Because the face of solar panels are fabricated from glass, there's no surface area/friction for snow to grip onto, and nothing to stop it from building up, eventually releasing in an avalanche manner, in the form of what we Alpine-ites like to refer to as a solavalanche.
Benjamin Storrow for Scientific American: Massachusetts, New York, New Jersey and Maryland are all eyeing up manufacturing and maintenance businesses that would support wind energy
Bobby Magill for Scientific American: 10 percent of electricity generated in the country in March came from these renewables
The Harbor Smart Battery provides clean energy storage with revolutionary simplicity and automated performance.
California leads the United States in capacity of several categories: hydroelectric pumped storage, geothermal, landfill gas, and batteries. Florida leads the country in capacity of municipal solid waste and other waste biomass generators.
The Innovation Incubator (IN2) is now a $30 million program supporting a technology incubator and provides a platform to support early-stage clean tech startup companies to overcome market gaps by providing access to both technical assistance and project support funding.
David J. Unger for Midwest Energy News: Batteries - whether they're powering a smartphone or storing energy on the grid - take a beating.
Conor Ryan for Energy Storage News: A first prototype of the storage system is expected to be developed later in 2017, with both companies planning to secure a commercial pilot plant during 2018.
Perhaps one of the primary reasons for district heating systems not being as efficient as they should be is due to a lack of access to data. Effectively, designers specify systems without using any operational data to help inform their decisions.
Darfon will be introducing 5 new products this year: H5000, H100, H200, G640 and ComBox. The H5000, our latest hybrid inverter, converts DC power from the PV modules or batteries into AC. Based upon programmed priorities easily set up by the installer, batteries are charged from either the PV array or grid.
Biofuels International: Dubois argued that biofuels should be seen as a tool for responsible investment in agriculture and rural development.
Leanna Garfield for Business Insider: Not considering the multi-billion-dollar construction cost of the wall itself, the solar array installation could cost between $1.4 billion and $4.2 billion
Joshua S Hill for CleanTechnica: The United States had its largest ever quarter for energy storage deployment this year, deploying 234 megawatt-hours worth of energy storage across the first quarter of the year.
Utility-scale solar prices fall below $1/watt for first time; capacity expected to triple over next five years.
With the market growing so rapidly, consumers need to understand which product best suits their household's energy needs. Again, the key is starting with a customer's energy usage and determining how they will use an energy storage system.
