Solar Sector Shines on Energy Storage

There is no doubt that PV is becoming a primary source of energy but only when integrated with long duration energy storage.

Solar Power International 2013 Tradeshow Report

Here we have compiled a report with several product releases from this years show.

High Altitude Wind Energy

Technologies to harness high-altitude winds have been around for several decades now but are still in the planning or prototype stage. When these systems are placed into use, the cost of high-altitude wind energy will range from two to four cents per kilowatt hour.

Ceramics Provide High Voltage Insulation For Unique Gas Plasma Engine

Electric propulsion satellites part of new and greener space technology.

Solar Power International - Some Perspectives

We had a chance to talk to some of the folks representing their companies at the show to find out why they go and what they do.

Thin Layers With A Big Impact

How Cascading Arc Plasma Coatings Help Deliver the Highest Efficiency

The Power to Save Lives

Like all of the New Jersey National Guard's solar power projects, this project is under the State of New Jersey's Solar Renewable Energy Certificate Program. Under this program, solar system owners that generate over 1,000 kilowatts of electricity per year that's connected to the public power grid, receive certificates.

Real Examples Renewable Energy Shows Promise Now!

A gentlemen doing his own start up in green asked me to explain clearly what are some examples how going renewable is the business trend of the markets and the government.

Are Operators Ready to Meet the Alternative Energy Risks?

By investing in the right risk management solutions, owners and operators can reduce their potential long-term costs as well as protect against business disruptions.

Solar Decathlon 2013

The winner of the competition is the team that best blends affordability, consumer appeal, and design excellence with optimal energy production and maximum efficiency.

Solar Power International 2013 News Report

News and Announcements from SPI13. Exhibitors are welcome to publish their company news here.

Solar Powered Unmanned Vehicles

When you have the combination of high energy density and thin and flexible form factor, you can apply this solar material to anything with a battery that moves, can be carried, or worn.

Policy Blueprint for a Renewable Energy Future: America's Power Plan

The Plan is a comprehensive response to the rapid changes in the power sector coming from new technologies, consumer demand and policy. Siting new renewables and the associated infrastructure is a key part of that transition.

Zinc Redox Flow Battery Technology

Combined with the aging infrastructure of the power grid and political pressure to reduce both nuclear and coal-fired generation, grid-scale storage is now recognized as a critical technology for the future of the world electricity supply.

Solar Hot Water: Which is better, PV or Thermal?

Recently, reductions in solar electric (PV) costs and maturation of air-to-water heat pump technology have provided a new model: solar-electric assisted heat pump water heating (HPWH).

GreenFasten™ solar panel roof mount hardware, watertight, USA made

GreenFasten™ solar panel roof mount hardware, watertight, USA made

The GreenFasten™ - GF1 system utilizes the patented watertight technology EcoFasten Solar® is known for. The flashing is fit with our EPDM rubber bushing and when used with a compatible EcoFasten Solar compression bracket (milled with countersink), a watertight seal is created, which protects the integrity of the roof. Requiring just a single fastener (lag bolt or self-drilling), GreenFasten provides the fastest install in the industry and will not void roofing manufacturer's warranties. Backed by IAPMO certification, GreenFasten delivers a mounting solution for all new or existing (retrofit) composition shingle roofs, and is the most cost-effective solution available. Like all of the solar roof mount solutions in our line of products, GreenFasten is made in the USA using recycled materials.
