Renewable Energy Vital for First Nation and Remote Communities

Some First Nation communities have initiated solar and wind power and mini hydroelectric initiatives but more needs to be done to ensure that all remote communities have access to clean and affordable energy.

Cutting Consumption, Saving Lives: Fuel Cell Technology Proves Powerful in Demo

The Solid-Oxide Fuel Cell Tactical Electrical Power Unit is aimed at reducing the need to transport fuel around the battlefield, especially in dangerous theaters like Afghanistan, where enemies routinely target supply routes with homemade bombs.

IBM's Hybrid Renewable Energy Forecaster

The Hybrid Renewable Energy Forecasting (HyREF) solution combines big data analytics and weather modeling technology to accurately forecast the availability of wind power and solar energy.

ASIC Based Current Transducers

The implementation of ASIC based current transducers opens up functionality that the traditional discrete component transducers could never achieve.

Africa, the Untapped Potential for Clean Energy

Africa has a huge untapped potential for generating clean energy, including enough hydroelectric power from its seven major river systems to serve the entire continent's needs, as well as enormous potential for other energy sources such as solar, wind and geothermal.

Adding the battery back-up power option to existing grid-tied PV/solar systems

Using battery-based off-grid technology, a smarter type of "grid/hybrid" inverter technology is able to use PV, wind, hydro-electric and other renewable DC energy sources to keep the batteries charged and sell the excess to the grid, just like the grid-tied unit using the grid as its battery.

The Devil Is In the Details (And So Is the Solution)

Assessing the benefits and costs of distributed solar PV

United States Falling Behind in Green Energy Investments

American engineers pioneered green energy technology and production; resisting renewable energy mandates at this stage would be like striking out with the bases loaded with MLB scouts watching.

IREC Accredited as an American National Standards Developer

As the voice of the U.S. standards and conformity assessment system, ANSI provides a distinguishing mark of quality and credibility that tells educators that our standards development process has the most respected third-party approval.

Meeting Ongoing Payment Obligations for Wind Farms

One of the many challenges of operating a wind farm is meeting ongoing payments. The right technology can help wind companies meet this formidable challenge. That, in turn, helps to advance further development of wind power.

Solar Cell Efficiency Levels; What Does it Mean for Me?

The technology breakthroughs that are helping solar cells approach 50 percent efficiency levels are encouraging, but everyday applications are still years away.

Bye Bye FIT - Hello Self-Consumption

With an incentive programme now in place, the German PV industry looks to promote self-consumption, but what do installers and adopters need to know?

A Distributed Solar Utility

Unlike a traditional, large thermal power plant, where hundreds of megawatts or even gigawatts are generated in a single geographic location, our solar facilities will be distributed all across the country and eventually, around the world.

MicroPower Ready To Realise The Potential Of Thermoelectrics For Waste Heat Recovery

Thermoelectrics is a means of utilising thermal energy by converting it to electrical energy so that, when there is a heat differential between the opposing sides of certain semiconductor materials, the difference in temperatures causes the electrons in the material to move, creating an electric current.

VC Funding for Solar

VC funding is up $63 million this quarter from $126 million to $189 million. The total number of deals however went down to 19 from the 26
