Sustaintech, short for sustainable technologies, are technologies which provide environmental and social value and help advance a better future for humanity. They leverage intelligent technologies and have a high degree of internet-integration to reduce environmental impact, and enhance efficiency and resource productivity.
The event at Darts Farm attracted more than 50 businesses from the South West and beyond, many of whom already have solar PV systems in place at their sites and are now looking for the next step to reduce their reliance on energy companies further.
Alexander C. Kaufman for Huffington Post: The first-of-its-kind project could be a model for states like Washington and Oregon, and countries like Brazil, that depend heavily on hydroelectricity.
Amber Kinetics and Global Energy Giant Enel S.p.A. Announce Agreement to Assess Innovative Flywheel Storage Technology
Paige Leuschner for SmartCitiesDive: In the energy industry, utilities are employing these solutions to provide customers with more information about their energy consumption.
Working with partners in industry and academia, NREL delivers the scientific building blocks for new energy technologies that drive the country's economic growth. NREL's world-class researchers, facilities, tools, and analysis yield innovations that create new business opportunities and greatly reduce the risk of investment for energy companies and manufacturers.
Lacy Cooke for Inhabitat: Toronto Hydro is testing a grid-scale energy storage system that can be attached to poles already present around the city.
Tereza Pultarova, Live Science Contributor: The windows have solar cells installed in the edges at a specific angle that allows the incoming solar light to be efficiently transformed into electricity.
Being so far away from mainland Massachusetts, it made sense for Cuttyhunk Island to have an inexhaustible source of energy in the form of solar PV.
The latest step in SEV's renewable energy program is a new 12 MW wind farm located in Húsahagi, on the island of Streymoy. Since coming on line in 2014, the wind farm has increased the islands' wind share to 26 percent of total electricity production.
James Temple for MIT Technology Review: Falling prices, improving technology, and smart public policies are changing the calculations.
Nick Lavars for New Atlas: "I thought the dirt had to affect their efficiencies, but there weren't any studies out there estimating the losses. So we put together a comprehensive model to do just that."
Like the students' continual career evolution after participating in one of the most rigorous and comprehensive university competitions, the houses that have competed in the seven U.S.-based Solar Decathlons continue to find new purposes and opportunities all over the world.
NEXTracker is thrilled to launch our latest product innovation, TrueCapture™. TrueCapture™ is a revolutionary new software-as-a-service (SaaS) plus hardware offering.
Katherine Lin for NBC News MACH: A team of researchers in Australia have created an experimental paint that attracts water molecules from the air and chops them up to produce hydrogen.

Professional weather sensors form the heart of large solar plants supporting their operation and performance. Lufft was the first manufacturer to combine several sensors in one housing, bringing the largest multiparameter weather sensor family with 19 members into being. Many of them are well-suited for solar site assessment and continuous monitoring. The most commonly used one is the WS600 delivering data on temperature, air pressure, wind, relative humidity and precipitation. Through its open protocol, it can easily be attached to radiation sensors e.g. from Kipp&Zonen. Other models have an integrated Silicon, Second Class or Secondary Standard radiation sensor.
