The future of the International Solar Alliance, known as the ISA, looks bright. The organization is set to become official on Dec. 6, 2017. On the first day the ISA agreement was opened to other countries in Marrakesh, Morocco, it received 15 signatures.
Fox News: A plan to build scores of offshore, electricity-generating windmills within eyesight of the Kennedy compound and numerous other tony properties in one of America's wealthiest, and most scenic areas, is officially dead in the water.
Harvesting energy from space might be a long way off, but there are many technologies that already exist to make this endeavor achievable. While we don't know the future of harvesting energy from space, it is stimulating to see such ideas.
Sunshine for Mines works as a thought leadership group, industry consultant, and technical advisor for mining companies and mine sites that are interested in how renewable energy can help improve both their economic bottom line and their environmental bottom line.
John Fitzgerald Weaver for Electrek: The smart window lowers building temperatures by shifting from clear to opaque under strong sunlight. When the shift to opaque occurs, the solar prototype begins electricity production.
Karen Graham for Digital Journal: An agrophotovoltaics (APV) pilot project conducted at Lake Constance has proven that farming and the use of solar panels can be compatible.
There have been three key eras of PV technology development: PV1.0, marked by the birth of the silicon PV cell and exploration around the application of clean energy; PV2.0, which brought about the global mass commercialization of solar and more affordable yet lower quality module technologies; and PV3.0, the era we are just now entering.
The Soiland Company's solar project exceeded the company's production goals, with 2,096 kWh peak day production to date (offsetting quarry demand as early as 7:00AM). Matching the system's annual production would require a 330kW+ fixed array, or an additional 528 PV panels.
Julian Spector for GTM: "The world's largest gridscale battery - the Hornsdale Power Reserve battery - charged for the first time at 8.36am and reached 31 MW in 2 mins," tweeted Audrey Zibelman, the leader of Australia's energy market operator, on Friday.
Facilities managers at large facilities often have the challenging task of managing all the flow energy in their facility with the mandate from upper management to save money on energy costs.
Drone-based inspections provide cost reduction and revenue enhancement opportunities of over $600/turbine when compared to ground-based inspections. The savings value is two folds ($1200/turbine) when compared to corrective/reactionary maintenance.
Rhett Alain for Wired: How much power and how much energy (those are two different things) could you get from solar panels on the trailer?
You can use warmth trapped within the earth's crust to heat your house. Installers bury pipes underground, then fill those pipes with water. The water absorbs the earth's heat, warms up and can then be pumped - as warm air - into your house.
John Fitzgerald Weaver for Electrek: The ultra-environmentalist solar installation is seemingly 7-8% efficient, weighs 1/10th the weight of a standard solar panel and is held to the roof via an adhesive sticker on the backside of the panel.
AACPS is the fifth largest public school district in Maryland. At any one time, it is educating approximately 82,000 students in its 125 schools, shepherded by its administrative staff spread over nine buildings.
