What Are the Benefits of a National Energy Grid?

Whether it's saving every electricity customer money or hardening our infrastructure against climate change, it's hard to imagine another project right now that looks as appealing, practical and unifying as developing a national energy grid.

When Cars Think for Us: Autonomous Vehicles and the Role of Energy Storage

In this article, I discuss the primary reasons why autonomous vehicles are emerging, what factors go into developing self-driving cars, and how energy storage is a vital part of autonomous vehicle design.

GreenBlu Begins $1.6 Million U.S. Department of Energy Award to Commercialize Adsorption Desalination Technology

New technology to make zero-carbon, zero-discharge desalination and wastewater treatment affordable

How to Lower Customer Acquisition Costs

Gone are the days of block walking and door knocking for new customers or paying for old leads. Instead, social media and customer generated reviews are lowering the cost of getting local and interested prospects asking about solar.

Interview with Kathy Nelson, Director, Technical Product Marketing & Industry Relations, Ondas Networks

The company is committed to providing mission critical communications solutions and it's exciting to be able to support that on a larger scale for multiple industries.

Case Study: Increasing Solar Inspection Efficiency with Drones

Comparing drone inspection time to relevant manual inspections across the 4 sites, we saw an increase in inspection efficiency of 97%. On a per MWdc basis, cost savings due to efficiency gains ranged from $1074 to $1717 per MW, for an average of $1254/MW cost savings.

Are Sulfur Flow Batteries the Answer?

In a flow battery, both the anode and cathode are liquid electrolytes. The anode in this case is sulfur dissolved in water, while the cathode is an aerated liquid salt solution that takes up and releases oxygen.

Solar + Storage Solutions

We're increasingly seeing solar developers including energy storage as a standard offer in their customer proposals, rather than talking about energy storage as a future option, as we saw for the past two years.

Wunder Capital Is Revolutionizing the Commercial Solar Market

Wunder Capital's Lead Director of Finance, Noah Kirsch, sits down with AltEnergy Magazine to discuss Wunder Capitall's approach to the small commercial solar market.

The Race for Battery Manufacturing Capacity: Ultra-Fast Charging Potential

Speculation on what the loss of control of battery manufacturing capacity could mean for western nations is rife. From limited access to affordable and sustainable EV's due to lack of battery supply, to potential loss of control over the critical resource of energy storage.

Solar Industry Unveils Campaign to Streamline Solar Permitting

With the support of industry leaders, the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) and The Solar Foundation today are unveiling the Solar Automated Permit Processing (SolarAPP) initiative, which will streamline permitting and slash the cost of solar installations.

LG Solar Unveils NeON R with Enhanced Aesthetics and Energy Savings

LG Solar Unveils NeON R with Enhanced Aesthetics and Energy Savings

The NeON R module features "Back Contact" cell technology delivering an entirely black panel that is aesthetically pleasing and energy efficient. The cell's seamless, surface blends perfectly into nearly all rooftop designs while the module's electrodes are positioned on the rear of the cell. Using LG's N-type cell structure, the panels produce 365W of energy, up to 7.3kWp, compared to 5.8kWp of the p-type cell. The module's new design minimizes LID, thereby delivering a longer lifespan and increased energy output.
