SUSTAINABILITY SCIENCE BREAKTHROUGHS FROM AROUND THE GLOBE TO BE HONORED WITH THE NEW "RESONATE" AWARD
The award winners will be announced in the Spring of 2014.
Advances in solar cell technology can make drones a more powerful tool not only for the battlefield but also for civilian uses, such as firefighting, crop surveying and oil and gas field monitoring. A Silicon Valley company called Alta Devices has been working with AeroVironment to engineer a drone that can stay airborne longer and carry out missions that are impossible before. The result of the collaboration is a 13-pound prototype drone that can fly for 9 hours and 11 minutes, AeroVironment announced recently. The military contractor credited its new battery and Alta’s solar technology for the feat. A drone similar to the one by AeroVironment typically can fly for one or two hours before it has to land and recharge, said Chris Norris, Alta’s CEO. AeroVironment’s new battery is good for three hours. By embedding Alta’s ultra thin and highly efficient solar cells on the aircraft, the battery is able to recharge twice before daylight fades and keeps the drone in the air three times longer, Norris added. California-based AeroVironment is still tinkering with the design of the drone, which is part of its Puma AE line. It plans to roll out a design that it could produce and sell in early 2014.
The 9kW system in the Queensland city Australia, installed with Clenergy's SolarTerrace III solar mounting system, survived a series of tornados that ran across and beyond the Bundaberg area. The solar mounting system remained standing as installed, , with the frame only needing one rail replaced.
The Federal Court of Australia made a public declaration that Grace Solar had infringed one of Clenergy's certified innovation patents. Grace Solar is prohibited from selling its infringing products in Australia.
