Silicon carbide enables solar inverters to be lighter, smaller and more efficient. Using silicon carbide power components instead of silicon for solar inverters can save 10 megawatts for each gigawatt and 500 watts/sec in operations, representing significant energy savings.
With stay-at-home orders in place in many states, homes utilizing deep-cycle batteries for power could be increasingly straining their systems. As more people stay home, more appliances and electrical accessories that would typically be off during the day will be used.
The Evolution of Solar Technology - How Photovoltaic Technology Has Developed and Why Nanotechnology May Influence the Future
Here, Dr Franky So, chief technology officer of nanotechnology research company Nextgen Nano, explains the historical developments of photovoltaic technology and looks to the innovations shaping the years ahead.
In two-thirds of the world, renewable sources of power are more affordable than carbon-based electricity. This shift represents a substantial victory for green energy, as it may offer the push the industry needs to become the new norm. Here's how this monumental shift happened.
All 50 states show solar jobs losses, with 36 states suffering job losses above 30%. Seven states and Washington, DC- including large solar states like New York and New Jersey- have seen solar job losses exceed 60%.
• 447,208 new unemployment filings in April, triple March claims • CA, FL, GA, TX, MI, NC, WA, NY, OH among hardest hit states • Energy efficiency job losses top 400,000; renewable job losses near 100,000
Now, however, many green energy companies are looking toward a new kind of offshore wind turbine that won't need a concrete foundation. This new technology allows a turbine to float instead of sitting on the ocean floor.
SimpliPhi Power Teams Up with Footprint Project to Deliver Clean Energy Microgrid to Field Hospital for Matamoros Migrant Camp Fighting COVID-19
SimpliPhi's batteries combined with Solar PV are providing power 24/7 for the COVID-19 'pop-up' clinic at the Matamoros Migrant Camp of 3,000 asylum seekers in Mexico at the Texas border
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.
Xplore's Advanced Solar Sail Design will be the Fastest Spacecraft Ever Made, Expanding Xplore's Reach Beyond the Inner Solar System
According to the US PV market study of Wood Mackenzie, throughout 2020 more than 6 GW will be installed in photovoltaic projects, of which Soltec will install almost 600 MW. Colin Caufield, Soltec VP of Sales USA reveals the company's next movements.
Solar, wind and batteries see dramatic gains in competitiveness over the last six months compared to longer-established energy options
Industry suppliers tend to throw around a lot of different labor metrics. What do they actually mean? How do variations in modules-per-day or modules-per-hour impact your bottom line? And-a primary concern-will a given supplier stand behind their claims?
Supply chain disruptions and other issues related to the pandemic have manufacturers and green energy companies worried their projects in development won't be able to benefit from tax credits set to expire at the end of this year.
Wind is now America's largest renewable energy provider and the top choice for new utility-scale power
Annual market report shows wind industry topped 100 GW, employed 120,000 Americans, invested $14 billion in new projects, and provided $1.6 billion in local payments to communities and landowners last year.
