I didn't think so. It actually has an abbreviation; it's call CFD. It is a discipline in mechanical and aerospace engineering that allows engineers to simulate, understand and vis...

BY MICHAEL HIBSHMAN In my last post, I highlighted a few reasons why energy storage is critical to the future of solar PV, and how each technology complements the other. While combining solar PV with energy storage creates a powerful, non-zero sum ecosystem, there are a few limitations of the resulting system that are best addressed by energy management technology. To understand ...

BY MICHAEL HIBSHMAN These days, it seems like solar PV can't grow fast enough. As a result of improving economics, increasing consumer preference, green building standards, and government incentives, solar PV is finally hitting its stride. 2019 has been a breakout year for solar PV both in the US and globally, and it seems like the trend will only continue.  With all of this growth in sol...
