  • Leveraging ADMS to maximize renewable benefits
    Solar is the most abundant renewable energy source available, but the ability to harness it and distribute it alongside existing sources of energy is new territory for many utilities and ISOs. This white paper from Schneider Electric looks at Advanced Distribution Management Systems.
  • 2015 Renewable Cities Conference Agenda

  • 2013 Lahmeyer REMIPEG Report: Hydropower
    In 2013 the cumulated hydropower capacity reached 1,103 GW, with an estimated annual electricity generation of around 3,704 TWh/y. This growth positioned hydropower energy as the highest cumulated installed capacity among renewable energy sources. Intriguing, considering that over the last two years solar and wind power generation actually grew faster than hydropower.
  • 2013 Lahmeyer REMIPEG Report: Wind
    Newly installed wind power capacity decreased by nearly 20% in 2013, generating 35.4 GW compared to 45 GW in 2012. In fact, capacities generated in 2013 fell to levels not seen since 2009. REMIPEG research shows it was the first decline in the segment in past 15 years.
  • 2013 Lahmeyer REMIPEG Report: Solar PV
    The global newly installed PV power capacity reached 36 GW in 2013, a 28% increase over 2012. Another dramatic change: Europe, the prevalent market in the PV sector in 2012, scaled back a bit as Asia assumed the leadership position in the PV sector with 19 GW of newly installed capacity.
