Regulations and Alternative Energy Industry Growth in the USA

The thing to realize is that alternative energy is no longer a novelty. It is being driven these days, not so much by political agendas and idealism, but by powerful market forces.

The Cheap Energy Revolution Is Here, and Coal Won't Cut It

Tom Randall for Bloomberg: Wind and solar are about to become unstoppable, natural gas and oil production are approaching their peak, and electric cars and batteries for the grid are waiting to take over. This is the world Donald Trump inherited as U.S. president. And yet his energy plan is to cut regulations to resuscitate the one sector that's never coming back: coal.

Report: Fortune 500 Companies accelerating Renewable Energy Efforts

Clean energy actions saving companies $3.7 billion a year, cutting annual carbon pollution equivalent to 45 coal-fired power plants

Are Perovskite Solar Cells in Our Future?

One challenge for perovskite commercialization is stability, as the light-sensitive material in these devices dissolves in the presence of water and decomposes at high temperature.

Brushing Up On Wind Turbine Maintenance Techniques

When it comes to turbine failure, many maintenance engineers will look towards the gearbox, electrics, or rotary blade, but often the cause of failure can be one of the least expensive components in the system, and one which should be relatively easy to replace - the carbon brush, which is situated inside the generator.

Gigantic Wind Turbines Signal Era of Subsidy-Free Green Power

Jess Shankleman , Brian Parkin , and Anna Hirtenstein for Bloomberg: Offshore wind turbines are about to become higher than the Eiffel Tower, allowing the industry to supply subsidy-free clean power to the grid on a massive scale for the first time.

Remote Monitoring of Off-grid Systems

Establishing a remote connection to a device allows users to program custom settings off-site. This is especially useful for systems that may need seasonal adjustments or need small adjustments to the custom settings for improved performance.

10 Finalists Compete for Energy Storage Funding at Bright Minds Challenge

DSM launched this international competition last October with the goal of identifying the most promising solar and energy storage solutions that will contribute to the ultimate objective of producing 100% renewable energy for the entire planet.

Wind adds jobs over 9 times faster than the overall economy

Unsubsidized wind and solar now the cheapest source for new electric power

Lucas Mearian for Computer World: Between 2015 and 2021, China is expected to install 40% of all worldwide wind energy and 36% of all solar

Power Regulation and Pitch Control

Wind gusts can increase wind speeds at rates and for durations just long enough for the energy to enter the system, but sometimes too fast for conventional pitch control systems to respond adequately.

Lunar-Based Solar Power Concept Could Solve The World's Energy Crisis

Wall Street Pit: If the moon can be turned into a solar power station, our energy problems for sustainable and affordable electric power on a global scale will be solved.

India Gets Record Low Bid to Build Solar Power, Minister Says

Anindya Upadhyay for Bloomberg: The price of solar power in India fell to a record low of 3.15 rupees (5 U.S. cents) a kilowatt-hour in a competitive tender where French firm Engie SA's local arm won rights to develop 250 megawatts.

Eon plots airborne wind route

Renews: Eon is collaborating with Dutch company Ampyx Power to develop the latter's airborne wind energy system. The agreement aims to further the development of the system towards commercial deployment.

3M™ Extreme Sealing Tape is a family of single coated, pressure sensitive adhesive tapes designed for difficult sealing applications. The backing on this tape is an ionomer film that is very tough yet flexible and abrasion resistant. The very soft and thick acrylic adhesive has excellent sealing properties and good outdoor durability. This single coated tape is designed to seal over an existing joint, seam, or penetration. The adhesive is designed to adhere well to the ionomer film so that overlapping tape joints can be made while maintaining a strong seal. 3M™ Extreme Sealing Tape - instant sealing that rolls on fast and looks good.
