With ever-increasing panel efficiency, gross installation costs at under $4 a watt, and available tax credits to help defray the cost, there's never been a better time to consider this technology.
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.
David Grossman for Popular Mechanics: To build a photovoltaic highway, Chinese engineers are using three layers. The uppermost of these is transparent concrete with a feel similar to asphalt. Then come the solar panels, absorbing the sun's rays while protected from nature.
This article examines the hidden power-loss case study data from a utility scale array. The role of string-level monitoring in identifying hidden power losses and its use as a tool in maintaining a high-level PV array operational reliability will be discussed.
Futurism: The Byron Bay Railroad Company has created the first fully solar-powered train. While it doesn't travel long distances, it does prove that the Sun is a viable source of energy for passenger transportation.
Regardless of whether a tower company or an MNO is establishing a new tower site or upgrading an existing one, a hybrid power system is the clear answer to being able to balance customers' demands for network reach and reliability and operational demands
Alice Bell for The Guardian: A technique has been devised that allows electricity to flow directly from solar panels to electrified train tracks to the trains themselves making solar powered trains more feasible than ever before
Installing a solar system on metal will increase the modules' performance and decrease energy and installation costs as compared to other common roofing materials. Plus, metal also has other environmental benefits
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.
Indoor Farms of America Brings World's First Solar Powered Vertical Aeroponic Farm, Announces More International Sales
Indoor Farms of America announces the first fully operating, 100% solar powered vertical aeroponic indoor farm in the world.
There Is no experience like CES with the largest global gathering of innovation and the connected future of technology with 4,000 exhibiting companies-600 of which are new.
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.
Whirlpool partnered with Schneider Electric to design an actionable, global sustainability strategy and implement it across 40 global manufacturing sites. The key to the success of the program is data.
