Using Particle Accelerator Technology to Manufacture Solar Cells

This technique is projected to reduce solar panel manufacturing costs by upwards of 60% compared to industry standards, while making them 25% more efficient, and resulting in a very cost-effective source of energy.

Can We Place Solar Panels in Space?

Since clouds, atmosphere and nighttime are absent in space, satellite-based solar panels would be able to capture and transmit substantially more energy than terrestrial solar panels.

Clean Energy Investment in 2016 Undershoots Last Year's Record

Investment slowdowns in China and Japan, as well as further reduction in the cost of solar, mean 2016 investment will fall well short of 2015's upwardly revised $348.5bn

Africa's Off-grid Solar Market Is Booming

Investors will need to understand the differences between on-grid and off-grid solar. And a long term proof of bankability of the off-grid solar sector is still needed.

Solar Energy Becoming More Predictable Thanks to Forecasting

Ultimately, the use of forecasting allowed the plant operator to send commitments in line with what is required by the grid operator.

Maintenance and Lubrication of Wind Turbines

Wind turbine gearboxes are challenging to maintain because they are often in remote locations, at elevated heights, and operating under extreme conditions.

New SMART Wind Roadmap Aims to Expand U.S. Wind Turbine Manufacturers' Reach

Through the consensus-based roadmapping process, the SMART Wind Consortium has linked together more than 2 dozen distributed wind energy equipment manufacturers

With Skilled Volunteers and a High-Performing Kyocera Solar Array, Fallbrook Seventh-day Adventist Church Slashes Energy Costs

The 30kW grid-tie system uses 126 Kyocera solar modules and is currently supplying more power to the grid than the church consumes.

Coal and Gas to Stay Cheap, but Renewables Still Win Race on Costs

This year's edition of BNEF's long-term forecast sees $11.4 trillion investment in global power generation capacity over 25 years, with electric vehicles boosting electricity demand by 8% in 2040.

State of the Market: Wind Power Projects in Egypt

The broad range of wind energy project sizes and locations in Egypt demonstrates the increasing importance of the country as a renewable energy producer, supplier, modular manufacturer, skills trainer and investment opportunity.

Solar Signage Board

Since they have to be lit up at night, the advantages of using independent solar modules and inbuilt battery have many advantages.

The Pantex Renewable Energy Project (PREP)

The wind farm is playing a key role in helping Pantex achieve President Obama's directive that the federal government lead the way in clean energy and energy efficiency, with his Administration's goal for the federal government to get 20% of its electricity from renewable resources by 2020.

Middle Schoolers Dream Big with Their Solar and Battery Powered Cars

The race, sponsored by the Energy Department, its National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), the Alliance for Sustainable Energy, Jeffco Public Schools, and Dakota Ridge High School, is designed to boost interest in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) fields.

Moving off-the-grid and into a micro-house in the Southern Adirondacks.

New York State resident Matt Holleran refuses to be one of the many Americans paying one third of their income on housing. For that reason, he's moving off-the-grid and into his very own micro-house in the Southern Adirondacks.

What does the Future Hold for Thin Film Solar Panels?

The photovoltaic market continues to grow with impressive speed. Large scale silicon solar parks have been all the fashion until now but thin film panels are becoming increasingly popular and will dominate the small scale off-grid market and the booming building integrated PV segment.

SolarEdge Technologies - Solar Inverters, Power Optimizers and PV Monitoring

The SolarEdge PV inverter combines sophisticated digital control technology with efficient power conversion architecture to achieve superior solar power harvesting and best-in-class reliability. The fixed-voltage technology ensures the solar inverter is always working at its optimal input voltage over a wider range of string lengths and regardless of environmental conditions. A proprietary data monitoring receiver has been integrated into the inverter and aggregates the power optimizer performance data from each PV module. This data can be transmitted to the web and accessed via the SolarEdge Monitoring Portal for performance analysis, fault detection and troubleshooting of PV systems.
