Upgrading the Grid to Accommodate Renewable Energy

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

Power-to-Molecules, a multistage rocket to a new energy area

The idea behind 'Power-to-X' is to convert water and carbon dioxide to renewable fuels and chemical building blocks. To get this done, we need to develop and upscale new technology.

Community Monitoring at Ground Zero Nuclear Test Sites

The program currently encompasses twenty-four monitoring stations placed in publicly-accessible areas of communities surrounding the Nevada National Security Site (NNSS). To keep these systems running full-time, the DRI turned to Morningstar solar charge controllers.

How Egypt Banks on Renewables to Meet Expected Surge of Energy Demand

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?

NREL Research Points to Strategies for Recycling of Solar Panels

Researchers at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) have conducted the first global assessment into the most promising approaches to end-of-life management for solar photovoltaic (PV) modules

Transparent and Double-Sided Sun-Tracking Solar Panels Could Be the Future

Becoming more affordable or practical are essential steps in driving the switch to renewables. Still, more innovation needs to happen. The solar panel industry needs to see substantial changes, and thankfully, it looks like there are some on the horizon.

Remote Communities Lead the Way to a Renewables Future

Remote communities often operate without the benefit of a main utility grid and depend on diesel fuel for power generation. This dependence on diesel represents not only economic cost, but also environmental cost in the form of greenhouse gas emissions and noise pollution.

10 Ways BIM Is Improving Renewable Energy Efficiency

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.

Producing Energy from Vibrations

Hypothetically, all vibration energy can be transformed into electrical energy; but there are certain types of vibrations that are preferred when the intent is to power a sensor or monitoring system. These vibrations need to have a steady vibration and a controlling frequency.

Engineering a Bright Future

While the solar panels will provide around 12 per cent of the school's annual electricity needs, the panels themselves act as a bonus. The main driver for the project is education.

Breakthrough Machine Learning Approach Quickly Produces 50X Higher-Resolution Climate Data

This approach will enable scientists to complete renewable energy studies in future climate scenarios faster and with more accuracy.

Silicon Ranch Launches Regenerative Energy at Tennessee's Largest Operating Solar Farm

In the case of the Millington Solar Farm, Silicon Ranch has partnered with Cabriejo Ranch to release over 1,000 ewes to graze on the site. Along with other regenerative practices in place, the grazing of these ewes is a critical component of Regenerative Energy™.

Solar Tracker Configuration, The Key to Reducing the LCOE

The solar tracker market is increasingly more focused on the role of wind as a decisive factor leading to reduced solar project power generation.

Cattle Ranch Beefs Up Savings with Solar Energy

The farmer realized it would be more cost-effective and environmentally sound to begin sourcing their electricity from the sun. Impressively, the new solar system provides enough energy to irrigate 450 hectares (1,112 acres) of corn, oat and pastures for cattle ranching.

Why Resource Recovery is Critical to the Future of Clean Transportation

Recently, a report from industry analysts stated that by the end of this year - 2020 - China alone will generate approximately 500,000 metric tons of used lithium-ion batteries and that by 2030.
