Labor Costs Are Keeping PV Systems Expensive

The ability to get PV costs down further will depend on bigger fabs and worker productivity.

Offshore Wind: Europe's EUR 90 Billion Funding Gap

We believe that European governments need to address two problems in order to get Europe's offshore wind plans back on track: the cumbersome permitting process, and the cost of grid connections.

Sustainable Energy: What's it All About?

The first in a series that explores the future of sustainable energy across British Columbia

North America Leads The Way In Innovation

North America may be making up for its reluctance to embrace a legislation-driven approach to transforming the use of energy by wholeheartedly nurturing companies pushing the boundaries of innovation in the sector.

Solar Technology - The Bright Spot In Homeland Security

Homeland Security and the Department of Defense Initiatives Have Led to Further Innovations in the Renewable Energy Sector

Small Hybrid Solar And Wind Energy Systems

The small hybrid solar and wind energy system at NREL's Outdoor Test Facility produces 1,400 watts of power from solar and 900 watts from the wind turbine, enough to power a refrigerator, lights, heaters, air coolers, computers and a radio.

The Hydrogen Economy And Fuel Cells

Fuel cells will be one of the key components in the hydrogen economy. They will replace the internal combustion engine and will convert the future main store of energy (hydrogen) to power when it is needed.

Energy Capital VS Energy Income

The major difference between the financial and the energy world is that our current energy capital IS NOT replaceable; it is by it's very nature "non-renewable". As a result, our job as managers of our planet's energy portfolio is to create an "energy balance sheet" that has the proper mix of fossil fuels and renewable energy sources.

NEW ENERGY BILL: Reducing Our Dependence On Foreign Oil

The lion's share of oil consumption stems from transportation needs. In 2002, the transportation sector accounted for about 68% of total petroleum use with gasoline accounting for two-thirds of the petroleum consumed in the transportation sector.

One Year After The Big Blackout Alternative Energy Makes Gains

As last year's blackout showed, whenever what we know and trust fails us, we immediately seek out the alternatives. Which meant that stocks in alternative energy companies spiked significantly in the days following the blackout.

WHAT AMERICA NEEDS NOW

"We are like tenant farmers chopping down the fence around our house for fuel when we should be using Nature's inexhaustible sources of energy - sun, wind and tide. I'd put my money on the sun and solar energy. What a source of power! I hope we don't have to wait until oil and coal run out before we tackle that." - Thomas Alva Edison (1847 - 1931)

Science, Technology, And The Environmental Revolution

As a professional, technical, and scientific service provider, ESA connects the best products, services and knowledge from the environmental industry to businesses and communities nationwide.

The Hydrogen Highway

The fuel of the future, according to many, is hydrogen. And recent announcements from California to Canada suggest the West coast will be the first to embrace this vision.

Can Electricity Become A Fixed Cost?

The present commodity nature of electricity is being replaced by a decentralized model where homeowners can supply their own power using their own equipment. This changes the variable and volatile cost of electricity in a "fixed" cost which never goes up.

The Hydrogen Economy And Fuel Cells

Fuel cells will be one of the key components in the hydrogen economy. They will replace the internal combustion engine and will convert the future main store of energy (hydrogen) to power when it is needed.

US Battery - Solar RE L16XC Renewable Energy Battery

US Battery - Solar RE L16XC Renewable Energy Battery

Our batteries have Xtreme thick plates with (XC Diamond Plate Technology) added to them. They have been designed for hours of heavy discharge each day, followed by a fast recharge during the daylight hours. Very few batteries can take the grueling deep discharge-recharge cycle every day for long periods of time. U.S. Battery has proven time and time again that our solar battery line can stand up to this type of battery torture day in and day out for years to come. When you demand reliable energy storage count on U.S. Battery every time!
