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.
Thomas Burton for Energy Technology Matters: A team of researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) published a paper last week in the journal Nature Energy that described how they built a working solar thermophotovoltaic device (STPV) that enables solar cells to break through a theoretically predicted ceiling on how much sunlight they can convert into electricity. With this revolutionary new technology, the researchers show the potential of how solar panels can generate even more energy than theoretically determined by harnessing some of the panels’ waste. To learn more about the STPV technology, read on! Since 1961, the Shockley-Queisser Limit established an absolute theoretical limit on traditional solar cell efficiency regarding energy conversion. A single-layer of silicon cells—the type of cells most widely used in today’s solar panels—has an upper limit of 32 percent. But currently, researchers are studying ways to increase this overall efficiency by using multiple layers of cells or converting the sunlight first to heat before generating electrical power. This latter method uses devices called STPVs, which the MIT team used in their study. Cont'd...

Hands-On STEM Learning Program Has Attracted More Than 1100 Students Over Last 5 Years
The battery energy storage system (BESS) and 4.2 MW solar photovoltaic (PV) systems are installed in the service territory of the Village of Minster.
Solar Energy has just entered the 21st century.
The 13th five-year National Development Plan initiated by the National Energy Administration (NEA) for the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) set the goal to install Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) plants with a total capacity of 10 Gigawatt by 2020 in China.
Intersolar - SMART RENEWABLE ENERGY FORUM: INTELLIGENTLY CONNECTING RENEWABLE ENERGIES AND STORAGE SYSTEMS
Lots of sunshine, strong winds: The conditions in spring are ideal for renewable energies. Almost too ideal, as the Pentecost weekend 2016 demonstrated. An oversupply in the grid feed-in from solar and wind energy led at times to negative energy prices. Situations such as this make it clear that setting up an intelligent energy system, which optimally connects and controls energy producers, storage systems, consumers and grids, is essential for the energy supply of the future.

You haven't installed a tile mount that is easier to install than the Solar Tile Mount manufactured by TRA Snow and Sun. Solar Tile Mount is used on all tile roof profiles: flat, mid, and high. It is made in the USA of aluminum alloy for strength and excellent corrosion resistance. Solar Tile Mount is built to allow more ease in installation with more rise from the tile surface to the rail for better air flow below panels. The adjustable base is longer than most allowing attachment 6" to the left or right to have the bracket in the base of the pan of the tile and still fasten to the rafter. Solar Tile Mount is adjustable for counter batten systems from ¾" to 3". The horizontal rail is directly above base fasteners giving greater uplift resistance than any other system. For superior waterproofing apply TRA Snow and Sun's butyl backed VersaFlash aluminum flashing. No tile flashing is needed on top of the tile for greater labor and material cost savings.
