Energy Select New Md. C-PACE Registered Contractor (Ind. Report)
C-PACE,Energy Select LLC
Date: 2020-10-23
Leonardtown-based, Energy Select LLC, is now the only Maryland C-PACE registered contractor in Southern Maryland. Commercial Property Assessed Clean Energy (C-PACE) focuses on making commercial buildings more energy-efficient. This, in turn, allows county governments to create jobs, retain businesses, and help the local economy.

Government C-PACE policies are structured in such a way as to consider commercial and non-profit energy projects to be just as beneficial to the public as other vital infrastructure. C-PACE allows counties to access funding from private capital. This upfront financing enables commercial property owners to make any necessary energy efficiencies. The improvements are repaid via surcharges on property taxes.

Energy Select provides numerous clean energy solutions that qualify for the C-PACE initiative -- Solar Energy Equipment and High-Efficiency Lighting and Building Systems. The company also provided solar panel installation, energy audits, lighting retrofits, and other money-saving services for both residential and commercial customers. partner with local contractors to provide solutions such as Building Shell or Envelope Improvements.

Hibiki Wind Energy selects MHI Vestas Offshore Wind as Preferred Wind Turbines Supplier
Hibikinada Offshore Wind Farm , MHI Vestas
Date: 2019-11-29
220 MW Hibikinada Offshore Wind Farm will be the first in Asia Pacific to feature MHI Vestas’ V174-9.5 MW wind turbines. MHI Vestas has confirmed that its flagship V174-9.5 MW was selected as the preferred wind turbine for the Hibikinada Offshore Wind Farm. Hibikinada is the first awarded, commercial-scale wind power project to be announced in Japan, the strongest signal to date that the Japanese offshore wind energy market is rapidly stirring to life. Once installed, the wind power project will feature the most powerful wind turbines operating in Japan. The landmark project will be developed by Hibiki Wind Energy, a consortium of five partners who have the ambition to build a new energy infrastructure in Japan to advance the country’s renewable energy transition.

Consumers Energy, Sunverge Partner on Energy Storage (Ind. Report)
Consumers Energy, Sunverge
Date: 2019-10-23
Consumers Energy, Michigan's largest energy provider, and distributed energy resource (DER) control and aggregation specialist Sunverge are reporting their collaboration to leverage Sunverge's real-time control, aggregation and orchestration platform with Sunverge Energy Storage technology for a Consumers Energy residential battery storage pilot.

Sunverge worked with Consumers Energy to evaluate the energy provider's distribution circuits and identify grid locations suitable to test the potential benefits and value from behind the meter battery storage. Using this analysis, Consumers Energy selected a circuit in the Grand Rapids area to conduct the pilot.

DOE Awards $2Mn for Performance Computing Energy Efficiency (Funding)
DOE EERE
Date: 2019-07-29
In Washington, the U.S. DOE Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) reports it has awarded $2 million in funding for seven new high performance computing projects, as part of the High Performance Computing for Energy Innovation (HPC4EI) Initiative.

The initiative is a DOE-wide effort comprising EERE, the Office of Fossil Energy (FE), the Office of Science, and the National Laboratories. The initiative helps to leverage the National Laboratories' high performance computing capabilities to address challenges in manufacturing and materials through state-of-the-art modeling, simulation, and data analysis. Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) leads the HPC4EI program along with partner laboratories Argonne, Lawrence Berkeley, Los Alamos, Oak Ridge, Pacific Northwest and Sandia National Laboratories, as well as the National Renewable Energy Laboratory and National Energy Technology Laboratory. Funded projects include:

  • NYC-based Ferric, Inc. will partner with LLNL to develop analytical tools that will combine traditional electromagnetic finite-element analysis with micromagnetic simulation.

  • Applied Materials in Sunnyvale, Calif. will continue to work with LLNL on Phase II of developing predictive modeling capabilities for the advanced film deposition technique, High Power Impulse Magnetron Sputtering.

  • Gas Technology Institute in Des Plaines, Ill., Gopher Resource, and Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) will partner to use high performance computing to increase the productivity of secondary lead furnaces.

  • Kingsport, Tenn.-based Eastman Chemical will collaborate with Argonne National Laboratory on developing open-source software-based models of a gas atomizer based on ongoing work being performed at Eastman.

  • Praxair Surface Technologies Inc. in Indianapolis will work with Ames National Laboratory to enhance the efficiency of metal powder production for additive manufacturing applications.

    Within the High Performance Computing for Materials (HPC4Mtls) Program, EERE's Vehicle Technologies Office has selected two projects:

  • PPG Industries will collaborate with LLNL and Pacific Northwest National Laboratory to apply classical molecular dynamics simulations and density functional tight-binding calculations.

  • AK Steel in Middletown, Ohio will collaborate with ORNL on thermo-mechanical forming process development to produce tailored strength automotive structural components. The Office of Fossil Energy selected two additional HPC4Mtls projects to support. Industry partners provide at least 20 pct of the funding for new projects.
