What Is Preventing Some Countries From Making the Switch to 100% Renewables?

The most stubborn barrier is the cost of installation. Renewables are designed for simplicity, meaning solar panels and wind turbines are relatively easy and inexpensive to maintain, the initial price of the equipment to power companies and homeowners is not insurmountable.

Four Reasons the Solar Market Will Rebound after the COVID-19 Pandemic."

The 2019 photovoltaic energy sector saw unprecedented growth, so much it accounted for nearly 40% of new capacity across all electric power production markets that year. 2019 installations were up 15% from the previous year.

To Hit Climate Goals, We Need Climate-friendly Solar Trackers

The infrastructure we build in response to climate change, the #1 environmental issue of our time, should not come at the cost of having to flatten hills, fill in valleys, and raze natural structures occupying parts of a project site.

Engineering a Bright Future

While the solar panels will provide around 12 per cent of the school's annual electricity needs, the panels themselves act as a bonus. The main driver for the project is education.

Renewables May Be Key to Solve The Unemployment Crisis

Renewables may play a key role in the longterm recovery of the global economy and a proactive response to climate change. By providing more jobs in a variety of industries and transitioning to a more equitable economy, renewables are essential to handling the unemployment crisis.

How Solar and Wind Energy Are Now Cheaper than Fossil Fuels

In two-thirds of the world, renewable sources of power are more affordable than carbon-based electricity. This shift represents a substantial victory for green energy, as it may offer the push the industry needs to become the new norm. Here's how this monumental shift happened.

Understanding the Impact of COVID-19 on the Renewable Energy Industry

To understand the effects the crisis could have on the renewable energy market, we conducted a survey of project developers, analyzed data from the LevelTen Marketplace, and talked to our customers. Here are five key takeaways.

How the Renewable Energy Market Is Being Impacted by COVID-19

The success of the sustainable energy industry is challenging to determine at this time. While it has some of the same obstacles to overcome as other industries, there are also some promising signs.

What is the Safest Energy for the Future?

Energy's deathprint is the number of people killed by one kind of energy or another per kWhr produced. Coal is the worst. According to the World Health Organization, the Centers for Disease Control, and the National Academy of Science.

Is Waste to Energy Set to Increase in the Coming Years?

There are currently 71 waste to energy (WTE) plants in the United States. WTE plants only account for 0.4% of total electricity generation, although there is great potential to increase this percentage in the future.

Huawei Predicts 10 Trends in Smart PV for 2025

Over the next 5 to 10 years, renewable energy will assume a more prominent role as a main power source for power grids. Solar power, in particular, as the most noteworthy form of renewable energy, has a particularly bright future.

New Technology Will Revolutionize Hydropower

Renewable power is right at our fingertips. With the help of new technology, water bodies like oceans, lakes and rivers can provide a substantial amount of clean electricity.

How the Energy Industry Will Grow in 2020

Major shifts - including new technology, rising oil prices and a changing climate - are encouraging investors to look to new energy sources. In 2020, power consumption and the industry as a whole is expected to grow significantly.

In 2019, Kicking Biomass Out of the Clean Energy Club

Per unit of energy, biomass power plants emit more carbon dioxide from their smokestacks than coal plants. And cutting down older trees and replacing them with saplings reduces the amount of carbon stored in that forest, even under a best-case scenario.

A Comforting Thought For 2020: Clean Energy is Thriving

Onshore wind power in the U.S. officially passed 100 GW in October of this year. Looking forward, the Energy Information Agency also expects that a record breaking 14.3 GW of wind will come online in 2020.
