Interview with Neil Fromer, Executive Director, Caltech Resnick Sustainability Institute

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.

A Guide to Safely Installing Solar Panel Arrays to Any Property Type

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.

ALTER EOLIA - Stackable Mini Wind Turbines

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.

Improving Solar Tracker Performance With SMARTracking™

This case study is based on a real project in South West France. Results have been validated by an independent third party.

Solar Energy Index Outperforms S&P in Q1 2015

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 Salary & Employer Trends

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.

Using EagleView and Pictometry to Determine Solar Suitability and Prepare a Proposal

Contractors can access high-resolution aerial imagery of properties - top-down and north, south, east and west views.

California first state to generate more than 5% of electricity from utility-scale solar

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.

Simple Change Enables Darts Farm to Generate 1/3 of its Energy Needs Onsite

How solar is reducing farm shop's CO2 emissions and overheads.

Bringing Sustainable (and Cool) Ideas to Life

Solar energy is not the only sustainable resource Cool Idea! Award winners have harnessed thus far.

FastRack510 Installed at Hawaii's Largest Airports

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 - How do they Work?

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.

Deutsche Bank MD expects Cost of Solar to Drop Another 20-30% as 2020 Approaches

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.

More Signs of Solar Energy's Upside in India, Population 1.25 Billion

A sea change is gathering as the country contemplates embracing the promise of solar-powered electricity.
