I recently returned from Anaheim, California where I attended Solar Power International trade show, largest Solar PV industry show in Northern America. My main focus was to explore how wind and solar can be successfully integrated in various renewable energy projects that would power commercial and industrial sites, water treatment plants and large farms. As the demand for distributed energy generation grows across North America, Northern Power Systems sees it as an opportunity to increase the projects’ Annual Energy Production (AEP), since wind and solar […]
Northern Power Systems power technology line now includes the FlexPhase power converter. We pegged this major announcement to our participation in the Energy Storage Association’s 25th Annual Conference and Expo. The event was held in Dallas, TX this year and seemed to reach new height and breadth for an industry coming-of-age. This year’s ESA Con felt more like a commercial trade show. A total of 1000+ participants from energy storage professionals to media and government representatives attended the ESA Con over a span of three […]
By Iain Hardie, Sr Sales Manager UK & Ireland I’m very excited that NPS will be exhibiting at the All Energy Exhibition & Conference this year. It is the UK’s largest renewable and sustainable technologies event. Glasgow is hosting the show and it is free to attend. Over 7,000 industry professionals from 48 countries will be attending from 6-7 May at the SECC. It is Northern Power Systems’ fourth year at All Energy. We will be showcasing the NPS 100, Britain’s leading 100kW wind turbine. […]
Recently, we sponsored and participated in the NY-BEST’s signature event, titled “Capture the Energy”. It was the largest energy storage conference in northeastern US, which focused on how battery and energy storage technologies are driving technical and commercial innovation for a version “2.0” of the grid. I had an opportunity to present how our power converter FlexPhase technology adds value to the energy storage sector. Timing of the conference couldn’t have been better as New York State is working on a new incentive program for energy […]
#WFES15: A view from the World Future Energy Summit, Abu Dhabi 2015 Our friends at WindUp Portugal shared a wonderful video they made at the World Future Energy Summit in Abu Dhabi last week. The Northern Power Systems booth starts at 33 seconds in. It was amazing to see the variety of companies, industries, and countries represented. Enjoy the show!
Mike Hobbis of Chippen Sodbury, South Gloucestershire UK takes us through the installation of his new NPS 100 wind turbine in this testimonial. After purchasing land for a dairy farm, Mike had a Northern Power Systems 100 kw wind turbine installed. His next step is to add 40-50 dairy cows and a small robotic dairy unit to milk the cows. His plans are to pasteurize, bottle the milk and sell it locally. He chose a renewable energy source because he wanted to have a low […]
By Iain Hardie, Regional Sales Director, UK Earlier this week, Northern Power Systems announced its new wind turbines will be backed by its 10-Year Performance Guarantee Programme (PGP) in the United Kingdom, the only 10-year guarantee programme for small wind turbines available in Britain. Reinout Oussoren, our VP of Global Sales, commented about the new programme, “This type of performance guarantee programme is normally only seen with utility scale projects and is the first of its kind offered for wind turbines up to 100kW in […]
Last week, we participated in the Energy Storage North America 2014 in San Jose, CA. The program focused on the convergence of energy storage in transportation, distributed generation and utility-scale applications. As a designer and manufacturer of state-of-the-art power converters and generators, the event was highly successful for our team. We enjoyed meeting energy storage solution (ESS) manufactures, integrators and potential partners in the industry. In particular, the OEM energy storage suppliers we met at the show were particularly interested in learning about our FlexPhase […]
We attended the Microgrid Deployment Workshop 2014 last week in Barcelona, Spain. The workshop, organized by HOMER Energy of Boulder, CO, was a two-day program that addressed business cases, technology mix, and critical steps for deploying microgrid systems in grid-tied, remote, island, and off-grid environments. It was attended by people from 28 countries, representing electric utilities, project developers, regulatory agencies, and manufacturers & service providers for renewable energy production and energy storage equipment. Chris Stewart, Global Business Development Manager at NPS, presented case studies of […]
