The snow melting on your panels actually acts as a lubricant between the snow mass and the panel surface, which makes the solar panel a completely frictionless, slick surface that's the perfect candidate to allow that snow mass to come barreling off your roof.
The Emerging Relationship between Distributed Energy Resources and the Transmission System
UL works with industry leaders to develop a new standard for microgrids, blending in-lab product testing with on-site field evaluations.
A customer can subscribe to as little as single panel or enough to zero-out their utility bill.
The global transportation fleet is turning electric faster than anyone could have imagined only a year ago.
Laura A. ShepardÂ for Popular Science: Â Picture a giant toilet bowl looming larger than life outside the UN headquarters in New York. It sounds like an absurd scene, but the stunt from three years ago was not a childish prank. It was a serious statement to mark the first World Toilet Day and raise awareness of the fact that one third of the world's population lacks access to toilets. Addressing the global sanitation crisis is a top priority among the UN'sÂ Sustainable Development Goals, and it now has an exciting solution. In fact, science may soon make your toilet bowl a viable alternative energy source. Your flushes can produce two or three gallons of biofuel per year when the wastewater is treated using a process, developed scientists and engineers at the Department of Energy'sÂ Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, called hydro-thermal liquefaction (HTL). HTL emulates the way crude oil forms naturally, when biomass decays under high pressure and heat for millions of yearsâ€Š-â€Šbut it only takes 45 minutes. Â Cont'd...
The Emerging Relationship between Distributed Energy Resources and the Transmission System.
Many companies don't realize that they can generate their own power on-site and in a cleaner and more cost-effective way.
Nuclear fusion has several advantages over nuclear fission. There are no carbon emissions. It is a very energy efficient system and provides abundant fuel.
Berkeley Lab study shows significant potential for further turbine scaling.
Avery Thompson for Popular Mechanics: The first tidal generator in North America has gone online this month in the Bay of Fundy, and is expected to generate enough electricity to power 500 homes. While most hydro generators harness the energy of falling water, or the energy of the waves, tidal power uses the energy of the high and low tides. At the Bay of Fundy in Nova Scotia, which has the largest tides in the world, that energy is being harnessed to generate 2 megawatts of electrical power. In the Bay of Fundy, the difference between high and low tide is about 56 feet. Approximately 115 billion tons of water flow in and out of the bay every tidal period. Two renewable energy developers, OpenHydro and Emera, decided to build turbines on the seafloor that could harness that power. Cont'd...
Just southwest of Denver International Airport (DEN), PeĂ±a Station NEXT is an almost-400-acre, transit-oriented development destined to become one of America's leading smart, sustainable mixed-use communities.
Faster-responding storage allows us to operate the grid more efficiently, instantly balancing fluctuating supply and dynamic demand.
Nanostructure-based coating technology provides increased energy efficiency while minimizing costs.
The number of metrics measured by the Lufft's weather stations in combination with the high accuracy of the sensors gives our customers the ability to forecast short-term and long-term generation capabilities of their site with a high degree of confidence.

EDF Renewables offers the same innovative solutions that maximize the performance of our own 5.2 GW of installed projects. Because we're not an equipment manufacturer, our recommendations are transparent and data-driven. We cover the entire project lifecycle: from pre-commissioning support, through warranty and post warranty operation, to late stage and decommissioning.
