Solar power from space could be a valuable source of renewable energy, thanks to an innovative research. Researchers at the University of Strathclyde, Glasgow, have already tested equipment that would provide a platform for solar panels to collect the energy and allow it to be transferred back to earth through microwaves or lasers. This unique development would provide a reliable source of power and allow valuable energy to be sent to remote areas in the world, providing power to disaster zones or outlying areas that are difficult to reach by traditional means. "Space provides a fantastic source for collecting solar power and we have the advantage of being able to gather it regardless of the time of the day or indeed the weather conditions," said Massimiliano Vasile, mechanical and aerospace engineer at Strathclyde, who is leading the research, according to a university statement.
Beaumont Solar Company launches a unique Solar Cycling sponsorship, which will donate $25,000 to riders in local charity cycling events in 2012. Beaumont Solar is the only solar company with such an initiative to connect green communities, green sports and local charities.

Next Generation of Metallization Materials Further Improves Cost-of-Ownership for Solar Cell Users
PV by nature is an intermittent energy source that can be affected greatly (even over the course of seconds) by weather influences such as passing clouds. While this variability may not be a concern for the individual PV system owner, it is for utilities or system operators that may have tens of thousands of grid-connected PV systems within their service territories.
