Are Solar Shingles and Solar Windows Viable?

Solar shingles and solar windows signify what solar can, and most likely, will be in the future-integrated and sleek. With lower prices, this technology should take off in the near future.

What Does the Future of Fuel Bring?

We are currently being encouraged to make the transition over to electric and hybrid vehicles, but just what effect will this have on traditional fuel sources? Lookers, who offer a variety of car servicing plans, explore what the future of fuel looks like for the UK.

Frost Heave and Solar Arrays

For continuous racks, the vertical deformation results in additional stresses on the racking system and can cause a variety of issues such as cracked modules; solar panel distortion; damage to conductor; connection failures; and more.

2019 State Solar Power Rankings Report

Given how well the industry has weathered the solar tariffs enacted by the Trump administration in early 2018, and how the costs to install just keep falling, it seems certain that solar is ready for its moment in the spotlight.

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 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.

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.

#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.

Utility Solar Project in Riverside County, California

Sunpin Solar, who earned Solar Power Worlds distinction as a 2018 Top Five Solar Developer in the United States, constructed the ground-mounted project in Mecca, California.
