John Fitzgerald Weaver for Electrek: SmartWire is part of an industry wide remaking of 'busbars.' In order to squeeze greater efficiency from the same limited rooftop space, an evolution on the front side of the solar panel has been sped up.
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
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
Peter Valdes-Dapena for CNN Money: In 2018, electric cars will finally turn the corner from curious niche product to become a viable option for America's families. Next year will mark a turning point in the ultimate electrification of America's roads.
Steve Gillman for Horizon: Rising populations and climate change are putting pressure on the water needed for agriculture but a solar-powered irrigation system may reduce the amount that farmers use - while simultaneously slashing the sector's greenhouse gas emissions.
Echo Huang for Quartz: The Berkeley Energy Group is planning to turn a strip mine in the Appalachians into a solar power plant that could produce somewhere between 50 to 100 MW of power in 2018.
The U.S. installed more than 2 gigawatts (GW) of solar photovoltaics (PV) in the third quarter of 2017, despite experiencing higher prices across all market segments and major policy uncertainty.
Phys.org: A new 'double-glazing' solar power device - which is unlike any existing solar panel and opens up fresh opportunities to develop more advanced photovoltaics - has been invented by University of Warwick researchers.
Andrew Chesterton for The Motor Report: Mercedes-Benz is considering using old car batteries to power your house. The plan would see the German manufacturer rolling out a second-life program for its lithium-ion batteries to combat rival Tesla's Powerwall.
Fox News: A plan to build scores of offshore, electricity-generating windmills within eyesight of the Kennedy compound and numerous other tony properties in one of America's wealthiest, and most scenic areas, is officially dead in the water.
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.
John Fitzgerald Weaver for Electrek: The smart window lowers building temperatures by shifting from clear to opaque under strong sunlight. When the shift to opaque occurs, the solar prototype begins electricity production.
Karen Graham for Digital Journal: An agrophotovoltaics (APV) pilot project conducted at Lake Constance has proven that farming and the use of solar panels can be compatible.
Julian Spector for GTM: "The world's largest gridscale battery - the Hornsdale Power Reserve battery - charged for the first time at 8.36am and reached 31 MW in 2 mins," tweeted Audrey Zibelman, the leader of Australia's energy market operator, on Friday.
Facilities managers at large facilities often have the challenging task of managing all the flow energy in their facility with the mandate from upper management to save money on energy costs.
