The thing to realize is that alternative energy is no longer a novelty. It is being driven these days, not so much by political agendas and idealism, but by powerful market forces.
Tom Randall for Bloomberg: Wind and solar are about to become unstoppable, natural gas and oil production are approaching their peak, and electric cars and batteries for the grid are waiting to take over. This is the world Donald Trump inherited as U.S. president. And yet his energy plan is to cut regulations to resuscitate the one sector that's never coming back: coal.
Clean energy actions saving companies $3.7 billion a year, cutting annual carbon pollution equivalent to 45 coal-fired power plants
One challenge for perovskite commercialization is stability, as the light-sensitive material in these devices dissolves in the presence of water and decomposes at high temperature.
When it comes to turbine failure, many maintenance engineers will look towards the gearbox, electrics, or rotary blade, but often the cause of failure can be one of the least expensive components in the system, and one which should be relatively easy to replace - the carbon brush, which is situated inside the generator.
Jess Shankleman , Brian Parkin , and Anna Hirtenstein for Bloomberg: Offshore wind turbines are about to become higher than the Eiffel Tower, allowing the industry to supply subsidy-free clean power to the grid on a massive scale for the first time.
Establishing a remote connection to a device allows users to program custom settings off-site. This is especially useful for systems that may need seasonal adjustments or need small adjustments to the custom settings for improved performance.
DSM launched this international competition last October with the goal of identifying the most promising solar and energy storage solutions that will contribute to the ultimate objective of producing 100% renewable energy for the entire planet.
American wind power added jobs over 9 times faster than the overall economy amid robust growth for another year, according to the American Wind Energy Association (AWEA), which released its 2016 U.S. Wind Industry Annual Market Report today at the Minnesota State Capitol.
Lucas Mearian for Computer World: Between 2015 and 2021, China is expected to install 40% of all worldwide wind energy and 36% of all solar
Wind gusts can increase wind speeds at rates and for durations just long enough for the energy to enter the system, but sometimes too fast for conventional pitch control systems to respond adequately.
Wall Street Pit: If the moon can be turned into a solar power station, our energy problems for sustainable and affordable electric power on a global scale will be solved.
Anindya Upadhyay for Bloomberg: The price of solar power in India fell to a record low of 3.15 rupees (5 U.S. cents) a kilowatt-hour in a competitive tender where French firm Engie SA's local arm won rights to develop 250 megawatts.
Renews: Eon is collaborating with Dutch company Ampyx Power to develop the latter's airborne wind energy system. The agreement aims to further the development of the system towards commercial deployment.
Solar Decathlon 2017 takes place in Denver, Colorado, at the 61st & Peña Station October 5-9 and October 12-15, 2017.

The Darfon G320 is the microinverter solution for today's high-power solar modules. The G320 handles 60- and 72-cell modules up to 350W DC and outputs up to 300W AC. The G320's 3-phase configuration accommodates the electrical distribution systems of most commercial buildings and to reduce, if not eliminate, the need for expensive transformers. The G320 comes in four voltage/phase configurations, so it can be installed in residential, commercial or utility applications.
