The Growing Opportunity for U.S. Renewables

According to a recent Credit Suisse research report, there is great opportunity in the U.S. for renewables to gain more market share thanks to the noteworthy drop in wind and solar costs. This decrease could give renewables a chance to be more cost-competitive with conventional power generation sources. As the economics of re...


Advanced Metering and Its Effects on Electricity Tracking

Each year since 2006, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) has been publishing reports examining demand response and advanced metering in the United States. According to the latest report (published in December 2014), demand response is when electricity usage changes from the norm for demand-side resources. This can b...


The Electric Grid: Benefits of Advanced Energy Storage

To help the United States better manage projected energy needs, the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) 2013 “Grid Energy Storage” report suggests the electric system should be adjusted for efficiency. One such change is increasing the use of renewable energy sources and improving non-renewable processes. Another option is u...


Why a Slewing Drive is an All-in-One Solution

Many industrial applications today require a very high degree of precision - both to achieve operational efficiency and to provide reliable, cost effective maintainability over the long term. When designing a modern solar tracking or satellite dish system, this ability to reliably focus on a single fine point is absolutely cruci...


Understanding the Importance of the Zero-Backlash Drive

Backlash – the existing clearance gaps between gear teeth fits, also called deadband – is a very common and often valuable factor in the designs of gear and drive systems. Deliberately oversizing the space between gear teeth allows room for applying lubrication to the gearbox and can help accommodate the stresses of thermal ...
