Green growth: an operational tool (and GDP has had its day…)

Natural capital, made up of several elements that nature provides us with as the sustenance and basis of our society (soil, raw materials, water, clean air, …) has an economic value: today any growth model that ignores this by now shared knowledge can no longer work.

Optimizing Solar Plant Implementation

In this paper, we will focus on a theoretical study and its application to a concrete site. We will try to answer the question: How can we optimize the implementation of horizontal trackers on a solar plant?

Solar Powered Generators & Energy Efficiency, Go Hand In Hand

Energy Efficiency is all about optimal and responsible power use and this is also exactly how one gets the most energy out of their solar generator.

10 Questions to Ask Before Hiring a Solar Installer

Going solar should be a great experience - not a headache, and doing your homework upfront will give you something money can't buy - peace of mind.

Value of Solar Versus Fossil Fuels - Part 2

The value of solar power is being debated across the country by regulators, utility companies, and solar energy providers as distributed generation is increasing. This Energy and Policy Institute series consists of four separate reports summarizing recent developments, while providing recommendations for policy makers.

Energy Sources in a Disaster

Businesses need to invest in back-up renewable power systems to insure that they can continue working during and after a disaster. With such installations, businesses can prevent interruption losses caused by grid failure.

Unlikely Bedfellows: Mines That Run On Solar Or Wind Power

As mining companies continue to evaluate their power options in an era of higher diesel fuel and electricity costs, it is interesting to contemplate whether they could one day foresee operating in an environment more weighted towards renewables than conventional energy.

One With The Roof

Installers working on a tile roof must deal with particularly difficult challenges. Tile roofs are manufactured from many types of materials, including clay, zinc coated aluminum, concrete, wood and fiberglass, all of which come in a wide range of shapes and sizes. Installing solar panels on a tile roof takes more time than traditional asphalt shingle roofs and often requires additional framing.

6 Reasons Why Energy Efficiency Programs Fail

Amongst the numerous measures the world has taken to wean itself off the fossil fuels, only a few have been successful in making the businesses, homes and vehicles more energy efficient. Various psychological and financial barriers have kept governments and organizations from realizing the actual potential of energy efficiency programs.

LG Solar Unveils NeON R with Enhanced Aesthetics and Energy Savings

LG Solar Unveils NeON R with Enhanced Aesthetics and Energy Savings

The NeON R module features "Back Contact" cell technology delivering an entirely black panel that is aesthetically pleasing and energy efficient. The cell's seamless, surface blends perfectly into nearly all rooftop designs while the module's electrodes are positioned on the rear of the cell. Using LG's N-type cell structure, the panels produce 365W of energy, up to 7.3kWp, compared to 5.8kWp of the p-type cell. The module's new design minimizes LID, thereby delivering a longer lifespan and increased energy output.
