Making a building more sustainable while completing the retrofit could attract more higher-paying tenants, which would cause a greater appreciation by the time the owners plan to sell. Properties with Energy Star certification have sold for 2-5% more than buildings without such certification.
How solar is reducing farm shop's CO2 emissions and overheads.
As fuel cells continue to increase sales and installations in existing markets and prove themselves in others, companies in synergistic energy technology sectors will hopefully consider joining FCHEA to become more involved in the industry.
Solar energy is not the only sustainable resource Cool Idea! Award winners have harnessed thus far.
A South Australian solar energy company is in talks with 'major developers' to build energy self-reliant housing estates which don't need to be connected to the main electricity grid.
Rooftop Solar System at DuPont R&D Center Serves as Model for Distributed Solar Power Systems in China
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.
The Environmental Governance approach of Osaka is exemplary for the developing Asian cities who are trying to balance development and sustainability.
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.
A reflective surface reduces smog by reflecting heat back into the atmosphere. Not only is the smog reduced, but more importantly, energy costs are lowered in big cities.
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.
The goal of this program is to increase the efficiency of Array Technologies' commercial sales process while providing customers with access to the highest quality turnkey solar services with Array Technologies' tracking systems.
A sea change is gathering as the country contemplates embracing the promise of solar-powered electricity.
The Department of Energy is investing in renewable energy through the Wave Energy Prize and is offering an opportunity for both seed funding and prize purses totaling more than $1 million for qualified prize participants.
Fossil-fuel industries are boom and bust. Renewables don't have to be.

Iron Edison's Lithium Iron battery is for solar PV energy storage and compatible with 12-volt, 24-volt and 48-volt battery-based inverters. Available in a wide range of residential storage capacities, custom high-voltage models are also available for commercial applications like peak load shaving and UPS. Iron Edison's battery uses Lithium Iron Phosphate cells (LiFePO4), known to be the safest type within the lithium-ion family. Iron Edison's battery includes an integrated Battery Management System and DC disconnect for maximum safety. All components are housed inside a steel enclosure with removable lid.
