Second Annual Electric Power Research Institute/Sandia Photovoltaic Systems Symposium

Sandia and Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) are delighted to host the second joint symposium on technical issues related to photovoltaic (PV) systems and related technologies. This year, the symposium will cover three areas: PV performance modeling; screening methods, distribution PV host­ing capacity, and advanced inverter modeling; and PV system reliability and maintenance strategies. Sandians […]

DOE Office of Electricity Delivery & Energy Reliability (OE) Energy Storage Safety Workshop

On February 17–18, 2014, Sandia National Laboratories and Pacific Northwest National Laboratory co-hosted the DOE OE Energy Storage Safety Workshop in Albuquerque, NM. This workshop’s goal was to address the need for validated energy-storage safety as identified in the DOE strategic plan for “Grid Energy Storage.” Thought leaders in the fields of deployment, operation, regulation, […]

Portable Hydrogen Fuel-Cell Unit to Provide Green, Sustainable Power to Honolulu Port

Clean hy­drogen power that’s expected to lower emissions and reduce energy consumption will be coming to the Port of Honolulu in 2015 after the completion of a new fuel-cell technology demonstration, one that could lead to a commercial technology for ports worldwide. Ports have been a major water- and air-pollution source in the U.S.—but remained […]

Federal Electric Regulatory Commission Revised Its Small Generator Interconnection Procedure and Small Generator Interconnection Agreement

After two years of industry consultation, the Federal Electric Regulatory Commission (FERC) has issued a final ruling on the much anticipated modification of the FERC Small Generator Interconnection Procedure (SGIP) which governs the interconnection of small generators (smaller than 20 MW) that sell wholesale electricity. The SGIP also serves as a template for state rules that […]
