Investing in PV Solar Energy

I see great potential in the nano technology area. It is my feeling that if there is a huge blockbuster technology that is going to emerge and "take over" the PV industry, I feel that it will somehow involve breakthroughs and application of nano technology to the area of photovoltaics.

Environmental Policy May Contain Traces of Nuts

Should we choose to have 20% of our power production ideologically clean, or 80% of our electricity needs atmospherically clean? The answer is: we should do both.

Hydrogen stations are springing up everywhere!

Spring has been a busy period for hydrogen fueling stations, with five stations recently opening worldwide.

Renewable Energy Markets Worldwide 2015 Driven by Climate Change

Nanotechnology is undoubtedly one of the key technologies which will influence energy efficiency

Will the UK House Building Industry rise to the Carbon Challenge?

The Government recently announced the launch of their "Carbon Challenge" which aims to create five zero carbon or near carbon developments throughout the UK in order to provide working examples to the building industry. The idea is to encourage house builders to implement good building practices in order to meet the 2016 CO2 emissions targets.

China's Solar Energy Industry: Polysilicon 2007-2011

China's 2005 Renewable Energy Law called for the country to increase its renewable energy consumption to 10 percent of the total by 2020. Without sufficient supply of domestic polysilicon, this goal, as well as solar cell export goals, will be difficult to meet.

Next Generation of PV is emerging NOW!

I think the PV industry will TRIPLE in size in the next 4 years and I think the Thin Film segment of the PV industry will increase over TEN FOLD in the next 4 years.

On Energy Supply, Human Population, Earth's Climate, and Financial Prosperity

By grouping appropriate items together in summary fashion, we see that 48% of energy is used in the home, in one form or another. The next big use is the 44% that is used at work in various forms. Finally, a final 8% is used in transport.

Photovoltaic Cost Comparisons

It is unimaginable to me that a technologically advanced civilization would readily commit environmental and economic suicide when we have most of the necessary clean tech tools already developed. Not effectively leveling this cost comparison playing field now is one step closer to that potential unimaginable outcome.

Solar market boom in California; Silicon Valley centre of new PV industry?

It can be concluded that the USA is on its way back to the frontline of the global PV industry and market developments. With new upcoming markets not only in California, but also in other US states and countries like Spain, Italy and Greece, a further growth of the global PV market of at least 30% per year for the coming years seems likely

Worried about the Energy Crisis?

I am no longer worried. Now that I understand there is no energy crisis, no ingenuity crisis, only the need for well-meaning bureaucracies to adapt policies to rapidly changing assumptions, I am terrified.

Book - Future Energy

Indeed, this new and highly competitive oil industry should provide investors with dozens of new companies, any one of which could become the energy industry's equivalent of Microsoft or Dell or Apple.

Renewable Energy a must for Australia

This is a summary of a speech by Dr Herman Scheer at the University of NSW in March 2006. Dr Scheer, as a member of the German parliament was instrumental in shaping Germany's renewable energy policies.

Solar: The No-Risk Path to Wealth Creation

While all investments pose some degree of risk, the return on a solar energy system is about as safe and predictable as, well, the rising sun. Fortunately for the Earth and its varied inhabitants, the center of our solar system is situated well beyond the reach of humanity's capacity to tamper with a good thing.

New Players in the Hydrogen Game

By setting demanding goals, these pioneering governments are a forging a path toward the hydrogen economy. Hopefully others will take note and follow their lead.

GreenFasten™ solar panel roof mount hardware, watertight, USA made

GreenFasten™ solar panel roof mount hardware, watertight, USA made

The GreenFasten™ - GF1 system utilizes the patented watertight technology EcoFasten Solar® is known for. The flashing is fit with our EPDM rubber bushing and when used with a compatible EcoFasten Solar compression bracket (milled with countersink), a watertight seal is created, which protects the integrity of the roof. Requiring just a single fastener (lag bolt or self-drilling), GreenFasten provides the fastest install in the industry and will not void roofing manufacturer's warranties. Backed by IAPMO certification, GreenFasten delivers a mounting solution for all new or existing (retrofit) composition shingle roofs, and is the most cost-effective solution available. Like all of the solar roof mount solutions in our line of products, GreenFasten is made in the USA using recycled materials.
