Climate Action: The mega project will cover approximately 890 acres (365 hectares) - an area equivalent to more than 400 football pitches.
Bonnie Christian for Wired: At this year’s WIRED Energy conference, some of the sector's most innovative early-stage companies pitched their ideas.
Dom Galeon for Futurism: Together with MIT, Italian carmaker Lamborghini developed a new electric supercar that can also store energy. With supercapacitors instead of batteries, the Terzo Millennio is able to carry more power, which it can store in its carbon fiber body.
John Fitzgerald Weaver for electrek: Instead of perfectly spacing those 60 out – with small, defined areas between the cells – the company has allowed the solar cell’s borders to overlap each other while increasing the cell count to 68.

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.
