Fuel Cells Out of Orbit

Fuel cells are ideal for space missions for many reasons. Fuel cells can run for long durations without interruption as long as fuel is supplied. They produce electricity very efficiently and reliably. In addition, the light weight of fuel cells reduces total launch pad weight.

EV Charging Station Video

Electric vehicle owners will influence an extensive network of charging stations being installed in Madison, Wisconsin by MGE. In a story produced by StoryBridge.tv, see how MGE will use driver input to configure its power grid for a new wave of green transportation.

Case Study - Missouri Department of Transportation St. Clair Maintenance Facility

Missouri Department of Transportation St. Clair Maintenance Facility installation of 48 SolarSheats Solar air panels deployed on two structures (one with eight and one with 40) and two solar hot water systems each using four 4' x 8' flat plate collectors both on the same structure (one for a car wash and the other for domestic hot water).

Fused Quartz, a Critical Component of the Solar Power Industry

Due to its stability, chemical purity, transmissivity to light, and heat resistance, quartz has for many years been vital to the production of semiconductors for the electronics industry. The material is virtually inert, very durable and will withstand the high temperatures associated with semiconductor fabrication and testing.

Solar Energy Conversion Process: Light and Heat

Photon Enhanced Thermionic Emission or PETE, simultaneously combines the heat and light from solar radiation to create electricity. Traditional solar panels utilize photovoltaic technology, which is flawed in that it decreases in efficiency as temperature rises. This is an obvious problem, seeing as the sun produces both light and heat. The new process of PETE, actually increases efficiency of the panels as the heat index increases.

AltEnergyMag Interview - 3 Leading EcoCAR Challenge Teams

We got the opportunity to interview the three leading teams in the EcoCAR Challenge namely Mississippi State University, Virginia Tech and Pennsylvania State University. These are the future leaders in the alternative energy transportation industry and it shows in their enthusiasm.

The Progressive Insurance Automotive X-Prize - Competiton Overview and Results

The Progressive Insurance Automotive X-Prize is a huge undertaking involving Establishing a venue, staffing, training, developing tests, setting up Consumers Reports Certifications, and taking over the Michigan International Speedway in the outback, near a small town named Brooklyn in our fair State of Michigan.

Commitment to Clean Energy Technology Would Help U.S. Become Global Economic Leader and Job Creator

Innovative technological ideas that originate from small American manufacturing companies often go unrewarded. Why? Because often those companies don't have the ability to take their innovations to the world through an aggressive exporting program.

Case Study From Solar Power Partners

The West County Wastewater District, located on the San Francisco Bay, provides wastewater collection, treatment, and disposal services for several cities and parts of Contra Costa County. In adopting solar energy, the agency was interested in the long term cost-saving benefits a solar PPA afforded and its no-money down approach. The solar PPA was an excellent solution: the wastewater district pays only for the power the system produces, does not incur operation and maintenance expenses, and sees savings on its electricity bill for the next twenty years-a plus for the District's ratepayers.

Winning Hearts and Minds in the Renewable Energy Game

Ontario has been the recipient of numerous accolades lauding its aggressive renewable energy legislation and hospitable investment climate. However, some worry that despite all of these advances, Ontario is not doing everything in its power to make green technology a priority.

Micro-gardening Or Solar Electricity?

Suppose you are living in a large city and take the decision to stop using a privately owned vehicle and rely instead upon a shared car, public transport, or bicycling. Assuming you had off-street parking, what is the best use of your former parking space: gardening or solar electricity?

Sanyo Canopies Create New Solar Vernacular For Architects, Building Owners & Hoteliers

Design Flexibility and Superior Energy Output of SANYO's Bi-facial HIT® Double Modules Provide Architects & Building Owners More Solar Design Options and Increased Revenue Potential

Shaping America's Green Workforce: Community Colleges' Role

As environmental awareness and the trend toward the adaptation of sustainability practices become common in corporate America, the academic world is placed in a unique position to make a significant contribution to this trend by providing education and training that responds to this trend.

Altenergymag Interview - Solar Project Capitalization and Development

Prior to joining MP2 Capital as Managing Director, Jeff was a Managing Director at Lehman Brothers in Hong Kong, where he served as Head of Asia Technology Investment Banking and worked with many of the solar industry's leading panel and module suppliers. Mr. Glavan has more than 12 years of investment banking experience in corporate finance covering leading technology companies, and has advised clients on over 100 transactions including private placements, IPOs, follow-on equity offerings, high yield and convertible debt financings, and M&A and other strategic advisory transactions.

Low-cost and high performance heliostats

Heliostats are the component with the greatest impact on the cost in solar tower CSP installations, assuming 50% of the total investment. In the last years, there have been serious attempts to reduce cost by relaxing some features. The TITAN TRACKER concept achieves the goal of reducing cost offering higher performance than the rest of heliostats.
