US: Installed prices continue rapid descent

first_imgUS: Installed prices continue rapid descentFor the fifth consecutive year, distributed PV system prices fell in the U.S. This time round, solar “soft” costs have contributed largely to the price reductions. Due to variability in factors, there is also no single price that characterizes the U.S. market. August 12, 2015 Shamsiah Ali Oettinger Installations Markets Markets & Policy Share The Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory has released the eighth edition of the “Tracking the Sun” report. The annual report highlights the price changes of residential and non-residential PV systems in the U.S.and is based on data gathered from more than 400,00 residential and non-residential PV systems installed between 1998 and 2014. This represents about 80% of all distributed PV capacity installed in the U.S. The national median installed prices for residential and small non-residential systems (?500 kW) that saw completion in 2014 were both $0.40/W lower year-over-year, a decrease of 9% and 10% respectively. Larger non-residential (>500 kW) system prices also saw a plunge of $0.70/W compared to 2013, a fall of 21%. Within the first half of 2015, installed prices fell by an additional $0.20 to $0.50 per W within a number of large market states. One key finding of this year’s report is that installed prices for distributed PV systems in the U.S. have plunged further. But this time round, the most significant contributor to the price declines have been identified as “soft costs” such as marketing, customer acquisition, system design, installation labour, permitting and inspections. The PV industry has been paying attention to such “soft costs” incurred, and thus companies have managed to come up with the appropriate cost reduction measures. The report says this is “noteworthy” because module price declines did not play much of a role for cost reductions this time round. Since 2012, module prices have remained relatively stable.

This Battery Could Charge a Mobile Phone in One Second

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailEmailShare to RedditRedditRedditShare to MoreAddThisMoreSmart phones are more sophisticated than ever, yet the batteries that power them have remained relatively archaic – until now.Scientists at the University of Illinois have managed to develop the most powerful microbatteries ever created, making them almost 1000 times stronger than existing lithium batteries and paving the way for smartphones that could be charged in just one second.Led by William P. King, a professor of mechanical science and engineering, the researchers published their results in the April 16 issue of Nature Communications. “This is a whole new way to think about batteries,” King said. “A battery can deliver far more power than anybody ever thought. In recent decades, electronics have gotten small. The thinking parts of computers have gotten small. And the battery has lagged far behind. This is a microtechnology that could change all of that. Now the power source is as high-performance as the rest of it.”“Any kind of electronic device is limited by the size of the battery – until now,” King said. “Consider personal medical devices and implants, where the battery is an enormous brick, and it’s connected to itty-bitty electronics and tiny wires. Now the battery is also tiny.”(READ the story in the Daily Mail)AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailEmailShare to RedditRedditRedditShare to MoreAddThisMorelast_img read more
