Germany Sets Yearly Solar Power Record

With more than two months to go in 2020, the amount of photovoltaic energy produced has already exceeded that in 2019.

BERLIN, Oct. 27, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — (GTAI) – German energy provider Eon says that since the beginning of the year solar energy facilities have fed some 43 billion kilowatt hours of electricity into the national grid. That’s already around one billion kilowatt hours more than in all of 2019 and enough to cover the electricity needs of all private households in Germany twofold.

Eon added that all told renewable sources have been responsible for 195 billion kilowatt hours of energy fed into the grid thus far in 2020. The figure represents an increase of four percent over January to October 2019.

Germany’s prestigious Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems (ISE) has also calculated that 2020 will be a record year for renewable energy in Germany. The institute says that from January through October renewables accounted for 52.5 percent of net public electricity production. In 2019, green power sources contributed 46 percent.

“These record achievements – together with recent commitments to green hydrogen and even more renewable energy production – are the cornerstones of the new ecological infrastructure that Germany will be building over the next decade,” says Germany Trade & Invest (GTAI) energy expert Tobias Rothacher. “We see a steady flow of innovative green industry players entering Germany as a manufacturing base to take advantage of the excellent market outlook here.”

ForeFront Power Develops Six New Solar Projects in Illinois, for a Grand Total of 22.9 MWdc in Three Years Incentivized by the Illinois Adjustable Block Program

The New Projects Include the Largest Solar-Powered System at a School District in Illinois and an On-Site System for a Global Tier One Auto Supplier

SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 27, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — ForeFront Power, a leading developer of distributed solar and energy storage projects in the U.S., today announced the completion of six solar projects in Illinois, adding 6.6 megawatts-DC (MWdc) / 5.5 megawatts-AC (MWac) of distributed power generation in McHenry and Marion Counties. Including these six new rooftop and ground-mount projects, ForeFront Power has now developed a total of 22.9 MWdc of solar energy projects in Illinois, resulting in $46.7 million dollars of investment in the state. All of these projects received incentives through the state’s Adjustable Block Program (ABP), which was established by the Future Energy Jobs Act to support the development of new photovoltaic distributed generation and community solar projects in Illinois.

“We’re proud to help the State of Illinois push toward its target of 25 percent renewable energy by the end of 2025. Thanks to the Adjustable Block Program, the six Aisin and Huntley solar energy projects have collectively generated 71 family-supporting jobs in the state this year, and will save these two customers millions of dollars,” said Rachel McLaughlin, vice president of sales and marketing at ForeFront Power. “We continue to see strong demand from customers who are excited to adopt locally sourced energy and to save on their electricity bills. Unfortunately, unless the renewable energy funding cliff is fixed in Springfield, continued development in the state looks infeasible for the next several years.”

The ABP allows qualifying new distributed generation projects to sell solar renewable energy credits (SRECs) to local utilities, which significantly reduces the cost of the generated energy.  The SRECs are then retired to count toward Illinois’ renewable energy goals.

About the Aisin and Huntley Portfolios  

Midwest Wind and Solar served as ForeFront Power’s engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) partner on the Aisin portfolio, while SolAmerica served as the EPC partner for the Huntley projects. The vast majority of the jobs created on these six solar projects were union jobs.

The Aisin Portfolio

Located 300 miles south of Chicago in Marion, Ill., the Aisin portfolio includes three solar energy projects with power sold to Aisin Illinois, subsidiary of global Tier One auto supplier, AISIN Group. The clean electricity from more than 2,900 solar panels will power manufacturing operations at Aisin MFG Illinois, Aisin Electronics Illinois, and Aisin Light Metals. Aisin Group employs 110,000 employees globally across its companies and has set a carbon reduction target of 59.9 tons of carbon dioxide per million sales dollars.

“We’re not just cutting emissions and costs with solar. We’re creating a more sustainable society and better serving the communities in which we operate,” said Jeff Copeland, general manager of environmental safety and energy at Aisin World Corp. of America. “We’re helping our customers and our local utility meet sustainability targets as well. All in all, investing in solar energy makes us a better community partner.”

The Huntley Portfolio

The Huntley Portfolio constitutes the largest solar-powered system at a school district in the State of Illinois, spanning three ground-mounted solar installations across three campuses in Huntley Community School District 158. Huntley has been one of the fastest-growing school districts in Illinois over the past decade, today serving 8,900 PreK-12 students and employing more than 1,400 staff members. This 5.5 MWdc portfolio of solar projects announced in January 2020 will offset 12.3 million pounds of carbon emissions.

“In our 100th year of existence, Huntley 158 is delighted to further our legacy of innovation by powering our operations with cost-effective, clean electricity from 15,100 solar panels,” said Dr. Scott Rowe, superintendent of Huntley 158. “We maintain among the lowest per-pupil spending rates in all of Northern Illinois, and we see the millions of dollars in utility bills saved thanks to these projects as an opportunity to reinvest taxpayer dollars directly into student education, allowing us to more effectively educate tomorrow’s leaders.”

About ForeFront Power

ForeFront Power is one of the fastest-growing solar and energy storage companies in the U.S., now ranked a top 10 player nationally in commercial solar development and asset management according to energy research firm Wood Mackenzie. The ForeFront Power team holds more than a decade of experience working together across nearly one gigawatt (GW) of renewable electricity, spanning more than 1,300 distributed generation and community solar projects.

Biden’s Vacillating on Fracking Could Put America at Risk, said Energy Industry Leader Fred Schneiderman at 20 Days to Save the USA

HICKORY, N.C., Oct. 28, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — A leading figure in the energy sector, Fred Schneiderman, speaking at the virtual conference 20 Days to Save the USA, called candidate Joe Biden’s back and forth position on fracking disconcerting, risky and irresponsible if not spelled out with clear timelines and planning.

“It’s highly unlikely for us to remain energy independent if we banned fracking,” said Schneiderman. “We all want to work toward the cleanest environment possible. The issue is what’s practical, timely, economic.”

Biden has gone back and forth whether he would ban fracking and his running mate Kamala Harris has signed on to the Green New Deal, said Schneiderman. “We don’t know if this is $9 trillion obligation or a $100 trillion obligation,” he said.

“We need an understanding of the true cost and a timeline that’s realistic for the American people to understand before they cast their ballot.” 

To destroy the oil and gas fossil fuel industry without a clear and concise plan would be irresponsible. It would risk our national security, stop coalitions around the world from coming together and send jobs of hard-working Americans overseas, he said.

“We’re honored to have an energy industry leader of the caliber of Fred Schneiderman speak at our event to spread his vision for America’s energy independence,” said Jerry McGlothlin, organizer of 20 Days to Save the USA.

“As technology makes the globe smaller, there’s no question our oil independence allows coalitions of nations to come together. 

“It’s highly unlikely we would remain oil independent if we ban fracking, or destroy the oil & gas industry. 

If the United States became carbon-neutral tomorrow, in no way does that preclude Russia and China from lessoning their carbon emissions. 

If only a portion of the planet adheres to carbon neutral, we have to have secure provisions in place for oversight for both China, Russia and the other countries. 

Unless we have a cohesive understanding of how we’re going to approach CO2 emissions, carbon-neutral and renewable energy sources to fulfill America’s and global needs, we all need to be in concert.

Prior to eliminating our oil & gas industry, and eliminating fracking, we need to have a uniform coalition amongst all countries if Vice President Biden’s plan is to be realistic, effective, practical and worthwhile.

Clean Energy Capitalist Shares Vision of a Green America

Melink Corporation CEO Releases “Fusion Capitalism” with ForbesBooksThis release is posted on behalf of ForbesBooks (operated by Advantage Media Group under license.)

NEW YORK, Oct. 27, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Steve Melink, CEO of Melink Corporation, today announced the publication of Fusion Capitalism: A Clean Energy Vision for Conservatives. The book is published with ForbesBooks, the exclusive business book publishing imprint of Forbes.

In Fusion Capitalism, clean energy expert Steve Melink shares his vision of a clean energy future. In Melink’s view, the economy, national security, public health, and a sustainable environment are all inextricably linked to the world’s energy infrastructure – making the transition to alternative energy one of the greatest opportunities of the 21st Century. Sustainability, he argues, must become a core national value because it is fundamental to the future of America’s success.

“If America is to remain a world leader, we must rise to the new challenges and opportunities of our time,” said Melink. “Our values should demand a fresh take on our love affair with fossil fuels and the costs, risks, and liabilities they impose on society. If we don’t commit to the equivalent of a moon race on clean energy, we will cede our power and influence over to those more willing to adapt.”

Melink shares the story of his awakening on climate change, inviting readers to educate themselves without prejudice. As a lifelong conservative, he sees American capitalism, innovation, and leadership as strategic advantages to make the world safer, healthier, and more prosperous for future generations. 

Fusion Capitalism: A Clean Energy Vision for Conservatives is available on Amazon starting today.

CleanSpark Announces Two New EV Contracts for GridFabric Software Subscriptions

SALT LAKE CITY, Oct. 28, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — CleanSpark, Inc. (Nasdaq: CLSK), a diversified software and services company today announced that it has received two contracts with EV (Electric Vehicle) companies for the first deployments of its ‘Plaid’ product, sold as a software subscription.  The contracts were executed through CleanSpark’s wholly-owned subsidiary GridFabric. GridFabric creates software solutions that help power utilities and IoT (Internet of Things) products that manage energy loads. Plaid specifically allows products of all types to add load shifting capabilities by translating load shifting protocols into their existing APIs.

CleanSpark Signs Multiple Software Service Contracts Within EV Sector

Prior to their acquisition by CleanSpark in August 2020, all of GridFabric’s OpenADR solutions had been sold under a perpetual licensing agreement, which represented a one-time sale. One of the stated goals at the time of acquisition for CleanSpark was to transition to a new cloud-based subscription option for the software which will generate long term, recurring revenue.

The benefits of transitioning to a SaaS model include improvements to the platform and implementing services, ease of maintenance, and enhanced cyber-security measures. Additionally, new features are being added that were previously only enabled with on-site updates or re-installation.

Zach Bradford, CEO of CleanSpark said of the contract, “GridFabric specializes in providing communication protocols to cleantech energy and EV companies, enabling them to participate in wholesale markets and communicate directly with utilities. Large, up-front fees for the protocols and communications certification process can be prohibitive for some companies. Under a subscription or SaaS model the customer is able to make ongoing monthly payments rather than a large lump sum. We expect this structure to attract more customers thereby creating an even stronger reoccurring revenue base.  Reducing the cost of entry into OpenADR certification should also accelerate market growth as a whole and increase pull-through demand for CleanSpark’s full suite of products industry-wide.” 

Mr. Bradford continued, “We intend to further enhance the SaaS offerings by developing a platform that will host the existing ‘Plaid’ and ‘Canvas’ products along with future product releases, such as protocols for IEEE 2030.5 within a single ecosystem.  These improvements will enhance a user’s ability to more rapidly integrate new protocols without needing to shift platforms. The monthly fees will also enable GridFabric and CleanSpark to rely on long-term subscription-based revenues to support new feature developments and platform expansion as a whole. SaaS is about ease of use and functionality, and we are excited to be able to offer this as an option to a larger number of potential customers.”

Parties interested in learning more about GridFabric products and services are encouraged to inquire by contacting the Company directly at info@cleanspark.com or visiting the Company’s website at www.gridfabric.io
