1.7MW and 1.2MW installations will provide equivalent power for roughly 920 average households.
We have researchers here developing systems that should be able to convert more than 40% of the incoming sunlight to electricity (current panels are ~20% efficient). We are also working with research groups that can generate fuels and chemicals directly form sunlight, or from biomass, hopefully at an efficiency and cost that will replace conventional fossil fuel materials.
As the world continues to shift towards alternative energy sources, solar power will only continue to grow. Technologies will come and go and the astute product providers will continue to innovate.
They can be installed on building roofs or stack at variable heights without a mast and without foundation. They are 100% removable, 100% silent, 100% recyclable and maintenance free.
This case study is based on a real project in South West France. Results have been validated by an independent third party.
Similar to the S&P 500 Index, the Solar Stock Index is a market cap weighted composite index.
Wind Energy Timeline - From Persian Windmills Crushing Grains to Vesta's Wind Turbines Churning out 8 MW of Output
The global wind power market continues to rapidly expand in 2015. It is expected that global wind energy production will surpass 65 gigawatts by 2020!
Wind engineers are in heavy demand as Wind Energy becomes a stable source for alternative energy. Our research explored salary levels for Wind Engineers across the US and key employers.
Contractors can access high-resolution aerial imagery of properties - top-down and north, south, east and west views.
All of the top 10 states-with the exception of Florida-have a renewable portfolio standard in place. Most of those policies include a specific target for solar power or customer-sited generation.
How solar is reducing farm shop's CO2 emissions and overheads.
Solar energy is not the only sustainable resource Cool Idea! Award winners have harnessed thus far.
The minimal seismic anchors were installed at a rate of up to five per man hour. Combined, the arrays were spread over more than ten individual flat roofs.
Spray-on solar cells use nanotechnology. These cells are made using quantum dots, which is a nanocrystal composed of a semiconductor material that is small enough to take advantage of the laws of quantum mechanics.
The US and China will be in the 12-15 GW range in 2015 but the incremental growth will come from some of these emerging markets. We expect Mexico to be a 2 GW market by 2017, with South Africa also above the 1 GW mark by 2017. These two markets were stagnant in 2013-14, so the growth will be quite significant in the coming years.
