Graphite has been the default choice of active material for anodes in lithium-ion batteries since their original launch by Sony but researchers and manufacturers have long sought a way to replace graphite with silicon, as it is an abundantly available element with ten times
Some analysts have predicted that renewables will make up the greatest part of the nation's energy portfolio in spite of any policies that are implemented.
Currently, many rural electric cooperatives and municipal utilities can save money through community-scale solar by avoiding generation and demand charges.
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.
Despite looming policy uncertainty in the two most active markets, corporations globally purchased 5.4 gigawatts of clean power through long-term contracts, surpassing 2015's record.
Smart Off-Grid provides a way for off-grid systems to be monitored, managed and controlled remotely. Built-in, low-cost wireless communications in solar, wind and hybrid-powered devices send critical data to a cloud-based management system in real-time.
The trash cans are solar powered because they don't just collect trash, they compact it. That allows each receptacle to hold about five times more waste than a non-compactor of the same size.
The year of 2018 will only mean further immersion into all things digital, so be sure your company stays relevant and financially viable through sustainability measures.

Illinois Doctor Converts His BMW To Electric Power Using Nine U.S. Battery 12-Volt Deep-Cycle Batteries
Integrating the module and the inverter is a natural evolution. In the PC industry, silicon semiconductor components have been continuously integrated to reduce manufacturing cost, reduce complexity, and simplify the customer experience.
When looking at potential solutions to becoming more self reliant/sustainable with energy, the conversation needs to begin with taking a hard look on how energy is being used today. There are several outside the box solutions that naturally lend themselves to sustainability
World clean energy investment totalled $333.5 billion last year, up 3% from 2016 and the second highest annual figure ever, taking cumulative investment since 2010 to $2.5 trillion
Specialized PVD coatings and nitriding significantly increase the durability and lifespan of wind turbine components like roller bearings and planetary gears under metal-on-metal, high load conditions
There is no doubting the magnitude of opportunity facing the global solar industry now and in the coming years. However, the industry must reflect on past failures and put in place processes which ensure they are not repeated.
