Led by NREL senior wind technology engineer Derek Berry, the team's novel techniques could revolutionize how wind turbine blades are manufactured.
As an organization scales, bespoke cross-team communications become a major choke point. In addition to being slow, error-prone, and redundant, these manual touchpoints also result in unnecessary spending and lost sales.
Increasing costs are the result of converging factors, including decreasing supplies of key raw materials, changing logistics and shipping costs, and an unstable labor market. Here's a breakdown of the biggest factors affecting renewables right now.
Ground mount farm with bifacial panels and power optimizers reduces diesel reliance, creates local solar jobs
Nova Solar is a family-owned company founded by two brothers, Barklie and Trip Estes. When Barklie was searching for panel attachments they could use without metal flashing, he got in touch with Roof Tech and began using the RT-MINI on their residential projects.
NREL Tidal Research Reveals Opportunities for Rebuilding Alaska's Economy with Renewable Energy
Wind turbines can have negative impacts on ecosystems present in the air and underwater. The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has been researching solutions with the help of the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL).
Electric Vehicles' Unsustainable Little Secret - Batteries Are the Weak Link in the Sustainability Chain
Typically made from raw materials including cobalt, nickel and manganese, lithium-ion batteries are extremely expensive to produce and require high levels of mining activity.
Electrification is just beginning in many parts of the world. For western countries that have enjoyed electricity for a century, this is hard to imagine, but for 1 billion people, kerosene lamps are their reality.
The Importance of Effective Business Continuity Planning and Disaster Recovery to Weather the Next Big Storm
While well-defined BCP and DR plans are standard practice for industry compliance and control frameworks, keeping them updated and ensuring their viability is just as important as the plans themselves.
We've had multiple reminders in 2021 that digital connectivity of IT and OT infrastructure requires proportional attention risk management to proactively neutralize ransomware and full array of attack vector focused on industrial environments.
Gigafactories have several advantages over smaller facilities. They can eliminate some of the risks of complex supply chains, they are built with sustainability in mind from day one and they spur economic growth by creating employment opportunities for thousands of people.
The club is located on a private peninsula, bound on three sides by water and on the fourth side by federal and state lands. The area is subject to 180 mph, Category 5 hurricane winds, making installation of a low-profile, roof-mounted system essential.
The battery uses both a solid state electrolyte and an all-silicon anode, making it a silicon all-solid-state battery. The initial rounds of tests show that the new battery is safe, long lasting, and energy dense.
In battery pack manufacturing, the cells are often already assembled and the engineer is challenged with coming up with a design to join them in series and parallel to deliver optimum energy. A typical Li-ion cell is constructed of nickel plated cold rolled steel.

HPS EnduraCoil is a high-performance cast resin transformer designed for many demanding and diverse applications while minimizing both installation and maintenance costs. Coils are formed with mineral-filled epoxy, reinforced with fiberglass and cast to provide complete void-free resin impregnation throughout the entire insulation system. HPS EnduraCoil complies with the new NRCan 2019 and DOE 2016 efficiency regulations and is approved by both UL and CSA standards. It is also seismic qualified per IBC 2012/ASCE 7-10/CBC 2013. Cast resin transformers are self-extinguishing in the unlikely event of fire, environmentally friendly and offer greater resistance to short circuits. HPS also offers wide range of accessories for transformer protection and monitoring requirements.
