RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT

SUNTRAP™ TECHNOLOGY

CONCENTRATED SOLAR POWER WITH STORAGE

As grid penetration by wind and solar PV approaches 30%, their intermittency and time of peak production creates problems for grid stability and load management. Concentrated Solar Power with storage constitutes the most widely recognized dispatchable solution for electricity generation.

CSP with thermal storage also offers the best dispatchable price for generating electricity. CSP technology can also be used in other application such as process heat and desalination. The global CSP market is continuing to grow with an estimated addressable system market of ~ $1Bn/yr by the year 2020.

SNOWSHEDDER™ TECHNOLOGY

SNOWSHEDDER

This patented device hastens snow sliding off solar arrays, and thereby increases the production of solar energy in the winter months. The passive device attaches to the panel and is one of those simple “why didn’t I think of that” types of innovation.

While the device is simple, significant research and testing went into refining the product to achieve a 2% to 4% increase in annual production output. Moreover, this production boost comes during times when overall solar generation is decreasing.

After two years of testing in a variety of locations and microclimates, and upon completion of a United States Department of Energy commercialization grant, we are excited to deploy this proprietary technology to PV arrays across Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine.

SNOW SHEDDING TECHNOLOGY

EZ-PV METAMODULE™

Applying well-honed principles of assembly manufacturing, the EZ-PV MetaModules™ are mechanically and electrically built in an optimized facility.  The completed MetaModules are tested before being brought on-site. The installation is rapidly completed by a lean crew using mechanical assistance as a stream. Norwich Solar Technologies EZ-PV MetaModules are delivered on-site on a just-in-time basis.
