Lacy Cooke for Inhabitat: Toronto Hydro is testing a grid-scale energy storage system that can be attached to poles already present around the city.
Tereza Pultarova, Live Science Contributor: The windows have solar cells installed in the edges at a specific angle that allows the incoming solar light to be efficiently transformed into electricity.
Being so far away from mainland Massachusetts, it made sense for Cuttyhunk Island to have an inexhaustible source of energy in the form of solar PV.
The latest step in SEV's renewable energy program is a new 12 MW wind farm located in Húsahagi, on the island of Streymoy. Since coming on line in 2014, the wind farm has increased the islands' wind share to 26 percent of total electricity production.
James Temple for MIT Technology Review: Falling prices, improving technology, and smart public policies are changing the calculations.
Nick Lavars for New Atlas: "I thought the dirt had to affect their efficiencies, but there weren't any studies out there estimating the losses. So we put together a comprehensive model to do just that."
Like the students' continual career evolution after participating in one of the most rigorous and comprehensive university competitions, the houses that have competed in the seven U.S.-based Solar Decathlons continue to find new purposes and opportunities all over the world.
NEXTracker is thrilled to launch our latest product innovation, TrueCapture™. TrueCapture™ is a revolutionary new software-as-a-service (SaaS) plus hardware offering.
Katherine Lin for NBC News MACH: A team of researchers in Australia have created an experimental paint that attracts water molecules from the air and chops them up to produce hydrogen.
Nichola Groom for Reuters: The U.S. solar industry would see two-thirds of expected demand dry up over the next five years if a trade case aimed at propping up the domestic panel manufacturing industry is successful, a new report said on Monday.
One goal of nanotechnology is to improve photovoltaic solar electricity generation. The thermodynamic limit of 80% productivity is well beyond the capabilities of current photovoltaic technologies, whose performance now is only about 43%.
Developing a predictable O&M strategy at the outset of a project will ensure the bankability and a robust ROI throughout the system's lifetime. Project owners and developers that thoroughly evaluate O&M considerations of their tracker investments will find that the higher energy performance, predictive analytics and long-term reliability of single-axis, self-powered trackers will provide a lower overall levelized cost of energy than fixed-tilt racking or conventional tracking systems.
Currently, wind generation sites are the cheapest version to build in the United States. Solar tends to be significantly more expensive to develop and construct. Creating one site for both forms is much more affordable, yet offers all the advantages covered above.
By Chisaki Watanabe, Emi Nobuhiro, and Kevin Buckland for Bloomberg: The tech giant thinks solar roof panels are the future for hybrids and EVs.
Edd Gent for Scientific American: The need for specially designed engines to run biodiesel is holding back the technology
