How Geothermal Systems Work and Where They Fit in the Energy Industry

Below the earth's surface, there's a source of power with impressive potential - geothermal energy. This source of power revolves around using the natural temperature of the earth to produce power and provide heating and cooling for buildings.

Solar Energy for Universities and Colleges

One of the largest challenges for managing energy use in a university setting is the inconsistent usage patterns throughout the year.

What Laws and Bans Are Helping to Protect the Planet?

There are still huge strides to make to combat climate change, but we are definitely making progress. Leaders from across the globe are stepping up efforts to ensure marked changes are being made to dramatically reduce emissions and change behaviours - and fast.

The Connection Between Alternative Energy Technology and Building Trends in the Intermountain West

Nevada led the renewable energy pack by voting in favor of Question 6, with 59 percent of voters approving the measure. Known as the Renewable Energy Standards Initiative, it will require Nevada to source at least 50 percent of its electricity from renewable sources by 2030

Solar and Renewable Energy Trends in 2019

The new year stands before us, like a chapter in a book, waiting to be written. Sven Lindström, CEO of Swedish solar energy technology leader Midsummer, gives us his insights as to what developments we can we expect from the solar and renewable energy sectors in 2019

The Most Common Solar Circuitry Schemes

Apart from the solar panel itself, virtually any circuit consists of a solar regulator, inverter and, most commonly, a battery. Let's briefly go through their functions.

Designing Solar Arrays for Extreme Weather

After a storm like Michael or Florence, it may take weeks or months to fully restore electricity. Solar and energy storage technologies can help address immediate, short-term needs while building a resilient electricity grid for the future.

2019 Renewable Energy and Power Industry Outlook

Despite uncertainty about federal tax reform effects and a spate of new import tariffs, strong fundamentals continue to underpin wind and solar growth and supported growth in 2018. And these are buoyed by the 3 enabling trends of emerging policies...

Infrastructure to be Powered by Dedicated Renewable Energy Systems

The time is right to amp-up blended renewable energy and energy storage solutions dedicated to solely power our infrastructure.

What is Betavoltaic Power?

The term betavoltaic is interchangeable with atomic battery, nuclear battery, tritium battery and radioisotope generator. They are used to designate a device, which expends energy from the decay of a radioactive isotope to produce electricity.

Renewable Energy Market Trends to Watch in 2019

Renewable energy has now reached a point where it can compete with fossil fuel technologies, regardless of subsidies, according to Ethan Zindler, head of Americas at Bloomberg New Energy Finance (BNEF). This reality will play out in 2019

#1 Article for 2018 - Piezoelectric Power Generation in Automotive Tires

As the vehicle moves, a new area of the tire continually deforms and relaxes in a cyclic pattern whose frequency is dependent upon the speed of the vehicle. The piezoelectric bender elements would deform and relax with the tire. This deformation allows for the collection of

Top Article for 2018 - Alternative Energy Sources We Probably Didn't Know

These are some of the alternative energy sources we probably didn't know because we may never have bothered to learn about them. However, as the sources are now available or will be available soon it is essential for us to understand them and make the best use of them

Top Article for 2018 - What are Hot Solar Cells?

Thermophotovoltaics (TPV) is a method of converting heat to electricity using infrared light as an intermediary. Combustion heats an emitter to incandescence and the resulting thermal radiation is converted to electricity by a photovoltaic cell.

Cheapest AND Cleanest: Renewables Are Winning

Solar and wind energy are beating dirty fossil fuels and nuclear power in the marketplace. They are winning not because they are clean and necessary to combat carbon pollution, but because they are less expensive for power producers, companies and customers.

LG Solar Unveils NeON R with Enhanced Aesthetics and Energy Savings

LG Solar Unveils NeON R with Enhanced Aesthetics and Energy Savings

The NeON R module features "Back Contact" cell technology delivering an entirely black panel that is aesthetically pleasing and energy efficient. The cell's seamless, surface blends perfectly into nearly all rooftop designs while the module's electrodes are positioned on the rear of the cell. Using LG's N-type cell structure, the panels produce 365W of energy, up to 7.3kWp, compared to 5.8kWp of the p-type cell. The module's new design minimizes LID, thereby delivering a longer lifespan and increased energy output.
