Learning From Solar's Past Mistakes to Ensure a Brighter Future

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.

Role of Renewable Energy in Sustainable Agriculture and Food Security

Use of Renewable energy sources in agriculture production process not only will solve problems of energy and water scarcity but will ensure food security and enhance sustainable agriculture in Pakistan.

Be Inspired By Impressive Solar Facilities

With ever-increasing panel efficiency, gross installation costs at under $4 a watt, and available tax credits to help defray the cost, there's never been a better time to consider this technology.

Improving Utility Scale PV Plant Operational Reliability via Effective Monitoring

This article examines the hidden power-loss case study data from a utility scale array. The role of string-level monitoring in identifying hidden power losses and its use as a tool in maintaining a high-level PV array operational reliability will be discussed.

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

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

The Future of Residential Home Energy Storage

2017 - Most Popular Article - With the market growing so rapidly, consumers need to understand which product best suits their household's energy needs. Again, the key is starting with a customer's energy usage and determining how they will use an energy storage system.

Solar-only Tower Sites - A Recipe for Success or Failure?

Regardless of whether a tower company or an MNO is establishing a new tower site or upgrading an existing one, a hybrid power system is the clear answer to being able to balance customers' demands for network reach and reliability and operational demands

Metal Roofing Makes Solar a More Cost-Effective Residential Option

Installing a solar system on metal will increase the modules' performance and decrease energy and installation costs as compared to other common roofing materials. Plus, metal also has other environmental benefits

What is Flexibility Management Software?

At the heart of what we do is the notion that the flexible capacity from grid-connected distributed energy resources (DER) that can be ramped up or down needs to be optimized to support an efficient, decarbonized grid.

Indoor Farms of America Brings World's First Solar Powered Vertical Aeroponic Farm, Announces More International Sales

Indoor Farms of America announces the first fully operating, 100% solar powered vertical aeroponic indoor farm in the world.

The International Solar Alliance Becomes Legal December 6

The future of the International Solar Alliance, known as the ISA, looks bright. The organization is set to become official on Dec. 6, 2017. On the first day the ISA agreement was opened to other countries in Marrakesh, Morocco, it received 15 signatures.

Can We Harvest Energy from Space?

Harvesting energy from space might be a long way off, but there are many technologies that already exist to make this endeavor achievable. While we don't know the future of harvesting energy from space, it is stimulating to see such ideas.

The Evolution of PV Technology

There have been three key eras of PV technology development: PV1.0, marked by the birth of the silicon PV cell and exploration around the application of clean energy; PV2.0, which brought about the global mass commercialization of solar and more affordable yet lower quality module technologies; and PV3.0, the era we are just now entering.

The North Bay's Largest Recycler of Rubble Materials: A Solar Tracker Case Study

The Soiland Company's solar project exceeded the company's production goals, with 2,096 kWh peak day production to date (offsetting quarry demand as early as 7:00AM). Matching the system's annual production would require a 330kW+ fixed array, or an additional 528 PV panels.
