Today's energy system came into existence around 1900 due to the many inventions of the time, such as the move away from horse-drawn carriages and gas lamps to cars and electric lights. Now, we have the potential to make the next major change away from fossil fuels.
Despite efforts to lower energy use, the rising population and economic growth are driving global energy demand. To balance global demand with clean energy use, we must invest in projects that enable increased use of energy from renewable resources
To meet its soaring demand for energy, Egypt is turning to renewable sources. Its targets, if accomplished, will see it become a pioneer in the African energy landscape. But are the plans realistic?
Building information modeling (BIM) is a new form of technology that helps the construction industry with planning and management. As renewable energy grows as a primary focus for buildings, BIM offers a key way to enforce that sustainability.
Recently the North American Electric Reliability Corporation, working in tandem with the Electricity Information Sharing and Analysis Center, released its summary of Lessons Learned from its fifth biennial electrical power grid and emergency response exercise, GridEx V.
Renewables may play a key role in the longterm recovery of the global economy and a proactive response to climate change. By providing more jobs in a variety of industries and transitioning to a more equitable economy, renewables are essential to handling the unemployment crisis.
There are advantages and disadvantages to any type of energy source. In this article, I will discuss the disadvantages of renewable energy. Wind energy is one universally used type of renewable energy. It is also one of the fastest spreading resources for electricity. But . . .
This shift in focus is redefining engineering by providing us with a new set of challenges. In the past engineers focused on making sure their machines were safe for workers, we're now having to think of ways to make sure industry processes are safe for the entire planet.
To understand the effects the crisis could have on the renewable energy market, we conducted a survey of project developers, analyzed data from the LevelTen Marketplace, and talked to our customers. Here are five key takeaways.
The Blockchain promises to deliver a decentralized energy system that can seamlessly incorporate the large companies providing energy to millions, the small businesses hoping to get into the market, and the individual user with excess energy to sell off.
Clayton & McKervey offers tips for business survival during COVID-19, including utilization of "rolling 13-week cash flow analysis"
The realities presented by the COVID-19 health crisis have businesses focused on survival. The most important step to take after ensuring the safety of the team is to protect the company's cash position to the degree that's possible.
The current solar project finance model typically requires project developers to sell their assets to aggregators in order to have enough liquid capital to develop the next project and cover operational overhead.
People have realized that they can take control of their energy in lots of other ways. With their smart devices and a little bit of planning, consumers can now make money on their energy use, while simultaneously keeping the grid stable.
Any solar business who wants to stand out from their competition will have to embrace digital marketing as it is a powerful tool to use to connect with customers.
Will the U.S. make climate progress in 2020? If last year is any indication, the answer will emerge from states and cities where progress in tackling carbon pollution is accelerating.

The concept of combining PV arrays with standing seam metal roofing is growing-for good reasons. Metal roofs have a life expectancy of more than 40 years. Shouldn't the mounting system last as long? With S-5! zero-penetration attachment technology and PVKIT 2.0, the solarized metal roof is the most sustainable system available -and without compromising roof warranties! PVKIT 2.0 is the also the best solution for attaching PV modules directly to any exposed fastener metal roof.
