First Solar to Profit If Trump Slaps Tariffs on Panel Imports

Storage News - RenewableEnergyWorld.com - Mié, 08/16/2017 - 00:39

First Solar Inc. is standing on the sidelines of a trade dispute that could give its products a significant leg up.

The U.S. International Trade Commission held a hearing on Tuesday regarding the request by Suniva for the U.S. to impose tariffs on imported solar panels. The petition alleges China, which accounts for more than 80 percent of global solar panel production, gives manufacturers unfair government support.  

The commission is expected to make a decision next month, and a finding of harm could lead President Trump to impose duties as early as November.

Do You have a Favorite Insurance? For Pharma, it May be Microgrids

Storage News - RenewableEnergyWorld.com - Vie, 08/11/2017 - 15:41

A large pharma company recently came to me to discuss energy supply and its need for guaranteed electricity.  The company had to take out expensive insurance to cover a power failure event that could interrupt their production line. Why is this a big deal? We’ve all lost refrigeration for a few hours.

After talking with the company, it became clear that a power loss lasting only 1 minute can result in a major economic hit because much of the pharmaceuticals are made in large batches to amortize the costs, and increase production.  With a power loss, it’s not just a temporary interruption, it’s a lost batch.  And the market value of a lost batch can easily reach millions of dollars.
