As more businesses, utilities, and state bodies look to solar energy to help them meet their carbon reduction goals and cut energy costs, safety is coming under ever more scrutiny.
One of the primary problems with PFAS is their "persistence." Persistence means they can persist in soil, water, and in the human body … for years. Exposure to water, air, and sunlight does little to degrade them, thus they are known as "forever" chemicals.
"I wanted my customers to see the product up close for themselves, not just view an iPad demo," he said. "So, I built a tiny house using plexiglass and mounted RT-MINI II on the roof."
PV Evolution Labs (PVEL), the leading independent test lab for the downstream solar and energy storage industry published its 2022 PV Module Reliability Scorecard, which names 122 model types of PV modules from 25 manufacturers as Top Performers in PVEL's testing.
Some regions are preventing further damage by minimizing carbon emissions. Residents, companies and communities can become carbon-neutral by following six conservation steps that may also help countries achieve their sustainability goals.
With growing energy demand and increasing focus on energy security and supply resiliency, governments and businesses alike have turned to digital strategies to shape the new energy landscape.
By combining onsite generation, an advanced energy storage system and a world-class artificial intelligence-powered analytics platform, SCA optimizes energy usage by automatically switching between onsite generation, battery power and grid power.
This project, like most, came with its share of challenges and requests from a discerning homeowner who wanted top quality. The ask: plan and install a solar system to handle the high electricity needs of this large home with a customized design and clean aesthetics.
The Future of Distributed Wind in the United States: Considerations for Unlocking Terawatt-Level Potential
NREL's Distributed Wind Energy Futures Study Finds the Most Promising Locations, Sectors for Distributed Wind To Play a Meaningful Role in the U.S. Energy Future
EV production is similar to thermal cars - raw materials are extracted, processed, transferred and engineered to assemble the vehicle. However, manufacturing EVs generates more carbon emissions than their conventional counterparts.
A successful transition to clean energy requires safe, cost-effective, and reliable energy storage systems. Such storage systems will also be necessary to improve the efficiency of the electrical distribution grid by reducing power surges and balancing the load over time.
When assessing the site, the installation team noticed some challenges that would make foundation installation difficult-a 21% north and south slope, rocky terrain, and drainage swales.
The setup would consist of a 24ft canvas geodesic dome, an outdoor kitchen, a separate enclosed bathroom, and a utility trailer with solar panels mounted on the roof and all the required electrical inside.
Perovskite materials may hold the potential to play an important role in a process to produce hydrogen in a renewable manner, according to an analysis from scientists at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL).
The peak, which occurred briefly at 3:39 p.m., broke the previous record of 96.4 percent set on March 27, 2022. The new milestone comes as the ISO integrates growing amounts of renewable energy onto the grid in support of the state's clean energy goals.

Stat-X® Condensed Aerosol Fire Suppression is a solution for energy storage systems (ESS) and battery energy storage systems (BESS) applications. This includes in-building, containerized, and in-cabinet applications. The Stat-X product was tested for efficacy in putting out Li-ion battery fires. It was found that the Stat-X agent successfully extinguished single and double cell battery fires. This testing was conducted in parallel with a large battery fire testing program. DNV GL Energy conducted the testing and validated effectiveness of the Stat-X aerosol agent on cell level Li-ion battery fires.
