A photovoltaic system (or PV system) is a system which uses one or more solar panels to convert sunlight into electricity. It consists of multiple components, including the photovoltaic modules, mechanical and electrical connections and mountings and means of regulating and/or modifying the electrical output.
The New Generation Power team has installed and is currently developing over 200 MW of solar in 19 countries worldwide. The projects range in size from 2 kW residential systems to 62 MW utility-scale solar farms and large commercial installations. Our team is currently building a 62 MW, 3 site PPA project for the Illinois Power Agency and Ameren utility in Rockford, Illinois.
Solar Thermal: Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) system using Parabolic Solar Trough (PST) with reflective surfaces tracks the Sun during daylight hours, concentrating solar incidence to the Heat Receiver Pipe (HRP) located at the focal axes of the PST. All existing PST systems use synthetic oil as Heat Transfer Fluid (HTF) to transfer this concentrated solar heat to a central heat exchanger station to generate steam to run steam turbines and generate electricity.
Biomass: New Generation Biomass LLC, a subsidiary of NGP, constructs Biomass electrical generating facilities utilizing the latest technology. Together with our strategic partners, we construct and operate biomass facilities to furnish green energy solutions that meet the needs of customers and satisfy renewable portfolio standards. We work closely with local and regional utilities to expand the volume of green energy for residential, commercial and industrial customers. Headquartered in Chicago, Illinois, we work in partnership with a number of the leading renewable energy developers and product manufacturers in the world.
Waste to Energy: Waste energy is ideal to firstly reduce dealing with the garbage disposal to reduce garbage collection and landfills and secondly to meet the demand of the peak energy supply. Every year there is millions of tones of solid waste and liquid waste generated around the globe. The problems caused by solid and liquid wastes can be significantly alleviated through the adoption of environment-friendly waste-to-energy technologies that will allow treatment and processing of wastes before their disposal. New Generation Biomass utilizes state of the art technology as well as improvements on older technologies. In all cases, we create facilities that are clean, safe and cost effective.
Distribution: This content is coming soon from the NGP team. We appreciate your patience as we have designed NGP something special and are in the middle of deployment.
Wind: As developers and manufacturers of wind turbines, we concentrate on our core competencies. In addition to the overall technical design, our know-how also lies in the development of rotor blades with a length of up to 45 metres and in the integrated electrical and control technology for wind turbines. These are the driving factors behind the development of more efficient and thus more economical machines – which is to the advantage of the environment and of our customers.
Hydro: Our focus is on developing projects that are low-cost, high value and low impact. We provide design, engineering, equipment procurement and financing for ongoing projects. Innovative technologies are likely to enhance significantly the development of low head dams in the U.S. and elsewhere. These include proprietary intake structures and turbine design for capturing the hydrokinetic energy at existing dams. The hydrokinetic energy of water flowing over existing lowhead dams is seldom captured. Almost all existing dams with hydropower capability stop the water behind the dam, thus losing the kinetic energy of the flowing water.
For the site selection we will be using Jones Lang LaSalle's iLocate tool to identify land that will optimize the best solar irradiation with the most cost effective land.
iLocate combines databases of information about irradiation levels, available land, local rooftop sizes, interconnection points, transmission/distribution lines, substations, and water with satellite technology and advanced imaging. The system even provides owners names/contact information.
Examples of these types of sites include (but are not limited to):
- FUDS (Formerly Utilized defense Sites)
- DERP (Defense Environmental restoration Program)
- Brownfields sites
- NPL Superfund sites
- RCRA properties
