Peak Oil, Foreclosures and Food

Peak Oil is the maximum rate at which we can pump oil out of rocks. World Peak Discovery was 1964. Peak in US production was 1970, North Sea 1999, Mexico 2004, Saudi Arabia 2005.

Power vs. Emissions - The Genset Tug of War

The main challenge for manufacturers of diesel engines and generator sets is thus to reduce the level of harmful substances, while maintaining similar or better performance levels.

The Nature of Grid Tied PV

Grid-tied PV systems without energy storage do not reduce load in a substantial and predictable way, which will be a keystone of sustainable energy policy. We will need to institute three main objectives to reduce greenhouse gasses and localize power production to facilitate smaller, efficient local power plants.

Tire Derived Fuel

With the fossil fuel prices increasing rapidly, the waste from scrap tires will certainly be increasingly be made use of. Developing innovative and economical as well as effective systems for TDF usage is and will always be a challenge to the business.

INTERVIEW - STATUS OF THE ENERGY BILL - SCOTT SKLAR

Small business qualify for the 30% solar and fuel cell investment tax credit, and receive 5-year accelerated depreciation, incentives for 50% lighting reductions, use of combined heat and power are now part of the House and Senate bills.

OIL AND COAL IN THE 21ST CENTURY

The new century oil and coal companies will "Grow" their carbon fuels in bioreactors using safe and cost-effective biotechnology.

Investing in PV Solar Energy

I see great potential in the nano technology area. It is my feeling that if there is a huge blockbuster technology that is going to emerge and "take over" the PV industry, I feel that it will somehow involve breakthroughs and application of nano technology to the area of photovoltaics.

Environmental Policy May Contain Traces of Nuts

Should we choose to have 20% of our power production ideologically clean, or 80% of our electricity needs atmospherically clean? The answer is: we should do both.

Hydrogen stations are springing up everywhere!

Spring has been a busy period for hydrogen fueling stations, with five stations recently opening worldwide.

Renewable Energy Markets Worldwide 2015 Driven by Climate Change

Nanotechnology is undoubtedly one of the key technologies which will influence energy efficiency

Will the UK House Building Industry rise to the Carbon Challenge?

The Government recently announced the launch of their "Carbon Challenge" which aims to create five zero carbon or near carbon developments throughout the UK in order to provide working examples to the building industry. The idea is to encourage house builders to implement good building practices in order to meet the 2016 CO2 emissions targets.

China's Solar Energy Industry: Polysilicon 2007-2011

China's 2005 Renewable Energy Law called for the country to increase its renewable energy consumption to 10 percent of the total by 2020. Without sufficient supply of domestic polysilicon, this goal, as well as solar cell export goals, will be difficult to meet.

Next Generation of PV is emerging NOW!

I think the PV industry will TRIPLE in size in the next 4 years and I think the Thin Film segment of the PV industry will increase over TEN FOLD in the next 4 years.

On Energy Supply, Human Population, Earth's Climate, and Financial Prosperity

By grouping appropriate items together in summary fashion, we see that 48% of energy is used in the home, in one form or another. The next big use is the 44% that is used at work in various forms. Finally, a final 8% is used in transport.

Photovoltaic Cost Comparisons

It is unimaginable to me that a technologically advanced civilization would readily commit environmental and economic suicide when we have most of the necessary clean tech tools already developed. Not effectively leveling this cost comparison playing field now is one step closer to that potential unimaginable outcome.

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.
