Solar Austin Happy Hour: Austin Local Solar Update

Solar Austin Happy Hour: Austin Local Solar Update

What is Austin Energy doing locally when it comes to solar? Our city-owned utility has existing goals to reach 110 MW of local solar by 2020 and 200 MW by 2025. Austin Energy has several programs to meet these goals. Recently, Austin Energy made exciting announcements, including the completion of the new 2.5 MW La Loma community solar project, a new low-income solar program powered by La Loma, and the pilot for solar available to multifamily dwellings and affordable housing, called Shared Solar. Significant changes are also being made to the residential solar incentive program.

With the completion of La Loma, Austin Energy has expanded its community solar program to 400 more residential customers. Although there is only room left on the waitlist at the regular rate, the half set aside for the Customer Assistance Program (CAP) participants (low-income customers) is still open. CAP customers can now reduce their bill by signing up for the community solar program. Shared Solar will allow residents in a multifamily dwelling to receive a prorated portion of the value of solar credit from a single installation.

Solar Austin is excited to announce Danielle Murray, Austin Energy’s Solar Program Manager, as our March Happy Hour speaker! She will provide an update on all things local solar at Austin Energy: on the La Loma Community Solar project, the low-income solar program, Shared Solar, the upcoming changes to the residential solar incentive program, and progress toward Austin’s local solar and other renewable energy goals.

Danielle Murray is Austin Energy's Manager of Solar Energy Services, overseeing the utility’s renewable energy offerings and local solar programs. These include the wind-based GreenChoice program, Community Solar program, residential and commercial solar incentive programs, solar inspections, and the Value of Solar rates. Previously, Danielle was the Renewable Program Manager for the City and County of San Francisco, where she led efforts to develop the local solar market, reduce soft costs, and implement innovative financing mechanisms; coordinated wind, wave, and district energy research and development; and served as chair of the Mayor’s Renewable Energy Task Force. Prior to that, she worked for the City of Toronto’s Energy Office, where she designed and implemented the Toronto Neighborhoods Initiative which provided grants and low-interest loans to homeowners to install solar water heating systems and other energy efficiency improvements.

We hope you will join us Tuesday, March 27th for this update on Austin Energy’s solar programs. There's lots of change happening right now, and this will be a great chance to ask your questions.

State Parking Garages can be found next to, behind and across from Scholz Garten. San Jacinto Blvd., 15th, 16th, 17th, 18th, and Trinity have parking garage entrances.

Although our happy hours are free and open to all, we hope you'll consider donating to Solar Austin. Help us keep solar energy growing in the Austin area. You can purchase a ticket to the happy hour or go to our website, www.solaraustin.org, to donate. You will avoid fees by going to our website.

Please note that space for this exclusive event is limited. The GACC South reserves the right to review your registration and allow participation at their discretion.

The energy transition (“Energiewende”) is a core project and guiding vision of German policy. One of the main targets of the energy transformation is to achieve a share of at least 35% of the electricity consumed in Germany to be covered by renewables by 2020 combined with successful system integration with highest reliability worldwide and numerous actions to increase energy efficiency. With similar energy transition projects taking place in various places around the world, there are significant opportunities for mutual learning and for developing synergies with other countries and regions.

The event aims to deepen Germany’s policy dialogue with the United States and especially with Texas as a leading state undergoing a transformative change in its electricity market in North America. Stakeholders such as energy policy makers and system operators will have the opportunity to discuss common challenges, as well as exchange experiences and best practices with policies designed to address these issues. The bilateral dialogue will consist of a full day workshop followed by a networking reception and a dinner, during which the participants will have the opportunity to actively engage in the discussion.

The event is organized by the German American Chamber of Commerce of the Southern U.S., Inc. (GACC South) together with adelphi consult on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy.

Next Generation Photovoltaics Lecture Series:

Organic Photovoltaics: Today and Tomorrow

Nicholas J. DeWeerd

Ph.D. Candidate, Colorado State University Strauss-Boltalina Research Group Department of Chemistry

Webinar: Tuesday, February 20, 4:00 – 5:00 p.m.

Organic photovoltaics (OPV) are a rapidly developing area of research at the academic level with new insights into the generation and propagation of charges as well as the functional requirements for designing ideal morphologies for high efficiency devices. Simultaneously, industry advances have allowed OPV to make it to market as they fill demand in the photovoltaic market for cheap, flexible, and versatile solar cells. Future advances in the OPV field will focus on overcoming hurdles associated with mass production of OPV devices such as increasing efficiency, expanding optimization protocols, improving device fabrication techniques, and developing systems with minimal post fabrication optimization to further lower manufacturing costs. These points will be discussed in the context of current information available and the future outlook for this technology.

The lecture is part of the Next Generation Photovolatics series.

The University of Texas at Austin, Texas A&M University and Colorado State University are partners in supporting the Center for Next Generation Photovoltaics, a part of the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF) Industry/University Cooperative Research Centers (I/UCRC) program.

Solar Austin Happy Hour: Innovation in Solar Technology

These are exciting times in the energy world.  Utility-scale solar is cheaper than new conventional power plants—and sometimes even cheaper than operating existing coal and gas plants. Solar and wind energy continue to expand and become even more economic. There’s lots of buzz about energy storage and some utilities are starting to invest in it.  But what innovations are taking place in research laboratories, and what technology may soon leave these research labs and head to commercial use?

Several Central Texas institutions are part of the Center for Next Generation Photovoltaics—where industry and thought leaders are answering these questions. Solar Austin is excited to kick off 2018, a year certain to be filled with even more innovation in renewable energy, with a happy hour talk by Dr. Taylor Harvey from the Center and TAMU-Central Texas on innovation in solar technology. Dr. Harvey will share his outlook on the future of solar and discuss research into developing printed solar cells on paper and plastic substrates. He will also share some of his experiences running a printed solar startup based here in Austin.

Tuesday, January 23rd, 5:30 – 8:00 p.m.
Scholz Garten, 1607 San Jacinto Blvd
RSVP here.


unnamed-4.jpg

Dr. Harvey is the Chancellor’s Assistant Professor of Research at Texas A&M University—Central Texas. His primary area of research is solar energy with a focus on new solar materials (such as solar paints) and solar microsystems. He is the co-author of nine peer-reviewed articles and two patents. Before starting his current position, Dr. Harvey co-founded and led Lucelo Technologies, a printed solar start-up. Dr. Harvey received his PhD from the University of Texas at Austin in 2014 after spending four years as a reservoir engineer in the traditional energy industry.

We hope you will join us Tuesday, January 23rd for this fascinating discussion!

NEW WORKSHOP: Power Plays: Coal and Geothermal: A Path Forward

Coal and Geothermal: A Path Forward

Achieving Site Sustainability for Coal-fired Power Plants

January 10, 2018 A workshop preceding the Power Plays Conference

WHY Numerous U.S. coal power plant sites have recently or will soon be shut down, and many are near the end of their economic useful life. Rather than close these plants altogether, impacting base-load capacity and employment, this workshop provides a path forward to dramatically lowering emissions while still providing base-load power by utilizing geothermal energy at the same sites. 

WHAT Determine method to transition coal fired power generation plants to geothermal power plants, leveraging existing infrastructure including permits, grid connectivity, skilled workforce, physical footprint, an existing customer base, etc. Suitable sites are believed to exist at numerous coal plants around the country and even outside of the U.S.

HOW Certain coal plants are located within sedimentary basins where oil and gas industry activity has provided a greater understanding of the heat resources below them. To reach and extract the usable heat as a resource will require a series of Enhanced Geothermal System (EGS) production and injection wells at each coal plant site to generate enough power to replace the coal fired generation. This is not a trivial effort in terms of time or money, so the idea is to add the geothermal capacity in stages as wells are brought online. The power plant could retain their income stream and maintain their commitments to deliver a given capacity as they initially provide power consisting of both coal and geothermal generation, transitioning to all geothermal by the end. 

WHO Coal plant and industrial site owners and operators, experienced subsurface and surface geothermal well and heat transfer engineers, key technology and service companies, finance and investment bankers, and regulatory agency personnel are invited to apply. Accepted participants will be expected to ‘roll up their sleeves’ and help work out approaches for moving coal and/or industrial sites to geothermal plant conversion from the drawing board, through non-subsidized financing, to completed projects. 

WHEN AND WHERE The full day workshop is Wednesday, January 10, 2018 on SMU’s Campus in Dallas, Texas. The workshop registration fee of $795 includes complimentary access to the Power Plays conference, which begins the evening of January 10th, and concludes late afternoon on Thursday, January 11, 2018.
