Solar-powered Solutions on the Farm: Purdue-affiliated Company Completes Microgrid for Crop Production Facility

Adding solar power with energy storage was the first step in the company's long-term vision of lowering its carbon footprint and using clean energy to power its operation.

From Fuel to Photovoltaics - How Photovoltaic Technology Can Be Used in Transport

In their current state, photovoltaics cannot generate the amount of energy needed to fully power electric vehicles like cars and buses. However, they will augment power needs, making batteries last longer and generating power for features such as air-conditioning.

NREL Launches New International Consortium To Advance High-Tech Mirrors Used in Solar Plants

Researchers Seek To Lower Cost of Heliostats 50% and Jump-Start Manufacturing in the United States

Intersolar & Energy Storage North America Product Preview

Intersolar and Energy Storage North America takes place January 13th - 15th in Long Beach, California. The Exhibit hall floor will be loaded with new products and services. Here is a preview of some things to look forward to at this years event.

2021 Top Article - Best Practices for Installing a Solar-Ready Low Slope Roof

When installing a solar array, having a coverboard as part of the roofing assembly is a best practice. As such, most manufacturers of solar mounts test and evaluate their mechanical attachment products with a coverboard over polyisocyanurate (polyiso) insulation.

2021 Top Article - Solar Wind Could Replace Solar Energy

As the solar wind streams toward Earth, it carries the Sun's magnetic field. Moving very fast, it hits into the Earth's magnetic field, causing a shock to our magnetic protection, which results in turbulence.

2021 Top Article - How IIoT Thermal Monitoring Solutions Can Increase Asset Lifetime and Prevent Fires on Solar Farms

Learn how remote thermal monitoring enables early detection of high resistance joints and prevents overheating, increasing asset lifetime.

2021 Top Article - Artificial Photosynthesis as a Renewable Energy Source

There is a growing effort toward establishing a high-tech energy-generating system that is fundamentally inspired by nature itself: artificial photosynthesis.

Freezing Winter Weather is No Match for Roof Tech AlphaSeal™ Technology

Extreme winter cold can cause asphalt shingles to become brittle and crack if they are lifted during the PV installation process - a scenario that can quickly compromise the integrity of the roof and cause leaks.

Heliogen Demonstrates AI-Powered Autonomous Robot Designed to Lower Installation and Maintenance Costs of Full-Scale Concentrated Solar Plants

ICARUS, Heliogen's Installation & Cleaning Autonomous Robot & Utility Solution, is Expected to be Enhanced and Deployed Across Heliogen's Full-Scale Facilities by 2023

Solar Prices Continue to Rise but Build Back Better Act Will Boost Installs 31% Through 2026

As supply chain challenges persist, the solar industry awaits massive growth with the potential passage of the Build Back Better Act

Four Innovative Ways Solar Professionals Can Use Emerging Technology in Field Service

Be it enterprise-level, commercial or utility-scale, field service plays a vital role for maintenance and repair. The availability of technology enriches performance and operations in various ways.

Heliogen and Bloom Energy Lead the Way to Produce Low-Cost, Green Hydrogen Following Successful Demonstration

Longer run time and steam generation through concentrated solar, combined with high-temperature electrolysis, unlock low-cost hydrogen production

Purdue researchers test 3D concrete printing system as part of NSF-funded project

Transitioning to clean wind energy could become more cost-efficient as Purdue University researchers test a new technology created by an international startup to anchor offshore wind turbines.

NREL Explores Innovative Manufacturing Approach for Next-Generation Wind Turbine Blades

Led by NREL senior wind technology engineer Derek Berry, the team's novel techniques could revolutionize how wind turbine blades are manufactured.
