      Ideal Power Introduces New SunDial Solar PV String Inverter

      AUSTIN, TX-- May 2, 2016 - Ideal Power Inc. (NASDAQ: IPWR), a developer of innovative power conversion technologies, introduced its new SunDial™ solar photovoltaic (PV) string inverter which includes an optional bi-directional 3rd port for direct integration of solar with energy storage during initial installation or any time in the future. The SunDial™ is a compact, efficient, and fully isolated PV string inverter with an integrated PV combiner, disconnects, and a built-in Maximum Power Point Tracker (MPPT). It also features an optional, low cost "plug and play" bi-directional DC port kit. This new "solar first, storage ready" design is the only commercial string inverter available with a field-upgradable, bi-directional energy storage port, making the system market ready today for the solar + storage market.

      Will SolarCity Become an Energy Storage Power Player?

      SolarCity (NASDAQ:SCTY) and Tesla Motors (NASDAQ:TSLA) are natural partners, especially because Elon Musk happens to be the biggest shareholder of both companies. But there's also another natural tie between the companies: SolarCity's effort to democratize energy production has a growing need for Tesla Motors' ability to store energy. And it was recently uncovered by GTM Research that SolarCity has grand plans for Tesla Motors batteries in 2016.

      Aquion to Install Storage for Microgrid at California Winery and Farm

      Microgrids were once mainly used to ensure redundancy for critical operations such as police headquarters and hospitals, but as they become more prevalent, their uses are also expanding as storage capability is added to the systems. A report from GTM Research projects that microgrid capacity in the United States will rise 127% by 2020 to more than 2.8 GW from 1.3 GW at the end of 2015.For some, the attraction of a microgrid is its ability not only to provide resiliency, but to reduce consumption of electric power produced by conventional fossil fuel technology.
