The lessons of Solar Impulse are clear: by pushing the boundaries of technology, and refusing to accept limits, technological or psychological, we can run the world without consuming the earth, and reach heights we never believed were possible.
This technique is projected to reduce solar panel manufacturing costs by upwards of 60% compared to industry standards, while making them 25% more efficient, and resulting in a very cost-effective source of energy.
Since clouds, atmosphere and nighttime are absent in space, satellite-based solar panels would be able to capture and transmit substantially more energy than terrestrial solar panels.
Investment slowdowns in China and Japan, as well as further reduction in the cost of solar, mean 2016 investment will fall well short of 2015's upwardly revised $348.5bn
Investors will need to understand the differences between on-grid and off-grid solar. And a long term proof of bankability of the off-grid solar sector is still needed.
Ultimately, the use of forecasting allowed the plant operator to send commitments in line with what is required by the grid operator.
Wind turbine gearboxes are challenging to maintain because they are often in remote locations, at elevated heights, and operating under extreme conditions.
Through the consensus-based roadmapping process, the SMART Wind Consortium has linked together more than 2 dozen distributed wind energy equipment manufacturers
With Skilled Volunteers and a High-Performing Kyocera Solar Array, Fallbrook Seventh-day Adventist Church Slashes Energy Costs
The 30kW grid-tie system uses 126 Kyocera solar modules and is currently supplying more power to the grid than the church consumes.
This year's edition of BNEF's long-term forecast sees $11.4 trillion investment in global power generation capacity over 25 years, with electric vehicles boosting electricity demand by 8% in 2040.
The broad range of wind energy project sizes and locations in Egypt demonstrates the increasing importance of the country as a renewable energy producer, supplier, modular manufacturer, skills trainer and investment opportunity.
Since they have to be lit up at night, the advantages of using independent solar modules and inbuilt battery have many advantages.
The wind farm is playing a key role in helping Pantex achieve President Obama's directive that the federal government lead the way in clean energy and energy efficiency, with his Administration's goal for the federal government to get 20% of its electricity from renewable resources by 2020.
The race, sponsored by the Energy Department, its National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), the Alliance for Sustainable Energy, Jeffco Public Schools, and Dakota Ridge High School, is designed to boost interest in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) fields.
New York State resident Matt Holleran refuses to be one of the many Americans paying one third of their income on housing. For that reason, he's moving off-the-grid and into his very own micro-house in the Southern Adirondacks.
