Capstone Turbine Corporation, the world's leading clean technology manufacturer of microturbine energy systems, announced today that it received an order to upgrade the Irvine Ranch Water District's Michelson Water Recycling Plant in Irvine, California with five C200 microturbines.
Regatta Solutions Inc., Capstone's distributor in California, secured the order, which is expected to be commissioned in early 2016. Once commissioned, the microturbines will cleanly and effectively operate on the biogas, or "green waste", produced on-site from digestion of biosolids.

With major backing from Google, California-based SolarCity has created a fund which is expected to finance $750 million in residential solar power generation projects.
Google has committed $300 million to the new fund-its largest renewable energy investment to date. The new fund is the largest of its kind ever created for residential solar power, and the second such collaboration between the two companies.
The Google deal is structured as a tax-equity transaction. Renewable energy projects are entitled to various tax benefits, including a credit for 30% of the installed cost of a solar system. However, companies, such as SolarCity, often can't use the credits and provide them instead to tax-equity investors such as Google.

Capstone Turbine Corporation, the world's leading clean technology manufacturer of microturbine energy systems, announced today that it received an order for two C1000 microturbines to upgrade a top Northern California brewery.
Regatta Solutions, Capstone's distributor in California, secured the order, which is expected to be commissioned later this year.
Two Capstone C1000 microturbines will replace the aging natural gas fuel cells currently powering the California brewery. Capstone microturbines can seamlessly meet changing facility demands and are flexible enough to allow for irregular daily load profiles, which effectively maximizes efficiency and reduces operating costs.

The iconic Eiffel Tower in Paris is embracing the full gamut of on-site power options as it seems to reduce its environmental impact. Urban Green Energy has been contracted to perform a major renovation and upgrade to the tower's first floor, with on-site wind power, solar panels and heat pumps to be deployed.
The Société d'Exploitation de la Tour Eiffel has given the go-ahead for UGE to install the first of which is a pair of VisionAIR5 wind turbines as part of the City of Paris Climate Plan.

Veolia and Alstom have signed a turnkey contract for the construction of a complete Flue Gas Desulphurization (FGD) plant, which will treat flue gases of 2 OP130 and 3 OP230 steam boilers of station numbers K1, K2, K3, K6, K9 at Veolia Energia Lodz SA coal-fueled combined heat & power plant (CHP 3). Completion of the desulphurization plant is due early 2017.
This order comes almost one year after Veolia and Alstom signed a contract for another desulphurization plant at Poznan. The plant at Lodz will use a six-module NIDTM of the same type as the four-module NIDTM being currently erected at Poznan. This will provide unique benefits in terms of operation and maintenance.

Citigroup plans to lend, invest and facilitate deals worth $100 billion by 2025 to support projects involving renewable power, energy efficiency and sustainable transportation opportunities, Chief Executive Officer Michael Corbat said in a speech in New York.
The investment is strategically based around a market for decentralised renewable energy in India predicted to be worth more than $150 million by 2018, while around 5 million residential solar systems are predicted to be sold in the country between last year and 2018, according to a new report.

Ireland's largest rooftop solar photovoltaic (PV) array has been unveiled at a manufacturing plant in Portadown, Co. Armagh. The 1.3 MW installation is set to generate 1.1 GW of electricity per year, enough to meet 30% of the site's daytime annual energy demand. Kingspan Energy, provider of fully-funded solar energy solutions for commercial and industrial buildings, designed and installed the system in Northern Ireland for Kingspan Environmental, a separate division of Kingspan Group. The installation consists of 4,844 modules in total, covering 18,000m2 of the building's roof. It took approximately 12 weeks to install.

Astrum Solar and The Tower Companies have commissioned a solar photovoltaic (PV) system on the roof of the Millennium Building (pictured), located at 1909 K Street NW in the US capital. This project is the first PV installation on a large, commercial, class-A office building in Washington DC, its backers say. Maryland-based Astrum designed and installed the 30 kW PV installation, which includes 109 modules with an estimated annual production of nearly 40 MWh.
