers, the contribution of PV to the U.S. electricity supply mix will likely be several times that amount by 2... View full abstract»

    In the United States and around the world, interest in concentrating solar power (CSP) is growing rapidly and its use is increasing. This solar thermal technology can meet a significant share of our electricity demand. Yet, while CSP's market share rises, concerns about the potential impact of CSP-generated electricity on the stability and operation of the U.S. power grid might create barriers to ...

    Germany is the country with the largest installed PV capacity in the world. As a result, Germany needs to be one of the first countries to look at adequate network integration. To tackle the challenges of the power system with regard to high PV penetration in the future, incentive systems are already formed and prepared that go one step further with regard to system integration. Also, grid codes f... View full abstract»

    The penetration of photovoltaic (PV) systems in Japan has been on the rise. Two factors have been promoting the increase: improved generation efficiency of PV modules and governmental subsidies for the initial cost of residential PV generation systems. As a result, the cumulative installed PV capacity has increased exponentially; however, the cumulative installed PV capacity by 2007 was only about... View full abstract»

    From 1910 to 1913, construction was under way on a huge hydroelectric complex on the Mississippi River at Keokuk, Iowa. Located at the foot of the Des Moines Rapids, the project included a dam that was constructed from Keokuk to Hamilton, Illinois, on the eastern shore of the river. The power plant was separated from the western shore of the river by a navigation lock to permit barge and ship trav... View full abstract»
